Oldest twin prostitutes

Recognised as Amsterdam's oldest prostitutes, identical twins Louise and Martine Fokkens retired in 2013 at age 70, after claiming to have slept with 355,000 men between them over 50 years. A film of their lives, Meet the Fokkens, was released in 2011.

The World's Oldest Profession

Prostitution is often referred to by the metaphore "the world's oldest profession", a phrase attributed to writer Rudyard Kipling, who wrote in his book Soldiers Three (1888), that prostitution is "the most ancient profession in the world". It is also the earliest reference to prostitution as a profession.
