http://meretrix.com/

I did a Search and found this thread from a couple of months ago somewhat relevant:

That's pretty funny. From the opening statement of the CEO, I kept thinking "You can't be serious!" and got a fine chuckle at the end when I saw that they weren't.

Well, there's a number of things, but I guess one that pertains to the title is that "meretrix" is a prostitute.

A long time ago the New Yorker had a recurrent feature
