Local Prostitution and Hooker Hot Spots

Picking up prostitutes on the street is illegal in Ottawa and we strongly recommend you avoid this option.

There are no red light districts as such in Ottawa. Instead there are neighborhoods known as ‘strolls’ where a few dozen women may be found working on slow nights. Because most hookers now have access to free WiFi and cheap cell phones, most business is conducted using online advertising through the personals and classifieds.

However, prostitution is still prevalent around Merivale Road/Kirkwood Avenue, Gladstone Avenue nr Mechanicsville, Montreal Road, Byward Market/Dalhousie Street.

The trade is strictly frowned upon by local residents, and a police presence is to be expected.

Our best advice? Stay off the streets.

How Much Does a Hooker Cost in Ottawa?

Reports suggest street prostitutes charge around $40-100 for full service with oral costing $20-60.

If that sounds cheap, it’s because the risks are severe.

Ottawa Brothels

Brothels are illegal in Ottawa and you won’t find bawdy houses in Canada like you can in the US.

Instead, working women use the cover of massage parlours (also known as body rub centres) for providing services. These centres charge a door fee which covers the cost of the room hire (usually payable by credit or debit card) and the services performed once the door is closed are paid for in cash as a gratuity.

There are several licensed body rub centres across the city from high end luxury spas to budget rub and tug centres. Prices (and quality of lady) vary depending on the venue but reports suggest you can expect to pay an average of $40+ ‘donation’ for a handjob, $80+ for a blowjob and $150+ for full service.

Finding Sex on Ottawa’s Classifieds and Personals

Classified sites are popular in Ottawa for finding adult services, or for simply looking to hook up with other horny locals.

The former is obviously a paid option whilst the latter may provide you with an opportunity for free sex.

Local escort services range from professional women who charge high end fees for companionship services, whilst others are street hookers with a cheap cell phone looking to stay off the streets at night.

Then there are students and bored housewives looking to supplement their income. Some of the classifieds cater for fetishists, shemale lovers and couples. It’s a mix of the paid and the free, with the majority of listings being for paid services.

With most of these classifieds, it’s important to remember that because they are 100% free to use, the listings are unverified so take the details with a pinch of salt and with an air of caution.

LeoList, the Canadian version of Craigslist, delivers a whole range of female personals listings for the Ottawa area. There are hundreds of ads with the majority of them being posted by escorts. There is plenty of range in these listings including quite a few more mature ladies. If you search deeply enough, you may be able to find some adverts from those looking to hook up for free. Good luck, though, it will be slim pickings!

Craigslist casual encounters section has hundreds of listing in Ottawa and though most are for paid services such as escorts and erotic massage there are also genuine ads from women looking for no strings attached fun. The site is synonymous with the hook up and, if you are patient, you can definitely find real ladies looking for free sex.

Locanto has some specific categories such as fetish encounters, couples and BDSM which narrow your results down a little if this is something you are interested in. Though the site has a lot fewer ads than Craigslist and Backpage there are still some interesting and unique ads.

ClassifiedAds is a repository of personal ads and has far fewer escorts than the others we’ve mentioned. The downside to the site is that you can only use keywords to narrow your search and the site also picks up some ads that aren’t even in your area. You need patience to get the best out of this site but the benefits are there if you persevere.
