Three German business students have happened on a novel way to find bedmates.
A trio of young men at the University of Mannheim launched a free call boy service — with themselves as the call boys, naturally — aimed at young women.
The twist: The service purports to boost its clients' grades and champion feminist values, German news magazine Der Spiegel (linked article in English) reported.
Called Bib:Love, referring to the German word (bibliothek) for library, the service promises "good grades through good sex" on its posters around campus — the theory being that an active sex life will lower students' stress and simplify studying.
Founders Oskar, Christopher and Julius, as the three call themselves, hatched the plan while drinking together last fall.
So far, the group says it has received many more emails of curiosity and has serviced five clients.
Some women on campus were skeptical of the premise of Bib:Love, though, and said it seemed the men are just trying to find women with whom to have sex — not that there's necessarily anything wrong with that.
The service's first client said her experience was fun but that the service didn't seem particularly radical, and a student council member said she was skeptical of its claim to help women get better grades.
That hasn't stopped Oskar, Christopher and Julius from considering broadening the project to nearby towns.
