Want to know more about sex in Birmingham?
Centrally located in the heart of England, the city, known as Brum, is a culturally diverse place offering a great mix of entertainment. Split into many outlying districts and the main city, there are hundreds of bars, clubs and restaurants as well as strip clubs, erotic massage parlours and swinging clubs.
In this guide to the Birmingham Sex Scene, we take a look at some of the best adult entertainment venues in Birmingham, as well as what adult services you can (and cannot) find legally.
Is Prostitution Legal in Birmingham?
As the UK’s second largest city by population and home to 1.1 million people, Birmingham has a reasonably busy sex industry (just like most of the UK!).
As well as escorts and street prostitutes, sex services are available at erotic massage parlours.
It is estimated that there are around 3000 to 5000 prostitutes working in the Birmingham area with the average charge for full sex being £20 to £30, full sex from a street prostitute and £80 to £120 from an escort.
Prostitution in the UK is legal in the sense that it is not against the law to pay for sex nor to see sex; however, most activities surrounding the sex trade are against the law, including:
- Running or managing a brothel.
- Kerb crawling
- Advertising for sex in a public space
It is also illegal for johns to pay for sex with anyone under the age of 18 or someone they know to have been coerced into sex.
In recent years, the West Midlands Police Authority has been clamping down on street prostitution by targeting kerb crawlers. Repeat offenders who receive more than three cautions are taken to court where they face receiving an Engagement Support Order.
The Birmingham Escorts Scene
Most prostitutes in Birmingham offer sex through an escort service.
Some work as independent call girls whilst others work for agencies.
The benefits of working as an escort over street prostitution are obvious; clients can be vetted and checked using mobile contact details before arranging a meeting, no wasted time on the streets plus it is safer for the girls and appointments can be fitted around other social and professional activities.
The cost of advertising and registering with an online directory or agency are relatively low and it is the preferred choice for most working girls.
Birmingham has a huge number of ways to book an escort. When booking an escort that hasn’t been verified, you are advised to make your own arrangements to authenticate her profile.
Bait and switch scams aren’t common but they do happen so it is as well to ask for up-to-date photographs sent to your mobile. Ask for the escort to hold a piece of paper with your chosen word written on it. This should ensure you are communicating with the person from the profile you have selected online.
Due to UK advertising regulations, we cannot list active Birmingham escort agencies (or independent escorts) on this page.
Sex in Birmingham: What Adult Services Are Popular?
Brothels aren’t legal in the UK and you can’t find any that advertise services of this nature. It is said that you can get full sex in some of the erotic massage parlours around the city.
However, this too is against the law.

Strip Clubs in Birmingham
Birmingham has a wide selection of strip clubs, some offering more of a traditional approach to gentleman’s clubs and others being more like bars.
Drinks prices are higher than in other city bars and the costs of lapdances can add up even though admission fees can be low. It’s always recommended to keep your head in these kind of venues as too much to drink can hit your wallet hard.
Girls who work in strip clubs are skilled at tempting men to part with their cash…you have been warned.

A Burlesque nightclub in the heart of Chinatown, the Medusa Lodge is a new location for this long standing Birmingham strip club.

Are There Street Prostitutes in Birmingham?
Yes, but not as many as there used to be.
Street prostitution in the UK is illegal and the prevalence of street hookers has been on the decline in Birmingham for the last few decades.
Most prostitutes now use the internet to advertise their services and operate from their own premises or provide outcall visits. Women working on the streets generally charge around £20-£30 for full sex with reports of oral being procured for under £10.
There is no red-light district in Birmingham but there are a couple of areas which have become notorious for prostitution.
Soliciting is illegal, and we don’t want to encourage it, so our best advice is simple: avoid them.
Local Sex Shops
Birmingham doesn’t have as many sex shops as London with many of the smaller retail units having closed down over the last decade due to the internet.
You can still find several shops in the city as well as in some surrounding areas such as Tamworth or Wolverhampton.
Here, you will find a good range of bedroom basics including toys, health essentials, clothing and a smattering of the best British porn. None of these are niche shops but should give you a way to look and feel products before you buy them.
Of course, if you are after something specific, you can find products online but you may have to wait for delivery. Here is a guide on the UK’s best online sex shops.
