- Sex Workers
Sex workers have always been the target of people within in the community who see themselves as the guardians of morality, or who are offended by sexual practices which are different from their own.
However, in NSW, sex workers have proven to be responsible in performing their vital roles in the prevention of HIV within the wider community. Sex workers promote safer sex practices and educate clients on the risks and prevention strategies for HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Infections – STI’s.
The Touching Base Committee supports the principles of ‘Safer Sex’.
