Mobile sex workers

Mobile sex workers

Some sex workers have clients in different towns and cities and move around the country providing sexual services. This page from the Personal column of the Otago Daily Times in 1991 advertises Gina's presence in Timaru on Tuesday and Kate's availability in Alexandra, Roxburgh, Lawrence and Milton on Wednesday. These advertisements present sex work as a personal service offered by experienced professionals for established clients, who are invited to call to arrange their appointments.
