In a Nutshell – Sex Work and the Law

In Queensland, Australia, private independent sex workers may operate as a sole trader and practice lawful sexual activity from their place of residence or a motel, as long as they adhere to the Prostitution Act 1999,  Criminal Code [Chapter 22A Prostitution][1] and Prostitution Licencing Authority (PLA) regulations which state that:

  • The sex worker must work alone (two sex workers must not share a premises even if they work separate shifts)
  • The sex worker is allowed to employ a qualified bodyguard/driver
  • The bodyguard/driver is allowed to be on the premises but must remain hidden and not answer the phone or the door, unless bodyguard services are required.
  • The sex workers partner or husband/wife is allowed on the premises as long as they are not profiting from the sex workers lawful sexual activity (pimping) and must be able to show separate income and household contributions
  • No one is receiving ‘kickbacks’ from a sex worker in order to sex work ie; hotel/motel owner operators.
  • The sex worker does not publicly solicit sex services
  • The sex worker does not provide sex services without a condom (Natural)
  • The sex worker must not use the word Massage in advertising
  • The sex worker must not publish an advertisement:
    –  that describes the services offered;
    –  which might induce a person to seek employment as a sex worker;
    –  that states directly or indirectly, that the person’s business provides or is connected with massage services; or
    –  use radio, television, film or video recording.

In addition, an advertisement (including a website on the Internet) that is published must be in the approved form. The Act provides guidance about what constitutes an approved form.

I am very pleased to announce that this website has been approved by the Prostitution Licensing Authority (PLA).  I wrote an email asking for guidance, particularly due to the content of my blog and some of the bondage images.  After a few tweaks, I was approved.

Thank you
