So where do the illegally trafficked women work? Or are they all sold on to other countries? I think not, they work here in small one appartment brothels. If they worked in "official" brothels their permits would be checked and they would soon be arrested and deported.
I guess many of the illegal women also work the streets where it's pretty difficult for the authorities to keep track.

I noticed last evening that the tram stop at Markthalle, Basel has an ad for a brothel on its main advertising hoarding (where you'd normally see ads for Coop and Mediamarkt).

The interesting thing is that it has no mention of what kind of business it is, just a website address and a picture (admittedly suggestive) of a woman eating honey. It's certainly not clear that it's a brothel (I knew the brothel name from elsewhere... )
What I don't understand is that there are so many brothels, and they are literaly everywhere, even in the good areas. Yet you cannot find a semi-decent strip club that offers a bit of innocent fun and entertainment with clear boundaries that I would feel comfortable taking my GF into, and that isn't somehow a seedy front end for a brothel.

You would take your GF into a strip joint?

Hmmm...

Why not? I already have, and I've been in places where up to half the clients were female.

Try these two, a friend reccommended them:

Doll House: http://www.doll-house.ch/

Kings Club http://www.kingsclub.ch/

Apparently they are more upmarket types, no funny business. You'll have top check and report back though.

Re: Swisscom no erotik!

Yeah, I don't see a problem with that either, and I'm female. I personally wouldn't want to go in, as I would feel horrible and fat and ugly comparatively, but why not otherwise? Some couples even *gasp* watch porn together!

To be fair I don't think i've seen you justiify most of what you say on the forum. However, your comical misuse of the rolleyes smiley never fails to entertain.

Well I'm glad you find it amusing , your observation is nonetheless quite correct, what I speak is of utmost certainty and requires no justification and is undermined by no opposing opinion... <-- (is this a better use?)

Didn't mean to ruffle anybody's feathers here, and by no means was I trying to preach how to entertain girlfriends... was just stating my opinon which I am perfectly entitled to. If you disagree then that's your choice and I'm not gonna ask you to create a thread about that! Sheesh!

Never said he did...
But that doesn't mean I can't question the rational behind his statement.

Anyways, I'm outta here before someone else joins this debate...
Seems going to a strip club is really close to people's hearts around here! I would also like to point out that my original "questioning of rational behind his statement" was said in jest and no intention of judgement was meant and hence the use of "", which I thought signified sarcasm or "don't take it too seriously" however this was clearly missed. Nevermind...

Sarcasm is generally signified by this smiley.

Frustration or disagreement with someone or something by this smiley.

And too much caffeine by this one.

Could just be a honey tasting club for women with temperatures.

In France, Germany, Britain, and I think almost all other EU countries, you do not open a newspaper (NOT a sexy magazine) and be confronted with adverts for prostitutes. I enjoy pornography, and if I needed a brothel I would ask a taxi driver.

These adverts are for the semi illegal side, the small flat in a cheap area, with the pimp nearby in case either person needs a little persuasion. Otherwise why are there so many adverts for these entertainments in every town?

.
You clearly haven't recently seen a local newspaper in the UK then. The classifieds are full of thinly veiled adverts for prostitutes - be it in the guise of massages, escorts or company. They are advertising exactly what you are suggesting.

I just had a look at Doll House. I was expecting it to be expensive, but CHF 100 for a lap dance? Ouch! I was expecting CHF 50. Going rate in London is £20 and in the grim North I'm led to believe for as little as £5, but I'm sure you get what you pay for.

Yes, and pretty miserable it is too. The whole setup is designed to siphon money out of your wallet while offering the worst possible service.

The only place that I know of that is semi-presentable is the American Table Dance Club in Hinwil (google it, they have a website, but I can't google it cos I'm at work). Table dances are in the price range you suggest (a bit less than that actually) and there is very much a fun and "live and let live" attitude rather than "spend a lot of cash or leave" as most other places have. Quite a lot of female guests too.

I'd didn't realise that "too much" and "caffeine" could have any meaning in the same context.
