Nevada Body Rubs and Sensual Massage: A City By City Guide

Looking for a body rub or sensual massage in Nevada?

Nevada has a reputation for its liberal minded approach to the hedonistic and is famously the only state in the USA where brothels are fully licensed and prostitution is legal. As a result of so many adult heading to Nevada seeking pleasures of the flesh, it is no surprise that many massage parlors also offer a menu of services designed to stimulate and arouse their clients. However, not all massage parlors are licensed and there is a big difference between those that are and those that aren’t in terms of legality.

In this guide, we take a look at what kinds of massage services are available in Nevada, city by city as well as looking at the difference between an unlicensed and a licensed venue.

What are Body Rubs and Sensual Massage?

Essentially body rubs and massages are perfectly legal and though physical contact is made between masseuse and client, the sole intention of the service is not generally deemed to be one of a sexual nature. Sensual and erotic body rubs can stimulate and arouse the receiver but as long as no ‘prostitution’ takes place on unlicensed premises.

Prostitution is legal in some parts of Nevada but is illegal in Clark County (and Las Vegas) however the state does have licensed brothels where you can receive sexual favors in exchange for a fee.

However, you should be aware that prostitution involves more than just sexual intercourse and legally body rubs that include ‘happy endings’ are also considered a part of the same service. In fact, anyone who enjoys these services in an unlicensed venue runs the same risks as a person who is solicited from the street.

According to state law, a prostitute is defined as ‘someone who, for a fee, engages in sexual intercourse, oral-genital contact or any touching of the sexual organs or other intimate parts of a person for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of either person’.

By this definition, if you pay a masseuse to touch your genitals or to run their body against you in a way that is designed to sexually stimulate you or get you aroused then that could constitute prostitution.

In reality, many massage studios operate quite legally across both Nevada and the USA without getting into any hot water due to the nature of the body rubs they perform. Tantric massage, for instance, is designed specifically to arouse the sexual energy of the receiver using sensual touch. Lingam massage is a type of traditional Asian body rub that is focused on the phallus whilst prostate massage is also an acknowledge technique.

Overall, the massage parlors that offer sensual body rubs will commonly provide what is known as a ‘happy ending’ by manually stimulating clients to orgasm as part of the service. Whilst this can constitute a ‘grey area’, it is perfectly legal in Nevada if it takes place at a licensed venue.

What’s the Difference Between Licensed and Unlicensed Venues

The key to staying on the right side of the law is to ensure that the massage parlor you visit (or brothel) is a licensed one.

As well as asking the parlor if it holds a license there are some key things to look out for when it comes to identifying a licensed parlor vs an unlicensed one.

Many unlicensed parlors:

  • Do not display their list of services and fees.
  • Are open later than 9.00pm or earlier than 8.00am.
  • Serve alcoholic drinks.
  • Have staff that wear revealing, skimpy or erotic clothing.
  • Offer to touch your genitals.
  • Have two-way mirrors in their treatment rooms.

Of course, there are some massage parlors that provide erotic and stimulating body rubs that do not include any form of prostitution. You are the judge of what form of massage you want to receive so it is beholden on you to ensure that you choose one that is suitably licensed.

Body Rubs and Sensual Massage in Nevada – City by City

We’ve included all of the massage parlors (and brothels that provide massage services). However, it is worth bearing in mind that services vary by salon and sometimes by the attendant on duty. Whilst one parlor may have a reputation for providing erotic body rubs, things change and masseuses change.

Battle Mountain

Situated in north central Nevada, the Desert Club brothel (303 N 2nd St, Battle Mountain, NV 89820) provides erotic massage with a guaranteed happy ending.

Carlin in the north of Nevada is situated on the state highway and gets a lot of passing traffic from visitors to and from Reno. There are a couple of licensed brothels where you can get a massage. Both open 24/7, you will be paying more than you would in a massage parlor here and not necessarily getting the best body rub but you will certainly get a happy ending and maybe more.

Carson City

Carson City has several brothels that offer a range of erotic massage services in addition to its sex menu. Bear in mind that most of the women are not trained masseuses and the service you get will be more expensive than in a specialist massage parlor. However, if you are looking for massage with something extra then you will be guaranteed to find it at one of these licensed brothels:

All four brothels are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Situated on the eastern side of the state, Elko is the largest city and county seat of Elko County. It has a population of around 20,000 people but has four licensed brothels. You can certainly get a sensual massage at any one of these venues.

  • Desert Rose, 357 Douglas St, Elko, NV 89801 – Open daily from 4.00pm to 4.00am
  • Inez’s D&D, 232 S3rd St, Elko, NV, 89801 – Open daily from 10.00am -2.00am
  • Mona’s Ranch, 103 S 3rd St, Elko, NV, 89801 – Open daily from 10.00am to 4.00am
  • Sue’s Fantasy Club, 175 S 3rd St, Elko, NV, 89801 – Open 24 hours per day, seven days a week

Prices are not advertised but, as legal brothels, the rates are going to be higher than your average massage parlour. Expect to pay anything from $60-$100.


Ely has a licensed brothel where you can get a sensual and erotic massage with satisfaction guaranteed. The rates at brothels are higher than your standard massage parlor but do ensure that you get more than just a happy ending.

The Stardust Ranch is open 24/7 and can be found at 190 High St, Ely, NV 89301.

Their new phone number is 775 289-4569.

Located south of Las Vegas, Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada with a population of approximately 310,000 people. Like Sin City, it is well served by massage parlors that offer good body rubs and sensual extras.

Fees vary by venue but are on a par with those you will find in Las Vegas being around $55-$70 per treatment (plus tips).

We cannot vouch for the licensing status of the known massage parlors in Henderson, therefore we cannot link to them on this site.

Las Vegas

As you would expect, given the huge numbers of pleasure seekers hitting Sin City, Las Vegas has a large number of massage parlors and salons that offer both body rubs and erotic massage plus more. Most are Asian and Chinese salons that principally offer foot massage. Most are not licensed but many offer more than just a foot rub.

Though technically a town and not a city, Pahrump has the reputation for being the location of a couple of Nevada’s licensed brothels, these being the closest to Las Vegas city. Both bordellos will offer erotic body rubs and happy ending massage but the town also has a sensual massage parlor.

Details of all three venues can be found below:

Sheri’s Ranch

10551 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV, 89061

A legal and fully licensed brothel, Sheri’s Ranch does also provide erotic massage. They provide a selection of treatments including breast massage, happy ending massage and reciprocal body massage with happy ending.

Prices are at the discretion of the ladies themselves and most brothels do not advertise their prices. In general, the close a brothel is to Las Vegas, the higher the rates and, as both Sheri’s and the Chicken Ranch are the only two bordellos within an hour of the city, rates are usually sky-high…even for a massage.

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

The World Famous Chicken Ranch

10511 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV, 89061

The situation for massages at the Chicken Ranch is the same as at Sheri’s Ranch, prices are high but service can include a lot more than just a body rub.

The Chicken Ranch is open 24/7.


Reno is known for being the biggest little city in the world and offers much the same by way of adult entertainment that you can expect from Las Vegas. Similarly to Sin City, Reno is well served by adult massage parlors, all catering for more than just a body rub. Prices in Reno are usually a little cheaper than in Las Vegas and the majority of these salons charge $60 for a treatment.

Most of the masseuses are Asian in origin with a mix of Thai, Chinese and Korean plus some parlors that have Latina, European and Caucasian ladies.

We cannot verify the licensing status of the known massage parlors in Reno, therefore we cannot link to them on this site.

Opening times vary but are in general from around 8.00am to around 9.00pm.


Situated in the west of the state about 4 miles east of Reno, Sparks City is in Washoe County with a population of around 100,000 people. It’s proximity to Reno makes it a popular place for travellers who want to stay away from the bright lights of the littlest big city. More importantly for seekers of erotic pleasures, Sparks is the location of the famous brothel, the Mustang Ranch.

This world-renowned bordello, of course, offers adult massage services and you can book all kinds of massage services with this venue.

The city also has an Asian massage salon.

Mustang Ranch

1011 Wild Horse Canyon Dr, Sparks, NV 89434

You are going to be guaranteed a happy ending and certainly more if you book a massage at the Mustang Ranch. Unfortunately, the service won’t come cheap and there is no certainty that your companion is any good at performing a body rub either.

The ladies are independent contractors and set their own rates, but the minimum prices are generally $100.

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


Located on the eastern borders of the state, Wells has a popular licensed brothel in Donna’s Ranch (679 8th St, Wells, NV 89835) where you can pick up a sensual and erotic body rub with a professional prostitute. The ladies must charge a minimum fee and this is usually around $100 making it a fairly pricey way to get a massage with a happy ending. However, you can often negotiate much more custom ways to get satisfaction with your body rub. The ranch is open 24/7.

West Wendover

A small city in the far east of Nevada, bordering Utah, West Wendover has a population of just 5000 people. Situated in Elko County which has several brothels in cities like Elko and Wells, West Wendover has a traditional Thai foot spa salon that also offers sensual body rubs.


Home to the Pussycat Saloon and Brothel, you can get an erotic massage at this licensed bordello. Prices are negotiated with the ladies themselves but with the room fee they are generally much higher than a standard massage parlor with a minimum of $100 being standard.

Although you can often get more than just a massage, the body rubs aren’t usually the best you can get but do come with a guaranteed happy ending.

You can find the Pussycat Saloon and Brothel at 139 Baud St, Winnemucca, NV 89445 and it is open 24/7.

Please note that all prices are correct at the time of our review (May 2018) but care should be taken when making a booking to confirm current rates of services.
