Decriminalisation is the main demand of the sex worker rights movement worldwide. What is meant by this term is the full elimination of all laws that criminalise sex workers or hinder their work in any way.

We are not calling for a lawless condition, but rather reasonable measures for protection against work-related safety and health risks as in other types of work. We do not need special laws that discriminate against us as a criminal group of workers requiring surveillance and control.

Legal Recognition

In order for sex work to truly be considered a legitimate form of work, full decriminalisation is necessary. Decriminalisation should not, however, be accompanied by state regulation through controlling measures and obligations.


The whore stigma accompanies us everyday, whether we do sex work or whether we wish to change occupations. Therefore we demand that the choice of occupation be included as an additional point in anti-discrimination laws. As long as social stigma persists, our privacy and anonymity must be given high priority.

In cases of conflicts arising between sex workers and other workers or residents, we call for a limitation on sex work-related activities only in the same way that other types of work would be limited in conflictual situations.
