> Saw a part of a story on CNN last night talking about a brothel in Australia. > Are they legal there? Anyone "down under" reading this news group like to > reply? Just spent 6 months there writing a travel book... brothels are legal in Victoria and ACT. There's one described as "Australia's most politically correct brothel" in Canberra -- they had the Grand Press Opening a few months back. And a place in Melbourne called "The Daily Planet" has just gone for a stock exchange listing. Other places have "tolerated areas". Hay Street in Kalgoorlie is the most famous. Perth has more brothels than Hamburg. But from what I saw, you wouldn't REALLY want to bother, in general, unless you were a sex-starved bushie paying your first visit to town for 6 months. Prices? Around AU$130 an hour. Now you know. =========================================================================== Date: Sat, 10 Feb 1996 22:44:41 UTC Perth age of consent is 16 (prostitutes need to be 18+) .... Hourly rate for escort services (i.e. girl delivered to door or home/hotel/motel) is around A$150 - A$200 hr. The driver (I used to be one) usually waits outside and monitors the situation (for the safety of the girls) .. we all have tell-tale signs and signals. Condoms is compulsory. Most girls will do couples while some specialise in female-female intimacy. The lower class girls are usually found in brothels. Prostitution in not legal in Perth nor is it illegal. The police have a 'blind-eye' policy. Health checks are not compulsory nor do many of the girls undergo health checks .. no matter what they may tell you. As with any city/country .. a large number of them carry the hepatitus virus (whatever strain) .. and a couple have been known to carry the HIV virus. Madams to do not care about the health situation of the girls as long as they are bringing the money in. Prices above are for regular sex (which mean the man gets to ejaculate once in the time period) ... other forms of sexual activity can be negotiated with the girl on site. i.e. French, Greek, wet sex ... etc... Greek (anal sex) with prostitutes is illegal however, some girls will perform for the right price (usually $200 on top of the going rate). =========================================================================== Date: Fri, 17 Jan 1997 02:27:25 +0800 Subject: Sex Industry Representatives in WA on the Web Hi I'm the webmaster for the web site set up to promote the local sex industry.

The local estcourt agencies (there were two of them) were bringing girls up from Perth on a rotating two week roster. If you don't know Port Hedland is a mining town and there are about four men to every women. You have some good and some bad. If you find someone nice she will probaby only be there for a couple of weeks. $200 an hour, girls 6-9.
