Sex Scene and Prostitution
Montreal has made itself known globally with its budding sex culture. In the most liberal province of Canada, it has often been compared to Amsterdam by more than one objective critic. During the United States prohibition, Montreal became a hub of gangsters looking for a good time. With this surge of tourism, not only did the authorities turn a blind eye, but it became en vogue for women of little means to apply to the various brothels. After the two world wars and the return of the soldiers, the brothels made enough money to pay off the fines and keep a regular clientele satisfied.
Although brothels themselves were shut down sometime in the 50s, street hookers, escorts, and strip clubs have become quite trendy. Today there are over 6000 men and women working in the sex industry, generating an estimated $350 million per year!
Red Light Districts
There is no official red-light district in Montreal, although the definition of the boundaries has varied according to both the source and the time period. According to Viviane Namaste in 1973, it was bordered by René Lévesque Boulevard to the south, Sherbrooke Street to the north, Saint Laurent Boulevard to the west and Saint Denis Street to the east. According to Daniel Proulx, it was defined early in the twentieth century by Sherbrooke Street to the north, Saint-Denis Street to the east, Bleury Street to the west and by Old Montreal to the south. Proulx claims that today, it has shrunk to centre on the corner of Sainte-Catherine and Saint-Laurent, the area's historical heart.
Prostitution, gambling and drinking were more prevalent in this area because of its proximity to the city center, which is often a major tourist attraction, and the high density of liquor shops (taverns, bars, night clubs, cabarets, etc.).
The future of Montreal's red light district may be heading down a new path. Many well-recognized organizations are rallying to legalize prostitution in order for it to be more protected and safe for both the seller and customer. If all goes according to plan, soon we may see Montreal becoming as sexy and liberal as Amsterdam and maybe there would even be a window prostitution area some day.
Prostitutes and Sex Workers
Prostitutes in Montreal can be found from the streets, massage parlors, clubs and private apartments. Sex prices vary a lot, but usually the cheapest sex can be purchased from the streets.
Street walkers can be found usually down by St. Catherine and St. Laurant intersection area and east of that. Montreal street whores usually charge $50-$200 for hour, depending what time it is and how busy they are. Just be careful with the street girls as sometimes they try to pull scams and many of them have STD´s.
Strip Clubs and Lap Dance... further results
Mostly along Montreal's major downtown drag, Rue Ste Catherine, you'll see bright signs advertising the cheapest and sexiest dancers at almost every intersection. Drinks at Montreal strip bars are measured (1oz), and can run $7-$12 on average. Lapdance cost average $15-$30 per song and a common scam is for the stripper to lie about the number of dances they performed. In Montreal they don’t ask if you want another dance; the meter just keeps running. To avoid this pre-pay the strippers and save yourself a large bill. Don’t tip them unless you really want to. Cover charge is $10-15$ usually. Club Super Sexe and Le 281 are most popular strip clubs in Montreal. Some of the Montreal gentlemen´s club also offer lunch specials.
Brothels and Sex Clubs
Montreal does not have real brothels like in Frankfurt and every other city in Germany, but it has many massage parlours where you get pussy for $100-$200. There are hundreds of erotic massage ‘brothels’ flourishing in Montreal despite federal anti-prostitution law. Many of the erotic massage salons are open 24/7 and illegally employ women who have sex with men in the massage rooms. Police does usually leave them alone as they mostly go after the pimps and the street prostitutes.

Prices vary from as little as $20 up to hundreds of dollars. Some AMP´s are open 24 hours, and many advertise online.

Visitors to Montreal will feel much safer than in other cities in North America. Montreal is a large city so use your common sense as petty crime such as pick pocketing is still always a threat. Don't carry valuables and ensure that you use the safe at your hotel or motel. Take care around rue St Catherine and east of Place des Arts during the nighttime as there are many junkies, hookers and homeless people. Avoid the city parks at nighttime and be vigilant if you are out late at night, especially near the bars and clubs.
