Dennis Hof, the star of an HBO Reality Show, “Cathouse” and owner of Moonlight Bunny Ranch in Nevada, a star brothel that employs about 500 girls, told ABC News on a Thursday night debate at the Oxford Union that he wants to fund and launch a new brothel for the London Olympics.
Apparently, Hof’s concerns are not about the money, but his relentless fight against human trafficking as controlled by international criminal gangs and his struggle to promote the health of sex-workers and their clients. Hof believes that the London Olympics is going to witness a short-term epidemic in human trafficking, and keeping prostitution legal in London, but making it illegal for pimps and brothels to operate raises deep issues about health and human slavery.
“These illegal brothels are disgusting,” said the owner of the Moonlight Bunny Ranch, “The girls are not tested for diseases and they’re trafficked and forced into it. I’m saying it’s not always like that and it doesn’t have to be like that. We can provide the client with a clean, safe and fun experience.”
Hof, who is well aware of such operations, told ABC News that during the London Olympics, “I expect, 1000 girls to be trafficked in by Southeast Asian, Albanian and African gangs, violent gangs involved in crime and drugs.” He said that his predictions were made upon what he witnessed at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.
Making his case for the economy, Hof said that the traffickers “stand to make a billion pounds that won’t be taxed and that will be stolen away from London.” Hof believes that lifting the ban on pimps and brothels, at least for the duration of the Olympics would assure safe sex for tourists as well as much-needed tax revenue for the U.K. government.
“Sex is as much a human need as food or water,” said Hof’s 25-year old girlfriend and employee Cami Parker. Cami, who accompanied Hof on his U.K. trip, was full of enthusiasm but failed to convince the Oxford Union with her passionate appeals.
Hof told the assembled U.K. think-tanks that legal brothels would “sort out all your problems. It would be a good thing for your country, I’m telling you.”
