Switzerland creates ‘sex boxes’ for drive-in sex

Workplace: The boxes in Zurich will allow prostitutes to conduct their business in more privacy

Switzerland has create an awesome idea to help keep their citizens employed.  Now those on the prowl for discreet sexual encounters, can go their nearest “sex box” aka drive-in, for sex!  THe sex boxes cost $1.5 million and are meant to promote the safety of prostitutes and regulate the sex industry.

The boxes are equipped with panic alarms  which can be activated if the clients or prostitutes feel in any danger.  Michael Herzig, director of social services  for sex workers in the city, said: “Prostitution is a business  basically…we cannot prohibit it, so we want to control  it in favour of the sex  workers and the population because if we do not control  it, organized  crime is taking over, and the pimps are taking over.”

Rules of engagement: Clients are shown clearly what acceptable behaviour is, including a ban on photography and more than one customer at a time

The sex workers have to register with a health  insurer and buy a ‘work ticket’ each night that they work. So far 283 permits have been issued.

Would drive-in sex boxes work in the United States?  Would this curb the need for “pimping” and “trafficking” in our local cities?
