Prostitution is illegal in Slovakia and any form of pimping or organized solicitation is punishable by law. That is the official stance but - like most other major capitals - you will find a steady supply of erotic massage salons, up-market escort services and strip bars in Bratislava - which are officially legal.
There are several striptease saloons within city center and around the city. These are usually oficially registered and are quite safe to enter. You can watch pole dance, gogo dancers or have a private lap dance. They usually serve alcohol here, which is however quite expensive. Also, there is an entry fee - your euros will get changed for "saloon dollars" which you can then offer to the dancers. These establishments often use a variety of techniques to overcharge guests, especially if they only speak a foreign language. One of the most known tricks on guests are overcharged drinks which you need to order for you and your "partner". Browse strip clubs on Google >>
Most prostitutes now work at so-called "privates" - unmarked apartments around the city with one or several girls usually requiring telephone arrangement. Street prostitution is limited to areas frequented by truck drivers and Austrian clients - the highway Panonska towards the Hungarian border in Petrzalka, as well as a stretch of road near the Slovnaft refinery. Because of the grey area that defines the legal status of prostitution in Bratislava, there is no guarantee of healthcare for prostitutes from the state and most are assumed to be drug addicts by the police and municipality.

In the centre, especially in some of the more expensive bars, there are good looking female prostitutes looking for foreign clients. Often, their ultimate goal is to steal from any unsuspecting client so utmost caution is advised for those tempted to engage their services. There are known cases of clients being drugged up and robbed of their belongings by gangs using women posing as prostitutes in Bratislava.
Sexual services by both men and women also can be found on many Slovak internet chat servers and singles websites.
Semi-legal forms of prostitution are practised in erotic massage salons around the city and along major roads throughout the country. While some of the businesses are legitimate salons offering only erotic dance, lap dancing, striptease and the like, many are fronts for actual brothels. Browse escort services on Google >>
There are a number of escort services in Bratislava, including many that advertise on the internet, mostly at up-market prices. A few years ago, the police have cracked down on some of the larger of these services with the charges of solicitation. Browse escort services on Google >>
There are 20+ sex shops spread across Bratislava, with several stores located near the city center. You can buy variety of erotic toys and tools here, even during the day. By law, store fronts cannot be transparent thus are usually covered with very soft erotic banners. Sellers inside are usually friendly and discrete and should be able to help even in English language. Browse sex shops on Google >>
Should you choose to look for sexual services in Bratislava, it is recommended you proceed only with extreme caution. Hotel receptions at seedier hotels and taxi drivers may be the best places to get tips and safety advice. Condoms are on sale at most hotel receptions, some condom machines are available in bars and clubs (but not always) and 24-hour gas stations and supermarkets will sell them as well.
