Thumbs up Maggie Gyllenhaal calls for decriminalization of sex work!

Maggie Gyllenhaal is interviewed in the Elle magazine of Nov. 27th and discusses her role as a sex worker in the series The Deuce, co-starring James Franco. The series is produced by the creative team behind The Wire, David Simon and George Pelecarios).

One such thing she (Gyllenhaal) felt strongly about was to show her character masturbating or having sex off the clock. 'I thought that would be, in some ways, an opening into her needs, her desire, her agency,' she says. 'I didn't hear anything about it for a long time. David Simon sort of joked with me, like,"'What? Really?"' But he delivered a script with a story line about Candy's own love life, and even includes her masturbating and having an orgasm that's both vulnerable and profound. It shouldn't, but somehow it feels radical to watch a woman whose job is a sex worker focusing on her own pleasure.

In the same article, Gyllenhaal also states her clear support for the decriminalization of sex work:

'Who needs a union more than a prostitute?' Maggie asks of sex workers today. 'I'm quoting David Simon actually, and I agree with him. My instinct is to say decriminalize it and make sure everybody's safe, healthy and taken care of.'

In her research, she found that many former sex workers go into nursing. 'They're so comfortable with bodies, and bodily fluids,' she says with a wry laugh. (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Elle Magazine, Nov. 2017)
