    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.



    Published: 6:30AM GMT 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.
    According to the British Heart Foundation: "Modern defibrillators are becoming increasingly quick and easy for the lay person to use, which can mean the difference between life and death".

    I seem to remember the Pattaya Trader ( or one of the other local rags ) doing a survey to find out the adverage age of Pattayas foreign population. They came up with a figure in the 60's . If this were true perhaps there should be a few defibrillators at ' strategic points ' around the city to give the old codgers a jump start if they need it.

    Pretty good plan. A few minutes can make all the difference.

    I reckon they would have better results with electric shock treatment.

    Very sensible idea. Will they stock prostitutes in the hospitals?

    If the anti-impotence medication is not doing its job I would imagine a short burst of "STAND CLEAR" might work !

    Every silly requirement such as this just makes the price higher, but maybe that's the idea. How much is short time there? Probably a lot more than 1000 baht.

    AFAIK the defibrillators are not allowed for public use in Thailand. Anyway its much nicer to go from this earth while enjoying yourself at Soi 6, Lolitas, Hell Club, the Castle (just take your pick) then getting reanimated and, as a worst case cenario, having to explain your wife how the hell you got in that situation....
