Sex Buyers In The Spotlight In ‘Buying Her’ Film, Premieres In New Zealand – Stop Demand


As a nation that has decriminalised and normalised prostitution and the buying of sex, the film Buying Her is both powerful and relevant.

A first-of-its-kind film/documentary, Buying Her explores the lives of men who buy sex and what drives them. First-hand accounts from both sex buyers and former sex sellers including sex-trafficked women are gritty and raw. Buyers’ journeys, including childhood exposure to pornography, predatory attitudes and sex addictions, are laid bare. Their stories will be the stories of many of our own Kiwi sex buyers.

Buying Her (run time: 61 mins) has TWO screenings this week – Auckland and Tauranga – as part of a World Tour.

• Auckland – Wed 28 Feb 2024, 6.30 pm – Rialto Cinema, 167/169 Broadway, Newmarket, Auckland

• Tauranga – Fri 01 Mar 2024, 7.30 pm – Luxe Theatre, 21 Devonport Road, Tauranga

Each screening is followed by a Q&A Panel and a time of Networking.

US-based Exodus Cry is partnering with local groups Wahine Toa Rising, Freedom from Sexual Exploitation, Stop Demand, MASSIVE/Men Against Sexual Violence, Korowai Tumanako, Rise Above, Safe Surfer in bringing Buying Her to New Zealand. More details here.


  1. Interesting. Hopefully it will meet the standards of their previous christsexploition extravaganza, ‘Seattle’s Bikini Baristas’.

  2. Until people understand that sex is a want and not a need they will be dominated by desires that can cause problems. By societies standards some people control their desires better but it is only when we stop treating/thinking of others as sex objects that a real improvement in the experience of mostly women subject to unwanted sexual pressure is possible. It is called the oldest profession for a reason so while I hope that people can learn to respect others by hearing their experience I doubt that it will make much difference overall.
