That's certainly one way to start off the morning: A soon-to-open cafe in Geneva, Switzerland will serve coffee with a side of oral sex, reports The Local Switzerland.

The Local explains: "Put simply, the business model would see men ordering a coffee and using an iPad to select a prostitute they want to perform oral sex on them. They would then sit at the bar." The coffee-blowjob packages would be priced at 60 francs (approximately $62), plus another 5 francs to upgrade to a macchiato (the drink, that is).

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the planned concept has proved controversial, with anti-prostitution groups arguing that it would effectively "legalize pimping." While prostitution is legal in Switzerland (and has been since 1942), it is tightly regulated and workers must be properly permitted. The debate over legal sex work aside, the idea of ordering a human via tablet is more than a little troubling.

Meanwhile in the U.S., so-called "bikini barista" stands where scantily-clad staffers serve espresso have become particularly popular, particularly in the Pacific Northwest. The owner of one such chain, Java Juggs, was arrested in 2003 for operating her coffee stands as brothels.
