As promised in this thread. I know we already had an ‘Ask the guy who visits prostitutes’ thread before, but I think our experiences differ enough to warrant another one. For one thing, I’ve never broken the law by paying for sex.
Eventhough I’m Dutch and live in the Netherlands, the brothels I visit are mostly to be found in Germany. They are called Saunaclubs and FKK clubs*, the idea behind these clubs is to combine welness and prostitution. These clubs usually have a couple of saunas, a whirlpool, a steam room, swimming pool(s), a solarium and often proffesional masseurs; hence the name Saunaclub. As one would expect in a welness centre, the male clientele walks around in bathrobes (or just a towel). These men in their (white) bathrobes were soon given the nickname Icebear**, hence the thread title.
A clubvisit typically starts by being buzzed in, after which you pay a fixed entry fee that includes the use of all facilities and all food and non-alcoholic drinks (sometimes beer as well). You then get a key for your locker and a bathrobe and/or towels. After showering and changing you enter the club and stay as long as you want (for me usually more than 8 hours). Typically you spend the time between sex by going to a sauna/whirlpool, reading a bit, having some food, watching some sports or talking with the girls or other icebears. In saunaclubs the girls walk around in bikini’s or lingerie (sometimes topless), while the dresscode in FKK clubs means that the girls are fully nude (hence the name) – except for high heels, stockings or sometimes other contraptions, as long as…ehmm the good bits aren’t covered. What happens with the girls (and how) differs from club to club, but in general you could say that when you want to go to a room with a girl, you start a conversation after which you go to said room. After you’re done you pay the girl directly (in cash), the girls are independent and pay the same entry fee as the customers; the club does not get a share.
I haven’t been doing this all that long, but I am fairly active on a Dutch message board focussed primarily on these clubs. Through talking (online and IRL) with other icebears and visiting clubs myself, I’ve gotten to know this scene pretty well.
So far for the introduction, ask me anything about the clubs, the girls, the messageboard or myself. Hell, if you want you can also ask me about the windows in the Netherlands (which I visited before I found out about Germany).
At some point people will always point out that FKK isn’t about sex, etc. I absolutely agree, but these brothels (mis)use this name. In general you can say that in Germany a FKK club* is a brothel and a FKK verein is a club for nudists. When in doubt look at the opening hours and entrance fees.
**I use icebear (and not polar bear) because it more closely resembles the Dutch and German ijsbeer and eisbaer.
Ps I’ll try to check in as much as I can, but keep in mind there’s a time difference and I also have work and a life, etc.
