Move To Criminalise Oral Sex: Sex Workers Targeted

The Police Minister Judy Spence is increasing police powers to entrap and deceive sex workers into offering oral sex without a condom. Currently police act as clients, calling and visiting sex workers to pressure them into agreeing to offer sex without a condom, and then pressing criminal charges against them for it. However in one case the sex worker pleaded not guilty – and got off. The court ruled that they had only offered the service, not actually done it, therefore the crime was not committed. In a bizarre twist Police Minister Judy Spence is now tabling legislation to criminalise even the discussion of oral sex without a condom – but only for sex workers. Sex workers, experts and community representatives oppose the move.
