Nevada brothel owner Bobbi Davis has been hit by the recession. Luckily, she has plans to double her market — she's going to hire male prostitutes.
See, some women do pay for sex. A divorced mother-of-four wrote in the London Times a while back that she pays "Justin" $400 an hour for sex (and company), because she'd rather not have the complications of a relationship and doesn't have the time or energy to pursue one-night stands.
In Japan, gigolo services also cater to women; but one company said that while women pay for their flings, they often go sex-free. Apparently cuddles are worth $40 an hour.
If the women do want sex, one bordello owner says the brothel model can never be profitable. To see why,
You might think that since it often takes longer for a woman to get turned on, there'd be more to make; but since there's only so much a woman would pay for the whole experience, there's little profit to be made. The owner said: "Seducing a woman and seducing a man in a brothel environment are different things completely. One can take a few minutes, the other can take hours. It wouldn't make money." In other words, he thinks women want a three course meal with attentive service (and low profit margins).
At a brothel or not, would you pay for sex?
