Mission

Sin City Alternative Professionals' Association (SCAPA) acts to create a warm and caring environment in which those who choose to perform erotic work may advance their skills, knowledge, and safety in a healthy way, while encouraging a sense of pride in their work.

SCAPA is also the Las Vegas chapter of SWOP-USA, which focuses on improving the lives of sex industry workers by promoting safety, dignity and diversity in sex work and fosters an environment that affirms individual choices, occupational rights, and self-esteem.

What We Believe

SCAPA believes that all people who choose to work in adult and alternative professions deserve dignity and civil, human, and labor rights like any other employees or workers. SCAPA encourages professionalism, safety, risk avoidance, and safer sex practices, as well as pride in work and an honest work ethic. We believe all rights carry with them responsibilities, and that workers should be responsible, honest workers.

We also realize that this form of work is not for everyone, and encourage those who believe it is unproductive in their lives to exit safely. (Please see Support for resources on doing so.)

What We Do

We are dedicated to providing local alternative professionals with resources they will find useful, a community of like-minded individuals with whom to collaborate, and workshops to impart useful skills and knowledge.

SCAPA is an organization dedicated to serving the greater Las Vegas area alternative professionals population. Our site is intended to be a valuable resource for both women and men who provide adult services, including exotic dancers, massage and body workers, escorts, phone sex operators, and Southern Nevada brothel workers.

We offer a political voice to the significant- yet often side-lined and marginalized- community of sex workers in Las Vegas and surrounding areas. The social stigma that tends to accompany this kind of work means that all too often our voices are silenced. We aim to remedy that by uniting to bring our voices to the table in order to help shape policies that affect us all.

We also offer resources that sex workers will find valuable, such as links* to sex worker-friendly lawyers, accountants, and financial advisers. We provide links to counselors, life coaches, and people who provide childcare to busy single parents. SCAPA is also ready to offer alternative professionals a healthcare plan and/or a group insurance plan. 

We offer workshops on financial planning, investing, lobbying, buying a home, confidence-building, as well as legal, skills-building/sharing, personal healthcare, and marketing workshops. 

Being an erotic service provider can be lonely, alienating work. We have monthly get-togethers, at which you can meet your fellow workers and forge community and friendship.

Check our calendar often for updates on these and other events. And feel free to contact us and have your own event added to our calendar!
