Plan and plan as you may, organizing an event as large as the Olympics means that things will inevitably slip through the cracks. But credit the fine folks of Vancouver, as they’re seemingly on top of everything. They’re looking to open legal brothels in time for the winter games.
A group of Vancouver prostitutes wants to open a "co-op" brothel in time for the Winter Olympics, saying it would help sex-trade workers by providing a safer working environment when the world comes to visit in 2010.Amazingly, the group has support from some politicians, including Vancouver’s mayor, Sam Sullivan. The argument for legal prostitution often goes along the lines of providing safer working conditions for the women of the night and their customers. But with all the tourists coming to Vancouver, and the money they’re bringing with them, it’s also another revenue stream for the fine people of British Columbia. It’s believed that the city already has many brothels up and running, with the difference being that they’re being operated illegally.
And about those “quickie rooms”...
