A recession-hit German brothel has come up with a novel way of generating trade and simultaneously saving the planet: Discount shags for cyclists.

Those arriving on pedal-powered transportation at Berlin's "Maison d'envie" bawdy house will get €5 off the normal price of €70 a pop for 45 minutes. Those who don't want to tire themselves out before getting their rocks off can enjoy the same wallet-friendly deal if they arrive by public transport.

Owner Thomas Goetz said: "The recession has hit our industry hard. It's good for business, it's good for the environment - and it's good for the girls."

And according to the Telegraph, it's working, too. Goetz added: "We have around 3-5 new customers coming in daily to take advantage of the discount." ®
