(Scroll down for video) A lawmaker in Germany, wants the government to help elderly people get time with prostitutes.

Green Party’s Elisabeth Scharfenberg wants the state to pay prostitutes to have sex with patients requiring nursing care.

She wants to give doctors the ability to prescribe prostitution as a cure the same way that doctors can give prescriptions for medication.

Prostitution in Germany, was legalized in 2002. However, Scharfenberg wants the government to help those who cannot afford it, especially lonely elderly people.

Scharfenberg wants the state to follow in the footsteps of the Netherlands, where people get money for prostitutes.

In order to be approved, people in the Netherlands, have to prove a medical need and they have to show that they are unable to pay for the sex worker themselves.
