This industry is not for everybody
We would love to tell Ladies looking for work in this industry, just how it is – “the good, the bad and the ugly” – but that might be construed as coersion or soliciting and that’s against the law here in Victoria (Victorian in more ways than one).
So, please check out the rest of our website and feel free to call for a chat. We would be happy to organize a look-around at a time that suits. Then, if after careful consideration, you decide this is an industry you might enjoy, it’s been your decision entirely.
Impartial and balanced advise can be sought from the Rhed organization – a sex worker support group offering health and education resources in the Victorian Sex Industry. They are a great bunch to talk to and can be contacted on (03) 9525 4492
New Sex Workers - Questions Answered
How old do I have to be?
To work in the Sex Industry in Australia you need to be over 18 years old.
Can I work legally in the sex industry in Australia?
Each state of Australia treats the question differently. Working in the Sex Industry here in Victoria is definitely legal. Owners of Victorian Brothels & Escort Agencies must hold a license issued by the government.
Do I have to be Australian?
No, there is work in our industry for Men & Women from all over the world. If you are from overseas you will need a Visa which allows you to work here.
Must I surrender my passport to a brothel owner?
Definitely not! If you are from overseas and have the correct Visa for working in Australia, you must keep your passport safe. You must also be free to come & go from any Brothel whenever you like. The money you earn for your work must be paid to you before each job. The Brothel owner or Manager must not keep your money (unless you ask them to).
Do I get to choose my clients?
You are free to choose which Customers you will see or will not see. A license for a Brothel owner to operate his or her business does not imply a license to control what Working Girls do or don’t do.
What is the relationship between me & the brothel owner?
Ladies who offer their services in licensed Victorian Brothels are, in a sense, self employed. The Brothel owner is in the business of renting rooms to Clients and the Working Girls are selling their own personal services to those Clients.
At the Presidential Suite, we have always regarded the relationship between us and our service providers as similar to a partnership. Working together with mutual respect, co-operation & trust is a good foundation for a viable business relationship & a win-win situation.
