Sexy Baby features three women and documents how the internet has altered their lives. The first story follows a 12-year-old girl who is savvy, thoughtful and, like most teenagers, is interested in the internet and social media. Her story highlights the challenges that come from social media and the need to balance sharing information while maintaining privacy. The second story follows a self-conscious 22-year-old kindergarten teacher who is considering plastic surgery after her boyfriend negatively compares her body to internet porn stars’. The final story follows a professional pole dance teacher and prior porn star who is trying to transition back into mainstream life. Sexy Baby documents how the internet and the adult entertainment world have created a new sexual landscape and have skewed society’s perceptions of what is ‘normal’ and beautiful.
