Elves and half-elves are common among the temple prostitutes of the Pleasure Salon of Calistria in the Ascendant Court district of Absalom.  Elves are otherwise relatively uncommon in Absalom, mostly consisting of adventurers or outcasts; more common are their half-elven descendants. The temple prostitutes are clean and well-educated, and offer their services on a sliding scale; they can develop a high social status in the city.
The edifice is constructed in the colonaded style of a classical Azlanti temple to match the architecture of Absalom rather than elven cities. Its exterior is covered with bas-relief sculptures of hedonistic humanoids, and it is rumored that the interior contains blasphemous sculptures of Calistria herself engaging in salacious activities with other deities. Although Calistria's priests play a significant role in the operations of the temple, the salon is managed by the ranking sacred prostitute, Dyrianna of House Avenstar.
Additionally, the temple supplies a unique wasp honey used by the city's mead brewers, as well as a public baths that has become a meeting-place for distrustful factions due to the requirement for nudity.
