Yeah Australia has legal prostitution but only in a licensed brothel. The brothels aren't allowed to advertise either. Street walkers are illegal. To be honest I've never seen a street walking hooker, don't know of anyone here who has either.

I saw the article and it struck me funny somehow.  I just never thought of prostitution being legal in the land of OZ.  After thinking about it though, it makes perfect sense.  If Australia is anything it's HONEST  :w00t: :tu:

Yeah it's not really spoken about or in the mainstream. I didn't even know it was legal until i was about 18 :tu:.

It's better than them walking dangerous streets for work IMO.

And they get dogs chasing them :w00t: , Postmen in Australia don't walk the streets they ride motorbikes, maybe they could do with their own 'brothel' to keep them safe off the streets lol.

It may be disgusting, but it shouldn't be illegal.

If its a crime, then who is the victim?

The entire human race is its victim. It turns people into commodities which is not the same at all as hiring a laborer. In time everyone will finally figure this out and accept it as truth, the same as most have that slavery is wrong even if a person sold themselves into slavery.
