Threatening to hang up her whip

Fabienne Freymadl can usually be found in a darkened room, whipping naked men into grateful submission. “I enjoy inflicting all kinds of nasty, cruel punishments,” she said.

But Fabienne's whipping days may be drawing to an end according to yesterday's Sunday Times report by Christopher Goodwin. It seems the German government, which legalised prostitution in 2002, now wants those working in that particular profession to register with the authorities which means, of course, that they will lose their anonymity not to mention more than likely having to pay more income tax. There are two sides to every tale and whilst supporters of the whippers etc are campaigning against the changes, the opposite camp say that the country's liberal laws on prostitution have made it "easier to open a brothel than a fish shop" and things have to change.

Well I'm not taking sides, although I do lean towards the whippers, but I found the article amusing which is why I'm sharing it. What struck me though was the number of prostitutes working in Germany, estimated to be about 250,000!, most of whom are women according to the article. How sexist is that, I mean what about if someone wants to be whipped by a man? Must be an opening there.

Have a good week.

I am sure you could find a Headmaster figure easily enough in Berlin - the difference is you probably would not have to pay him for his services unless you are a man.

Exactly, Michael. That is where the actual sexism may lie. ;-)

Interesting. I often wonder why women who like to wield a whip feel they need to dress in leather all the time? I can think of several other outfits that would be just as good. 250,000 pros huh? Does this tell us something about how women approach the subject of sex? Perhaps that's only the tip of the iceberg too.

Interesting Ronnie, thanks for sharing. I can see why a number would hang up their whips lol. Would be interested to see how this turns out too.


Minelle Labraun said...

I always wonder the same thing as Ami! I mean you never see a male whip wheeler wearing a complicated outfit like woman do. I'm not talking about sexy though!
Keep us updated on the story.

I wonder if there a re men who get paid to deliver that service to women? Or perhaps that would be considered sexist.

Here in Canada we are trying to get prostitution laws changed, mainly for the protection of the sex trade workers, who could call police if they were in danger or being hurt or threatened.


Leigh Smith said...

I've often wondered the same thing!!

Cat - Not sure if we will hear more. Thanks.

Michael - Good point, probably right. Thank you.

MrJ - I'm sure there are men that charge. Thank you.

Ami - I've thought the same thing, black or red leather. I was surprised at the number of pros. Thanks.

Roz - Yes it would. Thank you.

Minelle - Not sure if there will be more to ther story but of course if there is I will share. Thank you.

Hermione - I'm sure there are in some countries or at least I should think so. I've heard of a few countires trying to change prostitution laws. Thank you.

SG - I wondered why that is. Thanks.
