revenue in the case of the Mustang Annual license fees in the hundreds of thousands are not rare and the associated employment brings in needed additional tax revenue Following the federal seizure of the Mustang Ranch for the failure of the owner to pay appropriate income taxes he was a fugitive in Brazil and hiding the revenue under a false corporation the brothel has been shut Civil Rights Activism in Milwaukee down until the courts canecide on the legality of the appeal of the conviction The Feds had thought about running the brothel to bring in some revenue to pay the expenses of the prosecution but that was eemed politically unwise The author came away from the experience a confirmed advocate of legalized prostitution Customers and prostitutes are safe and the regulation is intense Condom usage is mandatory as are regular health checkups and in fact no licensed prostitute has ever been iagnosed with HIV although several applicants who were refused licenses had been It s ironic but the johns have virtually no control over their experience at the brothel except for the selection of the girl and even that is often out of their control If the word gets around that a particular john is impolite routinely abusive or just generally obnoxious the word gets around and the girls will walk him ie uote impossibly high prices as independent contractors they set their own prices returning 50% to the brothel and soon the john leaves frustrated to say the least In any case the girls remain in complete control of the situation and each customer gets a thorough wash and genital examination to look for any sign of an STD Many of the women see themselves as providing a valuable public service and from her interviews with many of the clients Ms Albert would agree For many of the men it s their only form of social contact and many even become uite addicted to it even to the point where they subsidize the girls beyond what happens in the building giving them extra clothes helping with moving the rent etc But to the majority of the women a trick is still a trick and they can be uite good at manipulating these relationships Most of them are in it for the money which can be very good Some were persuaded by husbands others by mothers most by financial necessity but many have worked for many years Several insisted they can completely separate their professional lives from their personal insisting they maintain a normal life at home with their husbands and families But Academic Capitalism and the New Economy Markets State and Higher Education despite its legalization the life lacks legitimacy and those who work in the brothels as barkeeps maids vendors and prostitutesevelop a sense of community and family that provides structure and support that they often lack elsewhere The brothel had provided an income as well as friendship compassion trust and hope for countless women and men In many ways Mustang Ranch picked up where society had ropped the ball It Had Provided A Safe Nonjudgmental Economically Sound provided a safe nonjudgmental economically sound environment and a fair way for a community of several ozen women and their familles to meet their most basic needs Whatever you think of prostitution and its legalization this is an essential and very interesting read Predictable Her puritanical and pre feminist preconceptions are shattered when after a short stay at The Ranch she finds hookers with a heart of gold and strangely enough that people tend to form social groups based on altered s when they are thrown together living and working at the ranch What individuals that pay for sex or get paid to perform sex acts are people too huh It was interesting to learn about the inner workings of legalized prostitution and the impact on the localstate political economy but the social commentary was a bit much to stomach Maybe i just have a warm fuzzy feeling from this book because i read it while at Governor s School The library at Mercyhurst College is gorgeousI was still in high school so i admit i was looking for a book to fuel a pervy fantasy That s not what i got from the book but i kept reading anyway A female journalist s visits to a legal brother in Nevada She visits many times It s a really human portrayal of sex workers as the writer Material Alchemy develops a personal connection with the ladies inside though she calls them girls This bookidn t change my life but it Falling For A Boss did spark a curiosity It would be best read with a searching critical eye why these women are marked as a curiosity what the prejudices the writer has to put aside before having a fulfilling experienceSPOILER NEXTI have to say i was a littleisappointed that the author idn t start working at the ranch near the end of the book Alexa Albert s study in Nevada s well known and now efunct Mustang Ranch brothel was Albert s study in Nevada s well known and now efunct Mustang Ranch brothel was fascinating read Albert lobbied the Nevada Brothel Association for three years in order to conduct a public health study and was finally given admittance Nevada is the only state in the US that has legal brothelsAlbert wanted to study condom use and measures to prevent the spread of STDs No public health official or octor had ever conducted a study in a brothel seemingly the most obvious place to learn about it Albert begins the book talking about her study but the rest of the book is of a journalistic style reporting on the lives and trials of the Mustang Ranch prostitutes

Brothel Mustang Ranch and Its WomenBOOOORRRRING I couldn t get through the fourth chapter I was interested in what the inner workings of a brothel might be but honestly all this lady talks about is the appearance of some of the women and some boring conversations they have while painting their nails In short it is just like hanging out at home waiting for someone to show up to pay you for sex hmmmm that gives me an idea Can I start charging my husband LMAO Alexa Albert was a PhD student studying public health who got special permission from a brothel in Nevada to stay on the premises and observe the brothel culture She got to interview the working women and find out how they got to where they are the type of customers they attract the rules and regulations of the business and their personal lives Staying in the brothel for an extended period of time the women were skeptical of Alberts at first but then grew to Mobilizing Islam develop a trusting relationship with the author Of all the memoirs and biographies read this was one of my favorites and one of the ones I have passed on to many friends and family members Albert is one of the only people to capture an accurate portrayal of the legal prostitution scene and the inner workings of a brothel Culture is a strange thing Depending on where you live in the world prostitution is either accepted or illegal and here in the United States it s even strange as it s accepted nowhere other than in Nevada Even then it s only legal in licensed brothels such as The Mustang Ranch While it s legal and provides a high percentage of income for local government it s still not the type of business that is embraced or advertised publicly and is associated with a look the other way mentalityDue to the attitude towards brothels and prostitution in general Alexa Albert took it upon herself to investigate theay to BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) day practices of the brothels its workers and its customers Integrating herself into the Mustang Ranch by living there she became close with many of the workers andocumented her findings and attitudes in Brothel Mustang Ranch and its Women Brothel is a very informative book that humanizes the sex industry in relation to the Mustang Ranch It s also a very complicated industry which the author oes her best to understand even going to the lengths of watching the actual act of prostitution taking place Albert s greatest strength is also her greatest weakness in that she becomes emotionally close to some of the workers As such she is allowed greater access into how they feel what they think how they cope etc but at the same time that causes her to lose her objectivity as she has an emotional connection to her subjects Calling the workers her subjects is almost ehumanizing them on my part as they become friends of hers and Albert becomes someone who they can confide inOne aspect that I took away from reading this book is that there is no set personality when it comes to who ends up in prostitution Women from all walks of life turn to one of the world s oldest industry However none walks of life turn to one of the world s oldest industry However none them are ever there Alien Zookeeper's Abduction due to it being a career choice brought about by their love of the industry Many were prostitutingue to financial hardship while others were rawn towards the high earning potential even if they weren t experiencing hardship of there own In many ways I ended up admiring the choice that these women had made particularly those who were selling their bodies so their children could have a better life Sadly though as working at the Mustang Ranch meant being confined to the brothel for three weeks at a time and sometimes their children missed out on time spent with their mothersI was surprised to learn that a fair percentage of the women enjoyed the sex they provided and often experienced orgasms unfortunately even within such a stigmatized industry those even within such a stigmatized industry those were further stigmatized by some of their fellow workers who considered enjoying the prostitution a isgusting practiceAs much as the author analyzes and interprets the situations conditions and experiences of the working girls the true beauty of this book lays in the human aspect Regardless of whether they are working in a stigmatized industry ultimately the females who prostitute themselves are just like you and I and that shines through in the narrativeThe one problem I had with this book and it s not something that can be avoided is that it s Knocked Up by a Thug dated It was published back in 2001 when Mustang Ranch had been shutown by government agencies and so it ends with the future of the ranch still in limbo I o believe it was rebuilt at another site and is now running under new ownership Also some of the laws that applied back then that are issues in the book have now changed such as brothels and the sex workers themselves not being able to advertise themselves With the onset of the internet clients can book a time their woman Of Choice And Agree choice and agree price long before they even visit a brothelIf you have an interest in human sexuality then I would certainly recommend this book as it covers a lot of ifferent aspects such sexual health prostitution attitudes towards brothels and the sex itself What it isn t is a book full of licentiousness seediness and cheap thrills as the subject matter is handled in a mature and professional way Truly this is such a fascinating topic In Brothel Alexa Albert recounts her time spent in one of Nevada s most famous brothels as she grapples with the idea of women selling sexSome have criticized Albert for going too far at one point she sits in on a session with a prostitute and her customer but to me it seemed necessary in terms of her personal. When Harvard medical student Alexa Albert conducted a public health study as the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada the only state in the union where prostitution is legal neither she nor the brothel could have predicted the end result Having worked with homeless prostitutes in Times Suare Albert was intimate with human evastation cause by the sex trade and curious to see if Nevada’s brothels offered a less harmful model for a business that will alwa.

Progress To really come to terms with the nature of sex work she had to put aside stereotypes and previous socialization to understand just what happened from start to finish It s much easier to make premature judgements when we re ignorant an honest assessment only comes with knowledge It s no surprise that Albert s writing unearthed plenty of contradictions complex ynamics and uniue variables seemingly inherent in the world of prostitution Where everyone shows up for Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era different reasons and with uniue backgrounds there are bound to be a wide variety of experiences and perspectivesIndeed through her experiences Albert was able to highlight and validate all the typical arguments both for and against legalized prostitution Everything from women as victims to women empowered wasescribed in the tales of Mustang Ranch s working girls Long story short there is no fast and easy answer in terms of prostitution no specific factor that contributes to women getting or staying in this line of work But one thing is undoubtedly true this is an age old profession and one that isn t going away anytime soon whether it s legal or criminalized It seems a reasonable conclusion then that if we can t stop it we might as well understand it regulate it and make it as safe and healthy as possible for all those involved I admit that I am confused about why any woman would choose to become a prostitute and work in a brothel Author Alexa Albert The Alchemy of Opposites did too She lived at and visited the famed Mustang Ranch in Nevada as part of herissertation and then wrote a book about her experience She s not an easy writer to read There is no cohesiveness no flow no guidance when she narrates this book I gave up reading this partly because of the writing and partly because I m not learning anything new about either legal or illegal prostitution that a season of Law Order SVU couldn t teach me But I id add Best Little Whorehouse in Texas to my Netflix ueue A well written balanced and informative inside look into the sex services industry in Nevada USAWhat I learned from this bookAlthough legalized brothels offer a work environment for women in the sex trade that is vastly preferable to any other presently existing option there is still vast room for improvement The women on t appear to be suffering in any major way and yet it s obvious that there exists a substantial unregulated gray area within the owner management employee relationship permitting management owners to take monetary advantage of the women if they so wish The author repeatedly illustrates how management Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture didn t acutally respect women s status as independent contractors thereby allowing for various little and not so little ways in which management and third parties eg taxi cabrivers whittle away at the women s profit margins I wonder if today the women in the industry have come together into some form of trade association so that they too can lobby influence county state officials to legislate for the prostitutes not only for the brothel owners s behalf Is it too much to ask for a prostitute owned operated establishment where pro prostitute rules and regulations could be applied and where the prostitutes have full autonomy not the pseudo independent contractor status that exists or existed at the time of the writing of this book incidentally i watched the hbo series on Incidentally I watched the HBO series on Nevada brothel industry a couple of years ago before reading this book I recall being uncomfortable about the overly cheerful way things were presented in the series featuring the Moonlite Bunny Ranch run by Dennis Hof who appears at the end of A Albert s book and now I know my gut feelings were rightThere s a now I know my gut feelings were rightThere s a of information the HBO series left out intentionally or not and compared to A Albert s better researched book it now is obvious the HBO show approximates an infomercial than anything else Every time I take the California Zephyr and go through Reno the On Board Chief of Services or one of his minions never fails to point out the famous Mustang Ranch located in a secluded valley twenty some miles out of Sparks Nevada If you ve ever been curious about what goes on and why in Nevada s brothels and the Mustang Ranch in particular you will find this a fascinating book I id Ms Albert a public health specialist had been interested for years in HIV and STD transmission and condom usage She was curious to measure the impact of legalized prostitution on these parameters Her first overtures to George Flint ordained minister wedding chapel owner and executive irector for the Nevada Brothel Association were rebuffed but she A Black Woman's Civil War Memoirs: Reminiscences of My Life in Camp With the 33rd U.S. Colored Troops, Late 1st South Carolina Volunteers didn give up Flint realized she was a serious researcher and paved the way for her to spend several weeks living not working at the famous Mustang Ranch in Storey County near Reno not in Reno and thatistinction is important and has historical roots Brothels can only be licensed legally in counties and Reno and Las Vegas have chosen not to o so That is itself an interesting story because one of the staunch opponents of legalized prostitution in Las Vegas has been Steve Wynn wealthy casino owner who publicly argues that it tarnishes the image of Las Vegas gambling and former mob mecca of the world Privately many speculate that the real reason is that unlicensed freelance prostitution which thrives in Las Vegas takes place in the hotels that own the casinos and therefore keeps the gamblers in the casinos where they belong The brothels are all located in remote areas away from the cities and that takes money away from the casinos Brothels are prohibited from advertising yet the freelancers have 14. Ys be with us The Mustang Ranch has never before given an outsider such access but fear of AIDS was hurting the business and the Ranch was eager to get publicity for its rigorous standards of sexual hygiene Albert was rawn into the lives of the women of the Mustang Ranch and what began as a public health project evolved into something intimate and ambitious a six year study of the brothel ecosystem its lessons and significance The women of the Musta. ,
