Prostitution Information Centre in Amsterdam

PIC - Prostitution Information Centre in the Red Light District

The Prostitution Information Centre - PIC is located in the heart of Amsterdam in the red light district, near Amsterdam’s Old Church. The PIC serves as an educational centre and resource for providing Amsterdam’s visitors with information and advice about prostitution.

The practice of prostitution in the Netherlands was legalised nationally in October 2000. However, Amsterdam has long had a tolerant attitude towards prostitution, coupled with clear regulations that have been in force for many decades. Though prostitution is legal in Amsterdam, there is still a considerable amount of misunderstanding about it. The PIC’s objective is to clear up some of that misunderstanding by providing visitors with accurate information regarding prostitution.

Mariska knows how to convey her message very well. The groups of tourists listen carefully, some even with open mouth. They may ask what they want, sometimes with giggles and a red face as a result.

The PIC was founded in August 1994 by former prostitute Mariska Majoor. Mariska Majoor worked as prostitute from the age of 16 to 21, and quit, in her words, “because I feel different now about sex and relationships than a couple of years ago but there are plenty of people, who like me, have made a well considered choice to work in prostitution, and they deserve our respect.

Most tourists who visit the Red Light District come from countries where prostitution is illegal. Tourists from within the Netherlands often come from areas in which prostitution is less openly present. We understand that many people walk through the Red Light District with wide eyes and many questions. There is no need to wonder, you can just pop in at the PIC for an answer.
