    I have always seen the driving billboard and the flappers on the sidewalks handing out the cards. I get that since they are advertising an "escort service" it's totally legal. But now that I've checked out their website, it is obvious they are not hiding the fact that they are prostitutes.

    Even without going to the site, you'd have to think that anytime a guy sees those ads he's thinking he's ordering a hooker, and if she showed up and expected him to pay her to play Skip-Bo in his hotel room I doubt this business would still be around.

    So my question is how do they get away with it being not only legal, but such an open business?
    Has there ever been a sting? Or anything like that?
    Or do the officials kinda just sweep it under the rug and not worry about it?

    By the way, I'm not asking because I'm offended or anything stupid like that. I'm fine with people doing whatever they want and if I wasn't married I'd probably give them a call....except for the fact that I think I'd be afraid that since there is no price list I could see me spending way more money than I am budgeting because some of the girls on the site are HOT as hell and I could see them convincing me to spend way more money than I should when I got them into the room.
    It's not that I want to do away with it, I'm just curious.

    Yes they do run stings

    Yes they do run stings to try and control it. My niece (Metro Cop) has played both sides. The prostitute to trap the John and a customer to trap the prostitute. If you watch old episodes of COPS you can see her.

    In the customer episode she hired an escort to have a threesome for her husbands birthday present.

    The advertising is legal. That's considered free speech. it's the same reason you can pick up a phone book in any major city and see listings for "erotic massage". The illegal activities occur between the lady (or man) and the customer

    Curiosity killed the cat as they say. You know if you were single and gave them a call it probably would go bad. If I had to do it I would probably go out to the ranch where it is legal.

    Hey Now!!!!

    Last week while at the Wally Gator Bar at the Orleans, I was talking to a local when a "working girl" sat down next to us. She was obviously looking. We chatted with her a bit, and after she left my buddy told me that this was common here. I have been come on to countless times there. Just for the record, I too am happily married. But I would think avoiding phone records would be a good idea...
    By the way, during our 10 day stay, I saw at least 5 girls leaving the elevator downstairs. One of them was holding her shoes, with her hose around her ankles..... mayhaps coitus interruptous????

    This is a good read for how "all that" works or doesn't, as the case may be...


    " First, a lot of people come to Sin City and think that it is anything goes. That is simply not true. First, prostitution is illegal in Clark County and any other county with a population of over 250,000 residents. The closest place with LEGAL prostitution is in Pahrump which is about an hour drive out Blue Diamond Road. The thinking behind it is that LEGAL prostitution is a way for smaller counties to have some type of tax revenue. So, by going to see a legal working girl, you are really helping the local economy.

    Prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas and so is drinking alcohol from an open container on the streets. Solicitation is also illegal in Las Vegas. The point here is that you want to be careful that you don't get arrested in Las Vegas. You're there to have a good time, but you certainly don't want to do something stupid that is going to get you arrested.

    So, the agencies are simply marketing machines. They will try to entice you to call them anyway that you can. How do they do that? First, they have people standing all up and down the strip handing out business cards with beautiful women on them and a phone number. We call this the gauntlet since you can't walk down the street without being accosted by them. If you want to avoid them, just walk close to someone with small children. Otherwise, you can take the cards and promptly discard them on the sidewalk which is what most people do. They also try to get you to call them by advertising on a rolling billboard called "Hot Babes". I dare you to go to Las Vegas and miss the rolling billboard. They drive up and down the strip from the Stratosphere to Mandalay Bay. They seemed to follow me wherever I went. If you check the yellow pages in the phone book, you will see a HUGE number of ads for agencies.

    How can you spot an agency ad? First, the pics will look fake and there is a similar writing style. All the ads that are 702-410-25XX are agency ads, so you can dismiss them right away. The girls that say they are available 24/7 are probably from an agency. They will usually charge $150 or $200 per hour.

    If you decide to use an escort agency, here is what you can expect. First, when you make the call, they will ask you for your name and they probably already have your number. They will ask you what hotel you are staying at and the room number. (See how they use that info below.) You should expect to pay $500 per encounter with an agency. If you are not willing to pay this amount, don't even make the phone call.

    Next, the girl will show up when you want her to. She will NOT look like the girl from the ad that you saw online. If this is the case, show her the pics from the ad and tell her right there that her ad was misleading and let her go on her way. Do NOT even let her into your room. If you do let her in the room, she will tell you that she wants to take care of business right away so that you can start relaxing and having a good time. She will then take the $150 or $200 from you and put it in her pocket or on her person (in her bra or pants). Once you hand her the money, do NOT expect to see it ever again. You have to make a decision if you want to do this or not. You will NOT get that money back. Next, she will call the agency and tell them that she has the money and do her check in with the agency. After she hangs up the phone, she will then ask what would you like to do and then start negotiating for more money. You can expect to pay another $100 for a CBJ or $300-$500 for FS. Now you realize that this is not going to be the simple hourly rate from her. This is known as the upsell. The other caution that you have to play is that she will not talk about sex or services. She wants you to talk about it because then she can say that you solicited HER. If she needs to turn the tables on you, she will.

    If you give her this money, also consider this gone. She may give you a CBJ and it will last at the most 10-15 minutes and she will get dressed and walk out. So, you just paid $300 for a CBJ. If you pay for FS, it will be covered and she will most likely try to get you off as quickly as possible and then leave.

    Now, if you have given her the money and you don't want to go through with it, what can you do? Well, generally you are sunk. If you get upset, she will call her agency and they will instruct her to leave. If you try to stop her from leaving, they will threaten you with false imprisonment. The next step is that she will call the agency and they will say that they want to talk to you on your hotel phone. They will call your room and as soon as you pick up the phone, they will try to distract you and she will get up and say she is going to use the bathroom and she will walk out the door. If she makes it to the elevator, you have just been ROBBED in the worst way. Now you have nothing.

    At this point, you can threaten to take her to hotel security which may help you resolve your matter or they will most likely call Las Vegas Metro. The risk here is now both of you may be taken downtown. Not exactly the fun you were looking for in Las Vegas. You need to be careful that you did not solicit her or prevent her from leaving the room. Be sure you know where the hotel security is before you invite her up. If you do end up in the casinio, you can either let her walk or make a scene so that someone will intervene. Notice that I did not say help you, because the hotels generally frown on this type of behavior and may not help you. Also note that there are LOTS of cameras in the casino (the eyes in the sky) and there are also cameras in the hotel hallways and by the elevators.

    You may start to get very angry and frustrated at this point. Do NOT take your anger out on the girl. Do not hit her or push her around. You do not want to do anything that will make your bad situation worse. If it does get bad between the two of you, let her walk and consider that you just learned an expensive lesson. It will be even MORE expensive if you have to come back to Las Vegas to defend yourself against all sorts of trumped up charges."

    There's more to this, but I think you get the drift... call those numbers at your own peril

    Advertising a "girl to your room" is no more illegal than advertising the sale of a firearm. The legal issue with both transactions is what you do with the product once in your hands, that is what will run you afoul of the law! haha!

    I suspected that the girls advertized on cards were actually NOT prostitutes at all. My suspicion (I now see it was incorrect) was that you'd pay a fee, they'd hint that you get more if you pay more, you agree to pay more, they do a bit of dancing or teasing, and then they leave-- because, what're you gonna do, say a prostitute ripped you off by not having sex, something the girl never explicitly promised, and then get arrested? I figured it was all a scam.

    A friend of mine called a number off a card many years ago. Girl arrived, he thought better, said "no," she left. The next day, some guy approached him on the Strip, told my friend that the night before he'd "fucked with his girl" or "cheated her" out of money or something like that, and acted as though he was intending violence. My friend ran, and the guy vanished into the crowd. I have no idea if it was actually related, but he had believed it was.

    The reason they get away with it is simple. Money. The city or state is getting a cut maybe through taxes or permitting or fees or something along those lines. in turn they will look the other way and let them push the envelope a bit far.

    Even the guys in costumes have to have a permit.

    #1 advertising girls to your room is not illegal in any way shape or form.
    #2 no one, including the cops, care if they commit prostitution when those girls get there.

    I know prostitution is illegal but open containers are illegal also? It's mentioned in the article that smartone posted? Is that true?

    I edited some of that and probably should've take that part out too. It's not an article, but a post from another board and I know the poster knows about that kinda stuff. It's actually caused a bit of a problem on Fremont, cause you can't take a drink and wander from bar to bar up by The Griffin like you can under the canopy.

    I think it's legal to have drinks out on the Strip (which is technically Clark County) and downtown under the canopy area... I do not think it's legal anywhere else.

    smartone is correct. It is illegal within Las Vegas city limits. The canopy section of downtown on Freemont is the only exception.

    The strip is NOT within Las Vegas city limits:

    The Strip is not located within the City of Las Vegas but is in the unincorporated towns of Paradise and Winchester, which are south of the Las Vegas city limits.

    Open containers are fine on the strip...

    Ahh, Paradise. I'll be there tomorrow for a week long trip.

    Back to hookers. They only want one thing and it isn't you, it's your money. They will do whatever they have to to take it without giving anything up.

    Trick rolls are common. I had a customers who got rolled for $6800 a couple years ago at the Orleans. He got picked up at a BJ (no pun intended) at the Palms and they ended up slipping a Xanax into his drink once the two girls got him back to his room. He also lost $40K in test equipment. Metro took a report, that's all. He got fired from his job and I loaned him $100 for gas so he could drive back to Modesto. I did get repaid.

    It is buyer beware but realize there was an article in the LVRJ where they estimated in excess of $20 Million in reported losses annually from trick rolls. Metro figures less than 20% get reported!

    So, does anyone still want to call?

    He obviously had no idea what he was doing. If you're smart about it you can be safe. I've never done it but if I were, I would get another hotel room just for the occasion and leave nothing valuable in it. I wouldn't have anything valuable on me, no wallet, no credit cards, just the amount of cash I'm willing to spend. That way if you do get jacked all you're out is the money you were gonna spend anyways and a case of blue balls.

    Oh and never drink anything from the time you meet her till shes gone.
