Sex work is providing sexual/erotic services in exchange for payment. This includes having sex with a paying client, but also refers to services like webcamming, phone sex, porn performance, stripping and erotic dancing.
PROUDmembers are sex workers who work independently, for example from their homes or outdoors. Others work via facilitators like brothels and escort agencies. Some members of PROUD work as cam models, porn performers or as strippers.
