The Big Lotto Fund have given Swansea Uni a lot of money, to enable them, with my help to spend 3 years supporting and keeping safe students who feel they have to turn to sex work to pay their debts. Good stuff. Good people.

That’s why I’m using my experience of working in the industry to support a National Lottery-funded research project which aims to understand the needs and associated issues of student sex workers and provide them with an innovative new sexual health service. The academic research is spearheaded by experts in the field from Swansea University and aims to provide student sex workers, who live and work in Wales, with advice and support.
