Sex and Prostitution in Jakarta
Prostitution in Indonesia is legally considered a "crime against decency/morality", although it is widely practiced, tolerated and regulated. Some women are financially motivated to become prostitutes, while others may be forced by friends, relatives or strangers. Traditionally, they have met with customers in entertainment venues or special prostitution complexes. Although prostitution is illegal in Indonesia — a country home to the world’s largest Muslim population, prostitution is thriving.
There are dozen small bars on Jalan Pelatehan. D`s Place, Top Gun and My Bar were the most popular bars. English language is no problem because the owners of the bars target their places mainly to the expat community. Blok M starts to be crowded 8pm and before that it is probably to early. Most of the freelance girls do not arrive earlier than 9 or 10pm. On any given day you will find at least 100 Indonesian girls there to meet potential customers. Most of the girls are not so attractive but it`s possible to find a gem or two. Girls are used to foreigners and most of them can follow a basic conversation in English.
Prices for ST or an over-night action vary greatly and depend on your age, appearance and experience. Some girls wants to have 500,000 IDR (US$43) but should be easily negotiated down to 300,000 IDR (US$26) in most cases. If that is too much for your budget, you can always have a quick sex in a brothel tent by the train tracks costing you only a around US$5.
There are lots of freelancer prostitutes in the Jakarta nightclubs, especially in Northern Jakarta, Blok M area and Hotel bars.
White expat males are called Bhule in Indonesia and local girls love Bhules (western guys). You can date an extremely good looking girls in Indonesia and have sex with them for free and you do not need to be a player or very good looking dude.
Jakarta Female Escorts
There are not too many escorts in Jakarta who are advertising their services online, but it's getting more popular all the time.
Red Light Districts
There are three main Red-light districts in Jakarta and they are called Kalijodo, Cipinang and Bongkaran. street whores, Brothels, Erotic massage parlours and escort services are offered in the areas and you can also find sex workers from the bars and clubs in the area.
- Jakarta’s largest red-light district of Kalijodo, located on the border of West Jakarta and North Jakarta, which is probably the oldest site in Indonesia, as it has been around since the 18th century. The Kalijodo red-light district, holds the livelihoods of at least 5,000 people — from hoodlums to sex workers, brothel owners to waiters, and cigarette and food vendors to local residents.
- According to local residents, prostitution has been in Cipinang since as early as 1993, centering in a park near the Jatinegara station. There used to be only transgendered prostitutes there.The prostitutes charge customers around Rp 50,000 (US$5) for a short time in a small tent beside the railways near the Jatinegara station, or Rp 250,000 in nearby lodges.
- Infamous red-light district is Bongkaran in Tanah Abang, Central Jakarta — only few meters from the Tanah railway station. Bongkaran area alone is estimated to have at least 700 girls.
- Blok M, if you're in a low budget but you wanted to get laid, just grab a taxi and tell the taxi driver to take you to Jalan Falatehan (Falatehan Street), just about 200 Meters from the traffic lights with Ambhara hotel and a Plaza on it side. You can find working girls from most nightclubs and bars.
Prostitutes and Sex Workers
One of the main reasons for a prostitute to enter the business is the attractiveness of earning money quickly. The Jakarta Post reported that high-end prostitutes in Jakarta could earn Rp 15 million - Rp 30 million (USD 1,755 to 3,510) monthly, able to charge more than Rp 3 million (USD 350) per session for their services. Those entering prostitution for money come from both middle-class and poor families.
Another major cause is coercion (see "Forced prostitution" for general discussion). Young women are offered employment opportunities in major cities, then raped and forced to prostitute themselves while paying money to their pimps.
- Clubs in North Jakarta always have prostitutes (except Churchill Bar and maybe K7), usually a combination of freelance prostitutes and girls under contracts.
There are basically 3 areas where you will find freelance prostitutes from bars in Jakarta:
- Blok M, also called Jalan Falatehan, is where American and English older expats go. Not all the bars there have prostitutes (Sportmans and One Tree Bar are ayam-free for instance), but most do. The girls there are mostly freelance, sometimes with a boyfriend pimp. Near Jalan Falatehan, you also have what we call "Little Tokyo", which is an even larger red light district than Blok M, only that this one caters more exclusively to the entertainment needs of Korean and Japanese people. There are dozens of bars and karaokes there, but apart from the above-mentioned nationalities, few people go there.
- North Jakarta and the city's peripherical areas (Taman Anggrek, Daan Mogot, etc.) where most local people will go in the one-stop entertainment nightclubs (with karaoke, massage parlour, bars, clubs, spa and sometimes casinos all under one roof) or other local curiosities such as massage bars, panti pijat, tempat dugem. In these places, the girls are usually under contract with the management, and though they get a correct salary for indonesian standards, they have very poor perspectives. There are also many high-class prostitutes and escort girls in Kota (the most beautiful girls are not to be found in Blok M, nor in Hotel bars, but in places like Alexis, Golden Crown, Malioboro, Sun City, which also "import" girls from China, Thailand, Russia, Uzbekistan, and even Spain). They earn comfortable salaries and they often have some regular customers who pay them cars, houses, etc. Their salaries can be over 10,000$/month for the top prostitutes.
- Hotel bars such as B.A.T.S in Hotel Shangri-La, Tiga Puluh in Hotel Le Meridien, or CJ in Hotel Mulia, for travellers, with also quite many expats. Girls there can be very interesting sometimes, with fun, smart personalities, yet obsessed with money, Blackberries and Louis Vuitton. Many can be quite good party-friends, especially if you want to go party some place else, since most of the times, the same girls will move from BATS after it closes to Top Gun (Blok M) or to Stadium. Normal bars and clubs are geographically more limited to the center : Menteng, Plaza Indonesia, Kuningan, and South Jakarta: Gatot Subroto, Kemang, Senayan. In these places, if you dress appropriately and look ok, you should not have too much trouble meeting ladies. There use to be a place to meet girls for free play called Red Square, but it closed down.
- Street prostitutes in Jakarta can be easily found standing along streets near the Presidential Palace and the National Police Headquarters, or waiting for customers at bars inside lavish hotels and nightclubs.
- You can search along Jalan Hayam Wuruk or also called the Kota Area. Usually a dense area is large Mango street after and before the Dunkin Donut shop. You just slow the pace vehicle, and the girls will soon approach you and negotiate. For the price range is Rp. 300k-400k. Provide condoms alone for the sake of safety and choose a comfortable and safe hotel.
