Where did the, um, not so clean contingent go, exactly? @hhusted prostitution is actually legal in the Netherlands maybe that's why they are so open about [email protected] uraniumfish I don't really know if NYC has a district per se but it does have a ton of strip clubs which are located all over the city like Flashdancers, Larry Flynt's Hustler club , Scandals, Sapphire, Scores etc Have heard that these clubs are especially popular with the high rollers of Wall Street who are happy to drop tons of' cash in there.Fair enough, @hhusted, I'm just going by hearsay/what friends have mentioned (not that they've ever gone in search of houses of ill repute, to be fair).But I imagine in the age of craigslist, brothels can be more "discreet" - there need not be a huge red light "district" so much as a red light website...
Now, I admit, much of this list makes me blush, but I thought I'd link it anyway - Time Out NY has a list of "happy ending parlours" -
Maybe I'm just a prude, but I rather thought that these places were, if not a rarity, then nevertheless more discreet (I imagined things like call-in escorts and "massage therapists" advertised in the Village Voice were more common, as they were not restricted to one location). When I lived in Vienna I lived above a quite sketchy massage parlour, but never seen anything of the kind in NY.
I like the editors note ("paying for sex is illegal in New York City"!
and "At each location, your mileage may vary, depending on your masseuse, your look and your behavior"! Isn't this list just setting up various police raids?
And you can't leave out Time Out NY's listing of public sexcapades: @Broadway Bk enjoyed reading NYC's versions of lovers [email protected] This was an eye opener thought they only existed in cities like Bangkok Btw this is what the latest L magazine threw up- Whatever you're into, whether it be Proust, parcour, or kinky S&M orgies, NYC has got it!
You've gotta love it - NYC must be the only place on the planet where even the most obscure fetish probably has its own club night and meeting group...
So, um, there's something I've been wanting to know but was to shy to ask.
You know how 42nd Street got cleaned up in recent years?
Reproduction in whole or in part without permission is prohibited.
For the past two months (since I stopped writing AM New York’s dating column), I know you’ve all been wandering about, aimlessly lost, devoid of direction or purpose, unable to think clearly, steadfastly bewildered, scared and alone, muddled and nonplussed, hopeless and … Anyway, you probably wondered to yourself, "Self, where should I get all my dating advice now that Julia no longer writes an actual dating column and instead just posts photos of herself on her blog, not smiling in the exact same way every single time??
