Following the legalization of prostitution in Germany brothels have started paying taxes - now they are beginning to feel they should also have access to official job-seekers too. Germans who turn down jobs have their unemployment benefits cut.
"There is now nothing in the law to stop women from being sent into the sex industry. The new regulations say that working in the sex industry is not immoral any more, and so jobs cannot be turned down without a risk to benefits," experts says.
Germany has 4.5 million unemployed people - the highest number since reunification in 1990. Women who have worked in call centers have been offered jobs on telephone sex lines. Now job centers refusing to hire prostitutes are threatened with suits.
