The situation of foreign ("immigrant") sex workers is the most critical

We have written before about regulations that also affect erotic workplaces, which has sealed the past year of all sex workers.

The epidemic has revealed the flaws and shortcomings of social support systems around the world and highlighted the staggering differences in the vulnerabilities of individual professions.

Despite the fact that women who make money from escort work are affected by the epidemic as much as anyone else, they are for some reason excluded from government aid programs around the world, and even more so, in some places, from health services.

Sex workers’ communities are therefore developing new strategies to protect prostitution.

Escort girls and sex workers have to start their struggle for equality from almost zero

The situation of foreign workers is the most dramatic in the sex industry

In particular, "immigrant" prostitutes (African, Asian girls) are at serious risk, most of whom live alone but are raising children, and who also face racism and language barriers in their administration.

Worldwide, they may also fear that applying to the authorities could result in deportation or the issuance of a work permit. However, trying to continue working illegally can have even more serious consequences.

Reality is harsh and inhumane worldwide, with very few exceptions

Authorities actions vary from country to country, but are mostly restrictive. In Mexico, urban poverty pushes or drives many back to sex work, but no one provides the health conditions for it.

The advocacy organization also knows about educated, graduate, multilingual women who are forced to take to the streets by losing their jobs.

It is a matter of concern that even Norway has received reports of open persecution, arrests, fines and even expulsions of prostitutes.

In the Netherlands, it provoked anger and protest among sex workers that Prime Minister Rutte did not want to open public houses, even with a major relief, while he was much more lenient with massage parlors or gyms.

Elli Kanellopoulou, a spokeswoman for Greek sex workers, said the country’s prostitution industry had suffered plagues that put the women concerned on the brink of famine. As only barely 10 percent of them had an official work permit, the majority dropped out of the social network, forcing them to engage in street prostitution sooner or later, with all its serious consequences (drug trafficking, violent crime, human trafficking).

A surprising exception is Bangladesh - an example to follow

Workers in larger erotic businesses have been widely vaccinated in Bangladesh and can also benefit from the aid. But even in landscapes like Uganda, which is known to be underdeveloped, they have realized that prostitutes need to be classified as a high-risk group and vaccinated.

The country’s dramatic experience of sexually transmitted infections plays a role in this.

What about escort job in America

"Erotic services have so far been assumed to withstand economic crises and recessions." Says Caty Simon, author of an American website for sex workers.

“During the bigger waves, the traffic even increased because that’s how many frustrated men sought relief for themselves. Now, however, there has been a blow that has attacked the foundations, that is, free physical relations. ”

As early as May last year, American doctors and researchers pointed out that they are one of the most vulnerable groups in society, whose full income scale is at stake.

Many sex workers are drug addicts or mentally ill and are potential targets of the worst forms of violence, so their vulnerability accumulates.

Legal brothels have been closed in America for almost a year now, forcing many to offer sex illegally, which in turn is the worst and most dangerous solution possible.

Mustang Ranch, 20 miles from Reno, is currently the only brothel to offer a lady’s company, taking advantage of its still existing escort license. The license allows customers to take women from the homestead with them - but only for no-sex togetherness.

Before the meeting, they measure the temperature of the escort girls and they wear a mask. In order to follow the network of contacts, customers need to pre-record the planned location of the date, usually a restaurant or hotel.

At present, however, only 30 women undertake to earn an income in this way.
