Orlando Sex Guide advises where to find sex, working girls, prostitution, street hookers, brothels, red-light districts, sex shops, prostitutes, erotic massage parlors, strip clubs and escorts in Orlando, Florida, United States of America.

Orlando is a city in the central region of the U.S. state of Florida. It is the county seat of Orange County, and the center of the Greater Orlando metropolitan area. According to the 2010 US Census, the city had a population of 238,300, making Orlando the 79th largest city in the United States of America.

Sex and Prostitution in Orlando

Florida laws define prostitution as the "giving or receiving of the body for sexual activity for hire." The state describes "sexual activity" as a wide range of sexual activities. Florida sets criminal charges for a number of offenses related to prostitution. It is unlawful to participate in prostitution itself. The state also prohibits assignations, which are meetings or appointments arranged for the purpose of prostitution. State law also forbids solicitation -- acts to persuade or convince another person to participate in prostitution -- and the purchase of prostitution services. State law also criminalizes the operation of a service offering prostitution and the availability of a building or other premises for prostitution. In addition, Florida prohibits procurement, also known as pandering and more commonly known as "pimping," during which an individual persuades or hires another person to engage in prostitution, or offers prostitution services performed by another person.

Red Light Districts

There is no Red-light district in Orlando, but the 'Orange Blossom Trail between Hwy 50 and I-4 is kind of one at the day and night, because there are so many streetwalkers.

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

Where else in Orlando, or even the state of Florida, will you find hookers sharing the same sidewalk as international tourist throwing away their money at the largest shopping mall in Central Florida? Where else would you find a three-star strip club sitting right next to a Walmart? Where else will you find a pimp yelling at it's prostitute in front of a McDonalds? Only on South Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando.

While the street prostitution is still popular in Orlando, there are more girls working indoors today at the private apartments and massage parlors than on the streets.

Street Hookers

A Neo-burlesque stripper
  • Orange Blossom Trail is primarily the spot to find street walkers. It is a highway that is long and the cops can't keep their eyes on all of it. The police usually do stings for tricks and hoz around the holiday weekends for tourist reasons. They usually do set ups all the way down towards O.B.T. By the Florida mall.
  • Most hookers stay working the side streets and are almost half naked. Usually out of town hookers will work more towards the end of O.B.T. Where the motels are. Watch out for some girls from California, they often overcharge and don't give you what you want!
  • Local FL black ghetto sluts with big booty - some are young and you can find them working by where they live. The neighborhoods by Gore St. And Parramore Ave. usually have teen girls slutty themselves for only 20$. Most of the young girls don't make you wear a condom either. Another great neighborhood to find some phat ass would be around Pine Hills area. West Colonial Drive and John Young Pkwy. Make sure that the girls are full aged!
  • Orlando has actually some quite hot black streetwalkers. Most have nice watermelon asses if they are not using crack and loosing all off their weight. There are also some nice white chicks. Just make sure you don´t get in to the bad situation if you fuck drug user. Average charge is $50-$100 for a fuck, but you could get bargain deal for as low as $20!

Good spots to find hookers

  • Orange Blossom Trail
  • Corner of Broadway / US1 and Blue Heron.

Usually if you see advertisements such as body soap massage, nuru gel massage, neotantra, lingam massage or sensual massage, you can be almost sure you will get a happy ending at that massage place.

When you ask what the price is for a session and if they mention that additional tipping may take place in the room, then this is a possible hint.

Cost for a 1 hour massage is usually between $40 and $80. You will also need to tip the masseuse for extra services and tips are between $20 and $150.

City of Orlando has about 50 active massage parlours.

Brothels and Sex Clubs

Want to show your business here? Get Started Now!

Nevada is the only U.S. jurisdiction to allow some legal prostitution. Currently eight counties in Nevada have active bordellos (these are all rural counties); as of June–July 2008 there were 28 legal brothels in Nevada. Prostitution outside the licensed brothels is illegal throughout Nevada.

Many massage businesses in Orlando, FL operate as commercial front brothels claiming to offer legitimate services such as oil massage, acupuncture, and other therapeutic, health, and spa services, but in fact offer commercial sex to customers.

Women in brothels disguised as massage businesses typically live on-site where they are coerced into providing commercial sex to up to a 10 men a day and sometimes 7 days a week. These type of erotic massage businesses frequently operate in strip malls, office buildings, and sometimes, residential homes, in urban, suburban, and rural areas in across the United States. Many of the Asian massage and bodywork salons operate like this.

Stigma

This place is easy to miss because it only has a small door opening on the main bar and club strip downtown. It's like a tiny slip of a doorway between two other loud bumping night clubs.
17 S Orange Ave

The legal status of striptease varies considerably among the various jurisdictions of the United States of America.

Many U.S. jurisdictions have various laws related to striptease, nudity in public and related issues. For example, the "six foot rule" requires strippers to maintain a six-foot distance from customers while performing nude or topples. This rule does not apply when in a bikini or other work outfit, but is indicative of the level of scrutiny prevailing in some jurisdictions on dancer-customer interaction. Other rules forbid "complete nudity". In some parts of the United States, laws forbid exposure of female nipples, but does not apply if a stripper wears pasties.

Fully Nude and Topless Clubs

In several parts of the United States, local laws classify strip clubs as either topless or fully nude. Strippers in topless clubs can expose their breasts, but not their genitals. Strippers typically perform in a G-string and, depending on local laws, may be required to wear pasties covering their nipples. Fully nude clubs may be subject to additional requirements such as restrictions on alcohol sales or no-touch rules between customers and strippers.

To get around these rules two "separate" strip clubs—one topless and one fully nude—may open adjacent to one another. In a small number of states and jurisdictions, where it is legal for alcohol to be consumed but not for alcohol to be sold, some clubs allow customers to bring their own beverages.

These are known as BYOB clubs.

Independent Contractors

In the U.S., striptease dancers are generally classified as independent contractors. While a few smaller strip clubs may pay a weekly wage, for the most part all of a dancer's income is derived from tips and other fees they collect from clients. In most strip clubs, dancers have to pay a "stage fee" or "house fee" to work a given shift. In addition, most strip bars take a percentage of each private dance. It is customary—and often required in the United States—for dancers to also pay a "tip out", which is money (either a set fee or a percentage of money earned) paid to staff members of clubs, such as house moms, make-up artists, DJs, servers, bartenders, and bouncers, at the end of their shift.

Touching of Strippers

Touching of strippers is banned in many states. However, some dancers and some clubs condone touching of strippers during private dances. This touching often includes the fondling of breasts, buttocks, and in rare cases vulvae. In some locales, dancers may give a customer a "lap dance", whereby the stripper grinds against the customer's crotch while he is fully clothed in an attempt to arouse him or bring him to climax.

Swinger clubs, lifestyle clubs and sex clubs are formal or informal groups that organize sex-related activities or establishments where patrons can engage in sex acts with other patrons. Swinger club differs from a whore house in that, while sex club patrons typically pay an annual membership and nightly entrance fee, they only have an opportunity to have sex with other patrons, and not with sex workers employed by the establishment.

Since there is no relevant federal legislation, the legal requirements and legality of swingers, sex and lifestyle clubs varies from state to state and even from locality to locality. Zoning laws regulating proximity to schools or religious buildings, local norms, and other factors have all played a role. Most swingers and sexclubs in the U.S. do not serve alcohol because of restrictive state requirements associated with a liquor license, but some allow customers to bring their own (BYOB).

Sex Shops and Adult Stores

Want to show your business here? Get Started Now!

If you don’t feel like visiting or cannot find any local sex shops in Orlando, you can easily order adult products from Online Sex Shop.

A series of Supreme Court decisions in the 1960s (based on the First Amendment to the United States Constitution) generally legalized adult shops, while still allowing states and local jurisdictions to limit them through zoning. Into the 1980s, nearly all adult shops in USA were oriented to an almost entirely male clienteles, but today there are also sex shops mainly for female clienteles. Many sex shops in 1980s included adult video arcades, and nearly all were designed so that their customers could not be seen from the street: they lacked windows, and the doors often involved an L-shaped turn so that people on the street could not see in. While that type of sex shops continue to exist, since the end of the 1970s there has been an huge evolution in the industry. Two new types of stores arose in that period, both of them are often (though not always, especially not in more socially conservative communities) more open to the street and more welcoming to ladies than the older sex shops. On the one hand, there are adult stores tending toward "softer" product lines. On the other hand, there are adult stores that evolved specifically out of a sex-positive culture. The latter class of stores tend to be very consciously community-oriented businesses, sponsoring lecture series and being actively involved in sex-related health issues, etc.

In Orlando you can find plenty of sex shops.

Love Hotels and Short Time Hotels

Want to show your business here? Get Started Now!

Love hotels are not common in USA, because there's just no market for it. Most young adults in the U.S. live away from their parents, so it is not awkward to bring a lover back to their home. In Asian countries, where land is very limited and apartments are very expensive, love hotels are a cheap alternative to regular hotels that cater to a group very much in need of the service.

Nightclubs and Bars

Want to show your business here? Get Started Now!

There are many great bars, dance and nightclubs in United States and most clubs have darkened dance floors and loud music.

There are also gentleman´s clubs and nightclubs that do not wish to be called strip club. But these venues do still have exotic dancers or escorts at the clubs.

In general gambling is legal only in Atlantic City, Reno and Las Vegas, but several gambling locations also exist on American Indian reservations or waterways, as their property is not subjected to federal law.

The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law, a sexual orientation law and public policy think tank, estimates that 9 million (about 3.8%) of Americans identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (2011). The institute also found that bisexuals make up 1.8% of the population, while 1.7% are gay or lesbian. Transgender adults make up 0.3% of the population.

Among the nation's 50 largest metropolitan areas, San Francisco has the highest percentage of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) at 6.2%, according to a new survey.

In Portland, Oregon and Austin, Texas, 5.4% and 5.3% of the population identifies as LGBT, respectively, well above the national average of 3.6%. Salt Lake City, Utah also made the top 10, at 4.7% — a somewhat surprising find, given Utah's reputation as one of the most conservative states in the union. As the survey notes, however, Utah remains one of the only states to have passed a law prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation.

An estimated 3.5% of adults in the United States identify as lesbian, gay,or bisexual and an estimated 0.3% of adults are transgender.

It should be noted that some transgender individuals may identify as lesbian, gay, or bi-sexual. So it is not possible to make a precise combined LGBT estimate.

The analyses suggest that there are more than 8 million adults in the U.S. who are LGB, comprising 3.5% of the adult population. This is split nearly evenly between lesbian / gay and bisexual identified individuals, 1.7% and 1.8%, respectively. There are also nearly 700,000 transgender individuals in the US. Given these findings, it seems reasonable to assert that approximately 9 million Americans identify as LGBT.

Many of transgender patients express that coming out as 'trans' now is what coming out as gay was in the 1980s.

Transgender women are the fastest-growing population of HIV-positive people in the USA. A 2009 report from the National Institutes of Health found that nearly a third of transgenders in United States are HIV-positive. The study also indicated that many transgender women may not know their HIV status, due to a series of cultural, social, and economic barriers.

Transgender women of color are at an even greater risk for HIV infection than their white rivals. The NIH study noted that African-American and Latina transgender women had the highest HIV rates; among those transgender women of color surveyed, more than 56% of black trans women were HIV-positive, and Latina trans women had an HIV infection rate of 16%.

TS/TV/TG and CD prostitute prices vary a lot in USA. Transsexual street prostitutes usually ask about $20 to $100 for different type of sex services, but this is very risky business as many of them use also drugs and pickpocketing and muggings are their hobbies. Shemale escorts in USA who advertise online and newspapers ask usually from $80 to 250 for sex, while high-end t-girl escorts ask up to a $500 per hour.

You may also find some Asian ladyboys working at Asian massage salons, but this can be quite hard.

Sexual Services for Women

Market for male sex services has grown a lot in the last five years in USA and female career professionals in 30s and 40s are among the ones paying for sex. Female sex tourism is also a growing industry as many of the American women go for sex holidays to Caribbean and European countries.

Common price for Male escorts in United States is $100 to $300 per hour.

Sleeping and Girl Friendly Hotels

Escort friendly hotels in USA do not call them self Love Hotels or Girl friendly Hotels, but we all know what an hourly rate room is for. Paying one night at a motel for a midnight encounter is also pretty common and such a scene is common in United States. Some of the high-end hotels may give you a trouble if you bring a street whore to your room and that is why motel is often the best option.

Stay Safe

Extreme Temperatures

Never leave children, pets, or the elderly in a parked car for any length of time! Due to high temperature for most of the year, the interior of a parked car can easily heat to lethal temperatures in a short amount of time. During the summer, the interior of a parked car can reach 130-170ºF (55-75ºC) in just 15 minutes, regardless of the color of the exterior or interior, or whether the windows are open a small amount. You not only risk death, but it is illegal and the consequences are taken VERY seriously, including thousands in fines and even imprisonment.

Like most cities in America, there are certain areas of Orlando which are more dangerous than others. Some areas travelers should be cautious of are:

  • Parramore District, area in downtown Orlando is a location where a lot of the area's homeless population congregates and crime rates are higher in this area.
  • Orange Blossom Trail, south of Sand Lake Road is known to be a a bit of an unofficial red light district. Drug and prostitution related crime is common here. Prostitution is not legal in Orlando, so you could spend a night in jail if you decide to indulge.
  • Pine Hills, located around Silver Star Road and Pine Hills Road west of John Young Parkway. This is a lower income area that has struggled with high crime rates. The Greyhound bus station is in Pine Hills and is a place to use caution.

While it is unlikely that any one individual would experience serious crime in these areas, tourists stand out in these areas, and can unwittingly do things that can make them targets for criminal behavior, so it is sensible to stay away.

While crime in the Orlando area is not particularly high, with the annual tourists far outnumbering the regional population (~2million), a substantial amount of local crime ends up being directed at tourists. The most common crimes are theft of items from cars and hotels, so following common sense travel precautions are particularly important in an area like Orlando.

  • Never leave valuable items in your car unattended, get any purchased items to your hotel room as soon as possible.
  • Never leave small children unattended for any length of time, especially at a pool. Most hotel pools do not have lifeguards.
  • Hotel room invasions do occur, especially open-air hotel and motel rooms when the victim leaves their hotel room unlocked and not dead-bolted. When you are in a hotel room, always lock your doors behind you, even if you expect someone in a minute or two.

While hurricanes attract most of the attention, the proximity to two coasts also brings frequent, and sometimes dangerous, thunderstorms. These occur nearly every day during the rainy season from mid-June through September. While some days it may only rain for 10 minutes, other thunderstorms can last for hours and its not unheard of for one location to remain dry while another spot 10 miles away gets a couple inches of rain on an afternoon. The summer thunderstorms are the main reason that Florida is the lightning capital of the western hemisphere. During these storms it is best to remain indoors due to the danger posed by frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. Golfers are especially vulnerable. A couple of dozen people are killed each year by lightning in Florida and many more spend much time receiving treatment for lightning strikes.

Pets are better off left with a friend or in a kennel. If you choose to bring your pet, note that most theme parks and hotels prohibit pets but may provide kennels for a fee. Also note above about interior temperatures in parked cars.

For truly the safest experience, consider staying on Disney-owned property. If this is not possible, the area of Lake Buena Vista would be a preferred location. In addition to its accessibility to attractions, it offers a much safer, less urbanized area for comfort.
