“Why? Because it’s safer for everyone here than in a playground.” – An old man who visited during the day and ended up in prison for harming children

“I only work to afford two things; alcohol and rent. And I only pay rent so I have a place to crash when I’ve had too much to drink.” – An alcoholic dancer in her teens

“All women are either sluts or whores. It’s hard telling which she is though.. I had to ask my mother which she was.” – An old man who worked in a brothel. (He’d been in the industry since before he turned eighteen.)
