I've been putting my hair up and wearing minimal make-up. I've also told clients in advance that I'm not as glammed up as usual due to the heat, and no-one has had a problem with it. They've all agreed that it's far too hot.

Me too - if they are still available.
This heat is unbearable. I have zero energy. This could go on another 2 months.
I will never complain about snow ever again!!!

Hello!
I have noticed that clients are not staying as long as usual, I have done everything but the room gets just crazy hot  >:( hotel would be a good strategy, maybe worth including aircon info on the ad!

Don't bother with the Dyson fan - had a couple of clients who have them and they are just like a normal fan and cost plus £200!
It was reviewed on an ITV programme a while back and basically a cheap normal fan was just as good!
Stick your feet in cold water for  a while - cools down the whole body - minus the stockings of course!

Probably only another 2 months of the heat wave to go and then we can start talking about things to warm us up - apparently the Dyson fan is a heater too for the colder months................

Last year I bought the Dyson that does heating and cooling, the way it's worded makes you think it works like an air conditioner more than a fan which was exactly what I wanted. But it was average at best, didn't cool the room down at all so I returned it to Currys and had a huge argument with them about how they couldn't refund blah blah but for £400 I didn't leave until they did. Anyway back to sex work lol, I replaced it with a £20 fan that did a better job. I was using it for camming at the time and I still do, now I take my fan with me to hotels that have no air con.

In hotels I try to work out which rooms have the sun on them and which don't, that makes a big difference to how hot the room is as you can't always run the fan, especially at night it can be noisy. Also some hotels have air con that doesn't work all that well, I tend to check how good it is when I arrive and if it's crap ask them to change my room. If you stay in the same hotel quite often you tend to get familiar with them!

Working when it's hot is awful, sex is just about the last thing you want when it's like this. But I will suffer for the £££!

Yesterday where I'm based for in call was horrible. No fan :FF
Glad for the cooler weather / rain today.
Anyone else much prefer working when it's not scorching outside?
I think it's my OCD that kicks in, but getting ready for a client when it's humid and sticky indoors bugs me. And then the client sweating allover me on top of that  :-X

So glad it’s cooled down. I love the summer but this year is unbearable! One of my clients loves me in a basque and sheer stockings. Fine usually but these last few weeks I’ve been melting! And the pvc mistress boots I’ve put into temp storage! It’s been a relief to be totally naked with a regular recently!

I've really been struggling with the hot weather so not been working much.

Just wondered how everyone is coping.

I find it embarrassing when I'm dripping with sweat. I bought a fan but still struggling.

I don't think anyone feels sexy in a prolonged heatwave. I know some men get excited seeing young women wearing skimpy clothes as they're out and about, but when it comes down to it, do they really have the energy to shag? Especially now hotels are an issue and not all that many residential buildings have air con.

The only booking I've done recently, he asked if I'd wear tights... Get in the sea!

I am not working until September but will buy a cheap tower fan if need be as my room is south facing.  I mulled over purchasing the Dyson but read reviews so decided against it.

I have a tower fan which I bought 2 years ago in Wickes and it's basically my boyfriend now. (His name is... wait for it... Fanando!)

Just search Wickes for "tower fan". I have the black one. It's about 3ft high. It oscillates, has 3 power settings, and a timer, so you can set it when you go to bed and then it will go off by itself up to 2hrs later. It seems remarkably quiet to me but I do have some hearing loss. But never had a problem with clients hearing me or vice versa when it's on maximum.

During bookings I just point it at the bed. I couldn't work without it.

I have a Logik fan that cost £20 and it's great and very portable. I bought it after returning some Dyson thing that cost £400 and was rubbish. My logik fan is much better.

I'm lucky that my flat has aircon, but I'm only putting it on in the bedroom for bookings and to sleep because I'm too tight to run the electric up, which means that anybody opening the bedroom door after to go for a shower gets to feel like they've been smothered in an electric blanket as soon as they step into the hallway ;D.

I find that keeping the windows shut and the blinds at least halfway down helps as well as tying my hair up out of the way, but I wouldn't have been able to work this last week without the aircon either - it was 37 degrees here on Monday (32 today) and I'd have given it up as a bad job. I nearly passed out just staggering to the Tesco Express.

I'm lucky the properties I've tended to have are shady, very cool buildings, my location tends to experience lower temperatures than other parts of the country and less than cities. Only one a new build flat was ever a problem.

Really good in this weather, cooler inside than out which makes large heating problem in winter but great right now. Clients do comment how lovely and cool it is on arrival, and I am hit by the heat when I go outside. This can be an issue when I dress for inside before setting off out, realise I'm over dressed within a few meters outside the front door or when I get in a roasting vehicle.

I am really struggling as I sweat a lot!
I've been putting my wet wipes in the fridge for freshening up and also a towel in the freezer for putting round my shoulders when clients are in the shower. It helps a bit!

Swear to god the rash from them sweating up against you in doggy with their hairy legs. I’m red raw. I had to go buy a fan and sudocreme today and am currently sat in a starfish on the floor. I’ve got three days left of my tour then I’m sitting in a cold bath for days  ;D
