College Students Tour Nevada Brothel

Nev. - 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 in 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 toured the Chicken
Ranch, a legal bordello in the desert 60 miles outside Las Vegas. Thursday's
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, Va., that until last year admitted only women.
"Not many people get to do this."
