George Flint, Senior Lobbyist for the Nevada Brothel Owners Association, wrote on its website (accessed Feb. 22, 2007) that:

“I’m a big fan and supporter of the brothels based largely on the fact that legal and regulated works so much better than the obvious alternative. Making prostitution illegal does not make it go away. Our only choice as relating to prostitution is legal and successfully controlled or sadly, what happens without the benefit of what we do have in ten counties of rural Nevada: uncontrolled sex for sale activity with all the crime, drugs, and exploitation that is rampant in the illegal environment.”
