Legalization of Prostitution in Prague Soon?

The prostitutes would become the entrepreneurs. They would pay taxes, carry a special id, and go for a medical check-up every three months. These are the main points of the public notice the Prague Council agreed on yesterday. Now, the Pavel Bem’s representative Rudof Blazek’s lobby focuses on ministries and regions. The proposal probably goes to the parliament on November.

The capital expects of the law above all reducing numbers of brothels and setting of clear rules for their operation. Blazek explains: “There are about ten fancy houses on Wenceslas Square and its surrounding streets only. The law, however, doesn’t know the term prostitution, so there is hardly any possibility to control or regulate the business.”

There is over sixty brothels and erotic clubs in the capital. Most of them are approved as bars, hotels or massage saloons. Whether or not they will be able to put ‘brothel’ in their name proudly we find this November.
