Porn Industry Might find New Home in Las Vegas

Porn Industry in Las Vegas

Among the many concerns that are plaguing Nevada, the porn industry appears to be one of the biggest and most polarizing upon its horizon. Many other states who have been home to the industry have done their best to pass legislation to make it hard for filmmakers to shoot porn in their states. Famous examples include the “Mandatory Condom Law” in all adult films. 

Las Vegas though has always been known for its relaxed view on what goes and what does not. Prostitution in all technicality is illegal. That does not, however, stop the overflow of people handing out business cards for so-called “escort services” up and down the main strip. Vegas has itself steeply positioned in the industry as is. Famous organizations within the industry like Brazzers already own studios in Las Vegas.

Many experts have pointed out that it is completely legal to film porn in the state. Many have stepped up to challenge this but none are able to debase it. The state simply treats it like a strip club, which Las Vegas has an abundance of, and lets it be. As long as the industry follows regular state laws and does not abuse any of them, then the legality never appears to be in question.

Furthermore, Nevada is a state that is rather lenient with its corporate tax and even offers a smaller cost of living. Perhaps most amusingly the state has also tried to offer incentives to have more filmmakers making films in the state of Nevada. These incentives have acted to also bring the adult industry in with it. In addition, Vegas has always been very kind and generous to the adult award shows. Vegas, though previously noted as illegal, has a rather large pool of prostitutes that work there. Not to mention the myriad of strip clubs. The easy access to stars makes Vegas seem all the more like home. It is easy to see why the adult film industry might receive a good deal of sympathy from Las Vegas.

Voting trends and the demeanor among public officials tends to reveal that the libertarian views are exceptionally common in Vegas. Libertarian views often are more “Live and let live.” and thus, it seems that the ideological grounds in Vegas are already laid out. The adult film industry simply needs to plant the seeds and let it grow. It has plenty of resources, an abundance of actresses it already fly’s out there, and plenty of young and eager talent to use. Indeed, Las Vegas already looks very much like the porn industries home.
