Reno - Bruce Springsteen
She took off her stockings
Bruce Springsteen sings about the demand and supply of sex and the subsequent equilibrium prices of different acts in "Reno". Why might some activities result in a higher price than others? Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner in SuperFreakonomics provide some evidence that the price of vaginal sex with prostitutes in Chicago is about $80 and oral sex is $37. Why, if Springsteen can be believed, might sex more expensive in Reno than Chicago?
