  • prostitution
  • strip clubs or other sexy shows

  • "quality" information on prostitutes in different destinations, beyond a few general comments
    • locations or listings of bordellos and bars where prostitutes can be found

Note that this policy applies whether or not the sexual activity in question is legal in the destination.
