Teenage orphan, Opal, is an online sex performer at Sex Media in Sangbashi, China. Innocent, abused and in fear, she and best friend, Xian, attempt to take justice into their own hands. But in the oppressive secret world of Sex Media, no girl has the monopoly on punishment.
Lonely Simon Webber lives with his retired parents in Edgewood, Kentucky. He is addicted to pornography. To sate secret fetishes, he logs onto Sex Media and selects GIRL with LONG LOOSE HAIR.
On the other side of the world, teenage orphan, Opal Sang, arrives on the doorstep of an abandoned tower block in Sangbashi, a concrete wilderness once dubbed ‘The Dubai of Northern China’. She is given her first assignment: to dance, near-naked and nervous, for the benefit of a stranger in America watching on his bedroom webcam. Opal thinks she made the right decision coming here, but something deep inside worries her…
Opal meets Xian Yu, an ex-student who learned to suppress her rebellious streak to avoid the violent temper of manager, Ramirez. Xian is resilient and experienced, but when she finds Opal’s body – alive, yet drugged and abused – she decides the time has come to do more than survive. As the two friends enact their ambitious plan, they dream only of justice and freedom, but in reality, their precious futures hang from a fast-unravelling thread.
Sex Media is a fictional, yet deeply shocking portrayal of the global sex trade at its rawest.
