WikiSexGuide.com describes itself as "the world's largest sex travel site, enabling travelers to plan and book the perfect trip."

Among its features: user reviews and ratings of "adult places."

The site's page for Denver has some listings that aren't particularly up to date. Note that its section on swingers clubs still includes Sugar House, which closed several years ago and is now POTUS Club, a marijuana-related venue that was raided by Denver police on 4/20 weekend.

But there's plenty of interesting information on a wide variety of sexual topics that may be of interest to tourists. Subjects include prostitution, erotic massage parlors, safety and — yes, it's true — altitude sickness.

Does it seem accurate to you? Decide for yourself by checking out the photo-illustrated excerpts below — and to visit the page for much more information, click here.

Sex Scene and Prostitution

Colorado has become the first state to adopt regulations for recreational marijuana businesses. You can now buy weed legally, but prostitution is still illegal.

Red Light Districts

There is no Red-light district in Denver. You have to fly to Amsterdam or Frankfurt to experience real Red-light districts

Prostitutes and Sex Workers

For several years, vice cops from the Denver and Aurora police departments have been waging a much-publicized war on prostitution along Colfax, concentrating on the East Montclair neighborhood that straddles the cities' borders. They've hauled in prostitutes, conducted numerous undercover stings, closed down motels that catered to the trade, worked closely with neighborhood groups keen on removing the scum from their front steps, and even arranged to publish the names and photos of the prostitutes' customers in community newspapers.

Street Hookers

There’s been a decrease in the prevalence of street-level prostitution because of the Internet advertising. There are both domestic and foreign nationals working on the streets of Denver.

Denver streetwalkers typically charge $20-$40 for oral and $40-$60 for a half-and-half. Higher-quality prostitutes charge $40-$60 for oral and between $60 and $100 for a sex in the car.

Street Prostitution Areas in Denver

• Capitol Hill neighborhood

• Federal Blvd
• West Alameda Ave
• Blake St
• S Abilene St, Aurora

Erotic Massage Parlors

Granted, every city has the massage parlour that’s known for a little tug and pull and possibly a bit more. If you’ve ever been to one, you know the routine but if you don’t, here’s the rundown.

When you enter, some parlors have the ladies lounging around in a common area or living room. Most of the girls are from South Korea, Japan, the Philippines or China. There’s sometimes a white girls or Mexicans in the mix also. The owner introduces the girls that are working. She’ll guide you to the back of the studio and lead you to a room with a bed, where she’ll ask for the house fee. This usually runs $40 to $80. If there’s no common area, each lady will come in and introduce herself.

If you don’t see anyone that interests you, feel free to leave. The owners are usually polite and accommodating, for the most part, and if you’ve paid the house fee they’ll refund it.

If you see someone that interests you, she’ll come in and you talk what happens from there.

Suffice to say that the more generous you are with the tip, the more generous she’ll be with the time you spend together.

Transsexuals / Shemales

You can find Shemale streetwalkers from same areas where regular hookers work. Also internet is full of t-girl prostitutes who are ready to have sex for $150-$250 for one hour.


If you are interested on BDSM, you should check out the private club called The Denver Sanctuary. They host private parties, events and place has a fully equipped dungeon. The Denver Sanctuary is close to downtown off of I-25 for safety related issues they do not disclose their exact address so you need contact Slave Love at Tel:+17204433703

There are also some groups who gather together and many Denver escorts also do role plays and other BDSM fetish things.

Sexual Services for Women

Male escorts are much cheaper than female ones. Average cost for sex with male escort cost $50-$200. Most advertise online and services are usually cheaper for women than for men.

Escort Services & Agencies

Most agencies advertise online and cost is usually $200-$300 for one hour.


Denver has lots of accommodations. Cheap motels for under $50 and better hotels for about $120-$150.

Stay Safe

Denver is quite safe for a city its size. Use your common sense when traveling, particularly in downtown and some of the other inner-city neighborhoods. Denver has a quite visible population of homeless people, but the city has strict laws about accosting for money. In general, panhandlers harm no one. Downtown has a fairly active 24/7 population, especially in LoDo, so it is generally safe.

Still, it may be a good idea not to travel alone at night in some of the neighborhoods near downtown. Although the inner-city neighborhoods are not as bad as those in some other cities, they have more crime than the rest of the city. The rest of Denver is safe.

Altitude sickness

Altitude sickness or Acute mountain sickness is an ailment that potentially anyone can have when they visit areas with higher altitudes than they are used to, due to decreases in barometric pressure (not oxygen content). Denver is called the Mile High City for a reason—at an altitude of a mile above sea level, one can start to experience some of the effects of altitude sickness though generally this condition becomes more pronounced at elevations around 8000 ft (2500 m) and above. Some normal changes may occur when people travel to higher altitudes that are not altitude sickness. These include the following:

• Hyperventilation (breathing faster and/or deeper than normal)
• Shortness of breath after exertion
• Changes in nightly breathing
• Awaking at night
• Increased urination

The above are generally nothing to worry about, but problems with breathing may be helped by a drug called acetazolamide. If you think you may have problems, get advice from your doctor before traveling to Denver....
