Nevada Brothel Releases Updated Erotic Menu to Reflect Modern Sex Buyer Trends

ILS-Halloween Apr2016_3

Las Vegas-area adult vacation resort and legal brothel Sheri’s Ranch has released an updated version of its sex menu. The menu reflects the desires of today’s brothel clientele, which increasingly consists of women and couples seeking sex tourism.

Dena, the madam of Sheri’s Ranch, says that the bordello recently added “sex vacation” packages to its menu in an attempt to satisfy increasing demand from men and couples seeking extended stays at the brothel’s on-site hotel.


“As Nevada’s only full-service sex resort, it became important that our menu showcases our unique offerings as a sex vacation destination. It’s common for men and couples to visit us for several days or weeks at a time to enjoy the popular sex getaway retreat that Sheri’s has become.”

The madam says that the new menu also deliberately includes sexual services tailored to women, since they are an ever-increasing demographic of brothel-goers.

“In 2014, women and male/female or female/female couples participated in 15% of the sex parties at Sheri’s Ranch, more than a 10% increase from 2007. Our current menu overtly mentions lesbian sex as an offering, since women are increasingly interested in paying for sex at Sheri’s and getting it on with our ladies.”

Other changes to the menu involve the inclusion of Sheri’s House Specialties, which have evolved over the years as the brothel added new suites and specialty rooms.

“We have always been the go-to brothel for the most intimate and immersive Girlfriend Experience, but our menu now reflects our newer offerings like nuru full-body massage and sexual fantasy fulfillment in our role-play bungalows,” Dena says.

The new menu also includes previously omitted offerings like Roman-style orgies and the “Porn Star Experience.” Download the menu here.

Sheri’s Ranch is legal brothel, resort and spa located in Pahrump, Nevada, sixty miles west of Las Vegas. The Ranch was purchased by former Chicago homicide detective Chuck Lee in 2001 and was recently remodeled into a fantasyland of suites and bungalows with themes such as Lustful Locker Room, Naughty Classroom and Geisha Girl Bedroom, based on customers’ most popular requests.  Lee has taken great care in maintaining a resort playground with the clients’ safety and privacy in mind.
