Meet the Fokkens – The famous twin prositutes

We’re talking about Martine & Louise Fokkens. These twin sisters have worked as prostitutes in the Red Light District for 50 years! They are now 73 years old and they have recently retired. Martine and Louise were born during the Second World War in the West of Amsterdam. During our Meet the Twin Prostitutes Tour you’ll meet and greet these lovely ladies. Take a picture with them and ask the Fokkens anything you like.

Martine and Louise have a lot of experience and a lot of interesting stories to tell. Stuff like; weird requests from their customers, the pimp they had in the past, how they bought their own brothel, how customers took them along on holidays abroad and much more. It’s really fascinating to hear their stories! They’ve had an interesting life; with both good days and bad days in the Red Light District.

How was the Red Light District back in the days?

The Fokkens twins often say that a lot of things have changed in the Red Light District. The area was much rougher in the 70’s and 80’s. This was in a time when heroin was very popular in Amsterdam. It was sold in the Red Light District, which caused a lot of trouble, with dealers and junkies all over the place. Also, the corruption was very high, especially among the police officers. Many police men were paid off by the Chinese, who imported the hard drug to the Netherlands.

In the 60’s, street prostitution was still allowed in Amsterdam. As with every form of prostitution, this has advantages and disadvantages. The twins can tell you all about it. On the picture below you see Martine and Louise standing in the Cow Street (Dutch: Koestraat), which is located in the heart of the Red Light District.
