'Europe's biggest brothel' tops up state coffers
The French government seems determined to abolish prostitution, but over the border in Germany they've done just the opposite. Ten years ago, prostitution was legalised. Since then the country has earned the title as Europe's biggest brothel - and with good reason. The country is now home to the greatest number of prostitutes on the continent, although many are yet to have proper work contracts.
