About

A sudden thunderstorm broke the midday desert heat as the big truck turned off Interstate 15 and headed toward the Pure Pleasure adult bookstore. Waiting and watching were Rebecca Hartley and a handful of others, just as they have done day and night for nearly two years. On this summer day, they were the front-line soldiers in a battle pitting the mostly Mormon residents of nearby Southern Utah against a pornography shop operator in this booming Nevada casino stop. We've got a truck," Ms. Hartley yelled.

Description

Las vegas adult stores cater to female clientele

Far up South Las Vegas Boulevard, past the glitzy resorts and mega-casinos of the city's strip, you will find an unassuming brick building with a boarded-up fire door at the front. On the surface, it looks like any of the many pawn shops and quickie wedding ts nearby. But before it closed last month, Showgirl Video was the last business of its kind in Vegas. s outside boasted of its unique selling point: private cubicles screening adult channels and - most unusually - a live peep show.

But now, the s showing scantily clad women have been removed and the venue will soon be gone for good - it is set to be demolished and replaced by a marijuana dispensary. Former employees told the BBC it was a safe space, where they felt they were in control. Some in the city say the loss represents a natural progression for the place known as Sin City as it pivots toward a new adult market.

But to others, the closure of Showgirl represents a city sanitising itself from its more salacious past. Treasure Brown, a former performer at Showgirl, is torn about the peep show closing. I couldn't believe I had made that much money and decided this was what I would do to put myself through school.

Unlike many who live in Vegas, Treasure was born there. While working at Showgirl, she met Pistol, as is he is more widely known, and he became her partner. The couple have an eight-year-old son together. But on a more cognitive level - it's time. For a long time, before VHS and DVDs became widely available, businesses like Showgirl were the sole refuge of those seeking video pornography. Peep shows date back centuries but pornographic ones and adult theatres, like the porn industry itself, only started taking off by the s.

A growing sense of sexual liberation, combined with advancing technology, created an explosion in adult entertainment. By the end of the decade, it was estimated that there were about dedicated porn theatres dotted around the US. Even drive-in showings, known as the Durand Dirties, sprung up to quench public demand. That same year, a report into the dangers of pornography, commissioned by President Ronald Reagan, was released. The report said peep shows and other "back room" ventures were earning up to double what the venues were making at the front of house, often without being declared or taxed.

One Californian tasked with touring the adult venues described the peep shows she witnessed as both "very unsettling" and having a "rest-room ambiance".

Over the years some local officials - including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani - committed to cleansing their streets of such businesses. In some places, theatres and peep shows were legally mandated to remove private booth doors or forced to screen equal amounts of adult and non-adult material. This regulation, combined with rising real estate prices and the increased availability of porn elsewhere, led to the shuttering of venues nationwide.

Peep shows with live performers, like Showgirl, became even rarer. Although former performers like Treasure remember their experience working in the s fondly, other people have not been so complimentary about the sunset years of the peep show industry.

One writer for the now-defunct NSFW Corp website, who visited Showgirl indescribed her experience in the booth as "the worst consensual moment I've ever had with a naked person". With porn now easily accessible online within seconds, it is perhaps a surprise that Showgirl and other venues like it were able to survive as long as they did.

Dr Barbara Brents, a sociology professor at the University of Nevada, has been researching the state's sex industry for 25 years.

It functions just like a peep show, and you can do it in the privacy of your own home. Dr Brents says Showgirl and its owners played a pivotal role in the fight for free speech and sexual expression in Las Vegas. She has witnessed a decline of similar businesses in the area, aimed at working-class consumers, as financial disparity grows. Aside from its reputation as the last live peep show in Vegas, Showgirl was unusual because of its location. In the early s authorities moved to push sexualised businesses away from the main strip but Showgirl, protected under old regulation, remained on the main boulevard.

Despite the tourism campaign message "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas", which gave the impression that boundless sex and hedonism were available to visitors, there is a lot of smoke and mirrors to the city's relationship with sex.

Officials, aiming to broaden the destination's appeal, have implemented a range of restrictions on sexualised entertainment over the past few decades. Dayvid Figler has been at the frontline of this battle for almost 30 years. Porn shops in las vegas he first started out as a lawyer, he worked almost exclusively on cases involving local pornographers, strippers and others in the adult entertainment and sex trade.

His anecdotes, including fighting for the right to strippers to offer lap dances, are colourful to say the least. The image Las Vegas likes to portray can confuse visitors, says Dr Brents. Businesses like strip clubs are even required to brandish bright yellow s near their entrance to clarify this to visitors.

Confusion arises because Nevada, where Vegas is situated, is the only state in the US to have legal brothels.

They have been present since the days of the Gold Rush, but as of were allowed to be d only in counties with low populations. Today the nearest brothels to Vegas are in Pahrump, a mile drive away. The legal brothels still dotted around Nevada's rural areas remain divisive. Critics say the authorities fail to regulate the illegal sex trade, which is thought to dwarf the state's legal market.

A federal lawsuit filed this year on behalf of a sex trafficking victim seeks to end the legal brothel system completely.

The 21 remaining brothels have already survived several calls for a state-wide ban. Last year, efforts to close them in two counties failed and Dennis Hof, a well-known brothel owner and activist, was even voted into the local legislature - despite passing away during his campaign.

Victoria Hartmann, a former dancer at Showgirl who is now director of the city's Erotic Heritage Museum, says fears around sex trafficking in the industry risk obscuring the stories of those who have chosen to enter sex work voluntarily, including strippers. She believes local governments should work to de-stigmatise sex work and believes the more sex disappears from the surface of Las Vegas, the more it will thrive within local counter-culture.

Dr Brents says calls for the criminalisation of prostitution historically came from the city's gaming industry who, as the city distanced itself from the mob, wanted to clean up their public image and appear legitimate - particularly to the federal government. Mr Figler says this insecurity persists within the gaming industry today. This commercialisation of sex is still visible when you walk around Vegas today. It's hard to miss mobile billboards driving down the resort ro advertising "hot girls direct to you" and people handing out suggestive business cards for the ostensibly legal escort or outcall dancing services.

You will also likely see topless men or showgirls, nude except for some body paint or strategically placed crystal underwear, trying to sell tickets to their racy revue shows along Las Vegas Boulevard. But even these productions have caused complaints over the years.

Billboards advertising the burlesque show Crazy Girls, displaying bare bottoms, also faced calls to be banned. In a city happy to test the limits of acceptability, Showgirl always teetered on the edge. He knew the business and its owners well, having represented and written about them in the past. The fact that Showgirl is being replaced by a marijuana dispensary is highly symbolic.

Since Nevada legalised its recreational use inoutlets selling the drug have sprung up across the Las Vegas area - including Planet 13, a superstore which bills itself as the largest dispensary and entertainment complex in the world.

Some lawmakers and business owners in the city have made no secret of their ambitions to tap into weed tourism and become a "new Amsterdam". For now, though, tourists hoping to indulge are in legal limbo. Public consumption is still against the law and regulated lounges have not yet been given the green light. But could marijuana ever completely replace sex-based adult entertainment as the city's vice of choice?

Treasure Brown doesn't think so. You can see the strip from the couple's house and they still own another downtown strip t that continues to do well.

Even though she no longer works in the industry herself, Treasure says she can't imagine leaving the weird and wonderful world of Vegas behind. It's tacky. It's kitsch but I love it. All pictures copyright.
