Présentation de l'éditeur
The clothes and gestures are the same in all women who stand along Kurfuerstenstraße (Berlin) around the clock. Potential clients are enticed with kisses, smart phones in one ear, tight miniskirts and unique gestures. F****ng and b***jobs are done in cars, behind bushes or in one of the w*** cabins. I stood there too, not so long ago. I kept my high heels on during a f***. Most clients came quicker then.
I remember very well how my first client eja******** into my right hand for the first time. This happened nearly five years ago. I was quite surprised how little it bothered me. It was already clear to me then, that things weren´t going to stay like that forever. You only make money if you get f****d and do a good b***job.
B***jobs of all variations turned quite quickly into my specialty deals. I used up a tremendous amount of lipsticks, because I used to reapply it to my lips very heavily after I got the job done.
Bright red lips and gleaming white teeth soon became my trademark.
“Do you wanna f*** me?” was the way I would start a conversation with my clients.
“This is all written and told from my own perspective. The police or a client may perceive and judge things very differently. The prostitutes themselves already have their own opinions. A 21-year old Bulgarian woman once told me: “What are you complaining about? It´s much better here for me than it was in Bulgaria. And it´s even better for you here than it is for me! The men are friendly and most of the time they aren´t even drunk. But nevertheless, I want to get away from here. I miss my kids. But for now, I have to stay here, because my husband lost me playing cards with a pimp. I don´t know what to expect when I get back to Bulgaria. I´ll probably be passed around my relatives. But I won´t get any money anymore for f***ing. I’m better off here. If it wasn´t for my kids, then I would never go back to Bulgaria. Berlin is fantastic!”
Since 2002, prostitution is legal in Germany. This decision has turned our country into a pimp´s paradise and clients came from all over Europe.
There are more working prostitutes in Germany than there are in Thailand. It is estimated that there are 400,000 women who prostitute themselves involuntarily or ‘voluntarily’.
Every single day, 1,200,000 men visit brothels or pick up a street prostitute. 15,000,000,000 Euros are made in Germany by women who sell s**. This is three times as much as Porsche´s sales.
Between 2002 and 2014, the turnover nearly tripled. Mostly all of the money is unreported and back-handed and ends up somewhere in the channels of the organized crime.
Berlin is the capital of prostitution, more so than Amsterdam.
I will tell you about my time on Kurfürstenstraße.
