These tips are from sex workers for sex workers: The thing about self-care is that it is never one size fits all. Sex workers—those who offer services between consenting adults like companionship, intimacy, escorting, dancing, camming, and countless other sexual and nonsexual services—are as diverse a group as the general population, and their individual self-care needs can vary just as much.

The Hill: California’s state legislature this week sent a bill to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D) desk that would protect sex workers who report violent crimes from arrest. The measure, Senate Bill 233, passed the state Senate, 28-10, in May (2019) and passed the state Assembly, 30-9, on Monday (7/8/2019). The legislation would grant immunity from arrest to sex workers reporting crimes such as rape, either as victims or witnesses. It would also remove a provision in existing law that allows police to use possession of condoms as probable cause for the arrests of sex work in certain cases. Staff Writer @BudrykZack
