“There are unsuspecting citizens that actually go to these places thinking they're going to get an actual massage, and many cases they do, but then they find out there are more services that are offered that they are very offended by.” Capt. Paul Driscoll, Tampa Police Department

Those parlors make $300,000 a year, seriously. Those Asians play slow, passive and frugal, they are taking american men at every turn.

Wouldn't the community be better served by dedicating these resources to the pursuit of perpetrators of violent crimes?

All the money the police spent on this joke a public threat. Violent criminals and thieves could have been caught using that money. So many guys no matter what just can't get laid. They should have a place to go. It is ridiculous prostitution is not legal and regulated. The police wasted their time on nothing.

Leave them alone my god, go get the dope sellers and users, drunk drivers or someone who hurts something. Tax dollars spent to bust tax payers is bull shi- They save rapes, probably save marriages.

The guy who goes their wants to get it, because he's not getting it from a woman(married or don't have a girlfriend). My problem is that I don't have a girlfriend. Some of the people who work there have to pay a cut to the manager or not. Some of the woman weren't born in this country and need to understand what a resume means an how to get an apartment, so they could leave the massage business. Some of the woman who are born here are into it, because it's an easy thing to lear, and they do it until they fine something else to do. As for us customers, if the business are out of business, we would have to work on dealing with our problems.

Honestly, Dude, I am one they are hurting...I am a licensed massage therapist, and I am sick of getting calls from guys who ask for "fullll body massage", "sensual massage" or "massage with a happy ending".
I am all for legalized prostitution, because then it would be out in the open and the girls who do that would have to be licensed as such, and they would have to get regular health screenings, etc. I mean, obviously, there is a demand for prostitution, and it isn't going to go away. I have a problem with those who are so uptight that they think they have to impose their own morality on everyone else...so I see where you are coming from.
I do not think it should ever be ok for them (call girls, escorts, prostitutes, etc) to use another business license as a front...I am sick of getting calls that have nothing to do with therapeutic, clinical massage. It wastes my time, and time is money.
That's why it is not ok, in my opinion. That's who it is hurting.
