Where to Find Prostitutes in Lima, Peru

The thing about Lima is that there are always a couple prostitutes hanging around. I took this picture as I was walking home the other day. This is right in the middle of Miraflores, one of the nicer districts, and there, clustered appropriately around the cash machine is a congregation of fairly nasty hookers. I didn't want to get any closer to take a decent picture because...well...i'd probably have to pay for it and there's no fucking way that I was going to pay these girls any money for anything.


This picture is right at the corner of Pizza Street (officially known as Calle San Ramon) and Diagonal (right next to Parque Kennedy)...click here for a map. In addition to Prostitutes, on Pizza Street you will find Bricheras and Peperas (girls who drug guys and then rob them), and dipshit fraternity guys who are in Peru on vacation and making asses of themselves. There are also usually a bunch of "respectable" businesmen who spend their whole lives bitching about people who live on the darker side, but take every chance they get to vacation there and fuck those people, only to go home to their traditional picket fence house and happy family and transfer some South American strain of Herpes to their doting wife (who's probably transfered her share of nastiness to him as well...it's a vicious cycle).

When they're not seemingly endlessly strolling back and forth along Pizza street, the prosti's ("Prosty the prostitute...la la la lalalalaaaaaaaa!") come from the Tequila. The Tequila or Tequila Rock is a bar just across from Parque Kennedy that is sort of the hive from which the prostitutes go buzzing out of.

What I find interesting is that intelligent girls with real jobs absolutely frickin' HATE these prostitutes. There's no sympathy like, "poor girl, reduced to that hard life." Nope, it's all 100%, "what a piece of shit lazy hunk of garbage...she's selling her body because she doesn't want to WORK!"

I'm a little bit more accepting of it I suppose, and by that I mean I don't call them garbage...but then again since I consider any woman who doesn't pay for her meals or her drinks (on a date or otherwise) a prostitute...I find myself essentially surrounded by them at all times. You got to admit that it's a pretty fine line...but then again, hell, I suppose everybody's got a price, so we shouldn't judge.

  4. Haha....I'm guessing "Where to Find Prostitutes in Lima, Peru" was another search term that brought someone to your site? Calle de las Pizzas was the very first place I ever went to in Peru, after my flight landed at midnight or so back in March 2004. My buddy was getting married the next day and we met them there after the bachelor party. Little did I know I'd be the one getting married there less than two years later...

  6. Anonymous, why don't you try setting yourself on fire some time?

    I'm pathetic? No, I think not. Prostitution is actually a pretty fascinating topic worldwide, and the prostitution PROBLEM of Lima is truly relevant (because it is a problem). If you aren't mature enough to deal with an adult topic, you shouldn't be reading my page, try sitting home instead and watching "backyardigans."

  7. Interesting points Cecilia. On the first one, yes, it is an overstatement to say any woman who doesn't pay for her half of things is a prostitute. That's one of those attention getting statements that's just meant to cause controversy. That being said, a person should pay for their half of things, and any society that lives under the assumption that either women or men don't have to pay their share is essentially making slaves out of those people (you are going to pay somehow, it's better if it's upfront and in a manner of your choosing).

    Certainly the problem of children being sold into slavery/prostitution is abhorent and impossible to escape from. What I take issue with is when the media uses this illegal activity as a launch pad for hate mongering against men. This isn't a male/female problem but a criminal problem (and such prostitution rings are just as likely to be run by women as men...contrary to popular belief). To make this into a gender issue and not a human rights issue greatly reduces the capacity for people to find an adequate solution (having a preconception of the results you're going to get contaminates your investigation).

    However, the "children being sold to slavery" prostition is NOT what you find on pizza st. Pizza sts more the buy me a beer variety, and since I'm ALWAYS suspicious of women who don't buy they're own damn drinks, I've always been able to avoid prostitutes.

    It's a self-preservation thing essentially.

    Good comments though.

  8. I don't know. I think in many respects prostitution is a very honest financial transaction. When a woman makes no excuses and tell yu up front, I am a prostitute and this is what it will cost you, it is often more economical and honest than dating. It's the Brichetas and the ladronas I despise. They trick you into believing they are just honest sweet girls who are falling in love with you, but in reality they are cunning thieves trying to take you for whatever they can. that is pathetic.

  9. you know what poster, you have a good view, they are no less than an american girl who tries to get money out of u and doesnt have sex, she just isnt as desperate and poor so she doesnt give up her body for it...anyway, to the guy who lost 60 grand to a brichera, i dont feel sorry for you, and i dont even view her as a dispicable person, she was raised in an environment where its accepted and necessary, and you are a sucker, and i would be tempted to do the same if a sucker like you was willing to give me 60k

  10. I do not know what is this guy tolking about, prostitutes in Lima-Peru, it is very difficult to find nice prostitutes in Lima,othewise, you have contact with somebody whose knows where are nice prostitutes. Where you can find easily and beautiful and wondeful prostitutes and not prostitutes is en the Dominican Republic,where the prostitution is legal.I truly recommend to go there, I will guarantee you to enjoy and you will be happy the rest of your life.

  11. Brazil and Dominican Republic is where you really enjoy your pleasure to meet wonderful women, oh my god thounsand of women are waitting for you, beleive me nothing to do with Lima-Peru, there you won't find anything like sexual pleasure.

  12. So many good points raised. I love Peru, the Country, the culture and the people. There are so many beautiful and wonderful people I've met in my travels there. As for the topic, prostitution is an interesting study. It has and will always exist. It's termed as the oldest profession. It is legal in many countries and in my opinion should be legal in all countries so that the licensing, rules and regulations can keep it as safe and clean as possible. Face it, the transactions are always going to exist. I actually respect the concept. It's a consensual act between 2 people both looking for their own mutual benefit. I do, however, despise and loathe human trafficking and child involvement, which both do exist, unfortunately. The problem is the John's don't know who are trafficked and who are legit, if they care. Legalize it, keep it regulated, and no worries (or reduce them). By the way, someone mentioned prostitution is illegal in the United States. That is not true. It is legal in many parts of the State of Nevada. There are well run, licensed brothels in NV.

  13. prostitution is one of the oldest professions, and like you said you pay for it either way.

  14. I'm from Amsterdam, Holland, the city of Sex and Drugs, but I was shocked that there are so many prostitutes in Lima. I took a hotel in the centre of Lima, in jirón Chota and when I went out of my room and wanted to go into the streets of Lima, the first person I met when I went out of the hotel was a prostitute.
    My last week in Lima they even try to get in contact with me in daytime near the palace of justice in Lima.
    It was quiet easy to get some weed, but what shocked me was that weed was making these peruvian youngster into drugs addicted little robbers. A joint of weed is for a Dutch young person as normal as a glass of red wine for a Frenchman. Also Amsterdam has the reputation of prostitution and drugs, the amount is much bigger in Lima. In Amsterdam prostitution is legal and one does not see them in public in the streets, and soft drugs like weed is sold legally so that the state can benifit with taxes.

    In Peru women quite know well that their husbands go to the brothels, they know, but they accept because a man is a bad husband and father if he doesn't work hard every day (sometimes 12 hours a day) and give money to his wife, if he is good husband, women will close their eyes if their man and his patas go to the hookers.

  23. Ben, When you day "Prostitution is a problem," just what is the problem?

    ReplyDelete
  24. The problem is when you're innocently sitting in a bar, and you start talking to girl and then 45 minutes later the bitch tells you she's "working." That's a total waste of your time if you're looking for something real. 45 minutes of my time is worth more than most prostitutes can afford to pay.

  25. The best girls can be found in "nightclubs" in Lima. They are not night clubs as a gringo would understand - to go and dance and drink..they are straight up high-class brothels..actually they resemble a strip club which has "privados" attached in the back..where you can take the girl..and..well...use your imagination...or take her to your hotel...They are however expensive even for gringo standards...$150 minimum if you're a gringo and they won't budge (that is for the girl, add cost of entrance, "salida" for the girl or privado and $12 beers)..but god..are some of those women there gorgeous...I guess you get what you pay for...I'd recommend Las Suites de Barranco, Emmanuelle or 69, with Las Suites the best. They are more often than not frequented by foreigners...I believe they are actually there for foreigners exclusively considering the prices. A native would have hard times paying their week's/two-week's salary for an hour of fun. Just my two cents.

  26. I travel to Lima 3-4 times a year. Tequila Rock near Pargue Kennedy is indeed the place to go to meet a wide range of pros . Some are full time prostitutes and some are shop girls, students, teachers, stylist etc ... They are simply there to pick up some extra money. It is not hard to distinguish between the two.
    December - February I Rock is packed almost every night with students trying to pick up tuition and school expenses for the coming year. . A lot of the girls from the provinces come to Lima just for that reason.
    Prices vary for several reasons. Picking a "pro" early will cost the most. NOTE ... some of these girls are drop dead gorgeous and they know it. They usually ask for more than the non pros anyway. Probably $150 per hour.
    Pick a non pro and it will cost less and you will probably get more for your money in the long run. A non pro will more than likely meet you again without the hassle of meeting up at T Rock. They are eager to give out their numbers if they like you.
    Late at night (3AM- 5AM) will get you the best price. Even the best looking Colombians will negotiate late at night...$100 for at least an hour, probably more. She will more than likely stay the rest of the night with you in your apartment if you want.
    One more thing .... Most of the girls do not gather at Tequila Rock before midnight. There is a bar in Larcomar ( the seaside shopping mall) named Bartini. This is where the girls go before Tequila Rock. They dance , drink cheap , and possibly meet a local guy.
    Like I said .... I go to Lima 3-4 times a year. I know from experience what I am writing about.
    One guy wrote about the night clubs and how expensive they are. He is right. He is also right about how beautiful the ladies are. You will have to look far and wide to find prettier women. I have been to Russia a half dozen times and the dark haired Russians got nothin' on the Latin girls.
    BUT .... if you are willing to spend a few extra soles for an entrance fee and an expensive round of drinks, I assure you , any girl in that night club will give you her number and agree to meet you on the QT. Been there done that !!!!

  27. I cannot believe it...you guys pay $150 for an hour with a whore...$12 a beer. This is sick, especially knowing that latina girls is far from being lean...hihihi...do they sell it by the pounds? Me, I go to Asia where I pay $50 for a whole night. Hey, the last one I got enjoyed it so much that she did not want my money.... she just fell in love..yeah, she found out the man to satisfy her....took me 2 weeks to send her back home. I was thinking to go to Lima but it looks like not really my cup of tea... sounds too much like America and American women business... and I never call a whore in America as it just doesn't worth it... thank you guys for sharing your thoughts I really appreciate. I will stick with my small and tight asian girls. However, I could go for the latin music by definitively not for the girls...wow...I am still under shock from reading that whores ask for $150 an hour, I cannot believe a woman worth that much.....

  29. Thanks for enlightening us Anonymous...I guess I was thrown off by the fact that one of them offered me sex for S/. 50. I suppose it's possible that's what she was offering to pay for sex with me. I didn't stick around to find out.

  32. After having a relationship/marriage to a very attractive Peruvian woman, I have to say that the better looking Peruvian Putas export themselves to USA, Europe, or other richer countries to hook a rich man to marry. They, overall are very money motivated. I was one of the schmucks that got hooked. haha...Live and learn

  33. To bad Bartini is closed :( I liked having the freedom to chose between foreign girls looking for fun, Peruvian girls looking for money spenders and hookers trying to reel you in. Now I have to go to three different places to get what Bartini used to offer in one place.... Shame

  34. The woman of Peru, are all bricheras, whether they have a professional day job or not. They will "hook" a man using their tactics and it is all about gaining a "whiter" level of society. Peru is about class structure, and it is very 1950s in it social integration. Blacks at the low end, the native Indiacitas, and then the white upper class that took a big hit in the 1980's. To understand Peruvian woman you have to understand the culture, and if you can offer her a comfortable life, she will be loyal to you, until you take her for granted, and then the cat will prowl once again. Be careful with Peruvian, and South American woman overall. A man-woman relationship is all about compromise, what you, as a man are willing to give up for the the emotional psychotic logic of a woman. Granted, they are all psychotic from a scale of 1 to 10, and it usually goes along with how pretty they look. What are you willing to give up to put up with the psychosis and never ending neediness of a woman overall. One thing is certain...they, women, as a group, are never satisfied.

  35. Prostitution is all about service, you won't get any if you haggle down a 3rd world girl to next to nothing. I know there's plenty of tow truck drivers and McDonalds employees in privileged countries who's broke as a joke lifestyle in the west makes them appear wealthy in a 3rd world country but don't act like king shit of turd island and screw over some desperate girl because it's easy for you to exploit them. Even in countries where it's legal like Brazil prostitutes are still open to extortion from pimps, harassment from corrupt police and unthinkable violence, plus public shaming from the local moral 'authorities' that makes them unemployable or targets for criminals, don't add to their misery. If you pay decent you just may be surprised what an awesome time you have instead of arguing over $50 like you're buying a carpet in Morocco or something.
