A Red Light District is a place where prostitution is common. The phrase was based in the Bible where Rahab, a prostitute in Jericho, aided Joshua's spies with a red light.

Interestingly enough, the Japanese word "akasen" (red-line district) is of equal meaning to a red-light district.

Guy 2: Well.. all of the cities you've visited.. they are all red-light districts. I'm sure you had a real "good" time there.

A Red Light District is a section of town usually devoted to prostitution or other illegal/immoral behavior. Red Light Districts are usually found in larger cities, although some smaller towns might as well be Red Light Districts because the prostitution is so heavy anyway.
