Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution is legal and regulated in Latvia. Prostitutes must register, must undergo monthly health checks and must carry a health card; if they fail to do so they can be penalized. Although prostitution is regulated in Latvia, brothels and other forms of procuring are illegal. According to the law "Any activity of the third person which promotes prostitution is prohibited" and "Persons are prohibited to join in groups in order to offer and provide sexual services..."
Red Light Districts
Based on his interviews there are about 18,000 prostitutes in Latvia. According to official statistics, there are 2500 to 3000 prostitutes in the country. About 50 percent of Latvian women have had sex for money.
Nobody will deny that Latvia has a lot of incredibly sexy women. Although Riga has been known as very popular sex tourism destination, this is no longer the case. Prostitution has been cracked down on big time and has been almost wiped out. Although prostitution is technically legal in Latvia, the many restrictions effectively nullify it.
Back in 2000, the street prostitution was the most popular form of prostitution in Latvia. Now a days it is slowly dying because most girls will work from apartments and search clients online.
Do not go to strip clubs in Latvia. Here they are still regarded as places to rip off foreigners and local money-bags. If you wish to invite a performer from a strip bar be prepared to pay at least 50-100€ to the club and at least the same amount to the girl. In larger clubs you can come across semi-professionals who are keen to meet wealthy tourists. However, a mere “acquaintance” does not imply it will lead somewhere and it can turn out to be a trick to get you to buy more drinks which is particularly common in Latvia’s night clubs.
Easiest way to find brothels in Latvia is to tell a taxi driver to take you to the brothel. Average cost for sex is 40-80€ per one hour. Just tell taxi driver what price range girls you want. Most of the brothels are located inside apartment complex buildings and are called "massage studios" or something else.
Erotic Massage Parlors
There are many different massage studios all over Latvia offering erotic massage on their menus. Usually prices start from 50€ per hour. Some places offer only sensual massage with a hand job, but some places will also offer sex (you have to negotiate the price in the room). Overall Latvia is one of the best places in Europe to go if you like erotic massage. In Latvia most of the time you actually get a good massage and not just a little rub. Also the hand job is done by nice strokes with warm oil.
Transsexuals / Shemales
Gay & Lesbian
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons in Latvia may face legal challenges not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Both male and female same-sex sexual activity are legal in Latvia, but households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for the same legal protections available to opposite-sex couples. The democratization process in Latvia has allowed lesbians and gays to establish organizations and infrastructural elements such as bars, clubs, stores, libraries, etc. Cultural, educational and other events can be held, and lifestyles can be freely developed. However, society has not reached a high level of tolerance.
Only in the capital, Riga, is there a small gay scene. Elsewhere in Latvia, however, the sparse population means there is no gay scene. There are only few people who openly recognize themselves being gay or lesbian, for example journalist Kārlis Streips, and former deputy rector of the Riga Graduate School of Law Linda Freimane. Most people in Latvia have prejudices against homosexuality, usually rooted in social conservatism and lingering preconceptions dating from the Soviet period. An example of this is the belief that homosexuality and pedophilia are linked phenomena. Such popularly-held anti-gay sentiments have recently been increasingly exploited by various religious groups and politicians. Lesbians and gays are often attacked in the streets or in the meeting places. Lesbians and gays can make no criminal charge against their attackers other than "hooliganism".
Sexual Services for Women
You can find male escorts from internet. Some are just a regular Latvian guys trying to get sex, but there is actually some male escorts also in the pack.
Sex Shops & Adult Stores
Most adult shops in Latvia have a good variety of items. Some will also offer erotic massage, striptease and they have private rooms or cinemas for video watching.
Escort Services & Agencies
What is far more prevalent are scams based around prostitution. Latvia is simply not a best choice for sex tourism. Additionally Latvian people are not friendly, so your chances of meeting women in a club or bar are less than that of a friendlier country. Overall, unless you are an astute local or expert pick-up artist.
Special mix of Slavic and Baltic beauty is the reason why tall slender light hair Latvian girls will take your breath away! And it is a fact that you can find extremely high class escort "models" in this Latvia. Unfortunately quality sometimes can be very variable and there are a lot of scams to avoid. Online prostitution sites are full of phoney profiles and fake pictures. Most escort services advertise online. Also in the hotels you can ask for the receptionist about escort services and they will make a call for you.
Although you might not find plenty of 5 star hotels all around Latvia, you will find comfortable places to stay for a reasonable price. There are many hotels to choose from. Prices start from 20 LVL outside of Riga and from 40 LVL in Riga.
Network of youth hostels  is also developing. Dormitory rooms come around 10 lats, single, double rooms start from 20 lats and above.
Camping in parks is usually not allowed. As regards the stealth camping- most of rural land is private, but camping there is always possible; common sense is to ask for a permission of the owner, which in most cases will be gladly granted. However, if there's no such chance, but you decide to camp there nevertheless and are later asked to move, you have to. Paying a small amount of money (1-2 lats) helps in most such cases. Overall, camping outdoors on privately owned land is widely understood, common and accepted; however, staying in one place for more than two days, or really close to a home is not considered good manners. Follow the common sense of stealth camping.
Indicated free camp sites can be found in Latvia, especially in national parks, you can easily camp there. Commercial campgrounds as small businesses are becoming more and more widespread.
So called guest houses and country houses (some on farms) are arguably the best places to stay at in the countryside, and usually for much less money than hotels and better quality than hostels, due to very limited numbers of guests and more personal oriented and specialized service (usually run by families). These come with full amenities and some follow the hotel star ratings. These also provide many recreational activities- from the Latvian popular ancient "pirts" sauna to horse rides etc. This is not only a good way to spend the night, but also an option to spend your holiday. However, usually, guest houses should be called up earlier than the day you plan to arrive, but this can vary depending on the place. Guest houses can be found fairly frequent throughout the country and are usually listed on tourist booklets.
Girl friendly Hotels
- The Hotel Fontaine Royal on Royal Stūrmaņu street 1 has a girl friendly attitude. In its 24/7 bar and club you can find pro and semi-pro girls. The hotel has many facilities like sauna, spa, Turkish bath, mineral bath and massage.
It is generally safe to travel around on your own, although some petty crime exists. A thing to watch out for is bicycle theft, and it is advisable not to leave valuable things in your car. Mind the forest roads, collisions with wildlife animals can easily occur.
When visiting bars and restaurants in Riga, make sure you know the price before you order and follow your spending, so no cheating is possible. Beware of scammers who strike up conversations out of the blue and invite you to visit their favorite club or bar; this is often a favorite way for the mafia how to rob the foreigners, and the police are unlikely to help if you get scammed. The Police of Latvia  has a website with advice for travelers.
Emergency phone number: Fire/Police/Ambulance 112.
If bitten by a dog, wild animal or a snake, seek medical attention immediately. Snakes are not venomous in Latvia, except for the European Adder which is a possible death threat if no treatment is received within the next few hours after the bite. A dog or cat bite can carry the risk of rabies. Mosquitoes carry no disease and are only an annoyance in the summer months.
Forest ticks can be abundant from May-September, depending on previous year's weather, especially in brushwood/scrub areas, but also occasionally in town parks. Their bite carries the risk of tick-born encephalitis (infected ticks can be quite common, vaccination possible before season) and Lyme disease -- less common; delayed or inadequate treatment can lead to disabilities.
