back to article Swiss prostitutes armed with defibrillators

Prostitutes in the picturesque Swiss lakeside town of Lugano are adding defibrillation to their list of services following the death of several elderly punters whose hearts just couldn't take the pace. According to the Corriere della Sera, there are currently 38 brothels and sex clubs in the Lugano area, and more are planned to …

Why?

Naturally, the answer is a dead punter is a punter less and missed earnings. From the clients' point of view, this might be seen slightly differently. It must not be a prostitute but otherwise what's better for a death?

Lost revenue

If my understanding is correct, it is normal practise in this profession to get paid up-front for services to be delivered, with any additional extras paid for afterwards. Therefore I would have thought the premature expiration of a customer would save the professional from having to perform the cpntracted for services. As such contracts are usually always verbal there would be no recompense to the deceased's estate.

Paris because she knows how to deliver a professional service

health advice

a pensioner who suffered a heart attack while enjoying Lugano's delights with the aid of "pharmaceutical assistance".

Note to oldies - Amyl Nitrate for sexually aroused pensioners is not clever.

re, health advice

"Note to oldies - Amyl Nitrate for sexually aroused pensioners is not clever."

Probably not, but I'm sure this "pharmaceutical assistance" is a reference to Viagra which, I have read, has led to an upswell and a persistent, measurable rise in oldie-sex, of both the amateur and the paid-for kind.

Sounds like an opportunity for some diversification

after all, the application of large electric shocks to the genitals is a very popular fetish. Erm, so I'm told.

Let's hear it for common sense.

Meanwhile, of course, sex workers in this country would probably be being prosecuted for manslaughter in a ridiculous belief that this would "send a message" to other women to "discourage them" from entering the sex trade...

Trade

"The Corriere della Sera says the local red light trade is worth around €70m a year. Eighty per cent of the punters are Italian, largely serviced by girls from South America and, increasingly, Eastern Europe."

See, proof that the Swiss really are at the centre of international 'Trade'.

Remember Girls

After they get zapped , it is Mouth to Mouth and nothing else

PS I carry a facemask in my car in case I encounter a Cardiac Arrest, as mouth to mouth is not at all pleasant. Even if it was to Paris.

Or else...

TicinoNews says that there is an increasing number of Italian housewives and clerks who are crossing to Ticino and a different career track, driven by the crisis.

Adds a whole new meaning to the term

a full service operation.

Mine is the somewhat under washed raincoat.

joking aside

In answer to all the "why".. consider the poor girls, it's probably psychologically rough to start with, selling yourself- but having someone have a heart attack and die on you could be pretty haunting.

Moreover, an elderly punter visiting a pretty young girl is likely to be putting his cardio-vascular system under unusual strain, and is at hugely elevated risk.

It's a pragmatic decision, which likely good for both service users and the girls. Protecting the health of the latter is a must as it's something that isn't going to stop. Morally censorious attempts to drive it underground just put the lives of those involved, both from disease and violence. Remember that they're still people, someone's sister, daughter, maybe even mum.

(Yes, I know there are male prostitutes too, adjust as appropriate. Everyone deserves decent treatment, and if they're at the bottom of the pile, that doesn't make it OK to ignore them)

Sorry, that was all a bit preachy, but I feel strongly about this.

Surely SOMEONE has to ask...

... How much extra does that cost?
