What makes you think I believe anything that a corporation says?

What brings in more customers- "Come our brothels we have a five percent infection rate" or "come to our brothels, everything is safe."

If you want to believe what some corporate suit tells you, feel free to do so, I won't.
You are so out of touch and have no concept of that business.

I thought it was legal in some areas like Vegas?? Maybe not. Some countries have made it legal like Germany, korea.... It is a womans body, she should have the right to choose.....but only when it benefits certain groups political agendas. Funny how that works. Prostitution isn't for everyone, but some will do it no matter what. Why not regulate it and tax it?? Just because it is legal doens't mean all will do it. Ditch digging is legal for woman, but very few do it....it's not for everyone.

No - it is not legal in Las Vegas. There are legal Brothels in only 3 (4?) counties in Nevada

So, it is legal in a few places? I thought I had heard that on one of the discovery or history channels.

Why should the government be able to tax something they have no role in? If I want to sell a kidney, why should the government be able to dictate how I do it, whether I can even do it to begin with, or what percent I have to pay them?

I don't believe they should legalize prostitution and let state governments operate brothels. They should simply decriminalize it and stop arresting women for engaging in such activities. Giving the state a monopoly or the power to grant monopolies to private entities, will never have good results.

Are you willing to bet your house and car that there has never been a single case of an STD infection that can reasonably be attributed to a regulated Nevada brothel?

Somebody might be able to make the case that the government helps commerce by maintaining the roads so that goods can be easily transported. However, it seems that lately they've been failing to do even that much.

How about this: How about you acknowledge that you know NOTHING about the legal brothels / legal prostitution in the State of Nevada?

How about that????
