A Papatoetoe sex worker says forcing her off the street and out of business would mean she could not feed her children.The debate continues over the reform of prostitution law.
"I have tried other jobs but this is the lifestyle I have chosen," said the 30-year-old who did not want to be identified. "This is how I buy nappies. If I am off the street, I cannot feed my children."
Other South Auckland prostitutes who spoke to the Weekend Herald confirmed that disagreements flared up among those who earned their living selling sex.
There was a rule among sex workers that if someone did not have children to support, they did not belong on the street, they said.
