Synopsis:

More and more normal women in Israel choose an alternative way

to supplement their incomes so they can make it through the month.

They do this by meeting men for sex in exchange for financial support.

Women today are more independent, stronger and braver.

For the past year I accompanied M, a 40-year-old divorcee and mother

of a 9-year-old girl, who works full-time as a sales manager and supplements her income by having sex with men.

She could be a kindergartner's mother, a neighbor or a relative.

The cost of living in Israel is among the highest in the world compared to the average income. Most of us labor under a financial burden and pay a high price for it.
