Brothel

A house of lewdness or ill fame; a house frequented by prostitutes; a bawdyhouse.

Bat-House

A house of prostitution.

Crib-house

Dictionary definition of crib means a place where one lies down, a crib-house was a one of the worst houses where women and children were kept confined to one small room and a bed.

House of Ill Repute

Brothel

Cat House

A house of prostitution.

Parlour Houses

Higher end brothels, where sexual acts were not always available but the company of attractive and smart women was purchased.

Fandangoes

Dance Halls

Pimp

Manager of a prostitute, often taking all profits and enforcing his power through abuse or drugs.

Madame

A female owner of a brothel or hotel, manager of the women offered. There is no reason to believe that working for a Madame was not as much a form of enslavement as working for a pimp. In some cases women were sold into houses and they lived in a form of slavery to the house, forever having to pay for her room and board, clothing and food at inflated prices that insured her debt to the Madame.

John

A person who pays for sexual acts.

Hootchie

A loose or promiscuous woman.

Lavabeds

South of Yesler, Seattle's red light district.

Flesh Avenue

1st Avenue, Seattle.

Cafe la Mama

A term from the 1970's for women's breasts.

Illahee

Meeting place in Chinook Jargon. The name of John Pinnell's brothel on 1st and Yesler.

Sawdust Girl

A woman who worked at the Illahee.

Prostitution

A trade that men and women are employed in for which they exchange money for sexual acts. Notice that I did not say "make money", as it is not always true that men and women performing the acts receive the money.

Prostitute

A Person, more often a woman, who receives profit from sexual service, one who lives partly or wholly on prostitution.(I have a problem with this definition as the prostitute, in the end, does not always receive the money. In brothels there was a coin that was issued to a john that had a monetary value. He would purchase these coins and use them as payment to a prostitute, insuring that she was not the one to receive cash. She was paid by the house.)

Tramp

A prostitute, vagrant or person regarded as promiscuous.

Some of the definitions acquired here came from the on-line dictionary SEX LEXIS
