Prostitution in Lisbon is legal as long as it’s a deal between you and the girl. This means a third party making profits out of it (aka. pimping, brothels) isn’t allowed. In Lisbon escorts are a popular way of hiring some hot company for the evening, all thanks to the development and anonymity of the Internet. The quality of escorts in Lisbon is usually much higher than anything you’d find in unofficial brothels or on the streets. It will not be surprising that many working girls come from former colonies such as Angola, Mozambique and Brazil. Especially the number of Brazilian escorts in Lisbon is really huge.
Independent escort girls who do not have own sites usually place their profiles on local directories and advertising platform to promote their services. One of the more popular local escort directories is Apartado X (https://www.apartadox.com/). On this advertising platform you can find escorts and masseuses working in Lisbon but also in nearby places such as Estoril, Cascais and Oeiras. What I really love about their website are the sexy introduction videos to the girls listed on their site. Also it offers you the option to filter on Portuguese and Brazilian girls if nationality of your bedding partner would matter to you. And if you are into niches like a female bodybuilder you will find your favorite girl probably as well.
One of the biggest and most popular escort agencies in Portugal is Escort Privada (https://escortprivada.com/) that has girls available for incall and outcall service in Lisbon, Porto and the Algarve. The photo galleries of their escorts do not disclose their faces but judging on their figures they are in pretty good shape. Whoever you choose, don’t expect to pay less than €150 for an hour with a representable escort.
Even though brothels are illegal, they often operate under a guise of escort agency or directory. The owners swearing on their mommas’ graves that they have no part in the girls’ earnings, or that they only rent out rooms but we all know better than that. NewLux (http://newlux.pt/) at Conde Sabugosa 21 makes you wonder what happened to the FirstLux; probably it has been raided by the police and closed down. Service in one of those shady establishments will cost you around €100, if you’re willing to risk it.
There used to be a red light district in Lisbon back in the day, it was called the Pink Street, you can still find some streetwalkers there, but most hang around Praça da Figueira nowadays. Another hotspot in that respect is Avenida da Liberdade en Parque. The general consensus about working girls in Lisbon is that they’re usually 50+ year old hippopotamuses, dirty and ugly while still charging €50 for service, so better avoid them at all cost.
