The love motel is a place where couples go to have sex. You can pay by the hour, in two to four-hour blocks, or even all night usually beginning at 12:00am or 2:00am until noon that same day. Many Brazilians simply call them “motels”.
These love motels in Brazil are foreign to Americans because we really don’t have motels that are specifically built for sex.
Even though, we can assume a lot of sex is being had in American hotels and motels.
In a middle-priced love motel, each room is outfitted with a jacuzzi, a fridge with liquor and snacks, mirrors for you to watch yourself and channels with normal and adult content.
Now I know it sounds extremely unhygienic, but it really depends on the motel you stay at. If it is on the cheap side, well you get what you pay for. It’s no different from staying at a crappy motel in a seedy area in your current city.
However, most are very clean and well-kept. And they are just made for spending quality time with your girl, you have to visit one to understand.
To set the record straight, motels are not designed like the hotels you may be familiar with in America. For the most part, they are one or two story buildings, tucked away from streets so you can drive or take a taxi inside the premises into the garage that is usually attached to the room. It is very discreet.
If it is not a cheap motel, you probably won’t have to walk past anyone or their room.
Who Goes To Motels?
For many people, calling a place a “sex” or love motel sounds sleazy and a place where only whores and their tricks go. But to the contrary, engaged couples are some of the most common people who occupy them.
Other countries like Japan and France have love motels as well. They are apart of their culture and are normal.
In Brazil, many people live at home with their families until they are ready to get married or are able to financially take care of themselves without needing help. It’s difficult to have sex while your mother and father are sleeping in the next room.
So, instead of risking getting caught, a couple may head to motel for a few hours.
I haven’t personally seen the people who are in the love motels while I was checked in, but I would assume a lot of cheaters use them too. I’m a big proponent in not cheating if you are in a committed relationship, so I can’t defend these kind of men.
But if cheating’s your thing and you want to play around with a chick you got on the side in Brazil without getting caught at your place, love motels are always there.
Also, motels are ideal places for people who are staying in hostels or are in hotels. Although hostels are cheap and convenient, the price you pay is the lack of privacy.
So, love motels in Brazil are great to book when you want to treat yourself and your girl to a night alone.
An Example Of A Quality Motel Room
This room is R$ 135 or around $40 USD per night (12 hours). Many travelers who are on a budget even use motels to sleep overnight. So, they aren’t necessarily just for sex.
However, the best rooms like the one above are usually booked in advance. So, if you want a nice love motel room, you will have to make a reservation.
DO’S & DON’TS Of Love Motel Etiquette
- DO act as if you have been there before even if you haven’t.
- DON’T try to get just anybody to a love motel. Yes, it’s a common occurrence but only between two horny people. There needs to have been some type of sexual tension between both of you before you even think about taking it to a sex motel.
- DO check into a motel even if you have your own place. It’s cool to have your own spot where you set the mood, but there is no normal apartment that can compete with the layout and design of a love motel room. So for a night or two out the week if you get lucky, try to set up a love motel run.
- DON’T be cheap and stay in any motel you see on the street. Sometimes you really do pay for quality and in this instance it is true. If the room is less than R$60, it’s probably not a place you want to lay your head.
- DO bring your own alcohol and food. Sometimes, it’s a spur of the moment type of thing, so you won’t be able to pre plan. But if you and your girl already know you both want to head to a love motel in a day or two, stock up on what you think you will need if you are staying overnight. The motel menu can be more expensive than what you pay in a regular store.
- DON’T trip if you meet a woman who is “disgusted” at the idea of a love motel. We know women act like they are innocent angels and have no idea where babies come from. Brazil is a huge Catholic country, so you might come across a woman who acts like she has never been to one, but that’s just game. Scan the situation and if you believe she is just testing you, keep your game face on and continue the courting.
