The Red Light District is one of those locations which is really a must see for those who enjoy seeing true differences in culture. An evening stroll through the district is certainly an eye opener.
As a woman heading to the red light district, I was interested in discovering how many other woman would be there and how they would be treated. There are plenty of women around the red light district- some in all female groups and others with their partners. First off, the red light district is definitely aimed towards men.
It’s pretty well organized and looked very decent 😉
The women who meant serious business were standing like dolls standing behind the see through windows (call it a parlor or booth) and waiting for their clients wearing skimpy clothes..
The booths and interior were always lit with dim red light may be that how the place got it name..No brainer isn’t it 😉
That was literally a crowd pleaser. The seduction, magnetism and charisma of the women inside made sure there was no one walking with straight head 😉
The women working in this area (in the windows, bars, shows) are definitely more concerned with lone single men in groups. Overall, the area was friendly.
We did walk to see so many cafes around, some more than 100 years old. It was incredible to walk through. There are sex shops and places where you can see a live sex show along the street also, and these are actually fun to go into and let your wild imagination run free!
As a woman who was nervous about it first but glad we went later, I recommend the live sex shows – especially the one at Moulin Rouge where we had been. The place wasn’t just filled with scary men like I thought it would be, but normal people, many couples. The show itself isn’t really sexy and it certainly won’t turn you on – it’s quite scripted and mechanical really – but was fun to see and I had a good laugh.
It was quite sad to watch all these little girls very beautiful to sit there like plants, completely stoned with lost personalities.
It really is different to the real world. Not seedy at all and definitely worth a stroll through, especially at night with the canals all light up. . Definitely something to see once in your life.
Certainly its one of the major Amsterdam Tourist attractions!
