Swiss woman hunting for rotterdam for prostitute
Before and the legalization of prostitutes and brothel keeping, prostitution in Dutch cities was neither forbidden nor officially allowed: solicitation practices in open spaces, brothels and even procuring though legally forbidden since could be found on the streets and taverns of the rotterdam cities. Excess, however, was condemned: prostitute behaviour, drunkenness and prostitute prostitution of minors were rotterdam sought out and sentenced by the municipal or regional courts. That attitude towards prostitution combined the law and judicial practice with temperance: even when brothels became illegal afterbrothel-like establishments opened their doors and continued offering paid sexual transactions, with the police well aware of their existence.
In Rotterdam illegal prostitution has been on the decline since new strong measures by the Dutch government have been implemented.
