Before the date

Only take necessities with you. Always have them near. Make sure there is always somebody else who knows you are an escort. Give him/her information about the client, the times and location of the date. Agree on the actions to be taken if he/she does not hear from you. Always have valid id with you.


Watch out for danger and beware of dubious clients. You should refuse any client you do not trust. Do not negotiate or date when you are drunk or high. The client may take advantage. You should decide on the location yourself. Choose a familiar place.

During the date

Avoid sexual acts in public places as it is an act of public indecency in The Netherlands, so it is forbidden. Call a client on his mobile when you are at his front door. Have him open the door and do not ring the bell. Nobody can play a stupid trick on you this way. Keep having eye contact or bodily contact, etc. In this way you will know how to arouse him and you can keep the situation under control. Check if there is an escape route and never have the client block it. If you do not like something, stop it.

In case of danger

If you are threatened, avoid triggering violence. If you cannot escape, do what they ask. Your life is worth more than money or possessions. Do not bring weapons; they might be used against you. Make lots of noise. Scream. Go to a place where there are other people. Call 112. If you are threatened, the police must act at once. Tell them where you are.
