Trade In Your Hooker Heels for a Louis Vuitton Bag!

I’ve never been to Amsterdam, but even I know all about the Red Light district there. Drugs! Sex!

It is like Disney World, but for grownups…who like drugs and sex.

Pretty much heaven on earth. But apparently the Netherlands’ government doesn’t agree. Even though it brings in big tourism bucks, Netherlands officials want to put an end to prostitution. (Total buzzkill!) And their plan to end it is an interesting one….

“The city is offering prostitutes ‘credits’ for good behavior that can be used to buy designer clothes or furniture. The vouchers, which the Dutch media has mockingly dubbed “whore miles,” will be awarded for every step sex workers take to get out of the lifestyle.

I wonder how that works: 50 points for not hanging out in windows? 400 points for throwing away the see-through plastic heels? 1,000 points for not accepting money for a blowjob?

Who regulates that? And how many points does it take to get a Louis Vuitton? Couldn’t the woman just turn a few tricks then head over to the neighborhood Nordstrom and pick one up herself? And isn’t it a little unfair to assume that all it takes to change a woman’s career (and yes it is a career…they even have a Union!) is a designer handbag? These are serious career women – we cannot trivialize what they do.

Even though I might consider leaving my job for this — I don’t have sex for a living. If I did, it would take a lot more than a few handbags for me to give that up.
