Prostitution and Trafficking in Nevada: Making the Connections

Prostitution and Trafficking in Nevada: Making the Connections

Melissa Farley
2007

A 2-year research study of Nevada legal and illegal prostitution and sex trafficking reveals human rights violations against women in the Nevada legal brothels. This book explains how the multibillion-dollar illegal sex industry in Las Vegas works. Making connections between legal and illegal prostitution, prostitution and sex trafficking, advertising for prostitution, political corruption, pornography, and organized crime, Farley notes that at the root of it all are the men who insist on the right to rent human beings in prostitution: the johns. Sex trafficking happens because johns create the demand for it.

Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress

Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress

Melissa Farley (editor) 2003

With 32 contributors, this book offers an analysis of prostitution and trafficking as organized interpersonal violence. Even in public health and criminal justice, prostitution is often misunderstood as “sex work.” The book includes clinical examples, analysis, and original research that counteract common myths about the harmlessness of prostitution to those in it. Prostitution, Trafficking, and Traumatic Stress documents the violence that runs like a constant thread through all types of prostitution including escort, brothel, trafficking, strip club, and street prostitution. International in scope, the book’s contributors include clinical experts in traumatic stress, attorneys and advocates who work with trafficked women and children and prostituted women themselves.
