Is it a sign of the times or simply refreshing openness that The High Flyer's Handbook, 'the definitive guide for today's business travellers', includes a chapter on 'After-hours Fun' - discussing everything from HIV prevention to likely vice hotspots.
The book's author, Marion Cotter, says that 10 years ago no publisher would have touched a book aimed at a business market that contained such lewd information. 'The massive growth in business travel has given a fillip to the international sex trade,' which, combined with the alarming rise in HIV infection, she says, has now made it an essential part of any business-traveller's guide.
Updated versions will see the chapter expanded. Cotter says people 'can't wait to leaf through those pages. Even nice men want to read about these things.'
