Spoiler Alert: the theme of the Bananenbar is the tropical fruit called the banana. Besides all the beautiful women the banana takes center stage, as a prop, held onto by the performer without using her hands.
At the entrance of the Bananenbar you can choose between two areas: the regular strip club (banana club) area or the classic bananabar area. Choose the classic Banana Bar area if you want to take a bite of a banana whilst its still inserted in a vagina. Interesting times!
Besides bananas the female performers also use their vaginas to sign postcards and do some other unimaginable feats. We would not really recommend this sex show to women.

1 | Distinguish sex work from human trafficking and keep it that way!
Sex work = work. Human trafficking = violence.
2 | Treat sex workers as adult citizens and see them as partners in the fight against human trafficking and other abuses.
3 | Combating violence and improving rights are two goals. That has always been the core of the Dutch prostitution policy against sexual violence. This also applies here.
4 | Check that every policy and measure does not have undesirable negative effects on the safety, health and autonomy of sex workers. Do that together with sex workers.
5 | Break the maximum policy and the barriers between the different forms of sex work. Stimulate and facilitate the personal activity of sex workers, new initiatives and new organisational forms.
6 | Treat self-employed sex workers the same as self-employed persons in other employment sectors.
7 | Use permits for what they are intended for: companies, not for self-employed people.
8 | Make sure that sex workers can choose whether they want to work at / for a company, or as an independent freelancer, whether or not in collaboration with other freelancers.
9 | Restore sex workers’ trust in the government and the police.
10 | Provide accessible and independent conflict resolution and legal assistance in industrial disputes. Without a labor dispute leading to the loss of workplaces or permits.
11 | Make sure that (brothel) operators and sex workers can report human trafficking and exploitation without fear of negative repercussions. Require operators to do what in their power to prevent human trafficking, but do not penalize them if it does occur.
12 | Make sure that sex workers can always and everywhere safely go to the police if they are confronted with violence or exploitation, either by themselves or by fellow sex workers. Without fear of losing their workplace, home or income, or of being forced out.
These 12 rules for a good, working prostitution policy have been developed / supported by the following organisations:

You’ve met a nice person via a dating site. You have been exchanging messages and now it is time for the next step: a first date. How exciting! But of course you don’t want to show that you’re insecure. If you don’t want to appear too nervous, it’s smart to prepare properly for your first date. You don’t want things to get awkward during the date, do you? You just need some good date tips!
This article offers the solution! 10 super useful date tips which you can use in Amsterdam or anywhere else in the world.I WANT A SEX DATE! >
One of the best date tips is to be well prepared. You have already taken the first good step by reading this article.
Make sure you are well rested on day of your first date. You don’t want to take the stress of work or travel with you during the date. You have to stay focused, so rest well.
Also, make sure you pay extra attention to your appearance: take a bath, take a long shower, shave, trim your nails and use some care products like day cream. If you look good you will feel better too. You radiate that and yes, your date will see that too!
Think carefully about which clothes you want to wear. Don’t wear old clothes, choose new, attractive clothes. In addition, it is very important that you wear clothes that you feel comfortable in. Don’t buy clothes for your date, buy clothes that you like.
Clothing tells a lot about your identity, and your date will remember that. If you’re not going to buy new clothes, at least make sure it’s washed and ironed.
Do you want to prepare well for a first date? Then choose a nice location in Amsterdam! A good date location is not the same for everyone. A nice café or restaurant is always good but it’s not a super original idea. It can be noisy and challenging if the talking does not go smoothly. In that case you can also do something together. How about taking a canal cruise? Or you could visit a cinema (if you are a bit shy or nervous), but you can also do something.
Do you like photography? Then you could try the Eye Museum in Amsterdam! Are you a sporty person? Then you could rent some bikes and explore the city, or take a salsa lesson.
Also fun to do during a first date in Amsterdam: Join a Red Light District tour. It’s an original, educational & healthy activity. An additional advantage is that afterwards you have enough to talk about.
Since you’re dating a stranger it might be a good idea to not overdo it. We don’t want to be too negative, but your first date doesn’t have to take the whole day or the whole evening – what if there isn’t a match?
Make your first date nice and short, and agree on this in advance. If it is great fun, you can always decide at that time to spend more time together. By determining the duration in advance, you also control the expectations.
“Good dating advice is not just about tricks or smooth phrases, but about the underlying principles that make you a more attractive person.“
To-do-tip: Visit Pathe Tuchinski in Amsterdam. A beautiful, historical cinema.
Make clear agreements about the location and time in advance. You don’t want to keep waiting at the wrong restaurant, cinema, museum or park.
Also do not make vage appointments like “around 2 pm” or “4-ish”. That might cause discomfort and irritation, so make sure it is crystal clear where and when your date starts.
You don’t want to come across as a stalker, but doing a little research is never wrong. Immerse yourself in the interests and work of your date. This way you know what you can talk about during the date. It also saves discomfort if he or she starts talking about a job or a hobby that you have really never heard of.
One of the better date tips during a first date: Don’t overdo it and bring things smoothly during the date. For example: “On one of your social media pictures, I saw that you were playing tennis. Is this something you often do?” Do not say: “I know you like tennis.” That sounds creepy!
Pre-corona it was normal for men and women in the Netherlands to greet each other with three kisses. That’s quite different as other countries.
Today it is normal to just wave or do an elbow greeting. Greeting someone can be awkward due to miscommunication. So think about the way you are going to greet your date.
Our date tip: announce your choice. Say for example: “Nice to meet you, I’m just going wave because that’s safest!” This will avoid that awkward moment when you may both make different greeting choices.
This is definitely one of the best date tips out there. You’ve already talked to each other via a chat but in real life it may be more difficult to keep a conversation going. Therefore, prepare some questions in advance. Questions about hobbies, travelling, the weather or sports are always good.
Do not about politics on a first date. That is not romantic at all.
Dating tip: Try to ask as many open questions as possible and add your opinion on those answers.
This might sounds weird but make sure you do “number two” at home. This will decrease the chance that this will happen unexpectedly during your date. You would rather avoid such an inconvenience, right?
One of the most important date tips to remember. It probably won’t be a successful date if you forget the name of your date. It’s important to remember! You don’t want look like a dumb-ass, right?
Date Tip: when greeting each other, repeat that persons name and ask where the name comes from. Or just repeat the name and say you like it. By doing so you give a compliment and you remember the name better.
Remember, you’re on a date – not a job interview. Relax! You are here together to explore each other. If you like the other person, show it by flirting: Listen carefully, smile, give compliments and look each other into the eyes.I WANT A SEX DATE! >

The Netherlands distinguishes hard drugs and soft drugs. This is done in the Dutch Opium Act. The sale of soft drugs in Amsterdam coffeeshops is tolerated in the Netherlands under strict conditions.
Because soft drugs (cannabis and magic truffles) are less harmful to health than hard drugs (XTC, cocaine, etc), different rules apply in the Netherlands. Amsterdam coffeeshops can sell cannabis – weed and hash – under strict conditions to locals and tourists. Coffeeshops are businesses where weed and hashish may be offered for sale. They will not prosecuted for this. This is the essence of the Dutch tolerance policy (Dutch: gedogen beleid).
The Dutch Public Prosecution Service also does not prosecute persons if they possess small amounts of soft drugs. It is about this:
The Bulldog is one of the first cannabis shops in the Netherlands.
For the sale of weed and hash, Amsterdam coffeeshops must adhere to rules and laws (the tolerance criteria). A coffeeshop must follow these 9 cannabis laws:
Coffeeshop Rusland is Amsterdam’s second oldest cannabis store.
The sale of soft drugs remains a criminal offence in the Netherlands. Do Amsterdam coffeeshop owners not adhere to the conditions? Then they can be prosecuted and the mayor can (temporarily) close the coffeeshop. Municipalities can impose additional requirements on a coffeeshop to prevent inconvenience. For example, adjusted opening hours or a greater distance from schools.
The cultivation of cannabis plants is prohibited in the Netherlands. With a maximum of 5 plants for personal use, the Dutch police will only confiscate the plants. The police can prosecute the grower if there are more than 5 plants.
Coffeeshop Grey Area is known as one of the best coffeeshops in Amsterdam.
Is the police prosecuting the grower? Then the police will prepare an official report for the criminal prosecution by the Public Prosecution Service.
Hemp growers can lose their rented house. Did they illegally tap electricity? Then an additional assessment follows from an energy company. In tackling cannabis cultivation, the Dutch police works together with housing cooperatives, the tax authorities and energy companies, among others.

When visiting a city it is important to know what you really have to see. After all, you don’t want to miss the highlights and have a bad travel experience, do you? It’s even more annoying when your friends have seen something special in Amsterdam that you have missed. We have the solution! Here is an overview with 15x must see in Amsterdam Red Light District.
First of all, some basic information: De Wallen – the Dutch name for the Amsterdam’s Red Light District – is the oldest and most fascinating part of Holland’s capital. And, it’s one of the three prostitution areas in the capital. The other two are located on the Ruysdaelkade and the Singel and the Spuistraat.
The Dutch liberal and open-minded culture can be seen everywhere in the Red Light District. Only here you can see a church that’s surrounded by window brothels with sex workers, cannabis shops, residential houses and a 5d porn cinema with a daycare next door.
This list contains 15 must see in Amsterdam Red Light District items that everyone will like. Whether you’re into architecture, art, Dutch culture, history, religion, food or (erotic) entertainment. There’s really something for everyone. It’s not without reason that more than 4000 people from different parts of society live in this part of town.
There are only two places in the world where there are statues for sex workers and one of them is in the middle of Amsterdam’s Red Light District – just next to The Old Church. The Dutch are quite tolerant and open-minded. Just two reasons why you can find this sex worker statue here, right in the old city centre.
During our Amsterdam Red Light District Tours our local guides tell more about this wonderful statue.
On one of the oldest streets in the capital you can find the oldest house. Funny thing is is that this house was only discovered to be the oldest house back in 2010. The old house with a wooden skeleton dates back to 1485 but stands hidden behind a facade dating back to 1800. Before this discovery the wooden house at the Begijnhof was considered to be the oldest house in Amsterdam. The funny thing is that Amsterdam’s oldest house is currently functioning as a gay-club named Dirty Dicks. During our Amsterdam Red Light District tour we’ll pass by this house!
Amsterdam has its very own little Chinatown. It was first established in the year 1911 and is the oldest Chinese neighbourhood on European soil. Since the year 2000 the area has had a Fo Guang Shan He Hua Tempel which is the largest Chinese style religious building in Europe. You can visit this temple for free!
Besides this highlight this is the place you want to be for asian food. All types of Asian restaurants can be found in this area including Thai, Indonesian, Japanese and Malaysian food.
Food lovers pay attention. This is the most iconic snack-bar in the Netherlands. Walk on in and pull a deep fried snack from the automatique. Try out local delicacies like the kroket – a breaded deep fried cow or veal meat ragout which is super crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside.
Or try the Frikandel, a minced meat deep fried snack that can be covered in a sauce of your liking. Tip: try it with mayonaise, curry and unions.
The CEO of the FEBO chain talks about this typical Dutch food in our app Amsterdam Audio Tours.
Ever wondered what a brothel looks like from the inside? The Red Light Secrets museum is actually a repurposed former brothel. Inside you get to see the many different luxurious rooms. You even get the option to sit in a Red Light District window brothel. Try and find out if any of the passer-byes are interested in your flirting-skills.
A hidden church museum right in the middle of Amsterdam’s Red Light District. This church is located in the attic of a completely restored 17th century canal house. This little hidden church is a great symbol of tolerance in Amsterdam. Back in those days celebrating mass was forbidden, but in the case of hidden churches they were tolerated. This museum is a must for those who’d like to see the inside of an old canal house and learn about world famous Dutch tolerance. You can find more information or buy your tickets via the link below:BUY TICKETS >
The 15th century former city gate still stands beautifully at the center of the Nieuwmarkt Square. The building has had many different functions throughout its life. These include being a guild house, a museum, a fire station an anatomical theatre, and currently it’s The Waag Restaurant. Rembrandt even made one of his art works here. The famous painting by Rembrandt called “The anatomical lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulip” shows an anatomical dissection taking place inside The Waag.
The first 5d Porn Cinema in the world! This truly unique experience is a must for those who want to have a laugh. Inside the theatre you take a seat in moving chairs as a 3d porn movie is projected on the screen. The movie is about someone who visits the Red Light District for the first time. A plethora of other effects including wind, foam and water are then added in sync to the pictures on screen. This is a fun ride that you can only experience Amsterdam.BUY TICKETS >
Amsterdam’s oldest building the Old Church stands proudly between the window brothels and coffeeshops. This church dates back to the founding of Amsterdam. The first records of the church come from the year 1213. A lot has happened since then and the church has undergone numerous reconstructions and a switch from Catholicism to protestantism. The wooden ceiling, which is the largest of its type in Europe, is made from Estonian oak and dates back to 1390. Very special!

De Wallen is filled with street art from graffiti to actual bronze items. This bronze plaque was placed secretly at night on the street of the Oudekerksplein.

The first shop in the world completely dedicated to condoms. The idea came to the owners at the start of outbreak of the HIV-Aids epidemic in the 1980’s.

At the time you could already buy condoms at pharmacy but there were too few option, hardly any choice or any good information.

What’s for sale, where to get it, what are the prices and how about the Dutch prostitution laws? This Amsterdam Prostitution Menu has everything you need. The famous window brothels in Amsterdam will be discussed together with more exclusive options like private brothels and escort services.
(Last updated: 22 June 2021)
The Dollebegijnensteeg in the Red Light District.
This Amsterdam Prostitution Menu shows what is generally offered in the Red Light District and beyond. The prostitutes do not work by just one set of rules and do not have one specific menu.
Yes, in the Netherlands prostitution is a legal and a regulated profession. So sex work is also legal in the capital Amsterdam.
Brothels, escorts, homeworkers, window prostitution, etcetera. It’s all legal! As long as the rules, laws and obligations are adhered to. For example: the minimum age to work as a sex worker in Amsterdam Red Light District is 21 years.
So what does the Amsterdam Prostitution Menu looks like? Below you’ll find a very useful overview divided into 4 parts:
✦ Amsterdam Window Brothel Prices
✦ Amsterdam Brothels Prices
✦ Sex Dating Websites
✦ Escorts in Amsterdam
Each part dedicated to their own unique experience and accompanying prices. Please note that this Amsterdam Prostitution Menu shows what is generally offered. It’s wise to discuss everything with the sex worker beforehand and to make clear agreements about the services and additional prices. You can always ask respectfully, if she (or he) is up for the service you’re looking for.
Please check the latest corona measures for sex work in the Netherlands at the website of the Dutch government: Rijksoverheid
The Amsterdam Prostitution Menu starts with explanation on window prostitution.
Window prostitution can be considered as the most accessible form of prostitution. Amsterdam has three Red Light District area’s and around 360 window brothels. The biggest and most famous Red Light District of the Netherlands is locally known as De Wallen. Most tourists talk about this area as Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
This area has currently 201 window brothels and approximately 350 prostitutes who work during the day or night shifts.
The famous street in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
Most prostitutes are from Eastern Europe, but there’s also a big group of sex workers who are from Latin-America. Just a few are actually Dutch. Foreign prostitutes work here because in the Netherlands they can work safely.
Window brothels in Amsterdam can be rented by the prostitutes during the day or the night. So usually there are different sex workers between 10 am & 6 pm than from 7 pm till 5 am.
Learn everything about Amsterdam Red Light District with the Amsterdam Audio Tours App in which 22 experts explain everything you need to know.
The window brothels are set up for a relatively short visit. Generally customers pay between 50 to 80 euro for around 15 to 20 minutes of sex. But if you want, you can also stay longer (30 to 60 minutes). Obviously this cost more.
The sex workers in the window brothels differ in the services that they offer and everything can be negotiated. As long as it is done respectfully. The starting rate for every window prostitute negotiation is usually around 50 euro.
It’s good to know that the window brothels in Amsterdam are quite small. Window brothels are just small rooms with a plastic or leather bed, a washing table, a chair and toilet in the back. It’s nothing fancy like a “normal” brothel. This is also why prices are lower at the window brothels compared to brothels (like Club LV or Club BonTon) that are mentioned below. All window brothels in Amsterdam are clean though.
The big majority (around 95%) of all Amsterdam window prostitutes are female and straight. A smaller part of the window workers are transgender.
The prostitutes who work in the window brothels of Amsterdam accept only cash money. No credit- or debit card payments. One reason that sex workers cannot be paid digitally is because (listed) banks do not want to be associated with sex work and therefore do not facilitate digital payments. The Red Light District has many ATM’S.
The sex workers in Amsterdam’s Red Light District only do safe sex, with a condom. They only accept their own condoms which they often buy at the Condomerie – world’s first condom shop – located on the Warmoesstraat in the Red Light District.
A condom shop in Amsterdam Red Light District.
In the Netherlands it is not mandatory for sex workers to be tested on sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s). Prostitutes are regularly tested on a voluntary basis. They can be tested for free and anonymously by professionals. For example at the Geneeskundige en Gezondheidsdienst Amsterdam (GGD) or at P&G292. In general, the health of the sex workers is good. Prostitutes in the Netherlands know the risks of their profession and take it into account through safe sex and regular STD tests.
Club BonTon is one of the newest erotic venues in Amsterdam. It’s a stripclub and a brothel. The great thing about this chique club is that you can enjoy the atmosphere of a beautiful strip-club and when you see a lady that you really like, you can take her upstairs and have some more fun together in a private room. Not all the girls inside offer these erotic services though.

Also part of the Amsterdam Prostitution Menu are escorts. An escort, is the provision of company by a sex worker with, if desired, sexual acts with the customer. Escorts offer a more expensive form of prostitution that gives the client more privacy. The meeting takes place, for example, at the customer’s home, in the hotel where the customer is staying, or in a hotel proposed by the escort (hotel prostitution).
✦ More discrete/ more privacy
✦ Customised service
✦ More time
✦ Can be combined with dinner, walking, shopping, etc.
✦ More comfortable
✦ More choice
Most escort services in Amsterdam work with a flat hourly rate. This flat rate includes the standard services like regular and oral sex (with protection). The other services that are advertised fall outside of the flat rate and cost extra. These extra services are not guaranteed beforehand and can only be negotiated when the lady has arrived at your place. The lady decides what extras she’s up for and will set the prices then and there.

The Amsterdam mayor will work in a window brothel for one night to learn more about sex work. Many sex workers believe that the current mayor knows too little about sex work and therefore makes serious mistakes that have a negative impact on sex workers in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam’s Oudezijds Achterburgwal.
To learn more about sex work, the mayor of the Dutch capital promised to work in a window brothel for one night. She will do an internship with a sex worker who has 15 years of experience in Amsterdam Red Light District.
‘Hopefully this sex worker can inform me about prostitution so that I can make better decisions. I want to learn everything!’, states the Amsterdam mayor.
Window brothels in the Red Light District.
The Amsterdam mayor has the idea of developing an erotic center outside the Dutch capital. Her idea originated pre-corona. She thinks that prostitutes are responsible for the hustle and bustle in the city center. Sex workers do not want a relocation of the Red Light District nor an erotic center elsewhere. They’re satisfied with their own current workplace in the Amsterdam Red Light District. They actually benefit from many visitors and indicate that prostitution has always taken place in this neighbourhood.
Trompettersteeg. Amsterdam’s most narrow alley.
A common complaint is that decisions are made about sex workers without their involvement. Sex workers also believe that politicians have too little understanding of sex work.
To learn more about one of world’s oldest professions, the Amsterdam mayor will work in a window brothel for one night.
She hopes this will give her a better insight into the life of an Amsterdam window prostitute. The mayor will do a one-night internship and is supervised by April F. – a sex worker who does not want her full name to be published. April F. is also against the idea of creating an erotic center elsewhere.
The project is called a one-night stand and everybody is welcome participate. The more respondents there will be, the more reliable the result. The Amsterdam mayor will be working in a window brothel on the Amsterdam Red Light District famous street in September, 2021.
April F. will buy her necessary items like a leather outfit, new sex toys and a whip. During her nocturnal internship, the mayor will be taught everything about prostitution in Amsterdam. Including how she can best seduce men.
‘I am going to show the Amsterdam mayor that possible nuisance is not caused by sex workers. If the local government want less crowds in this area in the future, the visitors should be spread out by opening more window brothels in the city centre. Preferably in entertainment areas such as the Red Light District, like Rembrandt Square and Leidse Square.’
Sex worker April F. indicates that she did not receive any help at all from the government during her time in the business. She has gained all her knowledge and experience herself, in practice.
The Amsterdam sex worker explains:
‘It is strange that there is an exit program for prostitutes in the Netherlands but not a “how-to-become-a-sex-worker program”. There are plenty of people who want to practice this profession out of free will, but they do not receive any help from the government. Only when they want to step out of business. And that while we’re also registered entrepreneurs who pay tax. Politicians should engage more with sex workers!’
Old Church Square and the Oudezijds Voorburgwal.
Many Amsterdammers think it is a bad idea to open an erotic center outside the city. It would be an unnecessary, unsafe and expensive idea according to most. The idea of the Amsterdam mayor arose because some (new) residents of the Red Light District complained about the number of visitors, pre-corona.
‘If you don’t like busyness, you should not be living in the most visited part of the Netherlands. There are plenty of quiet villages in our country!’, said a local resident.
The Amsterdam mayor hopes to gain popularity and trust through this internship with a sex worker. This makes her the first mayor in the world to do a practical internship in a brothel. In her latest statement, the Amsterdam mayor indicates that she is looking forward to Project One-Night Stand:
‘I’m delighted that April F. wants to educate me. She said that I can cum anytime I want.’

For example Amsterdam’s Royal Palace, the Nieuwe Kerk and the National Monument. Furthermore, Dam Square is surrounded by beautiful buildings of typical Dutch architecture. All of these highlights are fantastic to watch – especially when the sun is out. And what is nicer to see these cultural highlights from a terrace while enjoying a nice drink? This list includes five good bars in Amsterdam Dam Square where this is all possible. Five places in a prime location, in the middle of the city and all easily accessible by taxi, public transport and on foot.
(Last updated: 21 April 2021)

No more than two people are allowed to be seated at one table, sitting 1,5 metres apart from each other. Face-masks are not mandatory on terraces, only inside the venue – when going to the restroom. All new corona measures in Amsterdam can be read on the website of the Dutch government.
On the 28th of April, the evening curfew will also be lifted.
A typical Dutch brown bar.
This bar has a relatively small terrace overlooking Dam Square and it is also not too big from the inside. Nevertheless, this pub always exudes vibrancy, partly due to the beautiful wooden bar. “Gezelligheid” is what we would say in Dutch. Inside it has that old-fashioned look, but with modern amenities – including neat toilets. Also a good place for a first or last drink in town.
Wanna order a beer in Dutch? Just say these four magic words: ‘Mag ik een biertje?’
TIP: Do you rather want to taste real Dutch gin which is called ‘jenever’? Visit the Wijnand Fockink bar around the corner.
The New Church (Nieuwe Kerk) and its cafe on Dam Square.
As the name suggests, this is more of a cafe than a bar. Located on a fantastic location, next to the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) – one of the oldest buildings in the city – with a friendly atmosphere. Most people who visit this place come here for lunch supplemented with a drink. You won’t find many tipsy people here. You can sit here both inside and outside on a terrace where you can enjoy people-watching. Dutch tourists regularly come here to visit an exhibition (such as the World Press Photo) in the Nieuwe Kerk.
TIP: Order coffee with Dutch apple pie or a delicious pancake here. Mind the opening hours which are between 8:30 AM and 6 PM.
“If we can enhance your Dam Square experience in any way, kindly let us know“
That is written on the awnings of this place (originally from 1927), located on the corner of Dam Square and Damstraat. This shows that they find high service very important here. For more than 30 years, Cafe Zwart (Cafe Black) is owned by one of the best catering entrepreneurs in the Netherlands – Won Yip – who also owns other good bars in Amsterdam Dam Square.
The terrace (with heaters) is relatively small, but it has the right, lively atmosphere. At Cafe Zwart they also have very modern and clean toilets which can be used for free.

Amsterdam’s beautiful Damstraat.
Cafe Zwart is a good place to enjoy a good glass of beer or wine after a busy day. It’s a nice spot to celebrate that you are in the most beautiful city in the world. Perhaps this bar is not much visited by Amsterdammers, but there are always many cheerful Dutch and foreign tourists. Here they serve all kinds of European beer such as Bavaria, Palm, La Trappe, Guiness, and whatnot. But you can also go here for wines, cocktails, whiskey, shots and soda. Take into account that the prices are higher here than elsewhere in the city because of the fantastic prime-location.
Euro Pub sits on the corner of the Warmoesstraat.
The Euro Pub is located on the corner of Dam Square and Warmoesstraat (which is part of the Red Light District).

This overview offers accurate and up to date information about escorts in the Netherlands. Definitions, laws, rules, do’s and don’ts, advantages, disadvantages, prices, and much more. Get informed about Amsterdam escorts, prostitution and escort work in other Dutch cities.
An escort service is the provision of company by a sex worker with, if desired, sexual acts with the customer. An escort can be of any gender and can be of any sexual orientation.
Escort is a relatively expensive form of prostitution that offers the client more privacy and discretion. The meeting takes place, for example, at the customer’s home, in the hotel where the customer is staying, in a hotel proposed by the escort (hotel prostitution), in a restaurant, etc. The meeting place can take place almost anywhere.
Escorts don’t just provide sexual services. Sometimes they go to restaurants or on a business trip for a fee to pretend to be a partner of the customer to third parties. This is especially important in cultures where there is a certain social stigma on loneliness. It is also possible that the customer only needs company and not so much sex. Sometimes customers just want to cuddle and talk.
Prostitution is legal as long as it involves voluntary adult sex. In the Netherlands, someone is an adult from the age of 18.
A sex offense that concerns prostitution, however, is Article 248b Criminal Code, which provides:
A person who commits fornication with someone who makes himself available to perform sexual acts with a third party by payment and who has not reached the age of eighteen, is punished with imprisonment not exceeding four years or fine of the fourth category.
Every municipality in the Netherlands has a different policy regarding the regulations for self-employed sex workers. In Amsterdam, for example, one needs a permit when acquiring customers online as an independent sex worker. A number of Dutch municipalities do not require permits for sex workers, such as in Zoetermeer.
Street prostitution is illegal in the Netherlands.
Other terms for escorts are:
✦ Call girl
✦ Sex worker
✦ Lady of pleasure
✦ Escort boy
There are both female and male escorts. Female escorts are mainly booked by heterosexual male clients. And male escorts are mainly booked by gay men.
In the Netherlands, there are very few straight male escorts, as straight women generally don’t pay for sex. And those who do, would like an escort who can fulfil specific erotic fantasies.
In the Netherlands, one can work in the prostitution sector as follows:
✦ Employed as an employee by an operator/ employer who pays wages.
✦ Working as an independent entrepreneur. The escort works for him or herself and there is no third party who has authority over the escort’s activities.
✦ Working in a notional employment relationship for a client (operator) whereby the conditions package is met. This is an intermediate form of self-employment and salaried employment. The conditions package lays down the rights and obligations of the proprietor and the prostitute while the latter is not employed. (Dutch source)
Escorts do not work in window brothels like in the Red Light District of Amsterdam (also known as De Wallen). The windows are used by window prostitutes who are not escort. Meaning, window prostitutes advertise by standing in a window brothel. They do not advertise online, like Amsterdam escorts.AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT PRICES >
Escorts offers their services online (via apps, websites or social media). Eventually they meet at a preferred location. This can be at the escort’s home, in a restaurant, in a club, in a hotel, at the client’s home, or anywhere else.
In the Netherlands, there are no hard figures on the number of sex workers who work from home, but internet sites do provide an indication. Every day 150 sex advertisements appear on various sites throughout the Netherlands for sex work at home or as an escort.
Dutch scientist and sex work expert Sietse Altink claimed that Amsterdam has about 500 sex workers. (source)
She published on her website:
‘Applied to prostitution research, we might conclude that large numbers are more an expression of a discomfort and moral anxiety on the part of the authors than a faithful representation of the empirical reality. (source)
… In addition, there are practical obstacles that prevent an accurate count of the number of sex workers. Some sectors (escort) are more difficult to count than others (windows prostitution). The biggest obstacle, however, is the mobility among sex workers. Both our interviews and our observations show that sex workers change workplace, city or even country very frequently. Mobility is not only geographic, however, but also concerns the prostitution sector and working hours. As a result, it is extremely difficult to determine how many sex workers are working at any given location at any one time.’ (source)
There are quite a few differences between escorts and window prostitutes. Escorts are active almost everywhere in the world. Window prostitutes only in countries where prostitution is legal. In the Netherlands, window prostitution may only take place in window brothels that have a permit for this. All differences are described below:
|Escorts must be at least 18 years old.||Window prostitutes must be >21 years old.|
|Escorts advertise online.||Window prostitutes advertise in windows.|
|Escorts can also be employed.||Window prostitutes work independently.|
|Escorts do not necessarily have to rent a work space.||Window prostitutes rent a window brothel.|
|Escorts usually don’t have security with them.||Window prostitutes get security.|
|Escorts charge higher rates||Window prostitutes charge lower rates|
|Escorts can be of any gender.||Window prostitutes are never heterosexual men.|
|Escorts can work anywhere in the Netherlands.||Window prostitutes are only allowed to work in cities with window prostitution.|
As with everything there are pros and cons. Below are mentioned the advantages and disadvantages of booking an escort.
|It can be done discreetly.||It’s more expensive (than window prostitution).|
|Ideal for special fantasies.||Generally no refunds for dissatisfaction.|
|Romantic, passionate company.||It may take a while for him / her to arrive.|
|Possibility to meet anywhere.|
|Wide choice of escorts.|
|Clarity and more controle.|
|Easy to book via apps or websites.|
✦ Make good and clear agreements in advance.
✦ Respect the boundaries of the escort.
✦ Be clear about your wishes.
✦ Use a condom.
✦ Pay what has been agreed on. Do not try to negotiate a discount afterwards.
✦ Make sure you are fresh and clean. Take a shower if necessary.
✦ Be relaxed.
✦ Don’t drink too much alcohol.
✦ Do not cause any nuisance to the environment
✦ Don’t pay too much attention to the time, but enjoy the moment.
✦ Always ask permission from the escort if you want to take photos.
Good to know: Most escorts lead a double life and (because of the stigma) do not tell people about their profession as a sex worker. Mainly because of this, escorts usually do not want to be photographed.
In the Netherlands it is not mandatory for sex workers to be tested for sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s/ STI’s).
Everyone in the Netherlands can decide for himself whether to get tested for STIs or not. That is a fundamental right and which also applies to prostitutes and their clients.
That does not mean that sex workers do not often get tested. On the contrary, sex workers are regularly tested. In the Netherlands it is free for all sex workers to be tested for STDs. They do not have to pay for this.
Sex workers are of course aware of the occupational risks, are always cautious and prefer safe sex. Getting an STD is not only physically unpleasant, for sex workers it can also be a danger to their future income.
With a condom you protect yourself against HIV and the chance of other STIs is considerably smaller. Completely 100% safe sex is not possible; not with a sex worker and not with your private contacts.
Also use a condom for blowjobs. The function of a condom is to prevent risks. If you are wearing a condom, you do not run the risk of getting STDs when you get a blow job. Without a condom you can contract herpes, syphilis, chlamydia and gonorrhoea.
In the Netherlands, people can get themselves tested for STDs at a general practitioner (GP), the GGD, or with a home test.
An STD test is done by examining blood, urine or mucous membrane. You can get tested for most STIs from three weeks after infection. An HIV test is only possible after three months. Get yourself tested before you have physical complaints.
Booking Amsterdam escorts can be done through a brokerage company/ escort agency, directly with an escort or in a sex club. An escort can be booked through apps, companies, websites or through a direct phone number.
Escorts can be booked anywhere in the Netherlands. This is also because this country is relatively small, which makes travel distances short. Most escorts in the Netherlands are active in the larger cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague.10x AMSTERDAM ESCORT AGENCIES >
In the Netherlands there are many websites where female, heterosexual escorts can be hired. Hit the button below for an overview of the best websites to book an escort.10 ESCORT WEBSITES
Paid sex is relatively common in the LGBT community. Generally speaking, gay escorts mainly recruit their clients through dating apps or through escort websites.
In addition, there are also the dating apps. Sometimes escorts are also active there.
gayParship is an online dating platform that focuses on singles and is one of the largest and most frequently used online dating sites in Europe.
Grindr has been specially developed for gays. It works slightly differently than others apps. You don’t have to swipe. You can send each other a message immediately. The app is based on how far apart you are today. Once you have created an account, you will receive multiple messages from other users within five minutes.
You don’t have to do anything yourself. Yet it is not that user-friendly when you first use it. It really takes a while to find out how it works. In the meantime, you keep getting messages that distract you. There are no in-depth conversations, but usually you’ll immediately be asked what you are looking for and whether you want to meet. It is true that you get by far the most requests on Grindr.
In the Netherlands there is only a few sex clubs for gay men only. One of them is BoysClub21 in Amsterdam. Another one is Dirty Dick’s on the Warmoesstraat in the Red Light District.
‘…Personally, I’m an Amsterdam escort, so I go to my clients, rather than working in a brothel or behind a window. I do so because it gives me a lot of liberty… I don’t need to rent a room and work the whole day. I can just go to a client for an hour, come back home, and do my other stuff.
… And whether you’re standing behind a window, or work as an escort; being a sex worker in Amsterdam is particularly enjoyable because there is a lot of support from the government. They offer health services that are freely available, such as STD-checks. There are social services that help you out when you’re having emotional issues. And, most importantly: it is legal! You won’t find any police harassment like sex workers experience in other countries. And I am really grateful for that.’
Frequently asked questions about Amsterdam escorts are:

Is something that people often ask. It sure does! These 10 Amsterdam snow pictures show what the Dutch capital looks like when fully snowed. The snow photos below were shot in February 2021 around the Red Light District.
It does not snow every winter in the Netherlands. And when it snows, it is often short-lived. This year it’s different. There is a lot of snow in Amsterdam, it is freezing and people enjoy the winter fun.
This Amsterdam snow photo shows the Nieuwmarkt and the Waag – the oldest non-religious building in the capital. In summer you can enjoy the sun from the terraces. But now, in winter-time, snowmen are built and snow fights are held here.
Snow is rare in the Netherlands and when it snows a lot, people enjoy it to the fullest. Snow brings people together.
The window brothels are closed due to the current corona measures. This is what the windows look like when the curtains are closed and when there is snow in front of the doors.
It is not only the window brothels that are temporarily closed due to the corona measures. Restaurants, hotels, shops, museums and sex shows are also closed. The tourists are not to be found here. Economically, these are tough times for this neighborhood, where people normally earn money from tourists.
Now, only locals who enjoy the snow and the special situation in the Red Light District.
It is strange, but also beautiful to see the most visited place in the Netherlands like this.
The alley below is one of the most visited alleys in Amsterdam. It has dozens of window brothels where prostitutes normally work in the red-lit windows. This alley offers a passage from the Oude Kerk to the famous street in the Red Light District; the Oudezijds Achterburgwal.
The coffeeshops are also heavily affected by the corona measures. Coffeeshops, like The Bulldog, mainly serve tourists – who have barely been around since the corona outbreak.
Known to some; the narrowest alley in Amsterdam. The Trompettersteeg has got new graffiti.
Another narrow alley and more closed windows.
TIP: Check out the Dutch weather forecast website: Buienrader. It’s the most used weather forecast site in the Netherlands and it perfectly shows a radar with upcoming rain, snow or clouds.

I WANT THAT APP! >
‘After I stopped working as a sex worker myself I experienced how hard it is to answer the question ‘what did you do before’. It is not easy being open about your life as a sex worker when you now people have a negative view on that subject. I wanted to try and change that view to make it easier for sex workers to be accepted by society. That’s why I started the Prostitution Information Center in 1994.‘
This unique book by Marcus Segretto originally started off as a blog detailing his adventures on Amsterdam’s Red Light District, from a customer perspective.

Are you considering taking Magic Truffles and do you have many unanswered questions? Or are you just curious? Very good, you have come to the right place!
(Last updated: 16 July 2021)
We often get drug related questions, including questions about Magic Truffles. This is why we made a useful list with frequently asked questions about Magic Truffels. We went to all smart shops in Amsterdam and asked questions to the real experts. All answers can be found below!
Sclerotia, also called Magical Truffles or philosopher’s stones, are a hallucinogenic product of mother nature. Sclerotia influence your consciousness, so that you start experiencing yourself and the world around you more intensively. Many users find this experience beneficial and very valuable.
Yes, Magic Truffles are legal in the Netherlands! Magic Truffles are mostly offered in so called smart shops (not in coffeeshops). Here one can be informed and advised about this drug. Employees of smart shops often give tips on where and how these truffles can be used.
The use of drugs, alcohol or medication is never without risk. It’s good to inform yourself about the effects and risks of a substance.
Up until 2008 magic mushrooms were also legal in the Netherlands. The risks of magic mushrooms were considered acceptable and the harm reduction approach (through information) became the main focus of the Dutch government policy. This all changed when an under aged French girl (17 year old) jumped from the NEMO Science museum back in 2008. She had taken magic mushrooms.
Drug expert August de Loor finds it difficult to say anything about the case:
“We don’t know the exact situation of this case. When someone has suicide plans, the use of stimulants is always dangerous. Is this also said if alcohol is involved?” (source)
Just about all the magic mushrooms that grew in the Netherlands were banned after that incident, but in the end the Dutch government did not ban Magic Truffles.
Yes, you can get pretty high from these Magic Truffles. This legal drug alters your perception. Colours seem more vivid. Textures and patterns can come to life. Kaleidoscopic structures can even appear before your eyes – especially in the twilight or with eyes closed. Other characteristics include floods of laughter, intense joy and satisfaction.
The main difference between Magic Mushrooms and Magic Truffles is that magic truffles grow below ground. This is also the main reason why the truffles are still legal in the Netherlands. You see, when the Dutch government banned Magic Mushrooms they simply forgot to put the magic truffle called the Philosopher’s Stone on the list. This truffle, not a mushroom, grows underground. You can still buy these truffles at smartshops in Amsterdam and the effects are pretty much the same.
The price for 10 grams of truffles (the maximum amount for a beginner) is between 10 to 15 Euro in Amsterdam.
Yes, there’s a change you get a so called “bad trip” or actually get physically sick from using truffles. The most common negative side of these truffles is having a bad trip. In the worst case scenario this involves unpleasant physical symptoms like getting chills, nausea, vomiting and even headaches.
TIP: If you think you’re having a bad trip, always try to remember that this is the result of the truffles that you’ve taken. The sensations will pass. You may have repeated ideas come to you in a continues loop, especially in the first 1,5 hour. These compulsive thought patterns can be easier to break through if you drink some fruit juice (vitamin C helps) or an energy drink, by eating something, or by taking a little walk.
It’s advised to only eat these types of truffles on an empty stomach. It’s not recommended to combine it with anything else. The reason for this is that these hallucinogenic drugs can be difficult to digest, so this can give an easy feeling on the stomach. This can be bothersome at the start of the trip. To reduce the chance of nausea it’s advised to chew them to small bits and on an empty stomach.
These hallucinogenic drugs also effect your tastebuds. To enhance your experience try these during a trip: Passion fruit, Blueberries, Ice cream, Nutella, Tofu & Sashimi.
Veronique is the business owner of this Magic Truffle Store.
Yes, it’s a natural product so this drug can go bad. When you buy the truffles via a Dutch smart shop the truffles normally last around one month. After that the effect that produce gradually fades over time.
The short answer is no. The long answer is; the psilocybine in the truffles causes an overflow of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of well-being and happiness. The increase in serotonin gives you a euphoric feeling and energy, so you probably won’t be able to sleep.
It takes around 4 – 6 hours before the effects of a magic truffle trip to wear off. The trip itself comes in waves and will slowly decrease in intensity with time.
Did you know that an average of 3.3% of all Dutch adults ever took magic mushrooms (480,000 people) and just an average of 0.4% last year? And did you know that 2.1% of all Dutch adults took Magic Truffles ever in their life. (Source)

An escort agency is an establishment where people can get in touch with sex workers. Reservations can be made for the services of the sex worker through the escort agency.
Escorts can work as a self-employed person and use the escort agency as a marketing tool. It’s also possible that the escort is employed by the escort agency. The customers are mainly male. A booking with the escort agency can be made by telephone or internet. Escort agencies generally work with multiple escorts, so the client has a lot to choose from.
Window brothels in Amsterdam Red Light District.
When you think of paid sex, people quickly think of Amsterdam’s Red Light District. That form of sex work is called window prostitution. Escorts generally do not work in window brothels. These are two completely different methods.
Escorts in Amsterdam do not meet their clients in window brothels but elsewhere. For example in hotels. They also do not have to stand in a window brothel to advertise. Instead, they use escort agencies to get in touch with clients.SHOW BEST ESCORT AGENCY >

While choice is always good, it does make finding the right escort tough. With so much variety, you might wonder what you should be doing. For example, how do you book an escort service in Amsterdam? Where to find an escort that you’re looking for? Get your answer here below!
✦ Find an escort service that you can trust.
✦ Look at the escorts which are on-offer from that particular business.
✦ Contact the escort agency or contact the escort directly. Contacting an agency often provides help with finding the perfect accommodation.
✦ Once you have spoken to the agency or escort, you can discuss services, times, dates, and set up the right payment plan.
✦ One other factor about booking an escort is that you need to have everything agreed beforehand.
✦ Read the terms and conditions of the escort company. Contact their support team if you have any questions.
What kind of escort are you intend to book? What makes an Amsterdam escort service the ‘right’ service for you? What’s important for you?
✦ Make sure you use a legitimate escort agency. They should have some form of registration and they should hold a clear profile on the internet. Do not trust any sites that appear to have been made fly-by-night. Without extensive profiles and information, look elsewhere.
✦ Book an escort service that manage your needs.
✦ It could be the best escort agency in the world but if the prostitutes aren’t up for much, it’s no use. Make sure you thorougly explore their database of escorts. As good as everything else should be, the standard of escorts is not something to negotiate over.
✦ Book escorts who do the job that you have asked for. This is important: booking escorts that simply just do their own thing is sadly common, but in no way lined-up with what you asked for. Ensure they have a plan and stick to it!
✦ Make sure that the escort company you are using has good value. How do they get the escort to you? What kind of features do they provide to make sure you can both get a safe, satisfying, enjoyable experience? Is anything done to ensure protection for you both?
