Title Versorgung zur sexuellen Gesundheit unter dem Prostituiertenschutzgesetz – mehr Fragen als Antworten? / Sexual Health Care under the Prostitutes Protection Act : More Questions than Answers?
Author Langanke, Harriet
Date 2018
English abstract
An act named the Prostitutes Protection Act (ProstSchG), thereby claiming to protect sex workers, needs to be questioned as to whether its intention to protect actually has any impact on the sexual health of the group addressed. The article reviews the fundamental approach of the law and considers its relationship to other legal regulations serving the sexual health of people in sex work. Taking three issues explicitly mentioned by the ProstSchG (mandatory registration, mandatory counseling and mandatory condom use), the article explains how the law puts sexual health in sex work structurally at risk. The article shows that stigmatizing controlling mechanisms associated with the ProstSchG actually enhance the vulnerability of the target group instead of protecting their sexual health.
