The solicitation of sex for money by prostitutes who rent rooms at the Hotel Lisboa in Macau is openly allowed by management. This has made the lobby area a scene of controversial because the hotel management does not warn guests that they are willingly allowing prostitution solicitation on their rental property. Other hotels in Macau such as the MGM, Wynn, Galaxy and Star World do not allow prostitution solicitations and aggressively removes offenders from the property. On a Tuesday night during October 2013, over 30 prostitutes were observed in the Hotel Lisboa lobby area openly soliciting sex from hotel and casino guests while the security guards watched. At one point some international guests who rented a room were literally being physically chased by prostitutes around the public lobby area and out into the Macau city street offering aggressively “sex massage” directly in view of the private hotel Lisboa security guards. Engaging in sex with prostitutes is very dangerous for various reasons mainly sexually transmitted diseases.
At one point during the busy part of a Tuesday night, approximately 30 males were standing outside of the Casino entrance watching the prostitutes walk by. It is similar to a public market except sex is for sale not fruit and vegetables. The males stood there and watched the girls walk by, When a male wanted to make a purchased he would motion at the woman and she would walk over. They would negotiate the details of the sale such as the price and time of sexual services. Then the prostitute tales the male up into a room that she had rented in the Hotel Lisboa to perform the services. The entire solicitation of sex for money was taking place in direct view of the hotel Lisboa security guards who were standing no more than 10 feet away.

This is how the prostitution solicitation is being allowed to continue on mass. The hotel management knows that the prostitution solicitation are openly taking place and chooses not to stop it.
