Definition - What does Private Viewing (PV) mean?

Private Viewing is a term typically used within the sex industry. It’s most often used to describe services delivered by escorts or strippers which do not involve sexual intercourse. As the name suggests, a private viewing is conducted in a private place, like a private room in a brothel or a strip club.

Private Viewing is often shortened to the acronym PV.

Kinkly explains Private Viewing (PV)

The specific meaning of private viewing may differ from sex worker to sex worker. Many sex workers who offer this service will deliver a sensual massage and a hand job. Others will perform a lap dance and strip tease, but will not service the client sexually. Typically, if the sex worker will not give hand jobs, the client can bring himself to orgasm through masturbation, although this is not always the case.

While definitions of private viewing vary, sexual intercourse is never a part of a private viewing service. Given the various definitions of private viewing, a client should confirm what the private viewing will entail to avoid disappointment.
