Five years after they were first built, the Zurich Govt has hailed their decision to create legal ‘sex booths’ where customers take their cars and ‘drive-in’ to meet prostitutes for sex a ‘resounding success’ in Switzerland.
Zurich government spokeswoman Nadeen Schuster told USA Today the sex booths which look like garages have been quite ‘effective in preventing violence against sex workers and human trafficking’. Schuster made this known on Sunday, as they celebrated their fifth anniversary.
In 2012, 52 per cent of Zurich citizens voted in favour of the local government spending $2million (£1,557,020) on ‘sex boxes’. Each year after they were installed, the government also spends $800,000 (£623,000) for maintenance. These expenses go into security and other on-site social services just as the sex workers are required to pay taxes, have regular health checks and are healthier overall, according to the officials.
Council officials believe that the sex booths have lowered the number of violent attacks on sex workers as well as cut down on illegal trafficking of prostitutes.
