The Times They Are A Changin'


Sometimes I find a news story that lives up to my header; It's A Sick World And I'm A Happy Man.

A brothel in Berlin, Germany, where prostitution is legal, has become the first of its kind to offer special deals to virgins and first time brothel customers. Special prostitutes are given "sensitivity training" in order to delicately transition these first timers in the art of lust for hire.

It brings a tear to my eye and warms me to the bottom of my crusty old heart to see that we are truly becoming a kinder gentler society. As Tiny Tim would say, if he were alive today, " God Bless Us, Every One!"

Sensitivity training? Sounds like they take their job very seriously.

The Phoenix said...

Nice to know whores are making sure to be more sensitive to their clients' needs. Who said customer service is dead?

angel, jr. said...

I once saw a sign in a cosmetic parlor advertising that they could restore virginity.
I was interested, but too weirded out to go inside and asked how they would do this.

Bruce said...

There is a God afterall...

Shay said...

Oh that IS very sweet!! ^_^

If I were a tender young virginal man I would chose that brothel over a more rough one for sure!


ooh... tender young virginal men *drool*

Catch said...

Im sure tender young virginal men dont care if its rough or tender....they just be happy to be gettin laid! lol

Keshi said...

Special for some very special ppl ha? lol!

Keshi.

:P fuzzbox said...

metal mark: That is a special thing in this day and age. Pride in a job done well.

phoenix: Beats a call desk any day.

angel, jr: That is curious.

bruce: And he has a sense of humor.

:P fuzzbox said...

shay: Unless he was a 'rough boy'. :)

catch: But at least they get a deal. First timer frugality has it's virtues, I suppose.

keshi: Special is as special does. :)

Michael said...

I saw this story a short time ago and thought, "I should send Fuzz this link."
You beat me to it. But in a sensitive way... ;)
Very interesting story.

I always wondered if women went to brothels. Like would a woman stop by and get a quick orgasm in the morning? I think this is a service that should be provided. That sounds a little slutty, doesn't it? Oops. ;)

ozymandiaz said...

Yea, I'm just waiting till they start offering "fequent flyer miles", if ya know what i mean...

Curare_Z said...

I read this article too. The part that worried me is that most of the virginal men are 40 or older. I think they need to try and market to the younger crowd too. I mean, that way you get more repeat customers. :-)

:P fuzzbox said...

michael: The story virtually screams my name doesn't it.

whoami: I have a good idea for a name for that establishment if one gets opened, 'The Morning Lick'. Kinda catchy huh.

ozy: I know what you mean.

curare: If they get their first taste at age forty believe you me. They will be repeat after repeat customers.

Dr. Cissa Fireheart said...

Well let's face it, I am sure many people go to professionals if they are adult age and still are virgins. I think it's a good idea!

Green Eyes said...

Awwww, that's so sweet!

Whoami and Fuzz, where is this place? You know, for research, and all, I'd like to check it out firsthand! *wink

:P fuzzbox said...

cissa: It's an idea who's time has come.

green eyes: Sadly I know of no such establishment. :(

Mimi said...

The women probably love it since its such a quick job ;)

guerrilla blogger said...

just when i'm about to lose faith in humanity, something like this comes along....that is beautiful...

:P fuzzbox said...

mimi: That is a scary good comment.

gb: It touched me. I am still a little choked up over it.

dragonflyfilly said...

glad you like the sign, (it is kind of my "signature", and has been for about the last 20 years or so)

...yes, indeed! the times they are a changin' - for the better we hope!

This post of yours makes me chuckle...

Jim said...

I read that article -- if you're a 40 year old guy and your need "instructions" perhaps the prostitute should charge extra instead of giving you a "special deal"

:P fuzzbox said...

filly: It makes a great user pic.

jim: You're a hard man. But so are they.

Johnny Wadd said...

I'll bet that sets em up for some good returning customer loyalty.

starbender said...

Tiny Tim didn't really die, silly!
He moved 2 "A brothel in Berlin, Germany'

2 me, that sign looks like it says, 'Sewer Pussy'
:o

Ranea said...

I am with Shay, I lose my train of thought after thr thought of young virginal men.:D

:P fuzzbox said...

johnny wadd: It's putting the service back into the service industry.

starbender: Phunny.

ranea: :D

Keshi said...

**Tiny Tim didn't really die, silly!

lol haha!

Keshi.

Perplexio said...

Now that's what I call a customer service model that other companies in other industries should also adopt.

Although, I think I would pass if anyone from the cutlery industry offered me a "happy ending."

the weirdgirl said...

Hadn't you heard that hookers were just social workers in disguise?

:P fuzzbox said...

keshi: :) It was phunny.

perplexio: Ain't that the truth.

weirdgirl: It is social.
