This conference presents the findings of The Student Sex Work Project. It considers the implications of stereotyping and aims to improve the social inclusion of student sex workers in policy and practice.
Friday 27th March 10am-3pm (Registration from 9.30am)
Liberty Stadium, Swansea
Funded by the Big Lottery, The Student Sex Work Project is the first study in Europe to provide baseline data on students engaged in or considering sex work on a national level. The data collated by the project will go a long way towards improving knowledge, and very importantly it will provide a framework to enhance current support systems for students in Higher Education in the United Kingdom.
This conference will be a unique opportunity to access the findings first hand with the results of the Student Sex Survey and the qualitative findings being released for the first time. There will be an opportunity to see a trailer of the project film with a focus upon student sex worker experiences. There will also be an opportunity to discuss the service delivery aspect of the project.
Steve Jones (Director of the Terrence Higgins Trust in Wales) is chairing the event with speakers including Associate Professor Tracey Sagar and Debbie Jones - TSSWP at Swansea University, Sam Geuens (Sexologist from PXL University College in Belgium) and student sex workers.
This event is free and will be of interest to academics, University support services, Students’ Union representatives, external practitioners, policy makers and students working in adult entertainment/sex work.
