Brothel Madam Reveals the Empowering Upside to Legal Sex Work

“One of the many positive impacts of the [#MeToo] movement is the discussion it has generated surrounding how women have traditionally been mistreated in the American workplace,” writes Dena in the SherisRanch.com blog post. “Sex work is a stigmatized field, so it’s no surprise that sex workers are often left out of conversations about women in the workplace.

“This is unfortunate, not only because there are so many women across this country that practice some form of sex work as a profession, but also because sex workers operating in legalized conditions are often among the most financially successful and self-reliant professional women in the United States.

Dena writes that Sheri’s Ranch has “cultivated a workplace model where women providing sexual services can thrive in an environment that is fair, safe, respectful and lucrative.” She adds that its courtesans have the freedom to decide how much to charge for their services. “Don’t put a limit on what a woman can ask for and you’ll discover that her clients will pay her what she desires.”

But more importantly, Dena emphasizes, the Ranch gives its employees control of each sexual encounter.

“At the brothel, no sex worker is obligated to perform services with any client. All sexual activity is 100% consensual and women can refuse any customer at any time for any reason,” adding that she also has “a zero-tolerance policy for anyone that comes into the brothel and unfairly criticizes, insults, or demeans the sex workers or their customers.

“These women, in the face of stigma, are pioneers in the incredibly successful 50-year legal prostitution experiment in Nevada. It’s too easy for us doing the day-to-day work to forget that these women are making history – and setting an example for why prostitution should be legalized throughout the United States.”

Prostitution has been legal in certain Nevada counties since the early 1970s, in the form of licensed and regulated rurally-located brothels.
