What is Sex Work?

Hear from one of our current project members…..

"I first saw The Student Sex Work Project at Fresher’s Fair. I knew what it was for but I didn't join at first for fear of being outed and being judged.

A few months later and after keeping an eye on the project online, I decided to take the risk and join. I don't know why I was so worried. It really is confidential and no one knows who you are. I can e-mail, chat to other people who understand in forums and talk online."
