Tag: Avoiding Vice Once and For All
Streetwalkers are a common sight off Fremont Street downtown, off The Strip, and down Boulder Highway. The problem is that in Clark County, prostitution is illegal, especially when it is solicited or obtained in a public place. Of course, many streetwalkers live a lifestyle that leaves them, and you, more susceptible to drugs, sexually transmitted infections, or STIs, and arrest. In Nevada at large, however, prostitution is legal when it occurs in one of the licensed brothels. This makes sexual tourism one of the state’s greatest draws, after gambling, of course. Where many tourists run afoul of the law is not realizing that prostitution in Clark and Washoe counties is still illegal.
Many of the brothels in the Amargosa Valley northwest of Las Vegas have free shuttles to encourage guests to come to their establishments. This free service helps cut down on the expense of travel for patrons, encouraging them to spend more money for their dream encounter without fear of running afoul of the police. The brothels offer a number of advantages, including:
- Security and Privacy: No one needs to know you were there except you.
- Discretion: The girls in the brothels are paid to please you, not to tell stories about you.
- Safety: All brothel workers are required by law to use condoms and check for visible evidence of STIs before every assignation, reducing the risk of disease.
For this reason, the brothels may be the most desirable alternative for the sexually adventurous tourist. The prices at the brothels vary depending on where you go, how long you stay and what you want to do, ranging from $100-200 and up. While this may not seem very cost-effective, when one considers the potential legal and medical costs of wrangling with a streetwalker, it becomes clear that a couple of bills is actually a bargain for an hour or a night of pleasurable company. But are there other options?
Opening the Las Vegas phone book gives one access to a large variety of escort services, which many tourists prefer to the added time and occasionally expense of going outside county lines to get their desires met. Las Vegas escorts operate much more discreetly than streetwalkers, which makes it a lot harder for Vice to follow them. Also, escorts have a much lower incidence of STIs and drug use, which makes them much safer for your pleasure.
Most escort services charge rates comparable to those of the brothels, and many add an “agency fee,” or a surcharge for arranging your meeting. The problem is that it is difficult for a customer to be sure the lovely young woman who just arrived is actually an escort and not an undercover Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Vice officer. In many cases, independent, or non-agency-affiliated, escorts, will require references before they will agree to an encounter at all. While this reduces numerous risks for both parties, it could prove more of an irritation than the services rendered are worth and still breaks the law.
Clearly there are a lot of options for the tourist who has more in mind than just gambling, but why risk bringing home a misdemeanor or a medical condition that can’t be cured with a couple of aspirin and a day’s bed rest? Nevada’s brothels are generally open 24 hours and perfectly willing to cater to tourists from Sin City. Their websites usually show who’s working, so you can choose your courtesan before you ever leave. This is the best, safest, and most enjoyable way to avoid Vice once and for all when you’re visiting Las Vegas.
