One of the traditional methods which prostitutes have used to contact customers is the personals in Finnish sex magazines and even daily newspapers. The ads (in the daily papers) are very ambiguously worded and of course in Finnish. The traditional code word indicating prostitution in the personals is "päiväkahvit", which roughly translates as 'daytime coffee service'. However, these personals usually require a written reply to the signed pseudonym, so they are a slow method, not very suited for those looking for quick sex. Besides, if your Finnish is poor, you may have a hard time figuring out whether an ad is offering or asking for service.
