Q: You must get compared to Helen Hunt’s character in The Sessions a lot.He says ‘your money’s on the table’ and she just basically verbally slaps him and says ‘I’m not a prostitute.’ She also talks over her shoulder to her client while she’s getting undressed.I just cringed at that, because this is a person who hasn’t lost his virginity, has never had any sensual contact with another human being, and she’s wrecking the undress thing!A: It’s certainly increased, and I think that’s just because there’s been media coverage and more people are discussing things.Scarlet Road has certainly broken the ice in a lot of families and a lot of organisations, and people’s sexuality is on the table.
