Berlin, the capital of Germany, was founded in the twelfth century. The city became the capital city of Prussia, a small country. In the 18th and 19th century, Prussia grew rapidly forming the basis of the German empire in 1871. Although Berlin has gone through some of the darkest times in the world history, it still stands tall.
Local and international tourists frequent the city to get a share of its popular nightlife and erotic industry. The industry dates back to the Middle Ages. Since the thirteenth century, Berlin (and other German cities) operated brothels known as women’s houses (or Frauenhäuser). Prostitution and other erotic activities were considered as necessary evils.
With the start of the protestant reformation and emergence of syphilis (in the beginning of the 16th century), prostitutes were vigorously prosecuted. In the beginning of the nineteenth century, prostitutes had to register with local health authorities and police. The main idea was to curb venereal diseases.
Although the erotic industry in Berlin dates back to the Middle Ages, it was completely wiped out during the world war and the Nazi eras. After the war, Berlin started working towards taking the erotic industry to its pre-war status. Between 1921 and 1933, Berlin developed a reputation for erotic activities unrivaled to any city before or since.
After the war, the erotic industry grew very fast that sex tourism became a primary industry. Although prostitution has been widely accepted in Berlin, and Germany as a whole, it was only legalized in 2002. The thinking behind legalization of prostitution was to improve the legal position of prostitutes and their profession. After legalization, prostitutes, like all other professionals, could now access medical insurance and could contribute towards retirement schemes.
The legalization was a major boost for the erotic industry. On any evening, about 600 nightlife establishments are open in Berlin. The establishments range from massage parlors to cabarets, sex clubs, and strip clubs. The city offers a variety to make sure everyone finds something to keep him or her entertained all evening and night.
