Do you want a job with good job satisfaction? Just head on down to your local brothel.

Brothel-based sex workers 'enjoy their jobs'
Thursday Mar 1 14:02 AEDT
Legal prostitutes are just as happy as women with regular day jobs, according to a survey reporting high job satisfaction in parts of the sex industry.

But illegal workers who sell sex on the streets had a much grimmer outlook, with half saying they had been raped or bashed in the past year.

The unique survey compared the mental and physical health of nearly 250 Queensland prostitutes, aged 18 to 57, who worked in registered brothels, at home or street side.

Legal workers reported similar job satisfaction to women in the general community, but street workers were far less happy in the job.


"The general picture is that those women whose families know about their work reported greater job satisfaction than those who kept their work secret," said researcher Charlotte Seib.

Asked why they entered the industry, 82 per cent said they did it for the money and 52 per cent pointed to the flexible working hours.

"And 39 per cent said they had a particular goal in mind such as a new car, a house or a holiday," said Ms Seib, from Queensland University of Technology.

One in four of the women surveyed had a Bachelor degree or higher, which is contrary to the popular stereotype that sex workers came from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

More than 60 per cent were employed before joining the industry.

Legal workers were mentally on par with other women but street workers were far less psychologically stable.

Ms Seib said the reasons for this were complex but probably stemmed from higher rates of child abuse, illicit drug use and violence on the job.

About half said they had been raped or bashed by a client in the past year compared with 12 per cent of private workers and just three per cent of brothel workers.

This proved that legalisation of the industry had been effective for those working within legal boundaries but street workers were still at risk, Ms Seib said.

A lot of the arguments against de-criminalizing prostitution are actually very weak. One of the main ones is how dangerous it is to women. That's bogus because prostitution is only dangerous because it is illegal. Legal brothels are some of the cleanest, most efficiently run facilities in the country. I saw a Showtime special about the legalization of prostitution. It highlighted one of the legal brothels here in Nevada. Every girl is tested weekly, condoms are abundant everywhere, the facilities are very well secured (partly because they are so far out of town), a sound payment system is in place so the girls know they get paid, and most importantly, because it is legal, if a guy gets out of line the police can be called to resolve the situation. An illegal prostitute does not have these options, which is why illegal prostitution is dangerous.

I think a lot of women who engage in legal prostitution enjoy the power they have over men along with the earning potential. I'm all in favor of decriminalizing it - as long as there are women willing to provide the service and men willing to pay for it, let the market be free. Or as George Carlin said: "Why is it illegal to pay something you're allowed to get for free?"

Unless you are abusing yourself with your right hand, you are paying for it in one way or another. Or in the case of Charlie Sheen, he does not pay to have sex with women, he pays them to leave afterwards...

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

Some of these girls earn so much money, if you do a a search on the net you will find Escorts that Charge around £200 per hour.

Now the sums - If they work 2 hours per day that is £400 per day, over a year (Based on 260 working days) that is around £104,000 per year tax free!!!

Time to get the misses another job I think  Wink

Legalized brothels have to be one of the most honest work environments. At least they know they are going to get f'ed at work, unlike the rest of us who get f'ed at work but everybody pretends otherwise.

I've heard that some women who work regular jobs will drop in to work at Nevada brothels for a few weeks a year. They can make in the range of $25K over that short timeframe. I suppose they may walk funny for a while, but for $25K its probably worth it.
