So Luxurious: Switzerland's Drive-In Prostitute Sex Boxes
I came for an oil-change. *wink*
Because the sex boxes they installed in 2010 were too drab, the city of Zurich has installed new sex boxes for people to have sex with prostitutes in, without the fear of children on family road trips watching from the back of their parents' station wagon. Mommy? I don't want to play 'I Spy' anymore.
With an estimated annual turnover of around 3.5 billion Swiss francs ($3.79 billion), prostitution has been legal in Switzerland since 1942, with sex workers in Zurich required to have a special permit, health insurance and pay tax.
The sex boxes, which echo similar drive-in systems in the Netherlands and Germany, are being touted as a way to get large numbers of prostitutes and their clients off Switzerland's otherwise pristine streets.
Complete with panic buttons in each shed, showers, a laundry room and on-site health workers, supporters say the system offers relative security to sex workers and privacy to their clients, while reducing the disturbance to locals.
I can see it now. *Picks up prostitute, parks in wooden stall, opens glove compartment to reveal a bottle of sparkling grape juice on ice* What do you say you and I get a little...romantic? "Sparking grape juice, really -- not even champagne?" Oh I'm sorry, I almost forgot you're a roadside prostitute and this isn't our wedding anniversary. Jesus, I'm not trying to get a DUI, lady.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots of the deluxe accommodations.
Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who agrees if you're going to pick up a prostitute and have sex on the road, you should at least have the decency to invest in a camper. Nobody should ever have sex in a Smart Car.
