Sunset Thomas to Close Out Career At Wild Horse Brothel

RENO, Nev. — Former adult performer Sunset Thomas will close out her career in the adult biz with one final stint at the Wild Horse Resort & Spa in Sparks, Nev.

Local newspaper the Reno News-Journal profiled Thomas and her swan song appearance at the brothel.

Thomas said that she was one of the first adult performers to successfully bridge the divide between being a porn star and escort.

"It was so funny when I first started doing it," she said. "The adult business gave me a really hard time. They'd go, 'Oh my God. You're making us look bad. You're making us look like sluts and whores and this and that.' I'm like, 'Hello. They think we're sluts and whores anyway.'"

Thomas said that customers who want to spend time with her at the Wild Horse will have to pony up.

"Of course I'm going to charge a little more than the girls that are already out there working," she said in the article. "Because I am a big name and I am a fantasy."

But despite the extra coin needed to retain Thomas' services, the former adult performer said the scenery at the Wild Horse will be unbeatable.

"It's not like a bunch of trailers," Thomas said. "It's gorgeous. It's beautiful. It's kind of like a resort."

In April, Thomas shot her final adult movie, "Into The Sunset." The movie was also the first title for Vavoom Films. Thomas performed with a fan in her final scene: Chris Bellis from Wind Gap, Pa.

Thomas called her final shoot the most relaxed and sexually charged set she had ever been on.

"There were no egos, no issues, just a lot of people who sensed we were doing something very special. My final scene became much more than I originally thought it would be. The poet T.S. Eliot said life doesn’t end with a bang but a whimper — well, we certainly proved him wrong with 'Into the Sunset.'”

Thomas said that although she'll be formally retired after her time at the Wild Horse, she might never be fully retired.

"I've been at it for 17 years," she said. "You can only do it for so long. But it's in my heart. I can't totally get away from it. That's why I'm going to go and do more of the directing and stuff like that."

Thomas will be at the Wild Horse through Sept. 22.
