On the subject of whorehouses, 1543:

Melichior Ambach, editor of biblical, patristic & contemporary writings against whoring & adultery:

If we can have a "house of women" for single and married men to frequent without sin, let us also provide a "house of boys" (Bubenhaus) for our womenfolk, especially for those who are old and poor and have no husband to service them. Would whoring be any worse for the poor, needy female sex?"

- Ambach, 1543.
