Lingerie, Sex Toys Made Tax-Deductible for Aussie Prostitutes

Tax officials in Australia today issued a list of "tools of the trade" sex workers can deduct on their taxes.

Among other things, the list issued on the Internet includes adult toys, lingerie, condoms, gels and oils. But prostitutes, strippers and lap dancers can't claim fitness classes that keep them in shape. They can, however, claim the cost of dance lessons.

A spokeswoman says it's "just another one of" the occupational lists the Australian Taxation Office puts together to help people.
