Your Safety

Some cruising grounds are safer than others and you should look out for warnings posted on sites such as Squirt. Avoid cruising if you’re drunk or have used drugs – you’ll be less likely to make safe decisions. Keep valuables like mobile phones out of sight or leave them at home. Get to know the layout of the cruising ground, such as exits or dead-ends. You are safer in areas where others are cruising, so avoid becoming isolated. If you feel unsafe or someone is behaving oddly, move away or leave the area. If you are attacked, get help by attracting the attention of others. Try to get away or shout for help. Be clear about what sex you’re comfortable doing and stay within your boundaries. You have the right to say ‘no’ to sex or ‘no’ during sexual activity. Others also have the right to say ‘no’ to you.
