Hookers in Berlin offer discount to cyclists
As if you need another reason to become an environmentalist the Maison d'Envie brothel in Berlin is offering a seven percent discount to its customers who arrive by bicycle.
And the gimmick is working too! Brothel owner Thomas Goetz says that the incentive draws in an extra three to five clients per day.
The discount is not only open to cyclists but to any other customer who can prove that they arrived by public transit.
"The recession has hit our industry hard," Goetz told Reuters. "Obviously we hope that the discount will attract more people. It's good for business, it's good for the environment – and it's good for the girls."
