Rachel Wotton is like a lot of grad students. She works in her field while she studies, and her work is very hands-on. Wotton is a sex worker, one who specializes in clients with physical disabilities. It's a lot to process mentally, isn't it? We tend to think of the disabled as outside the bounds of human sexuality, but they're still human beings who need to be touched and want to be held -- and then some. Wotton provides those necessities to her clients, and also campaigns for the rights of sex workers. Her story, and the stories of two of her clients, are the subject of the documentary Scarlet Road. The film screens at 7 p.m. at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or as part of the Year of International Human Rights Film Festival. Admission is free.
