Bordello goes in search of brains

Amsterdam (AP) - The nation's fanciest bordello is trying to recruit prostitutes from the most prestigious university in Holland.

'Nice part-time job for nice women who like night life, luxury and high fashion,' reads the advertisement placed by Yab Yum men's club in the Leiden University newspaper's first edition of the academic year.

'There's a distinct demand for students among my clients,' said Yab Yum's manager, Theo Heuft, yesterday. 'Some of the businessmen who come here value ideas and good conversation as much as anything else.'

Although Leiden's alumni include Einstein and Voltaire, intelligence is apparently not an attribute required by Yab Yum employees.
