With reports from Amsterdam, Antwerp, Hong Kong, Montreal and Taipei, this book makes clear that every red light district is the specific outcome of the morphology of the city, the legal status of sex work, cultural understandings, city planning, and market forces. It also makes clear that sex work has a deep impact on the city’s urban form, its buildings, rooms, streets, squares and alleys, even in places where sex work is officially illegal.
