Sex Shops and Peep Shows

South Beach loves to glamorize social decay, so it isn’t surprising that Amsterdam’s red-light district, De Wallen, has gotten the SoBe spit-polish treatment. The area, arguably a cesspool of criminal gang activity and human trafficking, is brought to life — minus any actual prostitution — when De Wallen Rouge brings the skeeze to Mokai every Friday.

Coincidentally, ever since its lurid face-lift, the lounge looks like a mini-whorehouse. And there, under the glare of the nightclub’s crimson lights, DJs Konflikt and Rascal will provide the sultry soundtrack. The party will also be a feast for your eyes (and dirtier parts), with burlesque featuring contortionists, S&M with plenty of hot wax to spare, and something called a grinder show. Don’t ask. The sin starts at 11 p.m. and costs $25, which wouldn’t even buy you a handjob in the real De Wallen.
Fridays, 11 p.m., 2010
