Heading to Malmö and wondering what to do in the evening?
Well, don’t get your hopes up. There is a limited amount of adult entertainment in this historic harbour city. With a relatively small population of just 300,000 people, Malmö has its fair share of bars, nightclubs and live music venues but a distinct lack of strip clubs and places to get a bit of titivation. With such limited opportunities, what’s a guy to do?
Well, we’ve dug around and found some options for the single traveller to find some fun in and around Malmö.
Malmo: A Vanilla City?
Located in the southwestern border of Sweden, just 41km drive across the Öresund bridge to Copenhagen, Malmö is a quiet city when it comes to adult entertainment. There are no strip clubs, swingers clubs or brothels.
There is a distinct lack of massage parlours that offer adult body rubs even with almost 50 Thai Massage venues.
There isn’t any particular reason why Malmö fails to cater for the sex market and we can only imagine that there is just a supply and demand issue.
Okay, it’s a quiet kind of town but as Sweden’s third largest city we just kind of expected more. However, with Copenhagen being so close and offering a hub for adult services, perhaps locals simply skip over the border to get their kicks. Whatever the reason, there are a couple of options in Malmö for anyone looking for sex or titivation.
Malmo Escorts Guide
There are a couple of escort directories and classified sites serving the Malmo market.
Unfortunately we cannot link to them due to advertising restrictions, however a simple search online uncovers several options for hiring an escort.
Malmo Sex Shops
Södra Förstadsgatan 81, 214 20 Malmö
Tel: +46 40 97 64 10
Taboo is a very popular sex shop in Malmo (locals must be spending their time enjoying themselves at home rather than in clubs!). A distinctly average shop, Taboo sells the usual range of sex toys, lingerie and bedroom aids. Their stock is well priced and they have a good selection from the main manufacturers and, although they don’t specialise in anything over and above the essentials, you can find some bondage gear and the odd surprising pleasure aid. Most of the crowd buying in here are gay or bi-curious so expect a lot of male orientated products.
Taboo is open from 10.00am to 8.00pm Monday to Friday and 11.00am to 6.00pm at the weekend.
Oliver & Eva
Friisgatan 10, 211 46 Malmö
Tel: +46 40 30 40 60
Though a small and independent shop, Oliver & Eva has a great selection of some unusual products. Their inviting and friendly store is like a sweet shop and is an assault on the senses with vibrant colours and unusual shapes. Well worth a visit just for the experience, prices are good and you might find something here that you haven’t seen before (well, not in that particular shape and colour anyway).
Malmo Street Prostitutes
Though Malmo has no red light district, there are a handful of eastern European street hookers in the Sorgenfri area of town.
However, you should bear in mind that prostitution in Sweden is highly illegal and can land you in a lot of trouble just for window shopping. Avoid.
Copenhagen: Bridging the Gap in the Market
When it comes to finding a strip club or brothel close to Malmö then your best bet is to head over the bridge and hit Copenhagen.
Just a 45-minute drive away (35 minutes by train) and you can find yourself enjoying Denmark’s liberal prostitution laws. With over 400 bordellos in the country and many of these in and around Copenhagen you’ll be hard pushed not to find yourself a suitable venue.
And, if you simply want to experience an evening of adult entertainment then you can find strip clubs, lap dancing bars and gentleman’s clubs galore.
With an established red light district and street hookers working in the city, the contrast with Malmö is extreme. You can even get yourself an erotic massage at a huge selection of adult body rub parlours where you aren’t left guessing if you can get a happy ending; it’s almost the law to give you one.
