Prostitution in New Zealand , brothel-keeping, living off the proceeds of someone else's prostitution, and street solicitation are legal in New Zealand and have been since the Prostitution Reform Act came into effect. Coercion of sex workers is illegal. Until , indoor prostitution in New Zealand was governed by the Massage Parlours Act , which allowed brothels to operate in the guise of massage parlours. However, the act defined massage parlours as public places, so laws against soliciting in a public place applied to workers in parlours, and they were sometimes raided by police posing as clients. Advertising the sale of sex "soliciting" , running a brothel, and living off the earnings of prostitution were illegal.
Sex workers struggle with contact tracing clients

A Dunedin brothel and strip club is experiencing a spike in the number of women looking for work since Covid closed the doors of both establishments, the owner says. La Maison and Stilettos Revue Bar owner Peter Cooper said since the lockdown started, 10 women who had never worked in the industry before had contacted him asking for work. For privacy reasons, he never asked potential sex workers what job they had previously worked in, he said. Cooper said he was confident the Dunedin brothel and strip club would be able to reopen when the city entered alert level 2. About 30 strippers and sex workers were also employed in the business as independent contractors and could apply for the subsidy themselves, he said. The manager of the bar and brothel, Tabitha Van Belle, said the sex workers she managed had been in regular contact wanting reassurance "they had a job to come back to". A worrying trend since the nation entered lockdown was clients contacting sex workers directly to request a service.
