Current or former sex workers: Why did you start doing sex work?

From the meeting on 1/23/14:

Reasons why women (all sex workers, but as their name suggests, WWAV focuses on female-identified people) choose to do sex work. They want a variety of sex workers represented in this project, so they have requested help from us. What they need is brief explanations/quotes from us about why we chose to go into sex work.

If you are or ever have been a sex worker (anyone who works in the sex industry, regardless of the type of work you do or its criminal status), we want to hear from you!

You may submit anything from a short sentence to a story.

You may use the comments section of this page to submit your answer anonymously. Thanks!

International Sex Workers’ Rights Day in New Orleans: 2pm Sunday, March 3rd at Washington Square Park!

This Sunday, March 3rd

SWOP-NOLA invites YOU to celebrate

2013 International Sex Workers’ Rights Day in New Orleans!!

Bring your friends! Bring your dogs! Bring your kids!

2pm on Sunday, March 3rd at Washington Square park in the Marigny

For International Sex Workers’ Rights Day 2013, SWOP-NOLA invites local and visiting sex workers (anyone working in the adult industry), allies, and friends to meet for an informal potluck/picnic/get-together in Washington Square Park (weather permitting).

If the weather’s no good, we’ll get coffee and/or daydrink instead.

This is intended to be a no-pressure, laid-back event where we can meet new people and chat about anything and everything
(or nothing) that affects the sex worker community on New Orleans. Feel free to bring your questions, ideas, and suggestions re: SWOP-NOLA’s purpose and goals.

I will be bringing Easter candy, because Cadbury Creme Eggs rock, and I can only get them this time of year. Also, they are both wholesome and kinda suggestive, which both amuses me and makes me a little uncomfortable.

You can bring whatever you want. It would be cool if people brought food (or hell, more candy), but don’t feel like it’s a requirement–I usually opt out of potlucks because I wait till the last minute and then I don’t have time to make/get anything and I feel guilty. Don’t let the guilt of arriving emptyhanded stop you from attending, or you’ll miss out on free candy, great company, free candy, and people who will gladly answer any questions you have about the sex workers’ rights movement. And free candy.

If you play an instrument, do spoken word, or you really rock at mime-ing, or you’ve turned crochet into a performance art, feel free to do your thing and be entertaining. We welcome whatever you want to contribute, as long as it at isn’t going to be especially disturbing to the other people in the park (i.e., no live porn, sorry).

Come for the free candy; stay for the list of reasons why decriminalization is the best approach to sex work policy.

See you there!

The Dirty: Sexy and Safer

From a workshop called“The Dirty: Sexy and Safer – Workshop on Safe Sex in the Queer Community on October 12th, 2012.

Lots of info here on BDSM, safe sex, kink, anal, std testing, local resources, etc. Click on the pics and zoom in (ctrl +) to read. Interesting and useful, even if you don’t identify as queer.

Info Flyer for Tabling: Escorts, Service Providers, Strippers


SWOP-NOLA info flyer for tabling –
Calling all local sex workers:

Escorts, Service Providers, Strippers / Exotic Dancers, Camgirls, Professional Companions, Roleplay / Fantasy / Fetish Professionals, FBSM / Erotic / Sensual Massage Practitioners, Adult Entertainers, and Friends in New Orleans

I made this flyer with the intent to put them out at an event last night, and then it was too late to make copies. But! If you’d like to distribute it, go ahead and print it out yourself. I was going to xerox it in black and white, but I guess if you want to pay for color copies, that’s on you.

Two flyers per page, obviously. That’s because I’m cheap, and a smaller flyer is easier to fold up and jam in your pocket. No one likes a big flyer, seriously. That shit is just unwieldy.

UPDATE: New version from 3/2015 (added facebook, twitter, email, removed outdated meeting schedule):
