A NEW business in Georgia is offering single women who need household help the chance to hire “husbands” by the hour – but the company’s owner admitted yesterday that all some of his customers need is love.
“Our service is here to assist those women who need help with tough housekeeping tasks, such as for example minor repair works,” company owner Beso Mchedlishvili said.
But he said that many women were confused by the company’s name – A Husband for an Hour Limited – and were asking for something more.
Since going into business in the ex-Soviet republic two months ago, the number of calls from women seeking a more intimate hour has significantly exceeded the orders for the company’s actual services.
“So we have to explain to them that our guys are not male prostitutes,” Mchedlishvili said.
“They can help with repairing a leaking tap, but their job description says nothing about providing affection,” he added.
