Are you forced to hand over the money you earn to somebody else and you do not know how to deal with it? Then it is important to talk about it with somebody you can trust.

Causes may include:

  • Somebody lied to you or forced you to work as a sex worker.
  • Somebody keeps part of the money in return for bringing in clients.
  • Your own boyfriend or somebody else forces you to earn money for him.
  • You or your family are blackmailed, so you are forced to take on sex work and earn money for somebody else.

Whatever your situation, nobody has the right to force you to do sex work. Nor has anybody got the right to demand the money you earn doing sex work. It is important for you to know that there is a solution. P&G292 can help you find it.
