We, the signers of this petition, want to bring awareness to potential sex trafficking victims inside Dennis Hof’s legal Nevada brothels, specifically through the Moonlight Bunny Ranch. Due to evidence uncovered during research and investigations, we have found indicators that teen girls and young women have been and still are being recruited into Dennis Hof’s legal Nevada brothels with fraudulent promises of legitimate prostitution work.
Dennis Hof states that prostitutes can easily make exaggerated amounts of money per month, working with well-known celebrities and they will receive free international promotion through television/cable/radio/media networks. Once these victims are recruited and arrive at the trafficking destination, there is evidence they are being held there by means of debt bondage, physical force, sexual abuse, harassment and discrimination, psychological coercion, drugs and alcohol abuse and illegal sexual contracts. Dennis Hof takes victims across state lines to prostitute and is illegally promoting his Nevada brothels outside their jurisdiction, in conjunction with and while renting a booth at pornography conventions around the United States where prostitution is illegal but publicly advertised by the Los Angeles porn industry and is known to occur at such events.
STATEMENT: Former pornstar and Moonlight Bunny Ranch prostitute, Desi Foxx, “Dennis Hof makes all the prostitutes call him ‘Daddy’ and then he insists the teen girls have sex with him. If they don’t, they lose work and promotion opportunities and are penalized by Madam Suzette.” “Minor children go on the Bunny Ranch online forum which is adult content with no age of consent disclosure and Dennis recruits those underage girls to work at the brothel when they turn 18. I witnessed two teen girls, on their 18th birthday in March of 2009, brought to the Bunny Ranch by Dennis Hof to work as prostitutes. Their debt bondage began immediately. He recruited them while they were still underage. I saw their IDs. They had literally just turned 18 and becoming a brothel prostitute was Dennis Hof’s birthday gift to them.” “The young prostitutes have to have sex with Dennis regularly and he paid them nothing for the time they have to spend with him instead of making money with johns.” “Dennis Hof took me to NYC for a promotion and at dinner that night, he introduced me to a Long Island resident he told me was a potential john. He said the john was to make arrangements directly with me but he was to pay through Dennis so he could get his cut.”
STATEMENT: Former pornstar and Moonlight Bunny Ranch prostitute, Sunset Thomas, “He makes everyone call him Daddy.” “I didn’t even get paid when I was doing the HBO Cathouse stuff. All the promotions, all the radio shows, TV shows, I never got paid a damn thing.” “He would hit me real hard on my leg, to shut up and not talk, not talk for myself.” “What I liked about other brothels [not owned by Dennis Hof], the owners didn’t grope you. They don’t grab boobs and asses. You don’t feel like you have to screw somebody to get work there. You can see it on HBO. Always grabbing his girls, always grabbing their tits” “Any sex worker who chooses to retire should get to go about her life and not be harassed or forced by any means to come back at all. I hope it helps….us, our families and children are being stalked. Online Death Threat the other night.” “I have audio tapes of Dennis Hof threatening me when I left.”
STATEMENT: Former Bunny Ranch prostitute, Cami Parker, “I walked in and he said, ‘Hi, I’m Dennis Hof.” ‘Take off your pants.’ That was it. ‘Take off your pants.’ I was absolutely terrified. Dennis was only the second man I’d ever been with.”“I was attracted to the Ranch after seeing Hof on the Tyra Banks show.” “When I first arrived, the other girls all responded, ‘Daddy’s gonna love you!’ (Oh, yeah, — all the women at the Ranch call Hof “Daddy.”) I asked them if I would have to have sex with Hof. ‘Well no . . . I guess you don’t have to.’ Cue sidelong glances. ‘But you should.’ ‘What does that mean?’ “Well, you want Daddy to like you. You won’t have a very good time if he doesn’t, so if he wants you to, you definitely should. Hof tried to “fix” me, changing the way I did my makeup so I’d resemble one of his exes. Starting out at 5-foot-4, 107 pounds with A-cup breasts, Hof would “forever tell me to lose weight,” even when I hit “96 pounds with DDs,” which “led to a very serious — and nearly deadly — eating disorder. Everyone knows Dennis likes skinny, little-girl bodies.” He eventually told me that, at 23, I was “too old for him” — Hof was 65 at the time — since “girls over 21 are no good anymore.” Upon returning from a trip to visit my mother, I learned the hard way that my three-year relationship with Hof had ended. “When we got back, some girl I’d never seen came up to me and said, ‘You’re Cami. Dennis said I’m his new girlfriend but he’s just waiting for you to leave! When are you leaving?” “He’s a soulless pimp.”
DENNIS HOF ‘The Art of the Pimp’: “On the show Cathouse, and in his memoir, he positions himself as a jolly paternal figure to the working girls at the brothel—albeit, a paternal figure who has sex with some of his employees. Hof exclusively dates his working girls.” “I’ll use Kristy as an example: She was a fan at 14 and she came here.” “Hof slept with [a girl] one minute after her legal birthday, then put her right to work, as if this is something real men brag about.”
