New Deviations manager Nola Konig has dealt with all the common myths during her 13 years in the sex industry. Now sitting behind the desk, the passionate advocate for the sector takes The Chronicle through what it's really like to work in a licensed brothel.
Sex workers are often called home-wreckers, with the long-held belief that married men go to brothels to cheat on their wives. While Ms Konig didn't deny that it occurred, she said the main demographic was young, single men. Contrary to popular belief, the world of licensed brothels does not revolve around administering sexual favours.
Ms Konig said the aim of the business was to service the needs of whatever the client wanted, which included massage, conversation and anything in between. People thinking that sex is all we do couldn't be further from the truth. Deviations also catered for people with disabilities and developmental issues, provided they were of sound mind to give consent. It's often written into people's care plans," Ms Konig said.
Western cinema and pop culture at large will often portray sex workers as being beholden to a boss or employer under shady circumstances. As a result, safety and health standards are required by law, which included full STI checks for both clients and service-providers. Another effect of the girls acting as sub-contractors means everyone who is there works because they want to.
Ms Konig said the myth that workers were forced into the industry was one of her biggest bugbears. Ms Konig said the brothel received criticism in the ensuing backlash, which she believed was completely unfair.
