The Girlfriend Experience is a Steven Soderbergh directed film that explores five different days in the life of a high end call girl in Manhattan. The film follows Christine as she deals with her wealthy clients, her significant other and the nuance of her chosen profession. Christine, played by adult film star Sasha Grey, offers her clients more than just sex for money. Using the name Chelsea, she essentially becomes their girlfriend for a specified period of time, as the name of the film would suggest. She must also balance this with her relationship with her live in boyfriend, Chris. Eventually, Chelsea starts to feel genuine attraction to one of her clients, who is married, and she must ultimately deal with this unexpected experience of her own.

Chelsea doesn't convey much to her clients and we learn the most about her through her interactions with an interview she is giving during the course of the story. Ultimately, the real story is as much with the clients as it is with Christine. The reasons they feel compelled to pay for her services and what they ultimately get from the interaction reveals more about the human experience than the title suggests.
