The women would work 16-hour days, from 2 p.m. to 6 a.m. Girls could make up to $100,000 a year, a profit they split 60/40 with Ginger. A sign in one of the girl's rooms states, "Considering Services Rendered, It is Customary and Appreciated to TIP Accordingly."
The Oasis closed in 1988 after Ginger got a tip that the FBI would be raiding the brothel. She and her girls grabbed a few belongings and left everything else, convinced they could return at a later time.
"Each girl saw an average of 40 customers a night," Linda Hornbuckle, a tour guide at the Oasis Bordello Museum, said.
Maids were in charge of managing a set of egg timers kept in the kitchen. Once a timer went off, it was up to a maid or bouncer to make sure the customer was out of the room or would pay more money for services rendered.
This couch and pillow are part of one of the waiting rooms at the Oasis Bordello Musum. Men could order a drink while waiting for their chosen girl. Drink prices were exorbitant, and cocktails were watered down and full of ice.
Inside the rooms, mannequins sport lingerie left behind by its last occupant.
What would a Red Light District be without red lights? A cabinent of red lightbulbs remains fully stocked at the Oasis.
A price list or "menu" is displayed in Madam Ginger's room at the Oasis. Eight minutes "Straight, No Frills" with one of Ginger's girls cost fifteen dollars in 1988.
