Copenhagen Sex and Prostitution
From: Copenhagen, Denmark
Denmark abolished film censorship in 1969, and in November of that year the Danish porn industry attacted worldwide attention with the Copenhagen Sex Fair. Ever since then, Copenhagen has enjoyed a dubious reputation as Europe's capital of pornography, prostitution, and live sex shows.
In reality, the city is tame in comparison with Amsterdam or Hamburg, where hookers display their wares behind shop windows. Brothels are illegal, full-time prostitution is forbidden, and commercial sex activities largely take place out of the public view.
