More bang for your buck
We have dissected data from an international review site with profiles of 190,000 female prostitutes. The results show that gentlemen really do prefer blondes, who charge 11% more than brunettes. The scrawny look beloved of fashion magazines is more marketable than flab—but less so than a healthy weight. Prostitutes themselves behave like freelancers in other labour markets. They arrange tours and thanks to the internet, take bookings online, like gigging musicians.
