“Prostitution is hard, if not impossible, to eradicate. Everywhere men (and women) seek sexual gratification and are willing to pay for it. Accordingly, every society has to compromise, to find a way to contain this “necessary evil.”
On Christmas Day, December 25th, 1970 prostitution became legal in Nevada . Because a brothel owner had been paying $1000 a month to keep his prostitution business operating, the state passed a piece of legislation to explain where the money was coming from. Thus, brothel licensing was born.
Although prostitution is now legal in Nevada , it is still not widely accepted. Legalization becomes regulation, sometimes strict regulation. For example, the second act of legislators was to outlaw any brothel existing where there was a population of 200,000 or more people.
Brothels are the only place where sex can be bought and sold. Prostitution is only legal in Nevada , though the “street walking” form of prostitution is still illegal. For a relatively big state (area wise) such as Nevada , Reno , Las Vegas , Carson City or Lake Tahoe is off limits for brothels. The desert, far away from the rest of civilization, is the only place prostitution and brothels are allowed to exist. Even then, they are not allowed to advertise.
On top of legislative laws and public scrutiny, brothels have their own rules inside the house. Only a few brothels permit a couple to hire a prostitute, then the cost is nearly double, even if the wife only watches. Also, in some brothels, it is illegal for a woman to enter a brothel and solicit sex from another prostitute. Pretty strict rules for places that average $150 – $500 a visit!
