Playing safe

I am so grateful to live in a country that decriminalised sex work which allows me to work in an industry I truly enjoy without fear of prosecution and also provides legal framework to do so safely.

The PRA 2003, Section 9: Sex workers and Clients must adopt safer sex practices

(1) A person must not provide or receive commercial sexual services unless he or she has taken all reasonable steps to ensure a prophylactic sheath or other appropriate barrier is used if those services involve vaginal, anal, or oral penetration or another activity with a similar or greater risk of acquiring or transmitting sexually transmissible infections.

(2) A person must not, for the purpose of providing or receiving commercial sexual services, state or imply that a medical examination of that person means that he or she is not infected, or likely to be infected, with a sexually transmissible infection.

(3) A person who provides or receives commercial sexual services must take all other reasonable steps to minimise the risk of acquiring or transmitting sexually transmissible infections.

(4) Every person who contravenes subsection (1), subsection (2), or subsection (3) commits an offence and is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000.

Section 9(4): amended, on 1 July 2013, by section 413 of the Criminal Procedure Act 2011 (2011 No 81).

This means that’s you and I (as sex worker and client) are required by law to practise sex as safely and healthily as possible and this happens by putting education into practise.

This is how we do it

  • We shower and clean hands before starting a session.
  • Cover cuts on fingers with plasters and nails are trim.
  • We use condoms for oral and vaginal sex each and every time.
  • Condoms are changed regularly during long sessions and lubricant (not saliva)  is always used as to prevents breakages.
  • Sex toys are covered with condoms and they are cleaned thoroughly afterwards.
  • We don’t use the same hand on ourselves as we do on the other person ( this takes practise).
  • If either one of us is ill, has any kind of infection, has a coldsore, sore throat or had a dentist visit that day etc we postpone until we are well again.
  • In case of a breakage or slippage I have a action plan which I will go over with you if it happens.
  • I am very particular about my health and yours. I have a full sexual health test of bloods and swabs every 8 weeks and as a sexually active adult I suggest you adopt a regular testing regime also.
  • Let’s keep each other safe so we can all continue having super sexy fun.
