Swiss prostitutes make move to 'sex boxes'

The number of prostitutes using Zurich’s 'sex boxes' has nearly doubled over the last year say city authorities, who are hailing the two-year-old scheme a success.

Around 25-30 sex workers are now using the guarded drive-in brothel, up from around 15 this time last year.

That’s nearly the same number as the estimated 32 women that had been plying their trade on the Sihlquai, a street in Zurich’s red-light district, before prostitution was banned there in August 2013.

Set up two years ago as a way of drawing prostitutes away from the Sihlquai, the wooden drive-in ‘sex boxes’ can accommodate 50 prostitutes and are one of three spaces where they can work legally in Zurich.

 The boxes are under 24-hour surveillance and feature facilities including a laundry, shower and cafe, alarm buttons and access to social workers and counsellors from the Flora Dora support network. Full story...
