Research - Participate Now!

PROUD is doing research on the stigma and violence sex workers in the Netherlands experience. We want to interview 300 sex workers. Do you want to participate?
Every participant will get €50,- (excl VAT) compensation. The interview will take place at a location of your choice. All interviewers are (former) sex workers themselves. Participation is anonymous!

More info
We interview sex workers in the Netherlands on their experiences with stigma, social exclusion, exploitative work practices and other forms of violence. Interviews can be held in Dutch and English.
The research focuses on sex workers who have sex with paying clients. We’re mostly searching for self-employed escorts, people who work with the opting-in regeling (for example at brothels, escort agencies) and people who do street/tippelzone-based work.
PROUD is the Dutch union by and for sex workers. Our research started in November 2016 and will continue until June 2017. PROUD does this research in cooperation with Soa Aids Nederland. The research is financed by the Ministry of Justice.
