    Next step

    Remembering that man who was caught getting naughty with his bicycle in a hotel room, maybe next step for this brothel will be to offer a "private space" for cyclists too fond of their bikes...

    WTF?

    Errr... What?

    I'd ask what the IT angle on this story is if it wasn't pointless.

    Still, five points for LOL.

    My wife is supporting this initiative

    Because if she don'y start doing the business soon I'm off to buy a bike.

    Funny how the credit crunch can affect the availability of something that was free before you got married.

    Really?

    So in a week, more than 21 people found themselves saying, "You know, I would love to visit a brothel but I'm not paying more than €65 for it... Oh look. A discount!"

    Mine's the one with €5 euros and a bus ticket in the pocket.

    Was that here?

    Where I read about an 'all inclusive' brothel in Germany? I think it was around €120 for an 'all you can eat' brothelfest...

    ...and yes, 'all' includes drinks and lady company.

    Thumbs up for the Germans (nutch nutch, know what I mean?)

    Public transport?

    They run buses (or subways) right to the door? Methinks I need to move to Germany.

    They do have a 15 minute 30 € or 25 € if you come on a bike/bus (nudge nudge). That would suit me as i don't believe in wasting time.

    Run the site through google translate and the second last extras option looks interesting, though best not mention the war.

    err

    70 euros a pop? What if you don't pop - do they put the bill on hold until you do ? Just exercise a bit of restraint and tell them you'll see them again tomorrow for the "finale"... Rinse, repeat etc.
