Top tips for indoor sex working

  • When dealing with a customer, look confident be assertive, strong and in control.
  • Drugs and alcohol affect your awareness and judgements so try to avoid them or stay in control if you’re taking them.
  • Carry a cheap mobile phone. You can programme it to speed dial a number at the press of one button. Make this the number of the police or one of your friends, so you can get help quickly.

Safety in saunas and private work places

  • Avoid working on your own in any establishment as violent customers are more likely to attack if you are on your own.
  • If you are on your own, pretend there is someone else with you. You could call to someone in the kitchen as you go to the room with a customer.Leave a radio on, and consider having an old pair of men’s shoes in your hallway.
  • Have a plan ready in case a customer attacks you. Know the escape routes to a safe place in the building.
  • Get the money before you provide any services. Keep it safe or hand over to a co-worker or receptionist.
  • Be clear about the services you are prepared to provide and your prices.
  • Always take an alarm into the room with you. If the establishment does not have them fitted, ask them to consider fitting them in the rooms or supplying the workers with personal alarms. Also these are available to purchase at Suzy Lamplugh Trust https://www.suzylamplugh.org
  • If the doors in the rooms have locks always know how to open them quickly. Never leave a key in the door as you could be locked in.
  • If you are not entirely comfortable with the customer do not lock the door.
  • If there are mirrors on the walls use them to keep an eye on what the customer is up to.
  • If you are attacked or start to feel scared try to keep yourself calm and get out of the room as quickly as you can. Don’t be too embarrassed to run out of the room with no clothes on if you have to.

Working as an escort or home visit

  • Always speak to the customer yourself.
  • Use this opportunity to suss him out and find out exactly what he wants before you go. Make sure you are comfortable with it. Be clear about the cost of the service.
  • If the client sounds drunk or stoned seriously consider not taking the job.
  • Tell someone where you are going and when you expect to be back.
  • If you start to feel scared or you are attacked try to keep yourself and the situation calm. Get to a busy place as soon as possible.
  • Try to leave a small personal object such as an earring or wrapped condom (remember the type) that you could positively identify if you decide to report the incident to the police.

Going to a hotel

  • Before going out, get the customer’s room number and name of the hotel, and arrange to phone him back. If he’s not happy with that do not go as he may have something to hide. Get the hotel telephone number from the internet.
  • After you’ve confirmed the hotel number phone the customer back and arrange to meet him.
  • Try to meet first time customers in a public place like the hotel bar particularly if you haven’t managed to speak with them yourself.
  • On your way out, pay attention to the area around the hotel and potential points of safety such as bus routes, taxis, busy streets, open shops, pubs, garages.
  • On arrival, memorise the layout of the hotel and escape routes from the room or suite.
  • Pay attention to details in the room and know the hotel room number so you could positively identify the room if you need to.
  • Watch out for any cameras that may be concealed in the room and don’t forget that many mobile phones have cameras built in.
  • Keep as much clothing on as possible in case you have to run.
  • If you are uncertain about a customer, leave immediately.
  • Try to get yourself or the client seen by CCTV cameras that may be positioned in the hotel entrance.
