Kaythryn first became interested by the idea of working as a sex worker after watching a number reality TV shows about the legal Brothels of Nevada. Having always wanted to live near Vegas it seemed an appealing option to her. Formerly she had worked in administration with aspirations to establishing her own company. When that failed she took the decision to apply to work in a brothel. She claimed to enjoy the work and felt that it managed to be very 'family orientated' working environment, especially as the octogenarian owner, Mack, looks after the girls. Most of them live in other states and come in for a week at a time to do work, which can fit around other jobs. Kathryn very much sees the work as short term, a springboard to launch another career. In order to work legally in Nevada the girls must be tested every seven days, they are registered with the Sheriff, all commit to background checks and pay for a license to work. Because of these strict health and safety measures visitors are prepared to drive the 100 plus miles from Las Vegas, 50% of their custom comes from the city.
