A physician turns his practice into a brothel. “Neil Benson, who shut his Coopers Beach practice in April last year, plans to call the new business venture Whalers.

He said he would hire ‘professional girls’ from outside the region and cater for locals and visiting tourists.

He admitted his plan was contentious, but said there had been ‘a lot of support from the men in the community’.

Dr Benson closed the medical centre in Coopers Beach, 350km (220 miles) north of Auckland, after a dispute with his local health authority over after-hours care.”
