Pick 'n Park - pay-as-u-go sex
21 Juillet 2011
The Swiss are quite progressive when it comes to catering for its people's needs - just ask those who frequent Zurich's red-light district.
Unfortunately there are those were would rather not witness in-car shenanigans - nearby residents and pedestrians, for instance.
In a bid to provide a safe, private environment for "parking up" the Swiss authorities are to erect drive-in sex boxes where couple (threesomes, foursomes?) could park and complete their tryst without bothering bypassers.
People whose homes overlook the red-light district have sent many complaints prompting Zurich police chief Daniel Leupi to propose the idea of building "sex boxes" - which are already in use in Germany.
Basically, they're parking slots with metal fencing on three sides.
Police spokesman Reto Casanova (really) said: "We can't get rid of prostitution so have to learn how to control it."
The aptly-named spokesman didn’t mention some obvious flaws, such as the implication that you're getting up to lewd acts if you're using the bay. You might as well send up a flare announcing you're about to get it on.
