Denmark’s third largest city of Odense has a population of 175,000 people and is an important centre for tourism with visitor numbers swelling the area by almost double, particularly in the Summer.
Though much of the sex trade in Denmark is centred around the capital, Copenhagen, Odense does have some interesting ways to keep adults occupied during the evenings.
Let’s take a look at the local adult entertainment scene…
Prostitution in Odense
The law in Denmark for prostitutes is similar to lots of European nations and has been decriminalised since 1999. All forms of profiteering surrounding sex work are illegal including running a brothel, pimping and other forms of procuring. However, brothels do exist in Denmark but they are run as independent massage or escort houses offering rooms by the hour to consenting couples.
The Danish Government considered implementing a sex purchase ban in 2012 but concluded that such legislation would not decrease the amount of prostitution in Denmark but would likely have a detrimental effect on prostitutes themselves.
As a result of the legal framework surrounding prostitution it is possible to secure the services of sex workers in Denmark. However, each city does vary and Odense does not have high levels of street workers.
Odense Escorts Guide
Denmark is split into three main regions, the western mainland that borders Germany, the eastern island of Zealand that has a road bridge to Sweden and the remaining 100 islands. The second largest of these is Funen; located directly between the mainland and Zealand whose capital is Odense.
Escorts on Funen serve most of the towns on this island as well as covering the eastern edge of the mainland. Being only 2 hours’ drive from Copenhagen, you can also find that the city’s more flexible escorts are prepared to travel for the right fee.
There are a few agencies and directory boards where escort ads can be browsed for the Odense area, however we cannot publish links to them due to the strict advertising rules surrounding the industry.

Odense Sex Shops & Cinemas
Vesterbro 19, 5000 Odense C
Sexkino is Denmark’s oldest sex shop and incorporates a well-stocked physical store at the back of which you can find a large sex cinema.
The range of toys is comprehensive and you can find pretty much everything you might want by way of bedroom accessories. However, it is the cinema which provides Sexkino with its more regular guests. Running adult movies, the rendezvous here can be pretty steamy and voyeurs are likely to be very pleased with the ad-libbed side entertainment.
Sexkino is open Monday to Saturday from 10am, closing at 6pm (9pm on Friday and Saturday).
