Under certain circumstances, sexual intercourse within your own four walls is now also prohibited – when it comes to love that can be bought. While prostitutes’ home visits were allowed in earlier lockdowns, they are now banned in the current lockdown, as the Ministry of Health confirmed to “heute.at”.
Advice centers had previously sent a request to the ministry in relation to home visits. “According to Section 8 (5) of the currently valid COVID-19 Emergency Measures Ordinance, entering external workplaces for the purpose of providing body-friendly services is prohibited, and sex-related services are also body-friendly services,” says a letter from the Ministry of Health. Those who do not adhere to them can face hefty penalties.
