An Austrian brothel is offering a summer special that competitors will find hard to match—free sex. Its owner says it's his way of protesting a tax squeeze. "Effective immediately: Free Entrance! Free Drinks! Free Sex!" the Pascha bordello writes on its website. The Oesterreich daily quotes owner Hermann Mueller as saying he will pay the women working for him to make up for the money they would normally get from clients. "The problem is, the tax office wants more and more, and they are not cracking down on illegal street and apartment prostitution," Mueller tells the Local, adding that he's tired of being the "tax man's pimp."

Prostitution in Austria is legal and regulated. Mueller, who runs other brothels in Germany and Austria, says he is pushing back against what he says is unfair taxation of more than $5 million in the past decade. A woman answering the telephone at the establishment confirmed the offer today. (Nevada brothels, meanwhile, are facing "survival of the freakiest.)
