"The Chicken Ranch is a business where the internal competition is intense; it is a commune without hemp, a dorm where Tolstoy is never read." The New York Times
Welcome to world famous Chicken Ranch, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada where the girls are dysfunctional and the johns delusional. The Sundance Channel’s PLEASURE FOR SALE is a raunchy and revealing look into the topsy-turvy business of selling sex.
A stunningly realistic and honest portrayal of the day-to-day life in “The Best Little Whorehouse in the West,” this enticing six-part series satisfies the social voyeur in all of us. Directors Joe and Harry Gantz (Taxicab Confessions) focus a sympathetic eye on the fascinating and often troubled stories of the women working in the oldest profession, from neurotic Gabby who contracted lupus from a silicone leak in one of her implants, to world-weary Rose, a self-proclaimed perversion expert who turned her first trick at age 16.
Unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, PLEASURE FOR SALE is also strangely familiar territory, plumbing the themes of love and loss, frustration and fury amidst the nitty-gritty grind of daily brothel life.
EPISODE 1: Newcomer, Chyna, arrives at the Chicken Ranch to provide for her and her disapproving husband. The ranch’s elder stateswoman, Rose satisfies a customer’s unique fetish while friends Gabby and Veronica feud as rumors surface.
EPISODE 2: Meet more of the ladies as client traffic at the Ranch remains below average, fueling backbiting and competition among the women.
EPISODE 3: Kittie visits her husband and takes a trip to Austin, TX with him after a downturn in business. An “in too deep” relationship looks to build between Presley and one of her regular customers.
EPISODE 4: Gabby seeks advice for her leaking silicon implant while Chyna participates in an S&M art film. Rose has a date with a regular client separated from his wife relying on her for loving intimacy.
EPISODE 5: Sinful, a prostitute raised as a Mormon and a devout religious believer, visits a Baptist minister opposed to Nevada’s Brothels.
EPISODE 6: Chyna visits home in Vancouver, B.C and reveals to her disappointed aunt that she is a prostitute. Several ladies re-evaluate their work for personal reasons.
