How's this for stupid: the German government is defacto getting into the pimp business. A Berlin woman faces the possibility of losing her unemployment benefits because she is unwilling to take a job in a brothel. This is the result of laws legalising prostitution in 2002, and recent reforms to Germany's welfare and unemployment laws. Its one thing to legalise prostitution, its another to make laws that force people into it.
