BDSM and The Law

 
Nevada

This is NOT legal advice.

It is illegal for any member of the Nevada legislature to conduct official business wearing a penis costume while the legislature is in session.

Nevada, with 35 legal bordellos, has no condom problem. The use of condoms in Nevada brothels is compulsory.

If you live in Nevada  ask your Legislator to change these laws

Age of Consent in Nevada is 18
