XYYZ fights Toronto's tax on sex

    Toronto-based advisory for guys to lobby City Hall for creation of Booty

    TORONTO, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - According to XYYZ.ca, Toronto's top advisory for
guys, the city of Toronto is making vast sums of money from the sex lives of
its inhabitants - what it has dubbed a boldfaced Booty Tax.

    Have you paid the Booty Tax?

    If you've ever gotten a parking ticket while answering a late night booty
call, then you've paid the City a Booty Tax. XYYZ asks you to join in the
fight against this tax. Support the creation of the Booty Pass, a $10
overnight parking permit that can be bought online to eliminate the risk of
those booty call parking tickets.
    Fight the injustice! Visit www.bootypass.ca. Every download of the pass
is a vote in support of the creation of the Booty Pass. In March, XYYZ will
present the vote tally to City Hall along with a petition to have the Booty
Pass officially sanctioned.
    "We believe this a win-win situation," says XYYZ Executive Editor,
Russell Smith, "The city will get incremental parking revenue, while guys in
Toronto get protection against the risk of a parking ticket."

    According to an XYYZ survey of its members:

    -   49% have gotten one of these tickets; those who received tickets got
        an average of 1 ticket per month.

    -   Close to 40% of female respondents said they thought the guy should
        cover the cost of any overnight parking tickets they get.

    -   83% of respondents supported the creation of a Booty Pass; a
        temporary $10 parking pass that can be purchased online and allows
        the buyer to park overnight.
