As a proud resident of sin city and an adult entertainment professional, I often find myself caught in a discussion about whether or not it’s better for a gentleman to illegally hire a Las Vegas escort or to journey to a brothel on the outskirts of the city and partake of the legal pay-to-play services offered there.

Prostitution is not legal in Las Vegas. However, It is widely known that several of the Las Vegas escort services advertised online provide illegal prostitution (sex for money). When one considers that many of these escorts are conveniently located near the strip and can even be sent directly to a client’s hotel room, it’s easy to understand why hiring an escort is so enticing for Las Vegas visitors.

The primary reason not to hire an escort for sex in Las Vegas is because it’s illegal. Any man who hires a Las Vegas escort risks being caught in a sting operation set up by the LVPD, which will net him a criminal record and damage his reputation forever. Amazingly, this reason is usually not sufficient to convince punters that they shouldn’t hire illegal Las Vegas prostitutes. Most men are deluded by the “it could never happen to me” mindset and require additional reasons why they should visit legal Nevada brothels.

Below are three (of many) reasons why state-licensed brothels in Nevada are superior to Las Vegas escorts.


1. Discretion

If Elliot Spitzer visited a legal brothel for his sexual trysts instead of hiring the Emperors Club VIP  escort service he would very likely still be a successful politician. Since Nevada brothels are state licensed institutions that openly provide legal prostitution services, they will never be the subject of police raids or federal investigations attempting to expose illegal “prostitution rings”.

Additionally, brothel employees go to great lengths to maintain the anonymity of guests visiting their establishments. Brothels have been operating legally in Nevada for over 40 years, discreetly servicing 400,000 men and couples annually. Nevada brothel representatives are trustees of their client’s most intimate secrets – and these secrets stay secret, forever.

2. Safety

The women who work at legal brothels in Nevada are required by law to be screened weekly for sexually transmitted diseases. Legal brothels only practice safe sex, ensuring the safety and health of customers and sex workers. There has never been a case of an STD or HIV as a result of an encounter at a legal brothel in Nevada.

Since escorts promising sex-for-money operate against the law, there are no state requirements in place to maintain the safety of their clients. There are no health standards or best practices for illegal prostitution. When a guy hires an escort in Las Vegas, he’s literally gambling with his life.

3. Veracity

A common scam utilized by Las Vegas escort agencies is the “bait and switch”. This is when an agency uses very attractive women in their advertising to generate interest from potential clients. When the excited customer schedules a visit with the gorgeous escort, he is very often disappointed to meet an entirely different woman from the one presented in the ads.

The line ups at most of the established legal brothels always feature real women who are actually available. Photos are representative of the women pictured and are kept up to date and current.

Individuals who work in illegal prostitution are con artists and dirty hustlers with no regard for their personal reputation. To expect credibility from criminals is naïve. The escort game in Las Vegas is a crap shoot. Customers hiring illegal prostitutes might get the service they expect on occasion, but only a legal brothel delivers hot sexual encounters with legitimately lovely women every single time.

    “Individuals who work in illegal prostitution are con artists and dirty hustlers with no regard for their personal reputation.”

    I must respectfully disagree with this generalization. Girls found on Backpage are generally the con artists and hustlers that you mentioned. Ladies found on and, however, are anything but. Both of those are close-knit communities that I belong to, and have never encountered a bait and switch, upsell, or scam from any lady I’ve seen. Any hint of management or trafficking is dealt with quickly and is anonymously reported to those that can help the lady in jeopardy.

    Additionally, discretion is paramount in those communities. I have never felt that I might be outed or threatened.

    So while those communities partake in illegal activities, I have enjoyed a remarkably safe and enjoyable couple of years of fun.

      Verification services like the one you mention above are independent businesses that claim to make the illegal sex business safer for clients and prostitutes. For a fee, they take your personal (employment) information in order to verify that you are a “legitimate client”.

      This process, of course, guarantees nothing except that a gentleman’s personal data will be released to a third party company – a company that takes advantage of the fact that the illegal prostitution industry is unsafe and devoid of standards. For obvious reasons, most men prefer not to trust services of this nature and the vast majority of escort agencies and independent escorts do not require that customers be verified via such a paid service. So, this attempt to create a safety standard in an illegal atmosphere is a thinly effective smoke-and-mirrors show at best.

      The highest degree of safety and discretion can only be found in a legal brothel, where real quality and security standards exist and are enforced by the state of Nevada.

        “…most men prefer not to trust services of this nature and the vast majority of escort agencies and independent escorts do not require that customers be verified via such a paid service.”

        I see only independents…never agencies. The scene in Las Vegas preys on the uneducated tourist and those that are inexperienced. I am neither. Any independent that doesn’t screen through P411 is automatically added to my personal blacklist. I simply won’t risk seeing them. I play safely, and know that I’ll be able to continue to play safely in Nevada because of P411.

        While your establishment is legal, it is also geared towards the tourists who have more money than sense. Upsells are the norm with legal brothels, while with P411 independents a flat rate is charged, with any and all services available. Additionally, 100% of the donation goes to the lady. She doesn’t have to split with anyone.
