and hang up the lingerie :-D

This is a copy & paste......... I didn't make any of this up - including the ladies' name!

Amsterdam’s oldest prostitutes are set to hang up their lingerie after a combined 100 years in the sex industry.

Twin sisters Louise and Martine Fokkens, 70, are going to retire after more than fifty years each working in Amsterdam’s infamous red light district.

Between them, the pair estimate they have slept with more than 355,000 men, The Sun reports.

Now they say they are too old to sell sex.

Louise, a mother-of-four, has arthritis, which makes some sexual positions “too painful”.

And Martine, who has three children, says she can no longer draw the numbers she used too - except for one elderly gentleman who still visits for his weekly S&M sessions.

“I couldn’t give him up,” she told the newspaper.

“He’s been coming to me for so long like it’s like going to church on a Sunday”

The sisters – who usually wear matching red outfits – turned to prostitution to earn a living after escaping violent relationships before their 20th birthday.

The Fokkens were the subject of a documentary titled Meet the Fokkens in 2011, and also wrote about their sexual exploits in the 2012 book, The Ladies of Amsterdam.

If you are not having one there is no need to know. Now get on with what you were doing!

I've noticed in our local Co-Op in a popular retirement area, that as you queue to check out the "Top shelf" magazine shelves are only about shoulder height. I suppose it's so little old men with a stoop can still reach them ;-)



LadyScozz Report 14 Mar 2013 23:31

I cracked up at their surname :-D

OH & I were in Amsterdam in the late 1980s, ofcourse we went for a walk through the "red light" district. Can't remember seeing twins in any of the windows :-D

We were advised by the staff at the hotel not to go there at night, not only because it could be dangerous, but the "girls" didn't like other women there at night, and often threw things at them!

P.Holly ~ have you ordered your leather outfit yet? :-D :-D


PricklyHolly Report 14 Mar 2013 23:35

Yes Scozz and it came with a whip.

I have booked my horse riding session fer Sunday.

Come away Prickles, you're spending too much time on this thread, It's Spencers and Marks. Ok? :-D


Allan Report 14 Mar 2013 23:48

It'll never beat (no pun intended) Hay Street in Kalgoorlie.

Although mostly closed, all the old brothels, which at first I thought meant soup kitchens ;-) were doing a roaring trade back in the early 1980's.

it was a well known tourist spot and the girls enjoyed having a chat with passers by


PricklyHolly Report 14 Mar 2013 23:49

Island...........:-D :-D :-D


LadyScozz Report 14 Mar 2013 23:49


Now I know why they're called Marks & Sparks



Allan Report 14 Mar 2013 23:51

I wonder if before she retired she had a whip round for all her old clients?


LadyScozz Report 15 Mar 2013 00:29

lol Allan :-D

Re the Kalgoorlie girls....... I know a man who went to Kalgoorlie every two weeks (he worked on the old "Tea & Sugar" train)...... he said the girls were in horse boxes! Rows and rows of them.

Maybe I misheard the word "horse" ?
