With the current crackdown on red light districts and massage parlours everywhere in the country, for instance in Kalijodo in Jakarta or Dolly in Surabaya, online prostitution has been booming in Indonesia.

Surprisingly, sexual services are not necessarily advertised through specific adult dating sites. Many of the famous online prostitution sites like SeekingArrangement or Adult Friend Finder, are blocked by the government and only available if you download a VPN (see Best VPN for Indonesia to see how to do).
SeekingArrangement, the largest sugar baby website in the world, is growing quickly in Indonesia
Prostitutes, pimps and mafias use mainstream websites and apps instead like Facebook, Twitter, WeChat, BeeTalk, Instagram, Badoo or Tinder. If you are using any of these, you have probably noticed that there are more and more profiles of prostitutes, to the point that it can ruin the experience for "normal" users.

This is the case on WeChat. They have an interesting feature called "Look Around" that can be used to meet people near you. In Indonesia, it has been completely hijacked by organized online prostitution. As soon as you turn it on, you'll receive chat requests from various "spas" and "massage girls" offering to visit you in your room 24/7. You can barely see normal people anymore.

On the dating app Badoo, it has become very difficult to meet girls who are not looking for money, directly or indirectly. They rarely mention openly that they are prostitutes but they will often say in their profiles things like: "Butuh uang (need money)", "Tidak suka cowok pelit (I don't like stingy guys), "I like shopping", etc.

Some are more straightforward and will write: "Open for BO (Booking Out) to your hotel for LT /ST (Long Time/Short Time).

In this case, it is likely that the person behind the profile is a pimp and not the actual girl. It's only after you agree to a transaction and pay a down payment (DP) that he will contact the girl, pick her up, and bring her to your place. In some cases, the girls have a hotel room or an apartment where they can meet customers. Kalibata City is famous for having many apartments used entirely for online prostitution. 

On Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, prostitutes can easily be found using some specific hashtags such as #bokingcewek#wanitabayaran, #cewekbispak and many more. Those looking for girls in a specific location will add a city name, for instance: #bispaksurabaya (bispak means "bisa pakai" = "can be used"). For any of these keywords, hundreds of girls profiles will show up.

They manage their fan pages in a professional way, teasing their fans with pictures and exclusive videos, posting screenshots of clients bank transfers, giving information about their whereabout and their availability.

Some will also do packages and promotions, just like any real, well-organized massage parlor, spa or bordello. On Twitter, Riri Manja 28 does a phone sex promotion for April for instance:

Prostitutes and their pimps rely also on Whatsapp, Line and BlackBerry Messenger to communicate with clients and set up meeting locations and time. 

Recently, some bigger groups have emerged, managing several girls at once. For instance, the Silvi Group that operates on Instagram has a network of girls in Jakarta, Medan, Surabaya and Palembang. Go Crot operates on twitter, managing dozens of girls in Surabaya.

The Police has made very few arrests so far. It is probably impossible for them to stop this trend as both the demand and offer for prostitution are so high in Indonesia.

Considering this, though, I wonder if it is a smart move for the Government to go ahead with its plan to close down all red-light districts by 2019. We see that the sex trade will just move from the streets to the virtual world.

Are the girls safer online? Wouldn't it better, as Ahok suggested, to legalize prostitution and to organize it in dedicated spaces? This could make the job easier for the Government and NGOs to protect sex workers from abuse/violence and to give them counseling and regular medical check-ups.

  1. I tried to find a girl online on instagram twitter, they all seem flaky and fake. All want money transfer and deposit before anyhthing. Sounds like a big scam.

    1. Ya, wondering the same. PORN star types offering at 600k-2jt/h and 50% down payment sounds too cheap and easy for them to not simply disappear.
      Especially those that show off stashes of money in their pages that they NO WAY make at those tariffs...
      Anyone with good or bad experience?

    2. I chatted with a gorgeous girl once... she offered to come to my room for a massage for 100$... 30 minute later, a different girl showed up, old and ugly, and she didn't even know about me (obviously the "girl" i was chatting with was a pimp)...

  4. I visited the usual places during my last visit in Feb/Mar 2016 - Classic, Ds Place, King Cross, Kimochi etc....also attempted to hookup with local girls/freelances. Mixed success there. Meet a very sweet girl in BeetTalk who came to my hotel and spent couple of hours. She indicated - in my room -company was chargeable but did not mention how much. I expected that of course and responded with a hug and reassurance but no amount mentioned. While she was leaving I gave her 500K which she seemed perfectly happy accepting. I'm still in touch with her and hope to meet her in my next visit.
    Rest of my experience using Badoo and Beetalk has been pathetic. Don't know whether it's wise to pay advance booking amount as I've been scammed twice.
    I think I'll try these professional groups suggested as there's less chance of being scammed

    1. in badoo mostly younger girls from 20-30...

      I can recommend Indonesian Cupid for older girls as it has a wider range of women... Most are not prostitutes but some could be interested by free stuff...

      The PIN you are talking about is the Blackberry Messenger Pin... You can download the app to chat with them...

  9. A famous predecessor of Ahok, Governor Ali Sadikin (also known as Bang Ali) did the same thing. He legalised prostitution and gambling and solved a lot of problems that way. He also created a lot of income for the city by taxing it. Bang ali was a former Marine Corps General and was afraid of nobody, not even president Suharto. Those were the days.

  20. I have loved Indonesia (and Indonesian girls) since my first visit in 1993, enjoyed hookers at discos and whores in brothels until mid 2000's, ... now it's all turned into crap (and getting worse). This country is still good for many other things, but for girls... regional neighbours (Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand) are sooo much better!

  21. Just sharing my true story, im a 30 years old escort lady. I start this kind of work since new year 2018 cuz of debt problems with moneylender. I started being escort at kal*bata city apartment, most of clients was local guys. They pay around 300k - 800k idr. But mostly only 300 sometimes 400 and 500. Its not enough for me cuz i have lot of debts. Online (cr*cker) is better for me, i can get 1 mill - 3 mill idr for short time. And foreigners treated me better than locals at kal*bata city. But now i cant get clients anymore since FBI shutdown b*ckpage. Im not available for locals anymore to keep my privacy. Cuz i was born here and raise here.
    I hope i can find a web as good as b*ckpage/cr*cker again soon cuz i have 2 kids to support.
