As some of you may or may not know, prostitution is legal in much of Australia. An interested article entitled: Ten Reasons for Not Legalizing Prostitution maintains that sex trafficking, enslavement of Asian ‘working girls’ and other unsavory things have resulted from the legalization of the world’s oldest profession, using the state of Victoria as an example. An interesting read for those who are interested. Just a note – at least in Sydney (although I am sure about else where), on street solicitation is ILLEGAL, although officers look the other way in King’s Cross. Only licensed brothels can provide such services, and many cater to foreigner’s tastes (i.e. country/ethnic specific workers).
