Bunny Ranch Brothel Lets Visitors Pay With Bitcoin

A notorious legal brothel in the U.S. says it has accepted bitcoin “in return for sexual services” for the first time ever, The Sun can reveal.

Sex worker Lana West, who works at Nevada’s Moonlite Bunny Ranch, exchanged her “intimate” services for thousands of dollars worth of bitcoin.

Lana revealed that the saucy transaction took place at 6:45 pm on Thursday, April 5, just weeks after the Bunny Ranch said it planned to start accepting the virtual currency as payment.

“A wonderful and rather tech-savvy client came in offering to purchase my services with bitcoin,” Lana explained.

“Dennis [the owner of Bunny Ranch] approved it, and we executed a transfer from the customer’s bitcoin wallet to my own.

“I then paid cash from my personal stash to the office.”

Part of the allure of bitcoin is its anonymity – which is why it’s hugely popular with criminals.

Bitcoin transfers can be made without identifying who is sending the cash, which seems like the perfect solution to paying for sex services.
