Jack and Jill Escort in Las Vegas
Las Vegas has become the latest city in the United States to ban the sale of sex-based escort services.
Jack and Juli are two of the top escort agencies in the country, and the pair have been in a long-running battle with authorities in Las Angles, California, over the past year.
The Nevada State Assembly approved the legislation, which passed on Friday and now goes to Governor Brian Sandoval for his signature.
Jack and Jill have been battling with the California Highway Patrol for more than a year to enforce the new law, and in May they won a court order to stop escorts from driving through the city and forcing them to stop.
However, Jack and Joanna say they are not going anywhere.
“It’s not over,” Jack told the Guardian.
He said: “We’re still going to fight, and we’ll get the law changed.”
“We’re not going to let this continue to happen to us.”
In February, the Nevada legislature passed a bill that would ban the sales of sex services that don’t conform to California’s laws.
Under the new rules, sex workers would be required to report any violations, and escorts would have to undergo background checks.
But there are other restrictions.
If the woman’s name is used, the escort agency must notify the police.
And the woman can’t be paid in cash, only by credit cards.
So if a woman wants to travel to Vegas, she has to go through a $10,000-a-week escort agency, Jack said.
These days, the Escort San Diego has an annual budget of more than $50,000, and Jack says it will soon expand to Las Vegas.
In the meantime, the two escorts say they will continue to drive the city to work.
It’s still illegal to escort anyone under 18.
