The Sleepover Club Special: How Pleasure Depicts The Nuances Of Sex Work, With Director Ninja Thyberg

In this live Sleepover Club special, Halima and contributing culture editor Misha MN sit down with director Ninja Thyberg to discuss her debut feature film, Pleasure. A raw and groundbreaking exploration of the adult film industry, we chat with Ninja about her decision to use actors from the adult industry, maintaining safety on set, challenging conceptions about porn, how she went from anti-porn activist to advocate, and much more.

We've also teamed up with MUBI to offer 30 free days of MUBI to all podcast listeners, meaning you can check out the film and join in our digital watch party this Monday, 20th, over on our instagram @polyesterzine. Click here to watch the film! Pleasure is now showing on MUBI in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and Latin America
