History of sex in Victorian east London and Whites Gentlemen’s Club
Whites has been here in Aldgate for almost 13 years now, and we are very interested in the history of the streets we are situated in and walk. We hope that we will go down in history as the best Lap dancing club London has ever seen; here are some facts that may interest you.
London’s East End has been synonymous with sex for the past 200 years, reaching it’s peak in the Victorian era which culminated in the infamous ‘Jack The Ripper’ attacks in 1888. Our streets here are paved with great character and some interesting facts, some of which we can deliver to you in the great new safe days of modern times around the fantastic Whites Gentlemen’s Club.
Unbelievably, during the Victorian era many ‘Molly Houses’ were set up around London and the east end that solely and legally provided prostitution. Although only these particular premises were licensed, and to find out if there were at a particular Molly house the client could walk past and look where the girls were exposed through the windows, an average price was 50p! Unfortunately these girls would have been living in dilapidated squalor so would prostitute themselves as it was seen as the only way they had out! The sex trade has played a massive part in shaping London throughout the centuries and is one of the world’s oldest professions. Top author Dan Cruickshank states that in the history of Georgian London as many as 1 in 5 women worked as prostitutes!
It’s unfathomable to us in the modern era to understand Victorian social problems. These streets that we walk every day are full of history, some good some bad and thank God things have evolved and places like Leman street continue to change for the better thankfully exist in what is considered now one of the most affluent parts of London. I’m sure that none of the Victorians would recognise what has happened to East London in the past 10 years alone, and whether you recognise us as Whites gentlemen’s club London as London’s best strip club, London’s best lap dancing club or London’s best Gentlemen’s club.
