Not your average stud farm
The New York Times informs me that Heidi Fleiss, the famous call girl of Hollywood, is opening up “Heidi's Stud Farm,” an all-male brothel on 60 acres in Nevada (where you can have brothels legally). While Heidi points to women having more money and power than ever, there are still some sexperts that believe these brothels will not work the same way for women and they do (quite successfully) for men.
Probably already realizing the obvious differences, Heidi plans to create a “girl porn” atmosphere with salon and spa like luxury at call-girl prices ($250 an hour).
I recently watched “Cat House” an HBO mini-documentary series about the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, the famous Nevada brothel. The girls (left) in the show were moderately attractive, the rooms were pretty trashy and the place itself was sketchy looking. I can’t imagine any of these attributes flying for the women grace Heidi’s Stud Farm.
What women expect versus what men expect speaks to the many differences between the sexes that the porn industry has been onto for years (and many couples still don’t get). The girl porn that is “Love Actually” versus “Anus and Andy” show the great chasm between male and female sexuality. That is not to say that there are not females that love “Forest Hump” and males that can’t get enough Jane Austen classics, but I am not sure you could keep a brothel in business on either of these extremes.
So it will fall on Heidi’s, um, shoulders to find that fine line where handsome prince fantasy meets thirty-something failed actor reality as women pay for something a bit beyond holiday fling or pool boy tryst.
I imagine, if Heidi keeps her stud farm’s rip-able corsets, clean sheets, candles and champagne well in stock, she may find the sexual deviant in almost any woman’s, um, heart.
