Critic Consensus: Harlots uses its titillating subject matter to draw the viewer into a deeper drama about the intersection of survival, business, and family.

News & Interviews for Harlots: Season 1
I will say that Harlots, though undoubtedly rather over the top, is both well acted and quite wittily written.
[Harlots] is certainly audacious. And ambitious. But whether it will be able to pull off it's fine-line feminist balancing act remains to be seen; this show may end up groundbreaking or it may end up a train wreck. In the meantime it's hard to look away.
The show cheekily explores lots of topics, from the tension between religion and sex to the patriarchal power of a culture where men could plan their trips to the brothels right in front of their wives.
Harlots mostly pulls off a tricky balance of substance and tone. It's infinitely more jocular than...The Girlfriend Experience... but no less thoughtful when it comes to the dynamics of sex and power.
Shocking and fascinating, Harlots will keep you watching not for the sex and nudity but for the women trying not to sell their souls along with their bodies.
