Scene from Berlin in the 1920s. Two Tauentzien Girls. Don’t know what a Tauentzien Girl is? Check out the handy guide below to Berlin prostitutes in the 1920s:
“Compiled by Mel Gordon, in the Winter issue of Cabinet. Because prostitution was illegal, prostitutes had to signal their vocation indirectly. Gordon is the author of Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin.
BOOT GIRLS: Dominatrices whose sexual services were signaled by the color of their boots, laces, and ribbons, sometimes worn in combination.
BLACK BOOTS: Buttocks cropping (lying on bed).
BROWN BOOTS: Asphyxiation by boot or stockinged foot.
COBALT-BLUE BOOTS: Penetration by female.
SCARLET BOOTS: Cross-dressing humiliation.
BLACK LACES: Punishment with a short whip.
GOLD LACES: Defecation on chest.
WHITE LACES: Collared like a dog.
WHITE RIBBONS ON TOP OF BOOTS: Male customer begins as the dominant figure and ends as the submissive party.
DOMINAS: Leather-clad women who specialized in whipping, humiliation, and other forms of punishment, and worked in lesbian night-clubs that admitted heterosexual couples and male clients.
FOHSES: Independent prostitutes who advertised in newspapers and magazines as manicurists or masseuses.
GRASSHOPPERS: Streetwalkers who performed oral sex in the Tiergarten.
GRAVELSTONES: Physically deformed women who worked in north Berlin.
MEDICINE GIRLS: Child prostitutes who were “prescribed” by pimps posing as physicians in phony pharmacies in west Berlin.
MUNZIS: Pregnant women who waited under lampposts on Münzstrasse.
RACEHORSES: Masochistic prostitutes who worked in Institutes for Foreign Language Instruction, where the schoolrooms were equipped with bondage equipment.
TAUENTZIEN GIRLS:Women wearing the latest fashions and hairstyles, often working in mother-daughter teams near the Kaiser Memorial Church.
TELEPHONE GIRLS: Child prostitutes, aged twelve to seventeen, who were made to resemble junior versions of theater or film starlets and were ordered by telephone.”

In ancient times women who worshipped the wine god Bacchus were said to enter into ecstatic frenzies in the wilderness, liberated from the restrictive clothes and repressive customs of their home life. How much more civilized we are now.
