    I have never had a problem with this kinda thing, as long as its what the women and men actually want to do, like in amsterdam it is legal, but its controlled, they need to be registered and have checks on themselves and the security there is very good. its wrong when this is something they have been forced to do and it hurts them. Like prostitution in the street, where the girls end up seriously hurt alot of the time, and don`t want to be there but it`s the only way they can survive..
    i think thats wrong and help should always be available to them.
    Basically my point being, whatever floats your boat, as long as noone gets hurt :)

    VVV..tuttuttut...tut.....tut

    Bye ScaryMeadow,

    I always think that you should do what you want or needs to be done. Prostitution is no exception, I`m sure it`s a great way to make money. The noly thing that I was ever concerned about was that street hookers are often hurt or killed. But in a brothel it`s very organized so I thing this is a great idea for the women who have lost their jobs.

    They could have just said that the porn industry is taking a step back in time because of the recession.

    It was to be expected.

    Last I heard, Amsterdam was having some problems with its red light district (a sudden increase in crime, and decrease in overall prostitution). Still allowing prostitution and pot, of course, the city is just changing it a bit for safety precautions and such. I have no problem with prostitution. Brothels are a good thing. : )

    I think I`ll go watch the Penn & Teller: Bull$#*t! episode on prostitution now. : D

    Wait, how could the porn industry not be doing so good now too? I thought people were always into f^<king. ; )

    Legal prostitution is safer for everyone involved. Blue laws are pointless: if no one is getting hurt (and in this case, the LAW is what`s getting people hurt) then why is it illegal?

    Oh yeah, that`s right, it`s because so-called "moral" groups in the US (who have proved themselves hypocrites time and time again) aren`t content to live their own lives...they need to control everyone else`s lives too!

    I love the town I live in. and...

    s0236078: "one problem....if people have less money are they really going to go splash some cash on a girl? and i never really knew that prostitutes were in short demand anyway"

    Doesn`t matter where you go, there will be a demand for sex. Always has and always will be. Plus, the people spending the money on women are the ones who really aren`t in any financial trouble to begin with, as some brothels are pretty damned expensive, also, there`s the tourism angle. If they were poor, they`d be out meeting women the way most average people do... going to coffee shops, book stores, parks, the gym, whatever.

    "shadow, i thought they get tested like evry month

    They do. In Nevada, where prostitution`s legal, you have to get a prostitution license in order to get hired in a brothel, and you have to get STD tested every month in order to keep that license valid.

    If you don`t, your license expires and you can`t legally work as a prostitute.

    The whole movie business, period, is not doing so good because of the recession. Also, illegal downloading. XD

    Why buy porn when you can watch it streaming off of some free site?

    The red light district in Amsterdam might be getting shut down and a new one built some where else which will have more police patrols. This was talked about ages ago sooo... Besides prostitution is the worlds oldest job its nice to see people take a bigger interest in history

    Well what if she got it after the test and you did her? That`s something hard to explain to your girl/wife.
    "They said she got tested! She got tested! Don`t leave me!!!! I didn`t mean to give you AIDS!!"
    I may be the only one, but if I`m gonna `do it` with someone, it`s gonna be with someone I love. Not try to get some cheap sex. Thats my opinion.

    YAY!!! MY HOMETOWN! Yes. This is real. Mustang is about 20 min from the University in Reno. Bunny I believe is in Pahrump.

    Every career day at UNR, the Mustang Ranch would come like every other business to recruit. Boy I kinda miss the days before I transferred.

    simim23: No no no!

    Don`t confuse people.

    There are only CERTAIN counties where prostitution is legal.

    Clark County(Las Vegas, Henderson, the Valleys) are OFF LIMITS.

    Washoe, which is more where Mustang is, is Legal.

    Parump, also outside Vegas is Legal.

    My home isn`t ALL hookers and blow....

    Also, it`s legal to sell things (but not drugs), and it`s legal to have sex (between two consenting adults), so why isn`t it legal to sell sex?

    Wow, I don`t see how everyone thinks this is a good thing. Doesn`t anyone see a problem with the objectification of women? It seems females get less and less respect and are only worth what a male thinks of their bodies. I think it`s disgusting, and it even says in the video they are going because of economic pressures. What does that say? "I know it is humiliating and depreciating but i really need the money." It`s absolutely horrible :(

    Excuse me blue beard-
    you could give a girl all the movies and dinners u want but that don`t mean that`s the reason she`s shagging you.
    Do men have a problem with relationships or summin?
    It wouldn`t matter how much i needed the money i would NEVER go into that.

    Well done Cheese, these women are only worth the £20 they get

    these women make a LOT of money. you`re lucky to get them to turn a trick for $100.

    and why is it ok for the big cats to make money by scamming and paying their employees pennies? seriously, focus on the real issues in america, because women making money for sex certainly isn`t a big one. atleast they`re helping the economy, however minutely, (its hardly small at all, considering the bunny ranch is world famous and has its own series.) cha-ching!

    Lol, I forgot to mention that.

    Your county in Nevada has to have under 600,000 people living in it in order for prostitution to be legal. XD
