BROTHEL in Austria provides Covid-19 vaccinations for customers – and offers free entry to ‘sauna club’ to anyone who gets jabbed

  • A brothel in Vienna, Austria, has provided Covid-19 vaccinations for its clientele
  • Funpalast has offered those who get jabbed on-site 30 minutes in a ‘sauna club’
  • Drive to increase revenue after a drop in clients because of low vaccination rates
  • Austria has introduced new rules barring unvaccinated people from bars, pubs  

A brothel in Austria has provided Covid-19 vaccinations for customers – and offered free entry to a ‘sauna club’ for anyone who agrees to have the jab. 

Funpalast brothel in Vienna offers clients a 30-minute session in the sexual ‘sauna club’ with the ‘lady of their choice’ if they get the vaccine at the on-site clinic.

The brothel said the project, which started on November 1, is part of a drive to increase revenue after a fall in the number of clients because of low vaccination rates.

Only around 65 per cent of Austrians are fully vaccinated and those who have not had the jab are barred from restaurants, hotels, hairdressing salons and large public events. 

The rules, which were announced on Friday night, are a response to a rapidly rising infection rate which yesterday stood at 635 new cases per 100,000 residents over the past seven days – over three times the level in neighboring Germany.

Vaccines will be on offer every Monday from 4pm to 10pm through the month of November in an effort to encourage men to get the jab in exchange for a sauna club voucher worth 40 euros.

Boys as young as 14 are reportedly allowed to use the clinic, provided they are accompanied by an adult, to comply with Austria equality laws. 

Women are also being encouraged to visit the brothel for the vaccine.  

‘Due to the pandemic, we have registered a 50 per cent decrease [in clients], with this initiative we hope that the number of customers will rise again’, the brothel said, announcing the clinic. 

Funpalast’s owner added the brothel is located near a monument of painter Gustav Klimt and told potential clients to use the statue ‘as an excuse for the delay… when you return home’.

It comes as Austrian authorities said yesterday they would step up police checks to enforce new rules for unvaccinated people.  

The government foresees a four-week transition period to encourage the unvaccinated to get shots. 

During that time, anyone who has received one vaccine dose and has a negative PCR test will be allow to attend events and enter the listed locations and events. 

Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said that 800 police officers tasked with checking compliance with the Covid-19 rules will be added to some 4,000 officers who are already on regular patrols.

‘For those who keep to all the measures, it’s more than unfair if there are people who think they can simply circumvent or even fool health authorities, the health ministry and experts’ guidelines,’ Nehammer said.

A customer who flouts the rules can face a fine of up to 500 euros, while a business can be fined up to 30,000 euros if customers aren’t certified as vaccinated or having recovered from Covid-19.

The government has said that, if the situation continues to worsen, further restrictions for unvaccinated people could follow.
