All sex workers (male, female, trans persons) provide sexual services in exchange for money, expensive goods, safety, housing or food. These services are also known as exchange services, escort, pay dates or car dates.
For us, it doesn’t matter who you are, how you identify yourself, or who you would like to be. In sex work, what matters is ‘working consciously’, following your own rules, and full awareness of what you’re doing.
In the eyes of the Dutch law though, there’s a strict division: you’re either male or female. The possibility of a third gender does not (yet) legally exist here.
For transgender people, this can lead to some restrictions. As a transgender sex worker, it’s not possible to work everywhere. For example, there are specific clubs or areas within prostitution zones where transgender people are allowed to work. We can always advise you on these matters, and we are aware of the different situations.
Maybe you’re not sure if what you’re doing actually is sex work. You could be choosing not to label your activities. Or not identify with the term sex worker. Please, contact us anyway. We are open to everyone, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, or if you’re in need of assistance in any way.
