Ok now I admit I can be naive but the bar I work at is in a hotel and there are 3 other hotels within walking distance and there is this little "massage parlor" that is open 24 hours.  So being that its open 24 hours I assumed that you could get a massage and then pay for a "happy ending" but I had a customer last nite that told me about the place and it really is just a glorified whore house.  Is this somthing that they have everywhere am I that out of the loop I thought that was illegial.  Hmm just some odd questions out of boredom

I often wondered the same thing myself. A guy my SO works with goes to one away from where we live ( we have some close by) anyways he goes there and then later takes a shower at his cousins house instead of at home! Now why go through all that trouble if it is a legal regular massage? Yeah He has a girlfriend who doesn't know, my SO thinks he is weird

Yep, they have them in a lot of cities, and they are illegal.  I like to watch those documentaries they do sometimes on MSNBC.  They aren't advertised as whore houses, and they are very careful not to say exactly what goes on there.  When they do the raids, they usually find beds in the back and no one there is a licensed masseuse.  Those places are also hot spots for trafficked women, which is really sad.

Sadly, they do exist in other places.  Yes, they are illegal.  I heard of one in another state that was under investigation.  Someone called the police to tip them off and sure enough....all those files....not kept secret.  The place was shut down and SEVERAL customers....arrested.

We have a couple around here but they get shut down and open up again in a new location.   Most are legitimate massage parlors that offer "extras" but apparantly they are cautious about the offers.

I have been a massage therapist for two years, anything that says Massage Parlor, is not doing anything that is legal!!!! Might make someone very happy but not legal!

Yeah the guy I had telling me about it last nite told me that they washed him off before and after and stuff then proceeds to show me the pictures of his 8 month old twin daughters and tell me how great his fiance is.

I had another guest tell me that he also called the one by the hotel and all he wanted was a massage and was told $45 on the phone so he went over and the chick who answered the door was all dressed in lingere and high heels and she led him back to a room and told him it'll $100 he argued with her that he was told a massage was $45 and she said they don't do massages and that the cheapest they have is $100.  So he hightailed it out of there.

Yeah but a massage place that is open 24 hours is probably not legal, LOL!
