A bordello in Austria is offering customers a chance to get busy in exchange for getting the jab.

Or as some news outlets described it, vaccines with benefits.

The Vienna brothel is reportedly offering patrons a free session with a lady of their choosing in its “sauna club” if they are willing to get the COVID-19 vaccine shot at a clinic onsite in an incentive program that will run every Monday through the end of November from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. local time, according to the Daily Mail.

“Due to the pandemic, we have registered a 50 per cent decrease [in clients], with this initiative we hope that the number of customers will rise again,” the venue known as Funpalast noted.

Austria is reportedly facing a wave of infections, and the country is implementing what amounts to a vaccine passport rule called 2G which will be enforced by 800 cops.

The establishment’s manager added that “Since the 2G rule has been in place, there has been a real rush to get vaccinated. We have had a lot of people come in today to get vaccinated,” according to the Daily Mail.

“Guess a spoonful of ‘sugar’ really does make the medicine go down,” the New York Post quipped, perhaps suggesting that vaccinees can be more motivated by something other than, say, a free donut. “Think of it as a sexy nurse role-playing scenario but with actual medical care.”

The brothel is celebrating diversity as well. “Boys as young as 14 are reportedly allowed to use the clinic, provided they are accompanied by an adult. Women are also being encouraged to visit the brothel for the vaccine, to comply with Austria equality laws,” the Daily Mail added.

According to a translation in the above video, the Funpalast manager also claimed that “Many men, very many men with a migration background, virtually refuse vaccination or don’t even know that you can be vaccinated. And since we are actually reaching this target group, we decided to set up a vaccination ‘street’ here.”

One of the establishment’s employees similarly said that “I think it’s a very good idea to have a vaccination ‘street’ in the Funpalast because the name…suggests ‘fun palace,’ and that suggests going back to normal for a bit. And it’s a great idea that it is being offered for women, children, and, of course, men.”

Austria has one of the lowest vaccination rates in Europe at about 65 percent. Austrians, however, are supposedly flocking to get the shot, one way or another, because of the 2G requirement to show the passport as a condition of entry into bars, restaurants, or any public venue with 25 or more people. The restrictions are being implemented over a four-week transition period.

“Infections are rising sharply in Austria, with 56,561 new cases recorded since Tuesday, a 66 per cent increase on the previous week’s figure,” The Local reported this week.

Twitter is mostly irreverently reacting to this story. Here is just a sample:
