Despite being one of the world’s most visited cities, Venice is not high on the list of most tourists looking for something a little salacious. Due to Italy’s complete ban on brothels, as well as oddly regulated prostitution laws, it can seem almost impossible to find a great experience in the city. At one point in the distant past, the city actively encouraged prostitution, with the Ponte delleTette (Bridge of Teats) being sanctioned for use by topless prostitutes, in the hope of discouraging homosexuality in medieval Italy. Sadly, the city now frowns upon such behaviour.
The symbol for sex workers rights, the red umbrella, was actually first used by Venetian sex workers, who want to be able to do business in a safe manner. As such, there is no shortage of services on offer,however, it is just a case of knowing where to look. Whilst Venice is famous for its canals, the mainland Mestre district is actually where you want to go, if you are searching for some excitement.
The Mestre train station is a known hive of activity when the sun goes down and, as long as you do not approach any of the girls in a car, you should not encounter any problems. The restrictions have led to a high class experience flourishing in Venice, with many women working from their own apartment and for themselves. As such, there is a lot more intimacy and a sense of professionalism. To this end, many women run their own websites, which allows them a greater degree of control over what they offer and allows you to schedule visits into your holiday schedule. Miss FetishDea is a great example of the standards you can expect, with her website making it clear what the boundaries are. It may seem unorthodox but such people are your best bet of finding out about BDSM masquerade parties, which are not usually widely advertised. Bear in mind that they are earning a living, so the information won’t be offered freely but it can make for a useful thing to bear in mind if you are in the process of making arrangements.
If you are staying in a high class venue in Venice itself, then you will find that the women will come to you. The streets outside such hotels are popular with street walkers and, whilst it can be tempting to try and pick someone up here, they will most likely refuse once they realise that you are not staying at that hotel. If you stick to local streets or online services, you should be able to find whatever you need to scratch an itch. It’s an unusual way of conducting business but it has become the standard in the city and, as such, it is done extremely well by women who take their trade seriously.
