You’ve got to love the Swiss. First, they make some damn fine chocolate and they live in a stunningly beautiful part of the world. They understand the importance of an armed population, and virtually every Swiss male has a military-issued assault rifle at home. Better yet, they’re actually trained in how to use them, proving once again that an armed society is a polite society.
The Swiss also understand that men will be men, and sometimes need to turn the freak knob up to 12. Police in Zurich grew tired of complaints from red-light district residents about sex in public, so they took a novel approach towards solving the problem: they built three-sided carports where motorists could take prostitutes for a little slap and tickle.
The carports are little more than covered chain link fencing, about six feet high, but they’re enough to give working girls and their customers a little privacy. The idea actually came from the Germans (of course), who adopted a similar strategy to combat prostitution in Essen and Cologne. As for the Swiss police, they see it as accepting the inevitable; said one spokesman, “We can’t get rid of prostitution, so we have to learn how to control it”.
