At 16, one shouldn't be thinking about sex. Instead, one should continue to learn more about it. IMHO, raising the age of consent might minimize unwanted teen pregnancy, which is on the rise around the globe.
On the council estates in the UK; if you are not pregnant by 16; you are either infertile or a lesbian.

For the girls its quick money, and some make bloody good money, and so do those who hire them.
The money goes to pimps. Very few of the girls make any money.

Hi,



Even if prostitution is legal, vandalism etc is not and I would make a point of reporting each and every incident. You might find the toleration of prostitution by police in the area may go down a bit if they keep getting called out.

I know of someone who lived in the red light district in Amsterdam and she never had problems as the pimps made it their business to ensure "normal" residences were not inconvenienced; after all they don't want the cops crawling around.

Cheers,
Nick

You are talking about Sihlquai, right? I can attest that the girls that are not being forced, do quite well actually...

zero tolerance. I would use a water canon to clean up sihl quai. plus arrest all kerb crawlers and make their names public, like they do with football hooligans.

"zero tolerance".

Yeah coz that worked so well in the US in regards to drugs, why not use it in an even less dangerous context and drive it underground where itll become even worse for those in the industry, and criminalize what is obviously a large part of the population?

Hmm, from the articles I have seen, they have the same problem with pimps and human trafficking then.... is that correct?

And your solution is to push it even more underground where the pimp has it even easier?

human trafficking only exists because so much potential for profit exists. harassing pimps at every opportunity reduces profit. the city of amsterdam is doing all it can to close down window brothels as it's redlight district has been taken over by organised crime
