Antenna Audio, Inc./Getty Images(AUCKLAND, New Zealand) — Officials in Auckland, New Zealand, are crying foul at the city’s prostitutes who, it’s claimed, are bending road signs out of shape by advertising their wares with al fresco pole-dancing demos.

More than 40 poles have been damaged in the shady area known as Hunter’s Corner at significant cost to the city, the U.K. Telegraph reports.

“Prostitutes use these street sign poles as dancing poles,” said Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board member Donna Lee.  “The poles are part of their soliciting equipment and they often snap them.  Some of the prostitutes are big, strong people.”
