But people on dating apps having unprotected hook-ups for free — that appalls her. For many, practicing safe sex starts and ends with using a condom during penetrative intercourse. But as we know from the countless dating horror stories out there, the worst offenders may skip even that. Folks really be out here on Tinder just to smash people on a weekly basis. And not using condoms, slangin and bobbin just anyhow The Toronto-based fetish model and kink professional is one of many Canadian sex workers who say that being good in bed takes more than skill; it takes exceptional hygiene, mindful communication, and a tool kit that goes beyond regular testing.
Like Canadians on apps, sex workers meet with strangers and navigate intimate situations. Some may tire of encountering judgment or ableism, like queer disability rights advocate Andrew Gurza. In an article he wrote for HuffPost last year, the writer said he hired a sex worker because he experienced ableism on hook-up apps. In his case, he desired intimacy without negative exchanges. Others may hope to act out a specific fantasy, are shy about sex, need a convenient no-strings-attached encounter, or require being with someone experienced enough to handle equipment and toys safely.
This is important particularly for those new to BDSM bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, sadism and masochism , which can involve physical impact. Story continues below. Paying a professional takes the guesswork out of casual sex or using unfamiliar equipment. Sex injuries make for hilarious viral stories, but are painful and uncomfortable to explain in the ER. A professional knows the techniques. Many people hire sex workers for simple reasons: they sell services that match a demand. This is something every producer in the industry should have on set.
I and ALL the companies I work for use this product. FSCArmy pic. Basic hygiene is heavily encouraged in the sex work industry. For some workers, clients may be asked to shower before their session or a freshening-up period might be built in. It should go without saying, but clean hands are a must. But, one need only turn to Twitter to discover endless anecdotes of cisgender heterosexual men engaging in sex acts with unwashed hands as well as jagged fingernails.
Dirty hands can spread sexually transmitted infections STIs like hepatitis A; sharp nails are not only uncomfortable when inserted into the body, but they can also cause tears that lead to bleeding and infection.

Informal knowledge-sharing is common among the workers Prefontaine knows in Montreal. Those who work with dangerous clients, deal with competitive rates, or work in unsafe environments, including at the street level, may elect not to use protection in order to maintain their clientele or avoid violence. One worker told HuffPost Canada that in order to be profitable, they provided oral services without a condom. Writer and sex worker Cyd Nova notes that the mindset that a single unprotected encounter will automatically result in disease is unrealistic. That may mean limiting how many times you have unprotected sex, cleaning toys as soon as you remember, getting tested as soon as you can, and getting on treatment if you need to.

Having a variety of sex supplies on hand ensures scarcity — or product preferences — never interfere with a good time. Dental dams can be used during oral sex, and rubber gloves can be used to safely provide hand ministration.
And if a partner with a penis complains about how condoms feel, internal condoms provide protection without restricting. Barrier devices can do more than prevent STIs or pregnancy. If you fall under this category, a menstrual sponge can provide intimacy without any of bleeding. Workers who menstruate often use sponges so they can keep working on flow days.
Whether you are a frequent user of a hook-up app or see new partners once in a blue moon, getting tested is an important part of overall wellness. Diseases can lie dormant and go undetected for periods of time. With that being said, you can not be sexually actively for months and possibly still be a carrier of something.
Educate yourself. A federally funded working paper suggests that STI testing is a major concern for Canadian sex workers. Of over workers surveyed in five cities, 97 per cent had been tested for HIV in the past. When asked if they had been tested for several common STIs, workers scored in the 90 per cent percentile. Four per cent said they tested positive for an STI and were receiving treatment.
She frequently goes to workshops to heighten her BDSM skills. As domming is a highly emotional activity, the professional takes measures to prevent burnout and checks in with her submissive clients to make sure their time together is as fulfilling for them as it is for her. Intimacy seminars and workshops are available across Canada. Sex shops like Good for Her in Toronto as well as Venus Envy in Ottawa and Halifax regularly host events to help attendees deepen their knowledge.
Her Montreal colleague agrees. Prefontaine said that, by seeing her, clients have learned to better express their needs and fantasies. Some test the waters by sharing what they want to try over . Others are vague with their requests, which Prefontaine takes as a to probe for more. Tips for sex workers: Go at your own pace, don't compare yourself to others, never compromise your sanity and mental health for anyone. It's not worth it. Some may forego or limit their screening strategies because of their status; street-level workers facing hardship may be less strict about their boundaries.
Even with stringent screening, bad dates can still happen and Canadian sex workers still face workplace violence that can be fatal; Marylene Levesque , a year-old sex worker from Quebec, and Toronto spa worker Ashley Noell Arzaga, 24, were killed on the job by their clients. For both these tragedies, advocates have blamed legislature for preventing the women from seeking additional safety measures in their workplaces.
Canadian workers often call for the decriminalization of sex work , as legal prohibitions and regulations lead to dangerous conditions. They may have timed check-ins with close friends or online mutuals who will take action if someone fails to reply. RT if willing to be a check-in buddy to a sexworker!
