WATCH: Sex workers REFUSE to leave famed Amsterdam district despite mayor vows to clean up

Bathed in red neon light, hundreds of prostitutes ply their trade from behind windows in the narrow canalside streets of Amsterdam ? and that’s how they want it to stay.

The Dutch capital’s first female mayor has vowed to clean up the notorious red light district and possibly even close some of the famed window booths, but sex workers say they won’t move.

“I have one thing to say to all these people who call us vulnerable, and that is that they don’t know us at all,” said Felicia Anna, chairwoman of Red Light United, a newly-formed union for window-frame sex workers.

Paris’ Most Scandalous Yet Beautiful Restaurant, Lapérouse, Reopens

“Lapérouse is thus one of those addresses of libertinism that makes Paris the ‘capital of gastronomy’ as much as ‘the brothel of Europe.’”

A Paris institution, the legendary three-story eatery with the cobalt-blue façade has stood at 51 Quai des Grands Augustins near the banks of the Seine since 1766, and became a hotspot over the decades for the city’s literary (Victor Hugo and Charles Baudelaire were regulars) and political luminaries. And thanks to its salons privés (private dining rooms), the restaurant also served as a discreet setting for risqué romps between affluent gentlemen and their mistresses. At one point, there was even a secret tunnel connecting the decadent joint with the French Senate, allowing philandering politicians to slip in and out undetected.
