Gender bias in the sex industry?

OK, what is next? I am referring to this article I found on MSN. Betting on the Studs. In a nutshell, Heidi Fleiss, the notorious madam who served time for, well, madaming wants to open a male-staffed brothel in Nevada. You know, the state where prostitution is legal. OK. So, I clicked on the link, because just like everyone else, sex sells and I was interested in any link that says, "Inside Heidi Fleiss' all-male bordello." That's interesting, I thought. Truth be told, it never occurred to me there weren't male bordellos already open in Nevada, the state of paid love. I know there are male prostitutes that cater to both men and women in existence. I just ASSUMED (there I go again) that Nevada was an equal-opportunity state. Not the case. Not at all. Not by a long shot. I got pretty offended when I started reading this article. Basically offended on the level that people can still be so narrow minded, even when we are basically dealing in the gutter already. Personally, this entire thing affects me not at all. I still think of escorts as being, well, the domain of well-to-do people who are willing to spend a lot of money for something I can get from my husband. For free, well basically free anyway. But I digress. So first off, we have a Mr. George Flint, lobbyist for the Nevada Brothel Association saying (In a nutshell), that the Madam Fleiss' actions are going to get the entire sex-selling industry in Nevada outlawed, basically because no-ones wants to think of a woman paying for sex. I guess. And also that a prostitute is defined as "she" and they have to get annual gyn checkup, so the state statute covering the sex industry will need rewriting, and the conservative people of Nevada won't stand for it, they will rebel, and outlaw that nasty business once and for all. WHATEVER. Then the article had a quote from some random woman, who says (and I quote) "What self-respecting woman would drive that far for sex when it's so easy to find here in Vegas?" Note that the woman was in-line for an all-male stripper dance revue. So I guess a self respecting woman will pay to see Mr. Winky on stage, but she doesn't want to pay for one-on-one with Mr. Winky. Oh yeah, and also a self-respecting woman would rather have one-night stand sex with Mr. Random drunk guy she meets at the local bar than with, what I assume is an attractive, clean, safe guy who will push her buttons. Again, I am going out on a HUGE limb here. Then the article goes on to bash the gay community. Madam Fleiss apparently has her hands full just getting the ladies to see her clientele, and the gay men want in on the action. Understandably. So, I know that strip clubs chase away lesbians, but do brothels allow women customers? I have no idea, but for the sake of this article, I hope that a woman can walk into a brothel in the paid-love state of Nevada and get some girl-on-girl action without too much guff. Unfortunately, I fear it is not so. But they are going to black-ball (he he he) Madam Fleiss for only having women clientele in her male bordello. Whatever. I have already talked about a subject that doesn't concern me enough, already. Bring on the comments! Note: I do no advocate prostitution in any form. I am simply supplying my ideas.
