Arriving back at our hotel in Amsterdam, just having seen one of Amsterdam’s infamous sex shows, a question runs through each of my wife and my minds — was that sexy?
For those not familiar, Amsterdam’s red light district boasts three ‘world famous’ sex shows — all within a block of one another in the Red Light District. Bananenbar, the wildest of the three, seems to consist mainly of women putting things (like bananas) into their pussy and taking things out (apparently there was once a performer who comes on stage naked and is fully dressed by the end of the show, with solely the content of her vagina). The largest show – Casa Rossa – has 8 acts consisting mainly of strippers (with props – dildos, bananas, etc) and couples having sex on stage. The acts run in a loop, so within about an hour and a bit you will have seen all eight. The third – Le Moulin Rouge – is much like the Casa Rossa, but in a smaller venue with fewer acts.
We opted for Le Moulin Rouge. There were five acts – first a stripper. As she stripped she had a male audience member come on stage and she stripped him as well; the culmination was her squatting over the you man, with a marker in her pussy, writing ‘I’m a bad boy’ on his chest – in incredible penmanship (pen-pussyship??). The next act was called the banana show. A very happy/engaging stripper pulled three men onstage, stripper for them and then had then eat pieces of banana from various parts of her body… with the last pieces in ‘you know where’. Next up and powerful looking dominatrix did a sexy, mild BDSM routine with some audience members. Fourth, a gorgeous stripper did a fun burlesque dance for a very nervous young man. She was a little disappointed when he would not touch her or pull the beads from her vagina – she improvised well. Next up – another stripper who did an awesome performance for a very, very, very, happy audience member; he almost exploded when he was asked to use a dildo on her – once he figured out what it was. Finally, a couple came on stage dressed as a cop and her prisoner. They did a very good strip tease and then had (very mediocre) sex on stage.
So, what did we think. Firstly, it was a very comfortable, un-intimidating experience. The audience was a good mix of men and man/woman couples. My wife certainly didn’t feel out of place – there were at least 20 other women there, in an audience of about 70. There was no seedy, dangerous feeling… at all.
And did we like it? Unequivocally yes. It was a really fun time. It was sexy, titilating, fun… all good things. The highlight – for us – was a woman in the audience a few seats down from us who was grinding ear to ear the whole time; obviously having the time of her life. That said, it as not the type of experience that left you turned on.. it was more sexy/fun than sexy/hot. And I think that is the point of these sex shows.. they are designed to have fun with sex, as opposed to get people all hot and horny. And they succeeded in spades. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Amsterdam.
