Switzerland (German: Schweiz, French: Suisse, Italian: Svizzera, Romansch: Svizra, Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica) is a landlocked country in Central Europe. It has borders with France to the west, Italy to the south, Austria and Liechtenstein to the east and Germany to the north.
Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution and other erotica related activities have been documented since the medieval times in Switzerland. During the medieval times, the local community highly tolerated this industry.
Although highly tolerated, the sex industry in Switzerland was running illegally until 1942. After receiving the legal stamp of approval in 1942, the industry became legal (though regulated). With the legalization, licensed brothels started coming up in major towns of the country (Zurich being on the forefront). The players in this industry started advertising their services in major newspapers in the country.
Prostitution is legal, and so are brothels. The Swiss criminal code puts strict boundaries on their activities: it is forbidden to induce somebody into prostitution, to restrict the freedom of a prostitute by supervising him or her in the course of his or her activities or by exercising control over the location, time, volume or other aspects of his or her work as a prostitute (art. 195). Cantons can also edict additional measures.
The prostitution scene changed a lot with the gradual coming into force of the Free Movment of Persons Agreement, from 2002 on. This agreement allows firms and independant workers from the European Union to work in Switzerland 90 days a year. As a result, a lot of European prostitutes started to come and work in Switzerland for short periods.
This changed is easily perceptible in street prostitution. Until the 2000's, most of the prostitutes were local, and a lot of them stayed in the business very long. You would see faces month after month, year after year, offering their services at the same place. Now, street prostitution is dominated by women who stay in Switzerland just for a while. Some of them come only once, some other come a few months every year. A big part of them are South American with a European passeport and Spanish is the dominant language amongst the prostitutes of the Switzerland.
The first price given by street prostitutes for a quickie is 100 CHF for decades. But competition lead some prostitutes to accept lower prices. As the demand has increased less than the offer, the income of the prostitutes has lessened.
Sex workers who chose to work in the industry must pay a tax of $5.39 (5 Swiss Francs) for each night that they work as a prostitute. There are 14,000 officially registered sex workers in Switzerland, with 800 located in Geneva. In Zurich, there are a reported 11 prostitutes per 1,000 residents. According to union rules, the must charge at least $100 to a client. In 2011, the annual revenue of the sex trade in Switzerland was $4.4 Billion. One in Five men between the ages of 20 to 65 in Switzerland has visited a sex worker at least once in their lives. 50% of prostitution customers are swiss men, 50% of customers are married and average age of customers is 33.

Gay & Lesbian
In Switzerland, the rights of individuals have traditionally had a high priority. At the same time, privacy is regarded as a fundamental asset. There is a strong contrast between cities and the countryside in public discourse about LGBT rights in Switzerland. Although some personal attitudes may change slower than the laws, the general public is tolerant of LGBT people and thus bias motivated violence or discrimination is all but unheard of. There is a vibrant LGBT community with a wide range of gay and lesbian subculture in the two main cities of Zurich and Geneva, as well as some on offer in the neighbourhood centres of Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Lausanne, and St. Gallen. Outside of these centres, LGBT people are barely noticed/noticeable in public.
In January 2010, a luxurious brothel, only for gay men was opened in an industrial part of Zurich, the first completely gay brothel in Switzerland.
Many young Romani men who leave for Switzerland, start making money in a gay club, and later they find an older Swiss man. They might live in his home for a week, for example, then spend another three days back home in the, Romania, Bulgaria or Czech Republic and then return to Switzerland for a week. They support their entire families on the money they make in Switzerland. During two weeks in Switzerland a "luxury male prostitute" can make up to 4000 Swiss Franc. These are primarily boys who want a high standard of living, take very good care of their physical appearance, and don't turn their noses up at luxury brands of clothing - quite the opposite. They don't use heroin, but sometimes take cocaine, which is less likely to ruin their looks.
There are more than 10,000 prostitutes in Switzerland.
Switzerland is not surprisingly one of the safest countries in Europe, but anywhere that attracts Rolex-wearing bankers and crowds of distracted tourists will also bring out a few pickpockets. Obviously, keep an eye on belongings, especially in the midst of summer crowds.
There have been problems with police assuming that any Black, East European, or Arab person without an ID card or passport is an illegal immigrant, and treating them accordingly. That could be a considerable problem if you are travelling alone.
The drinking age for beer, wine and alcoholic cider is 16 (but not in all cantons, so make sure to ask before buying) while the age for any other alcohol (e.g. spirits, "alcopops", etc.) is 18. The public consumption of alcohol in Switzerland is legal, so do not be alarmed if you see a group of teenagers drinking a six-pack on public property; this is by no means out of the ordinary and should not be interpreted as threatening.
