Practical approach to the oldest profession

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...d-2330219.html

Zürich's plan for Little Amsterdam.
I have to say, I respect the 'It's not going away, let's deal with it' approach.

Not surprised. It sounds like a variety of plans my husband's described to me to deal with various groups in the city. Curious how well it'll work.

Re: Practical approach to the oldest profession

Wow...very modern. I wonder if "meticulously organised compound" isn't just a fancy description for a mega-brothel. If it isn't a brothel then I wonder how they plan to keep sanitary conditions.

Re: Practical approach to the oldest profession

Switzerland is very strange. In some ways it's like being in the 1850s, in others like being in the 1970s, and in still others, like being in the not too distant future. Will the UK ever catch up, or will they be sucked down the Daily Mail rabbit hole of fear and conservatism.

Re: Practical approach to the oldest profession

we have these ion Belgium also.
The drive through ones seem very dangerous as the attention of the drivers is well not on the road.

Also the hooker complex in Antwerp is really new, cleaner and safer than any other part of the city....making it a bit of a tourist attraction at night.

Many sexshops, kebabs, and nightclubs benefit from this also

Re: Practical approach to the oldest profession

I just wonder whether it will work because for some punters, the attraction is the seediness and "anarchy" of traditional street prostitution. Plus, I wish the government would take a definite stance on women using protection, it's sad to read about young women offering bareback sex for 50 francs.

It will never catch up, so long as the Daily Mail and its self-righteous readership trumpet and guff such nonsense as this

Good God, at least the NotW never pretended to be anything other than the gutter press. We just chose to avert our eyes when gutter became sewer.

I love me a good Kebab after a quickie at the local drive-in.

Re: Practical approach to the oldest profession

In all fairness, its a profession. And its not going away.
And the people in this profession deserve conditions that allow them to work without having to facing problems.
The idea, in principle, seems good.
What remains to be seen is how this is going to work.
