The decline in the number of people visiting Kings Cross has clearly reduced the number of 'nightwalkers' - but there are other reasons for this shift besides the lockout laws.
Around the world, prostitutes are increasingly using the internet to find clients, whether via dating apps, house-sharing websites or simply on Twitter.
They say it is safer and they can make more money this way than on the streets. The laws were passed in February in response to campaigns after after two young men were killed in drunken attacks in and Under the laws, inner-city bars must refuse entry to anyone after 1. Thousands of people have taken to the streets with the Keep Sydney Open movement to furiously campaign against Sydney's dying nightlife, but the city appears to have lost its shine.
Prostitutes at one Melbourne brothel, for example, post daily tweets advertising their services with teasing bedroom pictures. The brothel, named Number , calls itself 'the home of the happy ending. Open seven nights a week, it advertises which women are working with a daily twitter post to loyal followers. The prostitutes' tweets often get dozens of retweets and replies: Other prostitutes have admitted to using Tinder to advertise their services.
One who uses the name Lilly Chatte described how she replies to men she matches with saying she would be happy to meet up 'but it won't be free. She told The Sun: All the men I have met on Tinder solely want to meet for sex, they don't want to date.
I am making so much money now I work out of a hotel. And it's not just dating apps and websites that are used for buying and selling sex. Last month, Daily Mail Australia reported on how sex workers were advertising on classified advertisements website Craigslist.
A new app has been developed which connects sex workers, male and female, to users pictured - Rendevu was founded in a bid to create a safe space for sex workers in NSW. Perverted landlords are offering free rent in return for sex while some of the site's users are offering sexual favours to get free accommodation. One lengthy post advertised for a 'sexually submissive female pet' to make herself 'sexually available'. The growth of the online sex industry has been facilitated by new apps, too.
Founded in Sydney, Rendevu is a new Uber-style app which matches individual sex workers and escort companies with clients. Surrounded by family homes in a sleepy Melbourne suburb, Number Johnston Street looks like a normal terraced house.
But inside is a seedy world of 'mischief, wonder and temptation. Mila Jovi, who runs a Sydney-based escort agency that uses the app, described it as a 'game changer'. She told Daily Mail Australia: It's super safe, because everyone is vetted and customers have to put their credit card details into the app before they receive their booking. This eliminates all of that and makes safety not as big of a concern as it has been.
There is little doubt that Sydney's lockout laws have pushed prostitutes out of sight, but this must be seen in the context of a wider market shift from the street to the screen.
