Nevada Brothel Up For Sale
C'MON DUERS!! LET'S POOL OUR MONEY AND PICK UP THIS SUCKER!! :bounce:

<snip>

LAS VEGAS -- One of the best-known brothels in the business is up for sale, for just under $7 million.

Owner Ken Green says he's turning 63 -- and figures someone younger can build on the name and the reputation of the legal brothel 60 miles west of Las Vegas.

He bought the Chicken Ranch 22 years ago for $1.25 million from a guy who put it Nye County, Nev., and named it after the real-life "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" that closed in the 1970s.

Since then, Green says he's developed it from two double-wide trailers into a 40-acre spread with a bar, parlor, swimming pool and three bungalows with Wild West, jungle and Victorian themes.

Now, Green said he's got the name trademarked.

5. A friend of mine nearly did buy a NV brothel.
She was a successful escort service operator from Seattle. The problem is the politics. Owning a NV brothel is very much a "good old boy" affair. You have to be real chummy with the Sheriff and other local officials to make it work. Also, NV has very restrictive laws with regards the rights of the women (and only women; No male prostitution allowed) who work in the brothels. While they are working they cannot leave the place, basically. Typically, NV brothel owners use this to create a "company store" system where most of the worker's profits go back to the house to buy the things they need. It is very difficult for an average woman to make real money in a NV brothel. (Yes, some of the Penthouse models and porn stars make a mint, but the average worker cannot get fees as high as they can.)
