This paper charts major changes in the locational distribution of female prostitution in the Perth metropolitan area during the twentieth century, and aims to explain why these changes took place.
The study confirmed that there is a positive relationship between changes to law enforcement policy and changes to the spatial distribution of the sex industry. Factors that affect law enforcement policy and thus the location of prostitution include the social stigma associated with prostitution, economic forces that compete for urban space and political pressures to contain and occasionally relocate the trade. At the same time, and perth a of major spatial redistributions caused by changes to law escorts in richmond london policy in Perth, the central city prostitute has remained the sex industry's geographical focus throughout the twentieth century.
