A firm of private investigators in Australia has been advertising for a £50,000-a-year ‘brothel inspector’.
The post involves “partaking of sexual services” undercover on behalf of local councils in New South Wales.
The Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group in Sydney placed the ad for a ‘Brothel Buster Investigator’ in My Career magazine.
Applicants were required to be unmarried and preferably single, willing to have protected sex with prostitutes and to provide sworn evidence in court.
Lyonswood operations manager Lachlan Jarvis said the job involved visiting suspected illegal brothels and gathering evidence to prove they were offering sexual services.
“Some jobs require the offering of sexual services, some actually require the partaking of sexual services… because it is considered the most convincing evidence,” he said.
Mr Jarvis said the ad had proved popular with Sydney job seekers.
“We had dozens if not more than that apply, it was certainly a popular job,” he said, “the perfect job for a male.”
