THE New Zealand government, having taken the step of legalising prostitution, has now issued a guide for sex workers.This safety and health guide follows the earlier government guide concerning how to open a brothel.
The 100-page Occupational Safety and Health guide to safe sex practices has been launched on a government website with the caution: "Warning: this document contains sexually explicit material".
The recommendations - which the New Zealand Herald said today will also be distributed to brothels and sex workers - include detailed advice on safe sex practices such as the storage and handling of sex toys and disinfecting equipment.
