Julia Weiss reports from MITTE:

  • The corona crisis increases social injustice. This is not only shown by the outbreaks in Berlin apartment buildings, where people have to live together in a small space. In Mitte, aid organizations now draw attention to the plight of sex workers in the district. Because while massage salons and beauty salons are allowed to open again, sex work is still not allowed. Even a long-term ban is under discussion. “The corona crisis is being used to spark renewed debate about a ban on sex buying in Germany,” said Lea Rakovsky of the counseling center against human trafficking Ban Ying. It does not help the women concerned, on the contrary. “They are further pushed into illegality, free people simply pay less or not at all because the women cannot complain,” says Rakovsky. In addition, there are also many self-determined sex workers who want to continue their profession in compliance with corona rules.
