Are prostitutes vaccinated? Should they give this information to their potential clients? A website that lists independent escorts has made this choice to reassure its clients. The National Coordination for the Defence of Sex Workers fears the implementation of a new discriminatory measure. 

Bemygirl, hosts about forty independent escorts who offer their services between Geneva and Zurich. Since a few days, under half of the profiles, appears a new blue pictogram which mentions: COVID certificate controlled by Bemygirl. To justify their approach, the site's managers explain: "We have received a certain number of requests from members of the platform who wish to know if certain independent girls are vaccinated. On the other hand, the escorts have started to publish in their texts and in their statutes an indication of their vaccination. Each escort is free to mention this distinction or not. 

Among those who have this famous blue logo on their profile, Elise. The young woman, who has received her two doses of vaccine, accepted Bemygirl's proposal without hesitation, she says: "it allows me to reassure my clients and it also shows them that I am paying attention to them", explains the young woman.

For the National Coordination for the Defence of Sex Workers, there are fears about the long-term effects of compulsory vaccination on the most vulnerable groups in the profession. The socialist deputy Sylvain Thévoz, close to the defenders of sex workers, denounces a marketing approach that is just as dangerous. 

According to call to play, a dating and prevention website created by sex workers' rights defenders, no specialised internet platform has yet made the COVID certificate compulsory for its members.
