The Nevada brothel industry has struggled as disposable incomes have dwindled, but one entrepreneur continues to prosper. Dennis Hof, owner of the Bunny Ranch has added another establishment to his bordello empire. He says that legalized prostitution is safe and highly regulated, and increasingly socially acceptable.

Hof discusses the state of the industry, what prostitution is like across the pond, and whether it's likely to become legal in Las Vegas.
