(Newser) – A Berlin brothel is fighting world economic gloom with a special offer: a flat-rate, unlimited, all-access pass, Der Spiegel reports. For about $90, clients are free to get chummy with all the workers. Men can even bring their wives. “70 euros, that includes everything—ladies, drinks and food,” says a staff member.

The offer is, however, limited to off-peak hours—10am-4pm, or 10-5 on weekends. Thus far, the place hasn't seen big dividends. “Business is normal,” says a spokeswoman.
