Product Description

Returning to the site of two of HBO s highest-rated adult documentaries 2002 s Cathouse: AU and 2003 s Cathouse 2: Back in the Saddle: AU these 2005 & 2007 Cathouse Editions, take viewers back to one of Nevada s premier tourist attractions: the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel located in a sparsely populated desert community outside of Reno. In addition to up-close-and-personal interviews with Ranch management and the women who work there (many of whom appeared in the first two specials), 17- half-hour episodes will utilize hidden cameras in the brothel s party rooms to eavesdrop on customers and working girls before, during and after sex. The series also includes footage of workshops designed to help customers (many of whom have come here with the blessing of their partners) learn about sex and become better lovers at home, as well as some wild-and-crazy revelry that takes place behind the scenes when the girls aren t working.

Amazon.com

The oldest profession is probably one occupation that Mike Rowe will never get around to for his Dirty Jobs series. Until then, we have Cathouse, a reality series broadcast on HBO that goes behind closed doors at the BunnyRanch, a legal and licensed Nevada brothel that was the subject of two previous America Undercover specials. Owned by burly Dennis Hof and run with maximum efficiency by Madam Suzette, the BunnyRanch is, excuse the pun, always hopping. There is prurient interest in watching the ladies ply their trade (shown in graphic, but not overly explicit detail), but Cathouse puts a human face on prostitution. What's a nice girl like, say, Isabella Soprano, a former prom queen and honor roll student with an infectious smile and laugh, doing in a place like this? Loving it, she assures us, "I love being able to help people." Anyone looking for a gritty expose on prostitution is advised to look elsewhere. Outside of a couple of women who "don't have what it takes" or the odd this-brothel-ain't-big-enough-for-the-both-of-us personality clashes, the BunnyRanch gals are presented as happy hookers. Variety is the spice of this series. The encounters range from "freaky and kinky to romantic," and the ladies are nothing if not versatile. Nothing and no one faze them; not a just-married couple, a transgender, frequent phone calls and videos from someone aptly named "Diaper Boy," nor even an appearance by Dan Haggerty (don't worry, Grizzly Adams fans, you won't see him "bare" all). Come for the series, but stay for Cathouse: The Musical, a 40-min. special in which several of the ladies put their own provocative and saucy spin on the American songbook, including "Let's Do It," "Let's Misbehave," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," and "Why Don't You Do Right?" It gives the series, and this set, the requisite happy ending. --Donald Liebenson

This is the best reality show ever made, in my opinion. It is a truly fascinating show. Be warned- this is as graphic as it gets on cable TV. This show is the graphic account of a brothel, showing every step from admission to orgasm with the girl and the john. It's kind of like a legit version of 'Hookers on the Point', another great HBO show.

The characters are very engrossing, and each episode moves along at a quick pace with a distinct theme/topic. They interview enough people and cut it down so each episode has very little down time.

If you're even mildly interested in this, I recommend it. It's a really interesting story about a guy (Dennis Hoff, the owner/manager) and his business. For all the other things going on, he is a business man, and a very good one.

I studied sociology in college and love documentaries about people who work "underground" professions. Was very excited to see this available as I have loved other similar documentary shows by HBO.

Seemed like a collection of small clips rather than something that made sense as a whole. Each episode is about 25 minutes and may have 3-4 sections with various issues the workers or clients face, such as implants, use of ED medication, or the ins and outs of how the money works. Never really felt that I got the entire story though and I certainly didn't walk away feeling that I knew the girls who worked at the Bunnyranch any better.

Lots of Dennis Hof talking about how these girls are great. Lots of clips of them hanging out in the bar, talking to clients. Lots of clips of guys walking in and looking at the lineup of women. Seemed more scripted than some of the other documentaries on the subject I've seen and certainly not as in depth as books on the subject, such as Brothel.

More graphic than other documentaries, with cameras actually in the rooms with the ladies as they do their work. This may be a good or bad thing, depending on if you like watching people have sex.

Was an interesting series. I expected more though.

I missed seeing the Series on HBO. I had seen a few classic episodes and found them an eye opener to one of the world oldest profession. This disk set was well filmed. This is more like a documentary. Many interview with clients and workers. If one is comfortable about sex (in my opinion) you will enjoy this disk set.

I dont care what anyone says, I love the show Cathouse...
This DVD had all the episodes that were on HBO. The only thing I didn't like was the second disk had a lot of the same clips from the first disk... Other than that, if you like the show you will like the DVD. :)

Finally got a chance to watch the whole series. Its an entertaining look at all the weirdness life has to offer. Cool part is that it does not show the girls as a pack of whores, but as real people with real lives. I watched it with a girl that used to work there for a while. She knows most of the girls and a few of the customers featured in the show, and had extensive comments about all of it! That was quite a trip! Cool show, but not recommended for prudes. It is quite graphic.

I loved this series. I never had HBO so I never got to see this, but this series is one of their standouts. The brothel atmosphere and women are all on display here. This series is needed for anyone that is thinking about heading down to NV for a little visit.

Don't buy, it's all the episodes that they show on HBO. Buy the series, this was kind of a waste. After realizing that I bought only a few episodes, and only the things they show on regular tv I was hoping for some extra scenes, but no. Wasn't worth it
