Sex and Prostitution in Switzerland
Home > Business Guide > Table of Contents > Outside the law > Prostitution

Prostitution is legal in Switzerland and there are full pages of advertisements for “massages” in Swiss tabloids. Pimping, however, is illegal and uncommon. Most of the prostitutes operate independently from small studios with their cellular phones. Swiss prostitutes pay VAT (Value Added Tax) on their services and some take credit cards. If they have a problem with a client, they will call the police to help them out. But this is as Swiss as they get. The majority of them are foreigners from Latin America, France, Eastern Europe or the Far East. Price charged include all Swiss taxes.
