TIME - It looks like police in Zurich are subscribing to the “if you can’t beat them, build them little huts to do the nasty in” theory of prostitution control. Only in Europe. Prostitution has become such a problem in Switzerland that Zurich officials have made proposals to add “sex boxes” to the city. The idea itself is adopted from German cities like Essen and Cologne, and will be a way for prostitution to continue on behind closed, uh, doors. The boxes will serve as quickie drive-throughs, so-to-speak, and will free up city streets from unsightly acts that haunt Zurich residents whose homes overlook the city’s red light district. “They get up to all sorts in broad daylight – and we’re sick to death of looking at it,” one resident told the U.K.’s Metro. (Silvio Berlusconi and the Politics of Sex) From the looks of things, the boxes are big enough to conceal vehicles while prostitutes and clients handle business, away from the public eye. This somewhat laissez faire approach to Swiss sex industry control even comes an official police endorsement: “We can’t get rid of prostitution, so have to learn how to control it,” Police spokesman Reto Casanova said.
Listen I love America. I really do. But it seems like every day some other country is busting out some awesome invention or law that takes a shit all over us. Take for example these drive through sex boxes. Genius! I mean if there is one thing I never understood it’s why we waste so much time trying to bust prostitutes? Like people make a transaction, get a service, then go their separate ways. Sounds like business to me. How about just setting up sex boxes in some corner of town where they can complete all their fuck transactions in peace? That would get them all out of the streets and over to the sex boxes. Then if you ever needed to find one you’d know the first place to look. Not to mention it’s just a great idea for clientele in general. It will be just like cruising over to the 24 hour Mcdonalds at 4 in the morning except instead of Mcnuggets you get your dick sucked.
