I have never met shemales in Italy. All I know is Puntotrans, a website in which they post their adds.
In Switzerland, you will find adds either in sex4u mainly in French Speaking counties or in And6 for German speaking counties. A few of these adds use fake photos, especially adds of Asian transexuals. IMHO, shemales are expensive in Switzerland.
In France, there used to be a funny area in the westside of Paris called Bois de Boulogne. It's a forest linked to the 16th district of Paris where tranny hookers used to work at night (and even in daytime). Since 2003, they had to cope with police raids after the country adopted a law against racolage. The law was abolished in April 2016 but customers can be fined up to € 1,500 (the first time) then € 3,000 (the second time is a felony) when they get caught for the second time. Since then, the activity was sharply reduced although it never stopped. Another legal risk is to be caught in the wood far from the street at night. Since a hurricane stroke Paris in 1999, a local bylaw prohibits people to hang in the forest at night.
80 % of the hookers are shemales. French transexuals vanished in the late 1990's. Most of the shemales are latinas (I f***ed shemales from Brasil, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Peru and Mexico) and a few of them come from Tahiti or Northern Africa.
You can find all kind of shemales in the forest : petite, tall, top, bottom, posties, big cocks etc ... I looked for an interesting video in YouTube but most of them deal with the police work or describe shemales as miserable people exploited by customers. Prices are fairly low (€ 20 for a BJ behind the bush, € 30 or 40 for sex and you can negociate a tranny to go with you to your hotel for € 100 or 150 depending on the feeling).
The area is not 100 % safe. I was pickpocketed once. Another risk are youngster walking along the street and watching trannies' activities or coming at 4 in a car and bashing them. Another "gang" is the police (as above described).
Here is a map used by mongers of Paris to write reviews and deal with the area.
I looked for videos in YouTube, most of them deal with police raids or tend to describe shemales as miserable people. I prefrred to look for photos in Internet. A few of them are more than 15 years old but they describe the atmosphere how I felt it when I used to go there.
When athletic trannies started walking naked in the middle of the street it was time to stay away. Another tip I used consisted in walking in the walkway far the street or even in the forest. I was hidden in the shadow and could observe where young trannies were standing and what they looked like.
Hookers can/could also be found in daytime.
Hookers built tents in the forest to create privacy, especially in daytime, but the places were often raided by the police. Here are police officers controlling hookers near the main street (Allée de la Reine Marguerite).
A few hookers started using trucks in the early 2000's but only a minority did. Since the law changed in April 2016, trucks are a real trap for mongers. The police just need to wait for them to get out to catch them.
You can also find a few websites with shemales adds all over France but Paris remains the area with the most shemale escorts. One is Vivastreet and another one is escort69. The main problem that mongers have to cop with is that latinas tend to behave in the room as they did in the forest for quicky. What was a funny experience at 30 € is considered to be too expensive when the monger pays 100 € or 150 € or when the tranny decides the session of 1 hour is over after 30 minutes.
