Safe Sex Handbook for All Sex Workers

Safety is important in all fields of work, but most of them have clear OSH guidelines that explain what things you should do before you start. Unfortunately, it is not the case for sex workers. Many countries lack basic sex education classes, and people don’t know what to do to protect themselves from various diseases. This knowledge is especially important if you have many sex partners. 

That's why, here, you can read all about ways to protect yourself and make sure that your sexual work is safe and hygienic for both you and your clients. It includes showering before every contact, using different condoms for vaginal and oral intercourse, washing your hands regularly, and many more. Read on and make sure everyone is safe and satisfied.

Shower Before Every Contact

It is very important to take a shower before and after every contact. It can be a quick one, if you only have one client today, or a more thorough one if you are working for several hours. If you are working at home, you will have more freedom to make your own rules regarding this matter. However, you should always make sure that you are clean before the clients arrive and after they leave.

This way, you will be able to provide them with the best services possible and protect both of you from viruses and other pathogens. Showering is also a good way to relax before starting your day or night job. It gives you some time to reflect and prepare for the clients. 

Use Different Condoms for Different Types of Intercourse

If you want to be safe and protect yourself from unwanted pregnancy and STDs, you should use different condoms for vaginal, anal and oral intercourse. Different types of bacteria live in your vagina, your mouth, and your intestines, and if you mix them, you can put your health in jeopardy. Moreover, remember never to reuse condoms. 

Also, experts from remind you that you should always use condoms with sex toys and wash your toys after every intercourse. This way, you protect yourself and your clients from STDs and get maximum pleasure.

Use Different Lubricants

There are different types of lubricants, and each one is meant for a certain type of intercourse. In case of vaginal intercourse, you should use a water- or a silicone-based lubricant, which will make the intercourse comfortable both for you and your client and is safer for your vagina. 

For anal intercourse, use silicone- or oil-based lubricants, which make the penetration easier and more pleasurable. They also can help reduce the pain associated with anal intercourse. However, make sure to avoid using any numbing lubricants or sprays – in case anything happens during sex, you won’t be able to feel it and act quickly on it. 

It is very important that you choose a lubricant that is water-based or silicone-based when using latex condoms. Oil-based lubricants can damage latex, making the sex unsafe. You should also avoid using lambskin condoms, as they don’t protect you from STDs

Wash Your Hands Regularly

Washing your hands regularly is also an important part of the OSH rules in general. Whether you had sex with a client, went shopping, or simply used a toilet, it’s essential to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water every time.  

This way, you can reduce the risk of getting sick or passing the infection or virus to the client, making both your and their experience safe and pleasurable. 

Don’t Work When You Are Sick

If you think that you might be ill or simply feel bad, avoid sex work for a while until you get better. This way, you will be able to protect yourself from getting even sicker and infecting your clients or coworkers. 

If you come down with a cold, you should stay home and rest until you get better; you can also consult your doctor. Don’t be afraid to lose money by staying at home instead of working – your and your clients’ safety is much more important than anything else. Remember that you are only human and you have the right to be sick.

Be Careful with Alcohol and Drugs

Alcohol and drugs can make you feel good, but they can also lead to serious problems. When you are high or drunk, you can do things that you wouldn’t otherwise do, and immoral people can take advantage of you. 

If you want to drink alcohol, try to limit your consumption, stay indoors, and don’t go to work until you feel lucid again. Avoid taking drugs when working – they can make you feel worse than before, ruining both your client’s and your experience.


Being a sex worker may be a good way to make money, but it can also be dangerous. You are exposed to various diseases and infections that can not only ruin your health but also ruin your life. That's why it’s so important for you to follow OSH rules, especially if you have many sex clients
