    The Last Of The Bordellos

    The oldest bordello in Hamburg, Germany, is closing this April, but it isn’t the customers who frequented Hotel Luxor who are at a loss. No, it’s the four remaining prostitutes. “The end won’t be easy for me. I’ve been in the business since 1988. I like to pole dance and get guys excited,” said “Nicole,” one of the final four. “But in all the other striptease clubs, the dancers aren’t allowed to weigh more than 60 kilograms (132 pounds), and I’m clearly a good bit over that.” This is one of the more heartbreaking stories I’ve heard. Not only is Nicole losing her job, but she says she’s going to have to go on a diet before she can even look for a new one.

    Hotel Luxor is closing because sex isn’t lucrative in Hamburg anymore. “These teenagers aren’t our clientele; they just couldn’t afford it,” said Waltraud Mehrer, the establishment’s madam. “The Internet is also a real competitor,” she added. “Many men prefer to download porn and gratify themselves in that way.” Along with the privacy of their own home, men also prefer the peace and quiet of a hotel room along with a call girl, rather than the busy scene of a bordello.
