Meet the Fokkens - Better than applying for goverment aid I guess

"In the old days, the local copper would tap on the window if a girl was showing too much ankle, now the girls deal coke from their cubicles." Louise and Martine Fokkens are identical twins. For over 40 years they were working as prostitutes. They freed themselves from the control of their pimps, ran their own brothel, and set up the first informal trade union for prostitutes. They are familiar faces in Amsterdam's Red Light District, but soon they will bid their farewells.

Meet the Fokkens is a portrait these women, as well as a history of the Red Light District over the past fifty years

Today would be the day he got even with his nanny. Although it was not her, for she had past many years before, nigel never reconciled with the way he was treated as a boy. he signaled to the beast of a woman and entered her door....

  • You go girls! America has such a sick religiously repressed attitude about prostitution. Europe is soo much more mature and realistic on the subject. Amsterdam used to be a great place. I don't know how it is now.
