Welcome to Ask Avery.

our-stories

We're here to support you.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

—Maya Angelou

We provide services to people who work in the sex trade. However you identify it: prostitution, hoein, dancing, sex work, escorting, camming, escorting, sugaring, the game, commercial sexual exploitation, you should have access to services that make your community safer.

 

We’re an organization run by individuals who have exited the sex trade and know that exiting is possible, but we’re not here to force you to make that decision. We understand how difficult exiting can be and that it’s not a choice everyone wants to or can make.

“In her heart she is a mourner for those who have not survived. In her soul she is a warrior for those who are now as she was then. In her life she is both celebrant and proof of women's capacity and will to survive, to become, to act, to change self and society. And each year she is stronger and there are more of her."

—Andrea Dworkin | feminist, writer, activist, survivor
