CORE VALUES

IDENTITY

  • We are adopting the globally recognised categorisation of striptease as falling under the sex work umbrella which also encompasses working on Only Fans, camming, full service, glamour modelling, sugaring etc.

DECRIM
  • The sex work industry is an industry like any other.

  • We stand in solidarity with all branches of sex work including full service sex workers, escorts, BDSM professionals, porn performers, webcam performers, online content creators, burlesque dancers, sex chat line/phone operators, etc. 

  • We join the global demand for the full decriminalisation of sex work, for the universal safety and rights of sex workers.

SAFEGUARDING
  • We recognise and respect that sexuality is a personal matter and what is comfortable for one person may be triggering for another.

  • We are conscious of the need to safeguard children and vulnerable adults to protect them from the industry.

  • Meaningful consent must be the founding principle of the sex industry, and where meaningful consent cannot be given, this is a public welfare issue.

  • We stand against all forms of violence, coercion, manipulation and exploitation. We support and stand alongside all organisations that are working towards ending the exploitation of people in all industries.

  • We do not take the view that payment for sexual services undermines consent. We believe that offering/receiving payment for sexual services is a meaningful choice that consenting adults can make, like any other job/purchase in the marketplace.

DIVERSITY
  • We recognise that sexuality encompasses a vast range of experiences and interpretations, which can lead to mental, emotional and psychological wellbeing implications for many individuals. We therefore endeavour to be inclusive and compassionate of as many different perspectives as possible.

  • We do not discriminate against those with 'relevant protected characteristics' under the public sector equality duty: age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

  • We want the safe inclusion of minority communities within our work and activism.

  • We reject the assumption that all dancers are cis female and heterosexual and all customers are cis male and heterosexual.

FEMINISM
  • We acknowledge that women’s rights intersects with many other social inequality issues including race, class, poverty, education, health, immigration, mental health, addiction, and LGBTQ+ rights, among others.

  • We believe a person’s right to bodily autonomy.
