Drink plenty of water to avoid irritation of gums, lips, and throat. Hydration also helps flush bacteria and germs acquired from sex.
Lubrication helps prevent irritation, and reduce risk of infection. Use lots of it. Be sure lube is latex, rubber, and plastic-friendly if you are using condoms or toys.
Always use a protection. Using a condom significantly reduces the risk of STI transmission. Be sure any open cuts or infections on your body are also covered.
Wear comfortable shoes that allow you to run if needed and clothing that doesn't have to be removed for sex. Avoid jewelry, particularly necklaces and earrings if possible.
Carry a small essentials kit that includes condoms, lube, hand sanitizer, and napkins. You can also use this kit for storing your clothes when you are with a client.
YOU ARE IN CONTROL!
Pick a safe location. Let someone know where you are. State clear limits. Stay focused on client behavior. Keep lights on. Avoid drug use before & during intercourse. Know your escape. You can always say no.
