A pair of 70-year-old twins, Louise and Martine Fokkens, believed to be the oldest and longest serving commercial sex workers in Amsterdam, Holland have retired. They were in the business for more than 50 years and they reportedly had sex with more than 355,000 men.
They stated that getting old combined with a changing community informed their decision to quit the job.
While Louse pointed out that her arthritis made some of her work too painful, they both agreed that it had become difficult to attract new clients. The twins became prostitutes as teenagers in order to escape violent relationships. They were known for matching outfits, usually red dresses while working. Louse has four children while her twin sister has three.
