Seeking Submissions to “We Got this: A Zine about Screening, Safe Calls & Buddy systems for safer indoor sex work”
As sex workers, escorts, hookers, prostitutes, pro-dommes/subs who have to work without much protection, we use hundreds of little strategies to stay safe. This zine is about collecting and sharing those strategies. This edition focuses on screening clients and safe calls.
Some of us screen our clients pretty extensively, some just use a simple vibe check. Some of us call, text or email a friend (or pretend to) to check in before and after we see a client to let someone know we’re ok–and to let our clients know that someone is watching out for us. In this zine we want to know exactly how you do your client screening and safecalls, and what protocols you have in place to follow through when things go wrong– especially if you plan for what to do in the case of a problem. Also, any other tips you’d wanna share on avoiding bad clients!
This zine is by and for current and former sex workers only. It is open to all genders and anyone who sees clients in escorting/prostitution/dungeon work/street work. In section 2, we’d also like to hear tips from dancers and strippers on ways to ensure your security when doing “extras” in the club.
I am also looking for submissions from communities of sex workers who are disproportionately impacted by policing and all other forms of violence. Trans women, Indigenous people, folks of colour, QTPOC, poor people and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to submit.
Click the link to get more information about the zine and the submissions. I got this from Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s fb so shout out to her for signal boosting it. Please signal boost around and feel free to click the link if interested in submitting. Also, don’t bother any of these wonderful people if you are non-sex workers.
Signal-boosting this. Be safe, y’all. Women and trans folks of color are especially vulnerable. <3
