Germans are fun!

You read that right. In spite of their Twentieth Century reputation for being, er, somewhat joyless, we've managed to turn the Krauts into the Las Vegas of Europe:
One in three university students in the German capital would consider sex work as a means to finance their education, a study from the Berlin Studies Center said on Wednesday.

The figure in Berlin, where prostitution is legal, was higher than students surveyed in Paris (29.2 percent) and in Kiev (18.5 percent), the three cities the report looked at.

The study found some 4 percent of the 3,200 Berlin students surveyed said they had already done some form of sex work, which includes prostitution, erotic dancing and Internet shows.
A Nation of whores isn't necessarily something to aspire toward, but it's probably something that Germany's neighbors can be a little more comfortable with.
