World Cup Soccer
As one of the cities that will host games, Dortmund is intent on putting on its best face for the hordes of soccer fans that will descend next year. So they're cleaning up and fixing up. But what to do about the estimated 40,000 prostitutes that are expected to stop by? The city fathers have it covered: "they are rushing to install a series of drive-in wooden sex garages." An official explained:
"In Dortmund we have an official red light district on the outskirts, but there is a problem. There is not enough space for everyone to park."
Dortmund plans to arrange the Dutch-designed huts, which have been introduced in the city of Cologne, another World Cup venue, in an area with condom machines and snack bar.
"Men have to get used to them of course, but a high percentage accept them because they can protect their anonymity," the official said.
"That said there will always be those who want to go behind a bush, under a bridge or into the woods."
Indeed. Can't have those tourists going off into the woods. And the snack bar is a nice touch. Story HERE.
