Air Force Amy is a legal prostitute in Nevada, pornographic actress, and adult model,[1] who appeared in[2] of the HBO television documentary series Cathouse: The Series. MSNBC has called her "a living legend in the world of sex."[3]


Legal prostitution[edit]

Three months prior to being discharged from the United States Air Force in 1990, Air Force Amy applied to the nearby Chicken Ranch brothel in Nevada, and worked continuously as a legal and licensed prostitute in legal brothels in Nevada until her retirement in 2012. She has worked at the Chicken Ranch, the Mustang Ranch (from 1994 to 1997),[1] the Sagebrush Ranch, the Old Bridge Ranch, the Cherry Patch Ranch, Sheri's Ranch, the Kit Kat Guest Ranch, and the Moonlite Bunny Ranch since 2000.[4][5] As a legal Nevada prostitute, she worked as an independent contractor who turned in half of her money made at the brothel to the house. She earned US$10,000 to $50,000 a month.[6] Amy often reminisced about her Air Force career, and persuaded her employer to offer a Military Appreciation Night: a special promotion for free sex to soldiers.[3]


Around the year 2000 Amy began to branch out in her sex worker career by appearing in pornographic magazines, a wide variety of TV talk shows and regularly guests on various nationally syndicated radio shows. She is a frequent guest on Howard Stern, Tyra Banks, and The Lex & Terry Show. She has written sex and relationship columns for Strip LV Magazine and ANE Weekly and a pornographic film, Lesbian Ho'Down at the Bunnyranch (2000), directed by Ron Jeremy.[4][5] Air Force Amy was repeatedly featured in HBO's documentaries, Cathouse (2002), Cathouse 2 (2003), and Cathouse: The Series (2005), about the Moonlite Bunny Ranch. She was a prominent cast member in most episodes, and called "the all-time top earner" and "the master of the game".[2][7] The "She's Got Game" episode (season 1, episode 5, first aired July 14, 2005), was an in depth personal profile.[8] She also appeared in the 2004 BBC television program The Brothel, on the same subject,[9] and the 2005 documentary Pornstar Pets.[5][10]
