@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Q1 #Otalk very limited knowledge, ignorance perhaps. Sex as work: Escort/prostitution (I hope these terms are not disrespectful as I want to ensure I remain professional) 😕
#OTalk @OTalk_
Question 1 #OTalk
LisaLew @LisaLew68971861
@OTalk_ @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Hi my first #OTalk
Cheyenne Ferry @CheyenneMinnie
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Q1. I have very little knowledge or awareness of the topic, however I believe people are entitled to work which ever way they please #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@sherlynmelody @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley I have similar thoughts- prostitutes, strippers, pornstars, etc. #otalk
Rebecca Twinley @RebeccaTwinley
@sherlynmelody @_rachelOT #Otalk should be a 'safe' zone to explore ideas together. #sexworkers can be discussed and identify in various ways - because #sexwork is so very varied
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley #OTalk Q1. Would probably describe current understanding as relatively basic. Definitely aware of it but not to any significant depth.
Sarah Reynolds @SReynoldsOT
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley #OTalk - I admit to limited knowledge: from broadsheet media and television in the main. Never knowingly had a conversation with sex workers in my role as occupational therapist.

@becoming_OT @OTalk_ @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Hi Laura! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@_rachelOT Actually I believe it. Sex is an occupation. You never know where your patients come from and why they need your services. #otalk
Rachael @RachaelD_OT
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Engaging in sexual activities for some form of personal gain (usually financial). Sex work is not just about participating in physical acts, but also exchanging of messages, pictures etc #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@sherlynmelody @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Although never had a conversation/intervention around this topic whilst I was in practice I suspect that was because would not have been easy for those I was working with to be open about as I think #sexwork is more nuanced and common than people are aware of. #OTalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@RebeccaTwinley @_rachelOT #otalk yes, I agree. I think it’s about educating people in the area.
kt marie @KtBergson
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Q1 - I don't think I've knowingly worked with any sex workers but I suppose its interesting to consider how we would know - how we ask sensitive questions/ provide a safe space that people can feel able to tell an OT that #otalk

Cheyenne Ferry @CheyenneMinnie
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley I do feel it’s often portrayed quite badly in the media and there are particular stereotypes surrounding the area. As OTs/OT students we should be looking at whether their occupation is contributing/improving to their health and well-being #OTalk
Adam DePrimo @adamdePrimo
@_rachelOT Yes! Well, sort of. I work in pediatrics so I do deal with puberty and social appropriateness. But the states tend to be pride on the topic of sex. If I were to discuss, I would use the ex-PLISSIT model #OTalk

Vicki Lynas @V_the_OT
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Sex is something I have spoken about with patients at work, albeit not often. It’s important imo to acknowledge and not be taboo about it. #otalk
Alannah Marie @Alannah_OT
@_rachelOT It absolutely should be since sex is a big part of people's lives in different capacities. I don't think it is talked about enough in our assessments both in physical and mental health areas of practice. #otalk
Rebecca Twinley @RebeccaTwinley
@musedNeuroOT @_rachelOT #sex is so #diverse so #sexwork is equally not something that can be described by one story... thanks for adding this #OTalk
UoS Occupational Therapy @TherapyUos
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley This is our first #otalk and a subject we view at @TherapyUos as a meaningful #ADL and a topic #OccupationalTherapy needs to take seriously
Rebecca Crouch, Occupational Therapist @RebeccaCrouch
Absolutely, even if it is out of our comfort zone. I can c this happening in 2scenarios. When working w some1: 1) who is a sex worker or has engaged in sex work, & this is part of their occupational identity 2) who may benefit from their services as a meaningful activity #OTalk
Keir Harding @Keirwales
@_rachelOT Everything someone does is within out remit. I'd notice my own...disapproval? Sense that this cant be a free and happy choice?...but try to understand why it was useful for the service user and what they wanted support with. #otalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@_rachelOT Definitely, being a bit vulnerable here... but as a disabled individual this is something I feel like I’ve had no input on #OTalk
Rebecca Twinley @RebeccaTwinley
Then we are so very pleased you joined us tonight #Otalk

Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@_rachelOT #OTalk Q2. I think it definitely is within the remit of an OT role both in clinical practice across any specialty and in my current role now in education.
Rachael @RachaelD_OT
@_rachelOT Definitely! As a profession, we explore all meaningful occupations & so by default, sex work would fall into our remit #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@_rachelOT Definitely, as much as any other career that might be impacted by illness/injury! Plus for some people with disabilities, access to sex workers might give them more opportunities for sex/relationships (e.g. @theandrewgurza's experiences: https://t.co/3MzmR5qqVj) #OTalk
kt marie @KtBergson
@BillWongOT @_rachelOT also it's part of the bigger question about whether OTs feel comfortable, confident and qualified to ask about sex as an activity full stop. Nevermind as a work occupation that is deemed illegal. #otalk

Gilly- does- Doing @GillyGorry

Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@GeorgiaVineOT @_rachelOT That's a shame. It definitely should not be a taboo topic #OTalk. Discussing sex did form part of my previous clinical role but not specifically sexwork.
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Of course it’s a meaningful activity if a person deems it to be so #OTalk
Keir Harding @Keirwales
@sherlynmelody @BillWongOT @_rachelOT Or a drug dealer that couldnt make his deliveries? 🤔 #otalk

Rachel OT 🌻 @_rachelOT
Q3. #otalk Are you aware of any non-mainstream or sex worker specific services in your community that you could signpost people to, if they wished to access them? Can you recommend a particular service?

💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@CheyenneMinnie @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley #otalk one thing that comes to my mind is people that participate in sex work to maintain or feed a drug habit. I’m not sure how common this is?
Kwaku Agyemang @KwakuOT
@_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley Sex As Work To Me Is Something Done To Serve A Purpose, Be It Financial Gain Or To Fulfil A Personal Purpose But I Also Understand That It Can Be Undertaken Without Choice #OTalk
Cheyenne Ferry @CheyenneMinnie
@_rachelOT Definitely, sex is an occupation and I do believe OTs should be conscious that I can be a priority occupation for clients , although I do feel it would be quite a tough issue to address, the more we do it the more comfortable we will get addressing sexual behaviours #OTalk

Sarah Reynolds @SReynoldsOT

Gilly- does- Doing @GillyGorry
@sherlynmelody @CheyenneMinnie @_rachelOT @RebeccaTwinley I'm sure this happens. And I think that I would question true consent here. There are probably other issues to be worked on. Sometime people don't feel they actually have the choices other assume they do. #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@_rachelOT I also have to consider sex work from a safeguarding perspective. Autistic children are very vulnerable to sex exploitation #otalk

Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot

@RebeccaTwinley @_rachelOT They should do - as a matter of respect to their sex partners, not wanting to contract or transit STIs & for treatment if needed (which should be stigma free). Whether they do or not is another question... #OTalk
