Brazilian Women: The Secrets of Seduction They Don’t Tell You

Updated: November 12, 2018

Let me ask you a question: are there any women on this planet that are more well known than Brazilian women? Ask almost anyone around the world and chances are that person will at least know what you’re talking about.

Brazilian women along with maybe Russian women are some of the most popular women on the planet. Virtually everyone on this planet has heard of Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, and the yearly carnival that happens there.

I spent a total of seven years living all over Latin America. Brazil was the country where I spent the longest by far: three years.

Geographically, Brazil is located in South America, but it doesn’t take long to realize that the country, its culture, and the people are almost like on another planet.

In this guide, I want to introduce you to Brazil that I know, its culture and people. When taken as a whole, all of it would greatly enhance your chances of connecting with the Brazilian woman of your dreams


Brazil is the largest country in Latin America and borders every single country on the continent except Chile and Ecuador. It’s also the fifth largest country in the world.

Brazil was conquered by Portuguese explorers lead by Pedro Álvares Cabral in the 15th and 16th century.

In the 20th century, Brazil experienced huge waves of immigration. As a result, Brazil is many ways like America, a melting pot of different nationalities.

Lots of the Brazilians have Portuguese, Italian, German, and even Ukrainian ancestry.


The official language in Brazil is Portuguese—not Spanish, as everyone mistakenly thinks. Portuguese and Spanish are about 90% similar, so if you speak Spanish, you should be able to pick up Portuguese fairly quickly.

When I arrived, I only knew one word in Portuguese. Fortunately, I had already spoken pretty fluent Spanish.

It took me about 3 months to get fairly decent at Portuguese and another 3 months to become fairly fluent. After a year or so, I was able to converse with everyone and speak pretty decently. I didn’t have any problems understanding anything and even watched television shows with problems.

If you don’t already speak a similar Latin language like Spanish, Italian or French, give yourself at least six months to learn and become proficient in Portuguese. Since you’re in the country, you should be able to learn it fairly rapidly.

English isn’t as widely spoken as you might imagine. Although it’s spoken by people in the hospitality industry: hotels, restaurants, tours, etc. It’s generally not spoken by regular people who have regular jobs.

I know for a fact that my life in Brazil would’ve been entirely different had I only stuck to English instead of trying to learn Portuguese. Brazil is such an exotic and amazing country that speaking only in English simply doesn’t do the country justice.

My recommendation is to learn Portuguese. That will give you the best experience for living in the country. However, if you, for some reason you can’t, then English or Spanish is the next best choice.

The women

OK, so we’re finally getting to the important bits: the women. Brazilian women are famous around the world for a few things. In general, they don’t need much introduction. They’re beautiful, sexy and have beautiful butts that make other women jealous. They wear very revealing bathing suits to the beach that many call “dental floss” or “fio dental” in Portuguese.

My favorite part about them is the fact that they just exude sexuality that other women—like the super feminine Ukrainian woman—can’t come close. Don’t get me wrong, Ukrainian women are sexy, but they definitely lack the sexuality of Brazilian women.

Here’s the thing, a typical woman from Brazil isn’t usually the most attractive woman if judging strictly by the face. Most of them don’t exactly have supermodel looks, but when viewed as the complete package, they just exude immense sexuality that just turns you on like no other woman can or will.

This is something that I’ve discussed with my friends. And all of them agree that there’s just something magical about Brazilian women that almost all the other women just lack.

For instance, Eastern European women are absolutely gorgeous to the point of being mistaken for models, but because of the closed culture (Soviet Union) and colder climates, they just don’t exude the same level of sexuality as their Latin American—and especially—Brazilian counterparts.

I actually prefer that. If given the choice, I would definitely choose a super sexy woman that turns me on compared to a woman with a beautiful face but lacking charisma. What’s the point of amazing looks when the woman looks charisma and doesn’t feel too comfortable in her environment? 

Of course, many guys might indeed prefer a gorgeous girl even if she doesn’t exude super sexy charisma, but I’m one of those guys who really values the overall package: looks, personality, sexiness, charisma, sex, etc.

When viewed from this perspective, Brazilian women are simply unbeatable.

Are Brazilian women easy?

There’s a certain stereotype world over that Brazilian women are super easy. The reason for this stereotype is because foreigners are constantly inundated with images of Brazilian women wearing skimpy clothing, dancing, and their overall sensuality is automatically translated into being easy.

All of that is false. In fact, Brazilian women are, for the most part, fairly traditional. I say “for the most part” because there’s also a geographical factor. Typically, women from the Northern parts of Brazil (Bahia, Recife, Amazonas) are typically “easier” than women south of Rio de Janeiro (São Paolo, Curitiba, Porto Alegre).

In Rio de Janeiro, women are also fairly traditional, so it pays to follow the typical 3-day rule. 

As you go more South, women become more European (both in looks and mentality) so things like one-night stands are typically out of the question.

Of course, I’m not saying that one-night stands don’t happen; they do and they happen more often than not, but I definitely wouldn’t bet on flying into Rio de Janeiro for a weekend, meeting a girl and then bringing her back to your place.

The chance of that happening is pretty slim. My advice is to plan for a minimum of two weeks, a month is even better, but two weeks should suffice.

That would give you enough to meet the girl of your dreams, wine and dine her and seduce her.

What’s it like dating Brazilian women

The dating game plan

Brazilian dating culture is all about the 3-day rule.

After meeting her and getting her contact info, the first date should be something like a nice lounge with good drinks somewhere. This is where you’re going to spit your game and get the all-important kiss (see below).

On the second date, you can keep it super casual by doing some daytime activity such as going to the beach, shopping in one of the large shopping malls or just going for a walk in the city.

By then, it should be well established that you both like each other, so there’s no need to try hard for kissing or anything like that.

The kiss

Brazil is the only country in the world that I know where you can kiss a woman within 10-15 minutes after getting to know her. Of course, some exceptions do apply and that’s assuming she’s actually enjoying your company. 

But if you’ve been talking to each other for a while and you notice that she’s enjoying your company, then don’t be afraid to go for that kiss.

On the other hand, since kissing happens so quick, it generally doesn’t mean much and is not an indicator that you’re going to get laid soon. It simply means that you’re no longer will be friends and maybe something more.

Brazilian women are used to Brazilian guys trying to kiss them within the first 15 minutes of establishing chemistry (which happens very quickly after the first meet).

If you don’t kiss her soon enough, she might think you’re not interested — or worse off — you’re weird in some way.

This is something you should keep in mind when trying to get to know the woman.

Your goal should be to build comfort

Once you get the kiss and it has been established that both of you like each other, your objective should be to build comfort.

Don’t rush into sex, but also don’t shy away from being physical and aggressive. Save the serious make outs for the bedroom; there’s no need to get super heavy on the beach or in another public place. 

On the third date, you can suggest to meet up in your place for some wine or have a couple of beers in a bar nearby your place. This will help with logistics in order to get her back to your place for some late night fun.

The rules of the game

Be confident and aggressive

Brazilian guys can be extremely confident and aggressive when pursuing the women they desire. A Brazilian guy doesn’t need to get wasted and see double before approaching the woman he wants. Once they find a woman attractive, they go over there and approach her.

It’s that simple.

This means that Brazilian women are very used to guys approaching them directly without the indirect games that people play in the West. A Brazilian woman is entirely comfortable with getting approached by a strange man on the street, in a store, in a restaurant, a coffee shop or even the beach.

She’s not going to “freak out” like a woman in a Western country (USA, Canada) where guys are timider and don’t really approach women.

Be direct

This brings on to the next point: be direct. When approaching a Brazilian woman, don’t beat around the bush. Don’t play indirect games. Don’t ask for “directions” (unless you really mean it). 

Once you find a woman you like, simply come over, tell her that you noticed her walking or sitting, that you found her attractive and then ask her if she’d like to meet up one day.

Brazilian women appreciate a man who wants something and aren’t afraid to get it. Thus, they will be direct in return. If she likes you, she’ll let you know immediately. And, if she doesn’t, she’ll tell you the same.

Unlike American women, they’ll never shame you or make fun of you or your approach.

No asshole behavior

Don’t be an asshole to women. Don’t use the so-called “asshole game” when trying to communicate with women that’s very common with American women.

Respect the women. Don’t play any stupid games, don’t insult them, and don’t treat them like shit. Be nice but also aggressive (don’t be a nice guy).

Brazilian women don’t think highly of men who look down at them and don’t respect them.

If she isn’t responding well to your advances, then she probably isn’t attracted to you. In this case, you should just stop pursuing her and find another woman.

Speak Portuguese

I’m not going to beat around the bush, but if you want to really connect with beautiful women in their own country, you have to do it in their own language. That means learning Portuguese.

Of course, some English is spoken in the major cities. In Rio de Janeiro, some of the richer and better-educated women will speak at least some English. The same for more educated women in a city like São Paolo. Additionally, women who have spent some time in the US or the UK will also speak some English.

But there are two problems with relying only on English. First, you will limit yourself to the women who speak English. That means limiting yourself to women who have lived in the West or, at least, women who have been heavily exposed to a Western country.

That means you can forget all about regular, middle-class Brazilian women who don’t speak a word of English. That’s missing out on a huge opportunity.

Second of all, it doesn’t matter which country you’re in, but trying to connect with people in some third-party language (e.g., English) instead of in their own is always problematic. When I lived in Brazil, I made an effort to learn Portuguese. After learning it, my ability to connect with women skyrocketed. It really made ALL the difference. I can never imagine living (or visiting) Brazil and not being able to speak Portuguese.

So, my suggestion is that you must absolutely learn Portuguese for best results. Or, at least make a solid effort of at least trying to.

The gringo factor

There’s one important factor I want to mention before discussing how dating works: the gringo factor. Being a foreigner means you’ll automatically have a different experience dating local women than a local man. Not better or worse—just different. That’s just part of the game so you have to accept it.

First of all, my experience has shown that there are two kinds of women: those who only date Brazilian men and those who are open to dating both kinds of men. I’ve also met women who only date gringos, but those have been relatively rare.

The other thing you have to realize is that Brazilian men can generally get away with a lot more than gringos. What I mean when I say that is that a Brazilian man can be super aggressive with a woman in a bar, and the woman will accept this behavior (she’ll just shrug it off as a “Brazilian thing.”)

On the other hand, a gringo doesn’t have that freedom. A gringo can’t simply be super aggressive because the woman will not accept such behavior: she might think to herself, “Who the hell does this gringo think he is? Does he really think we’re that easy?”

Thus, some Brazilian women won’t be as comfortable when gringos behave aggressively but not when Brazilian guys do the same.

Of course, that might not be the case, but because of the gringo stereotype, there’s always a risk a woman will think that.

The point I’m trying to make is that you need to be careful with your behavior and can’t just do the same thing Brazilian guys do. Even if you have a great game, you might get a completely different reaction from the woman you’re pursuing.

Meeting women

How to meet women during the day

I can’t name a single country where it’s easier to meet women during the day than in Brazil. Brazilian women are completely comfortable being approached during the day; Brazilian guys do it all the time—everywhere.

In fact, a good way to learn about local dating customs is by observing Brazilian guys. Brazilian guys are confident. But they also don’t really need to get drunk in order to approach women. All they do is look in the direction of the woman they like, get up, go over and initiate a conversation.

They also don’t care about rejection. So, if the girl declines, they move on to another woman. There are so many of them, so being rejected by one woman is never an issue.

Whenever you see a woman that you like, simply approach her and ask her how she’s doing.

In Brazil, everything is very simple, so you don’t need any fancy lines or elaborate approaches, you just need to come over and open your mouth. Once you do that, she’ll know exactly what you’re up to, so there will be no misunderstandings and awkward moments.

Where to meet women during the day

The fact that it’s so easy to meet women means that entire cities are your playgrounds. You can approach women pretty much anywhere. When I lived there, I approached women in coffee shops, restaurants, gyms, beaches, juice bars, and pretty much anywhere I saw a cute woman.

This is something that you really can’t do as much in European countries because the women are on-guard and aren’t very comfortable with being approached by strangers on the street (you can blame the new media for scaremongering people).

Nightlife: how to meet women at night

Like anywhere else in the world, meeting women at night is also a great strategy. When I lived in Brazil, I went out 3-4 days a week and never had a problem meeting women.

In Rio de Janeiro, where I spent the bulk of my time, nightlife works in peculiar ways. Being a beach city, the whole life revolves around the beach. On weekdays, the beaches aren’t as packed, but during summer months, the beaches are absolutely packed on weekends.

This means that instead of partying hard on Friday or Saturday nights, people typically party until around 1-2am and then head home. That’s because they want to wake up earlier the next day (Saturday or Sunday) and spend their day at the beach.

That’s completely different from your typical nightlife scene in most cities around the world where people party until the wee hours of early morning.

So, if you’re in Rio, this is something you should take into account: the nightlife isn’t great—but still doable—although the good news is that you should have no problems meeting women during the day pretty much anywhere.

Meeting women online

There’s another time-tested method of meeting women: online.

The usual suspects come into play such as Tinder and an entire assortment of other online apps.

In Brazil, Tinder works very differently than in other parts of the world. It’s extremely easy to match women and meet them, so you don’t need to try very hard. I used the same strategy that’s described here.

When I visited Brazil and began using Tinder, I immediately had a ton of matches, so getting dates was never a problem.

On the other hand, this is a really good site for meeting high quality Brazilian women.

What about Carnival?

A lot of people think that Carnival is some kind of an orgy fest where everyone is having sex with everyone else.

Actually, that’s not true at all. Carnival is just one big party, something that Brazil is accustomed to as a country. Thus, it’s not necessarily about sex or anything like that.

For more information, read my other article about whether it’s worth it to visit the Brazilian Carnival.

To sum it up

  • Learn Portuguese. Your options expand greatly when you’re at least conversational in Portuguese. Girls know that you’re not a fly-by-night tourist and, instead, see you as someone who’s at least somewhat dedicated to the country.
  • Be aggressive. Brazil is one probably one of the most aggressive dating cultures I’ve ever experienced. Girls are completely fine when guys approach them out of the blue and ask them out. Brazilian guys are super aggressive as well and don’t really need to see twice (be drunk) before approaching a woman they like.
  • Be in shape. Whether you’re in Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, São Paolo or Salvador, you’ll notice a common theme: both men and women are always striving to be in shape. Especially in a city like Rio, with its great beach, it’s important to at least not to be fat. Being overweight will be a disadvantage when it comes to dating (come to think of it, I can’t think of one country where it will be much of an advantage)
  • Be patient. It’s fairly rare for Brazilian women to sleep on the first date. Although it does happen from time to time, it’s much more common on the second or third date. Of course, you can try to take her home on the first date, but don’t be disappointed if she rebuffs your advances and you end up needing a few more dates to seal the deal. That’s completely normal.
  • Don’t be a jerk. Being a jerk as a tool for generating attraction has its place in certain cultures (USA, Canada, and other Western countries), but it has no place in Latin America and Brazil. Brazilian guys are aggressive but always respectful. None of that “nice guy” stuff, but also none of that disrespect that you might notice in the West.
  • Have a well-balanced life. More than anything, it’s important to have a well-balanced life. Don’t just focus 100% of your time on the women, but develop other hobbies like BJJ, surfing, or something else. No woman wants you to devote 100% of your time to her. She wants you to pursue your goals and enjoy the ride. When I lived in Brazil, I had lots of friends, trained BJJ and worked out. The women were the icing on the cake. It worked out really well this way.
  • Finally, go out and meet Brazilian Women.

Where to stay in Brazil

One thing you must understand about Brazil is that each major city and state are like a country within and are very different from other countries and cities.

During my sojourn in Brazil, I mostly stayed in Rio de Janeiro. I first thought that the rest of Brazil is exactly like Rio de Janeiro. Then, as I was getting ready to leave Brazil, I went and lived in two other cities: Belo Horizonte and São Paolo.

Rio de Janeiro is a city that doesn’t need much of an introduction. Everyone knows what the city is like and what to expect. It’s one of the most exotic cities in the world. Not only there are great beaches to relax on, but you also have the historic downtown area and even museums if that happens to be your thing.

One thing you have to keep in mind is that Rio de Janeiro isn’t exactly the safest city out there, and can be downright dangerous. When I lived there, I would never leave my house with anything I was willing to lose. That meant not going outside with my expensive smartphone, a watch, and a wallet with lots of money.

Here’s some solid advice: dress like a local, don’t act like a tourist, don’t stand out and you should be ok.

Belo Horizonte is only eight hours north of Rio but is an entirely different city. There’s no beach. The people are very different; the look and act differently. They even speak with a different accent.

Additionally, as I wrote above: Rio de Janeiro doesn’t have the best nightlife in the world because the people are eager to hit the beach in the morning. 

Well, Belo Horizonte doesn’t have that problem because it doesn’t have a beach. When I went out there, I typically partied until 4-5 in the morning, something that wasn’t possible in Rio de Janeiro. So, if you love nightlife, you won’t be disappointed.

São Paolo is one of the largest cities in the world and has pretty much everything that you may desire. There are tons of different neighborhoods with awesome attractions: cafes, restaurants, lounges, nightclubs, etc.

There’s even a beach that’s only one hour away in a neighboring city called Santos.

I spent a couple of months in São Paolo and quite enjoyed it. While it isn’t as exotic as Rio de Janeiro, it’s definitely more sophisticated and cultured. The people are more cultured as well. While it’s not a super safe city, I felt it was somewhat safer than Rio de Janeiro.

When to visit

Brazil is a hot and tropical country most of the year, so no matter where you go, you’re probably not going to need to pack a lot of winter clothes.

For instance, in Rio de Janeiro, it’s scorching hot pretty much all year except the winter months of June-August. When I stayed there, the lowest the temperatures ever got was around 15 C (60 F), and that didn’t last very long.

By September, the temperatures start to rise up again and it’s back up to the typical 30C (86 F) in no time.

The further south you go, the more you will experience regular seasons. In Southern Brazil, it gets fairly cold and even snows in the mountains.

Honestly, if you’re heading down to Rio de Janeiro, I wouldn’t worry about the perfect time to visit because it’s pretty the same weather year-round.

Unlike Europe with its dreary and freezing winters, Brazil is an awesome country to visit pretty much year-round.

The food

Brazilian food is diverse and rich. Not only there are bazillion different juices, with most of them not available anywhere else, but you also have delicious and savoring meats.

Brazil is well known for having amazing BBQ meat. In fact, Brazilians prepare it in their own special way, one that’s completely different from American BBQ (or other country’s).

It’s so delicious that when I lived in Brazil, I couldn’t resist having it almost every day at different eateries.

Brazil’s national dish is called feijoada. It consists of rice, beans, and pieces of meat. It’s super filling and healthy, so if you’re on a tight budget, you will have no issues staying fed and healthy.

Final thoughts

Brazil is truly a special place. It’s easily one of my favorite countries in the world, and one that I think about all the time.

Despite it being a rather dangerous place, Rio de Janeiro is easily one of my favorite cities in the world. There’s just no way around it, it’s super exotic with a beautiful beach, super friendly people, great food and amazing women.

Some people say that Brazil is overrated, but I personally think that if you haven’t visited Brazil, you really haven’t lived.

Have a fantastic time and don’t forget to let me know what you think.

  1. Finally a nice, down to earth & so correct post about carioca’s :))) . You’ll see that after spending time here the Leblon/Ipanema girls will be approachable as you’ll mingle in better & are able to get rid of the gringo status. I’m living here for about the same time as you, love every single day of it, but had to adapt my approach to women & thoughts I had about Brazilian women before coming over here. Keep up the good writing/work 🙂

      Appreciate the nice words, and the feedback!

      I lived in Rio for a few years, and it’s an awesome place with it’s own pros/cons. Having been out of Brazil (which I consider its own continent) for a while now, I now have some new realizations which probably deserve a post of its own.

      • respected dear:
        my name is afzaal ilyas i am from pakistan i also like travelling to different country and i am student of software engineering. but i have no lots of money to travell another country and you help me in this situation and i work in different country.

      • Wow! I’m from L.A. From all my conversations with several stunning girls I found via Tinder plus, you are so dead on with all I have gathered. Insane the consistency. One girl who I think I like more than I should told me after I told her “I hope I impress you when we meet” said “no worry, just be a fun guy.” I was shocked because she is the most gorgeous girl I’ve seen in my life. So much different and in my opinion better than the States. I need to make my first trip. All I think about are Brazilian girls now. I also want to learn Portuguese. The books in front of me right now! Thanks again for extra pointers. They help a ton to understand the psyche and difference!!!

    • This will teach you all you need to know. A bit unethical but it works good 🙂

    • Stop to say women from north and northeast are easy. That’s another stereotype typical from people that have no idea about whatt happens in Brazil. Rio De Janeiro everybody knows many women are easier and dream about to get a foreigner . I know cos I know people from the south and southeast, I have been in Rio many times and they are more easier that any women in Brazil. So what u are saying about women at north and northeast its insane . Plus, give us a bad reputation . its not fair to us. I can say to you u need to researanymore. Our ancestry at northeast include Africans, Dutch, British and so on. The idea about women be more or less easier than others its a extremely offensive and a stupid thing. So be careful about what u says or spend more three years learning about Brazilians women.

  2. Nice tips and many have reasons to react to gringos the way they do. I agree that speaking Portuguese can be more harmful than helpful. I have plans to visit Ipanema later this year.

  3. you are so funny,dude.i wanna go there for vacation for 15 days so this process will take there any shortcut for me to hang around?thx…..

    eu sou brasileiro e voces estam entrando no caminho certo.mas acho que falta um pouco!

  5. Hahahah I liked 5 last part..boa!

  6. Lol, interesting… I think you got it right in most parts. Being a Brazilian girl who has dated a few foreigners (specially Americans) and who knows US culture very well, I can give you a female perspective of the tips you gave here. I agree with everything you said except for the when you mention guys should go for a kiss after 15-20 min of conversation, coming from a “gringo” that attitude would look odd, we know that you guys wouldn’t do that with american girls, why would you think you can do it here? Got it? That can ruin everything. Wait for the right moment to kiss the girl. That might take the whole night/afternoon / whaterever… but definitely kiss her before the night ends 😉

    • i’ll wait for alexa for the whole afternoon…whole night…whole week and month…whole year…….and my whole life..

    • I’ve seen gringos do it within 15-20 mins of talking to a woman. However, there comes a point where the woman is waiting to be kissed. Takes a while of being in Brazil to “feel” that moment though 🙂

    • ” but definitely kiss her before the night ends” – I couldn’t agree more. Being a Brazilian girl living in the US, it really annoys me that a guy spends 3 hours of “trying to impress me” conversation, very little flirting, and goes for a good bye kiss.
      Don’t be afraid! 😉

  7. Time is not an issue for me. Decent tips but the Tan part, that does not apply to people of color nor does dressing properly. I am deciding between Brazil/Argentina or Central/Eastern/Northern Europe for LTR Only. This was helpful but only just, decent blog though.

  8. I read that you were most of your time in Rio. I was living up in the North East of Brazil for a year, in Recife, and found it a lot less expensive than Rio. Also it seemed much easier for Brazil dating. The main reason for this is that I found the beaches at Rio were mainly filled with tourists, as opposed to the beaches in the North East Brazil which were full of local Brazil Girls, and not many tourists from Europe.
    I actually arranged my visit through the RomanticoBrazil website, although I did have a lady to stay with that I met on-line. I would say that the North East is definately the best area of Brazil for Brazilian dating.

    • what website would you recommend to meet a Brazilian girl online and it not be some rip off just to get $50 bucks w/o real girls being on there.. which one did you use?

      • In US u can find lots of brazilian girls at “plenty of fish” or “ok cupid”. They are 99% living in US for long or short time. All my brazilian girl friends are there.

    • For sure.
      I’m from Salvador! I can tell.. 😀

  9. Hi all, my name is Marcelo, im from Chile, i’m the kind of guy who has not too much sexual, dating or hanging-out experience with girls, im 21 now, i met a girl from Brazil in internet, and what the article says is true, but except for the fact that i cant do anything from the webcam haha. Well, im a bit worried about the posibilities to date girls around 18 – 25, because i’ll be around 23 when i get money for travel and meet this beautiful country and the expected friendly people. Also there is a fact that i look older than my real age (27 sometimes), so that’s why i ask about that range age of brazilian girls (18 – 25). Another thing is that Chilean girls are a more cold, they dont hang.out too much, chilean girls just kiss once or fell in love, and they are a bit more hypocrites in relationships. Well, i’ll like to know the age of you guys, overall of the writer of this article, to know how to get a very nice experience even if a to old to date this kind of girls. Thank you very much, and sorry for my english, i’m still trying to improve it (not google translator used). See ya!

  10. If you’re a normal foreigner looking for a decent girl just try to be honestly yourself. In general a Brazilian man suits better a Brazilian girl mainly because of the natural mutual understanding, however the human being factor should be the most important asset. A man can sense the responsiveness of a woman, no matter where.

  11. Great advice. I’ve been living in Rio for a while and your advice is spot on.

  12. Easier said than done 🙂

  13. Marcelo…reading your post, I don’t think the ‘age thing’ that you mention is going to be a problem for you. It sounds like you will be at a perfect age for Dating by the time that you go. It you want to look at some of the Recife girls, that I mentioned above, before you go, go here, like I did, to [spam deleted]
    I am about ‘double your age’… but usually, you will find, that Brazil woman (un-like European ones) don’t mind men that are quite a bit long as they can support themselves…i.e…Have some money and a job !

  14. ell, as a Brazilian (carioca) lady, I would like to say about being aggressive and move fast will be only welcome if the guy are very confident that we really liked him and we had strong physical attraction because I if we are not ready yet, that quick move can spoil the whole date. Brazilian like long talks..long intelligent conversation before any touch. Unless is a soft touch 🙂 If you guys love the Brazilian ladies and the culture, please check my website Please read the Terms of use before you get your free trial with no commitment with the web..but with the girls! they are all waiting for a serious single gentlemen who knows how to treat a woman like a lady, how should always be 🙂 Good luck!

  15. This seems ridiculous…!! I’m from Rio and like, 10% of that is true. Sure, we are chill but not all girlies over here are like that. There are A LOT of weirdos and less popular (or whatevs) people. Idek, lol

  16. Yeah, kisses doesn’t mean anything there!
    Dentists even tests their patients’ saliva with a wet kiss before anything else!

    • “A kiss doesn’t signify intimacy in Brazil, but kissing quickly is normal and is part of the mating ritual.”

      That was ridiculous to read, thus my bf’s comment above mine. (Yeah, kisses doesn’t mean anything there!
      Dentists even tests their patients’ saliva with a wet kiss before anything else!)

      I’m a brazilian woman, and if I’m talking to a guy and he simple decides to kiss me after no matter what time without telling me, I would slap him. And not just because I have a boyfriend!

      It’s easy to mistake interest, because, I admit, brazilians are more “open” to talk and touch while talking, unlike other people around the world, but that doesn’t mean we expect kisses or even that kisses don’t mean intimacy. They may not mean a compromise, but intimacy is another thing entirely!

      I would be more carefull if I were you! I was offended by that, and am sure other women would be too!

      • You sound like someone who would be offended by a lot of things. Girls don’t want a guy to ask before he kisses them, no girl is turned on by that. Also if you are slapping guys for trying to kiss you then you clearly have attitude problems.

        • so you see a girl and start kissing her?

          • Usually not, unless it’s in a club and I can tell from the way she looks at me she wants to kiss. Communication is over 75% non-verbal, so you don’t need to ask someone to know if they want to kiss. A man can naturally escalate to a kiss without ever mentioning kissing. Women much prefer a man who can escalate naturally and never asks permission.

      • I guess you are from a place in Brazil called jungle?

        I am from Austria and kissed a lot of Brazilian women who visited Vienna and never had a single slap from them.

        That is called attraction, we don’t kiss someone that doesn’t attracts us!

        You need to take shower and piss off with your boyfriend, you are ruining the true Brazilian image.

        • I am also a brazilian girl. So, for you to know, most of us hate to be threaten like sexual objects made for kissing and having sex and fun. Most of the girls you’ve kissed were probably desperate hoes looking for gringos or brazilian men in the bars of the city. If I met a man and, after half an hour of talk, he kissed me, I’d slap him too. We, brazilian women, know very well of what we’re talking about. So we’re not ruining the “true brazilian image”. You are, by saying that most of us kiss the first guy we meet. That is so not nice, so please stop.

          • “Most of the girls you’ve kissed were probably desperate hoes looking for gringos or brazilian men in the bars of the city.”

            Why do you have such hate towards other Brazilian women? You don’t even know them.

            That’s not a very attractive trait.

        • In Brazil to kiss the face (not mouth) is common when you are being introduced to a girl. To kiss girls at mouth depends the place and your nonverbal communication. Inside a party for example is more easy to meet people open to kiss, in a restaurant the people are not thinking that. But for all rules always has exception, there is not a 100%. Other example in carnival week you dont need to talk to much, but it’s my point of view (brazilian man). About gringo approach (except kiss) I think is correct.

      • what rubbish is this

      • Dear, i just read your comment…and let me tell you…its not good on anybody’s part to make any statement on brazilian girls or in that case any girl from any country……. give respect ….get respect……..Tc

        • Exactly, Rahul… no brazilian girl (except for those who actually like acting & want to act like hoes) would be happy after reading that thing of the kiss after 15-20 minutes of talk. As you can see, lots of brazilian girls who read this right here got pissed off, including me. That confirms well what I’m saying.

          Oh, and for James up there: as a brazilian girl, I believe I know well the usual behavior of many people in my country, as you probably know when it comes to yours. I’m pretty sure of what I said, haha. Don’t contradict people who know what they’re talking about, dude…

          That’s not a very attractive trait.

  17. ” slowly go for a kiss after fifteen or twenty minutes of conversation. ” lie this -.-” …..
    nt believe this… this post is fake …tsc tsc

  18. Maverick, dearest, you just forgot to say that these girls you’ve just mentioned are only available in Copacabana at night, and they do charge you! Not to mention that some of them are not even girls (in case you hadn’t noticed when you kissed them in the first 15min.)!!!

    Regular Brazilian girls NEVER fall for sexist assholes like yourself and your followers.

    Cheers mate!

    You failed to tell men that cohabiting in Brazil with a women that a man is held accountable to alimony should the two part.

    You also failed to mention that all the stereotypes about Brazil women being whores of all economic levels are true.

    If you don’t have the ability to get with an American woman than develop yourself. Brazilian women have been taught that their primary assest is ass or beauty of some sort. They expect that American men are rich, which you typically are as most of these people are extremely poor and ignorant.

  20. Thats cool and real, man. Im brazilian from Sao Paulo and the same rule is here. For the first time I read an article who keeps respect and TRUTH about what it takes to have a chance on us.
    Thanks for posting

  21. I met, for the first time in my life, a Brazilian girl in the USA in 1999. We’ve been talking for a few months over the Internet before we met in person and kissed after the first 15 min or so. This girl is my wife for 15 years already! 🙂 Love is life!

  22. woww! I really liked what you wrote about us!!!
    thanks! =)

  23. If a Brazilian chick admires you already then you only just need to say your name and where you come from ,and she will do the rest for you , all you need to do is to be available and open for her to feel free about kissing you and doing what ever she likes so long you are willing ..
    Women are like shoes made for men to wear but definitely every pair or shoes dont fit every man ,so men should go in for their right sizes ,same thing applies with women too .

  24. Nice post, i’m brazilian and i didn’t gree with one topic… if a brazilian or foreigner man (but seems worse from foreigners) try to kiss me after 20 min of talking it will be very nasty…:(

  25. Great stuff, Maverick. I’ve been following you for years and I must say this information is spot on. Remember now: Brazilian women MUST be feminine because most of Brazil is a sex paradise for men. Literally, American guys go down there to bang the pros without speaking 1 word of Portuguese. When you have lots of options, it makes you very picky. Thus, why Brazilian women love direct men. There’s so many options that she doesn’t want to play game. The cards are stacked in your favor.

    I won’t go into the dating scene in the USA and UK because it’s such a joke. I rather not discuss it anyway. Brazil is the best country for men in the western hemisphere. However, you need to use common sense as well. I’ve seen lots of gringos end up in bad situations (including myself) due to lack of cultural understanding and just plain foolishness.

    That’s why I wrote a book on everything you need to know before you visit Rio de Janeiro. Brazil is pretty big but I still think Rio is the best city in the country.

    Check out my book called Rio de Janeiro for Beginners. It’s available for sale on Amazon.

    I wrote the book after spending 1 year living in Brazil. There’s a lot of good information online but I think you will benefit from reading my book. If Maverick is interested in reading it, I can hook you up with a copy for free.

    Thanks again for the great blog and I’m looking forward to your commentary on Eastern Europe. I got a friend who fell in love with a Russian girl last year and he’s been begging me to go there. I’m still on the fence, but would like to hear your thoughts about Russia. Thanks Maverick!

  26. Keep in mind when people in these articles say Brazilian girls they mean brown girls; generally mulatas, pardas, and light skin Portuguese females. Do not think you will go to Brazil and land a blonde blue eyed girl. Also, the far south of the country RS/SC/PR is basically a different country from Rio, and this area is White-Brazil. They are more like Argies than Cariocas.

    In any SA country the White girls are generally off limits. If going to Porto Alegre splurge and hire a Gaucha escort.

  27. I am in Brazil now and it doesn’t seem like a good description.
    Lets say that the majority of Brazilian girls are not beautiful or even cute. Many have bad faces, LOTS of fat girls. I would say the average girl is not more attractive than an American girl and definitely much less attractive than Colombian. Maybe in clubs the situation is better, but on the streets you are lucky if you see an attractive girl in an hour.

    They do play games, a lot. Lots of flaking, lots of lies.

    Every hot girl in Brazil has lots of hungry men after her, so she is not gonna feel like you are a catch. She is a catch and she knows it.

    of course, this is my experience and this is mostly about Sao Paulo, but saying “Brazil is sex paradise for men” is complete bullshit.

  28. vocês estão indo no caminho certo mas falta só mas um pouco , espero que vocês consigam

  29. hi i will like to meet a Brazilian girl and get married

  30. I am a brazilian woman and I need to correct you:WE LOVEE HAVING DINNER IN FANCY RESTAURANTS!!!!

    • Exactly.

      I think when I visit Brazil, I am just going to go with the flow. I would love to meet and make friends, but it will be what it will be.

      I prefer the finer things in life and that includes nice restaurants.

      The thing is, in my eyes, you are either lucky or not.

  31. First of all I am a brazilian woman (from the North) and I have to tell that I loved what you wrote! I was just curious about how north americans and the european people see the brazilian women, so I started to research… I have to confess that it made me quite sick.
    I’ve born in a big family in a very poor place of my city (Belem do Para). My parents had no money to pay a good school for me and my brothers and sisters. But ever since I was a kid I always liked to study english and to know about different cultures. Brazilian people knows how expensive is to study foreigns languages in Brazil. Therefore, I started to study it for myself. I am 31 years old now and I speak english and spanish fluently based on my own curiosity and talent. When I started to study english I was only 11 and I never thought that would like to find a “gringo” and leave Brazil.
    The brazilian women are not just about sexy. We are romantic in a high level, we are not searching for a rich man, we are educated and classy, we like to take care of our man, but we are also love to be independent. Yes, we love to dance and take care of our body because it where our soul live. We are spiritual beings and we are conscious about our worth.
    So, before you stereotype the “brazilian women” get to know Brazil first. And, please, never ever judge place, people or whatever it is based in what you read on internet.

  32. So what if you are not a gringo, but from the UK, born in New Zealand, with Portuguese, English, Kiwi and Jewish blood, look like a Portuguese person yet speaks perfect English?.

    So what then?.lol.

    Personally, no one can really tell you how to get the perfect woman. I look at Brazilian ladies and think, wow, I wish.

    Even though I am 38, look in my mid 20’s apparently, I still do not think I would ever get the dream Brazilian lady I would love to settle down and have a family with.

    Your advice may work for gringo’s, but reality is, you would be exceedingly lucky to get the woman of your dreams, whether that is in Brazil, UK, America, wherever.

    Good luck though, I am off to Mangue Seco region for 3 weeks holiday. Yeah, it would be amazing to meet the lady of my dreams, but it will be whatever.

    The problem is, that unfortunately, the English and Yanks have given the west a bad name in Brazil. Even though I do not look like a gringo, I have a totally English accent. So God alone knows what they will think of me when I visit.

    All I know is, Brazil looks like a beautiful country with its beautiful people. Looking forward to the beaches, chilling out and who knows, maybe I will meet my dream lass walking along the beach. But I am not going to go out of my way to find it, or it will ruin my holiday, in it.

  33. hi i want to visit rio need local girls company

  34. i love sex i am a soccer player

  35. I’ve been traveling back and forth to Brazil, most of the times to RJ, for the last 15 years. Im not Brazilian but have a few Cariocan girlfriends.

    Original author gets some things right but it greatly depends on if you’re after a short fling or a serious relationship. Tips from the original article apply to the former but definitely not to the latter.

    From experience, serious Cariocas from good upbringings that you can look into establish a relationship, will slap you straight on if you move as aggressive as trying to mouth kiss after chatting 15min…

    Obviously you need to establish a connection, and that can take anywhere from 2-5 dates to happen.

    Also, not speaking Portuguese is a MAJOR handicap…

  36. Rio de Janeiro, summer, sun, wonderful beaches, tiny bathing suits, fit bodies, big smiles and a hell of a temper. That’s the idea you might have about Brazilian women, right?

    So you think you know Brazilian women? Well, you have been WRONG all this time. Listen to what my mother taught me.
    How do I know that? I’ve been living with a Brazilian women for almost 33 years now: my mother. And I must tell you that being an American citizen with a Brazilian mother and a British father is like a PhD course in human relationships. Very few men in this world had the chance to experience the temper of Brazilian women in such deep ways and here is what I learned.

    First of all – Brazilian women hate being treated as a cliché. Never forget this! Brazilian women are well aware of their reputation around the globe and they don’t like to be stigmatized. Neither because of their bodies, nor because of their temper. So, if you are interested in Brazilian women, put your prejudices behind.

    There is not enough space for all this here. I have a blog at . Updated one or twize a week.

  37. Hello James,

    I love this article, I really do. I am one of your most loyal readers (I am following you for years) and you were one of the people who inspired me to take blogging and writing seriously.

    I want to thank you for that. This is one of the articles that inspired me the most. I couldn’t do anything but write down my own experiences with Brazilian women.

    What started as a simple idea for a blog post resulted in an in-depth guide about Brazilian women, the dating culture and the dating dynamics.

    I would really appreciate if you would take a couple of minutes to check out the Brazilian dating guide that I wrote and to maybe give me some feedback:

    All I want to say is that you and your lifestyle inspired me to also do everything in my power to turn my blog into my own personal Me Inc and to live a nomadic lifestyle.

    If you ever want me to write a guest article for you, I’d be more than honored.

  38. This short read was awesome! This is the nomadic lifestyle I want to live and hopefully learn your ways. Any more to come?

  39. Just a tip: if any of you guys try to do any of what is saying in this damm list the greatest thing you’ll get here in brazil is a hello to the cops in the police station and/or a kick on the balls and/or a slap in the face.
    oh, and ther eis always the canc eof a great laugh.

  40. I´m not sure if I agree with “be agressive”. In any situation is better to use your “feeling”. Girls are not the same.

  41. Hello James,

    Really nice advices, that is for sure. I am a Portuguese that goes to Rio to work in the IT business (don’t know for how many years), and I consider myself a little bit nerdy (I guess my field of works does that to people), and therefore a little bit shy, so I was wondering if you happen to good dating websites, just to explore that option first?

    Thanks James

  42. Dude, You cannot teach a Wolf plays on circus, at the end they’ll seeking for a bad lonely Wolf.
    Brazilian way. Just joke, keep advertising the newbies.

  43. I am a Brazilian woman living abroad for over a year and a half and dating European men have been a complete different thing, I must agree: I’ve dated guys that took 2 dates to kiss me and would take days to ask me again after long hours of online talking. In Brazil, it is true: that wouldn’t work. We like when someone demonstrates interest and we hate games.

    But kissing after meeting and after just 15 minutes is absurd 🙂
    Just talk to the girl for a few hours (which is basically time for a good conversation, getting the feeling if you guys would work and a meal) and if you like the girl, she would be very welcome to be kissed by you. 15 minutes is NOT OKAY.

    I am from Bangladesh and almost 14 years i was in aboard like Oman, UAE & Qatar for job purpose. Now I am in Bangladesh and working in foreign company as a Manager Admin & Commercial.

So, please any one invite me to go any country in the world for traveling or job purpose. With regards

  45. I lived in Brazil for 3 yrs Sao Paulo. I was lucky enough to have found her on Yahoo personal or she found me rather. She spoke good enough English so I didn’t really learn their language. I lived the nomadic lifestyle. She was a lawyer but to have something to do I gave English speaking classes. I went back to the States and she came with a year later and became an American citizen. I did learn some Portuguese like how to say “mais uma cerveja por favor garcon”. 🙂

    I wish I could skype with you for a brief convo on some specific pointers for these girls! How much? I want to leave no stone unturned.

  47. great write up, not the easiest ones to get into bed but if you can do it then it will be well worth your time

  48. As a brazilian
    If u dont fuck the girl in the same day u meet her..
    U are a looser in brazil…

  49. Stop to say women from north and northeast are easy. That’s another stereotype typical from people that have no idea about whatt happens in Brazil. Rio De Janeiro everybody knows many women are easier and dream about to get a foreigner . I know cos I know people from the south and southeast, I have been in Rio many times and they are more easier that any women in Brazil. So what u are saying about women at north and northeast its insane . Plus, give us a bad reputation . its not fair to us. I can say to you u need to researanymore. Our ancestry at northeast include Africans, Dutch, British and so on. The idea about women be more or less easier than others its a extremely offensive and a stupid thing. So be careful about what u says or spend more three years learning about Brazilians women.

  50. Como vi que você aprendeu português não vou nem passar vergonha com meu inglês.
    Quero dizer que eu gostei de ler o que você escreveu sobre nós (mulheres brasileiras) e essa receita de bolo não tem erro para nos conquistar. Agora para manter uma brasileira ou levá-la para o seu país se aventurar com um rapaz, vai ser necessário um esforço maior e isso acho que você já deve saber.
    Eu estou no Canadá e meu sonho era ler um artigo neste nivel sobre o homem canadense, pois para mim tem sido um desafio decifra-lo hahahha. Um super abraço!
