Sex and Prostitution in London
In the United Kingdom, sex work itself (the exchange of sexual services for money) is legal but a number of related activities, including soliciting in a public place, kerb crawling, owning or managing a brothel, pimping and pandering, are crimes.
Sex workers in London are being forced to slash prices they charge clients because of the impact of the recession on the British economy and an influx of foreign competition, putting themselves at greater risk of attack, according to a report.
Sex workers reported they were being forced to charge 50 per cent less now than they had done a few years ago as they coped with the impact of the struggling economy like the rest of Britain.
That meant sex workers, who often worked alone, were accepting clients who appeared more dangerous, putting them at risk of rape, sexual assault, physical abuse and robbery.
The number of women selling sex on their own off-street had increased considerably in the last few years, with the majority hailing from Eastern Europe, South America, particularly Brazil, and South East Asia, especially China and Thailand, it added.
The primary website for finding independent escorts in London and UK is adultwork.com The site is designed in such a way so it is not searchable by Google. For example if you search for "London escorts" you will not be able to find it. So either you know about this site or you don't.
When I searched adultwork for escorts in London I found over 10 thousands ladies. The site allows to search by services provided, ethnicity and location. It also allows to post and read reviews.
I only become aware about this site after becoming friendly with escorts who used to work in the UK but came to the USA looking for better opportunities. To search for escorts click on "Search Members" under the "Search" menu.
Another great site is vivastreet.co.uk Go to "Adult" tab and then click on "Escorts & Massages". It has about 2 thousand escorts in London area.
Last but not least there are sex sites used by minorities, for example there is a Polish site angolia.co.uk Once there click on the green tab "TOWARZYSKIE UK". This will open up a list of escort ads from Polish girls living in UK (ads are in Polish).
Several years ago I spend several days looking for street prostitution in London and I was not able to find any. The business moved online so don't bother looking on streets.
Considered one of two of the world's leading "global cities", London remains an international capital of culture, music, education, fashion, politics, finance and trade.

Red Light Districts
London's main Red-light district is located in a small area in Soho. Red Light district area in Soho includes following streets: Brewer Street, Walker's Court, Tisbury Court, Green's Court, Peter Street and Rupert Street. There are many brothels, sex shops and lap dancing clubs in Soho and police sometimes raids them. The tricky part is finding the right girls in Soho. And there are still no shortage of hustlers, clippers and thieves looking to trick you out of your hard-earned cash and leave you without a lay. If you have trouble finding brothels in Soho, ask one of the rickshaw drivers where are they located. Soho is also known as London's gay village.

According to a health center in London, many former sex workers have returned to the streets in 2013 due to the tough economic climate.

As those types of jobs become difficult to find, the sex workers go back to the streets and charge customers $30 (£20) per act.
Foreign escorts provide 24h service at Hartley Hotel across the street from the Met's Forest Gate nick in east London. Prostitutes are selling full sex service for as little as £30 at this seedy hotel opposite a police station. On TripAdvisor's website Hartley Hotel is logically rated one of the worst in London.
Other sex workers in the city also charge $30 for sex. The Economist interviewed numerous escorts who all said that in 2013 they were lowering their prices.
Most central London street based sex workers inhabit around King's Cross and Tottenham Court Road, but London is a big place and the type who have their own houses (so called "in-call") can be situated anywhere. These street based sex workers can be found mostly at night time and they are asking for £20 - £30 for a oral performance and some prostitutes offer sex for as little £30.

You cannot legally be discriminated against in any area of the UK for your sexuality. Recently, a gay couple won their case for discrimination after a hotel turned them away saying they only took married couples. British society is generally not homophobic and attitudes have changes beyond recognition in the past 20 years. There are some areas where you may want to not be overtly showing your sexuality (very remote villages, 'tough' places such as football matches) but even these in these environments attitudes have changes. Being homophobic is now the taboo in the UK where being LGBT+ used to be. However, teenagers are still openly homophobic and they, particularly males, are very likely to verbally or physically attack openly LGBT+ travellers.

Like many big cities, London has a variety of social problems, especially begging, drug abuse and theft (mobile phones are a favourite, often snatched by fast-moving cyclists).
Clip Joint Scam
Every night, Soho presents a particular danger: the "clip joint". The usual targets of these establishments are lone male tourists. Usually, an attractive woman will casually befriend the victim and recommend a local bar or even a club that has a "show". The establishment will be near-desolate, and, even if the victim has only a drink or two, the bill will run to hundreds of pounds. If payment is not immediately provided, the bouncers will lock the "patrons" inside and take it by force or take them to an ATM and stand over them while they extract the cash.
To be safe, if a woman you just met suggests you a place, try to recommend a different bar. If she insists on hers then walk away and do not listen to her suggestions. Sometimes this con trick takes place when someone is lured into a private club with the promise of something perhaps more than a drink (like a 'private show' or sex for a small amount of money). A 'hostess fee' will appear on the bill for several hundred pounds, even though there has been nothing more than polite conversation.
Another ,scam is a pretty woman will strike up conversation with a lone man on a street. She'll offer herself for a set price. But she'll ask for an advance, before proceeding to her flat. At the street below 'her flat' she'll ask for the rest of the money just in 'case the police comes'. At this point, a taxi will suddenly appear and she'll jump in, while her pimp will cover her retreat and threaten the 'client' if he reacts...this usually happens early in the morning when most of the clubs are closed.
