Chlamydia: How Escorts Can Help Stop This Global Epidemic
When hooking up with a new client, one thing escorts are definitely anxious about is getting a sexually transmitted infection. Escorts have very strong safer sex practices because of what they do for a living.
For safety and health reasons, escorts and other adult entertainers should get routine tests for HIV and other common STIs like chlamydia and gonorrhea, as well as an additional panel of tests for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis.
The good thing is that most escorts get tested for STIs at least once a month, which shows they’re thinking conscientiously. This is not just for their protection but for their clients as well.
Gina, a young new Sydney escort said she came down with a case of chlamydia on her first year of being an escort. She took some pills and avoided sex until the matter is fully cleared up. It usually takes a week to clear up then she’s back in business with a clear conscience. She’s still quite a newbie as she’s been in the business for only a year and a half, but she’s much more careful now and makes sure to have monthly tests for STIs. Liz, an experienced escort in Sydney who has about five sexual partners a month said she hasn’t contracted a single STI in her years of being an escort. She makes it a point to casually look for signs of STIs on her client’s genitals like bumps, rashes or warts before any sexual contact. She also always practices safe sex because she doesn’t want to risk picking up diseases which can carry on causing sexual health problems. She will never have sex with a client without the use of a condom.
The majority of the escorts see their work as their main long-term source of income so they naturally consider how important it is to protect and take care of their body. Regular medical checkups are a golden rule for them. In doing so, they do their part and try to contribute as much as they can to stop a global epidemic such as the silent disease chlamydia.
Being careful and assiduous about sexually transmitted infections is a good idea for anyone having sex with a new partner be it an escort or a lover. Common STIs are easily treated with antibiotics and there’s always a chlamydia treatment readily available out there. While the testing isn’t foolproof, it lowers the risk of getting infected – combine that with condom use and the risk goes down even further.
