Eco-friendly brothel

A brothel in Germany is using an interesting way to entice clients to its doors: discounts for those who bike it. According to a Reuters report, Thomas Goetz, owner of the Maison d’envie brothel in Berlin, said the recession has hit his industry hard. A discount for bike riders has lured customers and reduced environmental impacts, he says, and it’s also helped reduce traffic and parking congestion in the area. Those who ride their bikes or take public transportation to the brothel get $7 off the usual $100 fee for a 45-minute session.
