France, officially the French Republic (French: République française), is a country in Europe that almost every traveller has a relationship with.

Sex Scene and Prostitution

Prostitution in France (the exchange of sexual services for money) was legal until April 2016, but several surrounding activities were illegal like operating a brothel, living off the avails (pimping) and paying for sex with someone under the age of 18 (the age of consent for sex is 15).

The stand-out measure from the bill and the one that has caused the most controversy is the law that will see customers fined if they are caught paying for sex.

By making the clients rather than the prostitutes the guilty party the reform will “turn the current law on its head,” according to French Socialist MP Maud Olivier, who has been the driving force behind the change.

Under the plan, customers will be fined up to €1,500 and up to €3,750 for repeat offenders.

In 2012 it was estimated that about 15,000 – 20,000 women work as prostitutes in France. 90 percent of the prostitutes were from foreign countries.

In 2010, the number of full-time male and female prostitutes was estimated at 20,000 – 30,000, with 80% being foreigners. Sex work in France, like other countries takes many forms. These include street prostitution, escort services, bars and apartment prostitution.

In 1990, the number of foreign prostitutes in France was only at 20 percent. That time the borders to the Eastern Europe were not open yet.

Street prostitution is partly controlled by pimps, while other workers are autonomous prostitutes. In some areas, such as Lyon or the Bois de Boulogne in Paris, sex workers use vans. The most famous prostitution street in Paris, the la Rue Saint-Denis, has been somewhat gentrified in recent years and the prostitutes have been moved further north. Escort services where one hires a woman or man for "entertainment" or companionship, but usually including sex are less common in France, compared to North America.

In bars, women try to induce men to buy expensive drinks along with sexual services. Prices are set by the bar owner, and the money is shared between the owner and the prostitute. Pigalle peepshows are well known for practising such scams. Prostitution in apartments is advertised in adult newspapers and magazines. Swingers' clubs are places where partner-swapping occurs and sometimes paid prostitutes are in attendance, as well as 'amateur' women and couples who get in without paying the flat-rate charge of about 80 to 120 euros that men pay, including food, drink and unlimited sex sessions, with the added twist that these are performed in the open in full view of all the guests.

Today most French men use sex services in neighbouring countries. Example: Saarbrücken in Germany has built an huge sex industry in the town for the French people who just come there from few kilometres away from France. Belgium and Spain are also popular destinations for French guys living near the border. Thanks to EU, which have made border crossing so simple.

Regions

France is divided into 22 administrative regions, which themselves can be grouped into seven cultural regions:

Regions of France
Île-de-France
The region surrounding the French capital, Paris.
Northern France (Le Havre, Lille, Normandy)
A region where the world wars have left many scars.
Northeastern France (Reims, Strassburg, Champagne-Ardenne, Franche-Comté)
A region where wider European culture (and especially Germanic culture) has merged with the French, giving rise to interesting results.
Great West (Nantes, Rennes, Brest)
An agriculture-based oceanic region with a culture greatly influenced by the ancient Celtic peoples.
Central France (Dijon, Bourges)
A largely agricultural and vinicultural region, featuring river valleys, chateaux and historic towns.
Southwestern France (Bordeaux, Toulouse)
A region of sea and wine, with nice beaches over the Atlantic Ocean and young high mountains close to Spain.
Southeastern France (Nice, Lyon, Marseille, Corsica, Montpellier, Saint-Tropez, Cannes)
The primary tourist region of the country outside of Paris, with a warm climate and azure sea, contrasting with the mountainous French Alps.
Chantilly gardens, Paris, Île-de-France
Place du General de Gaulle, Lille, Nord-Pas de Calais, Northern France

Each administrative region is divided into a number of departments. Each department is allocated a 2 digit number. This number forms the first 2 digits of the 5 digit French postcode.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) rights in France have been seen as traditionally liberal and some of the most advanced in Europe and worldwide. Although same-sex sexual activity was a capital crime that often resulted in the death penalty during the Ancien Régime, all sodomy laws were decriminalized in 1791 during the French Revolution.

France became the thirteenth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage in 2013, despite receiving opposition from across the country. France became the first country in the world to declassify transsexualism as a mental illness. France has frequently been named one of the most gay friendly countries in the world. Recent polls have indicated that a majority of the French support same-sex marriage and in 2013, another poll indicated that 77% of the French viewed that homosexuality should be accepted by society, one of the highest in the world.

Up to 15 percent of sex workers in France are men. Most cater to gay men and only a small number of the prostitutes accept women as clients.

A gay male prostitutes charge between $200 to $243 (€150 €180 ) per hour.

Dating

Dating in France 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 France 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

Depends of the city, but usually it's quite easy to find transsexual escorts advertising their services online in different cities in France.

Sexual Services for Women

Up to 15 percent of sex workers in France are men. Most male escorts cater to gay men and only a small number of the prostitutes accept female clients.

Sleeping and Girl Friendly Hotels

Make sure before booking a hotel that is it OK to bring guests to your room at night time.

See also: Global list of girl friendly hotels

Stay Safe

Crime-related emergencies can be reported to the toll-free number 17 or 112 (European emergency telephone number). Law enforcement agencies are the National Police (Police nationale) in urban areas and the Gendarmerie nationale in the countryside, though for minor crimes such as parking and traffic offences some towns and villages also have a municipal police force (Police municipale).

France generally has low crime rates and is one of the safest countries in the world, but large cities are plagued with the usual woes. Violent crime against visitors is very rare, but there is pickpocketing and purse-snatching in tourist hot-spots. If the usual precautions against this are taken, your valuables and you will be safe.
