April 3 2007

In Amsterdam brothels held an open day. Hundreds of visitors were held in a queue to go through with the tour of the haunts of vice of the famous red-light district. The organizers would like to improve the understanding of this area which is notorious.

"I believe that the open day - this is a great idea," - said one of the strippers Amsterdam Bar Banana Bar. "This is especially interesting for women. If they learn what we do here, they will realize that there is nothing surprising in the fact that their husbands or guys come here", - quotes Reuters the word dancer.

This event organizers wanted to dispel rumors about the bad reputation this 800-year-old quarter of the capital, which he began to use after the shocking reports of forced prostitution, human trafficking and organized crime.

"This day is intended to help lift the taboo on the prostitution and bring more understanding and respect" - said one of the organizers of the Open Day Gecko Wanders. More than 30 brothels could be closed by the authorities since last year they were deprived of licenses on suspicion of money laundering and drug trafficking. Nevertheless, those who engaged in tourism business, argue that the red light district is as attractive as Amsterdam's art museums and coffee shops, where you can freely buy and smoke marijuana, says the Telegraph.
