10 tips for clients

A visit to a sex worker will be even more pleasant if:

  1. You are polite and respectful.
  2. Your body is fresh and clean. Don’t be offended if the worker checks you for infections, or asks you to shower.
  3. You are not too out of it on drugs or alcohol.
  4. You both agree about the service. Be clear about what you want, and find out what the price for that is.
  5. You recognise that each sex worker has their own limits. For example, kissing on the mouth may not be possible.
  6. You always use a condom or dam for vaginal and oral contact. For anal contact use an extra sturdy condom. Always use lots of lube too. Sex workers are experts in safe sex satisfaction and afterwards it will be the sex, not the condom you remember!
  7. Be relaxed. Sex is the most normal thing in the world. Do not expect too much and keep your head. It is not a love affair and however pleasant the contact is, remember it is a professional service.
  8. A visit may not be perfect. You may be unfamiliar with each other. Take this into account and don’t expect too much. Remember, you can always shop around next time.
  9. If a disagreement does arise, remain reasonable and keep things in perspective. If you think you have a good reason to be dissatisfied, talk to the worker or the management, if appropriate.
  10. Please be considerate when you leave. Neighbors appreciate their peace and quiet.
