At first glance, one could think that escorts and other sex workers in Beijing are performing a legal job it’s so common wherever you go. But paid sex is completely illegal. The Chinese authorities see it as a product of capitalism and therefore hate it with a passion. At least that’s what the government officials act like until they get caught red-handed with an under aged prostitute. You know what they say, men will always eat, drink, gamble and ****, you can’t put shackles on human nature. Escorts and other working girls in Beijing are everywhere, from cheap massage parlours to some of the world’s most expensive nightclubs. The scene is a mirror image of the one in Shanghai, albeit a bit shadier.
Taxi drivers will attempt to hook you up with prostitutes. They usually have a deal with brothels and get a cut for every sucker they drop by. They get a cut, you often get a bill inflated by a couple of thousand $ and a black eye if you’re unlucky.
Escorts in Beijing are usually a safe bet. Remember one thing: if an escort has a huge bodyguard, resembling a gorilla, then she’s not an independent call girl but a regular whore with a pimp. Those can cause you some trouble. Beijing Escort (http://www.beijing-escort.net/), GFE Beijing Escort (https://www.gfebeijingescort.com/) are examples of solid and reliable escort agencies.
Most agencies have only Asian girls on board. Diva Ladies (http://divaladies.com/) has an impressive choice of western women, who are highly valued in China. In Beijing escorts are a bit pricy for this part of the world; an hour will cost upwards from $150. The beautiful Russian and European elite escorts will charge you even more.
Mongolian women are gaining popularity as well. They are usually more open-minded than the local girls who come from the rural areas in China. And apart from that they are loved for their appearances, which are often an interesting blend of Asian and Russian features. I’ve seen a sumo documentary about how Mongolian fighters are highly sought after. Coincidence? I don’t think so; there must be a connection. The Mongolian ladies are often also the girls who are hunting foreigners or the other way around in the local discos and nightclubs.
Beijing is notorious for its bar and club prostitution. Many bars and clubs where the expats, businessmen and tourists go have the reputation of being pick-up places for local girls. Maggie’s bar at Jianwai Street is probably the most notorious one. This local nightlife evergreen located at the South Gate of Ritan Park opened its doors in 1990 and is still very popular with foreigners looking for local girls and freelance escorts. Some girls might propose ridiculous prices for accompanying you to your hotel or apartment. It will depend on your negotiation skills; remember that prices tend to drop later in the night when girls can become a bit desperate.
While Maggie’s Bar can feel a bit old fashioned, that is certainly not the case with some other hyper modern night and dance clubs in Beijing. Mix Club is an American styled night club: a huge 2 floors dance temple situated at Workers’ Stadium N Road and open 7 days per week. Do an outgoing atmosphere and the largest dance floor in town, packed with stunning and fun-seeking local girls sound like music in your ears? Then you should definitely add Mix Club to your bucket list when being in Beijing.
The old red light districts of Beijing from the times of the Ming Dynasty are long gone. Nowadays there are no official areas like that but streetwalkers are known to roam around the Yansha Bridge and Sanlitun North Street.
The girls usually stand in groups of 5 and fiercely compete for clients. It can get brutal, especially when the pimps join in. I wouldn’t bother but if you’re some kind of an adrenaline junky then you should know that a blowjob would cost you $30 tops.
