Providence 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 Providence, Rhode Island, United States of America.

Providence is the state capital and largest city in Rhode Island, as well as the third largest city in New England. Formerly an industrial bastion of organized crime, Providence's Renaissance has created new parks and attractions and brought emphasis back to its historic roots. Downcity events, historic vistas, eclectic districts such as College Hill and Federal Hill, and a great nightlife make Providence a worthwhile tourist destination.

Sex and Prostitution in Providence

Prostitution in Rhode Island was outlawed in 2009. On November 3, 2009, Governor Donald Carcieri signed into law a bill which makes the buying and selling of sexual services a crime.

Prostitution was legal in Rhode Island between 1980 and 2009 because there was no specific statute to define the act and outlaw it, although associated activities were illegal, such as street solicitation, running a brothel, and pimping. With the passing of the new law, Nevada remains the only US state which allows legal prostitution.

Red Light Districts

There are no legal Red-light districts in Providence like there are in Frankfurt and Amsterdam.

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

Granted, every city has the massage parlour that is known for a little tug and pull and possibly a bit more. If you have ever been to one you know the routine, but if you do not here is the rundown.

When you enter some parlours have the ladies lounging around in a common area or living room. Most of the girls are from South Korea, Japan, the Philippines or China. Sometimes there may be European girls or Mexicans in the mix as well. If there is no common area each lady will come in and introduce herself.

The owner then introduces the girls that are working. They will guide you to the back of the studio and lead you to a room with a bed, where they will ask you for the house fee. This house fee usually runs $40 to $80. This is where you can indicate which girl you are interested in.

Be aware, some massage parlours may have their own order which decides which girl gets the next client. As well if there is only one girl free, then you do not really have a choice. However, if you are not happy with the girl you get and you see that there is others available do not be afraid to inquire. The owners are usually polite and accommodating for the most part and want you to have a good "experience". Likewise if you do not see anyone that interests you, feel free to leave. If you have already paid the house fee they are usually willing to refund it.

Once you are settled into the room, the girl is sent in and will start by chatting with you. Usually they will rub your back a while and then once she ask you to turn around she will touch accidentally your cock and proceed to ask if you want any extra services.

Suffice to say that the more generous you are with the tip, the more generous she will be with the time you spend together.

Many of the massage parlors have been closed in Providence during the recent year.

The ordinance, which sailed unanimously through the City Council near the end of 2014, requires that businesses and personnel offering body works obtain licenses annually from the city. It bans sexual contact and requires both personnel and customer to remain covered. All personnel must be over 18 and provide identification, a past employment history and any criminal convictions or license revocations. Business owners must provide the same information and the identities of all employees, and prove that the business is compliant with all city codes.

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.

  • Club Body Center, 257 Weybosset St, tel.: +1 401-274-0298

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).

Rhode Island has amazing clubs running on small donations. On-premises action is almost always allowed, so there are no need to spend money on a hotel room! Singles men allowed being sponsored by a couple.

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.

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.

Providence is a very small city in a very small state, but its gay scene is as active as many of the larger east coast cities. Three schools -- Brown, Rhode Island Institute of Design, and Johnson & Wales -- pull in a high percentage of open-minded, artistic and openly gay people, creating a friendly, diverse and tolerant community. Providence is the first capital city in the US with an openly gay mayor, David Cicilline, and although Rhode Island is one of the few New England states that does not officially recognize same-sex partnerships yet, there is a liberal social atmosphere.

Providence's night scene is hip and often cutting edge. Girls will be glad to know that Providence has a friendly and supportive lesbian scene, with quite a few venues dedicated to lady performers. Providence is generally less stuffy than other historic New England towns and, unlike Boston, where they have been shuttered, it is home to several bathhouses and strip bars. Boston's loss is Providence's gain, and you'll see eager men in these spaces from all over New England as a result.

Male prostitution is quite common on the streets of Rhode Islands. Most male street sex workers are straight drug users who are just trying to make money for drugs. These men solicit on the street corners and adult bookstores.

You can find t-girl prostitutes from the internet who usually charge $120-$200 for half hour or $200-$300 for one hour. There are quite many street level male prostitutes in Providence and some of them dress up like a women also.

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

Providence is a relatively safe city for its size, though proper caution and common sense should not be abandoned. The downtown area can be dodgy at night, especially around Kennedy Plaza and Washington Street. The club areas on the outskirts of downtown have also been known to draw some issues, though most are gang related. Another area to avoid at night is the Camp Street area of the East Side. There is some known gang activity and there has been some violent behavior in the past. Also, late nights on Federal Hill are a great place to watch to drunken idiots beat each other up under the guise of Italian pride (though this is more in the vein of "Jersey Shore" Italian and not of that that first inhabited the city decades ago), so exercise caution whilst in the bar and club area of this historic neighborhood.

As far as violent crime goes, it is best to avoid South Providence and the Olneyville neighborhoods of the city. There is little reason for most tourists to go to these locations, though the city's three main hospitals are relegated to the South Side. Olneyville's New York System was featured on Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate" series, and while there are two other locations within driving distance of Providence (Rhode Island is the smallest state, after all), a quick visit here to get a few hot dogs will not result in a problem unless you decide to walk around the neighborhood a bit and it's 1:00 in the morning.
