As Australia’s most populous city, it’s no wonder that Sydney’s sex industry is thriving.
Sydney was one of the first cities to benefit from the legalisation of the sex trade and it boasts an overwhelming number of bordellos, escort agencies and adult entertainment venues — many of them featured here on Red Light Sydney.
There’s one staple of the sex industry we haven’t covered: street prostitution. Many punters remain content riding their luck on street hookers and whores, as we’ll see in this guide…
A Guide to Street Prostitution in Sydney
The wealth and diversity of the licensed sex trade has seen street prostitution falling in popularity but, though illegal, it can still be found going on in numerous parts of the city.
Known affectionately as Sin City, there has been a red-light district in Sydney since the city was established in 1788.
Though transient in location, whorehouses and street workers have serviced the population in a variety of ways over the years, but they found a more permanent home in the Kings Cross area at the turn of the twentieth century.
With the large residential houses proving too costly to run, these were transformed into boarding and lodging houses. Along with a seedy criminal underworld working the area with illegally traded goods such as alcohol, Kings Cross quickly established itself as a red-light district.
From the 1960s onwards, the Cross (as it is affectionately known) was popular with locals and visiting tourists including American soldiers on R&R from Vietnam.
The area attracted the investment of legally operated establishments catering for the clientele that frequented the Cross; strips clubs, bars and nightclubs all profiting from the trade.
Today, Kings Cross is attracting new and trendy businesses including cafes, independent shops and galleries. However, the area is still home to many street prostitutes and hookers who continue to make a living from the reputation of the Cross. In deference to the age-old affinity to Kings Cross, local law enforcement operates a ‘tolerance-zone’ which falls inside the square formed by William, Bourke, Victoria and Burton Street.
After nightfall, the number of working street hookers inside this zone is usually between 50 and 100.
You can also find street prostitutes working the CBD in Sydney after hours and it is well worth a wonder around the city to see a different side of the business zone.
Punters can also try the streets around Hyde Park including Liverpool Street, if they are willing to stray from the contained areas.
If you are interested in gay male prostitutes or shemales then you can find street hookers to suit your tastes in Fitzroy Gardens in the Kings Cross area and Green Park, Darlinghurst (known as ‘the Wall’). Due to the proximity to the gay central area of Oxford Street, you can mostly find male prostitutes operating from park benches in these locations.
A 30 minute drive to the West of the city you can find the suburbs of Yagoona and Bankstown, each of which has a street sex trade which may be worth investigating. Try Hume Highway in Yagona and the junction of Fairford and Canterbury Road in Bankstown.
The rates charged on the street are much lower than in a bordello or massage parlour and you can get a blowjob for as little as $20 and sex for $50; however, each girl is different and you will have to negotiate a price.
It goes without saying, there is a big caveat to using street hookers and whores: it’s considerably more dangerous both in terms of legal and STD/STI risks.
