Sex Sirens explores one of the hottest categories of the Dutch ballroom scene. While preparing to walk at the Circus ball in Amsterdam, four Sex Sirens reflect on their journey within ballroom culture, and their relation to a category that is all about seduction, sensuality, and sexual empowerment. As we follow them on this journey of self-exploration we get a better understanding of what it means to be a Sex Siren and why these safe spaces are absolutely necessary in the world we live in today.
