Sex and Prostitution in Santiago de Chile
Although adult prostitution is legal in Chile, bordellos are not. Several hundred women were registered as prostitutes with the National Health Service. Police often detained prostitutes (usually as a result of complaints by neighborhood residents) on charges of "offenses against morality," which could lead to a 50,000 pesos fine or five days in prison.
Santiago is a fast growing city located in the central valley of Chile between the Andes mountains range to the east and the Cordillera of the Coast to the west. The metropolitan area has about seven million inhabitants.
Santiago Female Escorts
Chilean escorts advertising online is getting more and more popular. Santiago has the best selection of escorts in Chile.
Red Light Districts
While there are no dedicated red light districts, it is helpful to understand the administrative division of Santiago: There is no Greater Santiago administration. The city if formed by numerous independent comunas, and only the very city center is named Santiago. Most prostitution is found in the center (Santiago), and the three comunas eastward (Providencia, Las Condes, and Vitacura). As the the wealth of these comunas as well increases towards the east, as a rule of thumb one can assume prostitution in the city center to be "economy", Providencia "business", and Las Condes and Vitacura "first class". Individual comunas adopt different takes on prostitution, and Café con Piernas, everywhere in center and still found in Providencia, do not exist in Las Condes or Vitacura. Similarly, cheap "topless" type stripclubs and massage parlors are not found in Las Condes or Vitacura, but VIP Clubs and prostitutes working in apartments are.

Nightclubs and Bars
There are lots of amazing nightclubs and bars in Santiago de Chile where you can try your luck to find sex for free. Santiago is huge city with lots of partying locals, tourists, expats and students.
There are also lots of these funny cafés (café con pierna). You can read about these CCPs from above.
Café con Piernas / Pleno Centro
Café con Piernas (CCP) are a Chilean specialty. They cover a spectrum from perfectly respectable places (well, sort of), to completely seedy ones. The absolute majority is located in the Santiago downtown area (centro). All serve coffee, juices, water etc. Typical price is 1-2k$. Because the CCPs are located in the "centro" business area, they are open almost all day, and have a day- and night-shift of girls. In a typical sized CCP 5 to 10 girls work one shift.
- The "perfectly respectable" ones have open doors and transparent windows, the coffee is served over a bar by good looking girls in miniskirt uniforms. If you speak Spanish, you can have a nice chat with them, or just look at the girls.
- The more erotic variant has covered windows, and the girls wear lingerie or something similarly revealing. The lighting inside is subdued. The offered service, though, is quite the same is in the former category, the girls stay typically behind the bar and you in front of it. Though they won't offer any action, they admittedly are very nice to look at and nice to chat with.
- Finally, there are CCPs with some action. From outside, they just look like the merely more erotic ones, you will have to find which one is which out by going in and having a drink. The girls, however, will join you on your side of the bar, if there even is one separating you, and ask you to sponsor a drink (2-3k$). After they fetch a tiny glass of water (probably just for the records), you will get some heavy petting. Depending on the custom of the place and the mood of the girls, this can go quite far, especially if you sponsor more than one drink, like fondling breasts and pussy, sucking her nipples. In the best case, her hand might even find the way into your trousers and do some bare tugging on your little friend. Some girls may offer an additional blow-job in a back room for about 10-15k$, and may also offer to be available after their shift; the latter two not being the rule, though.
Girls range from young and beautiful to fat and old. If you don't like the girls in one place, just leave without ordering, or don't sponsor her a drink and go to the next one: Santiago centro has CCPs at literally every corner, and on the streets between the corners as well, as well as inside the galerias. The following list is necessarily very incomplete:

By South American standards Santiago is a safe city, but visitors should be aware of pickpocketing and other petty crimes. Avoid parks at night and don't wear expensive looking jewelry or watches even during the day, unless you are in Las Condes or Vitacura. If you're alone, avoid large crowds of people, especially downtown.
There are some neighbourhoods/barrios that should be avoided. Even if few carabineros and locals speak English, they are the ones who know which areas are to be avoided since some of them are accessible by metro. If you see fewer tall buildings and more houses with barred windows and entrances, then turn back. The changes happen very slowly, unlike some other Latin American cities, so you'd have to travel quite a lot from a wealthy safe neighbourhood to a dangerous ghetto. Avoid especially La Legua (not to be confused with La Ligua in the V Región or La Lengua on sale at the carnicería) which is famed in Chile for its high crime rates and single police cars won't even enter the area. When police have to enter this area they sometimes use armoured cars.
Try staying away from the following comunas: Lo Espejo, La Pintana, Puente Alto (especially the Plaza de Armas), La Cisterna, San Joaquín, El Bosque (not to be confused with a neighbourhood located around metro El Golf, which is in Las Condes), San Ramón and La Granja unless you know exactly where you're going. Though these places are not completely unsafe for the most part, they can have a few unsafe spots and don't have much touristic significance.
The safest comunas are Providencia, Vitacura and Las Condes. All of them have lots of local security guards, besides Carabineros, and locals are more likely to speak english, especially young people. They are not completely safe, though: petty theft still takes place, so keep your eyes open. Lo Barnechea can be tricky as it is the only comuna that has both extremely wealthy and extremely poor neighbourhoods; "La Dehesa" is wealthy and safe, "Cerro Dieciocho" is as dangerous as Cerro Veinte and La Legua.
You can usually trust in the Chilean Police (Carabineros). Although you can hardly find one who can speak English, they will try to answer your questions, solve your problems or give you orientations. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO BRIBE Chilean Police.
