Romantics may believe that Rose Street in Edinburgh was named after the wild roses on the slopes above the North Loch (now Waverley Station). But Rose Street is commonly used to describe red-light districts of European towns, and to "pluck a rose" was a common euphemism for picking up a prostitute.

Interesting. *nod* Poor girls. I don't think prostitution is wrong, but it's bad when it's not carefully monitored. Pimps are awful. I find prostitution in history a very fascinating subject.

Yeah, I agree. Women who do the work need to be in control of it. In so many countries, especially ones with profound poverty, it's out of control for the women.

If you do the link to my favorites on that account (luludi2) there are other videos that I found interesting, though admittedly weird in some cases, lol. Still, interesting to me :)

P.S. Those aren't my only interests, lol! I have other accounts there.

I'd definitely be one of those "romantics." I can, however, honestly claim I am more of a lilac and peony person.

(AKA Not a whore...not that there's anything wrong with being a prostitute...)
