My wife and I purchased three "Adult" DVDs for late night viewing. The first was "Forbidden" and it was neither a very good movie, nor was it particularly arousing. A waste of time would be a good short description.
The next night we viewed "The Ranch," a story of a Nevada bordello. Now, just in case you haven't heard, prostitution is legal in all but two counties in Nevada. Once you get used to recognizing the establishments you'll find them scattered all over Nevada and many of them are referred to as "ranches." Some are way out in the country and some are in the smaller towns. About 50 years ago when I was a graduate student I visited "The Big Four" in Ely, Nevada. It was located about one block off the main street and looked like a low-key tavern. Two of us were taken there by a friend who just had to show us what a real bordello was like. We didn't partake, rather we just sat at the bar and drank a beer, much like one of the characters in the movie. Three young ladies came out and tried to entice us. I was a bit taken back in that the three women weren't glamorized at all as you usually see in Hollywood depictions. If you saw them out on the street, you would never recognize their profession. Never. Well, although somewhat tempting, at that time the going rate was said to be about twenty bucks. That might seem terribly cheap, but when you're working your way through school at at six bits an hour, it's a week's wages and is very expensive. The establishment was neat and clean and nothing like what must go through most people's minds when they think of a bordello. While I was there a policeman came in, and he checked my ID to make certain I was old enough to drink.
So that little experience helped me to understand and appreciate the movie "The Ranch." The movie involved the lives of a half-dozen prostitutes, all very real people with very real lives. The acting was excellent and the people were believable. All of the women appeared at least partially nude in one place or another, but it was done in a rather tasteful fashion. There were only a few actual sex scenes and they were rather low key. From my own experience, I'd say the bordello was rather large and glamorized and the woman were closer to the Hollywood versions of prostitutes and their surroundings. But, alas, my experience is limited to one visit of one bordello and that was 50 years ago. Who knows what they might be like today?
In any case, "The Ranch" is a rather good movie. It's touching in places and funny in others. I wouldn't give it five stars, but I have no trouble at all with four. If you're just seeking arousal, there's better stuff around. But, if you're looking for a well done, interesting adult movie, I'd highly recommend "The Ranch."
