A brothel in Austria has become a temporary homeless shelter.
Peter Laskaris, owner of Vienna's Red Rooms Laufhaus, is offering up a free bed, a hot shower and a meal to ten people every night.
"We are not really doing much business in the current cold weather anyway and it is the school holidays - a lot of people are off away with their families," he said.
"Lots of our rooms are empty and it seemed a shame not to use them for a good cause. In these cold temperatures nobody should be left out on the streets."
Laskaris added that he is currently in talks with other brothels to do the same as temperatures in the city reach as low as -20 degrees.I WONDER IF HIS REGULAR PATRONS LIKE THE IDEA OF USING A ROOM FOR INTIMATE RELATIONS THAT HAD BEEN USED BY A HOMELESS THE DAY BEFORE?
