Sex in Geneva is just as accessible as in the rest of Switzerland and you can find adult services and thrills in many parts of the city.
Geneva is the second largest city in Switzerland and home to a population of just 200,000 people. Home to the United Nations, the Red Cross and World Health Organisation, the city is not just a popular tourist location but is also an important hub for business, trade and political visitors. In fact, this small city accommodates up to 2.3 million extra guests each year.
Whilst most of these visitors will be looking to enjoy heritage sites and cultural entertainment, some will be more than happy to sample the Swiss approach to adult hospitality. We take a look at the best places in Geneva to enjoy the sex industry.

Prostitution in Geneva
Prostitution in Switzerland is a fully legitimate and regulated part of the economy which nets over €3 billion each year. The law allows Swiss nationals the right to work as a prostitute whilst also offering EU nationals the opportunity to work in the country for up to 90 days a year.
There are around 600 registered prostitutes providing sex services in Geneva; ‘registered’ meaning that they are working within the regulated system, receiving health checks and paying taxes. However, like much of the rest of country, there are many more unregistered prostitutes plying their trade.
In terms of legal activities, registered prostitutes can work in brothels, as escorts or on the streets (see Street Prostitution below). You can also find sex workers for hire in other establishments like massage parlours, strip clubs and contact bars.
Since 2012, many prostitutes in Switzerland belong to a trade union which determines (among other things) the minimum rates to charge for a service. Generally, this is set at 100 CHF (or €85). However, customers can find hookers who charge less than this though these will likely be unregulated or non-union prostitutes, temporary EU nationals and migrants.
The population of prostitutes in Geneva is quite mixed and though you can find Swiss hookers in many of the established venues, you can also find other European nationalities as well as a predominance of South American women. You can find out more about sex in Switzerland by reading our guide.

The main red-light area in Geneva can be found in the Pâquis district of the city. The main street of Rue de Berne runs through the heart of the area and is one of the busier parts of the city, especially at night. Many of the side streets that run off this arterial road are good places to pick up street hookers with the walk down towards lakeside via Rue de Monthoux, Rue Sismondi or Rue Docteur-Alfred Vincent being particular hot spots.
Many of the city’s adult entertainment establishments can be found in the vicinity of Pâquis and competition is high which can push prices lower. However, do remember that union prostitutes will charge a minimum rate of 100 CHF (€85) though oral or manual relief can be procured for around 30 CHF (€25), particularly if you can get out to the area around the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire. Some girls will provide a service in the Parc de l’Observatoire whilst others will only provide relief in a customer’s car.
