I was shocked to see so few “girls” on the street along the Rue des Commercants drag. There were just 2 girls on the Pelican corner around Café Jimmy, just 2 girls on the street between Pelican and Flamingo, just 2 girls on the Flamingo corner around the old closed Café Flamingo, and then just 2 girls on the Rue des Commercants itself between Flamingo and Fifth Avenue. The Mayor Yvan Mayeur’s determination to “depress” & eradicate the Alhambra scene by fining the girls and their clients 350 euros each is apparently working. Though, again, I was perhaps just too early. The early Fifth Avenue girls were poor too. The couple of Cine Paris films I saw during my brief half-hour stay were OK—OK meaning they were not the sort of thing I would ever watch at home on my computer, but they at least enabled me to get an erection; so in the in between area of being “OK”. The disaster is films that are so bad I cannot even get an erection, and the great pleasure is a film so good that I rush to find it on my computer as soon as I get back home.
So, yes, the Cine Paris films were rubbish, and the street girls were rubbish, but I knew they would be, and: it doesn’t matter! It is still just a joy to be in a place where in walking distance from my hotel is a proper porn cinema, street girls, a daytime floozie bar, window girls, kabins and a strip club. That is why Brussels is still so lovely to come to. We’ve already lost the Cine ABC, California Peep Show & kabins, Paradise Peep Show & kabins, so I must treasure what is left while I can.
Yes, the Rue d’Aerschot window girls are stunningly beautiful but walking along a cold street trying to shelter from the biting wind and avoid stepping in dog shit is not conducive to a sexy feeling, so that is why I do not feel like actually doing anything. Fifth Avenue is a warm, sexy environment but just hasn’t had the quality of girls this time (Ina never there when I’m there, and no Lucy at all). Le Coin has some nice women but of the heftier variety; don’t come here looking for sexy young slim things, which I don’t.
