Demand. Demand. Demand. One of the results of a legalized sex industry is the increase in demand... if you are a registered and legal brothel you can advertise and spread the word - you can bring in other women from other states to help satisfy men who want to buy sex... all of this sounds quite legit - except when you know about the real demographics of prostituted persons... most women involved in prostitution come from a marginalized, abusive and traumatic past... so to offer them an 'opportunity' to sell their bodies (at tremendous risk and personal damage) is merely to offer state-run exploitation.

PERTH brothels are increasing staff to contend with the arrival of two US warships carrying more than 5400 sailors.
Business groups estimate the sailors' arrival will boost the local economy to the tune of $5 million during the ships' five-day stay. The owner of Perth brothel Langtrees, Beverly Clarke, said she had put on five extra staff for the weekend, including two from the eastern states.
While there had already been a marginal increase in business, she expected numbers to increase markedly by Friday night.
``Two more (US) sailors just walked in,'' she said while being interviewed on Friday afternoon.
``At the moment I've even got girls from the eastern states here to assist us.''
