A Guide to Stockholm Escorts, Call Girls and Hookers
In Stockholm for business or pleasure and looking for some female company?
Sweden has strict laws on prostitution but that doesn’t stop you from hiring an escort in Stockholm…for ‘company’. The country’s capital city is serviced by a few hundred escorts who advertise their services online or via agencies (based outside of Sweden).
These ladies cover a range of budgets and tastes. Though not all hailing from Scandinavia’s largest city, you can enjoy a taste of Sweden from the comfort of your hotel room or via an in-call service.
As of late 2018, we counted over 30 different escort websites, directories and boards with ads posted by courtesans (or their respective agencies). Unfortunately we cannot link to them, but it goes without saying… the websites are not hard to find.
Brothels in Stockholm
Wondering where all the Stockholm brothels are?
Maybe you don’t fancy running the risk of an in-call visit from an escort at your home, hotel or place of work. In other European countries, you’d simply go and visit a brothel but in Sweden the laws mean that the traditional bordello is a thing of the past.
The Laws on Brothels in Sweden
In 1999, Sweden changed its prostitution laws effectively legalising the act of selling sex but criminalising buying it.
The laws were designed to protect sex workers from conviction but also to clamp down on johns and pimps with the threat of up to six years in prison. This has made the traditional brothel a thing of the past unless reforms are introduced…which are unlikely.
On the surface, these laws have been successful in what the state attempted to do in reducing the number of prostitutes working in Sweden. Official figures suggest that the number of working women has reduced from around 3,000 twenty years ago to just 600. Unofficially there is evidence to suggest that there are a lot more than that figure.
Of this total, it is estimated that between 100-150 women are working the Stockholm area. Many of these women work as independent escorts as opposed to taking to the streets. In fact, you are unlikely to find more than a dozen women who are prepared to take to the capital’s streets on a regular basis.
There are plenty of Thai Massage parlours in Stockholm as well as spas that offer an authentic Swedish massage.
Though neither offer full service, at least one in five of the Asian massage parlours in the city will provide you with a happy ending (manual only). This is more likely in the suburbs than it is in Central Stockholm. Finding a parlour is easy and is just a matter of looking out for the Thai flag alongside the words ‘massage’ or ‘massera’.
Even if you don’t get lucky in the massage parlour you choose, Thai massage is usually a very sensual and erotic experience and is very cheap in Stockholm (average price is 400 SEK or €42 for an hour).
Because of the legalities associated with offering a rub and tug service we can’t provide the details of those parlours that have been known to offer this kind of treatment; particularly because this can depend on the masseuse at the time who may also work for several parlours.
Temporary InCall Locations
There has been a sharp rise in the number of temporary brothels that have been set-up using locations leased through the AirBnB site.
Groups of escorts rent a property with a couple of bedrooms for a week or more and use the house/apartment as a place of work.
Under the current laws owners would be liable for prosecution under anti-pimping legislation.
However, it isn’t just AirBnB that has proved to be a useful source of temporary premises and it is possible to contact escorts who advertise online to arrange a visit to an incall location offering the choice of more than just one woman.
Erotic Massage in Stockholm
Looking for an adult body rub in Stockholm or a sensuous massage with a happy ending?
The strict laws surrounding paid sex services in Sweden can make finding a rub and tug difficult in the capital city…but not impossible if you know where to look. From massage parlours to escorts and strip clubs in the city there are options and services available.
Asian Massage Parlours (AMPs)
Because of the strict laws in Sweden surrounding the sale of sexual services there is no way of advertising either the availability or price of a rub and tug service.
As a result, the practice is an underground one with no guarantees and with patchy pricing.
The city has a lot of massage parlours, most being Asian in origin, with Thai being the most popular. Also known as AMPs (Asian Massage Parlours), it is estimated that around one in five establishments perform happy endings for their customers.
This is a hit and miss kind of affair and very much depends on the masseuse that you get and what kind of vibes you are giving off. It is likely that if you spring a hard on she might make some suggestion about massaging the stiff areas of your body. Discretion and innuendo here are key so be alert to any possibilities.
Finding a Thai massage parlous is straight forward as you need only look for the Thai flag alongside the words ‘massage’ or ‘massera’. A good tip is to use the out of town parlours as these are more likely to make an offer of extra services than those in the centre of Stockholm.
Massage from a Thai parlour isn’t expensive (for Sweden) and you are looking at around 400 SEK (€42) per hour though you can double this price of you get lucky with finding a willing masseuse.
Even if you don’t manage to get a happy ending to your massage you can be rest assured that the experience will still be a very arousing one.
Stockholm Strip Clubs
The capital city has several strip club options and all are situated within a stones throw of one another meaning, if you have deep pockets, you could hit them all in one session. From the Heartbeat which opens during the day to those that run until 7am, you could feasibly spend twenty four hours sampling a smorgasbord of Swedish strippers in Stockholm.
Types of Strip Clubs in Stockholm
There are two types of strip club in Stockholm; those that offer public and private shows including lap dances and those that include additional entertainment. Whilst the latter does not include anything like full service (which is illegal in Sweden), it can include erotic massage.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that this includes any kind of happy ending; it is strictly for entertainment and asking for anything else is not tolerated by the clubs.

Adult Stores in Stockholm
Want to know where all the sex shops (sexbutik) are in Stockholm?
Though the sex industry is limited in Sweden due to strict laws on prostitution, like their Nordic neighbours, the Swedes seem to have a big appetite for their sex toys.
