Next Up In Switzerland: Drive-In Sex Boxes

Switzerland is totally cutting edge when it comes to sex accouterments. A couple weeks ago, the country announced it would begin selling pregnancy tests in vending machines. Its latest sex-nological improvement will be the addition of drive-in sex boxes in Zurich’s red-light district. What exactly is a drive-in sex box, you ask? It’s like a parking spot surrounded by metal fences where Johns can park while being “serviced.” The idea is that it would give prostitutes more privacy to work in broad daylight and protect nearby residents from having to see anything lewd.

Miner Asks Long-Term GF For Hand In Marriage

What influences a man’s decision to ask for a woman’s hand in marriage? If you’re Chilean miner Esteban Rojas, it’s being trapped in a mine for more than a month. Yesterday, Esteban, who’s been stuck in a mine shaft for more than a month along with 32 others, sent a letter up asking his girlfriend of 25 years, Jessica Ganiez, to finally marry him. Said Ganiez, “I have tried to hint at it many times, but it never happened. He always said getting married is a once in a lifetime thing and he would ask me when the time is best.
