Excellent find, TL. Now that several European countries (including the UK and Italy) officially recognise the paid sex market as a driver for GDP, mainstream press is starting to look at it. It doesn't really say much about the state of the sex market, which has always been a big "dark pool" of money, as it
says about the sheer desperation of these governments, who have to try and account for every sort of positive economic activity to massage their growth figure the way up. Sad...

Oh please, that was just a way for you guys to inflate your falling GDP, a little more cushion to make yourselves look better than you are.
