A brothel or bordello is a place where people may come to engage in sexual activity with a prostitute, technically, any premises where prostitution commonly takes place qualifies as a brothel.

The operation of brothels is illegal in most parts, although in some countries, known illegal brothels may be tolerated or laws not strictly enforced.
In a few parts, prostitution and operating a brothel is legal and regulated. The degree of regulation varies widely by country.

In 1986, the Victorian Labour government [Victoria, Australia] legalized brothels, claiming crime would be eliminated, sex workers lives would be made safer, and there would be fewer health risks, a further study was carried out in 1998 to show the difference in the transmission of STDs among sex workers as follows: “The prevalence of sexually transmitted bacterial infections was 80 times greater in 63 illegal street hookers than in 753 of their legal brothel counterparts....” Occupational health and safety law is only applied to working girls in lawful brothels but not to their illegal counterparts on the street, lots of sex workers work outside the law in Australia and this has implications for their health that are hard to quantify.
