A project that aims to regulate the sex worker profession and rights.
The project would not only put an end to the terrible situations sex workers are subjected to, but would also help to avoid child sex trafficking and human trafficking for sexual exploitation.
The site in no way encourages or "advises" about prostitution.
The press reported at the end of 2008 that a government official has announced that the site would be "toned down" following criticism by the media.
The Gabriela Leite law also emphasizes the urgency to regulate brothels and makes a clear distinction between: sexual services and sexual exploitation.
In 2002 pressure by the sex worker organization Davida contributed to the Brazilian Ministry of Labor adding "sex worker" to an official list of occupations.
Those offenses carry sentences from two to five years in prison.
They demanded that they should pay social benefits and get all the privileges like any other worker.Exploitation of child and teenagers through prostitution in Brazil is widespread and a serious problem.Brazil is considered to have the worst levels of child sex trafficking after Thailand, with an estimated 250,000 children involved.Professional sex work is not regulated in any way (no mandatory health checks, no licenses are issued etc.), but sex workers and call girls can contribute to the official government pension fund and receive benefits when they retire.Fernando Gabeira, founder of the Green Party, has been a strong voice for sex workers' rights in Brazil and introduced legislation in Congress to recognize sex workers as a profession. Brazilian sex workers have campaigned for the repeal of laws criminalizing the maintenance of whorehouses and pimping.The young slave girls and women were sent either to work in the brothels or had to offer themselves at the windows of the houses of their owners or they received a passport from their mistress or their master which allowed them to spend the night in the streets, and in dawn they had to return and deliver the money earned by the desecration of their own body.
