Contrary to popular belief, prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas, Nevada. By state law, any prositution outside of a brothel is illegal, and a brothel must possess a state-issued license to operate legally. Every county is allowed a "local option" on whether to allow operations of brothels. However, the law immediately prohibits any county having a population over 400,000 from issuing brothel licenses, which excludes Clark (encompassing Vegas) and Washoe (encompassing Reno) counties. The end result of this is that in Nevada's largest cities, prostitution is illegal by default. From Vegas, one has to drive sixty miles north to Pahrump to find the nearest legal brothel. Of course, this doesn't prevent illegal prostitution from being rampant (much as it is in most other large cities).
