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 be more expensive in Reno than Chicago?
