I am a bit of a documentary nerd. Everything from Cosmos to King of Kong. If it's on Netflix, there's a good chance I've seen it. Sometime at the beginning of this year, I had watched one on prostitution, which covered cultural aspects of it over a few countries: the US, India, Thailand, and the Netherlands. Recently, there was a story on the BBC about a young girl who was raised in an Indian brothel being the first of her upbringing to get a full college scholarship. My mind wandered back to the documentary where I remembered the conditions these women lived in and how their arrangements were like a sexual convent. I couldn't remember the Netherlands segment but friends of mine who have been to Amsterdam had described it and suggested going, because, as a feminist, it would be an indelible and unforgettable experience.
And, wow, was everyone right.
