Sex and Prostitution in Manila
The Philippines is a poor country. The people are nice, warm, friendly, and many are desperately poor. Thus they flock to the tourist places and do what they have to do, which is prostitution and tourist trapping.
The first advantage to coming to the Philippines is that you don't need to know a second language to get around. Therefore most of the girls in the bars speak English. They don't always know it well and sometimes you will have to slow down a little for a new girl to understand you. But before too long they will become quite fluent.
Prostitution in the Philippines is illegal. Prostitution is sometimes illegally available through brothels (also known as casa), bars, karaoke bars (also known as KTVs), massage parlors, street walkers, and escort services.
Manila bar girls are typically from the urban slum areas of Manila. Most of them work to support their family. They’re usually teenagers with parents who have no jobs and have other siblings to support. Some are even single mothers.
Legally the drinking age in the Philippines is 18, but sometimes, go go bars sneak in Manila bar girls who are far younger. So the Manila bar girl is typically in her teens to her early 20s. She has the signature Pinay tan skin and petite frame, black hair (unless she had it coloured), and barely-there clothes.
These girls come in all shapes, looks and sizes. Bar girls are usually looking for foreigners to entertain and are into this kind of job hoping that it can be a ticket out of poverty. They are correct to be hopeful as it is very common for Filipina go go girls to eventually marry foreigners. Many of them also successfully migrate abroad with their new husbands, although recent immigration laws have made that more and more difficult.
Be ready to flash the cash in a Manila go go bar. The city’s bar girls have become very professional; they tend to order far too many ladies’ drinks which are diluted so as not to make them too drunk. Private performances cost extra.
One of the most sought after type of Manila bar girls are the ‘cherry girls’. These girls are untouched and would only provide you with alluring company, nothing more. But most Manila bar girls are hospitable, polite and sweet. Most of them know how to speak English well enough to make conversations interesting.

Manila Female Escorts
Signing up for escort services in Manila is a bit risky because you don’t get to see the girl in person before going out on a date (unlike in bars where you get to choose the girl you fancy and even get the chance to ‘test her out’). Sometimes though, escort services pay off too. If you don’t like the girl, you can always send her back and just pay the fare. It is very unlikely that an escort service won’t deliver to your needs; most escort services are seeking a steady and loyal clientele so will accommodate your requests.
Escort girls usually speak better English and are more decent looking than the typical bar girls. Independent escort girls usually post their pictures and are often blunt and honest enough to say what they can offer and what their limits are. Different escort service companies have different rules; sometimes they don’t allow the exchange of phone numbers or taking of any pictures or videos.
The cost of short time calls usually come to around Php 3,000-5,000, while overnight stays can cost as much as Php 10,000. The rates of girls who are handled by professional escort services tend to rise, though you pay for discreetness. Independent girls may be cheaper and the rules may not be as strict.
Red Light Districts
Here are red-light districts in Manila, Philippines. See also Manila Go Go Bars from below.
- Burgos Street - The red-light district in Makati.
- Malate district boasts an equally lively nightlife and its own red light district, particularly in M. Adriatico Street and Remedios Street. As you roam around, you can find prostitutes in the streets and several places where parties can be enjoyed all night long. Malate is accessible via the LRT-Line 1 stopping at Vito Cruz, Pedro Gil, or Quirino stations. An alternative way to get there is by riding a taxi from any point in Manila.
- Ermita is the oldest red light district in Manila and is still active despite efforts of the mayor to clean up its reputation. Resurgence of Japanese and Korean KTV or karaoke bars also made the area more prominent as a source of girls you can take home for a one-night stand.
- EDSA is Manila's unofficial red light district. Real name for this area is "Epifanio De Los Santos Avenue" (EDSA). There are some bars at Pasay side at Roxas Boulevard's Corner, near the Casino Filipino and Heritage Hotel. Those bars have a seedy look and feel to them, but the food, drinks and companionship are cheap. The environment is also more relaxed compared to that of P. Burgos in Makati. The payment for girls varies from Php 1,500-2,000, but it can go up to Php 2,500 if you want to hang out longer.
Prostitutes and Sex Workers
Finding prostitutes when in Manila is not difficult, embarrassing or dangerous. Visiting any one of the areas you will discover a carefree party atmosphere where you can dance, sing (karaoke), drink, eat and meet girls as if you were in your hometown disco.
Prostitute prices start from 1500 up to 5000 php depending of your negotiation skills, time you spend with the girl and how pretty she is.
There are also some regular girls in Manila interested in meeting foreigners for a fling, but that does not necessarily mean they are prostitutes.
Here are some freelancer pick up joints in Manila:
- G. Spot, not on the scale of La Cafe (nothing is) but worth a peek, 10pm on. Prices similar to La Cafe. Small number of available hookers here. Next to nil there during day, reasonable number at night, but nothing special, mostly from 4's to 5's with an occasional 6. Location: From La Cafe, walk across to Mabini St. Note which way the traffic is going (its one way traffic). Walk with the traffic flow in Mabini St and you will be walking in the right direction, to Padre Faura St, turn right into Padre Faura, G.Spot is on the right hand side at 510 Padre Faura (just past Watsons Store), just before 7/11 Store.
- Amazonia, about 100 meter from La Cafe. For example, exiting La Cafe door, turn left and walk against the flow of vehicular traffic in M H Del Pilar St, and on the first corner on your right is Amazonia. This place is trying to rival La Cafe as a Freelance joint but next to nil success to date. There are often no more than 5/10 hookers at any one time. Most of those hookers are overweight and around 35/40 yrs old. Amazonia's main game is 24hr accommodation or short time accommodation. 2-3 minutes walk from La Cafe. Short time rates are : P400 fan (still hot even with fan), P600 with air con. Three hours either room/s. Rooms are ok quality and 24hr basis (P1200/1600).
- Near Hard Rock Cafe and TGIF in Glorietta Shopping Mall in Makati, there are often some freelancer working girls hanging around.
- Sometimes there are freelancers in Robinsons Mall close to Starbucks (4-6pm is the best try), try to get table outside. Other spots in this mall are Figaro's. Also sometimes near to National Book Store (at the base of the Escalator). Fridays and Saturdays in Robinsons mall, there are lots of non hooker girls walking around. A small number of non pro girls looking for some extra money at Robinsons. Rumor has it, some are nursing students from nearby colleges. Don't get your hopes up, but anything is possible at times.
- Harrison Plaza Mall at Harrison St, Malate. Seems first floor (UK), or if your American "2nd floor", there are girls available via pimps who will approach you, for Php 800 short time sex with girl and Php 200 for the pimp. There is a low quality at these prices. Perhaps try below on the ground floor for that, where you would pay max Php 800-1000 and maybe as little as Php 500 for short-time sex with the girl. Various factors affect the end price. A girl who does not normally work as a hooker, and having no pimp connections, would for example be looking for Php 1000-1500 for full short-time sex service. Thats where experience counts, who is a regular hooker and who is not.
Discos with freelancers: It's not guarantee that you will find them always. It's sometimes lucky hunting which might make it more interesting. However there are freelancer working girls to be found in some normal nightclubs and discos.
- (CLOSED) Intercontinental Hotel, Makati. Taxi drivers know it. Rumor tells that it has "Icon Disco" in the basement. Mostly non hookers and wealthier ones who do not need our money. Be careful, if you pick the wrong one (for example Mayor's daughter) you could be in trouble. Small number of freelancers there, but they pay P500 to enter, so do not expect them to be cheap.
- (CLOSED) NewWorld Hotel, opposite entrance to Greenbelt 3 (Cafe Havana). In basement, "Palladium Disco". Relatively 'high class' disco with mostly well off non hookers in residence. Pick up still possible, if you go about it the right way, but be wary about mentioning money to a wealthy one.
- (CLOSED) Republiq in Pasay. The flavor right now. It's at Resorts World, out airport way. Queues to get in. Vast majority non hookers apparently. Drinks, girls, not cheap, but worth a peek. After 12midnight/1am. Mainly young people go there.
- Prive at The Fort.
- 7th High at The Fort.
- Space at Quezon City.
- Excess at Quezon City.
- Palladium at Makati.
- Time at Makati.
- Opus at Pasay.
- Insomnia at Malate.
- ZZYZX and/or Nirvana at Malate (convenient if staying in Ermita).
- Sometimes in Hotel Rotondondo.
Bars usually open at around 21:00 on weekdays, but during the weekends, they can go on as early as 18:00. Picking out a decent bar is crucial to whether you’re going to have a good night or not.
The look of the building tells you a lot about what kinds of bar girls you’ll meet there and the rates and prices. Another tip is to check out the other customers. Are you the only foreigner in there? If yes, then find another place because if you’re the only foreigner, you’re the only one they’re going to milk money from. It can get expensive.
When going to bars, it is best to remove any jewelry or watches. Valuables are likely to be ‘misplaced’ and you’ll probably never find them again. Now, if the place looks good (usually newer buildings with tarpaulins printed with pictures of their attractive bar girls), then be ready with some cash.
Ladies’ drinks for Manila bar girls: Drinks usually cost Php 250-300, but some bars even go higher than that. There are cheaper options that charge only Php175. Bring extra cash, as some bars would ask you to buy ladies’ drinks every 30 minutes. Be wary of cheap looking and sleazy bars. They water down drinks, especially the ones in towers. It’s safer to get drinks in bottles.
Bar fines for Manila bar girls: The usual bar fine is around Php 2,500-3,000 – yes, it is really that expensive. Some bars price even higher than that. But sometimes, if you buy a set of lady drinks – usually about 10 drinks – the bar fine is waived. The cheaper locations charge around Php 1,000 for bar fines.
For those guys that fall in love with a bar girls: Later you might be one of those 200 men that she is chatting with via messenger or Whats App. It's almost always just a business for her to make some money or to find someone to take her to western country.
You can find street walkers in Manila from these areas:
- Street whores in Manila can be found from Makati mainly from Burgos Street. It is entertainment venue that is full on prostitutes and bars. There also many ladyboys trying to find customers. Makati street hookers are relatively cheap compared to go go bars around.
- Greenbelt 3, around Php 120 taxi ride from Ermita area. Greenbelt is the name of a shopping complex/area, take a taxi. Entrance 3: Starbucks (near Glorietta's, and opposite Shangri-la) and the area near Starbucks is a freelance scene. Php 1500-2000 all night full sex.
Meeting horny local girls for free:
Most 'bachelors' visiting Manila opt for the easy solution of visiting go go and girlie bars, but there are also lots of regular girls who aren't prostitutes but keen on meeting foreigners for a fling. Hundreds of lonely and horny modern city girls go looking online for sex with visiting or resident Westerners, no strings attached. They aren't expecting money or a boyfriend and haven't been with scores of other men. The best place to meet these girls is on Adult Friend Finder or Tinder, where there are thousands of registered Filipino female members.

Escort Services and Agencies
- Metro Manila
- Philippines Premium
It is not very common to use escort agencies in Manila because it is much cheaper to buy sex elsewhere from the independent working girls or from the clubs. To avoid the hassle of picking up street girls or if you need more personalized company call to an escort agency in Manila.
Erotic Massage Parlors
Massage Parlors are a must see in Manila. It’s arguable that the best quality girls of the Philippines are here.
What is a Massage Parlor? It is a place which offers a shower, bed, a beautiful girl, massage, and “extra services”. Most KTVs in Metro Manila have an associated Massage Parlor.
Its quality comes with a price though. Prices generally start at 2,500 peso for a one hour room and a beautiful girl but if you are a loose spender you may spend upwards of 5,000 peso or more ($100+ USD). On the other hand it may be less than a generally cheap area such as Angeles City if you factor in the cost of bar hopping, ladies drinks, bar fine, taking your lady out for more bar hopping; then finding out later in the evening that your bar fine is a runner, on menstration, or some other bullshit. Some people prefer a Massage Parlor if I they want to get straight to the point.
Some Manila hotels offer massage service, either in a parlor at the premises or in the privacy of your hotel room. Erotic freelance massage starts at about $30 an hour. Lingam massage is for men and Yoni massage is for women. Some of the massage places also offer a nude body to body massage using authentic Nuru gel.
Massage and Body Rubs
Brothels and Sex Clubs
Many brothels in Manila operate as massage salons. Some of these places are listed on this guide, but the local taxi drivers usually know some other underground whore houses.
- Starfleet, 3rd Floor Oyster Plaza Building. 2 Ninoy Aquino Avenue on the Corner of Kabihasnan Road in Paranaque City near the airport. 850 Php house fee 1200 for tip. Cheaper than Air Force One or 168 Massage.
Strip Clubs and Striptease
Some of the strip joints in Manila have an small entrance fee, but some have a free entrance. Drink prices are quite affordable at the strip bars, but girls drinks can cost a little more. Almost every single girl who work at the Manila strip club, is also working as an escort, so it is possible to take a girl with you and fuck her in a short-time hotel or at your place.
Girls at most strip clubs are only with bikinis first and go for a topless after tipping her.
Karaoke and KTVs
KTVs are a must see in Manila. It’s arguable that the best quality girls of the Philippines are here.
What is a KTV? It stands for Karaoke TV but in the Philippines it has evolved to a nude or semi-nude show as well as a hostess type bar environment. Most KTVs in Metro Manila have an associated Massage Parlor.
If you're having a low budget, KTVs are not probably the best choice for you.

- Sogo ST Hotel, Php 50 taxi ride from La Cafe.

Other Adult Services
Go Go Bars
If you find a girl from a gogo bar you really like you could always ask for her to leave with you but you will have to pay the bar a fee for losing one of their sexy workers and this could cost you anywhere from 500 to 2000 PHP (about $12-$50 USD), plus a negotiable service fee from the girl of your choosing. Prices are always negotiable and all expectations and prices should be made very clear by both parties before you start having fun with a girl, or otherwise you may get scammed. Clubs and Bars around the metro Manila come alive by night and party until way past 2am. Some even extend their operating hours especially during weekends and other specific holidays. Dress codes also apply in some establishments, although rules may vary from club to club. Old Manila go go bars usually do not impose any strict dress codes, but just to be sure, do not wear shorts and flip flops. Drinks cost Php 60 to Php 80; upscale places upwards of Php 90-120, while 'ladies' drinks cost from about PhP 100.
Some of the more popular strips around the area include the famed Ermita district where the equally famous LA Café is located. This particular club has two “sections” – one for those who prefer live music, while the other plays more lively and dance-able music. The ground floor tends to be the hangout for the newer girls. If you want attention from the ladies, buy a bottle of tequila (about Php 1,500) and give away some shots.
There are also two main go go areas outside of old Manila, namely, Makati’s Burgos Street and the area towards the end of Edsa in Pasay City. These areas have the reputation of having the most entertaining bars and clubs, the best-looking entertainers, and the widest variety of ladies. This area is often compared to Bangkok’s Nana Plaza. The entertainment complex provides a series of electric bars, nightclubs and other entertaining spots for you to try out and explore. This entertainment complex has just about everything that you can ask for in a bustling night strip with a hodgepodge of go go bars.
Here are some go-go bars in Manila:
- La Cafe, located in Ermita area. Probably the most recommended bar to visit in Manila! Not recommended to walk around streets leading to or from La Cafe at night. Mostly petty street crime admittedly but could turn nasty. Gang members could quickly appear if you become aggressive. Take a Taxi.
- Havana Cafe, take a taxi to "Greenbelt, entrance 3, New World Hotel". Should be P120-150 from La Cafe (La Cafe) area. If he is a good driver he will drop you in front of Greenbelt 3 entrance. Otherwise he will drop you in front of New World. If so, walk across the road to large shopping complex directly opposite, with Greenbelt 3 sign across it. Enter inside building, keep going straight through doors until on your right you see a crowd of chicks and some guys sitting at tables. Ask Complex security guards, if in doubt where Cafe Havana is. Tables outside Cafe Havana itself is where the hookers sit/prowl. Also close by Starbucks and Seattle Coffee, there are some freelance hookers hanging around.
- "Universe Entertainment & KTV Bar - #2374 F.B. Harrison St on the corner of Liberated St in Pasay City. P500 entrance and beer most probably P100 or more nowadays. They don't expect to see customer again so beware of getting scammed or cheated some how.
- "Asia Entertainment" (AE) sexy show girls, location 701 Roxas Boulevard, Baclaran, Parnaque. All taxi drivers know it. When pronouncing Roxas you say "Raw-harse".
Corner of Epifanio De Los Santos Avenue (EDSA) and F.B Harrison Streets, not far from the corner of Roxas Boulevard. Around P90 taxi ride from La Cafe area. Say to taxi driver: "Edsa bars girls, opposite Heritage Hotel". Approx nine/ten bars. Open 7pm - 3/4am. There is an ordinary looking two level building where you will see the GoGo Bar signs outside. Every taxi driver should know it. Average Prices: Your Beer P120, Ladies Drink P195, but make sure its a 'single' and not a double ladies drink (P390). Bar Fine P1400/1600. Tip expected next morning by the girl varies, anything from P1500/2000 up. P2500/3000 tip if you did not sort this out back at the bar BEFORE you paid the barfine. These girls are not worth that much so avoid silly prices and check it all out beforehand.
Here are some bars in Edsa area:
- Cotton Club
- Bullets and Arrows (formerly My Fair Lady).
- Club VIP
- Firehouse (one of the big names)
- Space Club

The safest one with reasonable prices is the EDSA Entertainment Complex (Open: 19:00-02:00; Pasay City) – a building with about eight or so bars inside. The bars are not too high-end like the ones in Makati or Quezon City, but also not too sleazy and too cheap like most bars in Ermita.
Don't forget , as advised elsewhere , take care of your valuables , some girls are not averse to stealing from your room (incl. drugging you before hand , exceptional , but can happen) , others are under 18yrs and can cost you as much as Pesos 100,000 if Police get involved. If you don't pay requested police bribe you might end up in prison for many years. Exceptions admittedly , but can happen. Just be aware of these possibilities.
Also take care with your health , ie wear condoms. These gals are not checked regularly (or ever) for STD's etc. Scams , rackets , theft is more likely in Manila , but can happen in other towns/cities too.
