Hooker Red

It's official. The Amsterdam red light district has its own red paint color, which will go nicely with the red lights. 

As you may know, Amsterdam is famous for its red light district. Prostitution is considered a legal, albeit heavily regulated trade. Most people in Amsterdam frown upon prostitution. However, because it is as old as the world, they figure it won't go away any time soon either. Therefor it's better to regulate it, so that at least they can keep the criminals out the door, who generally run the trade. This policy has given way to the famous town district.

Engels Verf, a well known local paint retailer, has taken it upon themselves to establish an official 'hooker red'. They collaborated with actual prostitutes to pick the 'real' red for the red light district. The color was unveiled recently at the occasion of the opening a new branche of the business.
