Title: Strip the Light Fantastic. Av. de Cotai, Taipa. Macau.

The Cotai strip. It’s where street walkers come to hustle their wares. It’s hookers row. Whore haven. Doxy’s boulevard, siren street, wenches way. Whatever you wanna call it, call it what you will. It doesn’t matter to the girls. They couldn’t care less. They’re just after your money.

They have their clock on you. In, out, shake it all about, do the hokey cokey and hurry the fuck up! Pay and bugger off. That’s their sentiment. Woe betide anyone foolish enough to try short change them on the agreed tariff. The good time girls can turn your evening into a very bad one if you engage them of their services and then try nickle and dime them down them after shedding your load. Or not pay them at all. Heck you do that, and they might just feed you to the chickens.

Now if you don’t know what feeding to the chickens means, it’s common practice in China. Your wife, girlfriend or mistress, finds out you are been unfaithful. Well one night while you are blissfully asleep, she’ll lop off your member with a butchers knife, chop it u into fine bite sized pieces, and then toss the bits out of the window to the chickens in the yard. It might be for this reason the Chinese men have a word for prostitutes. They call them ‘chicken girls’.

Well it’s strip the light fantastic here along the Cotai, and the chicken girls are out strutting their stuff. 24/7/365.
