Yogyakarta— despite the official spelling, the name is usually pronounced and not uncommonly written Jogjakarta or just Jogja (JOGH-jah) — is a major tourist destination in Indonesia. It is the capital city of the province of Yogyakarta Special Region which is in the southern part of the Central Java province, Indonesia.
Yogyakarta is a bustling town of some 500,000 people and the most popular tourist destination on Java, largely thanks to its proximity to the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan. The town is a center of art and education, offers some good shopping and has a wide range of tourist facilities.
Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution in Indonesia is legally considered a "crime against decency/morality", although it is widely practiced, tolerated and regulated. Some women are financially motivated to become prostitutes, while others may be forced by friends, relatives or strangers.
Red Light Districts
A red-light district is a part of an urban area where there is a concentration of prostitution and sex-oriented businesses, such as sex shops, strip clubs, adult theaters, etc. The term originates from the red lights that were used as signs of brothels. There are areas in many big cities around the world which have acquired an international reputation as red-light districts. Some red-light districts have acquired a touristic interest beyond sex tourism, and can be perceived as places of artistic, historic or cultural interest, whether or not they still serve the sex trade.
Sosrowijayan is the main place for all kind of prostitutes around Yogyakarta.
Sosrowijayan district is for backpackers and it is also known as pussy market. There you'll find all kind of girls, but mostly young women. Prices are from 100rupiah and up.
Malioboro Mall is a place where you can find some local girls working in small stands selling everything from phones to perfume. These girls are really open minded and dreaming that one day they will leave in western world. Just ask one to come for a coffee you might get lucky and get sex for free. Evening time these girls goes to bars called Hugos, Bosche or Liquid.
There might be some underground strip clubs in Yogyakarta.
In the district of Sosrowijayan is a bar called Lucifer. It is not a brothel, but not far from that. All the girls inside and those who are rooming around outside are prostitutes and searching for customers. Beer is cheap and huge selection of different girls. Remember that when it is ramadan (muslims holy month for fasting) the bars will be mostly empty.
Erotic Massage Parlors
The general deal here is you pay around 250-300k and you get a whole day in a spa with sauna, steam room, hot and cold pool, jacuzzi, lounge, all you can eat buffet and a massage with a handjob to finish. Amazing value. Great places to spend all day hungover and with some truly stunning chicks. However, not all of them will do extras, and some will try to charge a fortune for it. If you go regularly, you should find girls who will let you fuck them for 500k, and they will be worth it in terms of their looks alone.
When you sit in the lounge you will be approached by the woman or mamasan (not as scary and crazy as a typical mamasan), you can always inquire about full service just in case they won't give it. There are loads of these places. You will be given a menu when you go in. It doesn't mention sexual services on the menu of course, but if you pay a bit more you can get a room with a jacuzzi, or a room with two therapists, or a bit longer in the room. Some places you can have two girls for 2 hours with jacuzzi and karaoke for about 700k, which should include hand jobs, but keep in mind prices for extra services will vary depending on the girl.
Transsexuals / Shemales
There is not a specific place tee-girls and in a muslim country they have to be a bit careful. So the easiest way is to check online.
Gay & Lesbian
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Indonesia will face legal challenges and prejudices not experienced by non-LGBT residents. Traditional mores disapprove of homosexuality and cross-dressing, which impacts public policy. For example, Indonesian same-sex couples and households headed by same-sex couples are not eligible for any of the legal protections available to opposite-sex married couples. The importance in Indonesia for social harmony leads to duties rather than rights to be emphasized, which means that human rights along with homosexual rights are very fragile. Yet, the LGBT community in Indonesia has steadily become more visible and politically active.
Sexual Services for Women
It is really easy for a western woman to find a companion in Indonesia.
Sex Shops & Adult Stores
Escort Services & Agencies
You'll find a lot of escorts in Yogyakarta online.
Many hotels allow you bring guests (girls) in your room. If you have a friend or two, renting an apartment or villa is better and most probably cheaper option than hotel.
Like any other larger Indonesian city, Yogya has its share of petty crime like pickpocketing, especially in local city busses. Watch out for gallery scams and streetsellers trying to get commission for batik. These scams tend to occur around the Kraton and Jl. Malioboro. Scammers will approach tourists and tell them about a government art centre or school with fair prices, and will hire cheap transport or refer you to the 'genuine' gallery. However there are no official government sponsered galleries. This scam might kill a couple of nice hours when they explain how batik is being made, but in the end you're still being manipulated into buying too expensive art.
