In a bid to enable brothels end lockdown, Swiss sex workers have come up with rules which they are going to minimise the risk of transmitting coronavirus in brothels.
UK’s Daily mail has established that Switzerland adult industry has been hit hard by the pandemic after the government placed a temporary ban on prostitution in March 16 to help contain the spread of the virus.
According to a plan by ProkaRe – a US based financial service company, the two sex positions; ‘reverse cowgirl’ and ‘doggy style’ are the most recommended since they allow for a safe distance between faces.
The positions also reduce risks of transmission of virus in water droplets, a Swiss media outlet reported.
Reverse cowgirl position
The two positions allow for the woman to face away from sexual partner thereby avoiding face – face contact.
Alongside these measures, brothels are going to be ventilated for at least 15 minutes after every customer.
Bed sheets and hand towels are going to be washed at a temperature of at least 60 degrees each time.
The plan further recommends sex workers to wear face masks and gloves and ensuring that their nose and mouth is covered at all time.
Gloves, condoms and disinfectants would also be provided at brothels and each session be kept to 15 minutes only.
The document calls for the lifting of lockdown restrictions on sex workers as the government is set to give directives on June 8.
Prostitution is legal and regulated in Switzerland.
However, trafficking, forcing people into prostitution and forms of pimping is illegal.
Customer contact data will also be recorded and kept for four weeks for the purpose of tracing.
The plan cushions the workers in brothels against touching personal belongings of customers.
