Not all of our international affiliate sex worker organizations have websites. Click here to go to the contact information page for other sex worker organizations and allies.

Here you will find a link to some of the most interesting web sites on the planet! Many sex workers around the world are not only computer literate, but know their way around the internet and have designed some fascinating web pages. There are literally hundreds of locations worldwide to get information about sex work- we offer the best links to the most sex worker positive sites (Please note: this is NOT a referral service for professional relationships- something that we cannot and will not do- you will have to look elsewhere for that information).

The sites linked on this page were created by sex workers, students, academics, allies and supporters. We are also including links to websites of those individuals and groups who are militantly opposed to all forms of pornography and prostitution and are opposed to decriminalization of any form of consenting commercial sex, because we believe that the only way a truly valid discussion on these issues can take place is to have access to all points of view. We can almost 100% guarantee that you will not find links to us on THEIR sites! They do not want to include us in any discussions on this issue because intelligent, articulate sex workers scare the b.s. out of them! And there are plenty of intelligent, articulate sex workers around who are willing to discuss and debate the issues with them, whenever and wherever the anti's choose. (Let this serve as an open invitation to debate the issues with any of the anti-porn/ anti- prostitution activists out there!)

This information site is designed to help you better understand what the issues are, and to get to know what sex work is and who sex workers are (if you are not one) or, if you are a sex worker, we want you to know that you are not alone. If you know of any other sites relevant to sex work that we missed and want to share them with us, please e-mail us at: iswface@iswface.org
