The nights in the capital of Catalonia are hot, passionate, and full of temptations. It is hard to provide a complete guide of all the pleasures that one could experience in Barcelona. The city does not have a Red Light District designed as such, but there are a couple of places capable to satisfy the lust for almost any kind of salacity. Any desire for some lascivious entertainment in Barcelona should start with its vibrant main street La Rambla. The ladies of the night could be found in the west part of the street where some sex shops start popping up. For approximately €2-8 you could even get lucky to watch a live striptease show in a booth. Be alert of the essence of this area though and do not wander there after midnight without the awareness of the surrounding.
The next stop in the search of pleasure in Barcelona naturally passes through the nearby neighborhood El Raval in the Ciutat Vella district, also known as the Barrio Chino. Due to its location near the port or due to other reasons, the area is famous for its nightlife, including prostitution, drugs and crime. Currently its population is mainly consist of immigrants from South America, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. The diversity of beautiful women that could be seen in Barcelona during the day is completely reflected in the night entertainment of the city. From exotic Latin American women to Eastern European and Asian beauties, morenas and rubias, transexual, gay or lesbian, there is something for all.
It is not that hard to get some taste of the Spanish night thrill in Barcelona. The city is free of prejudices and stereotypical judgements. Along with the Erotic Museum of Barcelona and its various sex shops, one might experience the excitement and relief of taking the journey to experimenting, discovering and pursuing its known and unknown desires. The city can offer plenty of intriguing bars, live shows and erotic entertainments among which are the notorious Kiss Me Bar or Baghdad Club with entrance fee for its shows of €90 per person with included consumption.
Even though the prostitution in Spain is officially illegal and brothels are banned, there is significant tolerance for special clubs and wiskerias that are used as the front points of prostitution. The Spanish society acknowledges the sex work even in its highest art and culture such as the famous painting of Picasso – The Young Ladies of Avignon, or Cervantes´ novel Don Quixote, in which prostitution is discussed.
The diverse, liberal and ardent spirit of Barcelona makes it a great place for pursuance of any lusty desire one may have.
