All over the world people find different ways how to "hide" and "find" the sex service, so don`t try to find a strip club or gogo bar in Shanghai - simply because that kind of locations not exist. Here the prostitution will be provided for example in sauna clubs or KTV clubs.
Unfortunately for the Chinese government the sex business is very closed to corruption, so the ongoing "war against corruption" the last years nearly dry out the sex industry all over China.
As a Shanghai visitor, you can be lucky that you have selected probably the only still existing "island of fun" in China.
The sex industry in Shanghai has become less obviously and went into the "underground", but at least not blown away like in other cities.
But you need to keep in mind, that some activities include a high risk to get caught by police, but there are also enough ways in Shanghai to have fun where the police not care about (or is even involved).
The bad "news" first: Any kind of paid sexual service is against the Chinese law and will be seriously fined (from some thousand RMB, up to 20 days jail and a visa ban)! The good news is, that there are a lot of "safe" options to get great sex service in Shanghai where you will not risk to get in trouble like for example sex sauna clubs or outcall escort! But you better get clear what kind of activities are more risky and where you can enjoy more safe fun without the risk to get in trouble. .
For the actual situation and general overview check out our section with the "police activities".
Compared with most other cities in this size all over the world, Shanghai is incredible safe. You can walk around in nighttime even with your Iphone in the hands or take the metro late night alone and there is nearly no risk to get in any kind of trouble. For sure there are some pickpockets, especially around the tourist hotspots, but not a lot like you would have in New York or Paris.
But there is kind of rip off where every day dozens of tourist lost thousands of Dollars. There are pimps in typical tourist areas who search for foreign visitors to guide them into a massage shop, coffee place, restaurant, girls bar or what ever, but you will always end up with some bats who threaten you to empty your wallet and credit card. But on the other side it is totally easy to avoid that. You just need to follow one easy rule.
"NEVER EVER follow anyone who approach you on the street to bring you anywhere - no guy, no student, no women - NO ONE!"
There is a clear line between the "normal business" and the "rip off scene". While the "black shops" will never provide a reliable service, the "normal shops" will not rip off their clients. And luckily no reliable shop work with this "pimps" to get clients, while all the rip off provider only find their victims by pimps, so who not follow a pimp will not get ripped off. And for sure all the locations we provide on our page here will be "rip off risk free"!

If you are not in Shanghai already and prepare your trip, there are some easy ways to make more out of your stay.
Shanghai is a really big city, so you can spend hours in a car - even on the highway - from one end to the other, so it can waste a lot of time to select the wrong area. Shanghai is divided in two parts by a river. The new industrial zone on the east side of the town where also the main airport is located which is called "Pudong" and the "old part of the town" on the west side which called "Puxi". The police in Pudong is much more strict, so that there are much less options than in Puxi, so for a visitor who plan to have fun with girls Puxi is the better place to stay. Here the Jing An district is a good choice, because from here it`s easy to visit locations all around and also not to far away if you call girls to your place or you want to pick up a girl in a bar.
Officially girls are not allowed to enter stay your hotel room after 10 pm or stay overnight without a registration - which is something most girls avoid to make sure they not show up in a "police data base" as girls who stay with several guys in several hotels - which would be an obvious sign of their activities. But typical for Shanghai is, that no good hotel care about that regulation, so you will normally not get any problem, as long you not select a cheap or low level Chinese hotel. There has no case in the last years where a guest of a western orientated 5 star hotel got in trouble, but there are several chases where the police raid 4 star hotels - sometimes even called by the hotel stuff when they got a doubt of "illegal activities". So if you plan to have sex with girls in your room, better don`t book a low level hotel.

P.S.: If you need a short time booking, have a look here: "love hotels".
Keep in mind, that many webpages are blocked by the "great firewall of China". Basically all kind of "naughty pages" will not be available, but because of the "political issue", there are also many popular web service provider blocked, like for example all Google services (including Youtupbe, Gmail and Google Maps), but also Twitter, many news pages and so on. If you need to access some of this pages, better book a VPN service. And if you use Gmail, don`t forget to prepare an alternative e-mail account including an e-mail forwarding to avoid problems.
P.S.: Till now our Nightlife page is not blocked in China, but it could be that you sometimes need to be more patient because we for sure not use a server inside of China, so the firewall reduce the loading speed.
Whatsapp is not blocked in China, so you can use it without any problems, but you need to know, that nearly no one in China use Whatsapp, so if you want to get in touch with local people - which is for example necessary to visit a sauna club, than you need to use the Wechat App instead of Whatsapp.
In fact Wechat is a really good chat app and easy to use, so no need to worry that it will cause problems. But the most important feature for you will probably be the in App translation which will allow you to chat with guys who don`t understand any English, even you don`t have any Chinese skills.
