Prostitution would work under a job economy like Uber if it is being decriminalized in South Australia, advocates of sex workers have claimed.

The bill of private members to formally decriminalize sex work in the state is dealt with in parliament after it passed the Senate in June.

However, it can take a while to pass through the Lower House.

Fears have arisen that & # 39; super brothels & # 39; would pop up if the law change continues.

Greens told MLC Tammy Franks however The Australian that was unlikely because technology had changed the industry.

& # 39; The critics continue to talk about brothels that are popping up everywhere, but we are looking here at a model that is more related to the disruptive economy, where these women can do their business legally and no one gets any wiser. & # 39;

The sex industry in South Australia has around 2,500 employees, of which about two-thirds of the employees operate independently in small groups.

Anya, a sex worker in SA, said that most women used social media to make appointments with clients and usually met in apartments or hotels.

She said that large brothels were a thing of the past.

She told the industry to keep the publication on the wrong side of the law. Many sex workers were too scared to report crimes because they did not want to be attacked by the police.

Ms. Franks argued that sex work would become less of a vulnerable industry if employees were treated less like criminals.

Last month, sex worker Michaela Dunn, 24, was reportedly stabbed to death in an apartment in Sydney by a client.

Both Ms. Franks and Anya said a similar incident could have happened in South Australia, but thought police involvement would be less likely.

A Greens MP and senior liberals have gathered support for the bill, but Labor leader Peter Malinauskas strongly opposes it.

There were changes to the bill this week that prevent brothels from being opened within 200 meters of a church, school or daycare center.
