Geneva to get 'café fellatio' by end of year

Despite all the hoohah over Brexit THIS has got to be the Friday thread this week.

"The idea for the sex café has been brewing for several months, Bradley Charvet of the Geneva firm Facegirl told Geneva’s Le Matin newspaper recently.

Modelled on similar establishments in Thailand, the proposed Geneva café would add a new dimension to the sex trade in the city of the protestant reformer Calvin.

Put simply, the business model would see men ordering a coffee and using an iPad to select a prostitute they want to perform oral sex on them. They would then sit at the bar.

“In five or ten minutes, it’s all over,” Charvet explained to Le Matin."

I definitely object. Not to the idea, but to the sexist attitude of limiting it to men only being able to buy oral sex. How about it ladies? Would you like a lick/suck or two with your morning coffee? Might take a bit more than 5-10 minutes to be satisfied though. That would definitely hit their profit margins.

Would it make you happier if they hired good looking Boristas?

Re: Geneva to get 'café fellatio' by end of year

I wonder what is going on with Switzerland. Is this just a masked form of money laundering? Why would one approve the flourishing of brothels? Who finances these businesses? Who are the front people and who pulls the strings behind the curtains?

Is one brothel per 1000 population normal in Switzerland?

I am surprised that even here on EF, men's reaction to these attacks on women is to solve the emission problem.

So there will essentially be a row of fellas at the bar with their trousers "loosened"? Wowsers.

What's your problem? This is capitalism at it's best

There's a market and apparently a "demand" for such services...

Might as well forbid any kind of (shady) banking services..

Well that's around three and a half minutes of my morning wasted... Tell me he's taking the piss and is not a "serious" pop star. I see the oxymoron in that sentence... Like Donald Duck indeed!

That's why it's pronounced "fella-show"

He's been around for 15 years or so... and probably not entirely serious...

Sigh....

As there are thousands of them dotted around the country including in the darkest ditchwater village there is very clearly a great demand. See , wasn't hard to work out.

Attacks? Err what?

I'd imagine there is already an App for that, without prostitution. Or am just too ignorant of the straight world?

Re: Geneva to get 'café fellatio' by end of year

I'm not a "client" so I don't realize what happens usually but i feel bad for the girls who'll have to perform from 7am, under a bar, clients after clients for something like 20 francs.

It's 60 CHF according to the article. The guy said "in five minutes its all over" so if the shop manages to plan their resources well you could get to a pretty decent hourly rate, no?
