Hi,
My DH has a trip planned for work to Las Vegas for literally a day. I can't go with him this time. What is so scary/bad about Las Vegas that his Rav was not keen for him to go without me? Can someone please enlighten me, thanks.

It's called sin city, baby. Anyways, it's just an overload of lights, casinos, and shows. If you want to sin today, you can anywhere. When I've been to Vegas for a business event, there has literally never been time for me to do anything else, even when I wanted to go and swatch a Cirque performance. I'm not sure why you joining would change anything, unless you are one of those controlling types that do not give your spouse any freedom at all (in which case, I'd recommend you change).

Supposedly there are whores on the street corners enticing all men. And they approach you even if you don’t seem interested.
(Was never there just heard about it)

I've been to Vegas more than once and have never seen this.

If he’s going for one day for work I wouldn’t worry. Then again, if you trust your husband (and why wouldn’t you?) you shouldn’t worry at all.

Sorry nchr, but frum jews don't belong everywhere. We're allowed to have some self control and not go to places we shouldn't be going to. We cannot do as we please.

No one is above that.
That being said, many business shows are held in Vages. If one needs to go for business, there's usually no time to look for trouble.

Deny. This is not true.

Did I write everyone - no. I wrote anywhere. You can sin in Lakewood, Monsey, Brooklyn, etc. You do not need to go to Vegas to sin.

Prostitution is legal.

My not frum grandfather was there years ago and was approached. (He declined.)

Nchr, of course one can sin anywhere. But in some places it's just too easy.....

I used to live there many decades ago (before frumkeit). Yes..there are women working the bars, strip joints everywhere. The bell captains at large hotels will procure women for those that want. They get kickback from the girls. Sorry..it most certainly is true. Otoh..lots of kosher food;)

There is definitely easy access.
I would have no issue with my dh going but that’s because I know him and trust him.
If I didn’t, I have bigger issues at hand.

The only thing hard to avoid, IMO, are the large, prominent advertisements for inappropriate shows (girls in glittery showgirl costumes, etc. on the advertisements).

If you are spending your time in a convention center or meeting room, that's about it.

There is also lots of fun, and not inappropriate stiff to see (gaudy hotel lobbies, spectacular fountains, magic shows, etc.).

Of course, if you go *looking* for trouble, you can easily find it (inappropriate shows, legalized prostitution, etc. And gambling *everywhere* (grocery stores, airports, etc.)).

Going to Las Vegas to hang out is one thing, it's definitely easy to find bad things to do. But going for work is a totally different story...conventions and work meetings keep you busy all day there's not much down time. I've been there for work and never had any issues.

That is not true. Prostitution is illegal in Las Vegas and there are no legal brothers there. It is legal in other counties in Nevada.

I trust my husband, and have never doubted him.
That said, I don't know what he/I am getting myself into.

Tell me more, if he doesn't go looking for it, will he be able to avoid it?
