There are important lessons to be gleaned from Eliot Spitzer’s shenanigans. Namely: how to effectively run a brothel for the well-to-do. Using cached pages from the now-defunct Emperors Club website, Josh Levin lays out a business plan in Slate.
- Keep out the riff-raff: 92% of the club’s clients were CEOs
- Peddle the best product: The ladies boasted detailed, degree-laden CVs
- Set fair prices: A three-diamond prostitute is less talented than a seven-diamond prostitute, but she’s also one-third the price
- Sell the whole woman: “Her lithe fashion model frame shows not the elegant meals she delectably creates to savor”
- Diversify your offerings: Aside from women, Emperors Club sells ad space, private yacht charters, and “authentic art” on its site
- When cupid strikes, sell: Escorts and clients in real romance can expect to fork over a “mutually agreed upon lump sum” to the matchmaking brothel
