Apparently, there are brothels in Second Life (that absurd online role playing game with the economy that's collapsing even quicker than the real world's). Apparently, a person of the male persuasion pays about 6 dollars (that's real dollars) for service. Erm, what service, exactly? The various news sources mentioning the silliness are silent on the matter. Apparently, one brothel owner makes $50,000 (real money) a year on it; probably on about 20% of the takings.
Yes, people are paying hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars for poorly-animated sex on an unreliable online service. You couldn't make this stuff up. It's actually more pathetic than those premium-rate sex lines advertised on dodgy satellite channels.
