Introducing our Programs

The skills to pay the bills.

Everything you should have learned at school and more. Our economic empowerment program is designed to provide foundational in-depth training specifically for sex workers and troubleshooting through our unique challenges. This program helps you navigate a hostile and confusing financial framework and improves your financial wellbeing by putting you on the path for financial freedom.

Ask Us Anything

Questions submitted will be answered every Tuesday

Do you have a sex work related question?

Our Ask Us Anything feature offers any sex worker the opportunity to pose an anonymous question about anything to do with the industry. With our collective 50+ years industry experience, there’s hardly a question we can’t answer.

Skillsharing workshops on community-led topics to top-up the trickbag.

Dealing out tricks of the trade.

Workshops run once a month in-person or online, with a different “Bigger Sister” host for each session. We want to convert all workshops into digital resources to be readily accessible and available in our online library. Be sure to check out our upcoming workshops and futureproofed workshops.

Community Podcast

Sex work can be a tangled web of responsibility and risk, challenges and complexities. These turbulent conditions, unique to our industry, can make it difficult to know where to start.

Together with our guests we dive in and attempt to unravel the bureaucratic beast, offering a practical approach and direct action. Sometimes this is with industry experts, sometimes this is with other professionals from different fields. 

Our conversations aim to self-empower workers, nurture financial wellness and fill knowledge gaps. We’re all about capacity building: giving you the understanding, skills and means to break the cycle of dependence and instability.

We cover the big issues: intergenerational poverty, scarcity mindset, unstable income, financial exclusion, how to work safer, and more.

Our guests are all heart and nails, helping us ride tough subjects with grace and laughter, and leave us knowing a little more than yesterday.

Want to get involved? Collaborate with us – we would love to hear from you.
