Prostitution was legalised in New Zealand in 2003
The primary legislation relating to this was the Prostitution Reform Act 2003
The purpose of this Act is to decriminalise prostitution (while not endorsing or morally sanctioning prostitution or its use) and to create a framework that—
(a) safeguards the human rights of sex workers and protects them from exploitation:
(b) promotes the welfare and occupational health and safety of sex workers:
(c) is conducive to public health:
(d) prohibits the use in prostitution of persons under 18 years of age:
(e) implements certain other related reforms.
Safe Sex is Paramount.
Aside from the health risks, it is ILLEGAL to have unprotected sex (including Oral) with a sex worker in New Zealand. The penalty upon conviction is a fine of up to $2,000.
It is rare that you will find a New Zealand sex worker willing to provide unprotected sex as the health risks are simply too high.
Absolutely none of the sex workers associated with Purple Orchid will provide unprotected sexual services.
If you are in doubt, we suggest you ask if they are willing to provide unprotected sexual services. If they say “yes” – RUN LIKE HELL!!!!!
If you are seeking unprotected sex then please do not call any of the team at Purple Orchid as you WILL be refused.
Section 9. Sex workers and clients must adopt safer sex practices
(1) A person must not provide or receive commercial sexual services unless he or she has taken all reasonable steps to ensure a prophylactic sheath or other appropriate barrier is used if those services involve vaginal, anal, or oral penetration or another activity with a similar or greater risk of acquiring or transmitting sexually transmissible infections.
(2) A person must not, for the purpose of providing or receiving commercial sexual services, state or imply that a medical examination of that person means that he or she is not infected, or likely to be infected, with a sexually transmissible infection.
(3) A person who provides or receives commercial sexual services must take all other reasonable steps to minimise the risk of acquiring or transmitting sexually transmissible infections.
(4) Every person who contravenes subsection (1), subsection (2), or subsection (3) commits an offence and is liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $2,000.
A sex worker can refuse to provide or to stop providing the service at any point.
The sex worker cannot be compelled to continue under any circumstances. Again, refusal or discontinuation is rare and generally due to mistreatment or disrespect. The key is to be respectful and to enjoy yourself. The more the sex worker enjoys your company the better the service will be.
Remember, you are not paying for the lady, you are purchasing her time and services.
Section 17 Refusal to provide commercial sexual services
(1) Despite anything in a contract for the provision of commercial sexual services, a person may, at any time, refuse to provide, or to continue to provide, a commercial sexual service to any other person.
(2) The fact that a person has entered into a contract to provide commercial sexual services does not of itself constitute consent for the purposes of the criminal law if he or she does not consent, or withdraws his or her consent, to providing a commercial sexual service.
(3) However, nothing in this section affects a right (if any) to rescind or cancel, or to recover damages for, a contract for the provision of commercial sexual services that is not performed.
Only New Zealand “Residents” are legally able to provide commercial sexual services in New Zealand.
If you are in doubt as to the residential status of the sex worker, please ask for ID.
You don’t want to be subjected to the embarrassment of being present during an Immigration Department investigation or raid.
This section is designed to control the potential risks in relation to human trafficking.
All of the sex workers associated with Purple Orchid are legally entitled to work as sex workers in New Zealand.
