Entrapment by police Entrapment is legal in Queensland - this means that police can and do pose as clients and as sex workers in order to trap sex workers and clients into acting illegally. The legal term for entrapment in Queensland is deceptive practice. If you are approached by someone who says they are a police officer you should request to see their identification - if they refuse then you should assume the person is not a police officer.

Criminal Laws Relating to Condom Use in Queensland It is a criminal offence to provide any kind of commercial sex without condom use.

The fact that a place is being used for the purposes of sex work "may be inferred from evidence of the condition of the place, material found at the place and other relevant factors and circumstances. Respect Incorporated, your Queensland sex worker organisation. Escort Work April Crime and Misconduct Commission Reports Inquiry into escort work, October Sex worker input into this report is high, and recommendations about sex worker safety and privacy are positive.

Evaluation of the sex industry laws, December Unfortunately the sex worker input into the original CMC report was not high, and a pathologisation of sex workers, a fetishised view of entry into the sex industry takes up much of the report, and a focus on retraining makes the report uncritical and not relevant to workplace conditions as a result of the laws.

The answer to this question is no. The PLA is very conscious of the disadvantages to which licensed brothels are presently subjected and which heavily impact on their present ability to capture a market which is largely serviced by the illegal prostitution industry. Prostitution and the Law in Queensland by the Prostitution Licensing Authority with specific reference to the licensing of brothels. Prostitution Act Link to an online copy of the Act.

Appalling, I am so angry. Cheryl Matthews from the group, Self-health for Queensland Workers in the Sex Industry, believes a Crime and Misconduct Commission inquiry into escort services in the State is a waste of taxpayers' money. The CMC's final report handed down today calls for outcall services to remain illegal in Queensland despite calls from licensees and the Prostitution Licensing Authority to allow legal escorts.

The prostitution report that was released a couple of years ago showed that the industry as operating in Queensland is actually operating quite well at the moment. There is virtually no organised crime of any nature within the industry. We took the precautionary approach that unless we could be satisfied that legalising outcall prostitution would not lead to an increase in organised crime or to other problems within the industry, it was just too great a risk to make that recommendation.

But the commission has recommended several changes, including a crack down on illegal escort prostitution services, including the creation of new criminal offences and restrictions on advertising. Years ago they used to advertise as massage parlours. Now they advertise as social escorts. We know if we cut down purely on advertising of social escorts they'll start adopting some other terminology and advertise that way.

So we'd made recommendations that we hope will prevent the use of some other form of pseudonym advertising, whatever form is adopted, and enable the police to prosecute those illegal operators who are using that masquerading as a legal industry.

It was our view at the time when the Beattie Government introduced legalised brothels that the basis for introducing that was that it would put an end to the illegal industry. It was our view at the time that that was overly optimistic and so it's proven to be. We fundamentally agree with the approach that's been taken in this report, that we make it more difficult for the illegal industry rather than allowing the legal industry to expand.

But Cheryl Matthews says the report has missed the point and offers no protection to workers at the coalface. There's nothing there that is going to stop the violence that's committed against sex workers. There is nothing there that is going to stop illegal prostitution.
