Let’s Go Fishing by Harley Lane

The snow has melted, the weather is beautiful, and the fish are biting. It is Summer time in Nevada!

Being a country girl from Texas I absolutely love being outdoors no matter what activity I am doing but one of my favorite past times since I was a little girl is to go fishing. Whether it is sitting on a dock chatting about everything and nothing while fishing for Perch or a deep sea adventure I love all types of fishing. I even catch my own bait and bait my own hook! I am not one of those sissy girly types that won’t get dirty or is afraid to touch a bug or worm.

One of the great things about this area of Nevada is that there are so many fun things to do and enjoy and among those is the world class fishing and water-sports available a short ride away at Lake Tahoe, Pyramid Lake, the Carson River, Truckee River, Walker River and many more. I have been fishing several times at Lake Tahoe for Mackinaw Trout. Not only is it one of the most beautiful and picturesque lakes in the country it is also has great fishing.

A few interesting facts about Lake Tahoe:

  1. Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States and the tenth deepest in the world, with a maximum depth measured at 1,645 ft (501 m), and average depth of 1,000 ft (305 m).
  2. Lake Tahoe is the highest lake of its size in the United States with an average surface elevation of 6,225 ft (1,897 m) above sea level,
  3. Lake Tahoe is 2/3 in California and 1/3 in the state of Nevada
  4. The water is 99.994% pure, making it one of the purest large lakes in the world. For comparison, commercially distilled water is 99.998% pure.
  5. The sun shines at Lake Tahoe for 75% of the year, or 274 days.
  6. The amount of water that evaporates from the Lake each day (330 million gallons) could supply a city the size of Los Angeles for 5 years.
  7. If the Willis (formerly Sears) Tower, the tallest building in North America, were dropped into Lake Tahoe at its deepest point, the top would still be submerged by 195 feet of water. The average depth is about 1,000 feet.
  8. The Lake holds about 39 trillion gallons of water, enough to cover the state of California to a depth of 14½ inches.
  9. Lake Tahoe is over 2 million years old. It’s considered an ancient lake and is counted among the 20 oldest lakes in the world.
  10. Lake Tahoe was originally named “Da ow a ga” by a Washoe tribe of Native Americans. Pioneers who arrived later mispronounced the name as “Da ow,” which eventually evolved into Tahoe. Da ow a ga” originally meant Edge of Lake.

Lake Tahoe is full of various sport fish species, including lake trout — also known as the mackinaw — rainbow trout, brown trout and kokanee salmon, to name a few.

What could be more fun and relaxing than a beautiful sunny day on the water, taking in the amazing view and some great fishing while we enjoy each other’s company? Afterwards we can take our catch to one of several restaurants around the lake that will clean and prepare our catch for a delicious dinner or we could take the Evening Dinner Cruise on one of the lake’s Paddle Boats and enjoy a romantic dinner while seeing the sights then topping the night off with dessert and some sexy fun in my private suite.

If the lake isn’t your thing then how about a quiet day at the river filled with fishing for Rainbow and Brown Trout, splashing in the water and a delicious picnic lunch cooked by me? I am waiting on that special someone to come make this day possible. Will it be you? I sure hope so 😉

Let me Nurture your Spirit with essential oils!

I am not a doctor and these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA. This blog post is here for entertainment value 🙂 and I have no intention to heal, treat, cure, or diagnose with my methods. Consult your doctor before starting any regimen that might be potentially helpful and awesome for you!

 

So let’s start with some basic facts to start!

Essential oils:

  • Have been used for centuries as a holistic treatment to enhance emotional and physical well-being
  • Have fascinating aromatic qualities
  • Exist primarily as qualities that help protect the plants
  • Have history as alternative medicine
  • Known to Induce relaxation, clarity, focus, and other desired effects
  • Are extracted from various parts of plants, including bark, berries, flowers, leaves, peel, resin, rhizome, roots, and seeds
  • Can be breathed in, ingested, or applied directly to the skin

You may, or may not be surprised to know how widely-accepted the use of essential oils has become. Licensed masseuses, professional acupuncturists, and certified yoga instructors use these special oils as tools to enhance their work.

 

By integrating oils into the healing modality, (let’s say sex-therapy in my case), the energy and balance which is cultivated in the session will be enhanced with longer-lasting stability and feel-good effects. The oils interact holistically within our bodies at the cellular level.

These stable molecules are lipid soluble and therefore, rapidly are absorbed and accepted into the body. When I worked for an herbalist back home I learned to appreciate that holistic plant medicine is not forceful, but instead it gently assists the body in it’s optimal functioning. The body is able to pick and use what it needs and is able to dispel the rest.

Personally, I like to add a few drops of my essential oil to a palmful of sweet almond oil to create a uniquely rockin’ massage oil. When I massage the oils into the skin, (I like to do the temples, chest, and bottoms of the feet) I am giving you Instant benefits because the body pulls the oils in due to increased blood flow in these areas.

That sweet stimuli of touch is my secret to meaningful and memorable moments here at the ranch. Warm touch invites a sense of connection and trust.

 

I take you into my room and ask you to select what kind of feeling you would like: Uplifting, Invigorating, or Calming.

From there, I will walk over to my oils box and select a couple of options for you to smell, perhaps a cedar wood and a juniper balancing mix if you ask to feel calm, strong, and rooted. If you are looking to ‘wake up!’ Peppermint and citrus smell are my classic go-to. For a sexy, subtle and sultry experience, I often favor ylang ylang and jasmine. I also have a cocoa smelling oil for a really nice treat!

I like diffuse the oil throughout the air for a divine aromatic experience.

Certain essential oils have proven to enhance the libido. They reduce stress and can regulate hormones. I insist that my clients’ exit my space in a more healthy, happy and balanced state then when they first arrive. The usage of essential oils, paired with my down-to earth, sweet caring vibes do just that.

Rose Oil, Bold and Daring: It is no wonder why the exchange roses are so popular among lovers. Rose oil is utilized for it aphrodisiac and calming qualities.

Jasmine Oil, Unique, Balancing and Exotic: The flowers of the jasmine plant are quite warm and sensual. I use to enhance a romantic encounter and increase attraction. Pure Jasmine oil will refresh the senses and enhance alertness.

Clary Sage, Balancing and Soothing: When hormonal imbalances are at play, clary sage provides a homeopathic approach to return to balance. Clary Sage can uplift a cloudy mood.

Yang Ylang, Rich and Invigorating: With a gentle floral scent that appeals to most; it elevates sexual energy often can be paired with a sandalwood to create an earthy invitation.

Neroli, Intense and Uplifting: This scent is derived from the orange blossoms and increases sexual desire. Neroli also is a stress reliever and hormone balancer.

Fennel, Sweet and Spicy: Increases libido due to some estrogenic effects. It’s usage supports the female body in it’s unique systems

 

I love essential oils and I think that you will too.

I can’t wait to see which ones you choose!

Let’s Cook Korean Bibimbap & Potstickers with Ava Carter

 

In my previous Bunny Ranch Blog post (HapaToki), I discussed my passion for music and the incredible significance and awesomeness of KPop (Korean Pop) worldwide. Not to mention, I also wrote and produced a song called, ‘HapaToki,’ and made a music video for it right here at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch!

However, it’d be unconscionable as a half-Korean American to overlook one of the most important characteristics of Korean Culture, and that is the FOOD!

I genuinely delight in celebrating my Korean heritage (and all cultures across the globe, for that matter), and I’ve always loved cooking (especially Korean food), so I thought it’d be so much fun to show you how to cook a couple of very popular Korean dishes: Bibimbap and pork / veggie potstickers!

‘Bibim’ means ‘mixed’ and ‘bap’ means ‘rice.’ Potstickers are called ‘mandu’ in Korea. The beauty of these dishes is that they can be altered to your preference. For instance, Bibimbap can incorporate any combination of sautéed protein / veggies of your choice (such as beef, onions, zucchini, and kimchi), all of which are presented beautifully on top of a large bowl of white rice. Then, placed on the very top is an over-easy egg and a dab (or lots) of red pepper sauce called ‘Gochujang’. There are also many kinds of potstickers (mandu), such as veggie, chicken, pork, and even spicy kimchi, traditionally served as an appetizer / side dish with soy sauce for dipping.

For the sake of ensu­ring we will have pl­enty of time and ene­rgy to enjoy one ano­ther’s company in and beyond the kitchen (teehee!), I opted for simple, healthy, and delicious dishes that incorporate ingredients commonly used in Korean cuisi­ne. Fun fact: these ingredients (ex: gar­lic and red peppers) also serve as natur­al aphrodisiacs. Nee­dless to say, once we finish our delicio­us meals, we can take full advantage of the power of mouthwash be­fore the ultimate fun begins! LOL

I hope you’ll consider spending time cooking with me, or simply enjoy a home-cooked Korean meal created with lots of tenderness, care, and love by yours truly.

Bibimbap (vegetarian) & Fried Potstickers (aka Mandu)

Ingredients:

1 cup of short grain white rice
2 cups mung bean sprouts
1 cup shiitake mushrooms
1 cup of peeled julienne / shredded carrots
1 cup of kimchi (store bought or homemade)
¾ teaspoon sesame oil (divided)
5 teaspoons vegetable oil (divided)
2 large brown eggs
1 package of potstickers (any flavor of your choice)
½ cup of finely chopped garlic

For garnish:

1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed (divided)
½ teaspoon of Korean red pepper chili sauce (aka Gochujang) (divided)

Directions:

Rinse and drain the white rice thoroughly under cold water until the rice water is no longer milky white (or appears to be clear). Combine with 1¼ cup of water in a large pot and bring to a boil. Once it begins to boil, cover with a lid and adjust heat to low. Let it cook for approx. 20 minutes. Once finished, set aside and gently fluff the rice with a fork. Keep covered.

As the rice cooks, begin prepping veggies by rinsing thoroughly under cold water. Bring a separate pot of water to a boil and add the mung bean sprouts. You’re only blanching them, so do not let them boil any longer than 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.

Remove stems from the shiitake mushrooms and slice into ¼’ to ½’ thick pieces. Peel and julienne / shred the carrots. Peel and finely chop garlic. Set all veggies aside.

To speed up the cooking process, heat a few large pans over low – medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil to each pan. Divide the chopped garlic among each pan and saute for approximately 1 min. Add veggies and ¼ teaspoon of sesame oil to each pan. Add ½ teaspoon of soy sauce to the shiitake mushrooms. Cook all veggies for approx 4 min, or until tender. Set aside.

In a separate pan, heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Add potstickers and gently fry for 5 minutes on each side (or until golden brown) over medium heat. Prep a large plate for the potstickers by placing a paper towel overtop (this will help remove any excess oil). Once the potstickers are evenly cooked, remove from pan. Once the excess oil is removed, discard paper towels and serve with soy sauce for dipping.

In a separate pan, add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and heat over low – medium heat. Carefully crack open each egg, ensuring the yoke stays intact. Cook over low heat.

As the egg slowly cooks, place rice in two large bowls. Fun fact: it’s common to see this dish served in a large metal bowl or in a hot stone / granite bowl, which allows you to thoroughly combine everything together! When served in the stone bowl, the rice continues to cook on the bottom and becomes crispy. Yum! The granite bowl version is called ‘Dolsot Bibimbap’.

Next, place veggies (including kimchi) overtop the rice. At this point, the eggs should be cooked ‘over easy’. Gently transfer the eggs over the veggies and rice and garnish with the red pepper sauce and toasted sesame seed. Serve alongside the potstickers. Break the yoke and mix everything up together!

Once mixed, you’ve officially created and tasted the deliciousness of Korean mixed rice, Bibimbap!

So YUMMY! I hope you enjoy!

HISTORY AND FACTS OF THE LYON COUNTY BROTHELS BY MADAM SUZETTE

Thank you all in advance for reading my post, I want to introduce myself as we have not yet met. After you are done reading this post you will know me well. 

I am not one to go out and publicly speak, I tend to concentrate on managing our business’s instead. But, I did want to come forward on this subject instead of answering a question or stating something here and there.  It took me a while to gather up the history and facts about the Lyon County brothels and have posted this letter in multiple social media platforms to better educate the public on how the brothels work and what the procedures are. No one has better knowledge on this subject than myself, after all, I am the general manager of all the Lyon County brothels and have been since Feb. 1993. I understand you are already aware of some of the items but maybe some items you are not aware of that I would like to share.

I have listed a little of the history and facts of the brothels because I am sure that the general public is unaware of where it all started. 

History of Lyon County Brothels

  • 1955 Moonlight Ranch
  • 1970 Starlight Ranch and is moved and renamed Miss Kitty’s Guest Ranch
  • 1971 Prostitution became legal
  • 1992 Dennis Hof purchases Moonlight and becomes The Moonlight BunnyRanch
  • 1996 Dennis Hof purchases Miss Kitty’s Guest Ranch
  • 2013 Dennis Hof purchases SageBrush Ranch
  • 2016 Dennis Hof opens Kit Kat Ranch

Please refer to Lyon County Business and License regulations to be able to own and have a brothel license

Not everyone who applies can get one. It’s an extensive federal background check.

  • 1992 Sheriff Sid Smith approves Dennis Hof to have a brothel license.
  • 2011 Sheriff Allen Veil approves Suzette Cole to be on all Lyon County brothels licenses after reviewing extensive back ground check. Investigation reporting fees are $4,000 paid by submitted.

License and Business fees that are paid Annually

  • Business Licenses $356,000
  • Room and board tax $12,000
  • Silver Springs medical Center $26,000
  • Over $50,000 for licenses for employees and working girls
  • Employees and Working girls who live in Lyon County pay personal taxes.

Statement from Jeff Page, Lyon County Executive

June 2010 to present

“Brothels don’t pay business taxes, but contribute nearly $500,000 in other fees to the county which goes toward paying the county fleet of vehicles. With only 52,000 residents, the county would be hard pressed to make up that revenue if the brothels were banned. From a financial perspective, it means it has to come from someplace else.” 

That place would be coming from the Lyon County citizen’s pockets. 

Some have stated that we are only 1% of the yearly budget, this is just not true.  The yearly budget is 30 million, but first all mandatory bills and expenses have to be paid out of that budget.  For instance, all county employee’s salaries and county expenses  etc;  have to come right off the top.  Then after those are paid thats when our fees  that we pay in are factored and it’s more like 30 % of the left over budget.   

Sheriff Sid Smith and Sheriff Allen Veil neither had an issue with the brothels in Lyon County. Is it to be said that Sheriff Smith, Sheriff Veil and the previous sheriffs did not know what was best for their county? Seems people are trying to force their religion upon others. I believe in freedom of speech and the freedom of religion.

Lyon County Brothels are the biggest donators in the County

  • Animal parks
  • Food banks
  • Sheriff’s ARK program
  • Boys and girls club
  • High School
  • Toys for Tots
  • Personal hardships and numerous others.

We always have had a donation box in the foyers of all our ranches to give back to the community. Over the years it has added up into tens of thousands of dollars. 

Please refer to Lyon County Legal Prostitution Fees and Requirements for a legal prostitute to get her license, She first has to have a

  • Hepatitis test, which is done once a year.
  • HIV and Syphilis tests, which are done once a month
  • Chlamydia and gonorrhea tests, which are done once a week.

All these fees are paid for by the working girl, that goes into hundreds of thousands of dollars a year which are handled through the Silver Springs Renown Medical Center on top of the $26K that we pay towards every year. That keeps the medical center open for all the Lyon County citizens to be able to visit.     

After the lab tests has come back with negative results, the working girl goes to the sheriff’s station and fills out an application.

Lyon County has the strictest rules out of all the counties in Nevada to be able to obtain a sheriff’s card. It is easier to become a Lyon County Deputy than it is to become a legal prostitute.

And more importantly, there has NEVER EVER been a case of HIV positive in the history of legalized prostitution and you cannot say that about any other profession in the United States. Lyon County has been doing it right by legalizing it and regulating it.

I have never in the 26 years of working in the brothels have never tried to recruit a lady to work here. They all have contacted us. I receive over 1,500 emails a month from ladies who want to work. The ladies are never held against their will. They can come and go as they please. They are never asked to do something that they don’t want to on any level.

Current history and facts in Las Vegas, NV on Illegal prostitution.

  • More than 3,000 active pimps and over 32,000 girls come to Las Vegas to be in illegal prostitution.
  • 300 girls under the age of 16 that are being trafficking all the time.
  • Sexually transmitted diseases as HIV are the highest in Las Vegas than any other city.
  • Unsafe for customers and girls who are in illegal prostitution. Rapes, trafficking, scams, theft, drugs and of course, murder.

IF the brothels are banned, those numbers will surely go up.

Brief Summary of Dennis Hof

Born in Arizona in 1947, he comes from a hard working lower class family. His mother worked in the school cafeterias and his father was a mail man. Dennis always had worked all his life for the better life.

He has worked and purchased many gas stations in the Arizona, Lake Tahoe and Reno areas. He became involved with the time share condo business and saved up enough money to purchase the Moonlight BunnyRanch. A legal business in which he saw could make it a better place.

You can read all about his life in his autobiography, The Art of a Pimp. A no holds bar about his life. What you see what you get. He has no secrets. He has made himself a self made millionaire by being the media genius with his unique business sense.

Brief Summary of Suzette Cole

Born in Oakland 1955, moved to Lake Tahoe in the late fifties. She was always in business with her family and had a business sense and worked well with others. Worked as a cocktail waitress at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe for several years in the mid eighties and was top trainer and spokes person for the new hires for the entire human resource dept.

Moved to Carson City from Lake Tahoe. In Feb 1993, answered a little ad in the newspaper stated hostess wanted. Curiously she applied and started as a hostess, bartender, cashier, asst. manager and general manger to present, opening up all of Dennis’s brothels over the years.

The Banning of Lyon County Brothels

Every once in a while we have a few people who want the brothels gone. But this time, it has been politically targeted personally towards Dennis Hof.

First off, the “No little girl “ committee is based out of Reno. Why are they not targeting the Mustang Ranch? Because they said themselves, they want Dennis Hof out of business. They say no local big businesses want to be in the same county. What about Telsa next to Mustang Ranch? On their website, they have faq’s.  They made up the questions, then they made up the answers. If they were to ask me the same questions, they would get different answers.  They are talking about illegal prostitution.  You can not compare the illegal and legal prostitution.  It is apples and oranges.

The ladies, employees, and all the people in Lyon County have their own religion. One religion is not better than another. But most importantly, they all come from the same core belief, Do good, be good within our hearts.

There’s a reason why The County Commissioners are in position. They get all the facts then they vote to make the right decision. The public does not have all the facts and are not educated enough to be able to make that decision. What happens when the public wants to out law guns? Liquor, gaming, whats next, the color that you wear? Are they going to vote that people can’t wear black after 8pm? What about religion and race? Is that next that it has to be a certain religion or race to be able to live in Lyon County? That appears to be the route that this is going.

People make statements that just are not true about legal prostitution and others automatically believe what they hear.

For instance there is a girl named Rebekah Charleston who is working with No little Girl, and I have no idea who she is. I personally not ever seen her before and do not recall her working with us. I have had our accounting department run her name and nothing comes up. If she did come out here it was not long enough to receive a tax form.

Another is a person named Deanne Holliday.  She is a disgruntled former employee who has been spreading lies about us and the brothels for years. People say something and people automatically believe that it is gospel.

If it goes on the ballot, and if the brothels are shut down, they take it out of the commissioner’s hands, they have to wait until the next vote goes back on the ballot on the following year. And the Commissioner’s hands are tied even to vote on the smallest issue.  Which doesn’t make too much sense.  Especially, when it might be an urgent situation that has to be resolved quickly.   

We employ over 550 independent contractors every year and over 125 employees. They are dependent on their jobs to take care of themselves and their families. We have employees that have been with us over 15 years and longer. We do business with the local businesses in Lyon County because we want to keep it in the community.

“No little Girl” states, the prostitutes will just go home. No, they won’t, the ladies will go out on the streets and get caught up in the illegal side of prostitution. That’s why the girls come here to the brothels in the first place, to try and do the right thing and be legal. Prostitution is the oldest profession and it will not go away, this is why Lyon County legalized it so that way it can be regulated and keep it under control.

The Working Girls are here to make a better life for themselves, their children and their families. They are going to school, getting Masters Degrees, buying homes, putting their children through school, taking care of their families. How and Why do I know this? Because it has been my life, my whole life for the last 26 years. I do not have a husband or a boyfriend. I have no children, these girls are my children and family. I work hard and I keep a tight ship. I do not have a record or issues with the Law, not even a parking ticket. I respect the law and live a clean life. I do not drink, smoke and have a zero tolerance on all drugs. The ladies respect me as their Mother, because in a way I am their mother and do not pass any judgment upon them. I do not allow excess drinking and any drug of any kind is intolerable, even marijuana. I do not allow on the property among the girls and clients. They are not even allowed to cuss in the parlor, this includes the clients as well. I do not let things get out of control because I am always in control of it in the first place.

I have never let a girl work that did not have a sheriff’s card or was not cleared from the doctor first. I would never put our brothel licenses in jeopardy. And yes, we have to coordinate the doctor visits with the lab results and with the sheriffs station. And if one doesn’t come through, they will have to wait. The ladies come from all over the country, sometimes they fly in and have to wait until they are cleared. This can sometimes up to a week if something falls thru the cracks. These are good girls, they have all passed the federal background check and have no diseases.

We check ID’s of all our customers to ensure they are of legal age to walk inside and also to drink, this is true for the ladies as well.

Sadly, people tend to be hypocrites. They go on dates, they have dinner, give flowers and then have sex after their date. That seems to be ok in people’s eyes but when the almighty dollar is exchanged, all of a sudden its bad. Lyon County has been doing it right since 1971 when they took it out of the criminal’s hands and put it into a highly regulated industry.

I have meetings called Tea Parties every week with the Ladies, where we bring in business people to help them succeed; bankers, insurance, accounting executives, and more to help them with their every day lives.

We celebrate birthdays every week and some of the girls say this is the first time that they have ever had a birthday cake or a party.

We have craft days where the girls get to just have fun and we even have karaoke so the girls and the clients can sing their little hearts out.  We have clients come in here just to celebrate their birthdates, the clients are also considered family. We treat people with respect and never judge anyone by race, gender, religion, or anything else.

Thank you again for taking the time to read this. I know all of you are very busy and it means a lot to be able to voice not only my opinions but the Facts.

When You Grow Up Around A Legal Brothel, Sometimes You Just Start Working There

Legal prostitution was always in my life.  I grew up in northern Nevada, just down the road from several of the state’s best known bordellos.  My aunt worked at The Sagebrush Ranch, and some of my earliest memories are of riding with my grandmother to go pick her up from work.  She would call ahead from the car when we were about 10 minutes away, and the back gate would be opened up so we could pull up to the rear of the building.  We would go in through the kitchen, and all of the “working girls” would be covered up in their robes, always excited to see me.  While we were waiting for my aunt to gather her things, I would sit on a stool at the kitchen counter and drink a Shirley Temple while I dangled my legs that had not yet grown long enough to touch the ground from a chair.  The ladies would put cartoons on the television for me, and just like that, I would be a happy kid having a normal childhood experience in the back room of a  brothel (paging Richard Pryor…)  The girls would give me dollar bills and I felt rich.  That is the first time that I remember having a sense of the value of money, and that sense would serve me well once I returned to the brothels as an adult.
As I grew into my teens, I was seduced by HBO’s slate of late night adult programming.  Too young to watch by most parents’ standards (including my own), I had to wait until my parents had gone to sleep and sneak back in to the living room to tune in to the forbidden land of late night cable television.  Back in those days, HBO aired entire blocks of adult oriented shows, including “Real Sex”, “Taxi Cab Confessions”, and “Cathouse” (the reality show based around the business at Dennis Hof’s Bunny Ranch legal brothel).  While the other two shows were set in different parts of the country and seemed to a girl from Yerington, Nevada as though they might as well have taken place in other countries or on other planets, “Cathouse” was filmed just down the road from me, and I was fascinated with the idea that television magic was being created right in my own back yard.  I liked the girls on the show, and I especially liked Dennis, who was the central figure that the whole business seemed to revolve around.
Lots of people follow relatives into family businesses, and I guess you could say that I’m no different.  Where the difference lies, however, is that my family’s history of prostitution has been a legal one.  It’s always been safe, clean, and profitable.  Most importantly, it’s been fun.  I actually enjoy my job, and one thing that interacting with a variety of clients has taught me is that that is rarely the case for most other professionals.  The overwhelming majority of people work at their jobs so that they can enjoy life once they get off work…I go to work so that I can enjoy getting off, while I’m earning that living at the same time.  Do the math, and you’ll see that I’m living twice the life I would be otherwise, were I in a job that I hated, or at best tolerated.  
Life is too short to spend time doing things you don’t like.  Come see me at the Love Ranch Vegas, and let’s spend time doing something that we like together.

You may think that seeing a professional courtesan in a legal brothel would not necessarily contribute to finding the relationship of your dreams; however, nothing could be further from the truth! Of course, don’t take this the wrong way: hoping your lady of choice at the brothel is going to fall in love with you is not the way to approach things. She’s a professional offering her services, after all! However, what you may never have considered are all the ways that seeing her can facilitate your pursuit of lifelong happiness in your real-world relationships.

Exploring your options while dating, before you are ready to settle down, can be complicated! Having a brothel girlfriend means you can still experience intimacy while proceeding to pursue your ideal relationship without complications or jealousy. She is there to provide wonderful experiences, not to compete for you against other women in your life. When you do find success in your relationships, she will be thrilled to hear things are going well for you in your personal life!

Having a brothel girlfriend can motivate you to take better care of yourself. If you are being intimate with someone, you ideally want to be in your best shape for your mutual enjoyment, right? The motivation to eat healthier and work out more so you are in better shape when you come to visit and spend time with her spills over benefits into the rest of your life. This will increase your attractiveness to women in the outside world. (Do you know that men in relationships are actually more attractive than lonely ones?) The happier and healthier you are, the more you will attract the woman you want!

Having a brothel girlfriend will improve your mood and prevent you from making poor decisions based on desperation. If you are sexually frustrated, you may seek out women who otherwise wouldn’t be up to your standards, and unintentionally embroil yourself in emotional tangles you had no intention of getting into. Knowing you have a gorgeous lady waiting for you whenever you wish allows you to be much more confident when choosing women to pursue in the outside world.

Having a brothel girlfriend allows you to practice your bedroom skills and expand your sexual repertoire. Because it is an emotionally neutral space, you can ask for and get real feedback from a courtesan which someone you are dating (or married to) may be afraid to give you for fear of hurting your feelings or causing discord. Women, of course, prefer men who are experienced and skilled in the bedroom, so this will go a long way in your future relationships! (Remember, you don’t save yourself for “the one,” you practice for “the one!”)

Think of your brothel visits in terms of therapy and self-care. Taking care of your needs will improve how you view yourself as a person and how you approach others. You deserve to treat yourself a guaranteed wonderful time that you have more than earned in exchange for all your hard work. Furthermore, seeing a professional means you are not going to waste time trying to hook up with women who may not be interested, who may not be as enthusiastic or skilled in the bedroom as you would like, or who may come with a host of demands far more complex than a clear-cut exchange of currency.

If you find it challenging to keep your emotions in check when spending time with a beautiful lady, another great idea is to mix it up a little. To make sure you don’t let your emotions get too far in control and that you keep the door open to receiving the real relationship you are looking for, it can be a good idea to see more than one lady. Threesomes are not only a great fantasy to fulfill, they help keep you from letting your thoughts get clouded by infatuation instead of focused on your goals and the pure enjoyment of the moment.

If you were unsure about visiting the Bunny Ranch because what you want is a real relationship, I hope this has assuaged your concerns and you now see just how many ways we can support your quest for love. May you find “the one” and live happily ever after!

Nevada and the State of Freedom — “No Little Girl’s” Attack On Legal Brothels

What makes Nevada special? I discovered the answer to that question a few years back when I met with a young documentary filmmaker at a watering hole on the outskirts of the dusty town of Pahrump in Nye County. The filmmaker was making a documentary for CMT.

Over a beer, I asked the filmmaker, “So, what exactly is the topic of this movie you’re making?”

“Freedom,” he answered. 

“Freedom? What does that have to do with this far-off Nevada town?”

He looked at me perplexed, as if, as a resident of the Silver State, I should have already known the answer.

“In this town you can legally buy fireworks, open carry a firearm, keep exotic pets, gamble to your heart’s content, and…well look around,” he replied, motioning to our surroundings.

“I guess you have a point,” I said, as I gazed at the dozens of sex workers strutting their negligee-clad stuff and chatting up their goggling clientele in the saloon— a saloon that just happened to be connected to a 20-acre legal brothel. 

“This is what the freedom looks like,” he said.

As I fulfilled my duties as a communications rep for the licensed bordello that day, I realized that what I was a part of was very precious and unique, and, like the concept of freedom itself, something that shouldn’t be taken for granted.

The State of Nevada is now at a crossroads. Petitioners in Lyon and Nye Counties are organizing an attempt to end legal prostitution in those areas. The women of Nevada’s brothels are under attack, and their freedom to lawfully practice sex work is threatened.

Why? Why does a group called “No Little Girl” want to close the brothels? 

If their website is any indication, the group says it wants to ban legal bordellos to end trafficking in these establishments, support the women who were forced into this life of “sexual slavery,” and create a more prosperous economy for the community.

But, the women working in Nevada’s legal brothels are not coerced, trafficked, or enslaved — there are certainly no records of such crimes occurring in these bordellos. The women all undergo a strict federal background check through the sheriff’s office, and every sex worker voluntarily operates in a regulated, safe, well-maintained, and disease-free environment. Many of these women have been willingly working in the legal brothels for years and are thriving financially as the breadwinners of their households. Scores of Nevada’s legal sex workers have passionately spoken out against No Little Girl on social media and in blogs and podcasts, making it clear that the sex workers did not ask for, and do not need, No Little Girl’s support. 

As far as economic development in these counties, the largest industrial park in the world, hosting some of the planet’s top companies, is located just a few miles from a legal brothel — so legal prostitution is unquestionably not an impediment to a Nevada community’s potential for economic growth. 

If No Little Girl’s website doesn’t offer a legitimate argument for their position, why does this group really want to close the brothels and take away one of Nevada’s unique freedoms?

KnowMe from the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Lyon County, Nevada

No Little Girl was formed by faith-based activists with a strong opinion of what is morally right, and they believe that exchanging sexual services for money, legally or otherwise, is morally wrong.

There’s nothing wrong with having a moral position based on one’s religion. I grew up Catholic and, prior to entering college, experienced twelve years of parochial schooling, so I’m well aware of my church’s current position on sex work. I’ve had many spirited discussions about legal prostitution with relatives that chose the priesthood as their vocation, and I fully accept their right to have a point of view I disagree with.  

We each see the world, our nation, and the people in our local community, through our individual moral lens — and that’s OK. Every one of us has the right to disapprove of another person’s life choices based on our moral perspective. What’s not OK, and what No Little Girl endeavors to do, is to impose a specific moral or spiritual belief system onto the entirety of a community, and take away the freedom to make personal choices from members of that community.

I get it: There are some people that consider legalized prostitution sinful. There are also people that abhor gambling, firearms, liquor, and marijuana, but that definitely doesn’t mean Nevada communities are going to vote to abolish these freedoms.

Part of living in a free American society is accepting the fact that we’re sharing our space with people whose moral compass may not align with our own. What makes many of Nevada’s communities among the freest in the nation is our deep understanding of this “live free and let live” viewpoint. 

If No Little Girl gets its way, and we let Nevada’s legal brothels go, what freedoms will be taken away next?

Legal Prostitution in Lyon County

Prostitution has been legal in Lyon County, Nevada for over forty years. In that time, the Nevada model for licensed and regulated prostitution has proven to be a time-tested and remarkably successful social experiment, where, under an umbrella of strict legislation, sex workers operating out of rurally-located brothels thrive harmoniously with their Lyon County neighbors. Now, after all these years, a small group of Lyon County residents have decided that they have a beef with the bordellos.

The group calling itself “No Little Girl” is petitioning to close the legal brothels in Lyon County, and remove the livelihood of hundreds of women who have made an informed choice to work in these establishments. On the “Issues” page of this group’s website, they make claims that the legality of brothels does nothing to make women any safer, and that prostitution is inherently violence against women. However, the page cites data that either has been debunked or has nothing to do with legal prostitution. The handful of individuals that submitted the petition represent faith-based organizations, and seem to be more concerned with pushing their specific moral agenda onto the whole of Lyon County than with the actual safety of the women in the brothels. Let’s take a closer look at the information on the group’s website

Christina Parreira is a legal sex worker and PhD student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas

The group suggests that large tech companies won’t move to the county and boost the local economy because of the existence of legal brothels, but they neglect to mention that Lance Gilman, owner of the Mustang Ranch brothel, helped bring Tesla to Nevada. The massive Tesla Gigafactory is located seven miles from the Mustang Ranch, proving that tax incentives and smart dealmaking are what bring big name tech companies into an area. Brothels are clearly not a factor in the decision making, especially when one considers that a brothel owner played a key role in convincing a tech giant to choose Nevada for its factory location.

Concerning the safety of women in the brothels, the website cites Melissa Farley, a researcher whose work was debunked years ago. Farley claims to have interviewed 45 women in the Nevada brothels but discounts their comments in her 2007 book, writing “I knew that they would minimize how bad it was” (p. 22). Farley writes that her data does not support her conclusions because women “ignore bad things or they pretended that unpleasantness will go away, or they call the degrading abuse of prostitution by another name that sounds better” (p. 22). Farley did not listen to the women and instead formed her conclusions based on her own moral agenda. In 2011 Dr. Calum Bennachie, a gender studies scholar, sent a 115 page formal complaint to the American Psychological Association requesting that Farley be disqualified for professional misconduct. In his complaint he detailed evidence to show that “Dr. Farley is repeating unsubstantiated rumour as fact” and “is deliberately misleading people” (2011). Farley has a long and well-known history of discounting the voices of sex workers in an effort to push her ideological agenda. The website also cites a 2004 study by Potterat, but the sample is from women working independently in Colorado; a very different group of women with work conditions that are nothing like those in the legal Nevada brothels. Women who work illegally are subject to rape and assault because they do not have protections under the law. Criminalization forces them to work in unsafe settings and unlike in the legal Nevada brothels, they cannot call for help when they are raped or assaulted. This speaks to the harms of criminalization, not of prostitution.

Chance Monet and Tiara Tae from the Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Lyon County

On the FAQ page, it states that women are often raped in the legal brothels. This is grossly inaccurate. In my own doctoral research of 53 women working in 5 Nevada brothels, I did not encounter a single woman who had reported being raped by a client in the brothel, and I was certainly never raped during my years working in the brothels. Perhaps the most inflammatory claim on the FAQ portion of the website is that most of the women in the brothels are under the control of pimps. This is simply not true. Of the 53 women I interviewed, 5 reported that they had pimps BEFORE they worked in the brothels but since coming to work legally were able to escape this coercion and freely offer intimate services. One worker told me of the horrific abuse she endured at the hands of a pimp, and she was grateful to have escaped him and be in a place where she could work safely and legally. She credited her newfound safety and freedom to the brothel. She feared that if she went back to her home state, her former pimp would find her, kidnap her, and force her back on the streets.

Roxanne Price from the Love Ranch in Lyon County

The FAQ section claims that legalization does not improve conditions for prostitutes or women in the community. We can look to Rhode Island as a case study: In Rhode Island prostitution was decriminalized from 2003-2009. A study done by Cunningham & Shah (2014) shows that rates of rape and gonorrhea plummeted with decriminalization; 824 fewer rape offenses (31 percent decrease) and 1035 fewer cases of female gonorrhea (39 percent decrease) from 2004-2009.

The FAQ section also asks the question “has anyone asked the women what they want?” My fellow workers and I have reached out to this organization over the past 2 weeks, desperately trying to make our voices heard. We tell them that we are happy with our chosen careers and that we do not want to lose our jobs, but they are not listening, and continue to push their moral agenda onto us.

As a licensed prostitute and PhD student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, I can tell you that what I want is to continue to have the freedom to choose to work in a safe environment, where I can practice a trade that I love, lawfully and prosperously. Sex work is definitely not my last resort or my only option — it is my choice. I’d like to continue to have the opportunity to make that choice legally.

If you really care about us, just listen to us.

The Benefits of Nye County Brothels

Despite the fact that brothels have been open in Nye County for over 40 years, a county commissioner is now questioning whether they should continue to exist. In a county meeting last week, commissioner Lorinda Wichman stated “Staff is looking into what it is costing the taxpayer to have legalized prostitution in Nye County. I asked them to compare what it is costing us to what we receive. My curiosity is to whether or not taxpayers of Nye County are subsidizing the brothel industry.” This was in the wake of the reinstatement of Dennis Hof’s license for Love Ranch which was wrongfully removed almost a month ago over a supposed violation which the state fire department ruled was non-existent. Love Ranch is back open for business, but now the very existence of the brothels is under fire. Has Wichman considered what will happen to the county without the brothels and all of the revenue that they bring in, and what about the working women and their families who will be out of a job? Has she considered the toll the illegal prostitution may take on her community, or the welfare and safety of women who may have no option but to turn to the street to work? Does the commissioner even care, or is this part of a political vendetta against Dennis Hof who is seeking the Republican nomination for Assembly District 36?

Since Wichman is curious about the numbers, here are some numbers she should take into consideration: In Nye County the brothels bring in approximately $140,000 per year just from the license fees and work cards. A substantial portion of this goes to the veteran’s association as well as local EMT services. While Clark County is losing money and resources by trying to combat illegal prostitution, counties where prostitution is legal are reaping the benefits. Brothels in Nevada serve approximately 400,000 clients a year and generate a profit of $35-50 million (Hausbeck, Brents & Jackson, 2006).

What about illegal prostitution, how does Nye County stack up to Clark County? An estimated 300-400 prostitutes are arrested each month in Las Vegas (Flowers, 1998). In 2009 there were 4484 arrests for prostitution in Clark County where it is illegal versus 1 in Nye county where prostitution is legal. Illegal prostitution in Las Vegas grosses approximately $5 billion per year versus the $35-50 million generated from the legal brothels (Flowers, 2011). It is estimated that up to 3,500 prostitutes are working unlawfully in the Las Vegas area at any given time (Brents & Hausbeck, 2007). The majority of arrests for sex offenses in Nevada, 77%, involve prostitution (Ruggieri et al 2007). In 2010 Nevada had the highest proportion of prostitution-related arrests in the entire US at 0.1384% with second being California at a significantly lower 0.0376% (Federal Bureau Investigation 2010). This is not the case in Nye County where prostitution is legal. However, if the brothels close, what does Wichman think will happen to the working women? Will they go on welfare? Will they begin working illegally?

The brothels also make great community partners. Every year the Nye County brothels take part in the “Bordello Poker Run” motorcycle event, and the brothels frequently take part in charitable events like the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

If Wichman wants to test all of this with a vote, I urge her to do so; historically the people of Nye County have been supportive of the brothels, and Nevada voters in general are overall in favor of legal prostitution; they understand the benefit to the community. A 2011 poll conducted by Public Policy Polling found that the majority of registered voters in Nevada believe that prostitution should be legalized throughout the state, including 65% of Independents, 56% Democrats, and 51% of Republicans (PPP Report 2012).

Wichman is not only playing with peoples’ livelihoods but with their safety and welfare, and considering the numbers are not in her favor, I have to wonder what the true source of her curiosity springs from.

“Hapa Toki,” Celebrating My Korean Heritage and Sex Work Through My Music

Blackpink, Twice, EXO, 2NE1, BTS, Big Bang, and HyunA, this is just a short list of the incredibly popular Korean Pop (KPop) solo artists and girl / boy bands that have captured the hearts of Koreans and the world over. One could suspect the worldwide KPop fanbase grew exponentially over the course of the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, as many figure skaters’ routines incorporated several popular KPop songs, and the closing ceremony featured thrilling performances by EXO and 2NE1.

Undeniably, KPop has adopted much of the Western pop / hip-hop / dance / rap / R&B sound. However, KPop is all about highlighting Korean’s pop culture, which is indeed a world all its own. KPop artists and their music videos emphasize a distinct Korean style that showcase bold, bright, and dramatic makeup, fashion, hairstyles, and design choices. Some artists even pay homage to Korean culture by including traditional instruments and dance in their videos.

Ava Carter from Dennis Hof’s Moonlite Bunny Ranch

Here at the Moonlite Bunnyranch, I take immense pride in both my half-Korean American heritage and profession as a courtesan. However, as is the case with most things worth taking pride in, one can experience intense frustration and immense self-doubt before the eternal glimmer of hope might eventually flourish, and thus establish self-acceptance and confidence.

Growing up half-Korean wasn’t entirely easy. During my formative years, peers consistently pointed out elements of my culture and aesthetics that made me ‘different.’ I was too skinny, short, flat-chested; Korean food or candy I’d attempt to unabashedly share looked or tasted ‘weird’ or ‘gross’; my choice in Korean clothing and accessories were balked; and because Korean was my first language, there were moments of intense ridicule dare I ask the meaning behind an English word with which I was unfamiliar.

Korean American and legal Sex Worker Ava Carter

It was a frustrating and sometimes deeply depressing part of my life. Not to mention, it was also during this time that I began to blossom into a young lady, and therefore sex and my sexuality became of great interest to me. It wasn’t long until I was told that, too, wasn’t ‘normal’. As a result, I withdrew, considering myself an outlier without much possibility of acceptance. I’m grateful, however, that I was able to find solace in my favorite form of self-expression at the time: music.

Over the years, I began to write my own songs and explore various styles and genres, including KPop. As I listened to and performed my songs, I gradually felt a sense of pride for each piece. Since I found happiness in this form of expression, I could no longer deny the desire to explore and express my sexuality with others, as well. As I did, I could sense a significant and incredibly impactful turning point in my life. It was time I embrace my culture, share and express my impassioned sexual appetite; time to find courage from deep within to challenge and overcome the social stigmas of sex work; and, finally, time I celebrate my truest self. Thus, I became a courtesan at the Moonlite BunnyRanch, and ‘Hapa Toki’ was created.

The term ‘Hapa’ is a Hawaiian word that has been adopted nationwide, as it means half-asian / Pacific Islander, and ‘Toki,’ means bunny rabbit in Korean. As a half-Korean American BunnyBabe at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, I couldn’t think of a more perfect title for a song that would represent all that I am!

‘Hapa Toki’ not only provides insight into some of the fun I offer as a KPop musician and courtesan, it’s a means of celebrating my culture while encouraging self-acceptance and sexual exploration. It’s fun, energetic, sexy, and sweet, just like me!

Having been impacted so greatly by social stigmas, I know what it’s like to feel ‘different’ or ashamed of who you are, so I encourage you to reach out and share your journey of sexual exploration (or even your musical talent) with me. Let’s celebrate music, culture, SEX, and be proud of who we are, together!
