The idea is to help those in need of sexual release
A German lawmaker has proposed a controversial bill that would require doctors to prescribe a trip to the brothels to provide sexual relief to the elderly and disabled reports TroFire.
The bill was brought forward by Green Party member Elizabeth Scharfenberg. She argued that most of the aged population in Germany as well as the disabled cannot obtain sexual relief by themselves and doctors should be allowed to provide prescriptions to brothels to help them.
Prostitution is largely legal in Germany with the existence of several red light districts. Scharfenberg hopes that the passing of the bill would allow these places to be used in a more therapeutic way.
Should the law pass, TroFire reports that “patients must display an inability to achieve sexual satisfaction through organic means before being prescribed a trip to the brothel.”
According to the report, Germany’s brothels are already providing therapeutic services to the elderly and disabled. However, this bill would allow for sexual services to be prescribed by doctors as medical services.
