Anna Wim

Dreaming of Accessibility in Sexual Healthcare

Anna Wim is a queer non-binary sex educator, writer, and visual artist. In their work, they focus on destigmatization of sex toys, queerness, and access to sexual healthcare, both in written form as well as through their still life photography. They are behind Berlin’s only sexual healthcare database fluide.

This workshop will focus on why inaccessibility of sexual healthcare, for both sex workers and civilians, can be extremely dangerous to sex workers and is in essence whorephobic, racist, ableist, and classist.

Movie Info:

Title: s_x work and relationship

Project: short film/documentary by and with sex workers ONLY- from 3 countries working in different areas of the industry

Due to our profession, the stigma attached to it and internalised prejudices, us sex workers are often confronted with toxic relationship dynamics and find ourselves in situations where we have to educate our partners, friends and other loved ones. And of course only if we decide to be open about our profession. We are the experts in questions concerning our work. Unfortunately, this is still rarely acknowledged. These audiovisual testimonials highlight our issues within relationships and are thus an important strategy and tool for social and cultural intervention. Furthermore, they provide us with the opportunity to make ourselves heard and to speak as individuals about the experiences of a larger group and to express community concerns. This project aims to raise awareness, educate and promote social change. Nothing about us without us! film length: 28 min spoken in english and german with subtitles (there is an english and a german version)

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4j4BB_xGoeQ there was a crowdfunding campaign - there you can find all further information about the project https://www.startnext.com/kurzfilm-sexarbeit-und-beziehung

The Language of Sexwork

How we can reshape perspectives on sex work by shifting the way we talk, write and engage about sex work and the workers during everyday conversations? Some of our language may seem harmless but is damaging in ways which shape perception and shift laws making Sex Worker lives more difficult. Examples of this are when we write sex worker but fail to capitalize the leading letters. And questions we ask such as "are sex workers saving their money for the future?" It’s equally important for us to recognize how we take on much of the language that oppresses us and for the population which claims to support us to understand how they can better stand up for us in small yet impactful ways.

SWAG

Self defense for SW

SWAG (Sex Work Autodefensia Group) is a method, a thinking tool and a solidarity network. Rooted in feminist self-defense practice, SWAG developps since 2015 a self-defense and empowerment method to collectively enhance our defensive and strategic skills, many of which already belong in our community.

Worshops are self-care and SW-only spaces. Building on SWs skills, they emphasise on sharing physical and verbal self-defense technics, but also building self-confidence, or theoretical knowledge vulnerable points.

For further informations on our programs, contact us at contact.the.swag@gmail.com

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

After a rapid exercise on emergency exits, we will discuss preventive and verbal strategies to use before and during sexwork. Then we will move on to physical defence and practice a few technics to use during sexwork inside and outside. Then we finally conclude by a session of full-strength hit practice on the instructor using combat training equipment.
