Now I am finding some humor in this move...

LONDON - Swiss prostitutes are being trained to use defibrillators to prevent clients with heart problems from dying on them.

Brothel owners near Lugano say electric shock 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 38 sex clubs and brothel in the Lugano area. And more are planned, according to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, 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.

Local health experts are said to have backed the plans to stock defibrillators in sex clubs and brothels. THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
