    Amsterdam-Vancouver comparison

    On a recent combined business and holiday trip to
    Europe, I got to spend two nights in Amsterdam
    and sample a little of what is on offer in terms of
    the good life. I thought a few notes of
    comparison could be helpful to future visitors, and
    help to better appreciate what we have here.

    The red light district in Amsterdam covers one
    main street (with a canal) for several blocks, along
    with four or five one-block side streets on each
    side of the canal. Girls literally sit or stand in tiny
    window-fronted rooms right on the street, one after
    the other, with from maybe 50 to 100 women
    working on a busy summer afternoon or evening.
    Prices are standard for the young hotties (and
    there are MANY) at 50 Euro for “a suck and a ****”
    (the standard line), everything covered. At about
    $70 Canadian, this sounds like a great deal.
    However, that amount covers only 15 minutes, one
    standard position, and not all clothes removed.
    Hence, the initial pricing is really an opportunity to
    start the up-sell process, designed to separate
    you from as much cash as possible. If you go for
    half an hour, all positions, all clothes off, it would
    be roughly 120 Euro (or more, if you fall prey to all
    the requests for more cash), which is roughly $175
    Canadian. Guys with iron will and seeking a quick
    release would do very well there, but if you are
    susceptible to up-selling, and like to take your
    time, the cost can be high.

    Let me stress that, among the young cute ones,
    which are all I spoke to, the quality of looks, charm,
    figure and appeal was SMOKING hot in many
    cases. And the appeal of walking around on
    narrow streets lined on both sides with windows
    containing hot young working girls is great. The
    streets are sometimes full of boisterous groups of
    men, often in stag parties, and there is a kind of
    danger in the air at times. The age range of the
    working ladies went up to about 50, and body
    types were highly diverse among the older ladies.
    There were sections of Asian girls, sections of
    black girls, and lots of tall, cute athletic-looking
    Dutch women, who are, to me, complete

    On my first day, while reeling from jetlag due to a
    flight that got in at 10 am, I met Crystal, a young,
    tall, lean blonde who looked like a slim Cameron
    Dias. She was extremely friendly until the clothes
    came off, and then it was all business to get me
    out the door in minimal time. Remarkably, she
    asked if I wanted to pay 25 Euro extra to have her
    remove her top. I said sure, and then she seemed
    embarrassed that she had on a padded top, with
    virtually no breasts, but big puffy nipples. Of course
    there was no pinching or kissing the nipples.

    On my next evening in town, a week later, I had
    more time, more energy, and I slipped into a coffee
    shop/cannabis café for a little pick me up before
    window shopping. My first encounter was with
    Anna, a tall, very slim, gorgeous brunette with big
    hair and a sultry smile, who looked Southern European. She brought me into her room, and then into the back and down the stairs
    into a larger room that serves as the bedroom for
    perhaps three window girls. Anna caught me
    perfectly with the upsell, extracting $150 Euro from
    me but delivering a great time. Then I took about
    an hour or so to recover and wander the streets.
    When it gets dark, and you are stopping into cafes
    to take a few hits from a great joint of wonderful
    weed, it can get confusing to find your way back to
    the hotel. I was about to call it quits, but decided to
    try one more quickie, and see if I could avoid the

    I picked a very tall Dutch girl with dark hair and a
    superb figure. She looked like Heidi Klum, the
    German model, crossed with a varsity volleyball
    player. She was probably just under 6 feet tall,
    about 130 pounds, and very sweet. Lolita was from
    Maastricht, had just turned 20 and had only been
    in the business for two months. Interestingly she
    was embarrassed by the up-sell and basically
    didn’t bother with it, instead just gave me for free
    what others charged extra for, and got on about her
    business of giving me a wonderful time. I was so
    impressed, so grateful and so loaded that I ended
    up giving her an extra 70 Euro anyway. She was so grateful she
    gave me a real kiss on the way out. She would be
    a definite repeat.

    All in all, I would say that a visit to an MP here in
    Vancouver would likely give you better service,
    likely no up-sell, more time, and less of a bizarre
    party atmosphere. However the appeal of all the
    women on the streets at once on a hot summer
    night with the red lights on can not be denied.

    The experience also alerted me to what this hobby
    would be like without the internet. This was the first
    time in my life I have walked in and paid for sex
    without checking references and
    recommendations. I can now see that without
    boards like this one my chances of having quality
    experiences would be greatly reduced.

    Thanks for the replies

    Lisa and Paige:

    I do think life is a lot better here for the ladies, although they earn heavily over there if they are successful (according to Anna, 140,000 Euro annual gross, for full time work). Its also pretty strange for the clients there too.


    It was 6.5 Euro ($10 Cdn) for a superb, 4 inch, cone shaped "Natural", no tobacco, medium strength (to avoid getting me completely lost on the street)

    yeah, but they gotta pay taxes, lots of them! You know what that does to your pay cheque! Even if you only pay tax on half, it's still a lot, and i bet those tiny rooms cost a bundle. so i agree i'd say vancouver has better working conditions for everybody, including the serious hobbyist but i must admit the few times i've enjoyed the hobby in germany, it was pretty wild. great report, thanks.

    I visited the RLD for the first time this spring, and found that the experiences were very mechanical and experiences with SPs in Canada have been much more satisfying (although there is something intrinsically appealing and voyeuristic about the "window shopping"!)

    I have been punting on and off. Yes, most of the times, the services in Amsterdam are rushed, but the selection and prices are much better than Canada, even when you factor in the travel costs. IMO, the experience vary depending on the day and time. Also if I recall, there are three RLDs. Anyway, my worst SP experience was UK; the best was Thailand.
