Genie: You have 3 wishes.

Me: I've seen this before. Whatever I wish for will come back and bite me in some way.

Genie: I promise that won't happen. I'm so sure it won't I'll give you infinite wishes if it does.

Me: Okay. I wish for a boomerang with teeth.

Genie: You sonofa-

If they can hang on until some restrictions are limited, they'll be overrun by extremely horny people who have been stuck at home.

So, prostitution isn't an essential business?  Then it should never come back.  There will be more viruses.  We should stay on lockdown, with only essential people doing essential things traveling or going places.  We need to lock the non essentials in their homes, weld them in if necessary.  For safety.  And if they die, they were non essential, so not a big loss.  We need to limit international travel to essential business only.  Most of that should be done via skype or zoom anyways.  Or just do away with international travel.  Nobody needs to visit hookers in Amsterdam, therefore it should be eliminated.  We need to get our priorities straight.  If we won't nuke the hotzones to limit the spread of the virus, we need to lock people down.  HARD.

Good.  That is how the corona spreads.  It so far has not become digital, so look at porn, on line.  We don't need to have meat space hookers, that can spread the virus.  We are at war, right?  And all that is being asked of us is to stay at home and play animal crossing.  Not like our grand fathers who were asked to go die in the mud.  I am glad you are with me.  Because we are all in this together.  Stay isolated.  And support the forced isolation of the non essentials.  The should have become essential if they had such a desire for sausage to clam contact.

Some people might. Like those who profit directly from it. But almost none of the actual residents tend to like the effects of much if any tourism unless they're employed by it. In fact from this very article itself:

"These days, Bert Nap has to hop on the subway anytime he needs to buy a loaf of bread. "There's no bakery in the neighborhood, but there are waffles with Nutella and souvenirs everywhere," Nap says. "If the sex workers and clients came back, there would be no reason to complain. But if mass tourism returns, all hell will simply break loose again. We should focus on the real problem: the global tourism industry."

He's not alone in this view. In late April, European Commissioner Thierry Breton told a committee of MEPs: "We must find an answer to the excesses of mass tourism.""

So, you are a proponent of spreading the Corona?  You want your hookers to die?  At least I am trying to keep them safe.

But de Vries, a sex worker, simply can't believe what she is seeing: complete emptiness.

Then she should put her pants back on and stop looking down on the unemployed.

They haven't just switched to camgirl websites? They can still make a lot of money doing that, probably moreso now.

For safety, just do it doggy style.

Why are they in the same room?  They could put on the VR goggles from their own homes.

Know what else spreads the Corona?  Bars.  Don't need 'em.  Close 'em down forever.

For that matter, might as well get rid of alcohol too.  It causes way more health problems than the reefer.

What makes the situation extra shiatty, is that although there is corona-related financial aid in place for businesses, salaried workers and freelancers, most legal sex workers in the Netherlands (the ones who work at clubs and (BDSM) studios) work through a so-called 'opt-in' system, which means that legally they are neither salaried workers nor freelancers and don't get any financial aid whatsoever, and are basically left with 0 income right now. Unfortunately, I don't think this is a coincidence either. Sex workers are basically the last group of 'sinners' in the Netherlands that the Christian parties in government can still attack without facing too much of a public backlash, and they'll happily make life as difficult as possible for them both on a national and a local level. They'll just use the 'we're doing it to stop illegal prostitution' excuse, even though most of the restrictions they place on legal sex workers only end up promoting illegal sex work.

Also helps that a lot of them are immigrants from the Soviet Bloc.

I am fine with closing the bars.  A person should drink alone, and in the dark, like god intended.  However, alcohol kills the virus, so you lose on that one.

Oh if you lock people down so they can't see prostitutes, they will be hard all right.

Yeah..... but when the tourist tax revenue drops EVERYBODY pays. The fact that they found some locals who don't get that means nothing. Ask them after their taxes skyrocket to make up the deficit.
