The 10 Sexiest Things You Can Do in New Orleans

From the infamous red light Storyville days to the New Orleans we know and love today, the Crescent City is one of the steamiest cities in the country (which might partially explain all the humidity). So if you’re looking to get a little naughty in the Big Easy, here are some of your best bets...


Get oysters and Champagne

Lüke (address and info)
Louisiana is flush with bivalves, which in turn will make you flush, seeing as they’ve long been known as a natural aphrodisiac. Oyster specials (and even free oysters!) abound here, though we recommend getting in the mood by popping a bottle of bubbly to go with your raw oysters during happy hour at Lüke.

Check out Drag Brunch

The Country Club (address and info)
The first and third Saturdays of each month, you’ll find one hell of a brunch at The Country Club, featuring not just bottomless mimosas, but also a spectacular drag performance.

Take a dip in a rooftop pool

Hotel Monteleone (address and info)
French Quarter
The Hotel Monteleone might be more well known for the famous Carousel Bar and also for inventing the Vieux Carre cocktail (as well as being the annual host and home base for Tales of the Cocktail each year). What you might not know, however, is that the Monteleone also houses one of the sexiest rooftop pools in town. And when it heats up in the Crescent City, a pool is the place to cool down and spy a little flesh. 

Have yourself a Voodoo Massage

The Ritz-Carlton (address and info)
French Quarter
Why just get the regular old spa experience when you can infuse your pampering  with Voodoo? Over at the Ritz-Carlton, you’ll find the official “Marie Laveau Voodoo Love Bath and Massage,” which incorporates music, lighting, “voodoo love oil,” and other amenities to get your mojo working.

The AllWays Lounge & Theatre (address and info)
Some of the best burlesque in the city can be found over in the Marigny at this classic performance, an experience that's not just sexy, but fun and edgy (and often quite weird) to boot. This, friends, is the cutting edge of burlesque, with performers coming in from all over the country.

Standing also at the forefront when it comes to burlesque in NOLA is the infamous Trixie Minx, whose excellent, classic show you can find at Irvin Mayfield’s Jazz Playhouse.

Enjoy some Naked Sushi

The Penthouse Club (address and info)
Sushi is pretty great on its own. But you know what makes eating sushi even better? Eating sushi from the unclothed bodies of top-flight dancers at the Penthouse Club, which happens every year over the holidays. 

French Quarter
It is the biggest swingers convention in a city long known for sin. We’ll just leave that right there for you and let you imagine the rest.

Colette Lounge

Get involved in a swingers club...

Colette Swingers Club (address and info)
French Quarter
Are you part of the “lifestyle"? Well, if that’s the case, Colette is known to be one of the finer swingers clubs in the Big Sleazy. From “Wicked Wednesdays” to “Newbie Night,” “Glow parties,” “Stockings and Stilettos,” and, naturally, “Pantiless Fridays,” Colette always promises a sexy good time, if you have the courage to indulge.

... or two

Jasmine Private Club (address and info)
French Quarter
Colette isn’t the only game in town when it comes to exploring all things that swing. Jasmine has a reputation for its special events, including pajama parties, sexy corset parties, lingerie parties, and other things that should definitely get your motor running.
