The Onesta Foundation is a Nevada non-profit whose mission is to provide awareness and advocacy for a fun, safe, healthy, and transparent adult sensual services industry in the great state of Nevada and to promote legalization across the United States and the world! They provide resources designed to improve working conditions, public understanding of the industry, and the many positive impacts of the adult sensual services industry on the health and safety of the community, patrons, and courtesans.
It was founded by the owner of Bella’s Hacienda Ranch, Bella Cummins. She took over the brothel after her late husband passed away, and is now among the longest-serving madams in the world. She created the Onesta Foundation to give courtesans a collective, focuses voice to speak from. Her ultimate agenda is “to radically and absolutely change 21st-century society’s regard for, and treatments of, the world’s oldest profession. The need for physical intimacy is an essential human need, and suppressing it has severely negative effects for individuals and society as a whole.”
