Though Las Vegas has a reputation for being the city of Sin, many visitors are surprised by the fact that prostitution is actually illegal there. That’s right, Clark County doesn’t tolerate Vegas brothels. Fortunately, the surrounding areas take a more relaxed view of adult entertainment and you can find plenty of bordellos within an hour’s drive.
One of the most famous is the Love Ranch, the infamous brothel in the Nevada desert, also known as Love Ranch Vegas or Love Ranch South.
In this guide, we take a look at how this brothel has built its reputation over fifty years to become one of the hottest spots in Nevada.
THE LOVE RANCH: VEGAS BROTHEL
The Love Ranch South is one of several brothels owned by Denis Hof, star of the HBO series ‘Cathouse’, including its sister venue, Love Ranch North (east of Carson City, nr Reno) and the infamous Moonlite Bunny Ranch.
As part of the ‘Bunny Ranch’ brand, the Love Ranch benefits from the multi-site operations of its owner. The girls from over seven brothels rotate around the venues and each is well set up with solid management and all the essentials. Each of the brothels runs its own website but the brand features a central forum where news and information across the houses is shared.
Formerly known as ‘The Cherry Patch’ the house has been operating since the 1960’s and has built a reputation for being a relaxed and informal brothel, close to Vegas that offers a high-end service with beautiful lovers.
WHAT TO EXPECT INSIDE THE VENUE
Set in the Nevada desert with no neighbouring properties the Love Ranch is basically a series of interconnecting static double trailers. When you arrive, you can choose to go straight to a more private waiting area and have a full line-up of the available women or you can head straight to the parlour or to the bar to relax before making a selection.
Every girl has their own individual rates and services so if you have a budget or something specific in mind then it’s worth talking to the cashier before you get settled in as they are more likely to be able to match you with the right lady.
The bar is full service so you can grab a cocktail whilst you peruse the choices of ladies available (drinks prices are very reasonable compared to Vegas).
The rooms are well appointed and include all modern facilities. There are also hot tubs and jacuzzis available. Some of the suites have extra toys such as a sex swing, sex chair or sauna but you can expect to pay more for the use of these rooms.
There is a massage room on site with many of the girls holding licenses for massage therapy; however you can expect to get more for your money than a downtown Vegas parlour.
The Love Ranch cathouse can also accommodate guests who want to spend a longer stay to sample their ladies and VIP suites can be booked for one or more nights. Facilities nearby are good and include a restaurant (also owned by Denis Hof) which can deliver to the ranch. If you are planning on staying a while then you will be pleased to know that there is WiFi as well as a public computer room so you can take care of business while taking care of business.
For anyone who wants to take a piece of the Love Ranch away with them, they sell merchandise relating to the ‘Cathouse’ series as well as novelty items and sex toys.
The whole place has a very relaxed feel to it and, as well as the women who are working, there are clients who are on an extended sex-stay-cations making the place home. Its not unusual for people to be sitting around during the day playing board games or for tourists to drop in for some merchandise – and incongruous ones at that rate, ladies in their sixties and seventies posing for pictures.
The Love Ranch is one of those brothels where you can get mind-blowing sex with a stunning woman yet be able to spend a few hours in the bar with her (and others) having a good time.

THE LADIES AT THE LOVE RANCH
Because the Love Ranch operates as part of the Hof empire, the choice of girls varies every night as they each rotate around the different brothels. There are around 500 girls employed across the several houses with at least 20 (sometimes 30) being on roster at each house on a given night. Whilst that means that your favorite lady might not always be where you expect her to be, you will at least know that you have plenty of alternative women to select from.
The range is very good and include 2015 Lover of the Year, Lena Haze a petite 24-year-old lover with a model figure as well as older ladies and BBWs. There are also a handful of women here who work in the porn industry so don’t be taken aback if you get a sense of déjà vu.
The girls accommodate most services including fetish, fantasy and BDSM as well as PSE and GFE plus couples.
The website has details of a lot of the girls who regularly work the Love Ranch available to view including photos, bios and personal profiles including email address.
The Love Ranch does publish a roster in advance so you can take your pick from who is available in advance by checking the forum. If you do have someone specific in mind you will need to call ahead to make an appointment or you could email them in advance. However, a word of warning on using the girl’s emails. Unless you are a regular client it is unlikely that you will get a swift response; as the house says “the lovers are better at fulfilling fantasies than returning emails”.
The ladies at the Love Ranch are used to accommodating group bookings and parties so if you have something in mind then speak to the cashier who can make the arrangements for you. Threesomes, foursomes and orgies are all part of the service as long as you can meet the budget. They have become known for their Viagra parties which are well worth enquiring over; however, the Love Ranch do not supply the Viagra.
OPENING TIMES AT THE LOVE RANCH
The Love Ranch understands its clients well and knows that there’s never a downtime in the business. Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the Love Ranch never closes…not even for Christmas Day.
Plenty of people use the Love Ranch as a 24/7 drinking hole and so there are usually a few people at the bar whenever you visit.
Prices at the Love Ranch aren’t published and each lady has their own rate as well as being open to negotiation including discounts for servicemen.
The costs involved depend on the amount of time you plan to stay, how many girls you are entertaining with and what extras you require. Each girl is technically an independent contractor so publishing rates would contravene interstate commerce laws.
However, the girls are all trying to make a living and you can expect to pay $500 for an hour of straight sex. There are reports of some girls trying to charge up to $1500 or even $3000 for an hour but these are generally for high-end and in-demand girls who provide kinky services. That said, you may need to be on your A-game to negotiate if you are on a budget.
The house accepts Visa and Mastercard as well as debit cards and cash. There is an ATM on site.
