Cake Frosting on Fish? – No More Prostitution – A Dirty Pickle! – Hot Topics 203
In this episode:
Residents of Nye and Lyon counties in Nevada submitted referendum petitions recently to ban brothels.
The Nye measure, like the one in Lyon, will ask voters to either uphold or strike down the county’s brothel ordinance, which establishes the procedure for regulating houses of prostitution in the county.
A group of residents in the county have been concerned about the brothels for some time.
“It’s been kind of an eyesore, and so we’ve been working on this for quite a while — how to do it, what we need to do to get people on board,” Fairbairn said. “It’s finally time especially with the things that are happening with Nye County. The citizens of Nye County have never voted about whether we have brothels in Nye County.” – Ron Fairbairn, a pastor in Pahrump
With four brothels in Lyon and Nye county each, if both measures qualify for the ballot and voters decide to ban brothels in both counties, about 40 percent of the state’s 21 brothels will be forced to close.
The group knows that there will be a fiscal impact of banning brothels from the county but suggested the brothels have a negative economic impact of their own.

“We know the money that the brothels bring in. But how many limousines come into our town, shop, buy and participate in what we do?” Fairbairn said.
The groups primary challenge is from brothel owner Dennis Hof who owns two of the four brothels in Nye County.
“Prostitution is not going away, and you either put it in the hands of the professionals like liquor, marijuana and gaming, or you have it in the hands of the criminals,” Hof said.
Brothels have existed in Nevada since the 19th century, and Nevada has formally regulated them since 1971. Any county with a population under 700,000 is allowed to license brothels if it chooses to do so.
Prostitution is currently illegal in Clark County, Washoe County, Carson City, Douglas County and Lincoln County, and there are 21 legal brothels in Nevada as of February 2018, in Lyon, Nye, Lander, Elko, White Pine, Mineral and Storey counties. There are four brothels in Nye County: Love Ranch South in Crystal and Alien Cathouse in Amargosa Valley, Chicken Ranch in Pahrump and Sheri’s Ranch in Pahrump. The Love Ranch, owned by Hof, temporarily closed earlier this year due to safety concerns over unapproved modifications but reopened last month.
