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.

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....

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

The SVP is not really interested in the topic as such. They however want to set a precedent. The slightly more right-wing oriented Canton to pass laws to limit the freedom of the two cities Zürich and Winterthur.

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.
