My Body's My Business

Vivian Kleiman

1992, 16:00 minutes, colour, English


My Body's My Business examines the impact of the AIDS Crisis on street prostitutes. It features several prostitutes and ex-prostitutes who tell their stories about keeping safe on the streets with their "dates" and at home with their boyfriends. In the video, women discuss the various reasons men give for not using a condom and the approaches the women use to convince them to use rubbers. When all else fails, My Body's My Business reveals a hooker's secret: how to put a condom on a guy without his knowledge -- a controversial practice not agreed on by all. It's a story of women becoming empowered to gain a voice in all aspects of their lives.
