Prostitution is 100% illegal in Las Vegas Clark County. However, you can still find plenty of adult entertainment in Vegas if you know where to look. In this guide to finding sex in Las Vegas, you will find links to legal brothels in Nevada as well as general advice to help you make the most of your Vegas stay when it comes to getting lucky.
The Old Fashioned Way: Long gone are the days when Las Vegas was considered just for guys. More and more, women are visiting and having their own “girl’s night out.” Some may even be looking for a “secret” Vegas vacation romance. Okay, so you know they are out there. Where do you go to meet them? Well, you first need to realize that Vegas is not much different than your own hometown. Most women are there to have fun with their friends and are not likely to be open to your advances, no matter how much you might try.
It is really a numbers game. If you talk to enough ladies, you will eventually score. Walk down The Strip and say hello. Hit the hotel bars, clubs, and lounges. It might be advisable to get out of the high-end hotels where all the “gold-diggers” are and hit the bars at some of the more low-key hotels. Think O’Sheas Pub, Casino Royale, Harrah’s, Downtown Vegas, etc. These places are known for cheap booze. Until a girl meets you and you start to pay for their drinks, they want a fun place with cheap drinks. You will also avoid running into escorts which we talk about in the next section. See our Single Guy’s Guide to Vegas for more tips on meeting women.
Escorts: Alright … you have decided you want a super hot chick, are willing to pay for it, and you have the cash and want no hassles. The Las Vegas phone book, or doing an online search will provide you with dozens of escort services. Yes, we said it is illegal. Yes, it is illegal. When they send a girl to you, no one is agreeing to sex. You are just agreeing to pay to have “Bambi” come to your room and maybe watch a movie together. Past that, what two grown adults do and bargain for stays in the room. The downside? If you get ripped off, you can’t really call the police and say “I hired a hooker” if you don’t get what you paid for. While safer than street prostitutes, you are going to be with a girl who has been around with countless men, so wear full protection at all times.

Warning: You can face very large fines and even prison time if you get caught in a prostitution sting operation. See our Guide to Safely Hiring an Escort in Vegas: 10 Essential Tips for more information about escorts and how to stay safer when using them.
Street Hookers: All of the halfway attractive girls work for escort agencies and you are risking a lot more than using an escort, including getting robbed or even drugged. Plus, word is that the AIDS rate is much higher in the local prostitution community among hookers. Many of these women are needle drug addicts and will take a few more bucks to skip the protection, exposing themselves to disease. Don’t even think of not using protection.
Brothels: Remember, we said prostitution was illegal in Clark County. However, it is only illegal in any Nevada county with over 400,000 residents (which basically means Las Vegas and Reno). However, that still leaves close to 16 counties where it is legal with about 19 active brothels. Even though Clark County is the size of the state of New Jersey, Las Vegas is located where you can be out of the county within an hours drive. For about what you take a chance on paying with a local escort, you can go out and have your pick of a lineup of attractive women. In addition, it is also going to be much safer, since Nevada law requires weekly STD testing and monthly tests for things like HIV. Further, the use of condoms is required by law for intercourse and oral sex.
Average costs are about $200-$600 per hour, but it can vary widely based on the place and girl, as well as requested services (some can be in the $1000’s). Services will always include basics, like a blowjob and intercourse, but many other items are provided. Examples include Half and Half (Blowjob and intercourse), Girl on Girl (watch 2 girls), Threesome (sex with 2 girls), Classic Blowjob, Hot and Cold Blowjob (various sensations), Breast Massage, Massage with Happy Ending, Reciprocal Body Massage with Happy Ending, Bubble Bath Party, Shower Party, GFE (Girlfriend Experience where you do girlfriend things followed by sex), Drag Queen Cross Dressing, Lingerie Fetish Show, Role Playing, Bondage / BDSM Play Session, Adult Toy Show, Foot Fetish Party and others.

Hotel Escorts: Many hotels, especially business oriented ones have a bar scene. If a hotel has a ‘club’, it is usually there. Once you tune into it, it is quite obvious. If an attractive girl is sitting by herself after midnight and just starts flirting with you for no reason, the odds are very high she is an escort. Just look for the unusually ethnically diverse group of women with a ‘little black dress’ type evening wear in a business hotel bar, quietly drinking by themselves and not partying. You will often see them slowly playing low-stakes video poker machines. Most do this so they can say they are gambling to avoid security guards. Another tip is that they will rarely drink alcohol while “on the job,” so a single woman drinking hot tea or coffee is another sign. If you wait long enough, you can be assured that one will eventually approach you. However, you need to be at least presentable (wear reasonably nice clothes and be well groomed and clean) or they will think you don’t have any cash, or just not want to deal with you if you look like a total slob. You can also approach them by making eye contact and engaging in light conversation. Of course, don’t expect anyone at the hotel to help you out.
The more expensive girls still hang out around the casino bar/lounge at major hotels, like MGM Grand, Venetian, Caesars Palace, NY NY, Cosmopolitan, Bellagio, Horseshoe Las Vegas, Treasure Island, Rio, Wynn and Encore. Some girls also work the night clubs, and sometimes the dayclub/pool parties.
Las Vegas escorts are in general more expensive than other places. Be prepared to pay several hundred dollars with some that might even be over a grand if she is super hot. It is best to be staying at the same hotel, so you just need to go up to your room. Many escorts will only go with guests staying at the hotel. They feel safer doing it that way. Don’t expect an escort to get in your car either. If you don’t have a room at the same hotel, some escorts will walk with you to a close place, or use an hourly rate motel. Be prepared to negotiate on the price as they will always start very high, but you still have to be reasonable, especially if it is hot escort.
Exotic Dancing and Those Annoying Flyers – No trip to Vegas is complete without running into people giving out flyers and brochures promoting “exotic dance” services. They can be found almost everywhere. You can also find these companies in your hotel phone book under “Entertainers” or “Modeling Services.” The girls who work for these outfits are the same ones that cruise the casinos. The only difference is that they are waiting for calls. The flyers may just list “modeling” as the service. If you want to negotiate for say actual sex, you will need to pay a premium that is likely to be higher than if you just met the girl in a hotel bar. As you might guess, there are more people involved to share the revenue. A benefit to these outfits is some accountability against being robbed. The average time they will stay is about 30 minutes, and then the phone starts ringing for other jobs.
Strip Clubs: There are a number of strip clubs you can go to, and some of the girls will meet you after work, but cost can be a problem. Unless somebody tips you off to a particular lady that is interested in “dates,” you can spend a ton of cash and never get anywhere.
You should never give cash to a girl in a strip club if she says it will lead to her going to your hotel room. You will most likely discover that the stripper leaves through a special back exit and you are out the cash. You can’t even ask to be paid back by the club, since you broke the law by soliciting the girl, so the bouncers will just ask you to leave. However, it is best to stick with cash when paying for dancers and tips. Credit cards may be accepted, but you might be surprised the next day at the amount charged that you did not expect to be paying. Just stay with cash to limit your costs.
Make sure to dress presentable if you want to get into a club, which usually means pants and a dress shirt with a collar. You won’t get in at most clubs wearing baggy pants, lots of big jewelry, etc. Avoid wearing white pants for obvious reasons.
The girls at clubs work as independent contractors. Be prepared to tip well if you want more than a standard “hands-off” lap dance. Getting into the VIP room will cost a few hundred, but you will most likely be able to do some touching at the girls discretion. There are no specific rules and a girl will move your hand away if you are going too far. If you get that hint, be respectful and back off.
The better strip clubs include Sapphire, Spearmint Rhino and the Palomino Club. Most are just topless. See our guide for more info. You can get in as long as you are 18+, but if they serve alcohol, you must be 21 or older.
It is best to call a club in advance and ask for pickup service if you need it. You will usually be able to avoid paying a cover fee this way since the clubs have deals with the drivers to share costs. You should also get a quote for the ride cost in advance to make sure it is close to what you are given after your ride. Compare quotes from different companies, or do an online taxi rate search to make sure you are being given a honest price.
Strip Club / Brothel Transportation: Unless you have your own car or rental, you will need transportation. Below are estimated costs.
Taxi: About $175 each way to the nearest brothel plus $30/hr wait time. This is your most expensive option, but it is easier to find a taxi so you can skip the wait time.
Uber and Lyft: Around $80 each way and $9/hr wait time. You probably need to use the wait time because it may be difficult to find a local Uber/Lyft driver near the often remote brothel location.
Limos: If you have a specific brothel/girl booked, they will often give you a free limo ride as part of the deal. Otherwise, there is usually a fee of about $100 to use the service.
As mentioned, Strip clubs will often waive their cover cost if you call the club and ask for their transportation services.
Swinger Clubs: If you are into it, Vegas has some swinger clubs. The best and largest is the The Red Rooster. You need to bring your own liquor if you want to drink. Another major one is The Green Door which does not allow any alcohol. You need to be 18+ to get in to them. Expect to find mostly guys and most of the women will want to be with other couples. You will find older and less attractive ladies at these places. Your best chances will be if you are a good looking attractive guy and you can find a couple looking for more action with you. Being bisexual is a definite plus. Weeknights make it easier to score than weekends as they are less busy.
Similar to the way escorts work, they are legal because you are not paying them to find sex, but just to hang out in their club or private house. In addition, some do not even charge money and rely on private donations.
Massage Parlors: You can find many of them on the Vegas Strip. You can definitely get a massage. Anything more is between you and the girl. You can sometimes find reviews for better ones. Korean massage parlors in particular are known for being more open when it comes to added value services.
Topless Pools: Las Vegas has topless European style pools such as the Moorea Beach Club at Mandalay Bay, Venus Pool at Caesars, and the Sapphire Pool, which is run by the Sapphire strip club, so you will definitely be seeing attractive topless women if you decide to pay for it. Getting into these pools can be a challenge if you are coming in with a group of guys. Be sure to show respect for the topless women, since most are not there to be ogled at and just want to relax. Stick with the strip clubs if you want to stare.
Adult Entertainment Hotel Shows: This is a good option if you feel uncomfortable being in a pure adult club, but still want to see some skin. Several major Vegas hotels and general venues offer them. Some popular ones include X Burlesque, Rouge, and Fantasy. Most of the hotel shows are relatively tame compared to a strip club, but some are topless. They can be great for couples. See our Top 10 Adult Shows in Vegas guide for our picks and more details.
You might even consider just hanging around a hotel playing an adult show focused on entertaining groups of women. These often have “male hunks” doing a sexy dance show, like Chippendales. See the list below for more of them. After the sexy show, you might appear a lot more attractive to them and they could be more open to hooking up with you, or at least starting a conversation. In addition, they will often be liquored up too.
