A documentary about sexiness and the cyber age.
Sexy Baby the documentary
We're premiering at Tribeca next month! Incredibly exciting but also a bit nerve-racking since we need finishing funds in order to get there. This film is sure to create waves and spark a national dialogue -- you can help ensure that we make it happen! See FAQs below to learn more about us, how this project got started and what we will be using your donations for.
Welcome to Generation XXX, where sexy is everywhere from tween marketing to reality TV. A tight trio of stories gives the full picture of a society where labiaplasty passes for empowerment and online porn substitutes for sex ed. With easy access to anything and everything online, TMI plus technology is altering female sexual identity and self-esteem, especially in young girls. “I’m not going to change the world by being sexy,” 13-year-old scene-stealer Winnifred realizes, and yet she can’t resist posting provocative photos of herself on Facebook. As Winnifred tries on a sexy persona to see if it fits, former adult entertainer Nakita Kash sheds her alter ego and gets back to just being Nichole. Meanwhile, kindergarten teacher Laura preps for a surgery that many would consider genital mutilation but that she calls a confidence boost. Watch and decide for yourself what it’s like to be a girl in the world today.

We are a writer (Jill) and a photographer (Ronna) who met while working at the Miami Herald. We became fast friends with a great respect for one another both professionally and personally. We also made each other laugh constantly. We soon realized this dynamic worked beautifully when out on newspaper assignments together. We then began to toy with the idea of creating a documentary film. With a small test camera we saw how quickly people would open up to us about sex, relationships and the seismic shift technology seemed to be creating in their lives -- people were hungry for a movie like "Sexy Baby." With a taste of what adventures could be ahead, we took the crazy plunge, left our jobs and put on directors' hats. Because we had never worn these hats before, the next three years were exciting, exhausting, exhilarating, scary and hilarious -- sometimes all at the same time. And we made it to the finish line!

- Bernie vaginal surgeon
- Cliff porn scout
- Nakita porn star
- Paul Girls Gone Wild bus driver.
- pole dance mom #1 Nikki
- pole dance mom #2 Tammy (there are two more)

LET'S HOPE JILL NEVER MISPLACES HER CELL PHONE!
