Casa Xochiquetzal (The House of the Beautiful Flowers) is a retirement home for prostitutes, established in Mexico City’s Tepito neighborhood, that got it’s name from the Aztec goddess of love and women. The center was founded in 2007 by a former prostitute, Carmen Munoz, impressed by the old sex workers she saw sleeping in the streets. And it wasn’t easy at all. It took years of lobbying for her to get the support of the government and local media. Andres Manuel Lopes Obrador, mayor at the time, gave her a dilapidated 18th century house, which she transformed into what is now home for 23 old prostitutes, with available accommodations for 45 women. They have to fulfill one condition, other than the obvious one, being a former sex worker, and that regards their age – women have to be at least 60 years old. Interestingly enough, even if they aren’t required to, many of the prostitutes choose to continue practicing their job. In most cases, they have been sold as young girls or even as children and forced into prostitution, thereby no contact with their families has been kept. Although most of them can still work, the money is very little, compared to what younger women earn, and this makes it impossible for them to survive by themselves, so Casa Xochiquetzal comes as somewhat of a blessing.

dear acidcow, when we said more pictures of dirty hookers, this isn't exactly what we meant.

so kind and generous, unless of course you're a homeless prostitute under 60 years old. then fuck off and die whore. so charitable.

I think it is a great idea, because many of them are not able to work anymore. Good that they can spend the rest of their life in peace. Always great to see that other people care for those in need.

touched my heart.... I've seen similar on Oahu where the aging Korean bar girls still try to wear the tight skirts and heels at 60+: It's sad, but it's all they know. This is an awesome effort and should be put into practice worldwide.
