Illegal apartment prostitution can get you in trouble with the authorities

Since police has started to raid these types of apartments, many women have been fined and even banned from the country. When caught, the ladies face huge fines and lose access to their apartment. The landlords who own the apartment also receive a fine and might even have their apartment closed or taken away from them.

As a result of this, illegal prostitution can be very dangerous and the women can lose their hard earned money and source of income in an instant. Clients also face fines if they are caught when the police raid the apartment.

Working illegally can be very dangerous

In addition to having to fear the authorities, women who work illegally cannot feel safe with their clients either. Any of them could potentially be there to harm them, they could steal anything from the apartment or they could in fact be undercover cops.

Having access to the protective measures that are offered by legally operated brothels is very important in keeping the ladies safe. Brothels in Vienna usually have cameras installed, trained security on site and they have someone they can ask for help when needed. Women who work through legal means also receive health and financial benefits.

Illegally working women do not get regular health checks

Another problem that arises with illegal apartment prostitution is the fact that the sex workers do not have to visit the doctor for their regular health check. Because of this, sexually transmitted diseases could be passed along, as well as anything else that’s infectious. This can be dangerous for everyone that’s involved and could lead to health, as well as social issues.

Women who work legally are required to get checked by a doctor and they are tested for STDs regularly. This is important for the sex workers, as well as the clients who visit them and makes legal prostitution a much safer option.
