Question:
In stressed economic times, many politicians are looking into various new avenues to bring in revenue to cities and states throughout the US. Currently, a few Nevada politicians are kicking around the idea of trying to allow prostitution in Clark County, which is where Las Vegas resides. Nevada is the only state that allows prostitution brothels. State law allows any county less than 400,000 population to allow brothels. However, Clark County population is far above the current limit. Besides the $100,000 annual license fee for a brothel, the increase in tax revenue is estimated to be in the millions per year. What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

(Please note: Since 1986, when mandatory testing began, not a single brothel prostitute has ever tested positive for HIV. The mandatory condom law was passed in 1988.)

Reader Poll Replies:

I have no problems with legal prostitution, it would take street walkers off the Las Vegas streets and make the place look better if nothing else.  Gloria D.  Nyc, NY

I have visited the brothels outside Reno and it was well operated and served a great community service and brought in a lot of money in taxes.  Why not, anything goes in Las Vegas and this would be the last item of entertainment.  David G, TX

I do not live in Clark County but as a visitor would have no problem with legalizing prostitution. Everyone knows, while not "legal" it still goes on and the revenue is definitely needed. Eddie Schulz  Urbana, OH

This one of the reasons I go to Reno.. Short drive to The Bunney Ranch and the Kit Kat.   Gringo  Austin, Texas

Fine with me, just another revenue source on a service that is going to happen.  Betty L.  Trenton NJ

I don't think it should be allowed. I'm not against it, but I beleive it take away the glimmer of Vegas. Now at least it's a family town.  Mike  Florence az

As long as brothel management adheres to specific guidelines regarding health and safety issues and honest reporting, legalizing prostitution could be just the boost the State needs. As a business, a brothel should have a detailed 'operations manual' available to its employees/gov't, and on-going training/screening to provide the highest
quality services to its clients. If the State legislature needs a reason to increase the population limits, use an extra percentage point as a bartering tool.  Lucynda   Amherst, NY

Works for me, might solve a lot of problems on the streets and gives the city more tax revenue.  J. Barker  TX 

It does not bother me what they do, that is something that does not interest me.  Betty L.  Miami FL
