We are social workers with a feminist, intersectional and accepting view of sex work.


We offer free and anonymous services to active and former sex workers in Tyrol/ Austria on the following topics:



* Health care, sexually transmitted diseases and safer sex..


* Social support and assistance with insurance, taxes, debt, sexuality, violence..


* Legal counselling, labour law, residence law, fines..

We offer personal counselling on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings at our office in Innsbruck (Schöpfstraße 19). But please e-mail or call us (or whatsapp) ahead of time:


Phone: +43 (0)660 4757345



Besides support of sex workers and their relatives we also organise events, hold talks at various universities and colleges and also work towards a destigmatisation and decriminalisation of sex work.


We are connected to self-organisations in Austria and beyond.


Our political position is: full decriminalisation of sex work. Sexwork is work.
