Officials Approve Shady Lady "Stud Farm"

Officials Approve Shady Lady "Stud Farm"

Nevada's Shady Lady brothel has finally won approval of its plan to hire the state's first male prostitute for female customers. (Score?) But, it wasn't just a rubber stamp approval — officials stipulated that the men must wear condoms and undergo weekly STD tests.

Still, some health officials are worried about the health risks posed not by the male prostitutes, but by the female customers. They say unlike female prostitutes male sex workers won't be able to check their female customers' genitals for outward signs of disease. But making a superficial assessment of someone's sexual health sounds like less-than-safe sex anyway. Condoms and STD tests sound like a good plan to me!

To Anon #1. That's what viagra is for. ;) I agree staple salad. Prostitution does need to be legalized and education does need to take place. Law enforcement also need to be there to show that violence against working girls or guys is wrong and that it won't slide.

I think more states need to legalize prostitution, and power to the male (and female) prostitutes in Nevada! I mean, which would you rather see, underground prostitution rings of men and women forced into sex slavery, without regulations to get tested and wear condoms, in environments where they could be killed or beaten with nobody batting an eye; or legal brothels where the prostitutes get tested frequently, have to wear condoms, are in the business because they want to be (heck, get laid AND get money, what's not to like!?), and in a safe environment where a prostitute can sue if they are beaten by their employer and safe from getting killed by customers?

To answer #9: There has never been an HIV outbreak at any Nevada brothel and STD outbreaks in general are very rare. The most common outbreaks that have occurred are chlamydia and gonorreah, but again, quite rare. An applicant for work in a legal brothel is tested for HIV (and other STDs) before ever beginning work. If tested positive for HIV, they are eternally barred from ever working in a brothel. Condoms are required by law to be used in all brothel activity. I got most of this information from the Nevada State Health Division AIDS Program, so if you're interested in finding out more Google should help :) Of course even legal prostitution cannot be guaranteed 100% risk free, but it is very unlikely to contract anything. The concept of legal prostitution is probably such a foreign concept to other states that it seems risky and dangerous, but it is really quite safe. As I've already stated, there is no way I'd ever be able to go to a brothel and feel okay about it. Yet, if someone else really wants to purchase sexual companionship, I feel safer that a legal option is there rather than resorting to street hookers or illegal escort services where health checkups are not required.

I can't even imagine women going to this. I would be interested in a follow up in 6 months.

I live in Nevada, born and raised here, and legal prostitution is virtually very safe. Brothels take necessary precautions to ensure that both the prostitute and the customer are clean and STD free. Females also undergo weekly STD checks (and are required to be on birth control of course), so to answer flickster- yes, females have the same regulations. I'm not a prostitute myself (never could be one!) nor could I ever feel okay going into a brothel for male company, but it's never been a health concern here. If it was, the business of legal prostitution probably wouldn't still be around. I'm not sure how many women will be interested in male prostitutes, but I'm kind of interested to see where it goes. I've always thought if a woman wanted no-strings-attached male company for a few hours, legal male prostitution would be a safer way to go about it than meeting a stranger in a bar. However, out of all my years living in Nevada, I've never once heard a woman say she wishes she could get with a male prostitute haha... so we'll see.

Thinking economics the "turnaround" time is going to be a lot longer. I don't want to moralise, but I think it is very sad that some men pay for sex anyway and I don't think many women would do likewise. Many of us could go out tonight and get laid if we wanted to at no charge.

Aren't those all the types of regulations that the ladies should have too? I mean if I was gonna go Pro, i'd require condoms, and I'd get testing as often as I could afford (most likely monthly) because it's about your health. There's just too many risks to say that men have to be more careful because guys can hide diseases just as well as women can. it's not a gender thing, it's a disease thing.

Yeah, I'd say condoms are the best way to prevent the spread of disease. Sure you could see if a male customer (or probably female) had a bad herpes outbreak, but how many times have we heard that we have to get checked by a doctor for STD's because so many have no symptoms?

Prostitution is a risky business and I wouldn't visit a Male Pro because I know not all STD's have outward symptoms, however I think it's great that men are starting to play the game too.
