The problem in Albania is that prostitution is not legal and very much condemned by public opinion. Since it is a tiny country words gets around that why its a bit hard to find the women. There are no street walkers anywhere.
The easiest place to find girls is through taxi drivers who work at night. Don't be shy about asking but don't expect much on the quality side. The hookers will run from 50-100€ for basic sex. Depending on how good looking you are you may get OWO and CIM, but there usually extra.
The next best place would be hotels and motels, just go and ask the desk clerk as in most eastern and southern european countries.
The hotels start at about 10€ per hour, so it is quite cheap to fuck in there.
Theres also a happy ending massage offered at the local Sheraton in Tirana.
Gay and Lesbian
“Gay life in Albania” is hardly an accurate descriptive word for this country since there is no public Pride presence and few courageous activists who work mostly behind the scenes to lobby sympathetic government members and quietly offer support to young gays. But change will come as the country’s two LGBT rights and equality groups slowly push open the envelop of tolerance.
There are several clubs and bars that are extensively frequented by LGBT community living in the Tirana.
According to the information from Albanian Lesbian and Gay Association, there are also male prostitutes from Roma population or Gypsy community who practice street sex work. Usually they are very cheap (under 10€). But it is very common that they try to steal your money or scam you.
Take the usual precautions. Foreigners are generally not targeted by the local crime scene, though pickpocketings do occur.
