Here are some links regarding prostitution in Australia:

Here are some key points to consider:

  • The ACT sex work laws are quite liberal, with most aspects of the work legal once registered with the Department of Fair Trading. Workers can operate from their own homes once registered, though they must be working alone
  • The laws are quite similar in Victoria and Queensland, where sex workers, brothels and escort agencies must register or be licenced by the state government and there are restrictions on the way sex work is conducted. Street work is illegal.
  • NSW is the only state to have completely decriminalised sex work, and licensing and registering is not required.
  • In WA, SA, Tasmania and the NT, most aspects of sex work are criminalised.
  • Under Northern Territory laws, brothels and street work are illegal, though there is some flexibility with private workers who work by themselves, and with escort agencies, if they are licenced.
  • The laws in WA and Tasmania are similar, but do not require licencing.
  • South Australia's laws a perhaps the strictest, where brothels and in some cases private work is illegal. It is also illegal to be on the premises of a brothel without a reasonable explanation, to earn a living from prostitution, and to procure a prostitute.

  • Adverts arrive at the top of the queue, however due to the high volume of advertisements moving through the Swagmates marketplace, these soon move off the top of the screen.
  • To allow advertisers to secure more views on their advertisement, we have created the option available to ‘bump’ your advertisement.
  • This (immediately) pushes the advertisement to the top of ‘the days advertisements.
  • To increase the views on your advertisement, we would encourage you to occasionally ‘bump’ your advertisement to the top again.
  • Yes. If you are working for an agency, we would just ask you to select the ‘Agency’ option when creating an advertisement.
  • Please not that each advertisement is for an individual offering services. Advertisements for multiple individuals are not permitted.
  • Each individual advertisement needs to represent an individual worker. IE: If an Agency has 5 girls working, then they are required to advertise these girls individually, rather than all 5 girls in one advertisement. This is essential for Swagmates advertisement filtering, and will ensure customers are able to locate the services they require.
  • Agency workers will be asked to provide some information in regards to their place of work. This allows Swagmates to tag the advertisement, and display the business name on the individual advertisement.
