What do sex and burgers have in common?

Q. What do sex and burgers have in common?

A. In Zurich, Switzerland both are available via drive-in.

Yes, you read that correctly. Starting next year, prostitutes in Zurich will be able to conduct business in drive-in sex booths thanks to a Swiss referendum passed earlier this year.

You can read the full details in the ABC News article here.

Some of the details:

"The booths will be outfitted with parking spaces, alarm buttons and an on-site counselor…sex workers will also have to apply for a license, register with a health insurer and purchase a ticket each night for approximately $5 before they begin soliciting customers."

Is this a good idea? Is this a bad idea?

A natural progression, considering there are drive-through marriages and funerals.

I like the idea that sex workers have to get health insurance. The $5 seems like a reasonable overhead price to pay. It's definitely better than having a pimp, although that's an extreme example. I am not sure that the on site counselor is a good thing. If you are going to allow sex workers, you are already taking a moral stance. Stick with it. Commit to it. Don't try to bring some artificial morality to it by adding a counselor. Anyone who wants to use a sex worker's services should be required to show proof that they are at the age of consent, whatever that may be in Switzerland. (Or any other country that might implement this.) Given that a customer is of the age of legal consent, he or she is an adult and it is his or her business what he or she does.

Just my .02.

Well regulated, safe, and medically protected. Makes a lot of sense to me, and it's not like making it illegal has stopped it.

I think it's a brilliant idea. Prostitution is referred to as the oldest profession because it's been around forever and it's not going anywhere no matter what laws we have. A drive-thru version sounds like it would be quite a bit safer for the women than current situations.
