The Week in Sex: QR Code tattoos and brothel co-ops

Gimmick? Technological innovation? Or the endgame of human objectification? Instead of tucking a 10-spot under a stripper’s G-string, you can now tip at the Legends Room via “strategically placed” temporary tattoos of QR codes. The Strip-adjacent Gentleman’s Club now accepts Bitcoin and its own tokens—which are traded as LGD on the Bittrex exchange—along with old-fashioned cash and credit.

Also, brothel owner Dennis Hof is offering his prostitutes a chance to get a little more skin in the game by investing in his next business venture. He’s seeking $2.5 million to buy a stake in Pahrump’s Chicken Ranch, and he has said his goal is to have the first employee-owned brothel in the world. Okay, but in order to break that mirror-glass ceiling, wouldn’t it be better if the women skipped the middleman and raised the money on their own?
