Street Hookers / Prostitution
Most street-based sex workers solicit on the side of the road. They may see clients in their cars, or take them to hidden areas beside the road. Or they may take clients to their own house or flat, if they have one, or to an establishment that rents rooms by the hour.
The largest number of sex workers ply their trade in Voortrekker Road. This is a long stretch of road that runs from Salt River in the south, near the city centre, all the way to Belville in the north – a distance of about 30 kilometres. Along this road at various points sex workers wait for clients. Traffic is slowed by traffic lights set at regular intervals.
Closer to Salt River, the streets are lined with industrial buildings, which then transform into commercial sprawl as one travels a little further north into the lower- and middle-income residential areas of Goodwood, Parow and Bellville. Sex workers tend to work in this area late at night. The road is well lit, offering security and the opportunity to see and assess clients’ faces. Traffic lights allow clients to stop and turn into a side street without attracting too much attention.
On Voortrekker Road you will find women standing on corners, some dressed stereotypically in miniskirts and high heels. Others choose to blend in with more conservative dress. Although this makes it harder for clients to identify them as sex workers, it also provides them with a measure of protection from the police and others who may prey on them.
Women who work outdoors are more visible compared to those working in brothels, and hence more vulnerable. They face the threat of violence from the police, from clients, from the pimps of other sex workers (with whom they are in competition) and from opportunistic criminals (‘skollies’) who rob them of their earnings. Thirteen percent of streetbased sex workers told us they were afraid of gangsters or skollies who take their money and threaten to hurt them. One woman told us that her strategy to keep herself safe is to limit the number of hours she works. For others, violence or robbery is a regular, predictable risk of the work.

In and around Cape Town there are sex workers who were either working in brothels or self-employed ‘indoors’. This was a much larger number than working on the streets, most likely because working in brothels is safer and more anonymous than working on the street.
Overall there are around 100 brothels or agencies in Cape Town. Two-thirds of brothels were based in residential homes or flats in the suburbs, while a third were club type agencies or massage parlours.
Some massage parlours, licensed to operate as such, are also brothels behind the scenes. These types of business are less circumspect in their storefront advertising, leaving some room to misconstrue the nature of their business. Alcohol is almost never on sale inside. There are massage tables rather than beds in rooms. Massage is usually a part of the service, except that the service ends with masturbation of the client by the sex worker, or other services the client and sex worker may agree to.
Brothel-based sex workers tend to have higher levels of education than street-based sex workers. Almoust every worker in the indoor sector had completed at least some high school classes, and around 10 percent had some tertiary education.

Although Cape Town has its share of violent crime, you are safe if you keep your wits about you as you should in every large city around the world. As a visitor, you are less likely to encounter problems while visiting the townships if you are escorted by a township resident—though you should not really venture into the townships without a fairly large group of accompaniment. Official township tours are your safest bet; revealing a very interesting lifestyle to the more curious tourists. The CBD (Central Business District) has been cleaned up over the years, but some con men and cholos do still exist, although during daylight police make themselves known. Simply put, leave everything you value—especially your papers and tickets—in your hotel room safe if you plan to stroll through Cape Town.
Foreigners should avoid hitchhiking or using local commuter and metro trains. Be aware of automated teller machine (ATM) con artists. Under no circumstances allow a stranger to assist you in your transactions. Should your card become stuck in the ATM, call the helpline number on display at the teller machine for assistance and to cancel your card.
During day time it is quite safe to walk around the city center. People and beggars are in general quite respectful and accept a "no". During the evening it is worth taking a taxi to and from your destination, rather than walking. Make sure you take a taxi card with you, so that you can have the driver meet you outside the bar or resteraunt.
Watch out for the mini bus taxis. They often drive like hell disobeyeing many traffic rules. Watch out for pickpocketing.
At night, make sure you stay on well-lit and crowded streets. Crime is especially high in Salt River, Observatory, Mowbray, and the Cape Flats.
Glue sniffing youngsters and junkies are a minor problem, called 'strollers' by the locals: these ragamuffins will strip you bare if you do not stay alert.
While driving in a car be more aware of people approaching the car at traffic lights for smash-and-grab theft. So don't leave valuables on the seats or your lap.
If you go to the mountains, go in a group of at least 4 people.
You should try not to appear to be a tourist, and you will not be targeted. Targeted tourists are generally spotted wearing cameras, shorts, jewellery and golf hats—try not to do this. Do what you can to blend in, and if anything happens—do not try to be a hero: rather, give them what they want
