The Moonlite BunnyRanch, which was profiled in HBO’s Cathouse, opened in 1955. Sixty years later, it’s one of only 24 legal brothels in the United States, all of which are located in Nevada.

There are a lot of misunderstandings about what it’s like to be a sex worker, so one of Moonlite’s employees, Sarah Greenmore, held a Reddit AMA last night to answer questions about condoms, kinks, and staying interested in making whoopee with, potentially, multiple people a day. Greenmore also recommends reading up on Amnesty International’s endorsement of the decriminalization of the sex trade.

Why/how did you choose this career path?

I worked in the beauty/spa industry before this, and it wasn’t paying what I needed to support my lifestyle. I have done sex work on the side for many years (webcamming, porn, panty selling) to suppliment my income. Being innately sexual and being myself/my sexual persona is far more gratifying than feeling like someone’s servant at a day spa.

I decided I would rather do the part time job I enjoy as a full time job instead. I decided to work at the brothels in Nevada as it is something unique, I like the community aspect of the brothel and although I feel it is over regulated, I like the safety as well.

Do many virgins who are trying to have sex for the first time go to brothels or is that a myth?

Yes, we get many virgins :)

What’s the fastest ones finished?

Personal life: 20 seconds, tops, in my “ultra slutty, what’s an STD? lol” phase I gave a guy a BJ at a glory hole. Professional: Minute and a half?

What’s your yearly take home? Best year? Worst year? How much time off do you take each year?

I used to work a month on and a month off and go back home to Portland. I’m now living in Nevada so I’m working 5-7 days a week.

I see that this is the highest rated question, so I’ll give you guys ONE juicy detail. I worked 13 days in July and made 9,700 takehome before taxes.
