FAQ

    General

    Who runs Tryst?

    A sex work and technologist run social enterprise called Assembly Four created and run Tryst. You can find out a little bit about the three founders Eliza, Jack and Lola by clicking the links :) You may know of them from their first project, Switter. You can have a direct chat with them over on Switter or Twitter also.


    Are the providers on Tryst verified?

    All providers on Tryst are verified. Verification on Tryst simply means that through a combination of photo verification, P411 and social media we have reason to believe that the person advertised in the photo is real, matches the photos and an independent provider. Of course, like any site offering verified profiles, there is no way for this to be 100% however it does drastically reduce the liklihood of the person being fake. Client side due diligence is always encouraged :)


    How does Tryst give back to the community?

    We have two direct ways in which we intend on giving back to the community.

    The Tryst Hardship Program - We have seen over the past 6 months how times can get tough. To combat this we have implemented a 2 month grace period for workers who can't make their end of month payments, to help anyone who needs it get back on their feet.

    Clients Give Back Program - A huge part of our work which is often forgotten are the wonderful clients who are wanting to help this community stay online. All proceeds from upgraded client accounts will be directly donated to sex worker organizations or to the Tryst Hardship Program

    I don't want my profile on Tryst anymore. Is there a way to delete it?

    If you'd like your profile to be deleted, please shoot us an email or contact us via the contact form and we will have this removed.


    I message you on Twitter or Switter and no one has replied!

    We are only a small team of 3 at the moment with Lola as our main support person. She checks the Tryst emails daily (excluding weekends) and we reply to all emails sent through - this takes priority. We do answer our Twitter/Switter DM's but this may take more time and often we aren't notified if these haven't landed in our main inbox. If you want a speedy reply emailing hello@tryst.link is the way to go :D


    How do I increase my exposure on Tryst?

    Tryst works a little differently to most other ad platforms in that you don't have to fight for the top spot on one page. If you'd like to know how to increase your exposure please check out a few of our blog articles where we talk about all things Tryst: https://tryst.link/blog/
