Posted on: July 20, 2022

If you are new to the sex industry, you will likely come across terms and acronyms that you haven’t heard before, or perhaps don’t quite understand. This language is a vital part of the industry, allowing escorts to list their services for clients and allowing clients to share their interests with escorts. The client’s understanding of the services that escorts provide is paramount to both parties sharing a positive experience. Escorts will have a firm grasp on their boundaries, so discussing any desires before meeting is generally a good idea. In some Australian states, it is against the law for escorts to advertise their services. Keep this in mind when discussing this.  

Learning the language of the sex industry is like breaking a code. Once you’ve discovered the meaning behind an acronym, you will quickly learn if it something you are interested in or not. It is not uncommon for this language to feel daunting to some in the beginning, however you will pick it up quickly. Like learning any new language, it requires a dictionary and some practice. Ivy Société has provided a glossary of terms, phrases and acronyms that are often used by escorts and clients alike. Good communication is an invaluable quality to have in the sex industry. Learn the language, and always be respectful, and polite.

Disclaimer: This blog is for informative and leisurely reading, written for the purpose of engaging in dialogue surrounding the sex industry. It is not possible for myself to speak on behalf of all sex workers, as we each have our own unique experiences and values. I write these words from my perspective as an independent escort from Australia, who has been in the industry for many years and engaged with many other leading Australian escorts. I do my best to be inclusive of all experiences, however I speak only on behalf of my own journey. Where necessary seek your own professional advice.
