The Moorabbin Leader reported on June 12th 2019 that there are ‘vile’ online forums naming and rating sex workers and reveals that illegal prostitution is thriving in Melbourne’s suburbs.
This is despite recent police and council crackdowns on illegal brothels masquerading as massage parlours.
A one of the forums posts says sex workers are illegally working from apartments after raids at their ‘salons’.
Also, it is reported that unscrupulous unlicensed brothels plied ‘sex slave’ migrant workers & students with drugs and forced them to have unprotected sex.
Victoria Police spokesperson said the Sex Industry Coordination Unit worked with police, councils and other law enforcement agencies to tackle illegal brothel operators.
BEWARE:- if you are found in an illegal brothel during a raid, you may be charged with an offence that is likely to be difficult to explain to others. Don’t risk it. Come and visit our licensed local brothel where everyone’s safety and well being is a priority.
