    Default UK sex workers in 'dire and desperate' need amid coronavirus lockdown

    “ Sex workers in “dire and desperate” circumstances across the UK are continuing to see clients during the lockdown, potentially exposing themselves and others to coronavirus, according to charities and sex worker organisations.

    “We are facing a massive crisis,” said Niki Adams from the English Collective of Prostitutes. “No one wants to be flouting the rules and putting themselves and others in danger, but those who are still working literally have no other choice.”

    On one adult website, there were 800 sex workers across the UK “available to book” on Thursday, with approximately 150 of those in London. Adams said that many of those would not be working, but would be using the site to keep their profiles active in the hope that potential customers could be persuaded to pay for phone or cam sex. But others had not stopped work because they had no other income, no savings or had returned to work when rent and bills were due.

    “We need immediate emergency cash payments to these women who at this moment have nothing to eat. We know who these women are, and we need to help them now, not in several weeks time,” she said.“

    The three “massage parlours” down the road from me have all had to close. I assume the “employees” work on a self-employed basis, but one wonders how much of their income was declared and therefore counts towards the government’s 80% assistance for the self-employed.

    (I also assume they don’t work through limited companies, in which case we know they wouldn’t be entitled to anything.)

    Spare a thought for nlady who's now stuck inside servicing her old man - 80% of normal wages for 160% more perversion.

    If it's not the client, then the business - always someone getting shafted.

    Open one yourself. Offer your services (for a fee) to the discerning fat bottomed ladies of your parish.

    Probably the worst time in history to be a brothel owner, since the plague

    As a general rule, banks won’t touch them(metaphorically speaking). Will all be cash in hand.
