    Because it has a red light district. Legal prostitution. Tons of tourists with money, and a lot of drugs.

    Please beware of the STDs before you go to prostitutes or sleep around, especially INCURABLE very common HERPES (HSV2), Every 1 out of 6 People have it, since prostitutes and girls who sleep around have sex with so many, they are most likely to have it and this virus can be contracted even if you wear a condom

    See below

    Check for the sections TREATMENT and EPIDEMIOLOGY

    Pls don't ruin your entire life for FEW MINUTES OF FUN, It's not worth it. Have one trusted partner for sex even it may take time to find a one

    Prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, and it's considered a valid way to earn a living for both women and men, and your earnings are taxed, you get social insurance (sick leave, pension contributions, etc.). Prostitutes are required to practise safe sex and get regular health checks.

    Needless to say it's not a job for everyone, but it can pay very well.

    no more than in any other city

    it is just that they are allowed to be on show , where other places make it a crime

    Because too many stupid foreigners think that it is not as legalised and regulated in the rest of the Netherlands.

    Same way they think weed is legal in Amsterdam, when there are hundreds of other places in the Netherlands where they can get it
