If you've been attacked

When you are working as a sex worker, you should agree with the client what services you will offer. This is called consensual sex.

It’s not OK for a client to have sex with you in any way that you did not agree to.

Examples of this would be:

  • removal of a condom
  • agreeing to have vaginal sex and the customer tries to have anal sex with you

If anyone makes you complete a service you have not agreed to or forces you to have sex against your will, this is rape or sexual assault.

There is no right or wrong way to respond to sexual violence. When your safety has been violated, it is important that you begin to feel safe again and able to make your own decisions. We will help and support you, whatever decision you make.
