My understanding is that Clark County is one of the few jurisdictions in the country in which you can legally pay a woman to dance nude in a private setting. If my understanding is correct, then the notion that prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas is somewhat irrelevant.



There is an unofficial don't ask don't tell policy about it. The womens' jail is full of soliciting (telling) cases.

On the other hand, what large city in the U.S. doesn't have illegal prostitution? Not many, I'm sure. Perhaps none.

You don't have to search long in Vegas -- perhaps one difference though between this and other places.
The Hall of Unverified Claims is a vast place with many shelves.

Alright then, as my character was called into question yesterday,

98: There are around 50 Wedding Chapels up, down and around the strip (including those in the Casinos.) Most of the standalone properties lie between the north end of the Strip and downtown, in the so-called "Naked City" area. If you see the tattoo parlours you are heading the right way. These chapels can cater to all kinds of ceremony, from traditional to Elvis, to Klingon or for those in a hurry, Drive Thru.

To add to that one, the reason there is a concentration of wedding chapels downtown is that is you have to go to city hall to get a marriage license. Unlike most other states, marriage licenses are given on demand -- no waiting and no blood test. So if you're in a hurry to get married, which is usually the case with Vegas weddings, there is no shortage of wedding chapels within walking distance of city hall.

As most of you probably can guess, I'm a DJ. I primarily do weddings. But I'm also a Reverend. I got ordained the same way Joey on Friends got ordained. Click! and I'm ordained.

If you've been paying attention to my posts, you know I was in Vegas this past September, and am coming again in September. Both for a convention. The Wedding Merchants Business Academy. All types of wedding professionals meet to discuss how to do a better job at weddings, as well as how to connect and sell to modern brides.


One evening last year, a lot of us took a tour of three wedding chapels. One stop was at, according to them, the only chapel within eyesight of City Hall. It was also, according to them, the only chapel with an elevator. I wanted to ask if that meant they were the only chapel with two floors.

On the bus to these three chapels, we passed a lot of other chapels. Most looked like condemned buildings. The three we visited were nice.


The highlight was the second stop, at the Elvis Chapel. They took two people out of the group, then we had a mock wedding ceremony where these two got married. It was a very cool wedding.

The back of the chapel opened wide, and a vintage pink Cadilac convertable came into the room. Elvis was driving, and the 'bride and groom' were riding high on the rear seat. They got out, walked tot he alter, then Elvis performed the ceremony, including singing several songs. The whole thing lasted about 20 minutes, but it was a real fun ceremony.


This photo is from their website, not our group, but it gives you the idea:

There's additional seating on the right side. Total capacity about 50, or about 70 if they don't leave room for the car.


The next day, I saw 'Elvis' at the convention. I already knew something about the Vegas wedding business, so I had to ask him a question.

NJ, where I live, as well as neighboring NY, has liberal rules regarding marriage. An internet reverend such as myself can legally marry people. Neighboring PA has very strict rules. A minister must 'minister' to a congregation on a regular basis at a real church, etc.

When I became a reverend, I was amazed to learn that the home of the Drive-Thru wedding, has strict rules similar to PA regarding the officiant.

So I asked 'Elvis' about it. He's not a minister. He's not even an interent reverend. He simply entertains. A local reverend is on hand. In a one minute private meeting with the couple, asks them if they really want to get married, then signs the license.

It's not unlike yesterday's thread where it boiled down to, there are many ways around the law...

LOL, my dad married his 3rd wife in Vegas, on a spur of the moment. It was his only marriage that didn't last (my mom and his second wife both passed away).

If nothing else, this thread should establish a record for lenght.

So is it legal to hire a hooker to strip for a bachelor party before a wedding in Vegas? ;)

I doubt it. The "Hoax that is the 1.41%" thread is still going strong.

I would guess not, but if alady with a bad reputation came up to your hotel room, undressed, danced a little, and then maybe picked up some money that did not belong (by their own admission) to everyone else, and didnt tell anyone, I dont think anyone would be prosecuted. I could be wrong.

I think I counted the number of escort service pages in the LV white pages last time I was there and there was something like over 600 pages. Wow. How would one decide?

On another note, we were surprised last weekend by the seeming lack of people handing out the cards on the strip of near nude women asking for escort services. Was there an effort to clean this up in the past year. This would make the strip far more kid-friendly, not that I would ever bring my children to Vegas.

97: For people who want to see some of the amazing natural scenery of the Valley of Fire State Park, but cant make the trip themselves, you can check it out in films such as Heldorado, Iron Eagle , Star Trek: Generations or doubling for the planet Mars in Total Recall

Oh and for those following the slight "Adult" subtext to previous posts, Lake Mead is the setting for Pammy and Tommy's Stolen Honeymoon.

Find your own link to that.
