Official or current statistics on the number of escorts in Australia are unavailable. Nevertheless, in 2016, the United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) estimated that there were approximately 20,500 sex workers in Australia, with escorts constituting a substantial portion.
It's worth mentioning that the term "escort" encompasses a broad spectrum of sex work, ranging from those offering companionship and sexual services discreetly to those operating in brothels or on the streets. Consequently, providing a precise count of escorts in Australia is challenging.
Nevertheless, drawing from available data and expert opinions, it is probable that there are several thousand escorts actively working in Australia. The majority of escorts are women, but there is also a growing presence of male and transgender escorts.
Additionally, it's crucial to understand that the sex industry in Australia lacks significant regulation, making it challenging to compile accurate statistics on the number of sex workers, including escorts. As a result, the estimates provided should be viewed as approximations.
