The prostitution business in Germany has been hit hard by the worldwide economic downturn, so one brothel has come up with a novel promotion that's also good for the environment.
Maison d'envie in Berlin is offering a $7 discount off its usual $100 fee to customers who arrive on bicycle.
"Obviously we hope that the discount will attract more people," said brothel owner Thomas Goetz. "It’s good for business, it’s good for the environment — and it’s good for the girls."
"We have around 3-5 new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount."
Prostitution is legal in Germany and 400,000 prostitutes have formally registered since 2002.
