Prostitution Laws in Turin
Paying for sex is legal in Italy although it is not legal to run a brothel or to profit from anothers sex work; that means pimping is also forbidden. As a result, there is plenty of prostitution in Turin though mostly in two distinct areas; escorting and street prostitution..
It is estimated that there are around 6000 sex workers in Turin with around a third of these being non-European. As well as Italian girls, you can find a lot of African and eastern European women although Turin also has a small Asian and South American contingency too. Of course, there are usually other EU sex workers in the city including prostitutes from Spain, Portugal and France.
The sex scene in Turin is second only to that in Milan and there are plenty of prostitutes and escorts working across the city. It is estimated that the trade brings in around €20 million in revenue.
Prices for sex vary depending on where you are picking up and, of course, the quality of the escort/prostitute. However, as a general guide, customers report paying around €30-€50 for sex with a street hooker and upwards of €150 per hour for an escort.
Turin Escorts Guide
The escort scene in Turin is a diverse one and offers a huge variety of different ages, ethnicities and physical types. Though the average rate is around €150 per hour, there are more premium services available as well as some budget options.
Sex in Turin
With a population of around 900,000 people, Turin is a busy and cosmopolitan city offering a range of diversions. Though most visitors will be taken by the cultural and architectural gems, adults in search of something more ‘grown up’ will be pleased by the variety on offer. As well as a couple of strip clubs and an active street scene, there are plenty of private sex clubs. Similar to swingers, or libertine, clubs these venues are usually open to visitors and can provide an evening of hedonistic pleasures whether you are single or as a couple.
It is illegal to operate a brothel in Turin and you won’t be able to find bordellos in the city like those you might find in Germany, The Netherlands or, even Denmark. However, there are a lot of illegal establishments that run organised prostitution. Often found in basement flats and cheap apartments, these rings are often organised by traffickers and should be avoided at all costs. As well as being coerced into sex, the women in these venues can sometimes be involved in drugs and other criminal activities. The police have been cracking down on these groups and, in recent years, several arrests have been made.
Dogging is becoming a very popular pastime for Italians and they certainly have the weather to make it far more of an enjoyable experience than for swingers and voyeurs in Northern Europe. There are several popular spots around the city but these can change so it is worth checking with local online groups like the Adult Hub.
As well as dogging, swinging in Italy is also quite popular and there are a lot of private munches as well as some group events. Though most are really only open for locals and Italians, some members of communities like The Adult Hub, Swing Towns or SDC are open to foreign visitors.
In addition, there are plenty of swingers club in the Turin area. Also known as club privè, these are venues similar to the libertine clubs in France.

Erotic Massage Parlours
There are a lot of places to get an erotic massage around Turin. Mostly run by eastern Europeans and Asians, the cost of a massage is around €50-€60 with a hand job costing you an extra €20-€30.
Strip clubs are popular in Italy but are quite an expensive way to enjoy topless and nude dancers. Some smaller clubs are known to provide ‘takeaways’, with dancers offering escort services but this is not as common in Turin as it is in some of the smaller Italian cities. Some dancers can and do provide ‘extras’ during a private show but this should not be expected; in fact, most clubs will not take kindly to their performers being groped so it’s best to have this lead by the dancer rather than jumping in.

Street Prostitution and Red-Light Districts
There is no specified red-light district of Turin although there is talk among many of the local governments in Italy to formalise areas for the purpose of street prostitution. In Turin, the sex trade is wide-spread, and street hookers can be found in various areas of the city, including:
- Corso Unita d’Italia
- Via Ormea
- Corso Duca degli Abbruzzi
- Via Vinovo
- Viale Torino
- Strada Orbassano
- Via Lando Conti
- Via Pianezza
- Parco della Pellerina
- Strada del Portone
- Via Guido Reni
- Strada della Cebrosa
- Corsa Romania
- Corso Regina Margherita
- Corsio Appio Claudio
However, it is fair to say (as is the case in many European cities) street prostitution is on the decline as more sex workers use the internet to advertise their services as call girls.
Customers generally expect to pay around €30 to €50 for sex on the streets of Turin.
Turin has plenty of sex shops from those that sell novelty items and basic bedroom gear to some more specialist stores that stock SM gear. They are quite widely distributed so there is going to be somewhere local to you, wherever you are staying in the city.
