There has been a long history of sex being traded for money and the sex tourism industry has become full-fledged, gaining never-ending revenues from its billions of frequent travelers and customers. Depending on the people’s viewpoints, some countries try to curb this practice of prostitution, while a few other countries have legalized most aspects of it. While in some places, people ignore it; however, there are places where red lights districts are allowed to be ruled by the prostitutes. The glorious history of sex tourism in Europe has made a few places more reputed for this practice as compared to others. Check out which European destinations have made it big by cashing on this hidden aspect of human nature.
De Wallen in Amsterdam, Netherlands: This destination attracts innumerable tourists of both sexes and many of them get involved in sexual activities with prostitutes who have been playing it big through the city’s alleys. The whole alley network includes about 300 single-room cabins. The clients are charmed their way from behind almost all glass doors. This erotic place is full of sex shops, theaters and museums. Somehow, the oldest Amsterdam church in this city is also accompanied as its neighbor by a sex worker’s statue. Considering organized crimes like pimping and human trafficking happening frequently in the city, the law is now tightly monitoring this business.
Reeperbahn, Hamburg, Germany: Some tourists consider this place to be a hotter destination than Amsterdam. The evidence is this place’s display of live sex acts. In Davidstrasse, prostitution is made legal at some times of the day, while in Herbertstrasse, prostitutes are even allowed to display themselves from behind the glasses. Like Amsterdam, this destination also has sex shops, theaters, bars, strip clubs and nightclubs for those interested in sexual activities.
Soho, London, England: This place also has a notorious history of being the business center of sexual activities. The streets are packed with brothels and prostitutes. But now, the place is known more for extorting money from customers rather than offering them quality services. This destination is emerging more as a gay culture center as of recent times and drug dealing is also a big issue here.
