Will Germany Pay For Prostitutes For The Poor?

Now here is a topic that can get more politicians of this political party elected. What’s not to like? Free sex, paid by the government. Of course, it’s never “free,” someone pays for it. No, this is not happening in the US. It’s actually in Germany.

What a great idea for a political campaign of a minor party, such as the Green Party, at least in some countries. It probably wouldn’t work in puritan USA or Britain, unless it is sold as a way to help the underprivileged as an entitlement.

You would need a prescription from your doctor. So, if you live in Germany, or plan to move there, invite your doctor for a few beers.

The following article by Mish Shedlock gives some details.

Free Sex: Green Party Pledges to Pay for Prostitutes for Those Needing ‘Sexual Assistance’

The happy hookers union will be happy with this proposal: Germany Green Party pledges to pay for free sex with prostitutes for anyone who needs ‘sexual assistance’ and can’t afford it.

Sex with prostitutes will be paid for by the Government for anyone too poor for a hooker and deemed to need sexual assistance under German Green Party plans.

The party’s care spokeswoman, Elisabeth Scharfenberg, says doctors should have the right to issue the free prescriptions to their patients for ladies of the night.

Prostitution is legal in Germany and carries little of the taboos associated with it in many other countries.

There are brothels in virtually every town and a trend recently began with working girls offering ‘sexual assistance’ to dementia sufferers, the handicapped and people living in care homes.

‘I can imagine a public financing of sexual assistance,’ Scharfenberg said in an article in the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

The Greens’ plans consists of patients obtaining a medical certificate confirming that ‘they are unable to achieve sexual satisfaction in other ways, as well as to prove they are not able to pay sex workers on their own’.

Scharfenberg said: ‘Municipalities could discuss appropriate offers on site and grants they would need.’

What’s Next?

It ain’t “free” if someone pays for it.

Do Germans want their tax dollars paying for this boondoggle?

OUR VIEW: Don’t move yet. It’s only a proposal.
