According to a CNN report, high gas prices are hurting Nevada’s brothel business. According to Geoffrey Arnold, president of the Nevada Brothel Owners’ Association–and isn’t Momma Arnold proud of her son’s accomplishments–truckers account for 75% of of the business at Nevada’s rural brothels. Some brothels are giving out gas cards to patrons, and have reduced prices.
But only 16 of the state’s 28 legal brothels are located in rural areas. The others, located in cities, cater to tourists and conventions, and their business has increased this year.
So mixed signals at the intersection of the economy and religion.Leave a comment
