What is a Termas?

In Brazil the Portuguese word Termas litterally means Spa, but it refers to a legal club or facility where Garotas de programa operate. A termas is a combination spa/health club/massage facility/bar/brothel!

How does a Termas Work?


Normally after paying your entrance fee at a reception desk you will receive a locker key. Then proceed to a locker room to change into a robe and to lockup your clothes and personal effects. You can also shower/sauna and in some places even freshen up with disposable toothbrushes and razors that are provided. Your locker key is very important, besides locking up your clothes in a locker it also acts as a "credit card" inside of the termas to purchase drinks, massages, garotas de programa, etc. so keep track of your key at all times.

  • There are a few termas where you stay in your street clothes.
  • Some termas have a bad habit of providing a girl to help you change, usually these are the worst girls and it is best to ditch them as soon as possible. See below about ditching.


Termas usually have a bar (Boite Pronounced: Bo ar- chi), a sauna, and other amenities such as TVs with football or telenovelas (soap operas) playing. There is a common room like a lounge where you meet the garotas de programa for selection. When you first enter the area where the girls are, you might want to walk around awhile and check the talent out before taking a seat. If you see someone you want to check out closer, just say hi and ask if she wants a drink. If you sit down when you enter, you’re likely to be trapped by one of the more aggressive girls, these girls use this tactic because they’ll get no takers otherwise.

They have rooms ranging from a basic bed to luxury suites with jacuzzis. Some rooms are included in the basic price and only charge for suite upgrades, but some termas have a charge for even a basic room. In some termas a suite is just a basic room with a private shower, so you should check before upgrading.

Choosing a Girl

Ditching a Girl

Some first timers can get trapped by an overly aggressive girl. If you get trapped by a girl you’re not interested in, head off for a shower or sauna, or tell her you’re looking for a specific girl you’ve been with before (you can claim you’ve forgotten her name). You can also get up and go to the bathroom, when you come back stand at the bar for a while. If she comes back and tries to grab you again, just say you want to relax a bit or keep moving, a moving target is hard to hit, move around.

  • It is more difficult if you have already groped her, hence try to be a little distant until you know there is going to be a good chance of going to a room.
