Online Prostitution is Booming in Indonesia

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
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 , Smooci , 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.

10 Best Men Spas & Massage Parlours in Jakarta (Updated 2019)

By The Jakarta Team →
There are two kinds of massage parlours in Jakarta: * "Family Spas" or "Day Spas" are providing normal massages and treatments for both men and women, without any sexual services. The best ones are located in South Jakarta, in malls or in 5 stars hotels. I wrote about my favorite ones here:  Jakarta's Best Normal Massage and Spa . * Men's Spas" offer what is called a  "plus plus", or an extra service (ranging from sex to a handjob), they are reserved for men. This article will be about them. Men's spas in Jakarta are hedonistic temples, the likes of which you won't find in Europe or in the US. It’s not only a massage you can get there, but various services to help you relax and feel good. Typically, they include a hot and cold pool, a jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, a lounge, a gym, a theater, etc. Some have an oxygen room, free food, etc. You can go to any of the places mentioned below and use their facilities for usual

Sagitarius Hotel, Lounge and Spa (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Sagitarius, also called Sagita, is an upscale men's spa and lounge located in the city center of Jakarta. It is one street behind All Seasons Thamrin , just 5 minutes away from the BNI Sudirman train station and less than 10 minutes walking distance from Grand Indonesia. Opened in June 2018, it is also home to a "hotel" and a rooftop called Arrow. It is one of the rare massage parlors with "plus plus" (sexual services) that are easily accessible from the Central Business District and I guess it will be popular quickly. This only other one I can think of is Fortune , near Le Méridien Hotel . It is typical of other similar venues in Jakarta: On the 2nd floor, you have the spa lounge, which is quite large and can accommodate some events occasionally (DJs, sexy dancer shows, live music etc). Next are the facilities, sauna, steam, cold and hot pool. The overall atmosphere is dark but soothing as you feel like being in a bubble isolated from the re

108 Club (Previously known as Illigals Hotel & Club)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Update July 2018 : Illigals just changed its name to 108 The New Atmosphere . I haven't visited yet as I'm not in Indonesia at the moment. I will write about it around August/September. From what I've heard, it's pretty much the same as before. I think the change is only a way for Illigals to keep a lower profile. Until I review 108 Club, you can read my old review of Illigals: Illigals Hotel and Club is the new BIG one stop entertainment venue in Jakarta, and it replaces the old 1001 , which used to be one of North Jakarta's most crazy place (the "sashimi sex" night club in the book Jakarta Underground). To have it name Illigals is somehow a huge provocation and a sign that some people in Indonesia can do pretty much anything they want. I don't know who the owner of Illigals is, but I can imagine he is very well protected. The owner of 1001 also has Mille's and Millennium , that also have quite a reputation for being ecstasy factori

Taman Palem Nightlife (Cengkareng): Bars, Spa, Karaoke

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
By coincidence, I discovered yesterday that there was a growing red light district near Taman Palem Mall in Cengkareng , West Jakarta. I had a little walk in the area and I counted at least 15 massage parlours, bars, karaokes and spas, all of which obviously catering to male customers. Basically, the location is between the Mall Taman Palem and the  Aston Cengkareng , the only hotel around (which, by the way, has its own spa called Terminal 2). Customers seem to come from the large residential complexes nearby (City Resort, City Park, Mutiara, Pasadena). Also, since the area is near the airport, I imagine there are some visitors who are on transit or on business trips. Here are a few of the massage parlours, spas, karaokes and bars I saw: Note: I did not visit any of the venues listed below. All the information is from internet.  Terminal II Spa and KTV This is the most expensive spa in the area, with prices reaching up to IDR750,000 for 60 minutes. For th

Grand Orchardz Kemayoran Spa and Hotel (Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
The 4-star Grand Orchardz Hotel Kemayoran has just opened in June 2018. It is the most luxurious hotel of the Orchardz brand, a chain famous in Indonesia for having naughty massage parlors inside their walls. The spa in Grand Orchardz Kemayoran is actually not opened yet, but it will be in September 2018.  There is a good chance that it will be popular, just like its other branches in Jakarta (for more info about them, click  Orchardz Bandara and Orchardz Spas ).

Alexis Hotel, Club and Karaoke (Ancol) - CLOSED

By The Jakarta Team →
Update 30 October 2017: Alexis was shut down by the new Governor of Jakarta. As I explained in my article Jakarta Nightlife in 2017  (last paragraph), this was likely to happen because it was an important campaign promise. 2nd Update 10 January 2018: Alexis is still open, except for the last floor, the spa, whose activities have been transferred to 1001 and Emporium. The club and the karaoke are operating as usual. The Hotel Alexis is not really a hotel, it’s more like a bordello. You’ve got a good club downstairs, The Play, with house/progressive music and sexy dancers, and a very select lounge/spa on the seventh floor, the Bathhouse, with girls from countries as far as Uzbekistan, Myanmar or Russia coming to entertain the patrons. Entrance fee for the Bathhouse lounge is Rp. 120,000, and no drinks included. Also a karaoke on the 5th floor (I forgot the name), very nice, with flat screen TV and audio equipment suitable for outdoor concerts. Goddam expensive though, about R

Standing BLOW IN - A Glory Hole Massage Parlor near Jakarta)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
While things are getting stricter in Jakarta (closing of Alexis), prostitution venues are growing like mushrooms in South Tangerang. I recently learned about a new place called Standing BLOW IN, which is a brothel/blowjob bar with a unique concept for Indonesia as they have a room with a glory hole. If you frequently watch porn movies , you probably know that a glory hole is a hole in a wall where a man can insert his penis. On the other side, a woman or a man is supposed to play with it. The thrill comes from not knowing who is behind the wall. They offer several types of services (info taken from their website): - 30-minute session in glory hole room: IDR120,000 with naked girl (I don't really understand the point as you are not supposed to see her) - 60-minute session: IDR160,000 with topless girl (includes a body massage and a BJ). You can get VIP room (with shower) for IDR40,000 extra. It normally includes a "cuci kolong" handjob (from b
