Austrian Brothel To Offer Free Sauna Club Voucher for Getting Vaccinated On-Site

Funpalast brothel in Vienna, Austria, is giving people who get their Covid-19 vaccine a voucher for a complimentary session with a “lady of their choice.”

The brothel offers clients a free 30-minute session in the sexual sauna club if they get vaccinated at the on-site clinic. Funaplast started the promotion on November 1. Their reasoning is to increase revenue after losing many clients due to low vaccination rates. The brothel claims they have lost 50% of their clientele due to the pandemic.

Funaplast will offer the vaccines every Monday from 4 pm to 10 pm during November. The sauna club voucher is worth 40 Euros. The clinic will administer the vaccine and grant the voucher to boys as young as 14. An adult must accompany them. 

The Associated Press reported, “Austria has taken a series of measures in recent weeks in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 and encourage more people to get vaccinated. On Monday, new rules took effect barring unvaccinated people who haven’t recovered from an infection from restaurants, hotels, hairdressing salons, and large public events.”

Austria’s chancellor Alexander Schallenberg announced that unvaccinated people could face lockdown restrictions if Covid cases increase. The chancellor said, “That a lockdown for unvaccinated people was probably unavoidable…the unvaccinated are facing an “uncomfortable” winter and Christmas.” He did not call for a lockdown for the vaccinated.

The country’s current vaccination rate is 65%, which the chancellor called “shamefully low.” The country has the lowest vaccination rate of any Western European country, aside from Liechtenstein.

Chancellor Schallenberg noted the country had just days to implement lockdowns for the unvaccinated. The government agreed that once 30% of ICU beds are filled with Covid patients, unvaccinated people will be placed under lockdown. The current ICU level is 20%. 

During a news conference, he said, “A lockdown for the unvaccinated means one cannot leave one’s home unless one is going to work, shopping (for essentials), stretching one’s legs — namely exactly what we all had to suffer through in 2020.”

Austria is experiencing its highest 7-day average since the start of the pandemic. On November 11, there were 9,593 cases.
