Staying Safe As A Sex Worker

Staying Safe As A Sex Worker

Sex work can be a risky and dangerous occupation, and sex workers may face discrimination, abuse, and exploitation. If you are a sex worker, there are steps you can take to stay safe and protect yourself:

  1. Know your rights: Familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations in your area related to sex work, as well as any local ordinances or regulations that may apply. This can help you to understand your legal rights and responsibilities and to take steps to protect yourself.
  2. Use a safe workspace: If you are working in a physical location, such as a brothel or a hotel room, be sure to choose a safe and reputable workspace. Avoid working in isolated locations, and consider working with a trusted colleague or friend if possible.
  3. Screen clients: It is important to carefully screen clients to ensure your safety. Use caution when meeting with new clients, and consider using a screening process, such as verifying their identity or requiring references from other sex workers.
  4. Communicate boundaries: Clearly communicate your boundaries and limits to clients, and be firm in enforcing them. It is important to respect your own limits and to only provide services that you are comfortable with.
  5. Use protection: To reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies, be sure to use protection, such as condoms or dental dams, during sexual activity.
  6. Seek support: If you are experiencing abuse or exploitation, it is important to seek support from trusted friends, colleagues, or organizations like the Scarlet Alliance or Respect QLD that can help you with guidance and support
