Less taxing: Madrid theater sells porn instead of tickets (Video)

An all-women theater group in Madrid, Spain was having problems selling tickets due to the high VAT charged on culture in the country.  They came up with a novel idea, in a much lower tax bracket.

It seems one of the areas most badly hit by the crisis and budget cuts in Spain is that of culture, and in this case, theater.  The ladies who run this theater company were finding it hard to sell tickets to their performances.  The VAT on theater tickets is that of a luxury item at a high 21 percent.  However, the VAT on porn magazines is a mere four percent, which makes one think it was men to set the standards.

Anyway, what they did was to print up a whole bunch of porn mags which are sold at the nearby magazine outlets.  People then show the magazine when attending the theater.  Now everyone is happy, and some are no doubt a little more excited than others...
