This research was conducted to know the sexual workers’ experiences during using condom to prevent transmitted sexual disease. Researcher want to know deeply about the description of obey to use condom, difficulties were faced by sexual workers, solutions to solve the obstacles and the feeling of sexual workers when they failed to use condom. The study design was a qualitative research with phenomenological approach. This research was done to three participants using in-depth interview technique. The result shows that most of sexual workers knew the reasons why they have to use condom. In addition, they found obstacles during using condom, especially when the consumer refused to use it. To overcome this problems, sexual workers had two ways, first they objected to service the client or kept continue to give services. It is hard for them since they need money for their life, and on the other hand, they got high risk to suffer transmitted sexual disease. Nurses’ roles are very important to help sexual workers solve their problem, for example: give health education not only for sexual workers but also for the consumers. Health education can be given directly or indirectly depending on the time and audience.
