Fear definitely sells more newspapers. It's ridiculous. Although I have been a little anxious about working in London because of it, but I'm also angry at myself for worrying about it... :FF

Yes it has affected the work, I notice it calmer than usual
and from the clients that come I see that they are more careful not to make contact with body fluids,
I  not do FK and the OWO I do it very discreetly with very few clients, but I have noticed a low work ....

 On TV and everywhere there is much talk about the virus crown and men are being very cautious and afraid, I had already talked about this with several WG friends and we have all complained about the same ...
Imagine with immense joy that you are living the life of your dreams, do it every day without exception, because this is a way to add energy to the purpose.

Not worked because of half term. Boss of parlour rang me yesterday and told me not to come in this week as hardly any clients. Only work 3 days a week and suggest next week I only do 2 days.
She think it because of virus and guys are not booking.

We had the first UK case here in Brighton with our 'super spreader', who is now recovered and back at home. His local is 10 minutes from me and although he was drinking there inbetween his Singapore and French Alp trip, taking yoga classes and attending running groups, no one
in this area has yet become ill.

I think the media are doing more damage to businesses and our paranoia than the virus itself.

Agreed. The media are making it a nightmare for us.

Work is always slow coming up to February pay day. This virus like any other Flu is passed via the usually means. Looking at stats unless you are old or have a compromised immune system you should be fine. When you think about it we may come into close contact with people but if we are working and holed up in our 'caves' we will actually come across less people than your average 9 to 5 worker. If you are concerned just make every guy shower or shower them yourself. I have seen a lot of posts on Twitter from SW's about this and we are just losing business for ourselves.

Things should pick up this week like it always does after February pay day and if you are originally from one of the countries where there as been a big outbreak maybe try telling the guys that you have not been in that country for a long time x

Update from Spain:
Authorities found that a woman working at the "La Selva Negra" brothel had tested positive for coronavirus. The findings forced authorities to quarantine the premises and the 86 customers that were inside.

It was a hoax.

It was a hoax.

Do you have a source regarding the hoax?
I got this quote from Zero Hedge, which usually is reliable.

Edit: On a second read, it does sound like 'The Onion' though...  ::)

Edit (2): It was a hoax. Zero Hedge threw in 'The Onion' style article. Sorry, ladies and thanks for correcting, Moonlight.

I am currently on a two week tour and I’m getting mortgage money and car finance for three months and putting it away in case this gets worse before it gets better. If we have to isolate or if our schools close for 3 months some of us won’t be able to work. So even though everyone thinks it’s being exaggerated surely it’s better to prepare now so we aren’t all bankrupt by the end of it. I hate financial worries. We have enough warning now to get saving.

Anybody who has decided to be self employed should have made provision for what they would live on if some event or circumstances meant they couldn't work or earn money for any length of time, or at least given it some serious thought. We could all fall ill, have some sort or accident or household disaster, be called upon to support somebody close to us or unexpectedly lose our place of work, and that was no different a month, a year or ten years ago.

Great to be prepared. Good stuff!

Do you have a plan what happens to Saafe in case you and Ian die in the epidemic?

The thing with the flu virus is that it mutates every year or so, and that's why flu vaccines don;t work that well. Last years virus flu is different from this years virus. The danger of the corona virus (and that's why people are so scared) is that it mutates every week, hence the reason it's being so difficult to find a vaccine or quick cure to it. Or so I've been told by a doctor who is doing his phd in the subject. SARS and bird flu virus didn't mutate so it was easier to find a cure it seems.

The thing to remember is if your young and healthy you will ride the storm. But if you have elderly parents and grandparents you regularly see or use for childcare they will not. So it’s worth perhaps baring this in mind when working in areas with lots of people infected. 
I do believe it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better. And I think the punters aren’t going to risk seeing us as they will think we are high risk.

I've got some funds set aside for a rainy day anyway, and I'm not working a huge amount at the moment either.
I do have interest but my focus and interest isn't there as much. It's just as well really.

I mean I am really trying to take the hysteria with a pinch of salt though, mind saying that there is something to consider when thinking about the dangers and the concerns.

And it doesn't help when you have clients who drip their runny noses over you. That happened to me last week, that's pretty gross.
