    This afternoon I decided to just bite the bullet and enter one of the window, after making my interest known. I paid the 50 Euro upfront and proceeded to undress and lie down as instructed. But I noticed she stayed in her lingerie, and then she put a condom on me, before giving me oral sex. Now correct me if I assumed too much; but shouldn’t she have stripped too at the same time I did? And during the blow job, she asked me, would I like to pay extra to see her naked, to touch her, and to have sex with her in all positions. I didn’t have anymore money on me to pay near enough 150 Euro to go as far as she put it to me. And to make matters more frustrating I couldn’t even get an erection after 5 minutes of her working on my penis, so we cut short the interaction. I then got dressed and was practically pushed out the door before she then closed it really abruptly.

      You were really unlucky indeed. In circa 2010, I was working in Amsterdam, and visited the same Hungarian sex worker (thrice), and an Italian. Both were, in truth, too gorgeous to be working there. Bearing in mind this was 8 years ago, the price was 35 euros, and an additional 20 for taking their tops off. It is very normal for them to always start with oral, but where you got had, was that her pants should have been removed without extra charge, and that should have included intercourse. So to conclude, the 50 euros you paid should have included 1) oral start 2) pants off 3) intercourse. The extra cost should have included only – top off and touching of her breasts.

        that sucks dude. I was in amsterdamn last summer . I walked around for 3 hours looking at every girl until I found , what I thought, imo, was the most beautiful blond Swedish angel in that whole area. it was 50 for a “suck and fuck”, turn out it was for only suck , she kept her clothes on, but for 50 more she got naked and I fucked her until our time was done wich was around 25 mins. I went back to her the next day 🙂

  2. Sara Lister says:

    Thanks for this overview. Very useful!
    Could you please tell me how much people normally tip in Amsterdam?

  3. Carol Ann says:

    Tips are typically included in everything in Amsterdam (cab, Uber, restaurant dining, etc). It does seem like an extra “gratuity” is appreciated… Especially so people in the sex industry. But it’s not expected (unless they just expect you to do it because where you are from it is expected).

    Maybe it was a dude dressed as a woman.
