Granny grows tired of prostitution at age 63

BERLIN (Reuters) - A Berlin grandmother who has worked the city's diplomatic quarter as a prostitute for the last 49 years plans to retire when she turns 64 next year, according to Germany's Bild newspaper.

 

Even though prostitutes were forced to leave the area after the Berlin Wall, fell because dead-end streets in the downtrodden district were re-connected to east Berlin and property values surged, Renate Dolle was allowed to stay, Bild said.

 

"I've got a lot of regular clients," the blonde woman told the newspaper, pictured wearing a short red mini skirt and high-heeled white boots as she stood near the Japanese embassy. She said she charges 30 euros ($36) and on good nights she has four to five clients.

 

"I'm going to stop at 64 and retire," said Dolle, whose husband drops her off for work each night after the television evening news and who has a nine-year-old granddaughter.

 

She is one of 10,000 prostitutes in Berlin and 400,000 in Germany, where prostitution is legal. Dolle said she tried to work in a popular red light district nearby recently but was chased away by younger competitors.

 

"What do you want here, you old whore, get lost," Dolle said they shouted at her. "What did I ever do to them?"

Apparently in germany many people dont see anything wrong with prostitution, its just another job.

I'm pretty sure it's regulated by the government. Heck, they're probably the most productive government employees in the world.

in Germany, and in the Netherlands too, it's legal as long as it's not on the street but behind a window

i checked it out last year in Amsterdam, it's mostly addicts that prostitute to get money for drugs...there were some old women as well, maybe not 63 but some 50 year olds...disgusting

Yeah, in my home country (Ecuador) and if I'm not mistaken, in most South American countries it is regulated by the gov't. I know in Ecuador you have to get tested for STD's every year, and if you have any, you wont be given your prostitution liscence.

As ridiculous as this may sound, I see it as a smarter solution to prostitution that simply disallowing it completely.
