Switzerland Starts Sex Drive-In

Waiting for customersHard to imagine that stuffy Switzerland, land of conservative bankers, would launch such a progressive project as a sex drive-in, but it’s an effort to ghettoize prostitution reports Reuters:

Greeted by a press pack rather than prostitutes, the first customer to roll up to Switzerland’s sex drive-in on opening night took one lap of the facility before making a hasty exit.

The second car, a family vehicle driven by a man in sunglasses under cloudy evening skies, broke down and needed jump starting in front of a host of photographers, sniggering into their cameras.

Zurich authorities had said they expected a modest start to the country’s first so-called “sex boxes”, a row of drive-in wooden garages on a looping track where clients in cars can visit prostitutes, shielded from prying eyes and security cameras.

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…

      “Kräuter-Säckli” was the most popular souvenir, for a short while at least.

          Yeah, good times, I remember people from all over Europe flocking there working as harvest helpers, trimming and packaging. All you needed was a good pair of scissors, the rest is sort of hazy.

      Is Pot not still legal in Swiss? The changed their laws to allow each person 4 plants, and plants worth of weed in their possession. Have they changed it back?

    I swear I had this business idea six months ago.

    In Austin Texas you see prostitutes giving BJ’s in random parking lots downtown. My idea was to build a “car wash” with garage doors on each end of the stall. Entry would cost like five dollars. Guaranteed no cameras. Security on site. Clean and safe. Out of public view. Everybody wins!

    so, I’m pissed. These savages and their NIMBY misogyny have ruined my drunken walks home. They couched all this crap as a way to combat Pimps and sex-trafficking. Yet, there’s not one less pimp in CH. Instead of controlling work permits, providing longer work permits to keep the trafficking down, they just did what they tried to do with the junkies and moved it all to one little spot, as opposed to the 3 streets it was on (Langstr, Sihlqui & the one by the altstadt). Instead of the having the police provide security to the workers, they just ignore the areas where the hookers are, ensuring that Pimps will also be avoided by the police. All this so a few bankers can beat up some hookers with impunity. Regardless of if it’s in a box or in an alley, these girls aren’t going to law enforcement to ensure their rights and all these self-righteous women’s liberation fakes are complicit. The girls are worked on a circuit using 3 month guest-worker visas, moving from St. Gallen, to Zurich, to Olten, to Basel, to Bern, to Lausaune, to Geneva, then off to Tessin & Lugano, until they get sent back to where they came from. They are ripped-off on week long rents of crap-hole apartments that the pimps (and their mini-mafias) make money off, along with their cut of the earnings. This also has the undesirable effect of the City getting its cut as the girls “rent” the boxes. Just fucking levy a tax already and don’t pretend it’s for their benefit. But … it’s still early, we’ll see if my rage is justified in a year or two.
