BERLIN, March 16 (UPI) -- A brothel in Berlin says it is trying to lure recession-wary customers by offering a flat rate for prostitutes with unlimited food and drinks.
The brothel said $90 can now purchase time with any of the establishment's women plus all the food and drinks a customer can consume, during off-peak times, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. weekends, Der Spiegel reported Monday.
"Seventy euros ($90), that includes everything -- ladies, drinks and food," a brothel employee said.
The brothel's bosses said that as a further measure to attract business, the establishment is now allowing men to bring along their wives to share in the paid-sex experience.
