France Considers Repealing Prostitution Restrictions

Whoah ... Making life easier doesn't come naturally for the French

Sexual solicitation may be illegal in France's capital city, but it might not stay that way for long.

If a proposal to repeal a 10-year-old solicitation law passes the French Senate latter this month, public prostitution could become legal in Paris, the Local notes.

Proposed by Sen. Esther Benbassa, a member of the French Green Party, the legislation seeks to overturn a law introduced in 2003 by then-Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy that made it illegal for sex workers to wear revealing attire and solicit customers in a public place.
