Sex Much Ado Over Nothing
Looks like PI Columnist Bonnie Erbe worked herself into a lather about nothing: Germany reports very little change in the level of sex work activity during the World Cup. They can’t seem to find any of those thousands of forced prostitutes, either.
I’m not surprised. I heard the same story about the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996, and about various cities hosting the Superbowl. There’s usually some noise about a jump in the sex trade, and strippers and escorts always hope they’re going to bank, but the reality is: business is usually so-so at best. The guys are focused on sports and beer, not sex.
