Alicia Davis and Charlotte Coulson, both 22, allegedly hacked at Michael Kerr's neck at least 11 times, severing his jugular vein and stabbed him repeatedly in the chest.
Coulson had earlier texted the 30-year-old victim, saying: "Leisha (Davis) needs to prostitute herself for 30-40 quid so know anyone?"
Mr Kerr, from Dover, initially offered £20 and later picked up both girls in his orange Renault Clio, the Old Bailey heard.
The pair then allegedly set upon Mr Kerr, who had learning difficulties, in the early hours of April 10 - knocking out two of his teeth, cutting his throat and knifing him repeatedly.
His lifeless body was later found dumped on the ground beside his car in Satmar Lane, Capel-le-Ferne.
The pair claimed Mr Kerr tried to rape Davis, but prosecutor Sarah Whitehouse said they concocted their "wicked story to exonerate themselves".
She added the pair, who knew each other for only a few weeks, planned the attack and took several knives with them.
Mr Kerr, a former Harbour School pupil, was born with a chromosomal condition - Fragile Syndrome - that meant he had learning difficulties, spoke with a stammer and had a limp, the court heard.
He lived with his grandparents at King's Ropewalk, Aycliffe. Davis, of Milner Crescent, Aylesham, and Coulson, of Clarendon Street, Dover, both deny murder. The trial continues.
