Nicki Amouri hands her camera to a friend, throws her arm over another and smiles wide as she leans in for a shot with the monument her class came to visit.

It's a typical field trip memento -- except that Amouri is visiting a brothel. The monument is a fluffy, queen-sized bed in a Western-themed party room reserved for VIPs and big spenders.



Amouri was one of a dozen Randolph College students who took a tour last week of the Chicken Ranch, a legal bordello in the desert 60 miles outside Las Vegas. The class trip, which included seminars from the working girls, capped a course on American consumption and "the ideas that consume us."




"I think it's fascinating, this is fun for me," said Amouri, a junior at the private liberal arts school in Lynchburg, Virginia, that until last year admitted only women. "Not many people get to do this."


Academic and media inquiries are daily occurrences at many of Nevada's 27 legal brothels. Some shy away from the scrutiny; others, like the Chicken Ranch, welcome the publicity.



"We're always open to trying to educate the public about legalized prostitution," said Chicken Ranch general manager Debbie Rivenburgh, who acknowledged this was the first class tour request she'd received in 21 years.

Why didn't we have those kinds of field trips when I was in school? I got stuck with the circus, boring museums, and the art galleries on Lincoln Road.
