Is this a front for prostitution? A sign of just how bad the economy really is? Or, is there a larger nudist population than I was aware of?

This certainly redefines the term “odd jobs” around the house.

Using tactics such as shockvertising and sexual appeal are two examples of how a business can employ specific publicity strategies to garner attention.
