European Sex Tourism
Sex tourism is a multi-billion dollar industry that spans the entire globe. Men and women of all sexual orientations take part in sex tourism and one of the main places they choose to go is Europe. In today’s guide we shall look in more detail at European sex tourism.
About European Sex Tourism
European sex tourism has been around for hundreds of years and has seen consistent growth ever since. Thanks to the internet, cheaper transport options and technological advances the European sex tourism industry is bigger than ever.
Europe is a very diverse continent and as such also has a very diverse sex tourism industry. The sex services you will find in one country of Europe may differ drastically from those in another. One of the huge differences between European sex tourism is the price and quality of the sex services available.
Europe is known around the world as being a very sexual destination – with the red light district of Amsterdam being on most people’s to-go list! Sex in most European countries is not frowned upon – but praised and encouraged. However, there are still laws and regulations that surround European sex tourism that we shall discuss later on.
Popular European Sex Tourism Destinations
Practically every country in Europe has some sort of sex tourism industry, however there are some destinations that attract more sex tourists than the others. We shall look at some of these popular European sex tourism destinations below.
De Wallen, Amsterdam
De Wallen is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Amsterdam, and is a sex tourism Mecca for sex tourists all over. There are prostitutes of all sexual orientations here and more than enough to choose from! There are also sex shops, peep shows, sex theatres and even an Erotic Museum!
The only downside to choosing De Wallen as your European sex tourism destination is that it is very touristy and busy, which can put ‘serious’ European sex tourists off.
Situated in the heart of Germany is one of the world’s favorite European sex tourism destinations – Reeperbahn. During certain times of the day street prostitution is legal in Reeperbahn – and it is also home to Germany’s only legal live sex act! Just like in Amsterdam, there are a wide range of sexual services to offer European sex tourists – ranging from strip clubs, sex shops, sex cabarets, nightclubs and more.
Rue St. Denis, Paris
What better place to go for European sex tourism than the city of love! There is no more love in the air than there is on Rue St. Denis. With dozens of sex shops, prostitutes and the world-famous Moulin Rouge – there is nothing that Rue St. Denis can’t offer you.
All sexual orientations and genders are catered for and it is a popular destination for sex tourists looking for a classier sex tourism vacation. Prices can be significantly higher here than other European sex tourism destinations, however the quality is generally much better
Other European Sex Tourism Destinations
While we’ve only looked at a few of the best European sex tourism destinations, there are dozens more to choose from! Practically every city in Europe has its own sex tourism industry – some bigger and better than others. If you are looking for a bargain then Eastern Europe, such as Prague, is a very popular destination for European sex tourists.
Laws Surrounding European Sex Tourism
Before setting off on a European sex tourism vacation, you should always research and understand the laws surrounding the sex industry in the countries you visit.
Prostitution is not legal in every country in Europe. It is legal in all countries in Western Europe; however far Eastern Europe and parts of Scandinavia have made it illegal. The laws can be quite complex and vary between countries. For example, in Sweden and Norway it is not illegal to be a prostitute but it is illegal to be a client of a prostitute.
Another important thing to take into account is the age of consent when taking part in European sex tourism. Age of consent varies between countries ranging from 18 as the highest age down to 14 in some countries.
