Here's a a great resource for all my friends in the trade. Apparently they've really got things down to a science in Rio...

A government Web site for Brazil's prostitutes suggests they be prepared to perform fantasies and "offer specialties," among other tips, is going to be toned down, an official said Tuesday.

Prostitution is legal in Brazil and sex worker advocacy groups say the Labor Ministry Web site aims to promote the human rights of prostitutes. But critics say the site goes too far, and its contents have become fodder for Brazilian newspapers.

The site contains such tips as: "demonstrate an ability to perform erotic fantasies," "seduce with affectionate nicknames" and, in a nod to the globalized marketplace, "demonstrate a capacity to communicate in a foreign language."

"The information was created with the help of NGOs and the prostitutes themselves," said a labor ministry spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she wasn't authorized to discuss the topic.

So there you have it boys and girls. If you're looking for tips from the real pros, the Brazilian Government is apparently "the man" when it comes to keeping those tricks-a-turnin'.

Of course there's always Heidi.
