Reception

The series received very positive reviews from critics in Australia. The West Australian gave the show rave reviews, saying "the characters are fleshed out, the drama is feasible and the script is sophisticated enough to side-step the obvious clichés of the sex industry. While the setting and characters are glamorous and gorgeous, there are no Pretty Woman-style illusions about the job...". TV Tonight also thought the series was quite good, noting that "for all its empathy Satisfaction is like dipping your toes into a warm bath and sipping on the best champagne. It skews consciously toward the high end of prostitution to ample success. But like their wealthy clients, you’ll need to be a high-class customer of Foxtel to slip off your shoes first, an irony some programmers may have missed."
