CARSON CITY – The madam of a rural Nye County brothel says the applications from men who want to be prostitutes are starting to roll in.
Bobbi Davis, owner of the Shady Lady Ranch about 125 miles from Las Vegas, said she has received about 25 telephone calls and 10 men have sent in their pictures and other information.
But some of these men don’t understand they are not going to be servicing “the most beautiful women,” Davis said. The man will have to work with any woman who picks the man from the lineup, Davis added.
The men have been told to send in a picture wearing only shorts. It will probably be a month before the first man is hired, she said.
There won’t be any test runs for the men before they are hired. “We don’t play in our own backyards,” said Davis.
Since Davis announced her intention to hire male prostitutes, she has gotten calls from interested men in Las Vegas, rural Nevada and other states.
Yet to be cleared up is the code in Nye County on houses of prostitution referring to female body parts. She said she hopes that can be resolved without going to court.
George Flint, spokesman for the Nevada Brothel Association, said the administrative code in the state involving houses of prostitution is built on the female anatomy.
