Prostitution in Estonia has a bit of a history. It was legal before the Soviet occupation and illegal during the occupation. And now it’s legal again, except for pimping, which is considered a crime. Tallinn is also infamous for having the second highest rate of HIV infections in Europe. It’s 1 in 77 cases, which isn’t all that huge, but it’s a risk nonetheless. Forget about local escort agencies: they are practically non-existent in Tallinn. The incidental ones will not advertise online to stay under the radar of local authorities. Most escorts in Tallinn are independent and advertise on directories such as Litsid (http://litsid.com/en/) and Voodi (http://voodi.ee/), girls openly disclose their telephone numbers and emails. There are of course plenty of tall, blonde local stunners, but finding someone exotic shouldn’t be hard either. Prices vary depending on the escort; it can be anything from €100 to €300 for an hour.
Ironically enough the Estonian capital might no longer be the best place when you fancy a pay date with an Estonian girl with Slavic cheekbones, Scandinavian features and legs of a gazelle. Many local girls, especially the most autonomous and most beautiful ones, usually choose to work abroad. So don’t get up your hopes too much in Tallinn. It’s a small city, social control is large and the risk for a girl of being recognized by a relative, friend or colleague when advertising on local online platforms is relatively high. But above all: the revenues abroad are much better. A good-looking premium escort from Estonia can easily earn €200-€250 per hour in London or Brussels while the rates she could charge in her home country would be significantly lower. A large contingent of Estonian working girls, especially those with Russian roots, is swarming all over Europe. Some are international touring escorts by profession and also visit more remote places such as Dubai, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai. Others work and live more or less permanently in European capitals such as Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris. Especially London is popular with Baltic working girls and has a large influx of Estonian escorts. Often they work from girl friendly or reception-free hotels or rent private apartments where they can receive their customers during incall meetings without any hassle.
Tallinn is way too small and scarcely populated to even think about a red light district. But if there ever were one it would be the Old Town. As many as 60 illegal brothels and dozens of street prostitutes are cramped together in that small area, and some prostitutes are known to chill around the McDonalds. Sex with one of those bordello girls or streetwalkers will cost around €80. For a quick car blowjob €40 would be sufficient. You’ll have to ask locals about these local working girls and venues: taxi drivers or even your hotel staff since the police are adamant about upholding those strict prostitution laws.
Keep in mind that some taxi drivers have recently been busted for scamming tourists. They were taking large tips for driving them to “brothels” that turn out to be striptease clubs. There the tourists were scammed once again; paying huge entry fees and a fortune for drinks. There have also been reports of some of the cab drivers being straight-up pimps.
