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.
