Tough times for German bordello

Times are tough for Hamburg's hookers.

The oldest house of ill repute in the German city's red-light district is shutting down.

Madam Hehrer says she's closing her Hotel Luxor next month because of a lack of business.

She tells local newspapers that Internet porn and call-girl services are taking much of her trade.

The red light district isn't what it used to be, either.

The madam complains there are now noisy discos and dance clubs on her street.

One of the Luxor's working girls says they used to make more than three-thousand bucks a night.

Now, "Nicole" says she's lucky to clear about $300.
