Forced to prostitution?

While this story of a British Boulevard magazine has already been debunked as fake there might be something to add.

The actual reason behind this is that the government considered it impossible to abolish prostitution (which, arguably, has been proven by history several times). So to enhance living conditions for prostitutes they legalized their job. This enables prostitutes to sue clients for pay, get into various wellfare systems etc.

While it might be actually possible by current unemployment law to be urged to take such a job (as the taz points out) it's of course agains the constitution and common sense. And - as strange as it may sound - even in Germany not every law is being followed to the very point ;-)
