In addition to street prostitution and call girls, there are a large number of massage parlours and "studios"; there are pages and pages of small ads in daily newspapers ("Blick" being the national "yellow press" one, its ads' main focus is mostly on Zurich however), and even serious ones like "TagesAnzeiger" (Zurich) have them. Look for the "Services" section, either under "Massage" or "Salons".
