Voulez-vous coucher? The city of Zurich is set to open a group of ‘sex boxes’ as a designated space for prostitutes and their customers.

Men seeking the comfort of a prostitute in Zurich will soon have a designated place to get it on with their paid paramours.

In an effort to make street prostitution safer for both sex workers and customers, authorities in the Swiss city have rolled out a series of drive-in “sex boxes,” set to open for business Aug. 26.

Located along a clearly marked path, the drive-in structures are for car customers only.

Adorned with posters promoting condom use and AIDS awareness, and equipped with alarms that can be activated in case of danger, the bare-bones garages hold space for a car and little else. They are for car customers only; men on foot or on motorbikes are not allowed.

 

The boxes are part of an effort to regulate street prostitution and improve the prostitutes' working conditions, authorities said.

While prostitution is legal in Switzerland, Zurich men will no longer be allowed to solicit sex workers outside the group of boxes or two other approved zones.

The 1.4 million-Euro initiative is part of an effort to bestow some order Switzerland’s growing sex trade, with an eye toward protecting workers while also keeping them away from the city center and residential neighborhoods.

Get right with God, these are critical life and death times & circumstances that we are in. What does tomorrow hold for any one of us? Car accident? Sudden heart attack? A coworker gone postal?

For YOUR eternal salvation, this benefits me nothing but benefits you beyond mortal description. Pray this in faith, I can’t pray if for you:

Jesus, I am a sinner and I come to You as my Savior. I repent of my sins and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died to cleanse me of my sins, please cleanse me now. You died and rose again, be my personal Savior Who lives forever.
