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’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.
