Las Vegas Area Legal Brothels vs. Massage Parlors, Escort Services, and Freelance Prostitutes
Prostitution is legal in Nevada at licensed brothels, and the best 100% legal brothel in Nevada is located right next door to Las Vegas (more on legal brothels below).
But prostitution is illegal in Clark County where Las Vegas is located. That doesn’t mean it’s not available. There are massage parlors, escort services, and pros you can meet online or in bars or occasionally in strip clubs or even on the street—it’s just that paying these establishments or professionals for sex is illegal outside of a brothel.
That means if you decide to hire an escort outside of a legal brothel, there are some risks and hurdles you’ll have to get through.
This article covers Las Vegas legal brothels, freelance prostitutes, escort services and massage parlors, and private show alternatives at the strip clubs. Click a link to skip straight to that section.
I’ll give you an idea of standard prices and practices for each alternative, a description of what each experience is like, and the pros and cons of a legal brothel vs. hiring an escort. I’m going to speak plainly so you can make an informed decision.
Freelance Vegas Escorts
Freelance escorts are women who sell sexual services. They handle their own bookings and marketing rather than obtaining clients through a brothel or escort service.
You can meet these women in a casino bar. (Just sit alone in most any bar on the Strip late at night and you’ll be approached.) You can meet these women on Fremont Street late at night or in other areas frequented by streetwalkers (e.g. west of I15 on Trop). Occasionally you will meet one of these women in a strip club. Or you can find these women online at one of the sites that take their ads. Eros.com is one of the better-known, better-run sites, though probably only half of the women are true freelancers (the other half are being advertised by a service).
If you’re making arrangements with a freelancer you’ve found in a bar, obviously you can see what you’re getting. Just don’t try to talk about services or prices in the bar. Instead, invite the woman up to your room for a drink, and let her guide you through negotiations there in the way she must to avoid potential harassment from cops.
How to Find Independent Escorts Online
If you’re making arrangements with a girl you found online, you will actually get that girl unless the ad has really been placed by a service, in which case the girl you’re trying to hire may be a model rather than a real escort. What you won’t know in advance is whether the woman has put on 30 pounds, or been hospitalized with a wasting disease, since her photos were taken. Also, it can be hard to tell whether you’re dealing with an independent or a service just by looking at the ad.
At Eros, look for “authenticated” escorts. These are women who have provided ID or other proof that they are indeed the advertiser and the person who appears in the ad pictures. Also, if finding an independent is important to you, look for the ads of women who openly talk in their ad about being independent. Note that the word “independent” in the vital statistics doesn’t mean she’s really independent–even women who work for services are technically “independent.”
Also, if you email Candy, and a girl calls the number you’ve provided in your email and says, “I’m Candy, ” it’s probably Candy. Tell her that you specifically want Candy, so that she understands you won’t pay if someone else shows up. If the girl who calls tells you that she answers the phone for the girls, you’re probably dealing with a service. Be sure to ask, because it will make a significant difference in the price.
If you’re interested in reading other men’s reviews of the escort you’re considering, you might want to consider a membership in one of the review sites, like TER (theeroticreview.com) or eccie.net. The reviews can be quite enlightening. These sites also provide discreet identity verification services for both you and the escort.
Prices for Independent Courtesans
The price for bare minimum services may run you 0 to $200 with a prostitute you find on the street in Vegas. This might be for something like a hand job in your hotel room. Intercourse plus oral sex will generally cost you $400 to $500 in Vegas with a woman who is truly independent, but may cost more depending on exactly what you want and how much time you want to spend with her. Some top freelancers have prices starting at $1500 or higher.
For example, a friend found a pro in a high-end strip club who charged $1000 to meet later that night. There was no agency fee or cabbie kickback to cover because he met her directly instead of through a service. They spent about two hours together. I myself have run into a few dancers who offered full sexual services for prices ranging from $500 to $1000 for an hour or two. If you want a full girlfriend experience with an escort or other pro you find in Las Vegas, there will be an additional hourly charge for the extra time, but it won’t be at the rate you pay for actual sex.
There are special hurdles you have to get through when paying for illegal sex, as well as special risks, whether you’re engaging the services of a freelancer or a woman you find through an escort service. These are covered in the escort section below.
How to Hire a Prostitute Through an Escort Service
There are brochures and flyers for escort services all over town, and you can find more escort services online.
If you engage sexual services through an escort service, be aware in advance that the women on those flyers you see on the Strip or downtown are probably not the women who will show up at your hotel room for your date. The women in those flyers are mostly models. The women who show up from all but the highest-priced services are attractive but more ordinary-looking women.
If you call up the number in the brochure and ask for a specific girl you found there, the service may tell you she’s not available, but that they can send you someone similar. And they will try to send you someone close to that type. Sometimes they’ll just send someone similar without telling you in advance. But whether they tell you or not, you should be as clear as possible on the phone about what type of woman you’re looking for. If it’s important to you that she wear stockings and a garter belt, be sure to say that too.
Whether you call up a service or an independent, the woman who answers the phone will usually ask where you’re staying, including the room number, and the name you’re registered under at the hotel. Then they will call you back at your room to verify that you’re really you and not a prank caller. This also provides a degree of safety to the woman.
