SNUFF; Prostitutes in the German city of Bonn must carry a ticket purchased from a new parking meter-like machine while working the streets or face hefty fines from tax authorities in a new scheme launched this week.

In Germany, ladies of the night pay income tax – the level of which varies from region to region – but compliance is difficult to enforce with women seeking business on the street.

Germany’s first “sex tax meters,” from which prostitutes can purchase a ticket for €6 (NZ$10.16) per night, will ensure the tax system is fairly implemented, a city spokeswoman said.

“Inspectors will monitor compliance – not every evening but frequently,” the spokeswoman told Reuters.

If caught without a valid ticket, offenders will first be reprimanded, then face fines and later even a ban.

About 200 prostitutes work in Bonn. Due to protests from residents, city officials have limited the areas of operation to specific quarters.
