Light camra sex
Today, prostitutes in the Netherlands are also taxpayers.
Unfortunately, discrimination is still a part of this trade as many prostitutes report that some banks refuse to grant mortgages for example.
That's why prostitutes in Amsterdam stand up behind a window and have their own room.
The name of "Red Light District" comes from the red neon lights that highlight the 300 windows where women are working.
The atmosphere pretty much thrives until around 2 or 3am when the crowds die down and businesses shut up shop.
The Amsterdam Red Light District is not only about prostitution and coffee shops.
You can find a great variety of sex shops, peep shows, strip clubs, sex theaters and typical Dutch brown cafes.
Furthermore, you have a few cultural activities such as the Museum of Prostitution, the Museum of Erotism or the Museum of Cannabis.

However, now as a legal profession, the government ensures that all prostitutes are able to access medical care and work in better conditions by regulating and monitoring working practices and standards.
Help is also at hand in the district itself thanks to the Prostitution Information Center.
Amsterdam has three different Red Light Districts but the most famous and the most attractive is the one located inside the city center.
Since October 2000, window prostitutes have been allowed to legally offer their services.
