Radio porn aims to get the Swiss grinding

A programme on a local Zurich radio airs what it calls “acoustic porn,” hoping to inspire people to make love, a report say.

 

Radio porn aims to get the Swiss grinding

The night programme on 104,1 or 88.2 megahertz in Zurich, headed by producer Oliver Scotoni, features erotically-tinged music and sounds at midnight for five hours, said a report on the popular 20 Minuten newspaper.

Aimed at kicking off the International Radio Festival, the programme is seen as a “countermeasure to the internet porn culture,” the paper quotes Scotoni as saying.

“With me, there are no pictures, but only selected acoustics which inspire the audience,” he said. These acoustics include porn movies soundtrack from the 70s, which according to Scotoni have more “value” than “cheap music” in today’s sex movies, the paper said.

Other sounds include disco classics such as “Love to love you” by Donna Summer or erotically-named reggae, such as “Play with Your Pussy” or “Doctor Dick.”

“I hope that as many Zurich people as possible will make love, this would bring a nice energy to the city,” Scotoni was quoted as saying by the paper.

Swiss rail to close ticket counters in Zurich, Bern, Vaud, Ticino and Zug

Switzerland’s Federal Railways (SBB) will be removing the ticket counter from nine stations in the cantons of Zurich, Vaud, Bern, Zug and Ticino

Swiss rail to close ticket counters in Zurich, Bern, Vaud, Ticino and Zug

The SBB made the announcement on Wednesday, saying the decision was made due to a lack of demand. 

Instead, commuters will need to buy tickets from automated machines. 

In the canton of Zurich, the ticket stations in Dietlikon, Hinwil, Kloten, Männedorf and Oberwinterthur will be closed. 

In neighbouring Zug, Cham’s ticket counter will be closed, while the Herzogenbuchsee station in Bern will also go fully automated.

In Latin Switzerland, Pully in Vaud and Biasca in Ticino will see their ticket counters closed. 

The SBB told Swiss news outlet Watson that approximately 95 percent of ticket sales are now made via self-service machines or online. 

The advent of navigation apps has meant the need for personal advice on directions and travel has fallen, particularly in smaller areas or stations with lower traffic.
