Hookers from Moonlite Bunny Ranch testify for tax on prostitution

by

Nevada, the only state in the United States with legalized prostitution, is now considering adding a $5 tax to each sex act performed.  Surprisingly, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the most infamous brothel in the country, has come out in support of the new tax.

I'll take the one on the right.

I'll take the one on the right.

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch gained pop culture fame with the HBO series Cathouse.  Owner Dennis Hof, employee Madame Suzette, and hookers Airforce Amy, Brooke Taylor, and Chloe Daniels testified in favor of the tax.  Because of Nevada’s budget shortfall, the state is in need of new ways to generate Revenue.  Airforce Amy said, “If $5 per person can raise $2 million a year, I’m all for it.”

Since prostitution was legalized in Nevada in 1978, the state has never taxed it.  This seems like a pretty good way of making some revenue for the state.  You have to figure that a lot of the people that utilize Nevada’s unique laws are from out of state, so they aren’t even taking from the Nevada economy at large.  I find it a bit bizarre that hookers and owners of brothels would actively campaign for more taxation, but I suppose it helps with their public image.

Hell, they know how to get in the news and I doubt that an extra $5 is going to deter any of their potential clients.  Good call, Nevada.
