SUPPORT FOR STUDENT SEX WORKERS

A COMMUNITY FOR US TO KEEP EACH OTHER SAFE

If you are not a student but still identify with the sex work community, please do not hesitate to get in touch. This is a confidential service.

Dear SWERF’s, misogynists or people with negative things to say about a vulnerable group of people who are coming out to offer support to people in similar circumstances:

We are not here to glamorise the sex work industry. Whilst some of us have had positive experiences in the industry, some of us have had a terrible time. We are here to offer support and guidance to any sex workers who need support. We do not make assumptions about sex workers and we know that whilst some sex workers may need help getting out of the industry, others have no intention of leaving or are not in a position to leave. We are not here to encourage others to go into the industry; we are here to offer support for people who identify with this community.

People go into the sex work industry for a number of reasons, which many people may never experience or understand. We advocate for the decriminalisation of sex work because we are suffering as a community as a result of the stigma, judgment and lack of the support we receive.

Whilst some of you will undoubtedly have good intentions, prevention, criminilisation and the Nordic Model are putting us at risk. Please leave us alone. We will never attack your organisations, so please show us the same respect. If you behave in a threatening or abusive manner to anyone on the team, you will immediately be reported to the police and other organisations we work with.

If you are coming for support, please know we understand and will never judge you. This is a safe space and as a team we will do everything we can to protect and represent you.

For urgent support please contact admin@supportforstudentsexworkers.org and we will get back to you within the day.
