    'It's going to be an invasion'

    When Germany plays host to the World Cup next summer, it expects not just an influx of fans, but an even bigger one - of prostitutes. Luke Harding on the preparations in hand

    The giant red phallus billowing from the roof is a bit of a give away. Just next to a busy main road and tucked incongruously behind a tyre repair workshop, is Artemis, Berlin's newest, most luxurious brothel. There is, as such, nothing remarkable about the vast four-storey bordello that opened its doors two months ago in an anonymous industrial estate in Berlin. Except, perhaps, for its location. The sex facility is a short drive from Berlin's Olympiastadion, the famous stadium used by the Nazis to host the 1936 Olympics, and - more importantly - the venue for next year's World Cup.,00.html

    Prostitution is for the most part legal in Germany. You can, and I´m not joking, retire at 65 if you declare your prostitution income and pay into the social security system. So, yes, business will boom, but there will be a battle between the legal and illegal street workers who sell themselves cheap. You can also expect an increase in the drug trade as well. Organized crime will have a field day.
