Do NOT air the new series "8 Minutes" on the A&E channel. It is highly offensive & intrusive on the lives of sex workers.

Because if legal johns could report pimps if it is a trap, it would help the prostitute to get help from the police. I believe it would eliminate the pimp. It would help all the way around

This is ridiculous. At the very least, it's trickery that wastes the worker,'s time while exploiting and embarrassing him/her (and probably hard to find or keep other work upon agreement, after being seen on TV.) And on the worse end, it can put coerced women in dangerous situations later.

In addition to agreeing with everything mentioned in this petition I Know one of the "Advocates" and she's not this innocent little victim she's portraying... She's repulsive, the shows repulsive and I'll get as many people as I can to sign this petition.

Unfortunately they went ahead and aired it, and as I am sure you all know, they almost destroyed the lives of all the women who had agreed to do the show. They promised them all kinds of help and did not deliver. There's a new petition going here to force A&E to acknowledge it and provide them with the resources:

I'm signing because I am on the show and he promised money that he didn't pay if only I had someone to fight for me....

In North Dakota there is a place that claims to help called 4her. However, there is still no local or toll free number available for the state of North Dakota and we are not seeing a response to reports made.
I am seeing a pattern and am willing to share my experiences.
