Portland is occasionally known in the media as Pornland due to its national reputation for having a thriving sex industry. Common claims cited are the "largest legal sex industry per capita" and the "most strip clubs per capita", both claims trouncing sex industry hot spots Las Vegas and San Francisco. Portland's sex industry is also extremely diverse, covering a large spectrum of legality and morality, including strip clubs, sex shops, swinger clubs, burlesque performances, lingerie shows, erotica, pornography, BDSM dungeons, escort services, massage parlors, prostitution, and sex worker trafficking.
