Mary, a sex worker employed at one of Amsterdam’s infamous red-light windows, views the decision by city authorities to relocate their office outside the center as more than an administrative burden; it represents an existential threat against her livelihood and freedom as women who work in professions which remain illegal in many countries, including her native Escort Amsterdam.
As part of a plan to “de-stigmatize” their work and protect clients from overtourism, she and other sex workers in the Red Light District are being asked to adopt new identities as part of an initiative designed to “de-stigmatize” it and protect clients. Many are taking up this offer and moving out, while some remain because doing what they love requires constant work in one area or another.
Most visitors to De Wallen are male; although some couples also visit. Since the girls do not advertise their services, men often simply walk along the streets looking at lit-up windows before knocking on doors of prospective girls and discussing what will be done and at what price. Most prostitutes offer oral sex for male clients while some can also perform fellatio. Most use condoms.
Some of these girls are managed by pimps who specialize in business side of their trade; most deny having one. Pimps often work their girls along racial lines knowing sexual stereotypes appeal to certain superficial male clients; many girls themselves may be victims of human trafficking brought into Holland via rings of pimps for sale in Red Light District.
Traffickers sometimes treat girls like slaves; forcing them to consume drugs or physically abuse them before taking away their passports or social security numbers so that they cannot report this exploitation to police. Therefore, it is critical that consumers know which escort services in Amsterdam are ethical and reliable.
Passion Escorts will match you with an appropriate girl and ensure a safe environment so you can enjoy yourself without worry or distraction.
High class Hotel Escort Amsterdam tend to be educated and articulate. These professionals are frequently hired by businessmen or other high-profile clients at social events or business trips, or provide companionship or sexual services for an additional fee.
Sex workers tend to have various interests outside their job as well, from cooking, art or sports to keeping up-to-date on technology trends and fashion – or traveling!
Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands and workers pay taxes and belong to unions; thus it would be easy to assume there’s no issue of human trafficking here; women operating independently in Amsterdam’s Red Light District could simply be independent entrepreneurs doing their thing – however that may not always be true as some women may be forced by pimps to continue working despite being asked by them or forced into continuing by pimps to stay on the street and don’t want them leaving anytime soon.
