Quoting Mel.

But Gerrykhong, I think u will find both fat and thin prostitutes, in the Netherlands, willing to sell u their services, so if UK is short of slim hookers, then no problem, because u will find plenty of them in the Red Light District in Amsterdam. ;)

mel. why that wink at the end?

Some people get judgmental about subjects like drugs and sex for sale, so I thought a winky would be a good precaution, to show that I am not speaking from that point of view. But I suppose u are asking this, because winking, while taking about sex can also mean something else, which I did not take into consideration when I was putting the winky there. And probably the text u deleted, from the post before this one was an explanation about what the winky could mean, when done, while talking about sex???? I suppose a smiley would not be appropriate, at the end of this post either????

just out of interest. in what way was it an eye-opener? if I may ask?

Well, I wasn't used to seeing prostitutes on display in the glass windows, so yeah, it took a while for the set-up to sink in.

i think, while its not for me, if you wanna be a prostitute, amsterdam is the place to do it. its regulated, its much safer than picking up a chick on the street, and they actually make alot of money. money isnt everything i know, but some of these chicks are paying off student loans n stuff like that... do what u gotta do eh? some of em just like sex. might as well get paid for it!

i think that there is so much more to a'dam than the RLD.... and the coffeeshops, and ive met many a dumbarse tourist whos spent the whole time there completely stoned ogiling women in the windows. a total waste, but then again someone like that isnt really that smart anyway and wouldnt appreciate the other things amsterdam has to offer.

i say, go n have a look, go to abar, see a sex show n have a laugh but make sure its not the only thing you do...........

Coming from new york, which is pretty liberal as far as america goes, i was definitely in awe of the RLD and amsterdam in general. I gotta say though, its a beautiful city, as far as archetecture and the general scenescape. it had a pretty cool vibe. When i was in RLD though i mostly just walked around just peoplewatching, and ignoring the glass door girls slamming on the glass and pointing at me. i was terrified lol. but y'know, it was very cool to see a place and a culture so different that mine own. i loved the experience, though most of the time i was just keeping my head on a swivel. the first night with no place to stay i slept on some bench somewhere, and it was no big deal, except it was uncomfortable as hell. the whole city wakes up and goes to sleep so late, I was like "they run on my time!!" hahaha

as far as the morality goes... i have varying opinions but i just don't see it any purpose to express them. They do what they do, i do what i do, and life is lived. i would definitely say go, just for the experience, and the beauty in the cultural diversity and experience. I loved every minute of it.
