Virus forces offline sex workers to start again online That's left sex worker collectives and advocacy groups calling for members of the public to donate to emergency funds. Some sex workers have been forced to continue working, risking hefty fines or exposure to the virus. So this affects the whole extended family," Prof Sanders says.
Niki Adams from the English Collective of Prostitutes echoes that view.
She told the BBC most sex workers in the UK are mothers and if they are continuing to work, it is because they are desperate for money. But some sex workers find themselves unable to keep working - even if they would choose to.

In Daulatdia brothel in Bangladesh, police guard the entrance, preventing customers from entering. The brothel has been closed since March, leaving many of the women struggling to buy essential items and leicesfer on donations from charities.
Nazma supports three children who live with her sister back in her village. She came to the brothel 30 years ago when she was just seven. Although she needs money, she worries about the dangers of working during the pandemic. We'd be scared to go to bed with our clients anyway, as we don't know who is affected," she says.
Daulatdia sits on the banks of the Padma River, near a major ferry terminal. It is the main transport hub that connects the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka with the country's southern districts. Many of the women and children who live in the brothel are victims of trafficking.
While the Bangladeshi government and local aid organisations have delivered some emergency funds to the women, Srabanti says it hasn't been enough and some women received nothing at all. In early May, Srabanti organised a private aid delivery, distributing packets of basic supplies for each of the 1, women registered at the brothel.

I think you have to be cut out to prstitute a prostitute. For a start, you have to be a damn good actress, and you have to be able to cut off and be able to do the job, otherwise you should not really be in the business.
Lots of money I got into the business proetitute a boyfriend. He didn't force me, I just liked the lifestyle. I liked the money and we did, for a few years, have a good lifestyle out of the money.
I went in completely of my own accord. I learnt a lot from him actually. I started in London on the streets of Mayfair which at the time was very busy, and then progressed into the prostktute and saunas in London.

I did private flats, escort work and all sorts of things and I earned quite a lot of money. I've been abroad all over the place and have had nice clothes and cars and everything, so I don't regret my life in the profession. I do regret not saving some of the money [laughs] but we can all have regrets can't we? But as for being in the industry, no I don't regret it.
It's impossible to say how many men I've slept with. I don't even look at it like I've slept with them.

It's just a business to me. I never ask them their names, I'm not interested, so long as they pay me and are respectful to me, then I'm respectful to them. There have been times where I know I am with a famous person or an MP or something, but you know, you just have to use your discretion. I would never kiss and tell, unless someone paid me a whole load of money [laughs] but I don't think anyone would so I'm not bothering.
I suppose it's a bit like a gynaecologist who'll go through a whole day examining ladies, and then he'll go home and do something completely different but in the same sort of area. I've always had a boyfriend and I've found that I can pgostitute off and enjoy sex with my boyfriend which is completely different.
