A brothel or bordello is a place where people may come to engage in sexual activity with a prostitute. Technically, any premises where prostitution commonly takes place qualifies as a brothel. However, for legal or cultural reasons, establishments sometimes describe themselves as massage parlors, bars, strip clubs, body rub parlours, studios, or by some other description. Sex work in a brothel is considered safer than street prostitution.

Brothels and BDSM[edit]

Most brothels do not offer BDSM services, and most places that offer BDSM services for money are not brothels. However, occasionally the two are found combined, such as in a flagellatory brothel.
