We swear this isn't a joke.
If you’re a driving instructor then you might want to consider moving to the Netherlands ASAP. The country’s driving teachers are in the news because apparently it's legal for them to accept payment in the form of sex. Now prostitution in the country is legal but as you’d expect there are rules and regulations to follow as well as taxes to be paid. So, that means there are some rules a driving instructor would need to follow in order to physically collect payments, if you get our drift. First off, both parties must be 18, aka adults.
Secondly, the driving instructor has to request payment in sex, not the person being taught to drive. Why is it like this? Well, if the student driver were to offer physical favors as payment then there would be no economic exchange. With the instructor offering, the service offered is driving lessons and the payment collected is, well, you know. Here’s the official explanation courtesy of a letter written to parliament by justice minister Ard van der Steur and transport minister Melanie Schultz van Haegan. "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.”
Also, the act itself must be done in a way that is safe for the public and the participants. To us this means no back seat action on public roadways, but take it as you will. So, how did this issue even get brought up? Apparently the Dutch parliament fielded a question from a concerned official. The idea is apparently nothing new and is known colloquially as “ride for a ride.” The only question left is, how many driving instructors will actually accept sex as a payment? Well, all the guys likely will, anyway. Better yet, how will they broach the subject? Now that's a good question! Finally and for the record, the car seen here (the Vencer Sarthe) is Dutch.
