Topics – A mother decides her 22-year-old son’s been a virgin long enough.
A couple yearns for a little extramarital action. A pair of brothers hopes to live out their porn-star fantasy.
If they’ve got a credit card, it’s all there for the asking at Nevada’s Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel, where “It’s not just sex—it’s an adventure.”
HBO Video debuts the America Undercover Documentary Cathouse, which takes an in-depth look behind the closed doors of a renowned Nevada brothel. Available June 7, 2005, the DVD features an interview with brothel owner Dennis Hof.
Cathouse, which first premiered on HBO in December 2002, used hidden cameras to eavesdrop on intimate conversations and on the negotiations between “working girls” and their customers at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch located in a sparsely populated desert outside of Reno. A first-ever look at the inner sanctum of a legal brothel, the documentary captures everything from a nervous 19-year-old virgin, to a ménage à trois scenario, to the opportunity to fulfill celluloid dreams with stars of X-rated films.
Since prostitution was declared legal in a few Nevada counties in 1972, bustling brothels like the Moonlite Bunny Ranch have become a mecca for men and women looking to live out their sexual fantasies. Dennis Hof, owner and operator of the Bunny Ranch since 1992, has cleaned up and spiced up the ranch in an effort to attract a more upscale clientele of high rollers, as well as ordinary guys.
Suzette, the madam of the ranch, rules the roost and keeps the business running like clockwork. She pays close attention to the clients, makes sure the girls learn how to get the most for their services, and screens more than 30 calls each day from prospective employees. Cathouse features several working girls, such as Hof’s girlfriend, Sunset Thomas, a Penthouse Pet, porn star and the youngest inductee into the Adult Video Hall of Fame; “Airforce Aimee,” whose athleticism and enthusiasm offer up a veritable boot camp of sexual possibilities; Deana, a thoughtful and sweet blonde-next-door with a little something extra; “Julia,” a first-time working girl whose husband is home with the kids; and Felicia, a siren who thinks of herself as a “sex therapist.”
Cathouse is directed and produced by Patti Kaplan; conceived and produced by George Ciccarone; edited by Max Weissman; cinematography by Tom Hurwitz and Sandra Chandler. For HBO: supervising producer, Julie Anderson; executive producer, Sheila Nevins.
