Kinkly explains Sliding Scale Fee

Sliding scale fees are often used within the sex industry. Prostitutes and sex-trade workers might change the prices of their services based on the type of client that they interact with and their financial situation. This can mean the worker will make more money with higher profile clients for the same services provided to those with a lower income.
