America’s most powerful legal brothel baron Dennis Hof is applauding the recent
arrests ofa slew of execs running the illegal prostitution-rife Backpage website
on underage pimping and sex trafficking charges, but is now challenging
law enforcement officials to go one step further–and legalizing
prostitution in the US.

“While the Bunny Ranch fully supports the actions by law enforcement
officials in California and Texas to take steps to end sex trafficking
and underage prostitution promoted on websites such as Backpage, these
measures fall short of offering any kind of alternative for the millions
of independent, adult sex workers that make an honest living as
courtesans,” said Hof, the owner of seven legal, licensed
brothels–including the world famous Bunny Ranch
(–throughout the state of Nevada. “The only rational
solution is to legalize prostitution nationwide, and using the Bunny
Ranch brothel as the model for how regulated, safe and secure bordellos
can serve the needs of working girls, and their customers alike.”

Illegal, unregulated prostitution in all fifty states allows sex
trafficking, underage prostitution, rape, robbery and disease
transmission to run wild–leaving websites like Backpage free to promote
such criminal and often deadly activities. At state-controlled brothels
such as the Bunny Ranch, medical supervision, strict age-screening
practices, condoms-required policies and law enforcement oversight has
completely eliminated these scourges.

“If all you do is shut down a website, it just results in the pimps and
girls going to another website, or even worse, turning to dangerous
street-walking hooking. Government officials have to offer a legal,
feasible path for adult sex providers to earn a living–many have
families, are going to college and supporting loved ones,” points out
Hof. “My brothel business model puts the vile pimps out of business,
stops underage girls from working illegally, and
ends sex trafficking, period!”
