Zurich begins an experiment with drive-in 'sex boxes'
ZURICH (AP) - No car, no sex.
That's the rule for a novel experiment Zurich is launching on Monday to make prostitution less of a public nuisance and safer for women.
Switzerland has long been famous for its mountaineering, chocolate and precision watches, but a lesser known aspect is its legal prostitution since 1942, for which its largest city is one of the main centres in Europe.
Fashionably teak-colored open wooden garages, popularly called "sex boxes" by the Swiss media, will be open for business for drive-in customers.
