Brothel owners in the Lugano area say electric shock treatment to restart customer's hearts is needed because so many elderly customers are using their services.If you want to know why brothels should be legalised, it's all there. Because it actually saves lives. And there's plenty of other historical evidence about people being killed by illegality from bathroom gin to how narcotics are cut today.
The most recent victim was a pensioner, thought to be having fun with the help of anti-impotence medication.
His death followed a series of other incidents, some fatal, in which heart attacks have claimed brothel customers in the area.
The owner of one sex club said: "Having customers die on us isn't exactly good publicity".
Think about it... you're running a "massage parlour" masquerading as a brothel and you get a defibralator in, and train your girls in how to use CPR. Next thing you know, the government comes along and says that this is obviously an indicator that prostitution is going on in the premises, as you'd only need one if horizontal jogging is taking place.
So instead, they don't have a defibrilator and when some old boy with a dodgy ticker comes in, they instead have to rely on the time for an ambulance to arrive.
Very practical people, the Swiss.
