Local Prostitution and Hooker Hot Spots

Picking up prostitutes on the street is illegal. We highly recommend you avoid soliciting for sex.

Nonetheless, it remains common.

Some of Toronto’s hot spots for prostitution and street hookers include:

  • Church St and Carlton St
  • Maitland St and Jarvis St
  • Shuter St
  • River St
  • Jarvis St
  • Wellesley St
  • Dundas and Sherbourne (known for what is described as low quality ‘street whores’)
  • College and Jarvis

Reports suggest there are plenty of trans and shemale prostitutes around Maitland and Jarvis.

The popular red light area of Yonge St is also known for having male prostitutes later in the evening.

How much does a hooker cost in Toronto?

While there is no official pricing (obviously), it’s said that you can get full service for $50 to $100, or oral sex for $20 to $50. This will depend on the calibre of the hooker, the john’s negotiation skills, and the quality of the area.

Needless to say, hiring a Toronto street whore is a dangerous and risky business that can land you in jail. It’s not just the law that you have to worry about. The hookers on the street are much more likely to be carrying STDs or STIs.

If you are serious about paying for adult services in the GTA, you will be much safer using an escort — either through an agency or by booking a reputable ‘freelance’ call girl.

Toronto Brothels

As of 2018, there are no legal brothels in Toronto.

However, the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision to strike down three provisions that target prostitution has led to much speculation that there may soon be licensed brothels in Toronto.

It didn’t take long for Dennis Hof, owner of several legendary adult establishment in Nevada, to announce his intentions to open a brand new brothel in Toronto.

Despite the current lack of licensing, it is fairly common for escorts and call girls to use makeshift brothels (or bawdy houses) in the form of shared apartments and condos.

When you see escorts advertising private locations for ‘incalls’ in Toronto, this may mean her private residence. But it may also mean a residence shared between her and one or more friends who are active in the business.

Such a form of pooling accommodation means there are potentially dozens of unofficial brothels around Ontario.

Rumours persist that brothels will soon be found over on Toronto Island, where there has been a slew of pitches for an ‘official’ red light district.

Sex on the Classifieds and Personals

What’s the cheapest way to find Toronto sex that doesn’t involve hiring a hooker?

(Well, other than seeking a loving committed relationship!)

For most people, it’s to use the various classifieds and personals sites that litter the web.

The following communities are rife with adult listings where you can respond to user-posted ads all over Ontario:

Backpage Toronto — Includes everything from escorts, to body rubs, to strippers, to personals ads from horny Canadians looking to meet up for sex.

Craigslist Casual Encounters — Craigslist is the most famous classified site in the world. The Toronto casual encounters section is filled with more indecent proposals than you could ever hope to tick off in one sordid lifetime.

Now Toronto Adult Listings — Yes, even Now Toronto caters to the adult market with a variety of ads for both paid companionship and casual encounters. They even have a section for domination and fetishes. Ontario kinks galore.

Locanto Personals — Locanto has a personals sub-section dubbed ‘casual encounters’. It is perhaps fitting that the ads posted by men outnumber those by women almost 15 to 1. Then again, at least it’s a realistic percentage…

The truth is that even by using a personals site, you are still going to find yourself mingling with sex workers, prostitutes, escorts and agencies acting on behalf of each party.

These sites are a popular way to hookup in Toronto, but the result is by no means guaranteed.

There are obvious safety risks in the concept of two strangers meeting for sex.
