They also argued creating the sex boxes would stop people trafficking by criminal groups and help reduce the underground sex trade. Before the sex boxes were introduced, prostitutes gathered on the riverside Sihlquai area near Zurich main train station, and violence was a daily reality, the social services department said in a statement on Wednesday.

Around 20 to 25 prostitutes use the sex boxes every night, down slightly from the 32 or so prostitutes who were active in the Sihlquai area previously. Prostitution is legal in Switzerland but sex workers are required to register with municipal authorities and get regular health checks.
