RED Edition #14, 2008

Well, have we got a lot in store for you in this packed RED edition!

We have our regular articles such as Trade and Media talk, all very interesting. Under the umbrella of health and education we have an article debating the relevance of monthly STI testing for industry workers and if it is, from a public health and a personal worker perspective actually necessary. You can decide based on what you read. 

We have nutrition tips for healthy body healthy mind and an article relating to drug use, in this edition the use of methamphetamine and its effect on sexual desire. 

Additionally we have an informative article on Bondage and Discipline and the health and safety measures that should be incorporated if you are a B & D practitioner. In relation to workplace issues, we have included an article from Consumer Affairs Victoria (CAV), clarifying their role in the regulation of the brothel industry – detailing the powers they have when they visit your brothel. Another article of interest around Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) is around working alone and the considerations and strategies you need to put in place when working alone. 

We have included a fascinating contribution to the RED magazine called ‘The Migrant Myth’ which challenges some of the current debates played out in the media and beyond about migrant sex workers. 

Another exciting inclusion in this magazine is a contributor’s response to a previous reader contribution about running a brothel and what the original owner perceived was required. The current article challenges some of the stereotypes referred to in the original article, which was published in our previous edition. It is exciting for the RhED team to see and experience this kind of debate and be the medium through which it can be voiced. So, keep those contributions coming, they add true value to our publication.

Red Edition #18 2010

Welcome to another “crackerjack” edition of our magazine – RED#18.

An inaugural review of the RhED program was completed in august and will pave the way for the development of it’s five year strategic vision with clear priorities and objectives.

RhED is waiting to find out when the new sex work legislation will become active. This is expected to occur anytime between January and April 2011. All regulated brothels and escort agencies will be informed by regulatory bodies when the laws become active.

A major change is that exempt escort workers will be required to complete an annual statement. If exempt escort workers do not complete an annual statement, they can be fined up to 30 penalty points which totals $3,583.50 (each penalty point is $119.45). Read more about this in the Alerts section and if you have any questions, please telephone RhED on 1800 458 752.

Rates of gonorrhoea and syphilis have increased in the general community. You can inform your clients of this when they request a service without a condom. Remember you are the sex educators to the general community.
A new pilot project is being developed to provide clients with education about the difference between legal and illegal brothels. The aim of the project is to provide legal brothels with information they can provide to clients around safe sex practices and fines that can be imposed if clients are found on illegal premises. RhED will provide a report in RED#19.

Contributions are always needed and welcomed. In this edition we have a contribution from Anya which addresses the fine line of stalking and obsessive behaviours. From the conversations RhED has with workers, this does seem to be a common problem in the industry and it is hard to know how to manage it, especially when your stalker turns up in your everyday life. The article addresses the behaviours of stalking, obsessive love and provides helpful advice on what to do and how to do it.

Happy reading and remember your contributions and feedback are always highly valued by the RhED team.

Red Edition #19 2011

Welcome readers to our autumn edition of RED#19.

Following on from a review of the RhED program that was completed in August last year, we have now appointed a project worker, Suzi Hayes to assist us in progressing some of the recommendations of the review. In particular, Suzi wants to hear from people we have worked with in the industry – see page 10 for more information.

We are planning to ramp up our advocacy starting with a high profile one day conference: “Shining a RhED light”. This is going to be held on 25 May 2011 and we are encouraging all industry workers to attend this conference, which promises to be a major platform for promoting sex industry research.
Check out the new sex worker pack which is aimed at people entering the industry or those who are new to the industry.

The RhED website has been revised and now operates in-house which means more efficient updates.

There have been major changes in 2010 to the legislation and more will be coming in 2011. The name has changed to The Sex Work Act. All PCA numbers become SWA numbers. And, most importantly, all private escort workers must renew their registrations every year or incur fines. There is more information on these changes in the magazine. RhED ran a pilot project late 2010 for the primary purpose of educating the clients about the differences between legal and illegal premises and to support sex workers in educating their clients about safe sex.

Please take a few minutes to complete the Red Rendezvous questionnaire – this group is looking at ways of supporting you and acknowledging your valuable contributions.

Enjoy the read and we look forward to working with you during the year.

RED Edition #20 October 2011

Welcome to the 20th edition of the RED magazine – printed in full colour to celebrate the diversity of the sex industry. We have been fortunate to have Barbara Hauser’s artwork printed throughout.

Once again this issue covers a diverse range of articles which we hope you find interesting and informative. Many thanks to the contributors who continue to add valuable perspectives and experiences to our readers. We endeavour to keep our magazine thought provoking and engaging of our broad reader base. This issue spans the creative, artistic, OH&S, RhED updates & the latest trade scuttlebutt. In Trade Talk you will learn about the “new worker” kit for people entering the industry. 

There is also an article on gonorrhoea in the throat (which may go untreated if not detected). This has been translated into Thai, Chinese & Korean. There is further important information relating to WorkCover and OH&S laws. Reports on the Legal Brothel Signage project and the responses to the RED RENDEZ VOUS questionnaire will also make for interesting reading. 

In response to the many queries received about approved managers pay rates, we have also featured information sourced from the Fair Work Infoline, which we hope will clarify any misunderstandings.

Hope you all enjoy the read. RhED is here to support you in the industry and please remember your ideas and feedback are always welcome. Don’t forget to visit the website for regular industry updates.

RED Edition #21 May 2012

SandraI welcome all our readers to another full colour edition of RED. 

2012 promises to be an exciting and progressive time for the RhED program. 

We have moved into the year with a fully revitalised and replenished staff team, who, with their diverse range of skills and backgrounds will be a great asset to the work RhED does with the Victorian sex industry. Sadly, we farewelled Rhea Jacobs from the Pathways to Exit program and have since welcomed Rachel Shankland as her replacement. Newcomers to the RhED program are Sarah Rogan, Male and Trans* Portfolio and Stephanie Kiesel is the Young Women’s Support Worker. Read more about the RHED staff in their introductory profiles on pages 7&8. 

This edition provides an interesting balance of newsworthy, informative and entertaining articles that will hopefully grab your attention and enlighten your understanding of RhED and the sex industry. In summary, editorials include, a tribute to the loss of Jazzy O; our customary media blurb; acknowledgement of RhED’s involvement in community education campaigns; some guiding advice for brothel and escort management; feedback on the Scarlet Alliance National Forum; the development of a ‘Starting Out Kit’ for sex and/or gender diverse & trans community, a call for bi-lingual translators/interpreters, along with various other articles of interest.

As you can see from my picture, the only thing that has changed is that now I co ordinate this highly esteemed and valued program!

Stay safe and all the very best for a thriving 2012.  Oh, and don’t forget to check our website www.sexworker.org.au. You can always ring us on 1800 458 752 or email us at sexworker@sexworker.org.au.

RED Edition #22 September 2012

As Sandra Gibson is on leave, I’m the guest editor for the #22 edition of our fabulous RED magazine. So welcome to all our readers.

The past few months have been extremely busy and productive time for the RhED program. We have been busy reviewing our work and planning some fabulous new initiatives, so stay tuned.

Thanks to everyone for your contributions to this edition. There are some great articles that provide useful, thought provoking and interesting information about the sex industry and our work at RhED.  There’s a great article by Lizzie Smith, who describes some of the key findings from her research with sex workers on giving meaning to their sex work. This is really exciting research as it helps challenge negative views of sex workers and what one worker described as ‘internalised whore-phobia’.

RhED has a new flier reminding clients that it is illegal to remove a condom – you will see what it looks like on the inside front cover of this issue. The flier is providing very popular with the industry, which is great. If you want copies, contact RhED. 

We have developed a short list of 10 things you need to know about oral sex – which is provided in Thai, English, Korean and Chinese languages.  There is a great article about the new Fair Work Ombudsman education campaign on understanding of, and compliance with, workplace laws.  And we have also included some information about volunteering with RhED.

Finally, RhED has launched its very own ‘page’ on Facebook! Whilst we have been on Facebook for some time, we will now be posting from our page www.facebook.com/rhedsexworker. You don’t have be in the sex industry to like us, you can be a supporter of RhED’s work and keep up to date with the industry. For those who are concerned about privacy your name will not appear on the page unless you comment or like a post/status update. So head on over and ‘like’ us, c’mon – you know you want to!

We hope you enjoy this edition of the RED mag and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have a great idea about an article or topic for the next edition.

You can email us on sexworker@sexworker.org.au, call us on 1800 458 752 or find out more information about RhED via our website: www.sexworker.org.au.

Cheers,

Lee
