The Country Where You Can Pay For Driving Lessons With S*X

Love me
Officials in The Netherlands say driving instructors can now be paid in kind instead of cash, but there’s a catch. The proposition must be made by the instructor and not the student.
According to USA Today, the issue came up when Transport minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen and Justice minister Ard van der Steur revisited a question from an official about whether a driving instructor paid in s*xual acts amounted to prostitution.
Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, but it’s tightly regulated and taxed, which seems to be the reason why the issue was brought up at all.
While the two government ministers did determine the boning/driving exchange was legal, there are some pretty significant caveats:
• All parties must be over 18
• The s*x may only be requested as payment by the instructor; the student may not offer the sex as payment, which would make the transaction prostitution. This is a tricky distinction, but the thinking is, if the s*x act is offered by the student, then the transaction is the sex act which is the product and the driving lesson is the payment. If the driving instructor requests a sexual compensation, the product is the driving lessons, and the finger-blasting or whatever is just the form of payment.

The ministers summed this up in a letter to Parliament:
“It’s not about offering s*xual activities for remuneration, but offering a driving lesson. It is important that the initiative lies with the driving instructor, and focuses on offering a driving lesson, with the payment provided in sexual acts. When a s*xual act offered in lieu of financial payment, that is prostitution.”
