Hima B. – Filmaker is in the midst of filming a documentary, her first. It is called “License to Pimp”. It is about the sex industry in San Francisco.
Hima, a former stripper, is concerned about the image that the media is portraying of the sex industry. She states “… I think a lot of young women have developed a glorified image of stripping… strippers are glamorized in music videos, movies, Playboy. The models in those images are seen as being beautiful, making lots of money and having fun.”
“All girls, even young girls, want to feel sexy; the desire to be appreciated for your beauty is a natural one,”
“I worked in nearly half of the clubs in San Francisco in the 90s… in that time I saw them change from legitimate strip clubs to essentially brothels.”
In the 90’s local strip clubs brought in fees that required dancers to pay to work.
“At first the fee was $5 and then $25, which was okay,” stated Hima “But then it jumped to $200 a night. It immediately resulted in women practicing prostitution in order to pay those fees, and the clubs went right along with it, installing private rooms everywhere.”
