Date Rape for Pay: Sleeping Beauty Trailer

I'm a little lost here, so I might need some Pajibaid. Apparently, drugging a girl and selling her to men for sex, under the guise of an artsy fartsy film is cool. Don't get me wrong, I love a good, erotic movie--but after watching this trailer, I don't get that happy-horny feeling. I mostly have a desire to yawn. And when a trailer has to tell me it's "extraordinary," "sensuous" and "unafraid," the film is likely none of those things. But in all fairness, let me give you the set-up: Sucker Punch's Emily Browning decides to join a house of ill repute. Her thing is to take a bunch of sleeping pills and then let the men have their way with her. I'm a little lost as to why men want to have their way with someone who is asleep the whole time; aren't most men who see prostitutes married and looking for someone more exciting or adventurous than their wives? Is there a big market for sleepy women? The official film statement describes Lucy (Browning) as "a young university student who is drawn into a hidden world of beauty and desire." Here's the trailer, let me know if any of your special parts are left buzzing:

Sleeping Beauty also stars Michael Dorman (Daybreakers), Mirrah Foulkes (Animal Kingdom) and Rachel Blake (Lantana) and is written and directed by Australian novelist and first-time director, Julia Leigh. I don't know if she fell asleep and slept with somebody, but somehow her film was selected to premiere at the 2011 Cannes film festival. So what's the word, does sleepy sex turn you on?
