Heidi Fleiss is planning the all-male brothel on 60 acres in Nevada, where prostitution is often legal, with more than two dozen brothels of the conventional sort. Lawyers for Fleiss, the ex-Hollywood madam who served time in prison in the late s on federal charges related to a high-end call-girl business, plan to apply for a license this month.
Earlier today, when we were at the opening of Fleiss's new Laundromat—called Dirty Laundry—in Pahrump, and there were camera crews from CNN, MSNBC, and Fox filming her, she looked much more the way you expect a celebrity of her ilk to look: instantly recognizable, surgically enhanced, impossibly thin, dressed in stilettos and tight, stretchy clothing.

Heidi Fleiss picks me up in her silver Porsche Carrera and starts racing down a highway in the middle of the Nevada desert. She switches on the CD player and turns up the volume on Tony Robbins, motivational speaker to the stars, whose catchphrase is 'Unleash the power within'. Fleiss takes his message to heart: I look at the speedometer - we are moving at close to miles an hour.
When it comes to society's attitudes toward sexual expression, the s were a formative time in American culture. David Friend's fantastic and wonderfully exhaustive new book, The Naughty Ninetiestakes a deep, deep dive into everything sex when it comes to 90s American culture—from Baywatch and Bill Clinton to Sex and the City and the proliferation of digital smut.
