Louis and the Brothel

Published on 2nd February 2017 by

An episode of Louis Theroux’s ‘Weird Weekends’ which first aired in 2003 on the BBC, Theroux spends time at a licensed brothel in the city of Reno in Nevada. He explores the inner-workings of the brothel and attempts to get close to the girls who work in it and their clients.  Theroux has since mentioned that he contemplated becoming a paying customer at the brothel but decided it would be crossing the line.

A decade after the first episode of Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends, and eight years after the last, Theroux released a 2008 follow up book The Call of the Weird: Encounters with Survivalists, Porn Stars, Alien Killers, and Ike Turner, in which he provides an update on what has happened to many of the subjects. It is available to purchase on Kindle, paperback, hardcover, or audio book.
