The city of Vancouver is a popular location for tourists to Canada and offers a hub of thriving entertainment venues for the capital of British Columbia.
Whilst the city is spectacular by day with its glorious backdrop of the North Shore Mountains, it is by night that Vancouver springs to life. As far as adult entertainment goes, the city has more than its fair share of strip clubs, massage parlours, adult spas, sex shops, peep shows and exotic nightclubs.
The prostitution industry that supports the by-trade of all these venues is thought to number over three thousand with women, men and trannies all providing services from light relief to full sex.
Street Prostitutes in Vancouver
First of all, please note that street prostitution is illegal in Vancouver. Whilst we are going to discuss some of the openly known ‘trade’ secrets, we strongly discourage readers from soliciting or seeking sex on the streets.
Vancouver has a huge sex industry that is growing all the time and, of the few thousand hookers, around 500 professionals working the streets. By far the most popular area for those looking to find a prostitute is in the Downtown Eastside area (East Hastings).
‘Street walkers’ are found after dark right through the night but a handful can usually be found during the day as well.
It is an area of poverty with a higher than average crime rate. Those who want to avoid wandering around for too long usually head straight to the corner of Hastings and Main.
As the sex trade grows, mini-districts have been establishing themselves around the city so there are other options other than East Hastings.
However, as these areas have fewer prostitutes servicing them, customers are not always guaranteed to find a hooker when they want one.
Anywhere that has a small density of body-rub parlours, sex shops of strip joints will invariably attract street walkers as well. Abbotsford, Kingsway and West Side all have their own pockets of hookers.
Prices range considerably but accounts suggest that customers can expect to pay around $30 for a blowjob or hand relief and up to $80 for a full service.
Punters typically find that these workers are more likely to negotiate on price when the weather is cold so heading to the streets to warm-up in winter is a good way to save some money.
The city is blessed with being one of the most ethnically diverse in North America and this is reflected in the hookers that work under cover as masseurs.
You can find erotic massage parlours across Vancouver but the majority of them are concentrated in the Metrotown and Downtown areas.
There are speciality parlours with Asian beauties, shemales or South American whores. The pick of the bunch is said to be the Platinum Club where you can get an excellent massage from stunning ladies along with a lot extra for your money. The venue is pricey but is well-managed, clean and with a welcoming atmosphere.
Around 60-80% of prostitutes in Vancouver offer their services online or via an escort agency.
There are plenty of opportunities for these ladies to get business and between them all there is something for every occasion. Ranging in age from fresh-faced graduates to milfs and cougars, of all ethnic origins the classifieds section of Craigslist, Backpage and Locanto are a great place to browse.
Many of the women will arrange to meet in a hotel but some do conduct their ‘business’ from their own place of residence. Travel can sometimes cost a little more so do enquire if your escort has somewhere to meet. Costs vary but you can expect to pay between $100-300 unless you are specifically searching for a premium escort or have something unusual in mind.
The free newspaper of Vancouver, The Metro, also has a classifieds section as well as a good online directory. You can find these free papers on most street corners.
There are several larger strip clubs in Vancouver all operating slightly differing policies when it comes to the level of contact they allow. Caddyshack, No 5 Orange and Paramount Gentleman’s Club are all worth a bit of negotiating in during a private dance.
There are no guarantees at the strip clubs but many of the strippers are known to work extra on the side.
