Several states in northern Germany are set to lift or ease pandemic restrictions on prostitution, with North Rhine-Westphalia now allowing sex workers to their business. The decision comes in the wake of several court cases filed by sex workers, who argued the restrictions unfairly discriminated against them. The sex workers contrasted the ban on their activities with the lifting weeks ago on gyms and physical fitness studios. The Higher Administrative Court of North Rhine-Westphalia agreed with the argument, ruling it was not clear the risk of infection was much higher during sexual acts between a couple than at private gatherings of up to people. It overturned the ban on prostitution with the ruling taking effect Tuesday in North Rhine-Westphalia, which banned sex work five months ago. Several courts have followed suit and three other jurisdictions, including the city states of Hamburg and Bremen, will allow brothels to business September
