    Dutch driving instructors can trade lessons for sex
    By Lauren Said-Moorhouse, for CNN

    Story highlights
    • Officials in the Netherlands say driving instructors can offer lessons in exchange for sex
    • Issue was raised in Dutch parliament when opposition politician called for ban
    • Ministers say transaction must be initiated by teacher and both parties must be at least 18

    (CNN)It brings a whole new meaning to the expression "going Dutch."

    Government ministers in the Netherlands have confirmed that it is legal for driving instructors to offer lessons in exchange for sex.

    Prostitution is legal and regulated in the country, where sex workers are considered "self-employed" and can openly advertise in newspapers and online.

    The Dutch government tackled the issue head on after Gert-Jan Segers, of the socially conservative opposition party ChristenUnie (Christian Union), tabled a question in parliament in November.

    Segers described such transactions as "illegal prostitution" and called for them to be banned. He argued that student drivers would not have the requisite escort license, and so would not be declaring any sexual acts for tax purposes.

    But Melanie Schultz van Haegen, the country's minister of infrastructure and the environment, and Security and Justice Minister Ard van der Steur said that while the practice -- widely dubbed "ride for a ride" -- may be "undesirable," it is not against the law, provided both parties are over 18 and the instructor suggests it.

    They said that if the transaction were reversed, with students proposing "personal services" in return for lessons, then this would be unlawful.

    Here ya go... gives new meaning to the phrase, "Learning to drive a stick":

    If you’re broke, sexy, and really need to learn how to drive in Amsterdam, things are looking up for you. Same goes if you’re Dutch, a driving instructor, and really horny, because the government in the Netherlands has decided that it’s legal but “undesirable” for driving instructors to be paid in boinkings.

    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 sexual 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 (duh)

    • The sex 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 sex act is offered by the student, then the transaction is the sex act 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. See?

    The ministers summed this up in a letter to Parliament:

    “It’s not about offering sexual 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 sexual act offered in lieu of financial payment, that is prostitution.”

    It’s expected that other independent service-industry jobs may also soon seek out this sort of erotic compensation: plumbers, computer repair people, pool guys, all of the old porn staples, finally making the magic happen in reality.

    I’m sure the sex-for-services barter system is already happening unofficially all over the world for a dizzying array of services (I’m pretty sure my old ornithologist once obliquely asked me for a squeezer in exchange for re-hinging my kestrel’s beak) but the Netherlands seem to be at the vanguard of legal services-for-nookie.

    I wonder if this will help get all those broke millennials driving after all?
