There is a push in Nevada right now to ban all brothels and Dennis Hof, the owner of the Bunny Ranch, isn't too happy about it.
PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) — A state marketed as a place where people can indulge in all manner of sins is confronting its status as the only place in America where you can legally pay someone for sex.
A coalition of religious groups and anti-sex trafficking activists has launched referendums to ban brothels in two of the seven Nevada counties where they’re legally operating. The effort dovetails with a campaign by the state’s most famous pimp for a seat in the state Legislature.
Dennis Hof, who has half a dozen brothels operating in the two counties and starred in the HBO adult reality series “Cathouse,” is challenging incumbent Assembly member James Oscarson of Pahrump in a Republican primary Tuesday.
Hof said Nevada “is the last of the live-and-let-live states” and was built on “gaming, liquor, girls and mining.”
“It’s awful that people would come in and try to change that culture, that they want to inflict their moral values on the rest of us,” he said.
