I’ve been working in Newton Abbot and Plymouth and phones gone mad. I feel like the tide is turning and people are so fed up they are coming out to play. I’ve seen a distinct upturn in business since the schools went back.

Yes I too have had a good week this week, well as compared to the last few weeks, bookings every day and even had to turn a few down. Certainly not as busy as pre pandemic but a good upturn.
Fingers crossed we may be turning a corner.

I've not long started seeing regular clients again and only do one a week if that as I'm being cautious. So why is always always my least favourites that want a long booking. I've just been asked to do an overnight with a chap I've been seeing a few years - in normal times we do 1 hr maybe 2. I did 5 hours with him end of last lockdown and it was such a strain! I was watching the clock every five minutes!

I don't think I can possibly get through an overnight but I really really really need the money,!!
The overnight might be easier, if, it involves a lot of sleeping  :)

And not watching the clock, the time will pass.

If daunted it will seem like a long time.

When is it actually legal to work with covid restrictions? I had a look and the beauty people are able to in a few weeks. Can we legally then?

I was wondering this, and I thought maybe when personal care such as masseuses are allowed to practice on the 12th of April maybe? It would be nice to know when exactly though.

People from two different households are not allowed to legally meet indoors until May 17th.
The beauty business is a little different to our line of work as they should have the protective screens up and wear the appropriate masks/visors and keep to as much social distancing as is possible in the situation so not close contact as such like we are.

Unless it's for work reasons. You're meeting someone in your office/workspace for work, not to have a cup of tea and chat about the weather or how auntie Gertrude is doing.

Gray area I say.

I was thinking more massage therapist as they are close contact than something like nails. I suppose you can't wear a mask.dking oral but I've booked in my Botox on lips and you can't wear one for that  etc.

IMO physical bookings will be legal again from May 17th, when two households can mix indoors. Masseurs, hairdressers, nail technicians can all mask up and we're not shagging/kissing them...

Re. vaccines, I don't really see it as a marketing point, nor would I believe punters who used their vaccination status as a bargaining chip to obtain a booking. Moreover, by the autumn it will hopefully make little difference as enough people will have been immunised for the country as a whole to achieve at least some level of herd immunity, so the odd individual who hasn't been vaccinated shouldn't be a, or at, risk.

Off topic posts moved from the vaccine thread - if we have to have two, please keep the general stuff in this one :)

I'm not sure that the authorities, should they come knocking at your door mid service, would regard inviting a random guy into your home/apartment or whatever to offer paid sex services as legitimate work.
They would see two persons from different households mixing indoors, which until the 17th May is illegal.

Cleaners can go into houses. I know it's different but sex work is work

Same for me, not worked since 20 th March 2020.
My boss hasn't called me in the the massage parlour since then.
I mainly do outcalls to hotels, think after 17th May you can visit hotels but not sure.
21st June all restrictions might be lifted and all back to normal, we hope.
