Program Notes

Winner of the Special Jury Award for Documentary Feature at the SXSW Film Festival.

Every Thursday night, hundreds of women gather for a potluck celebration and the chance to throw singles at the hottest dancers in New Jersey, The Nasty Boyz — featuring Satan, Mr. Capable, Fever, Young Rider, and lesbian ‘dom’ dancer Blaze.

This One’s for the Ladies isn’t just about the tips or the dancing. It’s a heartwarming story of friendship and the resilience that comes from community.

Hilarious, eye-opening, and breathtakingly sexy, This One’s for the Ladies is a virtual how to guide for letting go of your troubles and having a good time.

Critics' Praise

“Yes, you’ll see a lot of thongs, whipped cream and bare behinds — this is NC-17, after all. But what starts out as a fun romp turns into a surprisingly emotional look at the men who are drawn to the world of adult entertainment and the women who devotedly place dollar bills in their G-strings.”
— Amy Kaufman, Los Angeles Times

“The sexiest documentary of the summer… Eat your heart out, Magic Mike.”
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
