Sex and Prostitution in Belfast
In the United Kingdom, prostitution itself (the exchange of sexual services for money) is legal but a number of related activities, including soliciting in a public place, kerb crawling, owning or managing a brothel, pimping and pandering, are crimes.
In England, Wales and in Northern Ireland it is an offence to pay for sex with a prostitute who has been “subjected to force” and this is a strict liability offence (clients can be prosecuted even if they didn’t know the prostitute was forced).
It is illegal to buy sex from a person younger than 18, although the age of consent for non-commercial sex is 16.
There are around 200 women who are working as prostitutes in Northern Ireland. The women see on average 5 guys per day, and there are around 800 men in Northern Ireland who visit a prostitute every day. The prostitution industry in Northern Ireland generates up to $55 Million (35 Million British Pounds) in annual turnover, with $47 Million (30 Million Pounds) in profit
Belfast is not the best place for mongering.
Red Light Districts
Linenhall streets is considered as a red-light district of Belfast. But there is no official red light area in Belfast although some people wish that kind of place would be built.
Prostitutes and Sex Workers
Around 17,000 men in Northern Ireland - 3% of the adult male population - pay for sex each year, according to new research.
The first report of its kind on prostitution found that criminalising prostitution here would put prostitutes in greater danger, was unlikely to deter customers and almost impossible to police. Queen's University questioned 171 prostitutes online, 31 of which said they lived in Northern Ireland while 62 said they had sold sex here. Others didn't state where they lived or sold sex. Also quizzed were 446 punters who had paid for sex, 51 of whom live here and 89 who had purchased it in Northern Ireland. 61% of sex workers thought changing the law would make them less safe, 85% of sex workers believed outlawing the purchase of sex would not reduce sex trafficking, 2% of prostitutes supported criminalising the purchase of sex & 16% of clients said a change to the law would make them stop paying for sex.
On any given day, about 350 women in Northern Ireland are offering sexual services for sale.
Back in the days you would see sex workers on the street, or in some clubs, braving the weather and the risk of drunken taunting to earn a living by hoisting their skirts in a doorway or in some poor quality room. Now, prostitutes are mostly online.
Of the 17,000 men said to be paying for sex in Northern Ireland each year, 84% use the internet to find sex.
The average age of a sex worker in Northern Ireland is 30.
Most of the street sex workers have gone online from the streets. It is often much safer to have sex with in-call escorts, but there are still many people who like to pick up their girls from the streets of Belfast, as they enjoy the thrill and danger. Over the last 5 years, the number of people engaged in street-based prostitution has dropped from around 30 to 40 people to about 20 people.

Sleeping and Girl Friendly Hotels
It is better to rent an apartment than stay in a hotel if you are planning to bring sex workers to your room in Belfast. Some of the hotels may require you to pay for another bed if you bring girls to your room at night.
Belfast's reputation as a dangerous city is often exaggerated. A recent study by the United Nations International Crime Victimisation Survey (ICVS) shows that Northern Ireland has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe. The majority of incidents are committed by local people against local people, unsurprisingly following religious, sectarian or political differences. Tourists are outside this culture and should not be very concerned. As with any other city, it pays to be careful and always be aware of your surroundings. Do not flash valuables or money or walk around reading your guidebook or map. If you need directions, ask in any shop or bar.
There are areas in Belfast which have been scarred by trouble in the past. Though these areas are largely safe to visit, it is important to be aware of where you are. In nationalist areas of the city, it would be foolish to wear a Glasgow Rangers, England, or Northern Ireland football jersey. In unionist areas, wearing Glasgow Celtic, Republic of Ireland and Gaelic Football (GAA) jerseys would almost certainly lead to trouble. Though this is unlikely to affect tourists, it is best to avoid wearing green or orange or the name of any area, especially Northern Ireland or England.
- The City Centre is generally a safe area and is also regarded as a neutral zone. Avoid leaving the main streets at night and try not to venture into dimly lit streets.
- North Belfast is not usually on the tourist trail but is becoming increasingly popular with the more adventurous traveller. Tiger's Bay is a unionist enclave which is generally safe during the day but should be avoided at night. The New Lodge, a nationalist area, is similarly patchy. The Antrim Road (including Carlisle Circus) and Shore Road areas are best avoided at night. The Limestone Road is an interface (on one side is a nationalist area, the other a unionist enclave) and should be avoided at night due to occasional violence. It is best to avoid the nationalist Ardoyne area at night, especially the interface area which links it with the Crumlin Road and Shankill areas of the city.
- West Belfast is perfectly safe and generally tourist-friendly during the day as long as you don't venture too far from the main roads. Do not venture off the Falls Road at night. The Shankill Road itself is best avoided at night. The nationalist Turf Lodge estate in Andersonstown is best avoided altogether. Falls Park and the area around it is dimly lit at night and is best avoided. The Crumlin Road is a unionist area and is generally safe during the day but not at night. It is also emphasized that tourists do not write on the peace wall as it is culturally insensitive to do so.
- South Belfast is the most affluent part of the city and is generally trouble-free. Student night life can lead to altercations outside the bars and clubs on Bradbury Place at night. Sandy Row is a unionist neighbourhood that would probably be best avoided at night but is perfectly safe during the day and usually very quiet. The unionist Village area which lies further on from Sandy Row between the Lisburn Road and Boucher Road is quiet and residential but best avoided at night. The mixed Holylands and Ormeau Road areas do not deserve their reputations as trouble spots as they are generally both very quiet other than the occasional student party.
- East Belfast is a predominantly unionist, working-class district that suffers from the same social problems as similar areas in other cities in Britain and Ireland. The Newtownards Road is generally safe and well lit at night. One potential flashpoint is the interface with the nationalist Short Strand neighbourhood. Though fairly well kept and safe during the day, it is best to avoid this area at night.
Perhaps more importantly, it is not advisable to make any overtly political statements about Northern Ireland, even if you think that your comments will align with the views of the people to whom you're making them. It is unlikely that anyone will ask your thoughts about the political situation, however if this does happen it's best just to say you don't have an opinion. Otherwise, ask locals for advice and enjoy the hospitality of the majority of Belfast people.
