De Wallen, toekomst van ons verleden (available in Dutch and English)
Mariska Majoor: “On the basis of personal memories of past times as a window prostitute and candid conversations about it with my twenty-two-year-old daughter Robin, I sketch a picture of the Red Light District and the influence that social discussion and political intervention have on this special neighborhood and its people.During a walk through the Red Light District described in the book, we talk with each other but also with Mayor Halsema, sex workers and brothel owners, residents, entrepreneurs and others who have something to do here. No subject goes undiscussed. Robin took photos of the area along the way that are depicted -in black and white- in the book.” – May 2020

Echte knuffels en meer… (only in Dutch available)
In her book “Echte knuffels en meer…” the Amsterdam native describes her experiences in a light-hearted, funny and above all non-pornographic way. Both the good and less fun sides of the profession are discussed. Even an intense confrontation with the municipality. The officials would rather have her behind a window in the Red Light District, but Jorma does not see herself there.
