Big Pimpin'

Czech brothels are feeling the effects of stagnant economies in Britain and Germany, which are keeping would-be sex tourists at home with their wives. The solution? Legalize prostitution so that johns feel safer. Not everyone in the Czech Republic favors the plan, however. Some prostitutes say that proposed ID cards would stigmatize them. And others say legalizing prostitution "would effectively transform the Czech state into the country's biggest pimp." [IHT]
