S£x Workers Reveal Positions That Might Help Prevent Coronavirus

Since March 16, Switzerland temporarily banned prostitution as part of measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

ProCoRé, which urged the Swiss government to lift the restrictions as a matter of urgency, said that the current ban was giving rise to illegal s£x work and creating safety issues.

Prostitution in the country is legal and regulated, but human trafficking and most forms of pimping are illegal.

As part of a plan to reopen the s£x industry, ProCoRé released a list of best practices guidelines earlier this month.

Under ProCoRé’s plan, sexual positions that avoid face-to-face contact, like doggy style and reverse cowgirl, are advisable. Kisses, and other face-related services, are not.

Sessions would be limited to 15 minutes and kept to a strict schedule. Rooms would be aired out for 15 minutes in between clients, and sheets should be washed after every encounter.

Lingerie would be washed with disinfectant detergent in between sessions, under the plan.

ProCoRé also recommended “wearing a mouth and nose cover” for all services.

Contactless payments would be encouraged for customers, who would have to offer their real names for a contact sheet that would be available for up to four weeks to aid with contact-tracing in case someone does get infected.

ProCoRé, in a letter to Swiss government officials, said that the negative effects of the ban on the s£x trade are “significant and serious.” 

The organization hopes to get the green light for brothels to reopen when the next round of lockdown measures are rolled back on June 8.

“In the light of current developments, we do not see the need for a new restriction on trade and we consider it disproportionate and contrary to the principle of equal treatment,” ProCoRé wrote.

n related news, s£x 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 s£x 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 s£x 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 s£x. 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.

While the charity’s usual focus was improving women’s futures, it was now simply trying to stop their lives becoming worse. One woman had described her fear of daily visits to the hospital to get methadone and of other people bringing infection into her hostel. She said food donations to the hostel had stopped, and when she spoke to the charity she had not eaten for days.

To that, Alimi responded that Simi is a hypocrite for sympathising with abroad blackness while ‘promoting local homophobic violence against their own’.

Lagos BRT operator announces hike in fares

Primero Transport Services Ltd., operator of the Lagos Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) says it has secured approval to increase its fares across all routes with effect from Friday to keep serving the people.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) had earlier reported that the BRT operator had withdrawn its services since Monday over losses occasioned by COVID-19 new transport guidelines that mandated it to commute only 20 passengers per trip instead of 70.

Earlier on Thursday morning, Mr Fola Tinubu, the BRT Managing Director said that the management would resolve all issues with the government in the afternoon and restore services on Friday.

Giving update of the meeting, Tinubu said: “We are going to increase our pricing effective from tomorrow Friday May 29. We agreed on this after our talk with the Lagos State Government.

“Everywhere commuters are paying N200 for a trip, it is going to be N300 and everywhere commuters are paying N300 per trip, it is going to be N500.

“We are increasing our fares. We have secured permission of the regulator (Lagos State Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).

According to him, the firm understood the plight of the people and the economic situation, but that the step became imperative to keep serving the commuters diligently and to provide a world class service for them.

“We are doing this not to punish anybody or to victimise anybody but because the circumstances we found ourselves forced us to do it.

“We need to make sure the company is on a sound financial footing, and if we don’t do this, the buses will not be available in the long run and there will be no way for us to fix buses and bring new buses.

“The business must be on a solid financial footing. Without this, the company cannot survive, and if the company does not survive, it will even cost commuters more in the long run.

“We understand that this is going to put some hardship on people but if we don’t do this and the company goes under, it will even cost the people more,” Tinubu said.

He said that the number of passengers on the buses would also be increased to 42 with no passenger standing on buses as against 20 earlier approved by the government to curb spread of COVID-19.

The managing director expressed regret for the inconvenience and distress the withdrawal of services had caused the teeming commuters in Lagos since Monday.

He said that the firm would be back in full operations and would put 320 buses out to make sure people got to destinations in time and safely.

According to him, the firm would ensure that going forward, the wait time and queues at bus stations was reduced.
