FKA Twigs meets with sex workers

A follow up to this post.

After ongoing debate about the co-opting of sex work aesthetic in art, FKA Twigs has met (via webcam) with Selena the Stripper, Vixen Temple, and Black Venus. All three have been vocal on the recent upturn of stripper and pole aesthetics being sanitised for a wide audience, mentioning Twigs as a part of this. Twigs has been meeting with them privately in order to work on her intention for the future and make sure the appropriate people get their material dues.

All these women have written recently about this topic, such as this article by Black Venus in GalDem, which discusses the film Hustlers and how the real-life women behind it received little/no compensation for their story despite it being marketed as a feminist tale, as well as Twigs' film 'We are the Wxmen' released last month which implies that strippers in and of themselves have little 'dominance' over their place of work. You can read the full thing here.
