When one is employed by De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), the central bank of the Netherlands, a number of issues unique to the geography of the job may arise that a counterpart at, say, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York would never have to deal with. William Dudley, for instance, knows that he can absolutely cannot work as a prostitute on nights and weekends. Prostitution is illegal in New York and so the matter would just never come up; taking the question to HR to clarify the policy would be unnecessary. In the Netherlands, though, it's a bit more of a gray area. The practice is cool with law enforcement and so one might be forgiven for thinking that what he or she did on her own time (Nazi-themed dominatrix prostitution) was his or her own business. Presumably that was Conchita van der Waal's thinking, anyway. And yet!

A top official working at the Dutch Central Bank has been fired after her secret double life as a Nazi-themed dominatrix prostitute was uncovered. The 46-year-old part-time prostitute worked at the Dutch Bank who are responsible for regulating the financial services industry in the Netherlands for eight years. However, for the past six years, the woman, known only by her 'professional' name Conchita van der Waal offered a range of sexual services at a rate of €450 an hour asking for requests that are 'the kinkier the better'. Dutch Central Bank officials fired their employee, whose real name has not been released, after they were alerted to her double life...After the Dutch magazine broke the story, the bank confirmed that it had fired the woman over 'integrity issues'. Prostitution in Holland is legal although workers at the Dutch Central Bank are not allowed to engage in any activities which could bring the institution into disrepute such as 'indecent behaviour'.

Let this be a lesson to you all.
