Would You Like Fries with That?

From the Department of I've Seen It All Now comes this short report from Time Magazine: Switzerland Confidential: Behold the Legal Sex Drive-Through.

Yes, Friends, the peaceful and bucolic alpine playground of Switzerland has found it necessary to make special arrangements for a particular sort of play. The staid citizens of Zurich are tired of looking out their windows and seeing all sorts of demonstrations of applied biology, and so the police department is looking into setting up "sex boxes" around the city. Each of the boxes, large enough to hold an average car and a small number of consenting adults, is designed to facilitate the sex trade by providing a modicum of privacy while hiding the less-than-savory visuals from passers-by. Here is what one of the sex boxes looks like:

While utilitarian, the structure just seems to lack the ambiance of the traditional bordello...

The article quotes wonderfully-named police spokesman Reto Casanova as saying, "We can't get rid of prostitution, so have to learn how to control it."

And if you need more information, you can get a unique perspective in the picturesque town of Skagway, Alaska...

And since just about anything I say from here on out will get me into trouble, we'll just leave it here.

Have a good day. Enjoy that visit to Zurich. More thoughts tomorrow.

I think their little stalls have all the ambiance of my garage ... without the garage door or a roof.

HEY! Google Earth just got more interesting.
