According to this, non-sex sexual services may be offered again from 8 August 2020. This concerns dominatrix studios, for example. From 1 September, sexual services with sexual intercourse will also be permitted again under strict hygiene conditions, according to the health administration.
With regard to the often very precarious situation of sex workers, loosening up in this area is called for "from a health and women's policy point of view", it was said. "Otherwise there is a danger that the affected persons will become dependent on others due to economic hardship and will secretly carry out their work under conditions that are dangerous to their health.
