It's called Sin City for a reason. You can't walk down the Las Vegas strip without stepping on a slew of flyers promoting various kinds of smut. Amidst the filth are costumed panhandlers who endure the heat and occasional abuse from tourists to "work" long hours to bring home meager-to-respectable amounts of money; it's a semi-honest contrast to the smut (if there is one at all).
Then, of course, there are the strip clubs. You throw a rock in Vegas and you're bound to hit a strip club door. When L.A. feels too clean (imagine that?), thrill seekers make that road trip to Vegas for weekends filled with unspeakable debauchery, and that covers everything from the finest of strip clubs to the other industry quietly keeping Vegas in business: prostitution. The oldest hustle is legal in some of Nevada's counties (shoutout to Dennis Hof and the Moonlite Bunny Ranch), but not Clark County, where Las Vegas is located. Still, prostitution is practiced in Las Vegas, because what fun would life be if people actually followed the law? Unfortunately, not everyone that visits Vegas is aware of this, thus leading to embarrassing arrests. On a disturbing note, a lot of girls working the streets of Las Vegas are literally girls—there's a market for teenage prostitutes, which is just vile. Granted Vegas isn't Sodom and Gomorrah, but it's earned it's nickname. Regardless, people love it.
Oh, and then there's Erin Brockovich. For all of the good she's done, she was busted for drunk boating in Lake Mead near Vegas last month. We all fuck up from time to time, right?
