Dude sets up nude cleaning business

2012-02-24 11:20

Cape Town - A Cape Town accountant has set up a company offering naked and semi-naked services, according to a report on Friday.

The company, which markets itself through a website, was started last month by out-of-work accountant Paul Reid, 29, The Times newspaper reported.

After having to sell off virtually all of his belongings, including his clothes, to make ends meet, Reid came up with idea of offering services performed by naked or semi-naked household cleaners, cooks, handymen, computer nerds and accountants.

"It is not sexual; it is purely for entertainment purposes and obviously for the service," Reid told the daily newspaper.

"There is a third year law student who offers light legal advice and an accountant who could help you with your taxes."

He said most of the company's clients were men who preferred the cleaning services.

Two hours would cost R700, of which Reid took R150 and the worker R550.

He said he had 25 men and women on his payroll, some of whom work part-time and others who were also previously unemployed.

There were strict rules for staff and employees and it at the discretion of the client whether the jobs were performed semi-naked or naked, said Reid.

      innovation indeed. I'd recommend you guys checkout the website and service before commenting though. there are some kinky stuff these people do. with names like Diamond? This accountant is straight pimping. Keep up your hustle playa...!!

      Marion - 2012-02-24 15:42

      I once suggested to someone to start a topless car wash... male and female eye candy for the patrons... I reckon that could be very lucrative... cars being washed three times a day...

      Frank - 2012-02-24 16:11

      marion i was on the verge of doing just that but the wife wasn`t to pleased with the idea of me hanging out with topless woman all day.she said i`d be working overtime all week!

    As the say goes "sex sells"

      dirk.smit1 - 2012-02-24 12:48

      In this case, "Nudity Sells"

      Mike - 2012-02-24 13:51

      Let us hope they have a indemnity policy for medical conditions during service? "Dad, thank you for residing in Johannesburg! At your age of 80 I would not recommend their services! However, NHI number *********3031 is not operational yet!"

      Assis - 2012-02-25 21:02

      Sex sells, horny buys.

  • Aston - 2012-02-24 11:34

    You see how desperation can be a good thing, brilliant idea!

  • John Murray McKay - 2012-02-24 11:36

    Handyman? One miss swing with a hammer and his tollie will be gone!

  • looneylani - 2012-02-24 11:38

    At least someone is creating jobs!

  • Moss - 2012-02-24 11:38

    Imagine handyman fixing your naighbour's roof naked..... I think it is just another strategies to exploid unemployed people into sex trade.

      TSR01 - 2012-02-24 12:04

      R700 for a callout, just to wear less clothing? That's close on twice the fee of a standard callout. Tell you what, at that price, you do 1 week's work, you're set for the month! R5,500 in a week for 2 callouts per day with 5 day's of work. Sounds like exploiting the employed, not the other way around! :)

      Marni - 2012-02-24 12:07

      where did you lose you sense of humour? His employees do this for payment and they decide to do so through FREE WILL. At least the "umemployed people", as you call them, will be earning a respectable (though slightly weird) salary, instead of standing on the side of the road waiting for handouts.

  • Yolokazi Lethabo Langeni - 2012-02-24 11:38

      Sidima - 2012-02-24 15:37

      check out the website. you're probably right. why would i pay a bunch of girls to play adult nude games? they probably do "discretionary services" on the side.

      Natural - 2012-02-24 22:45

      It is so hurtful to read comments like this that is so untrue and comes from your thumb.

  • Squireforhire - 2012-02-24 12:56

    I can see this evolving into sex services.

      Natural - 2012-02-24 22:42

      No ,I am a professional and i will keep it that way a journalist already did a undercover call out ,and tried her luck with my staff and just got her naked dance nothing more.

    This business is not going to last very long, it undermines women and makes them look like sex objects.

      Phoenix - 2012-02-24 16:29

      *rolls eyes* oh please get a life.

      Natural - 2012-02-24 22:40

      Its a clothing optional service , so you hire a cleaner with clothes and it will not be your typical domestic worker it could be a model or rugby player

  • Kusleg - 2012-02-24 13:51

      Yes indeed free accounting advice , it can be cleaning expense / entertainment expense for the business.

  • Se-a Spencer Ikeremm - 2012-02-24 14:15

    I take it the cleaners are people who are active gym members? I wouldn't wanna see someone as fat as me half/fully naked cleaning the floor or whatever. And are they shaved? Are their a**es bleached? There's just so much room for error here. Lol.

      My family too , they like our terms and conditions "OUrStaff are for entertainment purposes and not sexual services. Our cleaning staff will not unblock toilets or drains , wash animals or perform any cleaning work that will leave them looking or feeling dirty and smelling undesirable! Soliciting prostitution is not allowed. Outside nude services is strictly prohibited."
