Not close enough to the city centre? Their businesses taking a hit?

They want people to climb on top of these & vote on referendums from there?

Re: SVP urges referendum over Zurich sex stalls

I am always genuinely amazed that the SVP always, always, manages to think the impossible! I always have an opposite opinion to these people.

The sex stalls work in other countries, everyone is happy there, so why, oh why, does the SVP have to spoil everything?

We had a thread on EF describing how the street ladies were crapping in peoples gardens as their pimps wouldn't let them take the time to find a toilet. These stalls raise their dignity and give the street ladies more protection. Once the city of Zurich get the stalls they can ban prostitution from the streets, or will the SVP object to that as well?

It's called a wind-up.

It's what SVP are best at.

Re: SVP urges referendum over Zurich sex stalls

Well, looks like the SVP have got things in hand, and will be putting up stiff opposition.


I've also heard rumours that there's a big back passage connecting them all.


I haven't heard anything about the "sex stalls", tho'...

Oh great, another thread to discuss the morals of prostitution...and with the added benefit of the SVP thrown in for more spin. This could get interesting.

Now we only need to find a way to start a threaed covering all those topics plus brown sugar and salaries, all combined.

The ensuing meltdown would cause the EF to implode and form a black hole.

There was an old fart from Mirfield, who groaned a young man from Basel. When questioned he said, I fell outta bed and the resulting bump has knocked all sense of reason and proportionality out of me

Just in case you were serious... the stalls are like a Swiss car wash. You pick up the lady from nearby, drive in, do the business in relative comfort, drop the lady off and take the mess home with you. It protects the lady from the customer, but not from the pimp.

There are probably police cameras watching out for dangerous situations, so if anyone is murdered they have the car number plate and the driver on video.
