If you're looking for titallation or erotica - move along. You're not going to get it in this book. Yes, there are a few explicit sex scenes, but they're told in such a clinical matter that they're anything but arousing.

Albert, a Harvard medical student, was granted access to the women of the Nevada's (legal) brothels to conduct research on condom use and ended up living on site at the infamous Mustang Ranch. Albert began her research on condom use but her time at Mustang lead to this book and an anthropological/sociological assessment of these women's lives. During her stay at Mustang, the women slowly begin to open up to Albert and in this book she paints a portrait that dispells many of the stereotypes society has of prostitutes.

All in all, I found this an interesting read and came to regard the women of Mustang as just another group of those trying to make a living as best they could. Whatever side of the fence you are on in regards to the legalisation of prostitution, this book will challenge any preconcieved notions about the woman who choose this life.

This is a very interesting book about legalized prostitution in Nevada. It puts a very human face on a profession that is often dehumanized. It really makes one thing about the absurdity of making the "world's oldest profession" illegal in the first place.

I have to say that I was completely fascinated by this peek behind the scenes at a legal brothel.

Some of the stuff was surprising and some was depressing. It is not full of pornography. If you are looking for sex, you are going to have to look someplace else.

It's a pretty good mix betweeen her scholarly opinion and her personal feelings.

I highly recommend.

This book is more sociology than erotica - an insider's perspective on one of the most curious and taboo jobs in this country. Very interesting, and a quick read. This book will challenge anyone's preconceived notions about prostitution and brothel life.

If you are looking for a porn or erotic book, this isn't it. This is a sociological study on the legal prostitutes
at Mustang Ranch. It is very interesting, especially for those interesting in sociology. I highly recommend this book!

I didn't even know we still had brothels in this country. As long as there are men we will need brothels. I was glad to know at what leghth they go to keep themselves healthy. They should get more money and not be looked at so ugly.
