BERLIN Part of Berlin's red-light scene is going green. One bordello, hoping to stave off falling demand in the economic crisis, has begun offering discounts to customers who pedal bicycles to the door. "It's very difficult to find parking around here, and this option is better for our environment," said Thomas Goetz, who owns the brothel Maison d'Envie, or House of Desire. Local residents in Prenzlauer Berg - a part of former East Berlin now home to scores of trendy boutiques, restaurants and clubs - had staunchly supported the Green party in recent elections and have welcomed the bordello's offer to emphasize the environment. The bordellos in the capital of Germany, where prostitution is legal, have seen business suffer with the global financial crisis. Patrons have become more frugal, and there are fewer potential customers coming to the city for business trips and conferences.

And what's the discount for showing up nude on a bike?....you know...ready to go?
If it’s green, you might want to take a pass on him, honey...
Will reusing condoms save the planet?
LOL, Friday afternoon laugh
Wonder if AlGore has a piece of this pie too!
Millions for tribute ... not a penny for those who really need it.
I thought they were giving discounts for guys who didn’t quite understand what was expected of them.
You know the west coast hasn’t eaten lunch yet don’t you?
Can I get an additional discount if I use a condom made out of hemp?
I have a better idea. Instead of the ho’s working in the brothels, they should ride the bikes. That way they could PEDAL THEIR ASS all over town.
Discount for leprechauns? What about someone with a huge fungus/
JMHO but green and brothel should never appear in the same sentence! :(
Simple PR: The brothel will more than make up for the discounts due to all the free advertising from the world media.
>>> “I thought they were giving discounts for guys who didnt quite understand what was expected of them.”
Whew - so it wasn’t just me! :o)
Apparently “riding the town bike” has a different meaning in Berlin.
