Barcelona – a city of opportunity?
Barcelona has an excellent variety of sex orientated facilities,
those which range from great service and affordable prices to
dangerous and cheap sex. Due to Spain colonising most of South
America, there are a great deal of South American women (and men)
working in Spain - it offers them a great deal more than their own
countries and is therefore a very popular move. So, you get the
flavours of Peru, Columbia, Argentina, Uruguay, etc. all in one
place! How very convenient.
The public transport system here is excellent, with the Metro taking
you any place you might want to go. You can stop by at the fabulous
Sagrada Familia, look at many other amazing churches, and
interesting artworks around the city. Grab a metro map and your set
- they usually have a full street and tourist map on the back so you
can find your way around. Barcelona is a tourist city, so it is
almost impossible to get lost. There are many parks, squares and
plazas to sit and people watch if this tickles your fancy.
Spain is famous for its Tapas, snack-like gourmet food which is
served in small portions and is very tasty. You can get these
everywhere, with a beer – very Spanish.
Barcelona is Europe's
number one place to rob or be robbed. Everyone we've ever met
that's been to Barcelona has a robbery story from La Ramblas or
the hostel or anywhere else in the city. People had passports,
wallets, cameras, backpacks, money, clothing and shoes stolen.
Spanish thieves are very talented.
What are the people like?
Spanish people are very friendly, despite all their reasonably
snobbish neighbours. After only 40 years of freedom from Frankie The
Dictator, things are still ironing themselves out here. The economy
is falling and the number of illegal South American and African
immigrants is steadily rising. The south of Spain is just 14km's
from Africa; if you were determined you could practically swim over.
The food is excellent, the people are very, very nice and the
landscape is beautiful. The sun shines most of the time, and
everyone is generally happy. They like a good party, and some of
their outrageous hair styles are constant sources of amusement and
envy - they have a sense of style which really makes you look twice.
The lack of American influence here is a breath of fresh air, and
the people have their own sense of style and flavours which are
unique to Spain. A great place for a holiday and a good destination
for the sex tourist.
The red light district - Las Ramblas.
A twenty minute walk up Las Ramblas on a Friday night will show you
what sort of colours and flavours you can choose from - this is the
red light district of Barcelona and is extremely busy and bursting
with activity. There are many strip clubs, brothels and street
walkers up this strip and surrounding blocks. It can be a daunting
area if you walk up the wrong lane, with drug dealers and thugs,
mostly sad looking people hiding down dark alleyways.
But, in the bright lights, there is much to see and it's relatively
safe. After all, your tourist dollar is as valuable here as any
where else - so long as you are the one handing it over. It's quite
easy to find a girl, but a pretty one is not so easy. Another better
option than Las Ramblas is Ramblas Catalunya - the girls are
prettier and there are fewer tourists.
The sex workers up the strip of Las Ramblas are generally an
interesting bunch to look at. They stand outside their clubs or just
hang around, waiting for a punter to join them in a hostel room,
small hotel room or stairwell. This strip goes all night long and
into the next morning most of the time, it never sleeps. There are
many street walkers out at night time, on any night of the week.
Most streets in the inner city lead to them one way or another, they
stand in small groups on corners. It is sometimes hard to discern
immediately if that is exactly what they are there for - they don't
really dress in a way that suggests their intention. It's not until
you walk past and wonder why else they are there, and notice some
men hanging around that you have to put two and two together. These
are not high class, and neither is the price. If in doubt, ask the
cabbies - they know everything, they have been through an Olympics!
The brothels here are like bars, you go in, talk to the girls or
meet them one by one, and buy an overpriced drink for them, of which
the girl gets a portion of the proceeds. So you basically pay to
speak with her, and then if you like the look of her, you go do your
business. You pay for the time you are with the girl, but you can
pay for individual services as well, depending on the club. Anything
with the word 'Club' in its title is usually a brothel.
They typically have a neon sign on the roof or out the front, but
they are never large signs. Around Gracia, there are a lot of such
clubs, though they are not of the highest quality - they can be a
little bit scummy though there are a number of very beautiful girls
working around here.
Excellent quality bordels can be found, with girls consistently
rated in the 7 - 10's, though you do need to find them. The yellow
pages offer you another avenue of finding clubs, just look for "Club
Nocturno", that will give you results sex related clubs, and will
exclude golf clubs etc. You can also look in "El Periodico" under
'Relax' or 'Contactos'.
These clubs allow girls a lot more 'freedom of feeling' than is
normally legally allowed in other developed countries like the USA
or Australia & New Zealand. There are numerous places to go for a
'look-see', try Las Ramblas or look up any sex magazine available at
the many magazine and newspaper stalls around Barcelona.
There is a bar called Kiss, where you can pay the ladies to do
whatever you want them to right there at the bar for the price of
expensive drinks (30 euros each). It is an interesting stop on a
weeknight if you don't mind watching others and being watched
getting a blow job in public! Unfortunately this bar is closed on
weekends, though there is another bar with lots of fun called
Baghdad where they have full sex onstage.
Men for Ladies
If you're looking for a nice Spanish boy, head to a club or a party.
These guys hang into the wee hours of the morning and always have a
good time. If you find yourself in a touristy district dancing in
clubs with no Spanish boys, don't feel bad substituting a tourist
for a Spaniard. Everyone who steps into the country is in a fabulous
mood so you're going to have a great time with anyone.
If you want your Spanish man to go away, it's probably because you
want to date his best friend or a member of his family. Just let
your boyfriend know what's on your mind and he'll handle it. He's
got an unbreakable bond with friends and family, so he's not going
to be too upset. If you ask nicely, you may even be able to date
There are a number of good websites with pictures of the girls who
are available. This is generally a safe bet, with few difficulties
arising apart from the usual problems of not getting what you asked
What can I expect to pay?
For a street walker you could pay as little as 10 euros, but you get
what you pay for. It is advisable not to shop in Las Ramblas,
because it can be very dangerous for a tipsy tourist, but also a
great deal of fun - so just watch out, if this is your thing. Keep a
minimum of cash on you, and make sure everything is locked securely
in your hotel safe. Between 20 and 100 euros is standard for
whatever services you may require.
In a brothel, expect to pay a bit more. Around 80 euros for an hour
is normal, for excellent quality, though be prepared to pay up to
250 euros (plus drinks), with a nice, clean room and a beautiful
girl. Times are a bit strange here, with clubs closing early, some
at 9pm, so don't be surprised if you end up getting kicked out early
or turning up at your favorite place to find the doors locked.
Is it legal? What about drugs?
Prostitution is perfectly legal and widely tolerated by the public
and authorities in Spain; the police are not interested in you
unless you are causing trouble. The clubs are very discreet, with no
big blaring signs or obvious trademarks apart from the neon signs.
If you are interested in buying some hash, the Indian's on the beach
all usually have some, just ask, or the Indian's at Las Ramblas.
It's fairly sure that they can get you anything you might require.
The working girls here are required by law, (after a number of
internationally broadcast deadly infections from clubs here in the
90's), to have what is called a Tarjeta de Salud, a health check
card. This 'certifies' them as being disease free. Take this how you
