RESPONSE TO THRILLIST ARTICLE ON NEVADA BROTHELS

https://www.thrillist.com/sex-dating/los-angeles/what-is-a-legal-brothel-like?vortexd=65

Note the comments below - people are seeing straight through this "inphomercial" for the legal brothels of Nevada. Let me ask you something - how honest would you be talking to the press about your job and your boss and co-workers if they're all standing right next to you at the time of the interview? Further, if during the interview you are actually living at your place of employment. Meaning if you do say something like "my boss is a jerk" then you know once the reporter leaves you're now going to be asked to pack up your suitcase and leave. Only you can't "just" leave when you work at a legal brothel in Nevada. First, there are no cabs to call to pick you up nor limo's. Every legal brothel is in a tiny little town where there are no commercial transportation services. Second, you can't call a cab or limo to come get you from the larger city of say Las Vegas or Reno because you'd have to pay them for that mileage just to reach you. Why can't you pay them? Because the house only pays your manager at a contracted period of time. You're never given your cash when you just say "I'm leaving". You leave with no cash on you but what you came with. So if you came in to work without any money on you - then you walk out of there with no money on you UNLESS it's your payday and your work contract states you're to be paid in cash directly - not to your "manager" or "agent". There are no buses either to the major cities or the airport to fly home either. Third, you can't just walk out of the place and go hitch a ride either because it's literally against the law to do so. When you first arrive to work it's illegal for you to leave the building for the first 48 hours. After your first 48 hours - it's illegal to walk off the property after dark. Yes that's right - it's literally illegal for you to walk off the job and go hitch a ride home. If you drove yourself - that's great. But if you didn't and someone dropped you off - then you have to wait for them to come and get you. Fourth, you can count on two hands the number of legal brothel owners in the USA. Meaning if you call your boss a jerk to the press you can not just kiss your job at that place goodbye - but you can literally kiss your whole career goodbye. Fifth, after receiving the prostitute license to work in a Nevada legal brothel go and try and get yourself a license to sell real estate, stocks on Wall Street, or teach school children. In other words, many many jobs out there will not hire you once they find out you've a license to be a prostitute which will show up on a background check these days. So if you screw up this gig and you don't have another career ready to go as your back-up - then you just screwed your whole career royally no matter how accurate you feel about what you'd like to say about either your boss, the company, the clients or the industry itself. Sixth, would you be likely to tell a reporter your boss is a "jerk" if you knew he had shot a famous unarmed boxer down in cold blood and never even was arrested for the murder? So I ask you - how accurate and totally honest do you think an interview would be of someone about their job if they were being asked about the job and their boss, co-workers, clients, etc., were standing right there listening and you also had these other things to deal with such as you were residing on the premises, and had these transportation issues? Also, what would it serve you to tell the truth? If you lie and say you "love this job and love your clients and love your boss" then you MAKE MONEY. If you were to tell the truth which is your boss is a jerk, the clients are jerks, the coworkers are jerks and the job is completely disgusting to the point where you puke each time you turn a trick - you get fired, thrown off the property, blacklisted in the industry, you completely lose your income for who knows how long it's going to take you to find another job after this interview hits the press and your face is blasted all over the media as a prostitute, you have a whole bunch of people pissed off at you, possibly threatening you, and you're not even sure how you're going to get home after blowing off some stream to the press like this. So if there is no upside to telling the 100 % total complete truth to the reporter - would you? Let's now add a possible complication - that of drugs. Heidi Fleiss was busted for having over 400 pot plants growing at her place by the Bunny Ranch and she was engaged to Dennis Hof at one point in time. Marijuana is legal pretty much in Nevada. Meaning as long as you're at the ranch and being "nice" then you'll be able to score all the pot pretty much you want. But if you were to piss off these people, stomp off the job - what would the odds be they'd let you buy from them again? Or you can go to the dispensary and buy more right? Takes money which you just screwed yourself out of by telling the complete truth. Ask yourself how many people have you heard interviewed about what it's like to work at a Nevada brothel who isn't talking to the reporter while smoking a joint, drinking wine or champagne, and has Hof standing right next to her while she's on the job? If the interview is out of town, she's on Hof's private plane and her ride home even. With the ad money these guys spend - would your paper or station print the truth if you told it? I ask because I once approached a Vegas magazine with an interview with an ex-brothel prostitute about her time there and was refused because the publisher said "I'm not going to screw myself out of that ad money they give me by printing this". Every research report done by a university has been paid for by the owners. Name me one research report bought by the tobacco industry which identified tobacco as causing cancer or being addictive? Speaking of tobacco - anyone see the film "The Insider" about how much trouble an insider had just getting the truth out about their product to the public? How the press had to literally go to war with a team of lawyers just to publish the truth? After how many people died of cancer related to tobacco? Am I the only one remembering they lied to Congress about their product? I watched the documentary on HBO "Hot Toxic Seat" about the chemical flame retardant industry and the lies, manipulation, and money involved in having laws passed requiring the sale and use of their chemicals on products such as clothing and furniture even when it was causing firemen cancer - and I can assure you the money involved in flame retardant chemicals is smaller, and there's much less of any emotional investment, into the sex industry of porn, prostitution, stripping, webcams, etc. But somehow these brothels are a shining example of "truth in advertising?" Here's an interview with a woman who was two years clean and sober at the time, and who had completely exited the entire sex industry at the time of the interview. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/stopsextrafficktalk/2013/07/08/hear-from-a-nevada-brothel-prostitute Her motivation for the interview was because her pimp/husband was threatening to put her two small children into child porn if she didn't return to work at the brothel. He had won legal custody because of her prostitute license and the court deciding she wasn't a "fit" mother for that reason. www.sexworkersanonymous.com helped her get her and her kids to Canada where they don't extradite to escape him and she wanted to warn others from her experience. These brothels are a business. As such - how honest do you think most press is about any corporation? Especially one that has just received such a large investment as the brothels did recently when Disney invested $250 million dollars into MGT. MGT is a partner of Vivid Entertainment. Vivid Entertainment books private appointments with their performers to do outcalls through the Nevada legal brothels, and for this reason is moving their operation into Nevada where a film stage is being built in Pahrump. Why? Interactive "live" porn through things such as Oculus - a product of Google. Google who donated $11 million dollars to Polaris. Polaris who passed a law requiring signs be posted at adult businesses in California - but not Nevada for some reason. Now I ask you - how can someone working at a legal brothel call a trafficking hotline for help? How can they call for help when calling Polaris refers them in Nevada to reach out to the local homeless shelter who does not provide transportation to them? Let's stop saying this is a "business" and not looking at it LIKE a "business". As to "why" Disney would invest into such a circle of corporations which would be basically funneling young boys and girls from mouse ears as children into such companies as Vivid Entertainment - take one good look at what one sex tape did for Kim Kardashian and her family and then think about that question again. I mean imagine - all those "Britney Spears wannabee's" who didn't make it big by their 18th birthday who are now trained actors and dancers however and can you think of a more natural career step than to suggest they go down to Vivid's office on their 18th birthday. Why their "headshots" will already be prepared when they decide to go talk to their recruiters. Besides, it's not like Vivid or the Bunny Ranch can go out amongst the kiddies and recruit them directly now can they? Well that just wouldn't be "tasteful" now would it? Watch some of the dance shows on Disney lately and tell me they're not future porn stars and strippers in training please . . . It's not like many of them are killing themselves studying classical ballet there at Disney. I mean didn't I just read not long ago the largest raid of pedophiles were Disney employees? Take a good look at what Britney's parents had to go through in order to save her from an agent who was drugging her Wheaties to control her so severely they had to get a restraining order against the guy - and then tell me how this same thing would play out on a young lady who had a single mom as her legal guardian with a drug habit to support? Britney's parents were there for her - but what if they hadn't of been? There is a reason why the only people I'm seeing shut down right now under the guise of being "sex traffickers" are those who are in direct competition with the Nevada legal brothels. If Carl Ferrer of Backpage can be arrested as a sex trafficker for taking an ad for someone to perform an act of prostitution - then can you explain to me why Google isn't being arrested in the same complaint for directing people with their search engine advertising to the legal brothels of Nevada for the same act? You got it - because one is the NV legal brothels and the other isn't. The "war on sex trafficking" has become nothing more than a smoke screen to shut down all competitors to Vivid and the NV brothels - reminding me of how Polaris' first act against "sex trafficking" was to re-criminalize Rhode Island - the only legal competition to the NV brothels. We're watching a modern day version of Al Capone trying to take over the alcohol industry in the same manner as to why he was nicknamed the "untouchable" because of his legal, political, and even religious connections who he would use to shut down his "competitors" to his organized operation. Let me ask you something - how come I see nothing in this article about the virgins from Brazil Dennis Hof auctions off recruited for him by Joe Conforte - a man who fled this country to avoid felony arrest? Virgins who are brought into this country courtesy of men such as Joohon David Lee - a man working for Homeland Security, Immigration and the trafficking task force who used taxpayer money to fly over to other countries to pick up these women, fly them to Nevada using work permits at the brothel's restaurants for their visa's, and when caught sex trafficking was only charged with bribery from "Mr. H." because no law exists that can hold him accountable for such things? Where instead of being in prison for using his position to traffick women into this country he's now driving a limo? I wouldn't be surprised at all if his employer is Charles Horkey who was convicted of using his limo company to also engage in sex trafficking. Now with Sheldon Adelson, the owner of the Review Journal newspaper, and just about all of the press in Nevada, being a supporter of legalized prostitution - what do you think the odds are that we're hearing the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth when it comes to these brothels? I ask you - how do these brothels protect a woman from being a trafficking victim when there's no way to file a police report against anyone forcing them to work in them which is the definition of sex trafficking? If there was a way to call the cops and make a criminal charge against a pimp for trafficking you inside these brothels - do you really believe the owner of the brothel would cooperate with the prosecution knowing what bad press this would be for his brothel? Do you think the other prostitutes would testify against them to support your accusation? Show me ONE lawsuit a woman has filed against a NV brothel for ANYTHING - whether it be wrongful termination, sexual harassment, workers compensation? Seriously - I'd like to see ONE criminal charge or civil lawsuit of a brothel prostitute against either their pimp or one of the brothels for ANYTHING? Compare with other companies who have employees sue them all the time and then answer that question please. Even a pack of cigarettes has a surgeon general's warning on them - but look at what lengths had to be gone through before that happened and then tell me how "accurate" and "honest" articles such as this are. Reminds me of George Flint, the Brothel Owners Association lobbyist who has admitted he's never set foot inside of one in his life. Now how seriously am I supposed to take his word for what goes on in these places when that's the case? Against maybe Harry Reid who grew up literally next door to one and saw what goes on at one as a kid? Grow up people. If this is a "business" - then start viewing it as one including the difference between "marketing" and the truth. I run www.sexworkersanonymous.com and since 1987 I've been talking to women who have left this industry, including those legal brothels, and I believe I'm hearing more of the truth out of them because there's no motivation to be lying to us when calling our hotline. And if their industry wasn't scared to death of what those views are out of them - then tell me why the Review Journal has refused to do one single article on us in the 30 years we've done this - even when the NV legislature was having hearings on sex trafficking laws which we were testifying against. Where's one single news station in Nevada that's interviewed us ever since we gave a press conference in NV in 2007 releasing a report we'd helped to prepare to the State Dept. about Nevada sex trafficking? If a major newspaper were to do a story on alcoholism but refuse to print one word about Alcoholics Anonymous or one interview with Bill Wilson or even a member of AA - tell me then how good of a story about alcoholism would that be?
