SWAG; Sex Work Assistance Guide

Discovered a great site yesterday called SWAG; Sex Work Assistance Guide at http://www.sex-work.org/

This is their terrific mission statement;

This site is a work in progress. We welcome input and resources. If you have resources / writing to pass on please do! If you see a section you could add to please feel free to contact us as well ;)

You may add links to sex work resources in our links section. Find the category that best suits your link area and submit it. For a limited time it will be loaded automatically. Thank you for helping us fill our resources.

We are a collective of Sex Workers - researching information for ourselves and for women, men and transgendered persons involved in or considering entering sex work. We will use a popular education, non-judgmental framework. Basically - we are positive about sex work. We do it and we like it.. but this isn't a faerie tale, and we acknowledge that there are ups and downs. But we feel that we might as well tell it like it is - or as it could be.

We acknowledge that there are those who enslave and force persons to perform sex work and are adamant about seeing an end to this practice. More coming soon..

This site is dedicated to sharing information on playing as safe as we can, and on keeping ourselves healthy and sane. By exchanging information and educating each other on what the risks are we will learn to make choices that we as individuals are most comfortable with.

Other guides will let us explore how to protect ourselves from unsafe and undesirable clients, and minimizing risks from law enforcement. the list goes on..

We will also be exploring the Worlds of Sex Work - from street work, brothels, incall's, outcall's, bars, truck stops, phone work, stripping, fetish - there are many areas to explore.

We'll also be exploring the way we run our businesses - from agencies, collectives and independents to pimping, there are things which work and others that just don't.

Great stuff, especially if you have no mentor, or don't know a soul in the business; it's awfully nice to be safer and smarter without having to reinvent the wheel :)
