What is sex work?

The SW Act defines sex work as the provision by one person to or for another person (whether or not of a different sex) of sexual services in return for payment or reward. Sexual services include:

taking part with another person in an act of sexual penetration including oral, anal and/or vaginal sex;

masturbating someone, whether or not the genital part of his or her body is clothed or the masturbation results in orgasm;

allowing someone to view or participate in acts of sexual penetration, masturbation or any form of physical contact that is sexual.
