Tom Umporowicz said of the brisk business at the police-operated Euro Spa, the first sting operation of its kind in the city. Yet another man who was arrested for sexual exploitation on Sunday returned Monday. These operations are located in small buildings, strip malls and other low-rent locales. Touch Pussy No [ 1 ].

But Spanky added that the sites could be unwelcoming to those outside of the mongering community. A lot of what is being asked has been answered so many times that the old-timers get tired of seeing it and turn inward instead of remembering how they at one point were new themselves. You must grovel for real help or be vouched by someone. If not, good luck.
But even for amateurs, the sites make it remarkably easy to find a local erotic massage parlor, lowering the barrier of entry for a new crop of men with disposable cash and an hour to spare. A quick search on RubMaps revealed 90 open erotic massage parlors in Brooklyn, at least 10 of which were in walking distance to my apartment. Interested to see what goes on inside the parlors, and perhaps get a glimpse of the famous table showers that mongers rave about in their forums, I selected Oasis Spa, which had gotten decent reviews and which users described as "clean and friendly," and walked over on a Sunday afternoon.
At first, the place looked closed, despite RubMaps' promise that it would be open until midnight seven days a week. The door was locked, and the windows were boarded up, although I could see dim mood lighting behind the screens. After a couple of knocks, though, a suspicious middle-aged Korean woman answered the door and reluctantly let me in.
The parlor was quiet, with a bed right in the front room and four closed doors along the hallway. Human trafficking aside, it seemed like a decent place for a massage, although there were no cash registers—or customers—in sight. But apparently, Oasis Spa is interested in neither women nor reporters, because, when I asked about a massage, the woman told me that she didn't understand English and proceeded to force me back onto the street.
My experience aside, the openness with which the mongering community discusses these massage parlors—and with which the parlors themselves offer their services—is surprising when you consider that most of these places are viewed as fronts for prostitution by law enforcement. While non-sexual massage parlors are usually regulated by state and local public health codes, the addition of a hand job is usually interpreted as solicitation, even if sex itself isn't on the menu.
Migration, Labor Markets, and the Rescue Industry. The extent to which massage parlors are involved in sex trafficking is largely unclear. Most of the women working in the parlors are smuggled into the country illegally from China, Korea, Thailand, and other Asian countries and are forced to use their tips to pay off exorbitant snakehead debts.
The setup puts the erotic massage parlor trade squarely in the gray area of sex trafficking, with law enforcement unable to determine which women are being coerced into performing sex acts in massage parlors and which women are having sex with customers voluntarily. Even in the absence of looser prostitution laws, law enforcement officials are opting not to waste resources on busting ostensibly consenting adults who decide to trade sex behind closed doors, said Dank, the lead researcher of the Urban Institute report.
As a result, federal and local law enforcement agencies still know very little about the way that Asian massage parlors operate, except that the networks are highly organized and adept at stashing their money. Officials quoted in the study described a nationwide network of massage-parlor operators who bring women into Flushing, Queens, or Los Angeles, and then rotate them through various AMPs in Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, and across the Midwest.
Whereas Atlanta has the SEC championship going on, they'll have more girls come here. Meanwhile, the money earned by the parlors is eventually wired overseas, making the networks difficult to trace. It's a "very similar scheme you can see across all of the major cities around the country.
Then the money goes back and we can pretty much get it to Hong Kong, but we're not going to get it to China. And clearly, the business model is working. Without any real law enforcement action to crack down on erotic massage parlors, AMPs are continuing to multiply, expanding their tentacles into untapped markets of mongers. It's "not rocket science.

Sign up for the best of VICE, delivered to your inbox daily. Asian erotic massage parlors are mushrooming across Middle America, helped along by a thriving online community of men with disposable cash and an hour to spare. Newsletters are the new newsletters. More VICE. Its new digs include single-family homes, apartments and condos, often in the middle class neighborhoods surrounding major employers.
They function as businesses, offering traditional massages or spa treatments. Intercourse is not common, though there are many exceptions. These establishments sit in strip malls and low-rent neighborhoods, with exteriors that usually seem averse to attracting clients. Like the online community covered previously in this series — in which escorts sell their company and johns rank them explicitly — the Internet has brought Asian massage parlors into the open.
As such, they would seem like ripe targets for police busts. However, like those online communities, there are aspects of the parlors that alter the enforcement equation. Thus, law enforcement runs into the same problem busting parlors as busting pimps — the women can be coached not to speak. Officers therefore depend on a more mundane path to shut parlors down: To operate as a massage therapist, you need certification.
Without one, cops can close them down. These things are money makers. The exception, until recently, was parlors that focused exclusively on feet. A law went into effect last summer that changed that, requiring foot masseuses to get certification and be subject to unannounced inspections. Morris agrees that exploited and trafficked women are at work in some Asian massage parlors.
Both she and Sano award the state high marks in fighting this aspect of the sex trade. This might be different if parlors employed underage women with any regularity. However, Dank and the law enforcement officers we spoke with agree that this is not the case. My friend has never complained about her neighboring massage parlor.
However, the dynamic could change as Asian massage parlors give way to Asian brothels, largely situated in residential zones. Dank says these brothels often surround major employers, such as Boeing and Microsoft. It looks like any other apartment, but three Asian girls are staying there and conducting business all day long.
They have ties to Vietnamese populations in Southern California, and may move prostitutes to and from brothels along a circuit, similar to how gangs move their women. Law enforcement finds many of the women in the brothels have already paid off their passage to the U. Brothels offer advantages over parlors, beyond the fact they charge more money. Situated in non-descript residences, they offer a degree of privacy that parlors do not.
A lot of people [we see] have come from working in nice condos or apartments. Someone reported them and law enforcement did the best they could. The brothels could be seen as a response to the market, catering to a more moneyed clientele than parlors. But a link could explain some of the extra cash being moved overseas from the parlors.
They are not. This could indicate shared management between residential brothels and parlors.
They have ties to Vietnamese populations in Southern California, and may move prostitutes to and from brothels along a circuit, similar to how gangs move their women. Among their findings: It even goes before the paycheck in some cases.
Seattle police set up massage parlor in sex-sting operation, arrest 204 men:
Their exteriors seem not designed to attract customers, with understated neon signs and drawn curtains. Responds in about 5 hours. The unit also arrested a registered sex offender and a man carrying a large stash of drugs, he said. Cum in Mouth No [ 1 ]. Formerly known as Bamboo Spa, the business was shut down in May by Umporowicz and his squad, along with a second location, Cherry Spa, a few blocks north on Roosevelt. Some Data By Acxiom.
