Intrepid TV host Louis Theroux reveals the inside story of day-to-day life in one of America’s largest legal brothels. Over six weeks of a summer, Louis moved in with Lance and Susan, the brothel owners, and the working girls at the newly opened Wild Horse Resort and Spa, Reno, in the state of Nevada.

As he quickly becomes entwined in the lives of the prostitutes, Louis soon realises that it’s not only the men who are paying a price for sex.

The early enthusiasm of 19-year-old new girl Emily – who insists she’s just in it for the sex – rapidly dwindles as the days go by. Belle, who is 21 but looks 12, has become a favourite amongst the paedophiles that visit the house, and Haley, perhaps the brightest and the most complex of the working girls, struggles with alcoholism as she contemplates a life outside prostitution.

But for owners Lance and Susan, the four million dollar bordello is the realisation of a dream. The two met when Susan worked as a prostitute and Lance became one of her regular clients. They hope they’ve created a house of love, providing unsurpassed luxury and service, but also a place that offers the girls an opportunity to develop a life beyond a career in prostitution.

In Louis’s typical style, the documentary is non-judgemental, amusing and all the more revealing for its gentle prodding. What is uncovered raises questions and challenges preconceptions about the world’s oldest profession.

    seen what? —we didn’t already know?

    FACT IS Louis’s state BBC ‘demoralization ops’ in the service of the world
    EUGENICS agenda ( destruction of genuine culture, MASSIVE de-population
    –ie genocide) are getting a little transparent.

      your point is only half valid. while i get what your saying, not everyone has seen the things you have. and without people like louis theroux you wouldn’t have seen much of the things you have. im not having a go, yours was just a thought provoking comment.

    A very even handed and enjoyable documentary. Unfortunately they are not allowed to show the second part on youtube because it features nudity. I was able to watch it in it’s entirety on putlocker. Yes the second part does make a major difference in the film.

    To be fair i did not watch this documentary, i only read the description, above.

    But i am sitting here wondering how in the world did we ever survive with out Mr.Theroux?  What an enlightening subject matter! Who knew there were whore houses in Nevada of all places? The owners get rich, really?  Who knew there are  women out there ready to sell their bodies to any man willing to pay for them?  What a necessary documentary! 

    6 weeks? Usually he stays a few days, i guess it was such an important piece of journalism that he needed the extra days.

    Such a deserving subject matter! Once again thank your Mr.Theroux, what would we do with out you?

    What happened to Hailey??? I hope she found what she needed. I’m very VERY curious what happened to her.

  • kevin

    I am “Hailey’s” best friend. She is fine, a well adjusted sweetheart and a great friend. She owns a business. That’s really all I am going to say.
