Sex Work & Pregnancy
“When sex workers become pregnant they have the choice to keep working or stop working. It’s important to know the choice is up to the person who is pregnant. It is their body, their baby and their decision.”
Sex Work & Burnout

“It is never your fault if a client crosses your boundaries. You are not responsible for other people’s feelings or behaviour.”
Cleaning & Caring For Your Sex Toys
“Do you have a new toy? Before you throw out the packaging, check to see what the toy is made of. Each toy will be individual. How it is cleaned? What aftercare will you need to perform? What lube you can use to stop it deteriorating.”
Dealing with Difficult Clients
Most clients are easygoing and easily led by a sex worker when they feel that they are getting the services they have paid for. However, others will never be satisfied, no matter how much effort you put into the booking.
