The Law and BDSM and Fetish Work

See the above section, The Law and Sex Work, for an introduction to the Criminal Code provisions related to prostitution and bawdy-houses.

Dungeons* or other venues can be considered bawdy-houses if the sale of sexual services or regular indecent acts occur there.

The definition of ‘indecent act*’ is not exact and is decided in court based on community standards of tolerance*, or what the community would find it acceptable for other members of the community to do or see. The Courts take into account the possible harmfulness or anti-social behaviour that could result from viewing or participating in the act, as well as the circumstances.
