left swipes, bad dates, good dates, the odd marriage proposal and sore thumbs has taken the world by storm since it launched three years ago.Data analysis shows former popular US dating sites are on the decline as Tinder’s popularity soars, and it appears we’re seeing a similar trend here in New Zealand.But just like with any dating platform – including a good old meeting IRL – everyone has his or her own reason for starting up a conversation.

Decriminalisation in New Zealand differs from legalised regimes, such as that in Germany, since it focuses on empowering sex workers themselves, rather than the state, to have greater control over their work.
This approach recognises that sex workers are the best people to advise on their own working conditions, but to allow them to do this there must be a transparent environment in which sex workers can report their experiences without putting themselves or their clients at risk of facing a criminal record.
These are their experiences, perspectives and stories, told their way.
Introducing Asian men of all ages and backgrounds living in New Zealand, this ground-breaking documentary promises to be funny, wild, intimate and a little bit awkward. Asian Men Talk About Sex has been generously supported by the Loading Docs initiative, along with principal partner NZ On Air, the New Zealand Film Commission, and Te Māngai Pāho.
