STUFF: Christchurch prostitutes aren’t letting natural disaster prevent them from plying their trade on the streets despite the dangers of aftershocks in the city.

However, the national office of the organisation that lobbies for sex workers, the New Zealand Prostitute’s Collective (NZPC), said street walking had become riskier than ever in the wake of Tuesday’s devastating quake.

Yet early yesterday there were signs the sex trade is returning to the streets of Christchurch, albeit shuffled from the cordoned CBD.

In the suburbs of Phillipstown and Waltham, living conditions are strained.

Water supplies are severed, electricity is intermittent, roading is shattered, mud from liquefaction is everywhere and buildings are collapsed.

Yet after dark there is an element of vice.

Teetering in boots, two women picked their way through mud and rubble of collapsed shops in Ferry Rd, towards the visibly leaning Lancaster Park Hotel.

“Do we look pretty?” one, dressed in a skimpy red corset, asked. “Two prostitutes walking down the street.”

Questioned as to the safety of walking the streets, she was blase.

“You’re working too aren’t you; we have to live.”

NZPC’s Christchurch regional co-ordinator, Anna Reed, said it was a concern sex workers were standing in the shadow of potentially unsafe buildings as the city was shaken by aftershocks, but said the shattered CBD had “left them with no outlet”.

Like the collective’s Christchurch branch office, which is extensively damaged, inner-city massage parlours were locked behind the cordon, damaged or destroyed, she said.
