SPACES (Sex, Power, Agency, Consent, Environment & Safety) is proud to announce that we have had fantastic feedback from female providers. You are a very insightful and resourceful segment of the sex working population and we would like to thank you for and acknowledge your contributions to this research project.
As of February 1st 2014 SPACES will be transitioning to the final phase of data collection where we would like to hear from providers who identify as male. We are making this shift because we are examining how gender may relate to health and safety practices. Providers who identify as female may still contact us after February 1st. The voices of women providers will always be included and respected!
Just as before we would love to chat with buyers, managers and support staff (security, drivers and booking personnel) of all genders.
If you have already been interviewed and you know of anyone who fits these categories, please get in contact with us. You can accompany the interview and an honorarium will be provided to you and to the person who you refer.
If you are new to the study and curious about participating, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to answer any of your questions.
After this last stage of interviewing, we plan to reconnect with interested research participants and begin sharing preliminary findings to hear what you all think of what we found and to collectively decide upon next steps.
Interviews may last between 30 and 60 minutes. Audio files will be transcribed and then destroyed. A small stipend of $25 will be provided to participants.
Please keep your eye on our blog going forward and as always contact us with any questions, comments or concerns.
