Can you buy a prostitute in Red Dead Redemption 2?

A look at whether or not you can get frisky with the ladies in Red Dead Redemption 2.

While playing through Red Dead Redemption 2, you may find yourself wondering whether or not you can buy a prostitute. As you travel from town to town in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll inevitably encounter an array of “working girls.” One reason for this stems from the game’s Wild West setting. During the 1800s, prostitutes and Madams were quite commonplace, especially in large towns with a lot of foot traffic.

Wondering if there’s a way to hire these ladies in Red Dead Redemption 2? You’ve come to the right place! Below, you’ll find the answer to your question as to whether you can actually buy a prostitute in Red Dead Redemption 2!

The quick answer to the question of whether you can hire a prostitute in Red Dead Redemption 2 is no, you can’t. In Red Dead Redemption 2, prostitutes can often be found hanging around saloons and hotels. The services offered by these establishments include buying drinks and food, visiting the barber, using the bath, and renting a room. Unfortunately, “hire a prostitute” isn’t an available option.

You can make small talk with the ladies by focusing on them and selecting the “greet” option. However, this doesn’t open up an opportunity to pay for their services. Don’t be too disappointed, though. Arthur Morgan can still get a little action by paying for a Deluxe Bath. To do this, visit your nearest town and find a hotel.

In the hotel’s services menu, select the option to take a bath. Next, walk into the room with the bath as indicated by the bath icon on your map. This will prompt Arthur to enter the tub. You can manually scrub Arthur’s arms and legs, and while you work on getting him clean, the game will open up the option to purchase a Deluxe Bath.

What is a Deluxe Bath? In a nutshell, rather than taking the time to wash Arthur yourself, you can elect to hire a woman to come in and help Arthur out. While Arthur won’t be able to take her to bed (aka hire her services), it’s a pleasant experience that should help satiate your desire to cozy up to the ladies in Red Dead Redemption 2.

In the future, the option to buy a prostitute may become available in Red Dead Online once that aspect of the game opens up later in November, especially if the feature is highly requested.
