Bali Girls and the P4P Scene
Prostitution is illegal in Indonesia, just as it is with most Southeast Asian countries, and it is largely ignored, just as it is with most Southeast Asian countries.
You’ll notice that massage shops are popular and dotted around the island but, unlike Pattaya and similar Thailand tourist hot-spots, the majority of Bali massage girls will not offer the extra services that Thai girls are famous for.
‘Bule’, as Caucasian men are referred to in Indonesia, get a lot of female attention. They are considered exotic and adventurous, and the girls love that on:

That’s not to say that such things don’t exist, they do, but you’ll probably need a taxi driver to take you to one of the backstreet happy-ending parlours.
The cheapest P4P option is to focus on freelance working-girls. Any local lady in a tourist venue that is dressed up is going to be very approachable, so I’d go for that option first if you are on a budget. You’ll have to do some haggling over price though, otherwise you’ll end up over-paying (whilst I’m on that subject, get used to haggling over prices for most things, it’s the Bali way).
If you take up with a freelance working-girl, it’s a good idea to avoid drinking too much or you might risk waking up the next day with all your valuables missing.
I’d recommend that you stick to short-term relationships if it’s a freelance Bali girl that you are entertaining i.e. avoid letting her sleepover so as to protect your belongings.
Bali isn't all about mega-clubs and youngsters, there's refinery too!
The online scene is a better romantic option than the P4P scene in Bali;
if it’s hookers that you want then I’d advise heading somewhere else
for your holidays e.g. Thailand, Philippines or Cambodia. The online
girls in Bali are sweet, and most are keen to meet up with western men.

It’s not just about Bali girls...
There is a fairly well developed scene for foreign ladies to meet up with Balinese men for some naughty fun, but for the ladies reading this please be aware that the same dangers apply that gentlemen face when getting a little too attached to their Asian bar-girl partners i.e. it’s fantasy land and romantic attachment will likely lead to heartbreak, humiliation and financial ruin.
That said, I see no reason why foreign ladies shouldn’t be allowed to enjoy their dalliances with Balinese men so long as they can keep their bullshit antennae intact.
Requests for funds will surely follow at some point if a relationship is allowed to go too far, so keep that in mind.
On my main page about Indonesian women I did state that living costs in Bali are very cheap; that’s true but I was literally referring to ‘living’ costs.
The nightlife and tourist stuff is, unfortunately, not so cheap.
The usual problem with alcohol prices is ever present in a Muslim country (even though Bali is predominantly Hindu), but they are particularly high in the tourist parts of the island.
While it is possible to find places where you can drink local ‘Bintang’ beer for well below $2, the prices for imported beers in the mega-clubs and trendy bars are much higher, with cocktails at $10 or more, and it is inside these venues that you are more likely to meet Bali girls for romantic P4P adventures… so keep an eye on costs.
