The brothel is about to get a whole lot sexier!
… and Alyx Dellamonica found this fellow at the Westminster Pier Park offical opening.
He looks ready to open many things, among them the door to the playhouse and the adventurous heart. And the stilts just make it that much more delightful. [Photo courtesy Alyx Dellamonica.]
Oh certainly, it looks pleasant, seen through a glass or two (or more) of rum punch. But a floozy’s life, mesdames et messieurs, is not an easy one, what with the line at the peep show and the gentlemen who are no gentlemen at all.
Sometimes it takes more than rum punch to make the evenings pass. Sometimes it takes hashish. Or something even stronger.
Is it any wonder that a girl new to the life might decide that, if one works in the brothel, it may be better to use the brain than the body?
Love conquers all, surely. Yet love is capricious, love comes like a thief in the night. And in the meantime, there are still the patrons to please . . . .

They might include ravished or champagne or war, or peep show, or a thousand other things, really: it was a busy, busy night at the brothel, situated there at the intersection of the present and the past, of the hard commerce of paid desire and the love that conquers all.
So instead we offer this portrait of LUCY, betwixt and between two masked patrons of the evening, contemplating just what a girl must do for love.
