What is sex education for clients, and why is it important?
Sex education is any education/learning that involves sexual topics. This umbrella term covers sexual health, sexuality, sexual relationships, and escort-client issues. Sex education also covers consent, STIs, sexual pleasure and healthy relationships.
You need to understand sexual education before working with escorts, as this will help you navigate your sex life with informed data. For example, it can teach you how healthy relationships work and what to expect from an escort-client relationship.
In addition, sex education helps you to avoid STIs, treat them appropriately if needed, and avoid spreading them to sex workers or other partners.
Sex education can also teach you what consent is and what sexual abuse is. This education can increase the satisfaction of your bookings, as you and your escort will have a better channel of communication to talk about boundaries and desires.
Benefits of sex education for clients in the escort-client dynamic
Sex education offers a wide range of benefits for both clients and escorts. Here are some of the main advantages you’ll experience as a client:
- Overall better wellbeing
- Reduced anxiety surrounding sexual topics & during sessions
- Healthier client-escort relationships
- Better STI prevention and the means to deal with STIs
- Higher understanding of consent and boundaries
- Better sexual skills and knowledge of the act
How sex education improves communication, boundaries, and consent in the escort-client dynamic
Sex education improves many aspects of your relationships as a client, but it vastly impacts the areas of consent, communication, and boundaries with sex workers.
For example, if you understand how boundaries work, you’ll be more likely to set your own ones to improve your sexual experience. You’ll also be more likely to understand and uphold your escort’s boundaries, as you’ll understand that these boundaries are in place for a reason.
When you understand sex education, you have a wider vocabulary to describe your sexual needs or feelings. This improves communication within the bedroom, as you can ask for what you do and don’t want.
Additionally, consent is a crucial pillar of sex education. When you have a strong concept of consent, the relationship is healthier, and there’s less chance of miscommunications or abuse within your escort-client dynamic.
Clients lacking sex education tend to ignore boundaries and foster unhealthy relationships. So, many escorts may avoid clients that aren’t sexually educated. Bear this in mind if an escort turns your booking down and take it as a sign that you need to respect boundaries better.
Sex education and the prevention of sexually transmitted infections
Alongside conversations about boundaries and consent, sexual health is crucial to sex education for clients. This includes covering STIs, birth control, and keeping your physical body safe during intercourse.
As a client, you should explore the following factors surrounding STI prevention:
- Safe sex, condoms, and contraception
- Frequent STI testing
- Unlearning shame and stigma from STIs
- Learning about how STIs are transmitted
- Using sexual health resources
From the added communication skills you gain from sex education, you can discuss any anxiety surrounding STIs. This way, you can discuss your status without embarrassment or fear before bookings. Transparency is key when working with escorts.
Sex education resources for clients and where to find them
The best way to get started with sex education is to find practical adult resources and start reading. Some of the best sex education resources for UK residents are available online.
However, you can also visit your local sexual health clinic or GP for personal advice. Universities and charities may even offer adult-appropriate sexual education sessions for in-person guidance.
Top online sexual health resources for UK adults:
Prioritise their sexual health and well-being as a client
Prioritising sexual health might feel challenging, but with the right resources you can learn more about your body and relationships.
Firstly, working with a sex worker who promotes healthy and ex-positive services is a must, as this will help you build a better mindset. Before you book with an escort, learn more about their services. Do they practise safe sex? Or are they not focused on sexual well-being?
Ensure any sexual encounters you have are safe. This not only protects you, but it’ll protect any partners or escorts you see in the future.
Challenges and obstacles surrounding sex education for clients
Since sex education is still disputed, many adults grow up without high-quality information about their relationships and bodies. This creates many negative stigmas as they lack a clear understanding of the subject. Stigma and stereotypes cause clients to shy away from asking questions, making it more challenging for sex workers to provide good knowledge.
Also, it can feel like there’s a general lack of access to good sexual health resources. This is sometimes due to location or lack of resources, which is more common in low-income and rural areas.
Cultural and religious beliefs can also affect sex education, as many may believe that talking about sex goes against their beliefs. This inhibits sex workers from having that all-important conversation about sexual wellness.
How to overcome these challenges
Luckily, there are some techniques to help you overcome these anti-sex education challenges.
You can address the stigma by engaging with sex-positive materials. From TV shows to books, there are endless sex-positive stories to explore, and these are designed to educate you and improve your mindset surrounding sex work and sexual activities.
Take advantage of work created by escorts and allies, as these resources are created with clients in mind. These resources come in the form of online resources, educational online content, pamphlets, and articles. You might even find educational content on your favourite sex worker’s social media channels.
Overcoming the challenges posed by a lack of sex education is difficult, mainly because a lack of education is widespread. However, step-by-step, clients can build their knowledge of sex education to improve their sex life and experiences with sex workers. Remember, safe sex is always pleasurable sex.
