On the Job

A brothel owner at Wuppertal in Germany is offering people on unemployment benefit cut-price sex.

Denise Tausch, 28, said she originally came up with the idea because so many people in the area were now out of work that they were failing to find enough clients.

But she added that many visitors who were taking advantage of the offer for a half hour at 25 pounds instead of 40 pounds had said it made them feel good about themselves, and that encouraged them to start looking again for work with renewed vigour.

She said: "We obviously hope that visitors will come more often, (sic) but we also want to do something for the community in which we live where many people are out of work and depressed.

"Some of those that take up the offer just want the chance to talk to a woman, it's not even always about sex. Sometimes they just want company and closeness. We have had a lot of reaction."

She added however that although she had been approached by students groups and an OAP Association to offer similar discounts she had so far declined.

She said: "If I make it too cheap it becomes too expensive for my regular clients and that's not fair."

The plan has also been welcomed by the girls working at the Lust Oasis brothel where they get paid the same amount regardless of whether the client is on benefits or not. The shortfall in the payment is written off by the brothel itself.
