New York City

The sex guide to: prostitutes; brothels; red light districts; massage parlors; strip clubs; swingers clubs; sex shops; adult theaters; and escorts in New York City, New York, USA.

Sex Scene and Prostitution in New York City

The New York City prostitute charge for sex depends on where you found her and how you found her. A street prostitute gets $75 for traditional intercourse (25% goes to her pimp, 30% on weekends), while a high-end escort can demand as much as $4,000 for her companionship (her agency gets half). If you want a hand job down near Wall Street it will run you $225; in The Bronx it’s $75, plus a shot at the bar.

Note: The prostitutes will almost always carry with them an extra set of panties, because men will pay for souvenirs. They’ll almost never carry large bills or small bills — you’re not getting change no matter what.
