The first legal male prostitute in the U.S. has left a Nevada brothel. Why? Fewer than 10 customers after a two-month stint!
Brothel owner Jim Davis of the Shady Lady Ranch, a brothel 150 miles northwest of Las Vegas, said a new replacement stud has been hired, but the original 25-year-old “prostitude,” who worked simply under the name “Markus,” could be back.
Bobbi Davis, who co-owns the brothel with her husband and runs it as its madam, said the departure of Markus was a mutual decision.
Markus is still listed under the name “Markus Destin” by adult talent agency OC Modeling.
Davis said the brothel would keep employing men to have sex with women, including its latest hire, a Las Vegas man in his mid-30s who works under the name “Y. Not,” who has had about 10 customers since Markus has left.
The focus of the business, however, will remain on women prostitutes serving men, Davis said.
The Shady Lady Ranch created a huge stir in Nevada’s brothel industry when it successfully won state and county approval to hire a male sex worker.
After hiring Markus, the Davises cut him off from speaking with reporters after his first two interviews, in which he compared himself with Rosa Parks and Mahatma Gandhi.
Markus was the subject of a first-person story by the New York Post after a female reporter hired him but she said they did not have sex.
