Prostitution brings $20,000 in taxes for Bonn, Germany

They say prostitution is the oldest job in the world. However, nowadays, it is not a recognized job in every country. There are disputes over the utility of recognizing prostitution, one of the arguments used being taxes for the state/country. Of course, the other important argument is related to health – recognizing prostitutes means also healthcare for them and an insurance for “users”.

It seems that for Bonn, Germany, prostitution is indeed a good source for money. The city of Bonn, Germany, “collected around $20,000 last year from prostitution taxes paid via automated curbside pay stations or “sex meters.” Under the new program, sex workers are required to purchase tickets to work the streets at night, the Associated Foreign Press reports.

While a number of other German cities collect taxes from prostitutes working in brothels, Bonn became the first city to extend general prostitution taxes to workers soliciting clients on the street when it introduced the sex meters last August, according to the AFP.” quoted by Huffington Post.

So Bonn is the the city that took tax collection further. And it seems it payed off. Prostitution is a reality.

What do you think about Bonn’s idea and results?
