Brothelville, America Tour 2012
Yesterday as we drove out from Las Vegas north on the 15, and then West out on the 95, we knew we were out in the desert but as we left civilization more and more it became apparent we were heading into the vast empty land of Area 51 and aliens we were also heading into what we affectionately term Brothelville, or Nye County, Nevada were there are now 7 legal houses of prostitution, bordellos, brothen, brothels.
What is a Brothel?
Bordello, from the Old French borde meaning hut. Brothel, from the Germanic-French brothen meaning go to ruin. These unique to Nevada business establishments are stringently regulated. Where such businesses can be located is determined by the county government. Some are found by themselves at lonely crossroads like Lida Junction, some are found in populated areas like Elko but none are found in heavily populated areas like Las Vegas or Reno.
Yesterday, we had the privilege to visit 6 brothels in Nye Co, Nevada.
1st stop: Bikinis. Bikinis opened last year and is the first of it’s kind in the area, in that it is a gentleman’s club and brothel. The two ladies working in the bar were nice enough, and seemed eager to talk to us, however, we were given the kibosh by their owner who despite the bar being totally empty said, “We’re trying to run a business here.” Bikinis is located at 100 Airport Rd, in Beatty, NV.
2nd stop: Angel’s Ladies. Angel’s Ladies serves no alcohol. Most of the brothels we’d been to had a full bar, this was the first of it’s kind. Angel's Ladies is an “Oasis in the Desert. With over 80 acres of land to hike and play in, a natural Hot Mineral Spring that feeds the 65,000 gallon Swimming Pool, trees and private bungalows. Angel's offers what no other Nevada Brothel can. Seclusion, privacy and Fun in the Sun with the Girl of your choice.” http://brothelangelsladies.com/tour.html And true to their calling we did find that they were the “ THE FRIENDLIEST BROTHEL IN NEVADA, AN OASIS IN THE DESERT!” Mac, the somewhat owner talked openly to us about his home and love for the place and the ladies were friendly and open.
Angel’s Ladies is located in Beatty, NV off the 95 Hwy.
Not all brothels are created equal, but they are all homes of legalized prostitution and that is a good thing.
