Daniel Hellmann, artist and sex worker, evokes in this piece openly his clients, their relationships, reasons which led him to exercise legally this profession in Switzerland. At the crossroads between documentary and fiction, Traumboy questions taboos and stigmatizations. With humor, interactivity and acuteness, it updates fears, fantasy and contradictions of an hyper-capitalized, hyper-sexualized society, and paradoxically unwilling to open a real discussion about the subject.
