Ye Olde Sturbridge Village: a made-uppe historie

Chapter XI: Ye oldeste professionne

Whore-houses in Ye Olde Sturbridge Village were much different than the garishe neon structures of moderne red-lighte districts. Painted whole-somme white to allay the suspicions of Puritannes with raised eye-brows, the only sure sign that a house was one of ille repute was seeing a woman dressed in “adulterous” red, a color that drove men of that tyme into a lustie frenzie. This in spite of the fact that the whores of that tyme were not terriblie attractive by moderne standards.
