If you served in the recent liberation of Iraq and you can get a ride to Carson City, Nevada, really fast, you can have sex for free with a legal hooker. The Midnite Bunny Ranch, America’s most storied lawful whorehouse, is offering something called the “T&A 50” to the first 50 men and women fresh from active duty who come sniffing around.
In the service, a TA-50 is the equivalent of a purse—it carries everything you need to survive besides your food and gun (canteen, mattress pad, entrenching tool, and so on). At the Bunny Ranch, the T&A 50 encompasses an official T-shirt, a menu of sex acts, a condom, some drink tickets, and a coupon for a gratis fuck.
When VICE stopped in at the end of July, there had already been about thirteen men and three women who had taken the bait, and there were four Navy guys there at the same time as us, wandering around looking both sheepish and really psyched.
