Sex Shows

Sex Palace

Most people know the Red Light district in Amsterdam for its window prostitutes. But, walking through it, there seem to be just as many sex shows, peep shows, and sex clubs as actual prostitutes. And as you walk by, the “bouncers” at the doors call out to entice you inside, just like some sort of Moroccan spice market… “Mademoiselle!  Live sex?”

I was tempted to go inside, but also reluctant to fork over €45 to watch something that I can do myself for free in the comfort of my own home. But a friend of mind told me she went to a sex show with her boyfriend in Amsterdam (I swear to God, it wasn’t me) and they were pretty disappointed.

About Home Strange Home

I first left the US in 1999, when I was 18 years old. Since then, I’ve spent 13 years living abroad - 3 in Canada, 7 in Europe, and 3 in Africa. Now I've finally returned to the US on a one-way plane ticket. I arrived home in late January 2014 and set foot in the US for the first time in nearly 2.5 years. In Home Strange Home, I blog about the ups and downs of my re-acculturation experience.
