“Lipstick on a pig” has become more than a metaphor in Germany, where, according to the Daily Mail, bestiality brothels are all the rage these days.
A law that makes sex with animals legal (although animal porn is still illegal!) has turned bestiality into a big business.
Bestiality dropped off the statute books as a crime in 1969 but in recent years the number of people believed to be participating in such acts has increased significantly.
It’s probably pure coincidence, but I would be remiss in not pointing out that the rise in people doing the nasty with farm animals coincides with the arrival in Germany of several hundred thousand refugees in 2015 and 2016.
In addition to the influx of bestiality brothels, the country now has “erotic zoos” where visitors are welcome to abuse animals ranging from llamas to goats.
The German Parliament is now considering reinstating an animal protection law that would levy fines of up to £20,000 for a first offense. But an organization named ZETA, which sounds like the opposite of PETA (the “z” stands for zoophile), has threatened a legal challenge in the event a ban on bestiality becomes law.
“Mere concepts of morality have no business being law,” said ZETA chairman Michael Kiok.
