“Seedy, funny and a MUST do!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We went because we were told that seeing a sex show was a 'must do' whilst in Amsterdam. They squeeze a lot of people into a confined space, the show is funny and seedy. Prey that you are not one of the poor guys that gets dragged up on stage and made to eat a banana out of the aged performer. The sex show is very clinical and staged, but good for a look!!

“Eye opening!”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

I was in Amsterdam for a few days celebrating my 30th birthday with my boyfriend and after having a nosey around the red light district I convinced him to go to a sex show. Seen as he's a bit more prudish than me and we didnt know how long we would stay we booked Moulin Rouge as it was the cheaper option compared with Casa Rosso.
So you can spend as long as you like in there but there are 4 acts in an hour (i'm not sure if a different 4 come on after an hour as we didnt stay that long).
When we first walked in there was a woman naked on stage with a few volunteers on their knees (stay at the back if you dont want to get involved) and she was doing lots of similating acts with them and a banana. One poor youngster got his face thrust into her breasts and then her nether regions but it was all in jest and he seemed to be enjoying himself ;-). This act was more cabaret than sex show.
Next a blonde dressed in pvc came on stage, did a strip tease and then placed a lit candle inside her and writhed around a bit. Again the next act was a bit cabaret with lots of writhing around, stripping off, pole dancing and i'm not sure if it was just this place but the girls seem a bit weighty! i'm in the mindset that if you are trying to sell sex or your body then you should probably make it look the best it can but thats just my opinion.
So after these three we were a bit disapointed when the last girl came out, pole dancing again as we paid to see a sex show! just as i was about to leave "in the navy" came on over the sound system and in walks a 40 year old man to join her on stage! Well they didnt waste anytime and before you blinked she was on her knees ;-). I think he was a bit rough with her tbh and they dont finish the "job"!
Overall a eye opening tongue in cheek night out but not in the least a turn on!

“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Not what I expected. It lasts for only 45 minutes. Durting that time there is 4 striptease shows, and one live couple show. Some of the stripteases were entertaining. The strippers take people from the audience as a part of the show, people that sits in front rows. The couple show was really poor, not one person from the audience clapped when it was over, it lasted for 7-8 minutes. And the lady from the couple show looked awful and disgusting. 25 euro for 45 minutes is not worth it, they throw you out after the shows for the next crowd to come in. If you pay 38 euros at Cassa Rosa you can stay there as long as you want. And it looks more exclusive and professional.
I am not recommending Moulin Rouge, it's a tourist trap.

“Old and fat strippers! ”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We got in for ?25 with 1 drink. Should have gone to Cassa Rosa for ?40. Add a little more at least it will be worth it. Do not go to Moulin Rouge! Tourists trap!

“Not what I expected”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Nice experience, but after hearing so much about it, I was slightly disappointed.

The performers were not as 'fit' as expected, needed more eye candy :)
