Re: Zurich residents to vote on drive-in sex stalls

and now the sex stalls will open on 26th August. Helpfully the city has explained with diagrams how to have sex in your car, no bicycles are allowed!

As it's been set up with public money I hope they're duly going to pay tax on their earnings.

Poor old Zurich. First the Street parade and now this. Still, it's more fodder for TeleZuri - the programme of culture.

It has been suggested that potential clients who have no car go for a mobility subscription.
I don't have mobility (and no intention of ever visiting the place.), but I certainly wouldn't want to have to use a shared car that people previously had sex with a street-hooker in. That is just so...gross.
I wonder how long it takes before mobility updates their AUP....

No, no, as this would not be a public place as such.

Restricted dogging perhaps.

Very restricted if you've only got a mini; or is that getting too personal?

Re: Zurich residents to vote on drive-in sex stalls

That's disgusting. I mean using the mobility car for sex. Imagine the next renter. You better hope they clean up afterwards

Re: Zurich residents to vote on drive-in sex stalls

In the article it states the street walkers at Langgasse Zurich will not be allowed to solicit there after 26 August. The locals will be able to live a normal life again.

I had the impression that it had been banned long langstrasse some years ago already, which doesn't mean the police don't sometimes look away.
