Sex workers have demonstrated how to have safe romps during the coronavirus pandemic in bizarre pictures.
The pair, who were fully clothed and wearing masks, were snapped at a protest outside Dusseldorf’s state Parliament in western Germany.
They brought along a bed and showed off several positions, with hand sanitiser nearby and a sign reading “red light on”.
Photographers and baffled members of the public gathered to watch it unfold.
Others arrived with signs saying “sell sex, hate sexism” and “sex work is real work”.
Sex work, legal in Germany but regulated, was banned in mid-March in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Protests earlier occurred in Hamburg and Berlin as the country eased lockdown restrictions but omitted brothels.
In Berlin, they were allowed to reopen this month – but customers are having to make do with erotic massages.
Visitors are required to fill in forms with their details and wear masks.
Sex worker Jana, 49, told The Local: “I prefer the sexual service, my clients do too.”

"If you don't like him, you send him back through the door. I'm not afraid at all – I’m just happy. Finally!"
In other cities, such as Dusseldorf, brothels remain closed.
Earlier this month, Daily Star Online revealed that Britain’s sex industry is still “far from normal” – as prostitutes slowly start to work the streets again.

Laura Watson, a spokeswoman for the English Collective of Prostitutes, said demand is not at the same level as it was before the virus.
She explained: “There are still clients out there – during lockdown that obviously decreased and it is not like it is anything near normal, but there is a demand out there.
“It’s women’s need for money that fuels the industry, women go into it for financial aid.”
Many prostitutes have had to return to work to pay rent and put food on the table despite risking the killer infection.

Hundreds of sex workers had taken their business online and used webcams during lockdown.
It was reported that just one-in-three prostitutes continued to meet up face to face.
