A very public urinal for the guys on the streets....A guy was actually using this while our Contiki group was standing next to this listening to our TM talking about Amsterdam.

Starting our venture into the Red Light district. For safety issues, it's best not to take photos from this point onwards during evening onwards.

Inside Sex Museum
I've chosen the "safer" pics to post here.
