Sex Industry Lingo – Do You Speak Sex Worker?

Jargon is part of any space; however the sex industry is famous for its sex service terminology.

We often reduce frequently used, short phrases or word sets, usually to their initial letters (these are also called ‘initialisms’ or ‘abbreviations’) to make things easier to remember or say. In the sex industry, its basically the same except we also use it for discretionary reasons. The sex industry is such a diverse market with a multitude of services regularly available and the abbreviations are an easy way to state a specific service.

If you are new to the industry, either as an adult service provider or client, these abbreviations can be a little confusing. So’s that you’re not feeling red faced when a asked by a potential client if you provide ‘XYZ’ or if you can’t find the words to describe exactly what you’re looking for to an escort, this article is for you.

This list is of some of the most common ‘lingo’ in the adult service community.
