Zurich could open a municipal brothel if a proposal by a left-wing politician gets the go-ahead.

The motion was filed by Socialist Party city councillor Christine Seidler last week, reported Sunday paper Schweiz am Sonntag.

According to Seidler, a council-sponsored brothel would give more security to prostitutes who have been forced away from Zurich city centre after new regulations came into effect three years ago.

A 2013 Zurich bylaw bans sex workers from plying their trade on certain residential streets in the city centre including the Sihlquai in Kreis 4, once a notorious red light district.

Zurich already provides for prostitutes in the form of drive-in ‘sex boxes’ which opened in August 2013 in an industrial sector on the outskirts of town.
