STI

On this website you will find information on sexually transmitted infections (STI) and other topics for female sex workers.

STIs are sexually transmitted infections:  

  • In most cases these STIs are caused by viruses or bacteria.  
  • Sometimes a parasite or another organism causes the infection.
  • Most STIs are transmitted by unsafe sexual contact. 
  • They are transmitted through the mucous membrane of the vagina, penis, mouth, throat and anus or in the pre-cum, sperm or blood.  
  • You do not always know that you are infected, and thus can infect others unknowingly.  
  • Some STIs have serious consequences if they are not treated.  
  • Most STIs can be treated provided you react in time.
  • When your vagina, mouth or anus has unprotected contact with the penis, anus or mouth of your sex partner, you can get infected or infect others. Therefore we advice you to always use a condom or dental dam.

Some infections are more common among men having sex with men (msm). If you would like to know more about this, check male sex workers.

  • There are often no symptoms?
  • Also without symptoms you can infect others?
  • STIs do not just disappear?
  • You can’t wash them away?
  • It is best to see a doctor?
  • Most STIs can be treated well?
  • If  you have an STI, it is best to inform your sex partner, so that he can also have a test and, if necessary, a treatment?
  • If you have an STI, it increases the chance of contracting other STIs and HIV?
  • If you are tested and treated in time, it helps to prevent the spreading and transmitting of the infection to others?

TIP

  • Wash your sex partner, it gives you the opportunity to check him for symptoms of a STI.  These symptoms could be blisters, wounds, warts, itching or discharge.  
  • If you notice these things, it is best to refuse your sex partner, certainly if the symptoms are not covered by a condom!

Bacterial infections

  • Some sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are caused by bacteria.  
  • You get an infection at the place where you were contaminated, for instance an infection in your throat from giving a blowjob without condom.  
  • If you are treated in time, you can fully recover from this STI.

     

    Viral infections

    • STIs caused by a virus are dangerous because they can’t be treated by antibiotics.   
    • The virus will not disappear from your body so that complaints can come back.  
    • Not all infections can be treated.  
    • There are, however, certain means to deal with some complaints.

     

    Other STIs and vaginal infections

    • STIs caused by a parasite are less serious and can be treated well.  
    • They can, however, cause a lot of nuisance, and as long as you are not treated, you can infect others.
    1. Trichomonas vaginalis
    2. Pubic lice
    3. Scabies

    Also other vaginal infections often occur among women who work in the erotic sector.

    • These infections are caused by bacteria or yeasts.  
    • It is normal that there are bacteria in the vagina. 
    • Under normal circumstances the degree of acidity in your vagina is in balance.  When this balance is disturbed, there will be a proliferation of bacteria and you will have complaints.  
    • The degree of acidity can be disturbed by taking antibiotics or other medicines or by often washing your vagina with soap or vaginal showers.  
    • Stress and tiredness can also disturb the balance in your vagina.
    1. Bacterial vaginosis
    2. Candida
