TIPS FOR YOU AND YOUR WORK

BE PROFESSIONAL

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Sei Ein Profi

Discuss the following points with your customers first: the meeting point & the cost. Always practice safe sex to prevent you from getting a sexual transmitted disease.

Discuss the following points with your customers first:

> The meeting point
> What you can do for the customer, such as types of sex practices
> What you will not do for the customer
> The cost

Do not let the customer bargain with you. Your offer and price are non-negotiable.

Tell your customer that you want the money before.

Be clear with your customer about what you do not want.

Say no to a customer when you have a bad feeling.

Warn other sex workers of dangers.

Warn other sex workers against customers who:

> cheat
> do not pay
> who treat you badly

Make clear arrangements with the customer.

If your customer is satisfied, he will recommend you and become your customer once again.

Behave well: if you were to steal from the customer, he can report you to the police.

Respect the house rules. Be friendly to bartenders.

Always practice safe sex to prevent you from getting a sexual transmitted disease, even during sexual intercourse in your private time.

VIOLENCE

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Gewalt

Did someone harm or abuse you? Do you want to report someone? We support and counsel you. The emergency number of the police is 117.

Violence is never acceptable.

Examples of acts of violence are:

> When someone forces you to have sex.
> When someone forces you to have sex without a condom.
> When someone forces you to have sex of some kind that you do not want.
> When someone violates your agreement. For instance, when someone does not pay you for sex.
> When someone blackmails you. For instance, when someone wants to publish your picture.

No one has the right to harm you, whether it is psychological or physical abuse.

Did someone harm or abuse you? Speak to a person you can trust and seek professional help!

> You should not be afraid: sex work is not punishable.
> However, each district has its own regulations. We are pleased to advice you.

Notable prints of your offender are visible on your body or on your clothes. This is why it is very important to go to the doctor before you clean yourself.

Write down the most important facts of the offense:

> the location
> the date and time
> distinct features of the offender
> Warn other sex workers!

Do you want to report someone? We support and counsel you.

The emergency number of the police is 117.

You can always call this number. Even without balance on your phone.

HIV

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Hiv

Always use a condom, whether you are active or passive. Do not let sperm get into your mouth. Do not let blood get into your blood.

HIV is a virus.

HIV destroys the human immune system.

If someone is HIV positive and does not take medication, it can cause AIDS.

AIDS is a life-threatening illness.

You cannot see if someone is HIV positive:

> Each customer could be infected with HIV even without his knowledge.
> Each sexual partner could be infected with HIV even without his knowledge.
> This is the reason why you must always practice safe sex. Even during sexual intercourse in your private time.

This is how you protect yourself during sex:

> Always use a condom, whether you are active or passive.
> Do not let sperm get into your mouth.
> Do not let blood get into your blood.

Did you have unprotected sex?

> Then go immediately to Checkpoint or to the emergency room of a hospital.
> It is too late after 48 hours!

Do an HIV test at least twice a year.

You can also protect yourself against HIV with special medication. We are happy to advise you on this subject.

Do you have any questions? We are here to help you.

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Geschlechtskrankheiten 1

Always use a condom, whether you are active or passive. Use a new condom for every new partner. Do not touch any blisters, inflammations or ulcers. Use a condom on all sex toys, such as dildos. Disinfect every sex toy after the sexual act. Use gloves and lube during fisting.

It is also possible to get infected with other sexually transmitted diseases during sex. For example:

> Syphilis
> Gonorrhea
> Chlamydia
> Hepatitis

Often you cannot see if a person is infected with a sexually transmitted disease:

> Each customer could be infected with a sexually transmitted disease.
> Each sexual partner could be infected with a sexually transmitted disease.
> This is why you must always protect yourself during sex. Even during sexual intercourse in your private time.

This is how you reduce the risks during sex:

> Always use a condom, whether you are active or passive.
> Use a new condom for every new partner.
> Do not touch any blisters, inflammations or ulcers.
> Use a condom on all sex toys, such as dildos.

Disinfect every sex toy after the sexual act.

> Use gloves and lube during fisting.
> Important: each person brings his own lubricant!

Get tested for sexually transmitted diseases at least twice a year.

You can get vaccinated against a few sexually transmitted diseases. For example:

> Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
> HPV

Then, you will be immune for the rest of your life.

The vaccine is free of charge in a few districts. We can gladly inform you on this subject.

Condoms reduce the risk of getting sexually transmitted diseases!

No one has the right to force you to have sex without a condom. Don’t abstain from using condoms because your client pays more!

INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO USE A CONDOM CORRECTLY

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Kondom Benutzung

General tips:

> Use a condom of the right size.
> The size of condoms varies from 47 millimetres to 69 millimetres.
> Use a non-fat lubricant.
> Do not put lubricant directly on the penis.
> Do not wear two condoms at the same time.
> During anal sex: Always put enough lube on the outside of the condom and on the anus.
> Use a new condom for every new penetration and for every new partner

This is how you put on a condom properly:

1. Open the package carefully. The condom should not be damaged.
2. Once the penis is hard, pull the foreskin back.
3. Place the condom over the tip of the penis with the ring outside.
4. Pinch the tip of the condom with two fingers. Roll the condom all the way down to the base of the penis with the other hand.

After sex, when the penis is still hard:

5. Hold the condom tightly at the base of the penis.Withdraw the penis with the condom still on.
6. Wash your hands.

Ahs Superguys Illus 170503 Fotos

Do you have an online profile? Then, ask yourself:

> How do I present myself?
> What do I offer?
> What don’t I offer?
> What makes me special?
> Which permit do I need in my district?

Important:
