DARMSTADT I lived in Darmstadt for three years, and it is a fun place in many ways. For those who do not know it, it is about 60 kilometres south of Frankfurt on the A5. There is a large British and Italian presence there, the Italians work the Pizza parlours and hotels, the Brits are mainly engineers working for the European Space Agency which has its control centre there. BORDELLOS Bordellos are refreshingly open about themselves, look for a building with large lettering on the roof and chances are you just found one. Prices are displayed at the door, or you can phone up and ask. I never went myself but frineds of mine recommend the CRAZY SEXY in Pfungstadt, just head for the Pfungstadt Brewery (the beer incidently is superb!) or follow the signs for the Continent Supermarket, you cannot miss it, it has a red neon in every window, big letters on the roof and a flashing sign "Crazy Sexy" outside. I am told prices vary from 200 marks to 500 depending on the quality of the girl (they are usually ordered according to floors) and what you want. PROSTITUTES During the day some real hags can be found at the back of the Space Agency, head out of town toward Griesheim for about 2 miles and follow the signs for ESOC. When you come to the main gate look for a road nearly opposite heading off into the woods, one goes to a cemetry, the other will have a van parked in a layby and some very mature women hanging around. You pay at the van. Travel further up and there is a bigger area with two big white vans waiting, these have two tall and long legged girls waiting, they look great, but as I lived about three hundred yards away at the time, just too close to home!! In the evening you can usually find a few reasonable girls by the Darmstadt Brewery, just opposite the main train station in town, preferred pick up is a car. Don't expect anything fantastic, the best girls work out of the brothels or work the big conference hotel next to the station. Contacts are the best method. There is a magazine called Happy Weekend available everywhere. It is a contact mag that makes the british efforts look sick, it is divided into commercial and non commercial contacts and the photographs include total hard core, its worth getting just for them! There are plenty of ads to suit all tastes in and around Darmstadt, and some even advertise "English spoken" the mag will also list all the brothals with sample photographs, massage parlours and saunas, swing clubs etc. It is a must for the fun loving traveller in Germany. SWING CLUBS Too many to list, most of them tend to be down towards Karnischstein and Heidelberg. We went to one a few times with some American friends of ours, what can I say, great ambience, terrific openess, not seedy at all. Strictly couples only, though some advertise a guest night when you can take a single male with you. No pressure, relaxed, fun, expensive. There is a door charge and a surcharge on the drinks, probably because so few people actually do drink. There is usually a buffet and its handy to rent a room. Don't expect to come home with change out of a thousand marks. No point giving you the address of that one though, it is being re-developed now, but there are plenty more around, and you can guarentee to find at least one English or American couple, and most Germans speak excellant English. VOYEUR/EXHIBITIONIST If your an exhibitionist then just pull into any layby on the A5 between Heidelberg and Frankfurt (probably other places too). The ones that advertise a WC are usually the best as they are set back further from the Autobahn. If you are a couple you will literally draw a crowd, we found it disconcerting at first, but they were actually polite and well behaved, they just made no pretence about the fact that they were there to watch you in action! No one ever banged on the window, tried to get in or cause trouble. But we did prefer to find the quieter places away from the towns where only two or three would appear. Sometimes couples go with the intent of watching other couples and prefer something a bit more discrete. We parked up innocently once on a trip back from England and relaxed in the car, giggling a bit at the inevitable voyeurs who were hovering, we were just too tired to oblige. There was a couple in the car next to us also not playing, but after a while the man got out and discretely popped a note through my partly open window, it contained directions to an out of the way place in the woods by Schloss Frankenstein (I'm not kidding, it is there, look it up on a map!) Somehow we found the energy! We know of others who liked to show off in this way too, and no one ever had a problem, which is not to say of course there is some risk! I would advise you lock your doors, don't forget the hatch back, and keep your keys handy to drive away. Also don't go to the toilet, it will be taken by some as an invitation to join the party! If you prefer something less sleazy get the Happy Weekend magazine and look up a swinging club. You can try for other couples, but we found as many time wasters advertising in Germany as in England. GAY There is plenty of gay activity, and its easy to find. If you don't fancy the club scene, again advertised in Happy Weekend, then go to the same laybys on your own. Wind your window down (or keep it up if you just want to watch and be watched), pull your plonker out and if you don't get one man standing by the car watching you, and probably showing you his, then you really picked a bad night! You can invite him into the car with you just by unlocking the door, but you are more likely to see him wander off into the woods, that is your invitation to join him. Most will speak English. Some will stay close to the layby in which case you can expect an audience, others will go deeper into the woods for privacy (laybys on the A5 almost always have woods around them). Alternatively you can walk to the toilet. They are usually small, one or two cubicles at the most and a double urinal. Lots of messages in English on the walls, you can leave one yourself if you like or browse for promising rendezvous yourself. Its usefull to check for the best places to park as it changes. The police will occasionally stake out a layby, but its drug dealers they are after, couriers driving in a load and dispersing it to their dealers. If you want attention stand by the urinal holding onto your pal, you will soon get someone beside you with his on display. Alternatively go into the cubicle and leave the door open, someone will follow you and lock the door. The action tends to be mainly oral, lots of it. If you don't get enough first time around just stay in the cubicle, you can bet you will get other visitors very shortly. In Darmstadt itself there are a few sex shops. The best for meetings is just off the main pedestrian precinct. Stand at the statue that looks a bit like Nelson's column in the centre and look up the precinct past the cinema on your right. The precinct comes to a crossroad effect, go right past the Burger King and the place is on your left just past where the precint ends. It changes its name occasionally, but not the fun. Inside there are a number of cinemas upstairs, at least one of which will be showing a gay film in deep darkness. But on the ground floor are some really neat video booths, some are just plain ones, but most have a sliding panel in each of the side walls. You go in, slide open your panels, and if someone in the adjacent booth opens his then the night (or day) just got interesting. You can just watch each other, or take turns pushing your pal through the hole. You will probably be invited into the others booth at some point, the proprieter does not care so long as you keep feeding the coin machine. Its a great place to make a casual pickup, or just watch others in action if that is your interest.
