Sex is selling very well in Perth. And with the decade-long mining boom, miners and contractors coming over from other states are the people who flock to the brothels as they pass through Perth. When people think about Perth, they used to imagine long sandy beaches with amazing sunshines. Nowadays it has become richer with giant skyscrapers, cocktail bars and high-class restaurants. And the other thing that’s been keeping Perth busy has been the sexual services industry.
Most of the men who go to the brothels are either single men who don’t want a real relationship or have little hope of having a real relationship; and married men who have been far away from their wives and families who just want some sort of intimacy. These men come from a line of work that earns them a hefty income, so going to a brothel and spending at least $400 an hour with an escort doesn’t really leave a dent in their bank accounts.
So where there’s business opportunities, escorts and sex workers alike, go to Perth for more business and clientele. Some Asian sex workers live in brothels for long periods of time, renting a bed and a locker for a small fee at the brothel of their choice or a brothel that offers accommodation for sex workers where they can work and live for a period of time. So it’s a win-win situation for both establishment and individual.
Running a brothel comes with its own set of rules and responsibilities to be successful. Having “fly in – fly out” workers has it’s positives and negatives such as keeping your good reputation and trusting the worker to be able to uphold it. Of course, sex workers who start off working at the brothel will be trained and taught to be respectful of the brand name of the brothel but independent workers who come over for a short period of time should also abide by the brothel’s rules and uphold the brand name. Sometimes when a certain worker is more popular than the others, jealousy comes in play with the others so either healthy competition arises or negativity such as spreading rumours among clients occur. At times like these, management needs to step in to take certain measures and take care of the matter without it getting out of hand.
So at the end of the day, running a brothel is no different from running any other business. Especially in a place like Perth where a lot of business transactions are happening due to the mining industry and a high demand for brothels and escorts is wanted.
