Zurich Considering Drive-In Sex Stalls, Making Prostitution More Convenient For Everybody
Well, residents of Zurich, Switzerland, may soon have a solution to this common problem. Back on September 14, the city parliament voted in favor of a proposal to erect a new publicly funded prostitution facility outfitted with what they are calling “performance stalls.” Basically, these are drive-in sex rooms that allow customers to be quickly and conveniently “serviced” in (or on, I suppose) their own automobiles.
In addition to these sex stalls, the new prostitution facility would include a variety of amenities and services for the McHookers, such as an on-site counseling office.
As you might imagine, there has been a great deal of opposition to this plan to build a modern drive-in whore house. However, critics aren’t really opposed to the facility on moral grounds. For the most part, they’re fine with people buying and selling sexual favors.
What they don’t like is the “socialist” idea of using public money ($2.8 million) to finance the private economic endeavors of sexual entrepreneurs. As councilor Ruth Anhorn explains, “It is about the oldest profession in society. The taxpayer should not co-finance a bordello.”
Opponents have succeeded in calling a referendum on the issue. So now taxpayers themselves will get to decide if they want to spend their money on a public drive-in sex facility.
How would you vote?
