Swiss officials hail drive-in 'sex boxes' a success
Officials in Switzerland have declared their drive-in "sex-boxes" a success.
The boxes, which were installed last year in Zurich to improve safety for sex workers, involve prostitutes to relocate from a popular strip in downtown Zurich to the wooden, car-sized boxes just outside the city.
The boxes, which have on-site social workers and security and no involvement of pimps, even include a panic button, laundry, showers and a cafe.
On average, 15 prostitutes can be found working nightly at the publicly funded sex boxes, where clients, who must be alone, drive in, cruise the facility and select a sex worker, who then gets in the car and has the client park in one of the monitored boxes.
