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 adult entertainment options in Odessa including 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 pay for any resulting fines.
Street prostitution is becoming less common, particularly outside of the summer peak tourist season though customers 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, various ‘field reports’ suggest otherwise.
The cost of hiring a prostitute in Odessa varies a lot. The average cost of an escort is around €50 though there are many who provide more premium services that will cost between €100 and €200 per hour.
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.
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.
Various 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.
Due to legal restrictions surrounding the industry, we cannot publish links to any of the popular Odessa agencies or escort directories.
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.
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.
Our advice? Steer clear.
Nightclubs & Bars
The following clubs are popular pick up spots for young singles looking for casual encounters, so you may be able to get laid if you bring your A game:
- Steam Bar, 20 Grecheskaya Street, Odessa

- The Fitz, Katerynyns’ka St, 6, Odessa
- Mershal, Uspenska Street, 103, 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.
Examples of the type of services you’ll see advertised include:
- Classic erotic massage with happy ending
- BDSM session with spanking, strapon, bondage and insults
- Peep Shows
- Strapon session
- Nude body slide
- Prostate massage
We can’t list specific venues, but they are easy to find online.
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.

The Axis strip club is centrally located in the historical area of the city and is close to the Philharmonic Theater.

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

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. This runs obvious risks and we don’t recommend you try it.
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.
