Crystal is an unincorporated community in Nye County, Nevada, United States.[1] The community is located about 80 miles from Las Vegas. It is on a paved road that exits from State Route 160. As of late 2005 Crystal had two brothels, the Cherry Patch Ranch and Mabel's Ranch, and the Brothel Art Museum.

In November 2005, former "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss said she intended to partner with the brothel owner in order to start a brothel with male prostitutes catering exclusively to female customers.[2] In 2009 however, she announced that she had abandoned those plans.[3]
