Laws by Australian State as at the end of 2019

- NSW: Sex work is decriminalised

Sex workers say Queensland is falling behind other states and territories as they pressure the Government to decriminalise the sex industry. We're still waiting for that here in Queensland," Janelle Fawkes, from statewide sex-work organisation Respect, said.
Ms Fawkes, who is also the campaign leader for DecrimQld, said sex workers were still waiting for the Attorney General, Yvette D'Ath, to deliver on her promise to refer the decriminalisation of sex work to the Queensland Law Reform Commission.
A day after the Northern Territory decriminalised sex work, Victoria has announced it will launch the first large scale review of the sex industry. The six-month enquiry will examine workplace safety, stigma and criminal activity within the industry. Victoria’s move towards further liberalisation follows the Northern Territory parliament passing legislation to decriminalise sex work.
The Northern Territory of Australia has decriminalised sex work. Parliament voted 16-5 to repeal the NT old laws. NT Attorney-General Natasha Fyles said the new act was about keeping workers safe. The Scarlet Alliance, the peak body representing Australian sex workers, said the vote meant that the NT had become just the third jurisdiction in the world to decriminalise sex work.
The bill to decriminalise sex work, and make women safer was defeated in the South Australian Parliament. The House of Assembly voted 24 to 19 to defeat the bill, in a conscience vote of all MPs. Georgia Thain from the Sex Industry Network said she was disappointed by the MPs who she claimed had turned their backs on making the lives of sex workers better.
It was not a plan of mone to start escorting, I sort of fell into it in my forties. I have now worked as an escort for ten years and I keep on learning. I discovered men are more complex and vulnerable than I had previously thought. I have greater respect for men since starting out as an escort. We are regular people doing an amazing job, and I have met amazing people in the industry. The struggle is how society labels us.
Sex work laws in Queensland are complex and problematic, as opposed to the laws in New South Wales, which are simple and effective. The laws in Queensland urgently require review. Sex workers consider the present laws prohibit safe working and moralistic standards on their advertising. They have to choose between working safely and legally. Police often use entrapment policies to get sex workers to offer blacklisted services. A change to the law was being proposed by the state that appeared to add to the prostitution laws, allowing police entry, search and covert filming in private premises. Thankfully on Monday, the state government pulled these proposals from the broader legislation.
Interesting article about the experiences of Australian sex workers. It throws a totally different point of view of sex work, which is not that shown in the media. One guy just started talking, and then he just broke down because the emotions came up," she said. "Men can talk to [sex workers] and they don't have to worry about feeling embarrassed; there's no judgement, they'll probably never see us again. But it gives them that release.
Despite sex work and the adult film industry is legal in Australia, sex workers are at risk of having their bank accounts closed at whim. This worker was open to the National Australia Bank when she opened her account three years ago. She told them she worked in the adult film industry. No problem they said and were happy to take on her account. Three years later they closed it, stating it was a high-risk account. Charlie Forde has had no chargebacks or fraud associated with her account.
Dr Hilary Caldwell, UNSW Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Social Research in Health, conducted the study as part of her PhD. She says the collective view on women buying sex can be put down to people holding stereotypical notions of passive female sexual desire and that women buying sexual services is not perceived as very common.
SA Police have a desire to remain in control of adult escorting in the state, they wish to retain powers of entry and search without search warrants. Ms Chapman said changes which had been passed to the decriminalisation law, that allowed police entry to brothels where they suspected a crime had been or was about to be committed struck the correct balance. The police commissioner, Mr Stevens considers the legislation does not meet the threshold we think that would be necessary for a safe environment. He believes there should be a regulatory environment across SA escorting, like for liquor licensing etc.
1st July 2019 Australian Escorts call on the industry to be decriminalised 30 years on from Fitzgerald Inquiry
Thirty years since the Fitzgerald Inquiry revealed police officers were corruptly paid to turn a blind eye to illegal gambling and prostitution operations, sex workers in Queensland say police powers are greater than ever before. Sex worker Candi Forrest, who worked both before and after the Fitzgerald Inquiry, said at least 80 per cent of the industry remained under police regulation, despite the inquiry recommending a more civil approach to sex work.

June 2019 No end to AIDS without respecting human rights
“Sex workers are 13 times more at risk of becoming HIV positive than the general population globally. But, in Australia, where sex work is decriminalised, we have the same rate of infection as the general population. This is evidence of the importance of the legal environment” says Jules Kim, head of the Scarlet Alliance, the Australian Sex Workers Association.
