A club, brothel, bordello, whorehouse or bawdy house is a place where you can sex in Austria. Brothel originates from the French word bordel, or formerly called bardeau. Although there are many differences, the 'classixl' brothels have two common elements: a bar where customers expect and relaxing and a series of rooms where models have sex with customers. Although it is common, visitors are not required to have sex with the girls and the clubs and can just have a nice talk with a drink at the bar. Also some clubs are specialised on certain events, such as for Swingers or couples.
