Sex Work Jobs Melbourne

In regards to sex work positions, at Garden of Eden, we are often asked why we don’t post ads for sex workers. In Victoria it is illegal to advertise for sex work positions, which means we have to rely on word-of-mouth and our reputation as one of Melbourne’s leading luxury brothels. We would love to advertise openly for sex work positions however it is against the rules established by the BLA. Brothels must not induce someone to work as a sex work service provider.

Sex worker earning potential

Brothel work Melbourne: Potential EarningsA classy, large and legal parlour with a lot of doors (aka clients) gives sex workers the opportunity to earn $600 – $1200 per day depending on shift hours. Some ladies prefer to do 2-3 shifts per week and can take home between $1800 – $3600 per week, whereas some service providers prefer to work all week and can make over $5000.

Ladies sometimes work on a Friday or Saturday night for a full shift in Melbourne’s legal brothels to supplement their existing income. It is not unusual for law clerks, nurses, teachers or admin assistants to work in a legal, local parlour once a week or fortnight and they can take home $1000+ for a single shift.
