Dating a sex worker
Maintaining privacy and confidentiality in research is also difficult because many sex workers may face prosecution and other consequences if their identities are revealed.
The variety in the tasks encompassed by sex work lead to a large range in both severity and nature of risks that sex workers face in their occupations.
Sex workers can act independently as individuals, work for a company or corporation, or work as part of a brothel.

Some sex workers perform erotic dances and other acts for an audience (striptease, Go-Go dancing, lap dancing, Neo-burlesque, and peep shows).
Sexual surrogates often engage in sexual activity as part of therapy with their clients.
