Swiss Hookers Trained to Use Defibrillators Town hopes to save lives of elderly sex tourists By Emily Rauhala, Newser User Posted Feb 19, 2010 7:13 AM CST 6 comments Comments Swiss hookers can now quite literally help you with your broken heart (Shutter Stock) (Newser) – Swiss hookers can—quite literally—mend your broken heart. In the Swiss town of Lugano, prostitutes are being trained to use defibrillators to re-start the hearts of their eager but elderly customers. Several men have died doing the deed in Lugano, including a pensioner who recently perished getting busy with the help of anti-impotence drugs. "Having customers die on us isn't exactly good publicity," a local sex club owner tells the Telegraph. Lugano's health officials back the plan. The town has 38 sex clubs, fueled in large part by sex tourists from Italy and sex workers from South America and Eastern Europe. The British Heart Foundation says defibrillators are " becoming increasingly quick and easy for the lay person to use."
