Well you got into the wrong business then. I got a license for massage therapy, went through all the irritating things you are going through. Quit the profession. Then realized.. that is just the way it is. Give the happy endings, collect the $$, or just get out of the profession. If I am gonna pay $60 for a rub down, I damn sure want a happy ending.
I am all for that!

It amazes me at how anytime the police bust someone for a real crime such as this one you always have those who cry and scream they need to go after real criminals. These ARE real criminals.
They are real people breaking real laws. Wrong is wrong. You don't have more wrong or less wrong.
If it is wrong then it is wrong. End of story.
If people weren't breaking the laws, the laws will never change. The laws aren't always fair. They are not real criminals just because the law said so. Wake up, sheeps. Give me liberty or give me death, even if it is by STDs.

Sure, some of these places do "extra services" but NOT ALL! The ones that do, give all the ones that are legit a bad name. Just read some of these coments and you'll see that most of you believe that ALL asian massage therapist are prostitutes just because they're asian and those of you who think like that are nieve idiots! I have 4 friends that are asian massage therapist that get extremly angry when they are grouped together with those bad apples making them look bad. These 4 women friends are just as mad at the girls who give "extra service" as the police are! They tell me they wish the police would do more investigations and more raids on these places so they can close them down and instill a good reputation and respect the legitiment asian therapist are looking for in this country. I know first hand how difficult is is for the good ones to come from China or Japan, learn enough english to take over 500 classroom hours at a "Board Certified" Florida school, then apply for a state license just to have everybody think that because they are asian they must all be prostitutes! Well, think about this, how do you feel if you are black and everyone conciders you a criminal, if you have long hair and tattoos you are thought of as a drug addict, if you're a redneck you're concidered a stupid racist, if you ride a motorcycle you must be in a gang, and so on and so on. Look, all I'm trying to say is don't judge anyone by their skin color, ethnic background, the clothes they wear, the amount of tattoos they have or any other ridiculous reason you can come up with. Judge someome for the individual that they are. Would'nt you like to be judge solely by who you are??

Nope. My mom is an accountant. But you're probably sore about your mom being one of the ones they busted so you feel you have to lash out at other people just to cover up your pain and embarrasment!!

Jessica Campbell and her roommate will do anything with anybody for a free drink. just ask the vykin crew they did the diddy with her! just meet up in the so called suite to watch a so called hockey game people can get whatever they want, just ask where the vykin suite is in tampa! i can't understand why any professional company would want to do business with this company. they do the diddy with each other drink, smoke wacky tobacky, and everything else. women if your husband is married watch out for the women who work here (Vykin Corp)or want to appy for a job here. and men if your wife wants to get a job there you better watch out for them to. this company has no ethics at all!

mmm I don't see nothing wrong with getting massage and beside is not out in public, is inside and private. No wonder why some people travel out this country to have fun, cause in here you can't even raise your arm.

Come on people.. Its not just about a happy ending.. it is also about the BBBJ, CBJ, CIM, and all those other exciting things. All men love to "pound it" once in a while.. Its a manly thing, its what we do.
Women, I understand your concerns.. but As Al Bundy once said "men are pigs" We sure are.. But lets be honest. I love my wife, but i love banging an asian chick on the side too. You show my a massage therapist with implants, and ill show you someone who does it all eventually.
why get the implants if u dont want them noticed.. GOD I LOVE ASIAN MASSAGE PARLORS!:-)

Really...juat say no!!! If you are getting a massage and the "therapist" asked if you want them to touch your naughty parts, JUST SAY NO THANK YOU!!! I am sure they are not going to force you to have a happy ending. On a serious note, there could be some humsn trsfficing going on and that is really BAD and shouldnt happen to anyone. Personnally, if they are on the up and up and the workers are documented I say...leave them alone.

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.
It's not hurting you, because Most of the guys that go to these Asian Massage parlors, admire Asian women and want something more from them...the ones that go to you, just want a massage to fix their tired aching body...Big Difference!!! No difference than deciding on Walmart or Target....
As for the calls, you screen them first...

They ought to legalize it and tax it.
If they would do it legally, they would still make $75,000 to $100,000 a year
They can do their massage, go on a date, run a strip club from there as well.
wish I had about 3 or 4 asian girls working for me in leagl business, They no how to treat men better then american women does

"You want to do what!?" "I didn't expect this from an AMP!" Hey Paul, news flash, "they" don't ask the client if they want extras. It's implied by the 'tip' on the side table. Yes, speaking er, uh writting from experience.
