Lyon, also written Lyons in English, is the third largest city in France and centre of the second largest metropolitan area in the country. It is the capital of the Rhône-Alpes region and the Rhône département. It is known as a gastronomic and historical city with a vibrant cultural scene. It is also the birthplace of cinema.

Sex Scene and Prostitution

Prostitution in France (the exchange of sexual services for money) was legal until April 2016, but several surrounding activities were illegal like operating a brothel, living off the avails (pimping) and paying for sex with someone under the age of 18 (the age of consent for sex is 15).

The stand-out measure from the bill and the one that has caused the most controversy is the law that will see customers fined if they are caught paying for sex.

By making the clients rather than the prostitutes the guilty party the reform will “turn the current law on its head,” according to French Socialist MP Maud Olivier, who has been the driving force behind the change.

Under the plan, customers will be fined up to €1,500 and up to €3,750 for repeat offenders.

It estimated that about 15,000 – 20,000 women work as prostitutes in France. In 2010, the number of full-time male and female prostitutes was estimated at 20,000 – 30,000, with 80% being foreigners. Sex work in France, like other countries takes many forms. These include street prostitution, escort services, bars and apartment prostitution.

In 2003 the prostitution laws in Lyon lead local prostitutes in to get creative. White vans line the city and suburban streets in this city; an open door means they're open for business, a closed door (and rocking van) means you'll have to come back later for your turn.

Studies from 2003 estimated that about 15,000 – 20,000 girls work as prostitutes in France. In 2010, the number of full-time male and female sex workers was estimated at 20,000 – 30,000, with 80 to 90% being foreigners. Most of the sex workers come from Bulgaria, Romania, Nigeria, Cameroon, China and South America.

In 2004, the average earnings of a French sex worker were estimated at €500 a day. For Sub-Saharian sex workers living in France, it was less, around €200–300. Some barely made €50–150 a week.

Escort Services & Agencies

Finding an escort when you’re travelling can be a bit tricky. An ideal alternative to escorts is a girl who is looking for a mutually beneficial relationship. There are thousands of horny girls willing to do anything for a generous guy. Click Here to hookup with a beautiful young woman now.

Average price for one hour with a Lyon escort is between 150-300€. Short time like 15 to 30 minutes can be purchased for around 100€. Most Lyon escort work from the private flats. Foreign escort and working girls from the other French cities often work from the hotels. You should always negotiate beforehand with the girl about the services you require. Anal sex, role playing, pissing and other fetishes always cost a little extra like around 50€ more.


If you are planning to bring girls or hookers to your room and have sex with them, it is more recommended to rent an apartment from Lyon. There are many good flats for a rent under 100 Euro per night and basic rooms are as cheap as 50 Euro a night. Some small hotels may give you a trouble especially if you bring a sex worker to your room at the middle of the night. You should look for the rooms around the areas with prostitution activity mentioned above, so you have a shorter trip to go to your place once you find a prostitute.

For sex-tourists visiting Lyon and hoping to have sex with beautiful Lyon girls and sex workers on their trip, should get an airbnb or a hotel as close to the Bellecour, Presqu’ile, Vieux Lyon and along the banks of the Rhone. All of these areas are very close to each other and home to many of the singles nightclubs and pick-up bars of Lyon. Many of the escorts also have apartments at these areas, so you can easily do in-calls to their apartments and they can also to out-calls to your room, since it is nearby!

These are also the expensive parts of town, but it is worth of every euro to stay at these areas.

How ever if you are on a very low budget and just want to fuck a hooker once, you could stay out of the city center. Renting a room somewhere near a TCL Metro stop is a good option since the public transportation in Lyon is very good and can get you into city center very fast!

But getting a prostitute or a single girl from a tinder to hook up with you after a short date and then taking a metro ride is not as easy as walking across the street to a nearby city center hotel for a rapid sex session or a quick fuck.

Bellecour and Prequ’ile are more high-end and modern. Vieux Lyon is like the old town area of the city, you will find plenty of pubs and singles bars there.

Stay Safe

Real security problems in the Lyon center are rare, but the usual advice applies.

Rue Ste Catherine, behind Place des Terreaux, is locally famous for its bars; on weekend nights there are a lot of drunk people on the street, who might be violent. The police keep a close watch but it is probably better to avoid the area if you are on your own, especially after 3AM when the bars are closed. Similar problems may be encountered in Vieux Lyon.

In populated places such as Rue de la République or outside Part-Dieu station, you may come across people advertising for charities; they can be recognised by their specific, coloured clothing. They will not ask you for money but rather give you information documents which encourage you to donate. Homeless people sell newspapers such as Macadam or Sans-abri which help them making some money without begging; they should have an ID card issued by the editors. But there are also people trying to con you and get money for some imaginary charity, sometimes by selling postcards or other items. Never give money directly to someone on the street who claims to be working for charity and does not have official documents, or if the documents look doubtful.
