Spending some time in Tampere and don’t fancy going it alone?
With a population of almost a quarter of a million people, Tampere in Southern Finland is the most populous of all the inland Scandinavian cities. This population balloons with a steady stream of tourists and, as a result, Tampere’s sex industry steps up to cater for them.
In this guide, we take a look at the adult entertainment industry in Tampere.
Tampere Escorts Guide
Whilst prostitution is legal in Finland, organised prostitution in the form of brothels are not. This leaves a grey area for escort agencies, many of which get around the rules by emphasising that you are paying strictly for companionship – and anything else that happens is the mere consensual act between two adults.
There are several escort boards and European directories that cater to the Tampere market, however we cannot publicise them due to the laws regarding ‘advertising’ of sexual services.
Sex in Tampere
If you can’t find an escort to whet your appetite or you just want to try the sex scene like the locals do then there are other ways to get your rocks off in Tampere including erotic massage parlours, private sex shows and strip clubs.
There are no legal brothels in Tampere.
Tampere Sex Clubs
There are no swingers clubs in Tampere like those you can find in Helsinki (or in Denmark) but swinging events can be found in the area. The best resource for swinging events can be found through the Swing Lifestyle site.
Tampere Erotic Massage Parlours
Tampere is served by a handful of Thai massage parlours where sexual services are offered at the end of your treatment. Thirty minutes costs around €30 where you can expect a ten-minute rub (not the best massage) before being asked if you want ‘extras’.
These additional services come at a cost so you need to be up-front with this. A handjob will cost you in the region of €20-€40, a blowjob €40-€60 and full service (where available) can be as much as €150.
Not all Thai massage parlours will run this service and some masseuses won’t offer so there are no guarantees.
Tampere Strip Clubs
Strip clubs in Finland are often run in conjunction with sex shops so we have tried to split these into clubs that run evening shows (Strip Clubs) and those that run peep shows during the day alongside their sex stores (see Sex Shops, below).
Erotic Club Show Time
Hämeenkatu 29, 33200 Tampere
Established in 1997, the Show Time has a large welcoming bar with pool tables and comfortable seating. In addition, the restaurant serves a full menu.
The resident DJ keeps the atmosphere hyped and you can get private dances starting at around €50. A cover charge operates at €10 with drinks being priced between €7 and €10.
The club caters for fet lovers and you can get a great personal dominatrix show with their resident mistress in the specially equipped S&M room.
Stage shows are erotic and well put together and run continuously throughout the evening.
The club is open as follows:
- Monday to Thursday: 7pm to 2am
- Friday & Saturday: 7pm to 3am
Erotic Bar Big Tits
Opening in 1998, the Big Tits erotic bar in Tampere has a reputation for being an intimate club where the girls get up close and personal. There is no ‘stage’ so what happens in the club very much happens on your lap anyway.
Private shows are popular and the performers will do quite a lot more than the usual strip or grind in your lap. The shows are big and include the popular foam shower choreography. There is also a dominatrix and golden shower show which you can enjoy privately.
The club is popular for bachelor parties with private performances being booked for stags to fulfil their fantasies.
Prices start at around €40 for a private show with the club being open seven days a week from 12pm to 2am.
Tampere is not well served with street prostitutes. Owing to the current legal situation, street prostitutes face prosecution for soliciting and streetwalking so most avoid it where they can, preferring to advertise online instead. The low density of the city is also another reason why street prostitutes are rare outside of the capital.
However, there are a handful of women who work the traditional way but it is not always easy to pinpoint them as they tend to move frequently to avoid police attention.
It’s said that customers in this city pay €40+ for a quickie and around €100-€200 for an hours service.
We recommend you avoid resorting to the streets.
Tampere Sex Shops
Hämeenpuisto 39, Tampere 33200
Alongside a range of sex toys and adult playthings you can also enjoy a private dance from one of the performers who work here. The special booths are designed for an intimate experience and you can enjoy a live show from €20 for 10 minutes up to €80 for an hour. They also provide domination shows which start at €80 for half an hour.
The store is open as follows:
- Monday to Friday: 10am to 9pm
- Saturday and Sunday: 11am to 8pm
Mansen Sex Shop
Hämeenpuisto 16, 33210 Tampere
Initially opening in 1990, Mansen is the oldest sex shop in Tampere and runs private striptease shows. You can shop inside their boutique for the usual range of toys, DVDs and accessories or slip inside a private room to be entertained by whoever is on rota with an intimate show or lap dance.
Performers willingness to do more for their tips varies depending on the girl themselves but at the very least you should get a damned good lap grind if not a handjob or more.
Mansen is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 10pm and Saturdays until 6pm.
Rongankatu 2 Tampere
Hot Girls provides adult performers for private striptease and big events across Finland. The Tampere base has half a dozen models who are popular for local bookings. They also run their own in-house entertainment with a peep-show style theatre.
Hot Girls also operates a sex shop from their premises which has a good range of products.
The club is open from 10am to 8pm Monday to Friday and Saturday from midday to 6pm.
