Sex Work in Victoria: Brothels vs Illegal Massage Parlours

Southern Comfort International - Tuesday, September 18, 2018

Massage parlours flout legal restrictions adhered to by licenced brothels

According to Rohan Smith in (Massage parlours flout legal restrictions adhered to by licenced brothels) complaints continue to roll in about Victoria’s massage parlours offering sexual services and licensed brothels have had enough.

Milan Stamenkovic, the licensee at a brothel in the Melbourne CBD said illegal massage parlours work with minimal overhead costs in an unregulated and unsafe industry. He said they pay staff below award wages and let clients do things they cannot do inside a legal brothel, including engaging in unprotected sex. This means clients think they can get away with more when they enter a licensed brothel. And that’s the hardest part of a sex worker’s job.

The fight against illegal brothels is continuing. A mix of local council and police patrols have been somewhat successful, but Mr Stamenkovic says it’s “a nightmare to obtain a prosecution against an illegal brothel”.

Police tried in Coburg, north of Melbourne, earlier this year after suspected illegal activity at Sabai Massage. Police alleged it was operating as a brothel and had it declared an illegal brothel on May 4, according to the Herald Sun.

A few months later, the allegation was overturned and the massage parlour was allowed to continue trading.

Melbourne Massage Parlours Sprung as Illegal Brothels

Southern Comfort International - Monday, August 20, 2018

Nine News reported on August 20, 2018 that a woman is in police custody after two apparent massage parlours she was operating in the Bayside areas of Melbourne were revealed to be brothels (Melbourne massage parlours sprung as illegal brothels).

The article stated that Detectives investigating Bayside Relaxation Massage in St Kilda and Park Street Massage in South Melbourne uncovered the illegal operation which involved numerous women working illegally on student visas.

The article also states that Police seized evidence and believe the business may be linked to human trafficking. "Women are promised visas and better lives in Australia, but are forced to sell their bodies to pay for it once they arrive."

“It’s modern day slavery.”


So, if you visit illegal massage parlours, in effect you are supporting this human trafficking and modern day sex slavery.

At our legal brothel not only are you safer using legal sex services, but you can be assured that our ladies are not being exploited.

And, what might happen if you do visit one of these illegal massage parlours and there is a Police operation at that time? You can be charged! Try explaining that one.

So, if you happen to see a massage parlour nearby & are tempted, we say don't risk it. Come and visit our legal brothel in Melbourne's south eastern suburbs!

Why do men visit ‘happy endings’ massage parlours?

Southern Comfort International - Monday, July 23, 2018

Dr Nikki Goldstein reported in that 80 per cent of happy endings massage parlour day clients were either in a relationship or married. (

The massage parlour owner Ronnie says "I get a lot of men here when their wives are pregnant".

“Some just want more”, Ronny continues. “They are not getting enough in general. If you have a couple that is doing a lot of sex, they might both show up here.  

“I have had this happen a few times. He’s not going to make out that he’s been coming here but he’s going to put it in her head, let’s do something different, let’s go to a massage parlour. I’ve had to play the game where a client has called me saying I’m coming in with her but pretend you have never met me. They come here to have a woman involved, to have a threesome.”

Is there a question pertaining to relationship advice? — happy wife, happy life.

Dr. Goldstein goes on to say ... I also briefly managed to speak to one or two clients. One was married with children and had a job on the side to fund his sexual habits without anyone finding out. Another single man did not hold back telling me he thought some men were there because their wives were not as attractive anymore and not giving them enough sex at home.

At Southern Comfort International, we think we provide a service to meet a very wide range of situations.

So, ... what do you think?

Army captain calls for prostitutes to be sent to front line to relieve soldiers' stress

Southern Comfort International - Wednesday, April 18, 2018

According to Yahoo7 News on December 4th, 2017 ... an Australian Army captain has reportedly suggested prostitutes should be sent to the front line to help relieve combat soldiers of stress (

The Daily Telegraph reported Captain Sally Williamson wrote “improved intimacy and sexual interaction can help combat veterans with PTSD recovery” in a blog article.

The article dubbed “Sex And War – A Conversation Army Had To Have”, was reportedly posted earlier this month on the Army’s official Land Power Forum blog but removed several days later.

Capt Williamson wrote that it would be practical for soldiers to “have sexual relations in a safe, secure and controlled environment”, The Daily Telegraph said. “The Army could contract Australian male and female sex workers to service troops in forward operating bases and air bases,” she wrote.

Police raid illegal massage parlours

Southern Comfort International - Wednesday, October 25, 2017

Kristian Silva reported on 13 October 2017 in the ABC News that QLD Police swooped on Gold Coast massage parlours suspected of offering sex.

Police have raided seven massage parlours on the Gold Coast that were allegedly operating as fronts for illegal prostitution.

Investigators are looking through items seized at the sites, and could lay criminal charges in the coming weeks.

Dozens of women working at the parlours were also questioned by Australian Border Force (ABF) officials checking for visa breaches.

At a Nerang shopping strip where police raided two massage parlours, neighbouring traders said they had made repeated complaints about the businesses.

"Customers are here all hours. They're here before they open. It's unbelievable," one trader said.

The raids come amid calls from the legal brothel industry for more to be done to clamp down on rogue operators, who do not need to pay for government brothel licences and offer cheap sex to customers.

In its 2016-17 annual report, Queensland's Prostitution Licensing Authority said legal brothels were making more complaints about the scale of illegal prostitution, which was costing them business.

"Illegal operations are by their nature unregulated and unscrutinised and there is a heightened risk of the danger of exploitation of workers, violence, and pressure to have unsafe sex," the report said.

At SCI, we say ... why risk unsafe sex or possible criminal charges & fines ... visit our licensed Melbourne brothel today!

Southern Comfort International - Monday, September 18, 2017

The Herald Sun today reported that ...

"CHILDREN using the pedestrian crossing outside their outer suburban Melbourne primary school end up at the front door of an illegal brothel. If they then turn to their right, they walk past a second illegal brothel just 60 metres further up the shopping strip."

"And there are seven more dodgy sex dens within a kilometre of a suburban 24-hour police station."

"The two sex dens opposite the primary school are among more than 250 alleged illegal brothels reported to Victoria Police by the legal brothel industry in the past five years, including the recent reporting of 21 of them in the City of Knox."

KEITH MOOR, Herald Sun September 17, 2017

The Australian Adult Entertainment Industry — which represents legal brothels — yesterday claimed only a few of the illegal brothels of which police have been made aware have been shut down.

Safety for Sex Workers

In the article, Rachel Reilly, acting executive director of not-for-profit Project Respect, which supports women in the sex industry, applauded Kingston Council for taking action against illegal brothels.

Ms Reilly believed Kingston was in the minority of councils who took a hands-on approach making sure unlicensed brothels were shut down.

But she said urged Kingston to ensure the health and safety of women was a priority.

“(We’re asking for authorities to) make sure anyone in that space is linked in and provided access to relevant services they may require coming out of that space and to not criminalise the women as well; we have seen that in the past,” Ms Reilly said.

And for clients ...

Did you know, that according to the article, "Anyone found in, or entering or leaving the premises ("an illegal brothel") is liable to a $6,000 fine ($12,000 fine for the owner) or imprisonment for 12 months.

Illegal brothels masquerading as massage shops, karaoke bars and beauty salons

Southern Comfort International - Sunday, January 22, 2017

Alesha Capone reported in the Leader on January 22, 2017 that ... HUNDREDS of illegal brothels, many of which offer unsafe sexual practices and put women’s safety at risk, are operating across Melbourne.

And police admit the sheer size of the industry makes it difficult to investigate.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Sara-Jane Delaney said the majority of illegal brothels operated under the guise of massage shops, with others in homes, beauty salons and karaoke bars in suburbs including Ascot Vale, Brunswick, Campbellfield, Craigieburn, Dallas, Essendon, Epping, Flemington, Footscray, Glenroy, Mill Park, Moonee Ponds, Oak Park, Pascoe Vale, Preston, Reservoir, Sunbury, Sunshine, St Albans and Tullamarine.

Most worryingly, the police unit has also received reports of underage workers, people trafficking and illegal brothels offering sex without condoms.

To report an unlicensed brothel or criminal activity in the sex work industry, contact Crime Stoppers ( on 1800 333 000.


There’re some simple signs to look out for in order to tell the difference between professional massage businesses and illegal brothels, according to Massage Association of Australia secretary Pauline Kelly.

  • Opening and closing times are an indicator, as professional therapists do not usually offer very late appointments
  • Massage shops offering sexual services often operate from “dodgy” business fronts that close and reopen
  • Illegal brothels also have blacked-out windows and are open late into the night, advertising offers like “hot new Asian babes”
  • While some advertisements state “no sex”, they often include statements like: “new young sexy hot girls”, “sensual massage”, “all Asian young girls” and “sexy body and oil slide”
  • Most ads do not quote a SWA number on their advertisements, which is required of all legal brothels under the Sex Work Act

Please note that Southern Comfort International is a licensed Melbourne Brothal (SWA4015B) & don't forget, if you patronise an illegal brothel, you could be liable for a fine of up to $6,000! Don't risk it!
