Visiting a Sex Worker

In Vancouver, sex workers have been subjected to acts of extreme violence and hostility. In order to ensure that sex workers are safe and to alleviate the possibility of violence, here are suggested guidelines and codes of conduct to follow:

  • Sex workers are human beings and should be treated with the same respect that you give to yourself and to others.
  • Pay up front and respect that prices are non-negotiable.
  • If you are paying for an hour but would like to stay longer, ask to renegotiate, but remember that only the scheduled hour may be available.
  • Condoms are non-negotiable and are worn for your own safety as well as for the safety of the sex worker.
  • In order to ensure a satisfying visit, be up front with what you want and how much you are willing to spend. Sex workers can not read minds.
  • Take a shower and clean all body parts thoroughly before your encounter with a sex worker.
  • Drugs and alcohol can diminish your capacity to have an erection, affect your judgment and may cause you to be aggressive. Limit usage or refrain from their use before your visit.
  • Sex workers might be comfortable doing certain things, but not others. It is imperative that you respect a sex worker’s limits and their right to refuse.
  • It is essential, during role-playing and domination, to have safe words. These are key words that indicate the limits that you or the sex worker may have. You must respect them as well. Words do not mean the same thing to everyone.
  • Be comfortable: if you have any questions or concerns, don’t be afraid to voice them at anytime.
