They say sex sells; in this case, literally.
Last week the Spanish parliament reversed a 2010 ban on advertising by Spanish prostitutes and brothels, ThinkSpain reports.
In Spain, prostitution is legal, and it is estimated that 200,000-400,000 women work in the industry.
The idea behind the reversal is to stimulate Spain’s poor economy. The sex industry spent approximately €40 million annually on advertising, according to a 2007 report.
Although the rule has temporarily been lifted, the leading party in Spain, the conservative People’s Party, will most likely try to re-ban prostitution ads.
