San Francisco

The city of San Francisco is famous for many things; libertarian attitudes and a vibrant gay community, the biggest financial hub in California, the oldest and largest Chinatown in North America, Irish coffee, denim jeans, and world famous attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz.

The city is arguably one of the largest cultural centers in the USA and for good reason. It is the second-most densely populated city after New York, with a diverse ethnic makeup and a combination of many different immigrant cultures.

San Francisco’s rise to fame began during the California Gold Rush of 1848 after James Marshall found gold at Sutter’s Mill. By 1852 the tiny fishing village grew into a city with over 35,000 inhabitants. Today, the 49 square miles that make up San Francisco are home to an average of 800,000 people.

The meteoric growth of the city over the past 160 years has led it to become one of the largest and wealthiest financial hubs in the world. San Francisco ranks fourth in the world – after New York, Moscow, and London – in terms of numbers of billionaires that call it home. The city is also a world famous tourist destination known for its long foggy summers, steep rolling hills, cable cars, Victorian style architecture, extravagant public bath houses, and several historical landmarks.

San Francisco has an interesting history of sexual expression and freedom. During the 60s, it was the epicenter of what is now known as the Hippie Revolution and the site of the historically famous Summer of Love phenomenon. The city became a melting pot of sex, love, drugs, music, art, and politics in the summer of 1967.

Freedom of self-expression is hammered in the very foundation of San Francisco’s diverse culture and its residents are very open about sexual activities. The city has a large number of strip clubs, escort services, massage parlors, and sex shops. San Francisco also boasts one of the largest LGBT communities in the world.

Prostitution San Francisco

Despite having fairly liberal attitudes, prostitution is illegal in San Francisco. The state of California and the city of San Francisco passed a motion to make all sex work illegal as of February 2014 - even though the city already has an officially accepted red light district and a long history of prostitution going back as far as the Gold Rush.

Broadway strip in North Beach is – albeit illegally – San Francisco’s quasi red-light district. It’s not a red-light district in the sense that sex is openly on sale with prostitutes roaming the streets looking for work; it’s more of an artists’ haven and one of the main nightlife spots in the city filled with strip clubs, sex clubs, peep-shows, and a large selection of bars and night clubs.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to hire a street prostitute despite the law against the practice, check out Geary Corridor from Union Square to Polk Street, the theater districts in North Beach, and the Tenderloin. Always discuss prices upfront and always have safe sex.

If you don’t want to risk arrest and a fine for soliciting a prostitute, consider trying some local escort services:

  • Private of San Francisco is an independent escort service with a large variety of models of all ages and ethnicities offering dates for dinners and other events, dancers for bachelor parties, or dates for a quiet and fun night indoors. The men and women who work for escort agencies are known for being discreet and they are screened regularly for STDs. They are a much safer - and legal - alternative to street prostitutes.
  • Asian Web Cam Girls If you can’t get enough of Asian girls and you’re looking for something right here, right now to satisfy your needs, then checkout these girls. All of them have webcams and all of them can be accessed for free. Deep access does require membership, but it’s free to signup, so there’s no harm done.

Gay Scene in San Francisco

San Francisco is famous for being America’s LGBT hub. The city has been at the forefront of the gay rights movement since the early 60s and it has had many successes for the LGBT community since then. To name a few; in 1966, San Francisco held the first recorded transgender riots in US history, and in 1978, artist Gilbert Baker created the rainbow flag – the internationally known symbol of LGBT pride and the gay rights movement. California was also the first state to legalize gay marriage in 2004. With all these accomplishments, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that San Francisco has one of the largest and most open gay communities in the world.

The gay scene is mainly concentrated in Castro District, near the intersection of 18th and Castro. Market Street also has a thriving gay scene and it’s a great alternative if you don’t feel like hanging in Castro. If you’re cruising and looking for hook ups, check out Blow Buddies in SoMa. It’s listed as the best gay sex club by the Bay Area Reporter, promoting safe sex and consensual fun for men over 18 years of age.

San Francisco has bars and nightclubs which cater to all members of the LGBT community. For the transgender-centric entertainment, try Divas. It features a different fun theme almost every day of the week - Wednesday to Saturday mainly. If you simply want a fun night out without any particular expectations then visit Aunt Charlie’s Lounge along the Tenderloin, it offers fun entertainment for all members of the gay community.

Strip Clubs in San Francisco

San Francisco has strip clubs aplenty. The aforementioned Broadway strip in the North Beach district is ground zero for all things strip club.

The Condor is a good place to start if you’re looking for a mix of pleasure and fun history. It was the first topless club to open in the US in 1964 and it’s still a popular choice today.

For a bit of nude stage dancing fun, Crazy Horse is a good choice. The club features a large theater style stage where dancers perform sensual pole tricks and exotic acrobatic maneuvers.

Sex Shops in San Francisco

San Francisco has no shortage of sex shops. There are literally hundreds of them spread out all over the city and you can find shops which cater to all tastes, kinks, and fetishes.

If you’re a first timer who stereotypically thinks sex toys are sold in seedy, dirty shops with creepy clerks, try Good Vibrations. This shop is famous for its large clean and very well-lit store, friendly and helpful staff, and a diverse selection of different types of toys. Good Vibrations caters to all sexual orientations and it’s a great place for people looking to buy their first sex toy.

Rock Hard is another good choice. Located on Geary Street, the shop mainly caters to gay males but has fun toys for everyone.

Massage Parlors in San Francisco

With the biggest Chinatown in the whole of the US, it should surprise no one that San Francisco has a lot of Asian massage parlors – some of which offer proverbial happy endings. Separating the ones which do and those which don’t is the tricky part. To save you the trouble, those which accept cash only generally offer additional services.

Empire Health Club is an Asian massage parlor with 12 attractive and professional oriental masseuses who can perform Swedish, Korean, Chinese, and Thai massages, among other things. The establishment is conveniently located in downtown SF across the street from the Hilton Hotel.

Swingers in San Francisco

Couples are not forgotten in San Francisco. The city has plenty of swingers clubs which offer a safe environment for consenting couples to indulge and have fun. Many of these clubs are female-centric and almost all of them do not accept single males. Be sure to check the rules in advance if you’re alone.

Tangerine’s Dream is a great place for beginners. It offers an atmosphere of music, sensuality, and freedom for open-minded adults in upscale and safe venues. The club strongly encourages conversation among couples before the activities begin to make sure everyone is comfortable with participating. No pressure and no drama.

For experienced couples in the San Francisco Bay Area Twist is a good club. It hosts private parties for couples looking to explore their sexuality in safe and positive environments.

BDSM and Fetish Activities in San Francisco

San Francisco has its fair share of BDSM and fetish clubs where you can fulfill your deepest and darkest fantasies safely and in a discreet environment. Many of the clubs have special event nights that encourage couples and singles to come dressed up in their favorite play gear.

  • Power Exchange is one of those clubs. It has strict rules which include: no cameras or any other recording devices, no alcohol or drugs, no solicitation, no touching without permission, mandatory safe sex, and several other minor rules. The club is officially “pansexual” and it welcomes people of all sexual orientations as long as they can follow the rules.
  • Pro Domme is a great site with extensive listings of local SF dominatrices into all kinds of kinky BDSM activities.

Staying Safe in San Francisco

San Francisco is a relatively safe city but it has its dangerous areas just like any other big city in the US. Many of the places people – particularly tourists - frequent at night like Union Square, Fisherman’s Wharf, and others are generally safe but be wary of pickpockets in large crowds. If you’re unsure about your safety after dark then take a cab. Remember, you can always call the police by dialing 911 and make sure to get travelers health insurance if you’re not a US citizen just in case anything happens.
