Still Seeing Clients

IF YOU  ARE STILL SEEING CLIENTS

Please contact us now to discuss your situation and options.  We will do whatever we can to help or advise you.  

You do not have to give personal details if you just need brief advice and information.

Some people are changing to non-contact options such as cam work, video chat services, phone sex or pay per view content.  This can be a risk to your privacy if you can be easily recognised.  Remember clients can take screen shots and some apps mean the call can be recorded.

For more information on safety and privacy when working online click here 

We are happy to offer further advice or support around this.

If you are seeing clients in person and feel you absolutely cannot change this

1. Screen clients before you meet. Refuse to see them if:

  • – They have had a temperature, a continuous cough, difficulty breathing or fatigue in the last 2 weeks. 
  • – They have had any contact with anyone else in the last 2 weeks who has had these symptoms.

2. Condoms protect against HIV and other STIs, but COVID-19 is transmitted in breath droplets.

  • – Some people may not show symptoms,  but can pass on COVID-19.
  • – If you go to someone else’s home,  or car or if you allow them in to your own home, this  will put you and other people you have contact with at risk of COVID-19.  
  • – It is also a risk to meet someone outdoors if you cannot stay 2 metres apart.

3. Make sure you talk to your client before you meet them about and what you expect from them to keep both of you safe from getting or passing on COVID-19.

4. Make sure the room is well ventilated and if possible, keep windows open.

5. You should both wash your hands before you meet.

6. If clients come to your home, ask them to leave their clothes at the door and shower or wash on arrival. 

7. Wash / disinfect any surfaces, equipment or clothing they have contact with before they arrive and after they leave. 

8. Services  where you can keep a distance of more than 2 metres (6ft)  are a safer option – this could include:

  • – strip tease,
  • – body worship
  • – some fantasy or role play
  • – mutual masturbation

If this works with your client and you can work out alternative payment arrangements– you could discuss doing future sessions over video chat (such as Whattsapp, Facetime or zoom).   We can offer advice about how to reduce risk to your privacy.

If you feel you really cannot avoid sexual contact services

1. Opt for sexual services or positions with less face-to-face contact: 

  • – Erotic massage
  • – doggy style
  • – cowgirl

2. Avoid kissing or close contact with each other’s faces.

3. You should both try not to touch your face or each other’s faces.

After the service, you should both wash your hands with soap and hot water for more than 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser (at least 60% alcohol). 

Wash any towels, bedding, surfaces or equipment that they have had contact with.
