Parking Meters Collect Sex Tax

You all know how much I like to educate and inform as well as entertain with these posts, so how about we begin with some facts about Bonn, Germany.

It is the 19th largest city in Germany. From 1949 to 1990, Bonn was the capital of what was then West Germany and it remained the seat of a united Germany from 1990 to 1999 - that seat now resides in Berlin, of course. The city is also the birthplace of the great Ludwig Van Beethoven (he was born in 1770 in case you were wondering). And, authorities have just instituted a program here that requires prostitutes to use modified parking meters to purchase daily tickets to work the streets.

The tickets are valid for one day only from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning. Inspectors will be monitoring the streets and if they catch a prostitute working without a ticket she can be saddled with some major fines (although, it is said that the first infraction will garner just a warning). Oh yeah, this brings up maybe the most important fact about Bonn: prostitution is legal in the city between the hours of 8:15 p.m. and 6 a.m. YAY!

Before we go on, were you looking for a really, really bad video of a chick pretending to be a German prostitute living in Canada? Well, look no further, because here it is:

Now, my first question is why 8:15 p.m? Is there something wrong with 8 o'clock? I wonder if it's like many of the jobs I've had over the years where they expect you to arrive 15 minutes before you officially start work so you have time to get your coffee, put on your uniform (yup, I've worked at places where uniforms were required), log into your computer, etc.

I can just picture an empty street. Then 8 o'clock hits and women in business suits start to filter in from all the side streets with a coffee and the paper. They mingle chatting about last night's episode of German Idol and how the new lube they've found works better than the other kind.

Then around ten past eight they all disperse and head to their corners where they throw on some bad makeup and remove their business suits to reveal their uniform of fishnet stockings, mini-skirts, belly tops and leather boots. The clock then chimes 8:15 p.m. as slow-driving cars turn onto the street.

Tickets will cost six Euros each ($8.70 USD) and, this is my favorite part, many of the things I read about this made sure to point out that the price was a flat rate, regardless of how many clients the lady might have in a night. Officials say that this measure should bring in about $270,000 a year for the city. Yet another reason America, except for Nevada, should get off its fat, puritanical ass and legalize prostitution already!

Okay, now go look at some porn (mostly German): German Baby Dolls, My First Butt Sex and Red Optics.
