Dennis Hof, owner of Moonlite Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada, said in an interview entitled "Live from the Moonlight Bunny Ranch" posted on Court TV's website (accessed Feb. 7, 2007) that:

“16 years of mandatory testing, over 100,000 tests — there has never been one case of HIV in a Nevada brothel. The ladies are checked weekly for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and monthly for HIV… Nevada only contributes one half of one percent of all the sexually transmitted diseases in America, partially attributed to the success of the brothel…

There’s prostitution everywhere, the choices are you’re either going to legalize it, regulate it, tax it, and make sure there’s proper health checks, or you’re going to turn your head and pimps are gonna take 14 year-old girls and put them on the streets or in massage parlors with no background or health checks.”
