London is one of the most influential and important cities in the world. In the last twenty years, London has been one of the leading cities for adult entertainment, moving away from street walkers in Soho to now being a city filled with bars, restaurants, clubs and even dungeons designed for the sole purpose of adult entertainment.
In this in-depth guide to adult entertainment in London, we explore the venues designed for men, women and couples who are looking for venues to indulge in their adult desires. We look at strip clubs, sex parties, swinger clubs, BDSM dungeons and escort agencies in the capital and the laws surrounding the sex industry.
Is Prostitution Legal in London?
Prostitution is widely regarded as one of the world’s oldest professions which dates back to Roman Times. To this day, prostitution is still legal in the UK, but there are still rules surrounding the soliciting of sex. To avoid breaking the law, you must not:
- Solicit sex in public.
- Kerb crawl.
- Running or own a brothel.
- Run a sex ring.
- Knowingly pay for sex with someone under the age of 18
If you run an escort agency, it is also against the law to have a driver take the girls to meet a client and force the girls to meet clients.
London Escorts Scene
In a recent study, figures found that there were around 80000 female escorts in the UK and of that number, 30000 of these ladies were based in London. London has one of the most thriving escort scenes in the world, which means that clients in the city have a huge choice of different call girls to book.
Soho is regarded as London’s red-light district, Chelsea has recently been in the news with escorts being found living in the Chelsea Cloisters and districts such as Bayswater, Earls Court, Paddington and Park Lane are popular areas to meet escorts.
For punters to be able to find where an escort is working, it is very common to use either an agency or directory to arrange a booking. Independent escorts will advertise their cheaper services on directories, compared to professional call girls who are represented by reputable agencies.
An example of a London escort agency is London Deluxe, who promote London escorts, pornstars and mistresses in the capital, with a great client satisfaction rate.
