We Sure Could Use ‘Em

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has raised the possibility of legalising brothels – outlawed in the country since 1958.

The number of prostitutes working the streets in Italian cities has increased, with many women smuggled into the country from eastern Europe and Africa by criminal gangs.

Italy might follow the Netherlands’ example
“Like many Italians, I would be ashamed to walk the streets with my daughters,” said Mr Berlusconi.pleasure

“Maybe we need to open brothels, regulate them,” he said.
There are over 40,000 prostitutes working in Italy, the majority of whom are brought to the country and forced into the sex industry.

“We need to protect these girls, many of whom are in slavery,” said the prime minister.
