A brothel about 150 miles northwest of Las Vegas has gotten final approval for plans to hire Nevada's first legal male prostitutes.
The Nye County Licensing and Liquor Board on Tuesday approved a compliance agreement that will allow the Shady Lady Ranch brothel to make the hires as long as the men wear condoms and undergo weekly health tests.
Two licensing board members voted against the compliance agreement, expressing worries that not all health concerns have been addressed.
Board member and Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo says he's worried that female customers can't and won't be subjected to the same types of pre-sex examinations undergone by men in most of Nevada's legal brothels.
