Want to know more about the sex scene in Odessa?
Situated in the south of Ukraine on the Black Sea, the port city of Odessa was once the most important port of the Soviet Union. Now a popular tourist destination, the city is known as the ‘pearl of the black sea’ and has historical roots going back as far as the Ancient Greeks. Odessa is more Mediterranean in feel than much of the rest of the country and offers sandy beaches, a diverse nightlife and a humid continental summer climate. Home to over a million people, it is the third most populous city in Ukraine and remains a busy seaport.
In this guide, we take a look at prostitution in Odessa including escorts, street and bar prostitution as well as look at the kinds of service you can get in strip clubs and erotic massage parlours.

Prostitution in Odessa
Prostitution is illegal in Ukraine and you won’t find red light districts with easy access brothels like you can in the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
However, prostitution is widespread in Ukraine and the penalty for breaking the law is often very slight with fines of less than €10. Deemed more of an administrative offence, like illegal parking, prostitutes would rather run the risk of being caught than not carrying on with their business. Certainly, most women can earn enough with just one client to make it worth their while being caught.
Street prostitution is becoming less common, particularly outside of the summer peak tourist season though you can still find freelance hookers working bars and clubs during the winter. Online escort services are far more popular than traditional street walking and is a more convenient and comfortable way for both prostitutes and mongers to arrange a service. Some can even offer in-call services at their apartment.
Other ways to find sex in Odessa include through the erotic massage parlours and strip clubs. Though the official line is that both of these types of venue do not sell sexual services, you can often find the women who work here more than willing to turn a few tricks for the right cash. Certainly, most (if not all) of the erotic massage parlours in the city will provide you with a guaranteed manual service.
The cost of hiring a prostitute in Odessa varies a lot depending on who you hire and where you pick them up. The average cost of an escort is around €50 though there are many who provide more premium services that will cost you between €100 and €200 per hour.
Street hookers charge under €50 with some providing service for around €30. See ‘Erotic Massage Parlours’, below for details of costs in these venues.
Odessa Escorts Guide
There are no official figures but the directories suggest that Odessa has a few thousand escorts available for out call services. Some provide in-call and massage sessions and we’ve tried to include some suggestions here for a broad range of services, budgets and escort types.
Most of the escorts in Odessa are Ukrainian or from other Eastern European counties including Russia, Moldova, Slovakia, Belarus and Poland. You can also find some Western European escorts working for the agencies including some from Turkey.
General Escorts Odessa
These escort directories and agencies provide a good range of services and you should expect to pay anything from €50 to €150 per hour for services. Whilst many offer specialist services, a general visit will include oral and covered intercourse only. You will normally have to pay extra for anything like A-levels, roleplay, fetish or BDSM.
VIP Escorts Odessa
If you have money to burn and really want to treat yourself then we’ve selected some more premium services. Though cheaper by comparison to the rest of Europe, most of the girls on these sites charge around €200per hour; some have a minimum booking duration so check the website for details. Premium prostitutes in Odessa often speak excellent English and have a sophisticated background which makes them ideal for more than just fun in the bedroom. If you have the money and the time, discovering the city with an elite call girl can be very satisfying.
Sex in Odessa
Odessa has a good reputation for its nightlife and there are plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants where you can have a great night out. Some of these establishments attract hookers who are cruising for clients but there are just as many young singles who are looking for a casual encounter so it’s always worth trying your luck.
If you’re not on your A game and need to hit somewhere that you can get guaranteed satisfaction then we’ve picked some of the best ways to get sex in Odessa.
Brothels are illegal in Ukraine and you won’t find any bordello style venues in Odessa. Some street prostitutes operate from flats that are close to the city where more than one woman will entertain clients and, though these are brothels of a sort, they are not walk up venues.
If you are looking for relief in Kiev then the best venues to try are the erotic massage parlours and sometimes strip clubs (see below).
Nightclubs & Bars
Street prostitution isn’t that common in Ukraine and in the major cities, like Odessa, you can find some freelance prostitutes working the bars and nightclubs. It’s not a guaranteed way to pick up and, unlike in Kiev where there are hot spots, you may not find that many working women in the clubs.
It goes without saying that picking up in these circumstances should be discreet plus you should always make sure that you are talking to a working girl before making any propositions; some women in Odessa may look like they are professionals, but it can be hard to tell on a night out.
Having said that, the following clubs are notorious pick up spots for young singles looking for casual encounters, so you may be able to get laid for free:
- Steam Bar, 20 Grecheskaya Street, Odessa
- Morgan Club, 30 Zhukovs’koho Street, Odessa
- The Fitz, Katerynyns’ka St, 6, Odessa
- Mershal, Uspenska Street, 103, Odessa
- Us Pei, Uspenska Street, 101, Odessa
Swinging is not as popular in Ukraine as it is in the west of Europe and there are very few clubs around. Most are quite closed and accept new members by invitation only, certainly they do not welcome members who do not speak Ukrainian.
If you are interested in swinging whilst in Ukraine then your best chance of meeting open-minded couples or singles to join with then you would be advised to check out (or post) listings on Adult Hub, Alt.com, Adult Friend Finder or Fetlife.
Erotic Massage Parlours
Erotic massage is very popular in Ukraine and, in the absence of brothels, is the next best thing to sex on the high street. Whilst most parlours operate a strict policy of no-sex, there are some places where you can get more than just manual relief but this depends on the masseuse.

There are also some smaller massage studios that operate almost like one-woman brothels. Of course, not all of these salons offer full service but you can find that they will be more likely to offer it than the larger parlours.
We’ve included telephone numbers as most do not accept walk-ins and opening hours vary so it’s best to call in advance. Some are larger parlours that have a number of women available.

Strip clubs are popular in Ukraine and you can find plenty around the big cities with seven big venues to choose from in Odessa. Most have a ‘crazy menu’ from which dancer’s services can be selected which should detail the prices. If they do not have a written menu then it is recommended that you get a price in advance to avoid any unexpected bills at the end of your evening.
Bunina St, 24, Odessa
The Axis strip club is centrally located in the historical area of the city and is close to the Philharmonic Theater.

The club has a crazy menu which consists of some good performances at great prices:
- Give a girl the day off – 8000 UAH/€250

Katerynyns’ka St, 2, Odessa
The Rasputin club is located right in the heart of Odessa close to Ekaterininskaya Square. It’s a modern venue with a lot of soul and has a nice vibe when it gets busy.
They are a pretty standard club for Ukraine and do the basics well; private dances, all night strip tease and some specials like the water show, lesbian performance and topless hostessing.
Their point of difference can be found in the detail of their ‘crazy menu’, which includes standard private sessions with your choice of dancer as well as:
- “Butter Cake” – Cover girl’s body cream and lick them.
- “In the middle fetishist” – Buy any item of clothing (dancer, waiter, bartender, Administrator)
- “Take me!” – Photo with a dancer or another club employee
The problem with Rasputin is that prices can be a bit hit and miss so it’s important to get these clear before committing to an order. There are reports that some guests have received an unexpected bill at the end of an evening so don’t say you haven’t been warned.
Rasputin is open as follows:
- Sunday to Thursday: 8.00pm to 5.00am
- Friday and Saturday: 8.00pm to 6.00am
Best of the Rest
Other strip clubs are available and you can find some great services on their individual ‘crazy menus’ just don’t forget to be clear on the price before you commit:
- X Club, street 25th Chapaevsky Division, 2, Odessa
- Oscar, Nizhyns’ka St, 68, Odessa
- Office, Hrets’ka St, 25, Odessa
- Flirt Deluxe Strip Bar, Katerynyns’ka St, 32, Odessa
- Flirt Gentleman’s Club, Marshala Hovorova St, 10/2, Odessa
Street Prostitutes and Red-Light Districts
Though there are no red light districts in Odessa and prostitution is illegal, you can still find hookers on the city’s streets. The season is mainly restricted to the summer as in winter the temperatures can dip to well below freezing and there is rarely any action on Odessa’s streets at this time of year.
The most popular place to find hookers is down by the port where you can find women working from the bars as well as on the main thoroughfares. If you take a walk from the National Opera down Chaikovs’koho Ln towards the sea and hit up the bars, you should be approached after a while.
Other areas that attract street prostitutes include:
- Derybasivska Street close to the National Museum of Eastern and Western Art.
- Preobrazhens’ka street close to the Zirka hotel
- Uspenska Street near to Starobazarnyi Garden Square
The Zirka Hotel has a reputation as somewhere that you can take hookers back to and the surrounding area is a popular spot for bars and clubs where hookers are known to work.
You can also find women around the open-air nightclub, Ibiza Beach Club in Arcadia. The whole area is known for its nightlife and attracts a lot of tourists making it popular for picking up.
Picking up in Odessa can cost you as little as €30-€50 but it really depends on the kind of night the girls are having and where and when you approach them. Some girls will charge less than €20 for a quickie.
There are only a few sex shops in Odessa, most selling a fairly ‘vanilla’ range of sex toys and bedroom aids. However, a lot of pharmacies sell the essentials such as condoms, lube and even performance aids like Viagra.
For sex toys, novelty items and lingerie, you might be able to find what you are looking for at one of these stores. Failing that, the online sex shops in Ukraine deliver quite quickly so you could always order at your hotel.
Pushkins’ka St, 58, Odessa
Close to the Odessa catacombs, this central city sex shop is known as ‘Strawberry’.
They are a small branch of a national chain but manage to stock a reasonably good range of products in their store. From anal beads to dildos, wands and vibrators, the basics are all covered with a couple of surprises as well.
They mostly sell products online so it is worth having a look on their website before you go. If they don’t stock something then they can usually get it in within a day or so if you are staying in Odessa for a while.
The store is open daily from 10.00am to 8.00pm.
Hrets’ka Square, 3/4, Odessa
Conveniently located in the heart of the city, Kama Sutra is a sex store with a good range of essentials from pumps and dildos, vibrators and strapons to inflatable dolls, novelty goods and erotic lingerie.
They’ve got a decent selection in store, but they have a better choice online. If you can’t find what you are looking for then they can order goods in to be collected and the sales staff have a good reputation for being helpful.
Kama Sutra is open daily from 10.00am to 9.00pm.
No Taboo is a chain brand of sex stores in Ukraine and they have plenty of stores in the capital, Kiev. There are three No Taboo stores in Odessa:
- Deribasovskaya 12, Odessa
- Pushkinskaya 42, Odessa
- Grecheskaya Street 36, Odessa
All three stores are open daily from 10.00am to 10.00pm and between them stock a good selection of the usual sex toys, kinky love aids, DVDs, magazines and bedroom essentials. You won’t be blown away by the choice but the prices are reasonable and they are conveniently located.
10 Kosmonavtom Komarova Street, Odessa
Situated in the west of the city, close to the National Aviation University, Intim Toys stock a good range of well known brands including Lelo, We-Vibe, Fun Factory and Fleshlight. The choice is pretty good and they have a good reputation for service and prices.
They sell sex dolls, erotic lingerie, masturbators, sex machines and pumps. You can even find pheromone perfumes, performance enhancing supplements and exciting lubricants.
They are open daily from 9.00am to 9.00pm.
