Prostitution in Manchester
Prostitution in the UK is legal insomuch that the exchange of money for sexual services is not an offence. However, most activities relating to prostitution are against the law, including:
- Kerb crawling
- Pimping and pander
- Running a brothel
- Advertising for sexual services in public such as in a phone booth
- Soliciting for sex
Manchester has an active prostitution scene though much of this is via massage parlours and the escort business. It is estimated that there are around 2000 to 3000 prostitutes working in and around the city with many coming from Europe as well as the UK.
Prices for full service range from £20-£40 on the streets to £100+ with an escort. There are some more budget options available with outcall prostitutes and you can certainly pay less in one of the city’s many massage parlours.
There has been a rise in the number of ‘pop-up’ brothels in the city which are usually organised by criminal traffickers. These facilities are temporarily based on a short term let and are highly illegal. The Greater Manchester Police force has been cracking down on the existence of such venues and should be avoided at all costs. Knowingly paying for sex with a person who has been coerced into providing a service is illegal and can result in prosecution.

Sex in Manchester
Running a brothel is not legal in the UK and there are no places in Manchester where you can find a traditional brothel except in illegal ‘pop-up’ locations. Often run as part of criminal rings, these venues are highly illegal and should be avoided at all costs.

As in most cities in the UK, street prostitution is not as common as it used to be in the 1980s and 1990s. Most escorts advertise on the internet and even street hookers have taken to placing notices on free classifieds. The immediacy of having a mobile phone and the convenience of an internet ad mean that street prostitution is less appealing. However, there are still pockets of working girls that can be found on the streets.
- To the north, the inner-city area of Cheetham Hill is always a good spot for hookers after dark however it can be a dangerous place to cruise.
- The residential area of Whalley Range used to be known for its bedsits and prostitutes but has changed in recent years. However, there are still a few areas around the Maine Road football ground where you can get lucky.
- Fairfield Street in the city is the most popular pick up location and the half mile stretch from Piccadilly Station to the intersection with the A635 is the place to be. Temperance Street and North Western Street adjoin Fairfield and both have a reputation for being good pick up locations.
- North of Fairfield Street you can find a light industrial area along Betley Street, Heyrod Street and Adair Street. You stand a good chance of picking up around here too.
Just remember that kerb crawling is illegal and, if caught, you face a caution. The best times to pick up are after dark but before 11.00pm. Expect to pay in the region of £20-£40 for full sex with a blow job being £10-£20.
As with many other UK cities, sex shops have been hit hard over the last decade as internet shopping for personal products replaces the high street retail sector.
There are still several bricks and mortar shops in Manchester where you can browse for bedroom basics at your leisure, including:
- Love Boutique, 78 Tib St, Manchester M4 1LR
- Tongue Joy, 132-134 Great Ancoats St, Manchester M4 6DE
