Clark County Commissioners have lifted the ban on cross-gender massages. The county regulation mainly targeted lone therapists doing outcalls at homes and hotel rooms. Those who objected to the rule said it lumped them with prostitutes and hurt business. Yesterday’s adjustment has the county joining cities. Las Vegas withdrew its law last year and Henderson and North Las Vegas also allow cross-gender messages. The county will issue business licenses to therapists, but the commission shifted the responsibility of code enforcement to the state.
