Nevada Brothels: A List of Fully Legal Bordellos

Updated on:

Looking for a pitstop in a Nevada cathouse?

Want to sample one of the many legal Nevada brothels?

The brothels in Nevada are some of the most famous in the world. Despite the best attempts of conservatives to close the venues, the state retains its legal right to keep prostitution legalized in its bordellos. And whilst Las Vegas itself has no legal whorehouses, there are still plenty of ranches located just outside Sin City that can satisfy the hordes of horny pleasure seekers.

In this Nevada Brothels guide, we give you a complete rundown of ALL the licensed brothels operating in Nevada. From Carson City to Washoe County, this is the only guide you need to the best (and only!) 100% legal bordellos in the USA.

Can’t afford to pay the rates for a Nevada courtesan? You can always try hooking up on a site like Adult Friend Finder or (for kinkier fantasies). Results are far from guaranteed, but if you get laid, it will be a LOT cheaper than one of these legendary Nevada bordellos!

Best Nevada Brothels by Area

Phew! That’s a lot of cathouses to choose from so which one will you be tempted by?

Well, we know that a lot of tourism to the state of Nevada is driven by visitors to either Reno in the West or Las Vegas in the South.

Both cities are ideally placed for tourism from California and the brothels in these parts of Nevada are among some of the most infamous.

Yet over in Elko and White Pine Counties, in the North and East respectively, there some great bordellos to hike out to.

It all depends on where you’re staying in the county and how far you want to travel.

Which is why we’ve split our guide by area so you can find the best brothel closest to you wherever you are in Nevada.

Just remember that prostitution is only legal in authorized brothels and not every county issue licenses for these venues to operate.

Northern Nevada

Covering Elko and Humboldt Counties, Northern Nevada borders the states of Oregon and Idaho.

Whilst brothels are legal in both counties, only Elko has currently any licensed venues but it has more than its fair share.

Situated around just three of the county’s cities of Wells, Elko and Carlin, you can find more than a third of Nevada’s whorehouses in this part of the state.

Bella’s Hacienda Ranch

623 8th Street, Wells, NV 89835

Secretive and Sweet, Your fantasies are our desires.”

Originally opened in 1950 as the Hacienda Ranch, Bella’s is owned by the provocative author of American Madam (a memoir of sexual empowerment), Bella Shauna Cummings.

Cummings has run this Elko County whorehouse since 1981 and is a hands-on Madam, greeting guests and making visitors feel welcome.

The ranch has a great reputation for working with guests on a budget to make sure everyone leaves fully satisfied. And they do this by offering a really comprehensive menu of services from a quickie or BJ to a full-on GFE, fetish sessions and roleplay.

Every erotic encounter is an experience you won’t forget and Bella’s Beauties are there to seduce you with their specialities.

There are around a dozen courtesans working at Bella’s and the line-up is pretty consistent with most women choosing to stick around for a few years before moving on.

At the moment, the bordello boasts a sizzling line-up of sweethearts which includes a hot sexy Asian goddess, a Russian beauty, Middle Eastern princess and energetic Chinese sex kitten!

Located slap bang in the middle of the small town of Wells, Bella’s is well kitted out with themed rooms and toys for all occasions. This includes a Jacuzzi and BDSM dungeon as well as a fully stocked bar so you can grab a cold beer before and after your stay.

It might not be the fanciest of bordellos in Nevada but Bella’s is certainly one of the friendliest and highly regarded. Regularly receiving five-star reviews, this is a traditional Nevada cathouse and a home from home for plenty of regular locals and returning tourists.

Bella’s Hacienda Ranch is open 24/7, 365 days a year and has plenty of on-site parking for trucks and cars.

The Desert Club

303 North 2nd Street, Battle Mountain, Nevada 89820

nevada brothels desert club

‘Come to the high desert and check out the “Wild Life”.

Reportedly one of the smallest brothels in Nevada with just five rooms, the Desert Club (not to be confused with the Desert Rose) was originally opened in the late 1800s.

After closing down in 1991 it was reopened in 2016 in its current guise and remains an intimate little cathouse to visit.

Usually just having three women in the bar to choose from, this is not a party central brothel and most customers are regulars who like to feel a part of this little ‘family’.

Warm, welcoming and very cosy, the Desert Club is also not one of those bordellos that oozes luxury or glamour.

Yet, the Desert Club consistently gets great reviews from its customers and though the choice is small they do offer a decent selection of services.

Pretty popular are the two-girl, whipped cream and shower parties but they can also provide a variety of massages with happy endings, GFE, shows and even some kinky specials.

From BDSM and golden showers to some niche fetishes, just ask if you have something particular in mind.

The Desert Club opens daily from 10.30am and remains open until 11.00pm.

Desert Rose Gentleman’s Club

357 Douglas St, Elko NV 89801

nevada brothels bellas desert rose

Taking customer service to whole new level!

One of several brothels located in Elko City, the Desert Rose Gentleman’s Club is located on the site of the old No. 1 Geisha and has formerly been known by other names including Mona Lisa Ranch and CharDon’s Club.

Opened for business in 2014 as the Desert Rose, it is a classy brothel known for being reasonably priced and offering a great atmosphere.

Reviews and feedback of this brothel are consistently excellent and most customers are quick to report positively on the high levels of service.

Warm and welcoming, there’s a great Vegas style bar at the Desert Rose and it’s here that you can grab a drink and get a line-up of available girls before heading for a private party. Each of the air-conditioned rooms has an individual feel to it and are both comfy and clean.

nevada brothels bellas desert rose bar
Image via Desert Rose Club (Facebook).

Guests can also opt for a jacuzzi bath or even take a luxurious steam shower with their host.

And the courtesans at the Desert Rose Club are well worth spending some extra time with! These are some high-class ladies who have helped earn the club a superb reputation for superior service.

As for the service, there’s a good mix of ways to party here whether you want a quick blowjob or private lap dance, erotic massage or full GFE.

It’s not a huge cathouse and there are usually around half a dozen women on hand to service clients and line-ups can (and do) change pretty regularly.

However, there are usually a few international options available and previous women at Desert Rose include those from Brazil, Australia, Mexico and West Africa.

The Desert Rose Gentleman’s Club & Legal Brothel is open daily from 4.00pm to 4.00am.

Donna’s Ranch

679 8th St, Wells, NV 89835

nevada brothels donnas ranch

Where the Wild West still lives!’

Originally opened close to the construction of the nearby Central Pacific Railway, Donna’s Ranch is an historic Nevada brothel.

Wells itself was a major pitstop for cattle driving cowboys and Donna’s has long been associated with the old Wild West.

As with most of its competition in this part of Nevada, this is a pretty basic brothel and you won’t find luxurious suites, glittering lounges and ultra-modern facilities. But Donna’s is clean, comfortable and friendly.

There’s a couple of private rooms as well as a massage treatment area, a decent lounge bar to whet your whistle at plus dance pole and hot tub.

nevada brothels donnas ranch wells
Image via Donna’s Ranch.

Above all, the prices here are pretty reasonable and the women are well experienced to offer satisfaction guaranteed.

But what about the quality of the women on offer?

As a small cathouse there are only a handful of courtesans available However, recent reviews since opening after the COVID19 lockdowns suggest that there are only one or two women to choose from.

We’d love to know whether this improves so definitely drop us a line if you’ve visited and there’s more of a choice.

However, the latest reviews suggest that these hardworking women are more than keeping their guests happy.

Open 24/7, these women have every right to be exhausted but definitely check them out if you are passing through.

Dovetail Ranch & Hot Springs

402 Highway 278 Carlin, NV 89822

nevada brothels dovetail ranch

A luxury adult spa resort with sensual massage rooms and hot springs’

Winner of the CWMC Small Brothel of the Year Award 2011, the Dovetail Ranch has seen several changes of ownership over the last two decades and, with this, plenty of remodelling.

A log cabin by design, the ranch has often been sold as a Wild West Saloon but now markets itself as an adult lounge and spa resort offering sensual and relaxing experiences.

A rose by any other name, the Dovetail Ranch is essentially another Elko County brothel offering top-class legal sex and adult entertainment.

But unlike some of its competitors, this brothel is situated in a rural landscape along the Humboldt River. Yet despite its idyllic rustic country setting, the ranch is just 5 minutes’ away from the I-80 and the small city of Carlin.

The main body of the ranch is the Bar & Pole Lounge where guests can kick back with the ladies to enjoy a drink, spin a tune on the jukebox and watch some erotic dancing.

A line-up will let you take in one of around half a dozen ladies including a regular cohort of sexy women who have all helped earn the ranch an incredible reputation.

Individual suites are all exceptionally clean and luxurious with VIP guests being able to upgrade for a more elite experience.

As well as the usual full service you can transform this from a quick ‘Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma’am’ into a full spa treatment. This includes erotic massage, body shampoo and more.

Of course, one of the major selling points for this Nevada brothel over its competitors is the fact it has a natural hot spring. This makes it an ideal place to really unwind and release some tension. It’s what turns the Dovetail Ranch from a standard cathouse into a proper spa.

nevada brothels dovetail ranch carlin
Image via Instagram (@thedovetailranch).

With plenty of space for truck parking (and turning) plus being so close to the highway it’s a popular pitstop for a lot of truckers and bikers but also tempts plenty of visitors from across the borders into Utah and beyond.

Overall, this is a friendly and small brothel which welcomes guests with a lot of warmth and makes it very hard to leave. Be warned, there is an addictive quality to the service here that might see you returning sooner than you think!

The Dovetail Ranch is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Inez’s D&D

232 S. 3rd Street Elko, Nevada 89801

nevada brothels inezs dd elko

Enthusiastic bedroom adventures’

One of two brothels located on the same street in Elko City, Inez’s is operated by the same management team as The Mona’s Ranch (see below).

So, whilst both venues are pretty different in style, they share a rota of the same selection of women.

In case you’re wondering, the D&D doesn’t stand for Dungeons & Dragons but a far more enticing combination of Diddling and Dancing!

And you can do both of things here at Inez’s with your choice of lady from a mix of Asian Spinners, Buxom Blondes and Raunchy Brunettes.

A typical brothel with a nice open bar lounge area you are welcome to pull up a stool and have a drink whilst getting to know the ladies or order a line-up. However, there are also some more private and discreet ways to getting your kicks.

Inez’s D&D offers a couple of options for shy guests including speed-dating or an intimate and date lounge. Both give you an opportunity to meet the ladies one by one in private before heading off for your own party time.

This brothel is really popular with locals from right around Elko County and beyond and there are a lot of regulars who return month after month for their share of the kicks.

And it’s not hard to see why. Inez’s has an authentic and friendly feel to it with its mix of no-nonsense spit and sawdust simplicity but with a professional touch of class. It’s a perfect introduction to the Nevada brothels; no airs and graces or Vegas style glamour but a solid welcome and satisfaction guaranteed,

We think Inez’s (and New Mona’s Ranch) are two of the best brothels in the state for anyone who is new to the sex industry. They’ll certainly both give you the best introduction to legalized prostitution plus the prices at both are very fair.

brothels nevada dancing and diddling inez

In fact, Inez’s is one of those brothels which specialize in the ‘care of virgins’ and you’d do no worse than to pick this bordello for your first-time experience.

Other services on offer include bachelor and birthday parties, erotic (and Nuru) massage, lap and pole dances, threesomes and more. Just enquire with the front desk to find out what fetishes and role play they can cater for… you’ll be surprised by what they can accommodate!

Inez’s is open as follows:

  • Sunday to Thursday – 10.00am to 1.00am
  • Friday & Saturday –10.00am to 2.00am

Walk ins are welcome but appointments can also be made 24/7 by prior arrangement.

The New Mona’s Ranch

Girls, Girls, Girls!!

The sister site to Inez’s D&D (see above), Mona’s Ranch is another brothel situated in Elko City. A miniature version of Las Vegas, there are several casinos in this small town but because you can also visit a brothel, it attracts plenty of visitors.

Located in what was once a private house (built in 1908), this is one of the state’s oldest brothels and is often referred to as the ‘historical Mona’s’.

Mona’s has all the usual trappings including comfortable, clean and private rooms, a warm and welcoming bar but is also has a fun cinema room too. This is a decent place to spend a date night and plenty of visitors enjoy cuddling up to their favorite lady for a real GFE.

Sharing their stable of ladies with Inez’s D&D, there are a dozen or more very experienced and  attractive women to while away some time with.

What’s nice is that the women of Mona’s spend some time on an open forum ( every Sunday to stay in touch with their regulars. It’s a good opportunity to ask questions of the girls before you visit and the site is updated with line up information and bio details.

Mona’s has a great reputation for its service and prices and receives solid ratings and reviews from is guests.

Yes, it might not be the most modern of brothels in Nevada but what it lacks in glitz and glamour it more than makes up for in personality.

Plus, just like its sister bordello, this is one of those cathouses which is perfect for first timers. In fact, the ladies at Mona’s LOVE to break a virgin in!

Mona’s is open as follows:

  • Sunday to Thursday – Midday to 3.00am
  • Friday & Saturday – Midday to 4.00am

Appointments can also be made 24/7 by prior arrangement.

Sue’s Fantasy Club

175 S 3rd St, Elko, NV 89801

nevada brothels sues fantasy club

Come drink ‘n mingle with the sexiest Asian girls in Nevada.

A speciality Asian brothel, Sue’s Fantasy Club is much less of traditional cathouse than the other Elko City bordellos.

The place is styled more like a rub and tug joint and it’s certainly erotic massage which puts them on the map. Offering guests a free ‘body shampoo’, there are few men who need more of an invitation to get soapy when there’s a hot naked Asian on offer!

Small but clean and comfortable, there are a few rooms where you can have a private party with your choice from a selection of between 4 and 8 ladies.

Hailing from countries like China, Korea and Thailand most of the girls are in their early 20s.

Get to know them first at the bar where you can ask for a line up or just watch as they work the pole or check them out on the mirrored dance floor.

Unlike most of the competition Sue’s is also open 24/7 which makes it pretty popular during the small hours.

Southern Nevada

Covering Nye, Clark, Lincoln and Esmeralda Counties, Southern Nevada is where you’ll find the original Sin City of Las Vegas.

Situated in Clark County, Las Vegas itself doesn’t have any legalized bordellos and prostitution is banned within the county limits.

Don’t let this stop you from enjoying yourself in a cathouse though as neighbouring Nye County has several notorious brothels to entertain you.

Alien Cathouse

2703 US-95, Amargosa Valley, NV 89020, USA

nevada brothels alien cathouse
Image via Alien Cathouse (Facebook).

Satisfying extra-terrestrial fantasies for horny earthlings!

Located close to the top-secret Area-51 USAF facility, there are prizes for guessing why this brothel is sci-fi themed!

One of several brothels that was once owned by the legendary Denis Hof, the Alien Cathouse was formerly known as Cherry Patch II before it was sold to Hof by Joe Richards in 2010.

The brothel changed hands again in 2018 when entrepreneur Raman Sharma purchased the business. Having no previous experience in the sex industry, Sharm was drawn to the site because of its proximity to the Area 51 Alien Center.

Together with Daddy D’s Rocket Diner (a 1950s style restaurant), gift shop and gas station, the Alien Cathouse is perfectly located for thrill-seeking sightseers.

It’s an 85-mile trip northwest of Las Vegas which takes just over an hour to reach but is well worth a visit, particularly if you are interested in checking out Area 51 as well.

A scandalous brothel with a bevvy of hot women (known as Cosmic Kittens) on hand to provide the ultimate fantasy, Alien Cathouse has a reputation for excellent service.

Offering everything from orgies, threesomes and private sex tapes to Girlfriend Experiences, oral sex and erotic massages this brothel can cater to all tastes.

Staff are really friendly here and are more than happy to discuss any particular fetishes or kinks so  that  they can match guests with the perfect Kitten.

nevada brothels alien cathouse whorehouse
Image via Alien Cathouse.

And the Cosmic Kittens are out of this world!

The line-up varies over time but can include some well-known faces at times with the Alien Cathouse sometimes hosting popular porn stars who are on tour.

There are typically around a dozen women working at the Alien Cathouse and include a good range of ‘types’, ages and specialisms.

Rooms in the brothel are all themed around outer space and have names like Holodeck or Atlantis Fantasy. But it’s the Alien Abduction and Probing Room which seems to be most popular for obvious reasons!

The building also has a full bar and free pool table making a great place to call in for a pitstop or just to look around.

Open 24/7, 365 days a year you can make a booking over the phone or by email (see website for more details). Alternatively, they also offer tours for sightseers.

Chicken Ranch

10511 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV 8906

nevada brothels chicken ranch

‘The World-Famous Historic Chicken Ranch’

Technically the closest bordello to Las Vegas, the origins of this infamous brothel are actually Texan.

The name of the brothel itself dates back to the same Chicken Ranch which features in that legendary film The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982).

Referring to the illegal brothel which operated in Fayette County from 1905 to 1973, the Nevada brothel after which it is named has stood in this part of Pahrump since 1844. A rural and pretty unremarkable whorehouse until then the reinvention of this brothel as Chicken Ranch has thrust this business onto the world stage.

Though the location of two venues is separated by 1,400 miles The Chicken Ranch in Nevada has a selection of furniture and fittings purchased from the original Texas brothel.

A nice little history though this may be, it’s actually the proximity of the Chicken Ranch to Las Vegas which makes it a hugely popular destination.

Just an hour west of Sin City, Pahrump has a couple of other whorehouses and day-trippers from the Neon Capital of Nevada are spoilt for choice.

To make the most of their location, the Chicken Ranch also offers free limo transport from Las Vegas.

The Chicken Ranch Dungeon is one of the brothel’s highlights and this BDSM haven is part of their 50 Shades Package of services. The den is fully equipped with a St. Andrew’s Cross, Cage, Throne and Peep Show Closet along with benches, padded walls and a huge kit of kinky toys.

And the Chicken Ranch has a couple of experienced Dominas who can make full use of this space giving the naughtiest of boys a satisfying but torturous time.

nevada brothels chicken ranch line up
Image via Twitter (@ChickenRanchNV).

In total there are around 22 ladies working at the Chicken Ranch with at least 8 or 9 available at any time. The choice does change from time to time so it’s worth checking out the website in advance to see who is in residence when.

The whole ranch is set up to keep guests entertained for as long as possible and visitors are warmly invited to spend a few hours at the Leghorn Bar and Chicken Ranch Strip Club. 

It’s a must-see tourist attraction and you don’t have to avail yourself of full service here to enjoy some sexy times. In fact, many visitors simply drop in to pick some merchandise from the Chicken Ranch store.

But if you do want to get a full experience here then check out their menu which includes the infamous Bungalow Parties.

Open 24/7, the Chicken Ranch is definitely one of the best brothels in Nevada but (be warned) it isn’t the cheapest.

Sheri’s Ranch

10551 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV 89061

The ONLY Nevada brothel that offers a hotel on property, Sheri’s Ranch is more than just a bordello but is also a resort and spa.

Just like the Chicken Ranch, Sheri’s is located an hour outside of Las Vegas but here the brothel is just one of a few reasons to stay awhile.

Offering guests upscale accommodation, an outdoor swimming pool, relaxing spa, sports bar and tennis courts, you can easily spend a few days out here.

And that’s not to mention the exquisite adult entertainment on offer!

  • Massage Parlor & Spa

And that’s not all, Sheri’s also has several themed bungalows including one styled around the 1960s, another bedecked like a jungle safari and the ever-popular King Arthur suite.

And their latest bungalow offers something even more thrilling!

The Sex Tape Room is kitted out with state-of-the-art smart technology, cameras and one-way mirrors which turns this bungalow into the ultimate pornstar fantasy!

Equipped with four cameras you can make your own porn movie to take away with you and using voice commands you can direct the whole  thing. Or you can simply activate the lights and mirrored window shade which means you can look out on the 20-acre ranch whilst no-one can see in. A thrilling option for anyone who likes exhibitionism but doesn’t quite want to go the whole hog!

And what about the women at Sheri’s?

Well, here’s where things really get premium.

With a line-up of more than 28 ladies per week, all rotating on a rota that covers a 24/7 basis, there are some amazing women here to choose from.

There’s no doubt that you can have an amazing time at Sheri’s Ranch but the fun here is going to cost you so make sure you win big in Las Vegas before booking your stay.

Open 24/7, Sheri’s operates a free limousine collection and drop-off from Sin City for its guests.

Sheri’s Ranch is open 24/7.

Eastern Nevada

Bordering Utah and a little of Arizona, the eastern section of Nevada is pretty unremarkable and is mainly made up of small mining towns.

Largely rural and mountainous, the only city of any note is Ely. With a population of just 4,500 people, there is only one brothel in this region.

Big Four Ranch

135 High St, Ely, NV 89301

World famous & oldest brothel – Always fun and tasty!’

One of the oldest brothels in Nevada, the Big 4 Ranch dates back to the 1880s.

The building was originally opened as Rainey’s Dance Hall but by the turn of the century it was a notorious whorehouse. The name was eventually changed in 1939 to the Big Four after the four men who owned it.

The brothel is situated in on the outskirts of Ely in a zone designated by the City Council as a ‘red-light district’.

Known locally as ‘Bronc Alley’, the Big Four is the last of the city’s brothels after the closure of the Stardust Ranch a few years ago.

Despite being an historic venue and looking a little tired from the outside the Big Four is a pretty modern brothel and boasts a great lounge bar and very comfortable suites.

nevada brothels big4

So, what does the only cathouse in time have to offer its customers?

Well, before the Covid outbreak the ranch offered a delicious selection of Asian ladies for full service. From Korean and Thai women to Japanese and even some Mexican choices this was great little whorehouse for anyone looking for an out-of-town exotic beauty.

Unfortunately, the Big Four Ranch’s website is out of date so we don’t currently have any up-to-date confirmation of their line ups.

If you’ve recently visited this Nevada brothel and want to share your experience, why not drop us a line?

The Big Four Ranch is open 24/7.

Western Nevada

Bordering California, Western Nevada boasts the second most popular tourist destination of the state, Reno.

Unfortunately, the ‘Biggest Little City in the World’ is situated in Washoe County which currently bans brothels.

However, visitors to Reno don’t have far to travel with several options within less than an hour’s travel.

And, for those travellers between Las Vegas (in the South) and Reno, there’s also an excellent pit stop along the way in the shape of the Wild Cat Brothel in Mineral County.

Bunny Ranch

69 Moonlight Rd, Carson City, NV 89706

nevada brothels bunny ranch
Image via Bunny Ranch.

Historically known as the Moonlight Ranch, this brothel was originally opened in 1955 and is one of Nevada’s most infamous cathouses.

Much of this notoriety is due to the fact that the brothel was feature in an HBO documentary series aired in 2002-2005 called Cathouse. The cameras followed the lives of the brothel’s courtesans in a candid look behind the scenes.

The ranch is another of Denis Hof’s group of bordellos and was the first cathouse that the infamous Nevada brothel owner purchased. Hof was reportedly a regular at the Moonlight Ranch before he bought the business in 1992.

After renovating and upgrading his beloved ranch, Hof’s flagship brothel was influential in raising the perception of the legal sex industry in Nevada.

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch remains one of the state’s best brothels and boasts luxury accommodation which, in turn, has attracted some of the hottest courtesans in the country.

Known simply as Bunnies, the ranch has a reputation for playing host to numerous touring adult movie stars and customers can get a REAL Porn Star Experience!

Other tempting delights from their sex menu include Champagne Blowjobs, BDSM and Fetish Specials plus Private Sex Tapes, Orgies and Erotic Massage.

With its high-quality temptresses and luxurious accommodation, there’s no doubt that the Bunny Ranch is still a superior choice but, be warned, the prices here are set to match.

Open 24/7, 365 days a year, you can get a free limo out to this top Nevada brothel directly from Reno or surrounding areas.

Kit Kat Guest Ranch

‘The World-Famous Kit Kat Ranch complete with Sex Kittens’

A sister site to the Moonlite Bunny Ranch and the Sagebrush Ranch, the Kit Kat Guest Ranch is located just outside Carson City. This part of Mound House is known as America’s Red Light District and you can find a strip club/cabaret here as well.

Purchased by Denis Hof in 2012, the brothel underwent extensive remodelling before finally reopening in 2016.

Now incorporating luxurious VIP suites complete with sunken whirlpool tubs, enormous beds and sumptuously comfortable furnishings, this is a top-class brothel offering high-rollers a way to splash their winnings.

That being said, their lounge bar is pretty reasonably priced and not unlike in some strip joints you find the cost of drinks is not inflated.

The ranch also has a two-bedroom apartment adjacent to the brothel which can be hired for longer stays.

As for the Kitties themselves, because the area is home to so many brothels, the ranch has a rolling selection of a few hundred women who work in West Nevada. But as a high-end club, it’s usually the highest quality girls who get into the Kit Kat Ranch line-ups.

Customers usually have a choice from between 10 and 20 women at any one time and these are often a mix of All-American bombshells as well as some Latina, European and Asian ladies.

And just like at their other sister sites, the ladies here all offer a fantastic selection of full service options. From roleplay, fetish fulfilment and GFE to PSE, threesomes and just a regular quick lay the Kitties aim is to have you purring with satisfaction.

Overall, this is a popular choice of brothel for visitors to Reno and the reviews for the Kit Kat Ranch are consistently excellent. It was Sigmund Freud who said that time spent with a cat is never wasted but we’d like to change that to Kitties. You certainly won’t regret spending out on these fine pussycats!

The Kit Kat Guest Ranch is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Have Hot Sex with a Porn Star at the Love Ranch!’

Formerly owned by Denis Hof and sometimes known as Love Ranch North, this brothel has had many names over the last thirty years including:

  • Madame Kitty’s Fantasy Ranch 
  • Miss Kitty’s Cathouse
  • Kitty’s Pussycat Lounge 
  • BunnyRanch Two

Situated down Kit Kat Drive in the heart of America’s Legal Red Light District, the Love Ranch is basically an overflow brothel for the Moonlite Bunny Ranch (see below).

Offering pretty much the same line-up, the house has several well decorated and themed rooms but if you’re heading to this area then you’re pretty much getting the same deal here.

That’s not to say we’d put you off Love Ranch as it has its own charm and plenty of regulars prefer this house to the other bordellos on Kit Kat Drive.

Far from it, just like at the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, you can pay for sex with a pornstar here including the notorious Air Force Amy.

Ladies here are known as Lovers and there’s always a decent selection to choose from. Again, they are all from the same stable as the Ranch’s other brothels so if you don’t see anything you fancy then you can always go and browse around the other cathouses. After all, where else in the country can you go where there are three brothels all within spitting distance of each other!?

Open 24/7, the Lovers at Love Ranch are always on hand to offer customers an unforgettable experience.

‘Beautiful courtesans, world-class ladies for your pleasure’

The world-famous Mustang Ranch Resort & Spa is situated tantalizingly close to Reno and just a 15-minute drive from the city airport.

This proximity to the state’s second largest entertainment hub makes this brothel a really popular one.

The original Mustang Bridge Ranch was opened in the 1965s with the site offering ‘comfort’ from a series of trailers but was just another illegal whorehouse. However, the site was sold to Joe Conforte in 1967 whose political influence helped make this the first legalized brothel in Nevada (1971).

In 1999 the Mustang Ranch was seized by the federal government due to Conforte’s latter convictions relating to tax fraud. The buildings and fixtures were sold off to Lance Gilman who moved them to his Wild Horse Adult Resort & Spa (five miles east of the original site).

The Mustang Ranch offers Reno tourists a pleasure pit-stop to rival any of the brothels down in the south of Nevada.

With a big lounge bar and restaurant with a performance stage they showcase plenty of ta-tas to go with your tacos.

As for the full-service options, they have an extensive pleasure menu which includes some delicious options for foreplay including:

  • Nude massage
  • Breast massage
  • French Tease
  • Fire & Ice
  • Wild Horse Chair Party
  • Bubble Bath

Plus, you can also choose one of several sexy shows designed to stimulate, titivate and innervate!

Full pleasure can be yours from a basic straight lay to a ‘Wild Horse Round-up’ or you can opt for some of the house specialities which include:

  • Bungalow Party
  • Jacuzzi Party
  • VIP Ranch Party
  • Ménage à Trois

And the line-up at Mustang Ranch?

Well, all we can say is that these fine fillies are all more than worthy of a stud or two. A dozen or so women make up the stable and include some Latina beauties, Californian beach babes and sultry vixens.

What’s nice about this ranch is that the website offers up a collection of free video clips so that guests can check out the line-up online.

The Mustang Ranch is open 24/7.

A full-service sex vacation spot’

Located in the state capital of Carson City just 30 minutes’ south of Reno, the Sagebrush Ranch is another of the Denis Hof stable of brothels. So close in fact that the ranch offers complimentary car service from Reno and surrounding cities.

The ranch is surrounded by breath-taking views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and is situated directly opposite the KitKat Ranch (see above).

Originally opened in the 1980s but destroyed by a fire in 1999, the Sagebrush was relocated to these new premises.

And this is a pretty luxurious brothel if you compare it to some of the spit and sawdust cathouses located in Northern Nevada.

Facilities include VIP suites which are more like five-star hotels, Jacuzzis and a pretty grand lounge bar. Certainly, this is a brothel where you can enjoy some R&R as well as some TLC.

As for the girls, well, the Sagebrush Starlets make for a really impressive line-up and there are few other brothels that can boast such beauty. From petite brunettes and hourglass blondes to alt-sex Dominas and BBWs there is something to tickle any fancy.

The stable includes a selection from over 24 women with 4-10 ladies on rota at any one time.

And between these hot seductresses they offer a really comprehensive range of ways to entertain their guests. From offering a Girlfriend or Pornstar experience through to kinks and fetishes, erotic massage and quickies there’s plenty to like about your choices.

Fancy an orgy? Threesome? What about some exciting roleplay or a bit of BDSM? The girls here have heard it all before and there are few things off limits.

The Sagebrush Ranch is open 24/7.

Wild Cat Brothel

‘Tell us your fantasy and we’ll make them come true’.

As mentioned in our intro to this section, the Wild Cat Brothel is a unique brothel which sits directly on the highway in between Las Vegas and Reno. It’s location makes this a perfect pit-stop between two of Nevada’s most popular landmark cities.

Formerly known as the Playmate Ranch, the building is pretty recognizable from its iconic Grecian columns surrounding it.

It’s a small house and there are generally only 3 women available at any time which kind of dispenses with any need for an official line-up. Instead, customers are warmly welcomed into the cosy lounge bar to chat with all the girls and have a beer or two before making any decisions.

The owner is a former trucker himself and he has brought a authenticity to this Nevada cathouse which is different to those you might find in LV or Reno. This is no glitzy bordello with spinning beds and fancy spas; instead, the Wild Cat is a traditional brothel offering straight up sex at straight up prices.

That being said, the girls accommodate plenty of kinks and fetishes with their VIP suite offering up a whole host of BDSM accessories and furnishings. This includes a St. Andrew’s Cross and bondage gear plus there’s also a full-sized hot tub.

The Wild Cat Brothel might not be the biggest or best brothel in Nevada but they do offer a solid service.

Open 8.00am to 1.00am, it’s well worth making this a pitstop if you’re travelling between Reno and Las Vegas.
