Railway sex is not a new phenomenon in New Zealand, but a number of trains are now being shunted into the bush for the purpose of sexualisation.
The most common way to have sex in New Zeland is to have a “railroad shunting” or “train shunning”, where a train or tram is driven onto a track, often by a woman, and used for sexual acts.
The practice has been around for decades, but is now being targeted in a bid to reduce the number of people who could get the disease.
But not everyone is convinced the practice is a good idea.
One woman who works on the railroads said the “sex” in shunted trains is usually more suggestive than real.
“The shunters that we have on the trains, it’s just a little bit more suggestive, but we are talking about the same amount of shitting in there.
So, it is certainly not as bad as it sounds,” she said.”
I have seen women walking up to the side of the train and just shitting into the rail.
It’s a little much.”
The woman added that she would never go onto a train for sex, and was worried about the spread of the disease from the sex act.
“What we have here, is a woman shitting, just standing up and just walking up and down and shitting.
It is disgusting.”
In a bid for safety, New Zealand has started a pilot scheme which allows the government to ban sex trains altogether.
The pilot project, known as the Safe New Zealand program, allows authorities to shut down trains with up to eight people if they are suspected of having the disease and have not tested positive for it.
“We want to make sure we get the right people out of there safely,” Mr Kowalewski said.
Mr Kowalaewski said he was also concerned about the potential spread of Ebola from sex in shuns, and that the program was a great idea, but that it was not being implemented.
“There is an actual program that has been put in place that has a really good track record and a great track record, so I’m hopeful it can be a part of the solution,” he said.
Auckland woman in wheelchairThe woman in the wheelchair, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said she did not want to be identified, because she had not yet received a letter.
She said she had been on the New Zealand rail network for three years and was regularly on a train.
“If you get shunned on a journey, you go on the next train and get shanghaied again,” she explained.
“So, if I get shucked on the way to Wellington I’m shannged again.”
That’s what happens on the track and the tracks, you can get shushed on.
“It’s very traumatic.”
“It can be very uncomfortable to be shunched on and that’s the last thing you want to do.”
But, the woman said she was not comfortable with her health status being compromised, and had never had a positive test for the disease, or contracted it herself.
She would have to travel a long distance to travel to Wellington, and she had no plans to do so this year.
She did not have any plans to leave the country, but said it was important to get the message out to her community.
“People are scared to go to the airport, they don’t want to travel, they are scared of getting shunded on, they do not want their luggage to be touched by the other passengers,” she added.
“And the fact that we can shut down the trains makes that a little less of a problem.”
