The Moldovan law prohibits escort services and other forms of prostitution but paid sex is common and widespread, as it often is in impoverished countries. And so is human traffic, Moldova is one of the major centres of that heinous crime in Europe. Young women from small villages are lured in and getting smuggled abroad under the false promise of well-paying work. Especially Turkish pimping gangs are infamous for these practices and many illegal brothels in Istanbul are packed with Moldovan girls working under inhuman conditions. Those that stay in the country don’t have it much better either, many women are being forced into prostitution while the government is both incompetent and blind towards hardships of people they should protect. That’s the main reason I prefer escorts, they usually work out of their own volition and the quality of the experience is incomparable.
The escorts in Chișinău (or Kishinev as it’s called in Russian) who are advertising online are often upper-class girls looking for high paying clients. Escort agencies such as MD Escorts (http://www.md-escorts.com/) or MoldEscorts (http://www.moldescort.com/) are tailor-made for the international clientele. It will cost you anywhere from €50 to €150 per hour, something around €500 for an entire night. Those two are maybe safe bets but Moldovan escort sites are full of adware and shady marketing. Just keep that in mind. There are tons of fake pictures published on escort sites operating from Eastern Europe and Moldova is definitely no exception. Do you self a favour and always check the pictures via reverse image tools offered by Google (https://images.google.com/), Yandex (https://yandex.com/images/) and TinEye (https://tineye.com/). Asking the escort girl for selfies or requesting a video call with her could be wise as well. You can also throw the telephone number in Google to check whether the number is not in use at the same time by many other girls and agencies. Then you know at least whether you are really dealing with an independent escort or not.
You can find a brothel here and there, but those like to stay under the radar and keep a parasitic relationship with cab drivers, you can openly ask your taxi guy. Like it or not: the real action happens in real life. There might be no red lights district in Chișinău but working girls are regulars in popular clubs, bars, and hotel lobbies. Try Art Club Karaoke at Constantin Negruzzi Blvd 2/4 or Kira's Club at Veronica Micle Street 7. There’s always the chance that the girl you’re hitting on actually isn’t a prostitute, listen to the mongers’ 6th sense and you’ll be fine.
Streetwalkers don’t really get much attention in Chișinău nowadays; they often hang in front of hotels and busy streets, wearing the usual working girl attires. You can also come across some prostitutes around Calea Basarabiei Street. Keep in mind that those are often below average but at least they’re cheap. Sex with a corner girl will cost you around €30.
The problem with getting laid for money in Moldova isn’t the legal situation, but the economic one. People are leaving this country en masse, including women who are genuinely beautiful, in search of a better life. Don’t be surprised if finding someone attractive gets tricky. Your chances to encounter a really attractive Moldovan escort might be higher when you would book a call girls service in London, Paris, Brussels, another European capital or Dubai because those are the cities where many Moldovan escorts nowadays live or at least travel for international tours.
