Amsterdam prostitute twins retire at 70 after 50 years and 355,000 men
Metro [UK] ^ | Thursday 14 Mar 2013 | Aidan Radnedge

Posted on 03/15/2013 11:46:37 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Two twin sister pensioners have decided to retire as prostitutes after half a century in the sex trade, having slept with 355,000 men between them.

Louise and Martine Fokkens, both 70, say they are finding it a ‘painful’ struggle to go on working in Amsterdam’s notorious ‘red light zone’.

They claim to be the oldest prostitutes in the Dutch city and last year starred in a documentary film named Meet The Fokkens.

Mother-of-four Louise admitted, though, that her arthritis means some positions are now ‘too painful’ – while mother-of-three Martine complained about a drop in custom.

Only one elderly man addicted to his weekly S&M sessions remains a regular, she said.

‘I couldn’t give him up. He’s been coming to me for so long it’s like going to church on a Sunday,’ Martine added.

Brothels were legalised in the Netherlands in 2000 – but the sisters say this ‘has not improved prostitutes’ lives’.

Martine said: ‘It is better for the pimps and the foreigners, but not for the Dutch girls.’

But the twins are confident their income from film rights will keep them solvent in the years of retirement ahead.

355,000 ÷ (50 * 365) ÷ 2 = 9.72 men per day

Seems a bit hard to believe.

Ya think? It has never been a glamorous profession and never will be. Why don't some people (leftists) ever get that?

But the twins are confident their income from film rights will keep them solvent in the years of retirement ahead.

What?!! The great socialist societies of Europe won't give them a life of ease in their old age?

They are young and can look forward to a Playboy spread, leaked sex tape on YouTube, their own reality show, and finally a career in the adult film industry.

By and large, Leftists want to ***** anything that moves with no consequences. Facts get in the way.

Madonna would call them lazy quitters. I heard her last baby walked out of her standing up.

Reminds me of the old joke. A girl walks into a bank with a gigantic bag of nickles dimes and quarters. The bank manager tells her “that's pretty impressive. Did you hoard all of that yourself? She replied. “ No. My sister whored half of it.”

Louise and Martine Fokkens, both 70

So, the twins are the same age?

Lets just do a hypothetical here. Lets say the guy is 50+ years old,( really any age). Now he’s got his wallet and walking down the red light way. Answer me this, why would he stop at these two and hand out the money? We can always dream of the 20 year old, but she might cost more than the guy has, but 70yrs old? I don’t believe they had any business. Even a 70 year old guy would want the 18 year old girl, that’s just the way men think. Even a nice looking 40 year old, but 70? I just don’t believe the story.

With a name like Fokken...

When I was in university many years ago, my Spanish professor told a story about how he was in Amsterdam years before. Walking down a street, he passed a shop and noticed that they were selling "Fokken Gin." He said that he could not pass on th eopportunity. He bought a bottle, when back to his hotel room... and drank the whole bottle!
