Asia is too massive and diverse to conceptualize as a single digestible travel "destination". Asia offers very diverse travel options. There are ultra modern, largely democratic countries like Japan and the East Asian Tigers of Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea which are very prosperous and in which people enjoy very high standards of living. On the other hand, Afghanistan, Laos and East Timor are extremely poor countries where people struggle even to get a few grains of rice each day. Of course, there are also many countries lying somewhere in the middle, such as the emerging powerhouses of China and India which make wonderful travel destinations in themselves due to their long history, size and diversity. Thailand is a magnet for travellers, with great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture and great beaches. Asia also contains North Korea, suffering under one of, if not the most, oppressive regimes in the world and, therefore, very safe for travellers.

Sex Scene and Prostitution
The legality of prostitution in Asia varies by country. In Asia, the main characteristic of the region is the very big discrepancy between the laws which exist on the books and what occurs in practice. For example, in Thailand prostitution is illegal, but in practice it is tolerated and regulated, and the country is a destination for sex tourism.
The World Health Organization has called for the decriminalisation of sex work as a means of combating HIV/AIDS. The Asian region has the lowest incidence (5.2%)

Escorting online business is booming in Japan, South Korea and Singapore, and many others are catching up, like Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, China and Indonesia. More and more sex workers are now days using smart phones with internet connection so it's really making a big difference to the format of selling sex and escort services.
Erotic Massage Parlors
Asia is famous of its erotic massage salons. They are almost everywhere throughout Asia. Asian type of massage parlours have taken place everywhere in the world. Probably even in your home town you have also some Chinese or Thai massage salons where you can get extra services.
Thailand has taken the massage industry for totally new level. For example in Bangkok there are huge building which has hundreds of private rooms just for massage sessions and sex. Some of the rooms have jacuzzis or even saunas and other luxury facilities, such as mirrors in the ceiling and minibars.

Japan is very famous of its brothels called soaplands and pink salons. These venues are quite expensive and there is no full service guaranteed.
India's huge red-light districts have thousands of small brothels where mostly local guys visit. The price for having sex in India's cheap brothels are ridiculously low.

Thailand, Philippines and some other countries in Asia have go-go bars where girls or ladyboys are dancing topless or nude, and you can take her out and have fun in a short-time hotel room or in a private room in the back of the bar.
Karaoke and KTVs
KTVs are karaoke bars consisting entirely of private rooms. Many of them are fronts for prostitution. Others can be more family-oriented.
Definition of a KTV sex club
- You can go to the KTV club to sing and drink, just like a clean family-oriented KTV.
- The setup is just like a real KTV place except it's much more luxurious, with big private rooms.
- Instead of paying hourly, club is a lot more expensive. It usually means spending a lot of money to the liquor/food, think of "minimum spending".
- If you do not want ladies, no one will bother you, just enjoy the room, sing and drink with your friends.
- If you want ladies, there are mama-san's, who will bring out line up's of women. You can pick any girl you like, they will sing, drink, chat, play games with you, all that for a fee.
- If you like a particular lady, and would like to take them out, it's entirely up to you and the girl, the establishments are not involved, you might or might not have to pay a fee to the establishments.
- Not every girl will "go out" with you, some of them purely earn a living by being your companion, not selling sex. Of course some are prostitutes that will happily "go out" with you.
KTVs (Karaoke venues) are very popular in some parts of Asia. For example in China, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Korea, Vietnam and Indonesia you can find huge KTV buildings with hundreds of hostess girls. Some of the countries have built KTVs just because there are so many wealthy Chinese tourists.
Swinging (sexual practise), also known as wife swapping or partner swapping is a non-monogamous behavior, in which partners in a committed relationship engage in sexual activities with others as a recreational or social activity. Swinging can take place in a number of contexts, ranging from spontaneous sexual activity involving partner swapping at an informal gathering of friends to planned regular social meetings to "hooking up" with like-minded people at a swingers' club.
There can be found some swinging action everywhere in Asia. In some countries it's more hush-hush than in others. Swinger clubs designed for tourists and expats is also a huge business in some parts of Asia. Some clubs have only foreign customers. Swinger club policies vary a lot. Some clubs take only couples inside as customers but some clubs also welcome singles to join the party. It's more common that single women can entry to a swinger club than single men. Many swinger clubs have different kind of themes and different kind of rooms, for example for BDSM action.
Sex Shops and Adult Stores
If you don’t feel like visiting or cannot find any local sex shops in Asia, you can easily order adult products from Online Sex Shop.
Not all countries in Asia have sex shops. In those countries people usually purchase sex toys, porn movies, lubricants and lingerie from online sex shops.
In the other hand some of the countries have huge sex stores with many floors inside. Also some adult stores have private cabins, sex cinemas, glory holes and peep shows. The biggest and best product selections can be found from Japan and Hong Kong.
Love Hotels and Short Time Hotels
A love hotel is a type of short-stay hotel found around the world operated primarily for the purpose of allowing couples privacy for sexual activities. Japan is world famous of its love hotels. The name originates from "Hotel Love" in Osaka which was built in 1968 and had a rotating sign.
Entrances to love hotels are discreet and interaction with staff is minimized, with rooms often selected from a panel of buttons and the bill settled by pneumatic tube, automatic cash machines, or a pair of hands behind a pane of frosted glass. Although cheaper hotels are often quite utilitarian, higher-end hotels may feature fanciful rooms decorated with anime characters, equipped with rotating beds, ceiling mirrors, karaoke machines, unusual lighting, or may be styled similarly to dungeons or other fantasy scenes, sometimes including S&M gear.
Love hotels can usually be identified using symbols such as hearts and the offer of a room rate for a "rest" as well as for an overnight stay. The period of a "rest" varies, typically ranging from one to three hours. Cheaper daytime off-peak rates are common. In general, reservations are not possible, leaving the hotel will forfeit access to the room, and overnight stay rates only become available after 10:00 p.m. These hotels may be used for prostitution, although they are sometimes used by budget-travelers sharing accommodation.
Short-time hotels can be found from almost avery Asian country. They are usually located near to the red-light districts or other prostitution areas. You can rent a room for half an hour of longer time. Basic short-time hotels are nothing compared to original love hotels in Japan. Short-time hotel rooms can be very basic with bed and shower.
Usually all the prostitutes will know it there are any short-time hotels near by. Remember to ask the price of the room before agreeing to take a girl there.
Nightclubs and Bars
Asia is full of nightclubs, bars and pubs. You can usually find lots of local and foreign girls from the nightclubs in Asian big cities. It's also very common that many semi-pro sex workers and full time prostitutes are partying and looking for customers in nightclubs where tourist guys like to go.
If you're chatting with a gorgeous local girl in the club, you should make sure that she is not going to ask for a payment of her services later on. Western girls are usually just normal girls having fun and probably looking for a one night stand.
Gay and Lesbian
Gay modeling in internet is getting more popular all the time and it's a big market alongside with gay porn. You can watch gay live sex also in Asia as long as you are connected to internet.

Gay rights and other gay and lesbian related issues vary a lot in different cities and countries in Asia. For example in the Middle East it's totally forbidden. Also sometimes the religious point of views can make the life difficult for gays in Asia.
However, as anywhere in the world, you can find gay action. It's natural that there are gay people living everywhere in the world, no matter what the laws say about that. In some places it's more open and in some places you can't see any of it in public. Most non-islamic countries are quite open for gay communities. For example in Pattaya, (Thailand), there is a small area for gay tourists. It's called Boy's Town.
There are thousand of gay bars, clubs and pubs in Asia. Also gay cruising areas can be found almost every country.
Other Adult Services
You can find lots of "other adult services" throughout Asia. These kind of venues might be BDSM clubs, sex museums etc.
Dating in Asia can be a bit tricky due to cultural differences, so your best bet is to sign up for a dating site before your trip so you can meet a few locals ahead of time. AdultFriendFinder.com, for example, lets you meet local members in Asia and get to know them on a personal basis before you arrive. Take advantage of features like live chat rooms and member webcams so you know who you are chatting with before arranging a face-to-face meeting. Since time in your destination may be limited, get to know each other’s desires beforehand so when you do meet, you can skip the awkward introductions and start having some real fun.
Transsexuals and Shemales
For example in big cities in Thailand you cannot walk 5 minutes on the street without seeing any ladyboys. Ladyboys can be found from all over Asia. The countries with the most ladyboys and shemales are Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia. When using the term "ladyboy", it often means transsexuals from Asia, especially in South East Asia as Thailand, Laos or Cambodia.
Very high percentage of ladyboys in Asia are working as prostitutes. They also usually die younger because of taking a lot of hormones. Some ladyboys also drink a lot and use drugs while working as a prostitute.

Sexual Services for Women
Not all Asian men are into western women. That's why it might sometimes be a bit tricky for white women travelers to find sex company. However finding sex in Asia shouldn't be a problem because there's a lot of tourists all around the Asia. You can find any type of guys from big cities in Asia. Some of the guys are tourists and some of them are expats. Also many Asian guys are into western girls, but not all the girls are into Asian guys.
Some parts in Asia are famous for its female sex tourism. For example Bali and Lombok in Indonesia are huge sex travel destinations for western women. There are these so called "beach boys" and surfers who have a great athletic body. Many western girls know this when they are booking a trip. Beach boys like to fuck tourist girls. Usually tourist girls even buy them food and clothes etc. It's also very common that young good-looking western girls are taking care of these surfer dudes and give money for their living. Of course these surfer guys have stupid tourist girls for every finger and the girls are in love thinking they have a real relationship. The situation is pretty similar than those old guys who are sending money to Thailand for their "girlfriends". In both cases the locals are taking benefit of foreigners which is understandable.
Sleeping and Girl Friendly Hotels
Hotel policies vary a lot in Asia, depending of the country. For example in Thailand and Cambodia it's usually pretty easy to take a girl in your room, but in Vietnam and South Korea it's totally different story. Good thing is that love hotels and short-time hotels are quite popular in Asia.

Safety in Asia can vary wildly, but it is a safe place in general. Nearly all tourist attractions on the continent are far from conflict, but there are a few regions in which conflict and/or general lawlessness exists.
Most countries in East and South East Asia are quite safe.
