Re: I live above a brothel!!
I have seen some of the girls (just live around the corner) and they were very well dressed, so I doubt they are being held captive against their will. Unfortunately, as long as there is demand for the oldest profession, there will be brothels.
If you really want to see something crass, go to Thailand and watch all the disgusting, sweaty fat ex-pats showing off their 12 year old (at least that's how old they look) Thai girls. At least here it is regulated.
