Prostitution is only legal in a few counties in Nevada.
It is not legal in Las Vegas or Reno.
The Wize Old Man does not support illegal prostitution.
With the ease of air travel, there's simply no reason to not go where it's safe and legal.
Nevada is the only State in the US that has legal prostitution. Prostitutes must work in a licensed brothel and have regular health checks.
Brothels themselves are only legal in certain sparsely populated counties. There is no legal prostitution in Las Vegas or Reno. Story County refers to brothels as "Houses of Ill Fame".
All customers must be 21 or over and free from open sores or discharges. Couples are welcome. You will wear a condom even for a hand job so don't bother to ask.
Most of the brothels will not discuss price and the Wize Old Man would appreciate you lettings us know how much you paid. If you don't want the hassle of having to negotiate, consider Shady Lady Ranch near Beatty which has a published pricelist on their website.
Most of the websites have pictures of the prostitutes that are available at any particular time. Most are very attractive. If you are looking for a courtesan of a specific ethnicity, the pictures are useful. Otherwize, don't base your trip on the pictures. There is a proverb that goes "In buying a horse and taking a wife, close your eyes and through yourself on the mercy of god." Let that be your guide even in the clubs that encourage you to sit and drink with the sex-workers before making a selection. Nervous about picking someone out of a line-up? Don't be. Just pick the first one you like. The others will get their chance with the next customer. No one will criticize you choice. (She's probably wearing a wig anyway.)
They will not care if you are old, fat, bald, married, and hung like a hamster. They will care if you haven't bathed or have bad breath. You are advised to treat the ladies with respect and you'll have a much more enjoyable visit. Sure, they are only there for the money but you probably don't like being verbally abused on your job so don't be a jerk.
Finally, some of the best places are truly out in the middle of nowhere. They are worth the drive, particularly on a clear, moonless night when the view of the stars is wonderful. Just be sure to take a couple of bottles of water and don't run out of gas as can be 100 miles between gas stations!
Shady Lady in Esmeralda County is only brothel that offers a male prostitute for women.
Strip clubs are not brothels. Don't embarrass yourself by confusing the two. -- WOM
