Safe sex practices are only half the story. As a sex worker it’s also important to get your sexual health checked regularly. This ensures any STI infections are detected early and get treated. STIs increase the risk of HIV infection and can cause problems such as infertility if untreated. Early detection also helps to minimise lost shifts because of an STI, which can make working pretty uncomfortable. You could also pass them onto clients, which is never good for business.
