This is a 2010 documentary film by two underground filmmakers. Prostitution is illegal in Iran and offender may receive from prison term and fines to execution but still it is on the rise.
At 4:36 the lady prostitute says:
"I had some problem with getting custody of my child...so I had to go the family court. I talked to the judge there and begged him...that I was hopeless, confused and morally down and told him that if he could help me to get the custody then I would owe him a favor. What do you think this cleric answered me? He said the only favor you can do is that you become my mistress. Just like that."This documentary has nothing new for me, I have heard similar stories like a zillion time but I am going to write a short comment on sexual bribery in our society and leave you with that thought.
Women have been reported over and over that they have been approached for sexual favour (even raped but I am not going to discuss it on this post) by clergies, officials, judges and so on specially in government agencies when they needed to get a job done. Unfortunately sexual bribery is a nasty social predicament that Iranian society is struggling with but surprisingly there is no effort to deal with this issue from government agencies. In fact government agencies are the one that exploited this issue and they are ought to blame but no one have high hopes from chronically corrupted justice system. It should be as a bit of a shock for people who know Islamic Iran with its compulsory hijab and though rules for offenders!
