Yab Yum

An intimate portrayal of the lust, secrets & inevitable criminality that took place behind closed doors.

Yab Yum, Amsterdam's most legendary brothel, was forced to close its doors more than ten years ago after the exclusive and vibrant club turned into a dodgy criminal hub. The people who were once on the inside now look back on their eventful past with nostalgia, before they surrendered to civilised life on the outside. They share their stories vividly, tales both extravagant and painful, about the glory days and how it all went wrong.
