Abandoned US brothel to become museum
London, Aug 9 (IANS) An abandoned brothel in the US will soon be turned into a museum where visitors can see how commercial sex was performed 40 years ago and "feel the smell and the sweat of sex in the air".
The Cherry Patch, in Crystal, Nevada, opened in the 1970s, when Nevada became the only state in the US to legalise brothels, the Daily Mail reported.
The former brothel, owned by Denis Hof since 2010, will launch a tour of its shower rooms, where people can see "all the original mattresses and furniture".
The owner has another establishment, The Love Ranch.
"What we're trying to do is show people a piece of Nevada history with that brothel," the owner said.
Visitors can walk through it and see an actual brothel -- what it looked like and how it operated.
The building, in the middle of a desert, is a maze of wood panelled hallways and small pitch-black rooms with a number on each.
Sofas line the main rooms where the prostitutes greeted clients and performed a "line-up" ritual where they introduced themselves to customers.
Each small room still has its bed, some with sheets and pillows, looking exactly the way it looked years ago when it closed.
