Tradition of Prostitution to be banned in Prater

Post by Tatt » Wed Jun 05, 2013 3:12 pm

I just read this stark news:
Prostitution to be banned in the Prater
http://austriantimes.at/news/General_Ne ... _in_Prater_

I live close to the Prater and used to see this Austrian tradition when I was out walking with my daughter. Now she will have to travel much further afield to see the oldest trade in the world being practised. It is indeed sad news.

Oh, and in other pertinent news; it's raining quite a lot. Don't leave anything valuable in your cellar.

You mean banning the trade. You cannot ban the tradition, that will never go away.

Actually I suppose I mean banning the active-advertising (or soliciting) of the trade - you cannot ban the trade itself of course.

More's the pity.


I hate Prater, it's such a dump.
