Sex Scene and Prostitution

Prostitution is illegal in Taiwan, and yet it is everywhere. Prostitutes hang about in bars, karaoke halls, massage parlours and hairdressers, and call single men in their hotel rooms at night to offer sex. A high proportion of them are migrant workers who travel from the countryside to big cities like Taichung in search of work. Prostitutes from mainland China are finding business increasingly abundant in Taiwan's southern and central regions, where they are offering services directly to homes of clients for NT$500 (US$17) an hour. Their openness to accomodate is changing the world of Taiwan's underground prostitution market.

Red Light Districts

It’s really easy to find a Red Light District in Taiwan. What’s even easier is to find a Lady KTV, where it’s basically like renting your own little VIP/Champagne Room for two hours.

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

Mostly you find girls from KTV's.

For foreigners local non prostitute girls are easy too. Go to a bar at 10pm and start drinking and meeting girls – take one into a private setting for two hours – take them to a hotel/motel for three hours, and call it a night.

Street Hookers

Taichung does not have a well know street for street girls. Girls are inside KTV's, Brothels and massage parlors.

Strip Clubs & Lap Dance

First, strip clubs exist in Taiwan, but they are insanely difficult to find. They are always a bit a way from the city center, closest one is an hour drive. If you want to find one so make friends with some local without them your screwed. Most Taiwanese girls don’t shave anything below the waist and most have some hair in the chest too. Charge for your typical strip club is $20US and it gets you into the club with a couple of beers.

A lap dance will be $3US and can last anywhere from thirty seconds to five minutes.


When you walk into a Lady KTV, you are basically served a buffet of girls. Most Lady KTV don’t charge covers, though you are expected to buy a bottle when you walk in – that will cost you $1000NT (~$35US). You might also have to pay $200-300NT (~$7-10US) to buy one of the girls a drink, and then sit and chat with her and see how you like her. If you like her, you can get yourself a booth. Now, you don’t have to go that route. You can just walk in, buy a bottle of Scotch, point to a girl and say, “I’ll take her!” and that’s that – off to the booth with you!

Booths cost $3000-$4000 (~$110-145US) for two hours, unless you’re going to crazy expensive places (like Gold Money Jaguar, where it can cost $10000NT (~$330US) for two hours). But, your service is going to vary depending on who you pick, and it’s best to determine that before you get locked-in with a girl. Generally-speaking, you have three grades of KTV girl:

  • Grade A: slammin’ hot and not obligated to do much, because of that. They’ll sit, drink, flirt, and sing – if you’re lucky, they might get topless.
  • Grade B: not as hot as Grade A, but are willing to do much more. They will likely be completely naked after an hour and will be extremely friendly and fun. Sometimes, you might even get a blowjob, depending on how much of a gentleman you are.
  • Grade C: just like a strip club, you’ll always have the busted cast. They might be uglier or older, but they’re going to be extremely willing to please; even having sex is not off-the-table.

So it’s really a question of what you want, when you go. Most guys will tell you to go for a Grade B – it’s a good compromise. But, understand, these grades are made my the clients – you can’t ask the KTV, “Can you give me a nice B-Grade girl?” They won’t know what you mean. So it’s best to bring a Taiwanese friend to negotiate, to be sure you get what you want. Negotiating with a pimp in a Red Light District, you can be as direct as you want…but at a Lady KTV, you have to have a little finesse.
