June 9 to July 9, 2006, 12 German cities will host the World Cup Games
with about 3 million football fans attending. It is estimated that
40,000 women will be imported from Central and Eastern Europe into
Germany to sexually service the men.
Germany legalized pimping and prostitution in 2002. In preparation
for this influx, the German sex industry has erected a massive
prostitution complex for the increased business of sexual exploitation
that is expected during the games.
The country’s largest and most luxurious brothel opened a few months
ago in Berlin. Its facilities occupy 400 square metres and its 70 rooms
can cater to some 600 clients a day.
In the German capital, sponsors are being sought to distribute
100,000 condoms in the vicinity of the Olympic stadium, and the town
halls of the 12 cities that will host the football championship plan to
provide special licences so that sex workers can offer their services
on the street.
