 Berlin Brothel Beats Recession With Discount Offer to Cyclists

A brothel in Berlin, which is facing hard times due to recession, has come up with a novel way of earning its keep, by offering a discount to patrons who arrive on bicycles.

Thomas Goetz, owner of the Maison d'envie brothel, hopes the discount will attract customers, and will also help the environment.

"The recession has hit our industry hard," the Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"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," he said.

Goetz said customers who arrive on bicycle, or who can prove they took public transportation, get a 5-euro discount from the usual 70-euro fee for 45-minute sessions.

He said the environmentally friendly offer was working a charm.

"We have around 3-5 new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount," he stated.

Adding the green rebate has helped alleviate traffic and parking congestion in the neighbourhood.
