The owner of a maid service in conservative Jefferson Parish outside New Orleans is cleaning up by cleaning up nude. Known simply as “Belle,” the entrepreneur about a year ago converted her company, Got It Maid, into a clothing optional service: clients can choose among an assortment of lingerie-bedecked maids who will do housework topless or fully nude. Clients may also pick among an array of fantasy outfits including French Maid and Daisy Duke.
Got It Made charges hooker rates — starting at $120 for a house cleaning — but has a hands-off, no-touching policy. “Belle” tells New Orleans TV station WGNO her service is thriving. Got It Maid operates in the New Orleans metro area including the Northshore and Hammond; service is also available in Baton Rouge. Johns, er, clients can choose from a gallery of comely cleaners at the company’s website.
