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 brothels in Nevada are 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 also cover brothel prices and how to negotiate for the services you want (click here).
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.
Just sit alone in most any bar on the Strip late at night and you’ll be approached.
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
Intercourse plus oral sex will generally cost you $500 in Vegas with a woman who is truly independent
The price for bare minimum services may run you $100 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 $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.
