Brothel offers discounts to cyclists

A Berlin brothel is doing its bit for the environment - by offering discounts to customers who arrive on bicycles.

"The recession has hit our industry hard," said Thomas Goetz, owner of the Maison d'envie brothel.

"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."

Customers who arrive on a bicycle or who can prove they took public transportation get a five euro (£4.30) discount from the usual 70-euro fee for a 45 minute session.

"We have around three to five new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount," he said, adding the green rebate has helped alleviate traffic and parking congestion in the neighbourhood.

I wonder if such a discount scheme could catch on over here?
Of course you would have to guard against fraud - drivers parking round the corner, and cycling round the block!
