Risa
The pleasure planet mentioned or featured in several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. In particular it was featured in the episode ʺCaptain’s Holidayʺ.

Atlantis
Just fits the theme, eh?

Westworld
scifi vacation park

Pern Sound
Pern – Planet, with dragons. And, Anne McCaffrey

Zeltros
Star Wars has the Zeltrons, a species devoted to nothing but sex and pleasure. Accordingly their homeworld, Zeltros, is a pleasure planet.

New Mogo
Named after the Lantern planet; that is a Green Lantern. Mogo.

Psychlo
To the Psychlo species, returning home to their homeworld was the ultimate goal. Away from all the horrid colours and back to the quiet, purple-hazed life they live in luxury.

Cameron Bay
Cameron is in reference to James Cameron, creator of Pandora and the Avatar films

Anarres
From Ursula Le Guin – Dispossessed

Hyperion
From Dan Simmon’s novel of the same name. Backwater planet where pilgrims trek to seek final atonement.

Magathea
Douglas Adams Magrathea will build planets specifically tailored for you. Want a planet made out of solid gold? What about one where everything’s made of jello? The pebbles on the beaches are all precious jewels?

Argellius II
The name of the planet in the orginal series of Star Trek where some of the Enterprise crew had shore leave. The planet is described (in wikipedia) as a planet with a Middle-Eastern cultural influence primarily dedicated to peaceful hedonism.

The Moon
In the TV series Futurama, the Moon is the site of an amusement park that is a tourist attraction. Fry really wanted to go there but the other people of the future working at Planet Express were rather jaded about going there. It seems as if, for them, it was no longer a place they were that bothered about going to any more.

Sihnon
In the TV series Firefly Sihnon is where Inara was taught the skills to become a Companion.

Fhloston Paradise
Fhloston Paradise was the name of the resort hotel/ship where Corbin Dallas/Leeloo went in 5th Element and got to see the Diva sing

Cytherea
The 1980 Flash Gordon movie had Princess Aura try to tempt Flash into joining her for a tryst on her personal pleasure moon, Cytherea. “Cytherean” is a somewhat archaic adjective describing matters concerning Aphrodite, namely sex and pleasure (hence the name of the moon).

Jhazzalan
The home planet of those furry astronauts from Earth Girls Are Easy

New Vegas
Babylon 5, The Mars city New Vegas is very heavily implied to be such a place, right down to the name

Carillon
The original Battlestar Galactica (Classic) featured the casino resort world of Carillon, which turned out to be a way to keep the alien workers of the Green Rocks mines on the same planet supplied with Soylent Green foodstuffs.

Planet Midnight
Season 4 of the new series episode 10 of doctor who , the doctor and donna go to a Leisure tourist planet called ʺMidnightʺ

Evening Star

Olyesti
A Main city on the planet Gallifrey is very much loved and adored

Kooken’s Pleasure Pit
Battletech: Kooken’s Pleasure Pit is a world with a robust rest and relaxation industry. The planet was noted for entertainment industries and pleasant climate, but having poor mineral wealth.

Canopus
A bit more like “Pleasure Empire,” but the Magistracy of Canopus in BattleTech is notorious for its pleasure circuses, including but not limited to a variety of sexual fantasies, available for a price. Amusingly, they are also renowned as the premier medical experts of the setting.

Ventura
The DC Universe had the gamblers’ world Ventura and Ragashoon  in the Omega Men story “Of Vice and Virtue”.
