Taking the Crime Out of Sex Work free pdf New Zealand was the first country in the world to decriminalise all sectors of sex work.

It provides first hand views and experience on this policy from the point of view of those involved in the sex industry, as well as people involved in developing, implementing, researching and reviewing the policies.
