Owner Bradley Charvet, who runs the Swiss escort service Facegirl, had originally planned to employ sex workers to entertain clients, but legal issues meant he now wanted to use high-tech robots.
Charvet told Swiss newspaper Le Matin that he planned to charge men 60 Swiss francs ($62) for a drink that includes the sex act from a woman selected from an iPad.
Prostitution is legal in Switzerland but the project has encountered resistance.
A spokeswoman from Geneva’s department of security and economy told Le Matin “paid-for sexual services are banned in public establishments under the law on catering and the sale of drinks.”
Charvet believes he can get around the problem using robots
The entrepreneur says he’s in talks with a U.S. sex robot manufacturing company to buy several “lifelike robot-women” for a cost ranging between $1,800-$3,000.
