Prostitution in Germany is legal, as are other aspects of the sex industry, including brothels , advertisement, and job offers through HR companies. Full service sex work is widespread and regulated by the German government , which levies taxes on it. However, the social stigmatization of sex work persists and many workers continue to lead a double life. Sex work in historically German lands has never been outlawed and has been described since the Middle Ages.

Welcome to Paradise: inside the world of legalised prostitution
At the Hamburg Institute for Sex Research in Germany, a nationwide study is currently being carried out into the sexual experiences, attitudes and relationships of adults years. The main focus of this pilot study is to test the comprehensibility and length of a data collecting instrument as well as the comparison of two data collecting methods with regard to reliability and representativeness of the results as well as of the refusal rate. The data to be collected relates to sexuality, particularly the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections STIs. The WHO definition of sexual health forms the basis for the study and thus connects up with the existing sex survey research in Europe and western industrial nations. Comparable surveys have been conducted over the past ten years in more than 30 European countries using a variety of methods.

BERLIN Reuters - Thousands of foreign prostitutes working in Germany have been made homeless after brothels closed due to the coronavirus outbreak and borders snapped shut, making it difficult for them to return home. Authorities in the country, where prostitution has been legal for almost two decades, shut brothels last month along with other non-essential businesses like restaurants and nightclubs to slow the spread of the virus. But since then she has been staying with the brothel manager.
P aradise is a brothel in Stuttgart. In Bangkok aged 19 I checked in to a place called Mango Inn with two school friends. But that scuzzy little concern, with its scarlet-haired manager and beery tourist crowd, was seriously small fry compared to this. Paradise is a chain, like Primark or Pizza Hut, with five branches and three more on the way. So business is booming, I say to Michael Beretin, a partner in the company.
