Swiss Prostitutes Trained To Use Defibrillators In Brothels To Prevent Clients Dying

Swiss Prostitutes Trained To Use Defibrillators In Brothels To Prevent Clients Dying

Swiss prostitutes are being trained to use defibrillators to prevent clients with heart problems from dying on them, it has emerged.

18 Feb 2010 Brothel owners in the Lugano area say electric shop treatment to restart customer's hearts is needed because so many elderly customers are using their services. 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". There are now 38 sex clubs and brothel in the Lugano area. And more are planned, according to Italian daily, Corriere della Sera, in order to accommodate the thousands of customers who pour over the boarder from Italy, where brothels are illegal. Around 80 per cent of the men who pay for sex in the area are thought to be Italian.

The sex trade in the pretty, lakeside Swiss town is also being fuelled by prostitutes from South America and Eastern Europe who enter the country via Italy. Local health experts are said to have backed the plans to stock defibrillators in sex clubs and brothels.

Defibrillators work by delivering a controlled electric shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat, after it has stopped.

If they were actually good at their job, they’d only need their tongue.

< nitpick>
Defibrilators do not “restart hearts” - if the heart’s in v. fib and you’re lucky, they shock it back into a normal sinus rhythm. Still might do some good if the pros get CPR training too.

Modern defibrillators are becoming increasingly quick and easy for the “lay” person to use, which can mean the difference between life and death”.

A propos of nothing, a friend once advised me that the way to prevent your boyfriend from sharing an intimate video is to clearly speak into the mic: “Oh that’s so cute, it’ll be a penis one day when it grows up.”

“Oh that’s so cute, it’ll be a penis one day when it grows up.”

During testimony in one of our courts-martial years ago, a sexual assault victim was asked to describe her attacker's "genitals".

Her response: "It looked like a penis, only smaller."

The only time that I've heard an entire courtroom erupt in laughter .. including the defense counsel .. without the judge going ballistic.

A true classic in military justice.
