Germany: Greens ask Government to pay for sex services for the disabled

The Green Party in Germany is appealing for Government to foot the bill for disabled persons on a low income who have to pay for sex services.

Prostitution in Germany became legal in 2002, and sex services are openly advertised. It has been common practice for prostitutes to also offer their services at homes for the disabled, with carers at these homes pointing out that these services are very beneficial for the residents.

Elisabeth Scharfenberg, an MP on behalf of the Green Party, said it was not difficult to imagine a scenario where these services for the disabled who cannot afford to pay would be covered by public funds.

A similar system already exists in Holland, where one can apply for a Government refund for payment of sex services.
