What is the red light district in amsterdam?
a red light district, anywhere, is where there are a lot of cat houses. Where all the hookers hang out and work. In Amsterdam, prostitution is legal, and very regulated, and the red light district (I wound up there, quite by accident, mind you, but it was very interesting), is like a group of streets that are lined by these shops. Each one has a huge picture window, and behind the window, sits a prostitute, in scanty garb and all, and you, I guess, negotiate the purchase of some time directly with her, through the window (I think there’s like a ticket window set up…don’t really remember) and then go upstairs and meet with her to do the nasty. The girls are all insured and clean and have very regular checkups to make sure they haven’t contracted any communicable diseases, and I guess it’s much better than in other countries. I understand prostitution is legal and regulated in Vienna as well, though that may have changed since the last time it interested me.
