It’s a brothel with a minimal interior. The progressive Swiss have opened a number of wooden ‘Sex Boxes’ in the ZURICH suburb of ALTSTETTEN. Taking a cue from the Germans and the Dutch, the doorless structures come equipped with neon lights, posters promoting condom use, and panic buttons for the workers to guard against unwanted funny business.
The Sex Box allows clients to drive through a park full of dozens of workers between 7 p.m. and 5 a.m. to negotiate prices, then pull into a stall to complete the transaction. <PHOTO – Steffen Schmit courtesy AP>
