Spiegel says legalization of prostitution has failed

When Germany legalized prostitution just over a decade ago, politicians hoped that it would create better conditions and more autonomy for sex workers. It hasn't worked out that way, though. Exploitation and human trafficking remain significant problems. Spiegel
The question is always whether making it illegal would make thing worse. But boy, this does make me pause
