Dutch prostitutes specialize in first time sexual experiences for geeks
Capitalism is everything people feared Communism would be: an hyper-powerful global ideology that completely upends all moral structures, traditions, and power arrangements with which it collides. Fortunately, it has some beneficial side-effects, one of which is that the entrepreneurial spirit is great at finding unsatisfied needs, and, provided that the unsatisfied have enough money, coming up with a way to satisfy those needs, however abstruse or specialized. (The fact that capitalism is equally good at creating unsatisfied needs is a topic for another post.)
Which brings us to today's article from The Register, which I think was probably custom-tailored to catch my attention:
(HT: Progressive Gold) Now what centrally directed economy could plan for catering to such a need? It's stuff like this that doomed Communism. Reagan had nothing to do with it.
God alone knows it's going to be difficult, but we promise we will keep an absolutely straight face as we report that Dutch escort agency Society Service has set up a special service for geek virgins looking for that elusive first sexual encounter.
Sociology student Zoe Vialet set up the agency last year, Ananova reports, and admits she's had "a lot of demand from virgins" - most of them from the IT sector. She explained to De Telegraaf: "They are very sweet but are afraid of seeking contact with other people. They mean it very well but are very scared."Zoe has a crack team of five girls "specially trained" to pop geeks' cherries.
