Alexa Albert invested a great deal of time and energy into the research for this book. She put herself on scene at the Mustang Ranch and other related environments.

After reading Good Time Girls by Lael Morgan I had a better understanding of how prostitution played a major role in developing areas of the country.

Brothel brings the reader into the emotional, physical, and environmental arena of the life of a professional licensed prostitute. It is easy to feel their emotions and relate to their lifestyle without ever having been involved in the world of prostitution.

After reading the book I would be supportive or more brothels throughout the country because I feel they are safer for the prostitute and the johns. We will never rid our society of sex in exchange for money so we should stop pretending that will happen and do our best to protect everyone...including the innocent significant others that have no idea their partners are involved in sexually contact with those who have multiple partners with no licensing or health and disease check-ups. Brothels are far better than having street hookers that we are finding beaten, dead, and diseased.

Education on any subject will often change our views. Dr. Albert has provided and excellent education with this book and we all need to have a better understanding of this socially taboo subject. A subject we literally cannot afford to ignore any longer.
