The originator of the phrase “the world’s oldest profession” was Rudyard Kipling. His 1888 story about a prostitute begins, “Lalun is a member of the most ancient profession in the world.”
Such terms as GRO and masseuse are synonymous with prostitute.

Cops arrest pimp named ‘Jason Cock’ at KLIA
KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): A pimp, who goes by the nickname of ‘Jason Cock’, was arrested while on his way out of the country at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) near here on Nov 22 last year.
Bukit Aman’s Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Societies (D7) principal assistant director Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa said the 30-year-old man was believed to be heading to a neighbouring country to bring in women to work as prostitutes in Malaysia.
“The investigating unit found that the activity was carried out using the Wechat application as a modus operandi to find customers,” he said when contacted by Bernama here today (Jan 3).
He said further investigations revealed that the syndicate had been active in the Klang Valley and Penang since 2014.
Rohaimi said based on intelligence, about 30 women comprising locals, Indonesians and Filipinos aged 18 to 35 years old were used for prostitution.
“Most of the prostitutes are working individuals and students with financial constraints who want to increase their income and live a life of luxury.
“They use the term ‘FL’ (Free Lance) for prostitutes, call the pimp a ‘Master’ and individual clients are known as ‘Bongkers’,” he said.
Most of the clients are locals aged 25 to 50, and they are charged between RM200 to RM400 for a session.
He said checks revealed ‘Jason Cock’ had no past criminal records and that the latter was currently remanded for 60 days under the Prevention of Crime Act 1959. – Bernama

14-year-old Malaysian teen has sex with 35 men to buy smartphone
A 14-year-old girl prostituted herself 35 times to save up for a smartphone, reported China Press.
The paper quoted SAC Datuk Rohaimi Md Isa, who is Bukit Aman Secret Societies, Gambling and Vice Division (D7) principal assistant director, as saying the case was one of many involving underage schoolgirls allegedly involved in the sex trade the past year.
Based on police intelligence, local underage prostitutes were offering their “services” for as low as RM300 (S$101.50), he said.
Part of that sum would be divided by syndicate members.
“This means the 14-year-old girl would only receive RM150 as her cut,” said SAC Rohaimi.
“To afford a smartphone that costs around RM5,000 (S$1,691) , she would have had to entertain her customers 35 times,” he said.

Prostitution a big problem in Malaysia, says ex-hotel security man
He says forced prostitution in the country is tied to other problems such as human trafficking, minors being forced into prostitution, undocumented foreigners and the spread of disease and drugs.
PETALING JAYA: A former hotel security officer has warned Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar against ignoring how “big a problem” prostitution is in the country.
Recently, Khalid acknowledged that prostitution existed in Malaysia but added that authorities had been able to contain it.
JK Associates principal consultant Khen Han Ming said his experience as a hotel security officer from 2012 to 2016 had brought him up-close to the prostitution trade in the country and he claimed it was a bigger problem than the IGP thought.
“We have basically two scenarios,” he told FMT. “Forced prostitution and freelancers.”
“Forced prostitution is what you mostly see in streets such as Bukit Bintang, Lorong Haji Taib, and Chow Kit Road where prostitution is run from shop houses or cheap hotels modified into brothels.
“Then you have freelancers who are foreigners who come on social visits and don’t have pimps or agents. They cater to the ‘upscale market’ and operate around Jalan P Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang and of course Bukit Bintang. Basically, anywhere near luxury hotels.”
He said it was important for police to address forced prostitution in the country as there were numerous other crimes tied to it including human trafficking.
“Forced prostitution involves foreigners who are smuggled into the country. Nowadays, they travel with valid documents and are on social visit passes but have either overstayed or are brought in and out of the country by syndicate operatives.”
Khen claimed that some of those involved in “smuggling” prostitutes included hotel operators, food operators and taxi drivers.
“Usually, these are the ones working closely with human trafficking,” he claimed.

SENIOR CITIZENS OF SINGAPORE ‘LOVE’ THE CHINAWOMEN AND VIETNAMESE DOLLS IN JB!

Singaporean ‘uncles’ flocking to JB for fun with hookers
Most of the senior citizens are willing to part with between RM80-150 each, every time they meet with hookers from Vietnam and China.
PETALING JAYA: There’s something tantalising across the Causeway and it’s neither the food nor shopping in Johor Bahru. For a number of Singaporean retirees, it’s the lure of foreign prostitutes that keeps them coming for more.
In an article in The Star Online, that quoted the China Press, a street in Johor Bahru has been earning a reputation for itself as a “red-light district”, thanks to the many older men from Singapore who head there to meet prostitutes from Vietnam and China.
The meeting places are common coffee shops dotting the street, where girls decked in revealing attire, approach the “uncles” as they are called.
…another Singaporean, refusing to give his name, said he and his friends headed to Johor Bahru at least once a week in search of these women. He also said they typically spent between RM80-150 on the girls each time they met, depending on the girl’s age and how she looked.

10 women rescued in raids at Johor Baru’s massage parlours
JOHOR BARU: The state police have rescued 10 foreign women believed to be victims of sexual exploitation in raids held at several massage parlours in the city last night.
The victims comprised of eight women from Vietnam and two from China, aged between 16 and 34.
Johor’s Criminal Investigations Department (CID) chief Senior Assistant Commissioner Azman Ayub said police also arrested 30 women, comprising seven Thais, 20 Vietnamese and three Indonesians, aged between 18 and 28, in the operation called ‘Ops Noda’.
“Also hauled up were 17 patrons, all men, comprising locals and six Singaporeans, aged between 23 and 41,” he said.
Ten officers and 42 members of the Johor CID raided the five massage centres and one entertainment outlet in Johor Baru city.
Meanwhile, at the entertainment outlet, 29 local men and seven from China aged between 30 and 52 were detained.
LOCAL syndicates have been hiring professional photographers to produce “cover girl” shots of prostitutes to attract more customers, Harian Metro reported.
The photographs would then be shared among specific groups on social media app WeChat to advertise the prostitutes.
Disguised as a potential customer on WeChat, a Harian Metro reporter found that the going rate for the advertised sexual services was between RM180 and RM500.
However, only customers who passed the syndicate’s “vetting” process were allowed to enter the hotel designated for the purchased services.
A raid by the Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department at a spa in Cheras earlier this month uncovered a studio fully equipped with high-quality photography devices and beds used by prostitutes to model in erotic poses.
The so-called spa offered the services of Vietnamese and Indonesian prostitutes.
Kuala Lumpur Immigration Department intelligence and operations chief Mohd Shahrulnizam Ismail said the spa offered nude massages and sexual services to customers, who were further enticed with discount vouchers worth RM20 each.

Sex worker stabbed by disgruntled client at Penang hotel
GEORGE TOWN: A Thai transgender sex worker was nearly killed at a hotel here after allegedly being stabbed multiple times over a bargain that went sour.
Northeast district chief ACP Anuar Omar said it started when a man going by the name of “Tommy” found the 28-year-old transgender’s contact on WeChat.
He said Tommy then met the transgender at a hotel along New Lane, which is famous for its roadside hawkers, at 11.30pm and started bargaining over the “expensive rates”.
He said the man finally appeared to agree to the price offered. However, instead of reaching for his wallet, he went for his knife and started stabbing the worker in the stomach.
“The victim was hurt in the abdomen, back, arms, neck and face,” Anuar told reporters today.
“Initial investigations showed that (the transgender) is a tourist who arrived in Penang last week and was returning very soon.”

IPOH: Police “unearthed” about 38 foreign female guest relations officers who were hiding in underground rooms during a raid at an entertainment outlet in Medan Ipoh here.
The women from China and Vietnam, in their 20s and 30s, had hid themselves in two underground rooms, which uses hydraulic systems to lock its metal doors. It took the police several hours to locate them.

“Previously, we’ve only encountered cases whereby the GROs just hid in storerooms, in secret rooms behind walls or up in the ceiling,” he told reporters after the raid.
“The rooms are two metres high with an area of 46sqm and equipped with mattresses, air conditioning and food supply,” he said.

WAO: Women are commodities to men who pimp wives
PETALING JAYA: The Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO) believes that men who force their wives into prostitution do not regard women as human beings in the first place.
WAO executive director Sumitra Visvanathan said the men thought nothing of prostituting their wives because they had very little respect for women in general.
“In his mind, she has no right to make any choice and she has no integrity as a person so in the end, all she is to him is just a ‘thing’. He can prostitute a thing,” she told FMT.
Sumitra said most women who suffered domestic abuse also lose self-confidence, and as such the value they placed on themselves was significantly diminished.
“When a man assumes power and control, in the case of domestic abuse, the power and control is taken from the woman.”

ALOR SETAR: A 34-year-old man was detained after he allegedly forced his wife into offering sexual services to foreign workers since December last year.
On Thursday, the 24-year-old wife was caught by Rukun Tetangga staff investigating “suspicious” activities at a house in Bandar Amanjaya, Sungai Petani.
Jobless man arrested for allegedly prostituting wife
An unemployed man has been arrested for allegedly forcing his wife into prostitution in Sungai Petani, Kedah, according to the police.
In the 9.30pm incident last night, the 23-year-old woman claimed her husband forced her to have sex with a Bangladeshi for RM50.
Kuala Muda district police chief Md Zukir Md Isa said the woman claimed she had to follow her husband’s instruction for fear of being physically assaulted by him.
“The woman claimed she was forced to prostitute herself when the house was raided by Rukun Tetangga (members) who received a complaint that ‘khalwat’ (close proximity) was taking place.
“The husband, who was waiting in a car, was also detained but the Bangladeshi managed to escape,” he is quoted as saying by Utusan Online today.
Md Zukir said the case is being investigated under Section 372(1)(a) of the Penal Code, which relates to exploiting a person for purposes of prostitution.

Dhoby Ghaut spa ‘almost like a brothel’ http://ebx.sh/1UgaepG
Suspect your husband is cheating on you?
Chances are, you might find him at two spas in the Dhoby Ghaut area, private investigators (PIs) tell The New Paper on Sunday.
Among the litany of spas that offer illegal sexual services in Singapore, the PIs claim that these two massage parlours are the most notorious of the lot.
This is primarily because of the number of cheating cases that have led PIs to them, say the two investigators.
Also, one of the spas is supposedly the largest “dirty” massage establishment in Singapore, says veteran PI James Loh from International Investigators.
“Others might have five to 10 girls. This one is very well run and has 20-plus girls, so there are more options for the customer,” says Mr Loh, who has visited both places four times each for separate investigations.
“It is almost like a brothel.”
Another PI, who wanted to be known only as Mr Tan, agrees.
He says the two spas have run these services “for quite a number of years”, and have so far avoided closure.

Di dalam premis ini terdapat puluhan pelacur yang terdiri daripada warga Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, dan juga China. Malah kesemua pelacur ini telah menyalahgunakan pas lawatan sosial yang diberikan. Sindiket yang menaungi premis ini turut menjalankan khidmat “escort girl” dengan bayaran tertentu.
Tidak cukup dengan perkhidmatan pelacuran, Casanova Kafe turut menjalankan perniagaan perjudian siber di dalam premis ini. Premis ini mempunyai lesen perniagaan hotel dan kafe minuman yang sah tetapi menyalahgunakannya bagi menjalankan aktiviti haram pelacuran dan perjudian.
Kewujudan premis pelacuran dan perjudian berhampiran IPK Kuala Lumpur bukan lagi sesuatu yang menghairankan oleh kerana PDRM Kuala Lumpur masih belum bangun dari tidur mereka dan tiada kesungguhan ditunjukkan untuk membanteras kegiatan tidak bermoral ini walaupun di depan mata mereka.

According to the charge sheet, the offence was committed at a food stall in Jalan Sultan, Dang Wangi near here, on May 18 to police officer G. Bala.

While their stable of prostitutes earned money the hard way, spreading their legs for clients, this couple had it easy…They were the pimps.
Quek Choon Leong, was sentenced to 33 months’ jail and his wife business raked in $25,000 to $28,000 a month until their arrest on 23 July 2013. His wife was jailed 29 months on 8 August 2015, pleading guilty to 34 counts of living on prostitution earnings, harbouring women procured for prostitution, receiving them at Changi Airport, and obstructing the course of justice. Quek’s trial has been postponed as he makes arrangements for their two children. Photo: The Straits Times
A Singaporean who, together with his Vietnamese wife, earned a tidy sum of $25,000 to $28,000 a month from vice was jailed for 33 months yesterday.
Quek Choon Leong, 34, and Huynh Thi Kieu Trang, 35, had operated a large-scale and sophisticated enterprise with 32 prostitutes and 10 other staff for two years until their arrest in July 2013.
To run the enterprise, the couple recruited several helpers, including two agents in Vietnam to procure attractive women. Each woman would pay Huynh $450 a month, raised to $600 in 2013, for lodging. They signed a tenancy agreement, with a set of “rules” imposed by the couple.
Huynh would arrange for the women to solicit customers in Geylang and hire lookouts for law enforcement officers so she could warn her workers.
On average, the couple had about 20 women working under them per month, and received prostitution earnings of $25,000 to $28,000.
Quek used part of the earnings to gamble at the Resorts World Sentosa casino, converting chips worth between $23,630 and $29,000 on three occasions in June and July 2013.
DPP Zhou said investigation showed that in October 2014, Quek rented a unit in Changi Road at $3,000 a month. They were on court bail at the time.
And some time before early August last year – weeks before she was jailed – Huynh again arranged for three Vietnamese women to come and work as prostitutes.
For that, she was given an additional 10 months’ jail in April this year which will take effect after she finishes her current jail sentence.

Teenaged boys and the oldest profession
Those interviewed said national service is one stage in life where many young men get introduced to paid sex by their more sexually experienced mates. Take, for example, full-time national serviceman Raymond (not his real name), who had his first sexual encounter with a prostitute last year when he was 18.
Allure of paid sex for teenage boys
More teenage boys paying for sex: Study http://str.sg/4kNU
Never having had a girlfriend, or one who is sexually active, and watching pornography frequently are the two strongest reasons why teenage boys turn to prostitutes, according to the first study here on teens who pay for sex.
Other reasons that some boys are more likely than others to visit prostitutes include the fact that they started having sex before the age of 16, said Associate Professor Wong Mee Lian of the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health at the National University of Singapore, who led the study.
They could have reached puberty earlier and tend to have older friends who exposed them to behaviour that included smoking, drinking and sex with prostitutes, she said.
Another factor is that these teens have lower self-esteem.
“These boys want to feel accepted and want to boost their ego. They may not have a girlfriend to boast of, but they can pay to ‘conquer’ a prostitute,” she added.
Her study found that educational background or the type of home the family lived in was not a factor in whether a boy was more likely to go to a prostitute.
Doctors and social workers interviewed are concerned by the high proportion of teens who went to prostitutes. They believe this is because of the proliferation of online sex sites and forums.
Besides Singapore, some boys also visited prostitutes in neighbouring Johor Baru, Batam and Bangkok, the study found.

In France: You may practise the oldest profession legally but it is illegal for your client to pay you!
This is to help stamp out sex trafficking. Only a minority enter the oldest profession willingly. Many are forced to it by circumstances and dire financial need.

Prostitution in France made legal under new laws, but paying for it ruled illegal
France has introduced new prostitution laws, making soliciting sex legal, but activities around it such as brothels and pimping have been made illegal.
Supporters said the legislation would make it easier to crackdown on sex trafficking, but prostitutes said it would leave them in limbo.
The changes have been met by rallies, with some people calling for the abolition of prostitution all together, and others demanding the laws be scaled back.
People who want to pay for sex could now cop a 1,500 Euro fine, which increases if they are found re-offending.
Those prosecuted would also have to attend education classes, about the harms of the sex trade.
Why are the laws changing?
The French Government estimates 90 per cent of the country’s 20,000 to 40,000 sex workers are victims of Nigerian, Chinese and Romanian sex trafficking networks.
MP Guy Geoffroy, member of the conservative party Les Republicans, said from now on the onus would be on the clients.

LONDON: A new law passed in France that makes it an offence to pay for sex and moves the punishment from prostitutes to clients, has been hailed as revolutionary by activists who hope it will help stamp out sex trafficking.
Under the law, passed on Wednesday, those who pay for sex will face fines of up to 1,500 euros ($1,700) for the first offence, and up to 3,750 Euros ($4,300) for subsequent offences.
They may also have to attend a prostitution awareness course. France follows Northern Ireland, Canada, Sweden, Norway and Iceland in introducing laws designed to punish the client without criminalising those who have been driven into prostitution.
“That’s a revolution in France because they’ve been criminalised for the last 76 years,” Gregoire Thery, secretary general of the French non-profit Mouvement du Nid, which works with men and women in prostitution, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation on Thursday.
There are between 30,000 and 37,000 sex workers in France, according to the Central Office for the Suppression of Trafficking of Human Beings.
Nearly 85 percent of them are victims of human trafficking, mainly from Bulgaria, Romania, Nigeria, Cameroon and China, Thery said by phone from France.
Only a minority enter the oldest profession willingly. Many are forced to it by circumstances and dire financial need.
Others are trafficked…

Sex workers’ babies are sold for up to RM40,000 while rejected babies are returned to syndicates to be brought up as future sex workers.
PETALING JAYA: Syndicates are capitalising on Malaysia’s stringent child adoption procedures and turning sex workers into “baby factories”, Tenaganita claimed today.
According to a report by The Sun Daily, Tenaganita coordinator Aegile Fernandez said some childless couples were resorting to adopting children outside official procedures.
The legal process for adopting a child can take up to two years, and involved a lot of paperwork, interviews and monitoring by the Welfare Department.
Fernandez said in the past, a pregnant sex worker would be sent for an abortion, but now, the pregnant sex worker would be forced to continue providing sex services while carrying the child, putting the baby at risk of developing health problems, including HIV.
“Now the syndicates send her to a clinic for the baby’s delivery, after which a doctor would provide a letter furnishing a different identity complementing the new parents,” she said.
The sex worker’s baby can fetch high prices depending on the child’s gender, weight, health and even skin colour.
A booking fee alone for a child is between RM5,000 to RM7,000.
The price for a girl is priced no more than RM25,000, while a boy can be sold for between RM12,000 to RM40,000.
Fernandez further claimed that rejected babies were handed back to the syndicate to become a victim of child trafficking or brought up to be a future sex worker.
“At some places where we’re involved such as Chow Kit, there are children being watched over by another sex worker.

85 months’ jail, S$130,000 fine for pimp who earned more than S$2.5 million from escorts http://bit.ly/20Nw7oD
- Posted 11 Feb 2016 17:56
SINGAPORE: Chew Tiong Wei, a pimp who earned more than S$2.5 million from his social escort business, was jailed 85 months and fined S$130,000 on Thursday (Feb 11). The 38-year-old started the business in 2007 and over the years procured more than 20 prostitutes, many of whom were underage.
Chew has also been ordered to pay a penalty of S$152,893.95 relating to offences under the Income Tax Act for tax evasion, to the tune of S$26,964.65 from 2012 to 2013. He had also fraudulently obtained S$24,000 in cash payouts and bonuses from the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore’s Productivity and Innovation Credit scheme.
Chew pleaded guilty in December last year to 28 charges, the bulk of which relate to living on the earnings of a prostitute and procuring women for the purpose of prostitution. Another 73 similar charges, including 22 charges for making obscene films, were taken into consideration during sentencing.
District Judge Lim Keng Yeow had strong words for Chew, whom he called “a corrupting influence” on “misguided minors”. Chew had earlier admitted to multiple charges for commercial sex with a minor. He would tell the teen girls that he needed to “try them out” before employing them, and would give them “pointers” on how to improve their sexual performance when servicing clients.
China’s citizens can travel to Malaysia visa free.
Malaysia will be a preferred nation for Chinawomen practising their profession of prostitution.
Between 2013 and April this year, over 11,000 women from China, mostly on social visit passes, were arrested for prostitution. According to the authorities, the number of those who escaped is definitely more.

There was not the slightest sign that the world had crashed around her, as she, along with about 50 of her friends, remained engaged in their intense conversation… sharing a giggle every now and then.
From the other end of the lobby, my eyes were fixed on her as the senior police officer, whom I had joined in a midnight raid earlier at several locations in the city, tells me of the powers she had that he couldn’t seem to counter, despite his long years dealing in anti-vice work.
“You see that woman in red? I have arrested her twice… this will be the third.
“For a foreigner who is clearly abusing the country’s laws, she seems to be bigger than that and everything else combined,” he said of the woman they had plucked out from a dingy room littered with used condoms, in one of the city’s back alleys.
These foreign working girls, with Chinese and Vietnamese nationals topping statistics, are abusing the privilege of being allowed to visit this country to make a killing in the lucrative vice trade.

Elderly Chinese man dies during sex while still physically attached to prostitute http://bit.ly/1PY1AiM
An elderly Chinese man died while having sex with a prostitute, according to several online media outlets.
Disturbing footage of the pair being wheeled out of an unidentified building in China has emerged online. It was first shared on Chinese video sharing platform Miaopai before being shared by other users on LiveLeak, The Daily Mail reported.
The clip shows paramedics wheeling a supposedly dead body on a hospital stretcher – with a moving person still on top. Both of them were covered with a blue blanket.
Bystanders could be seen watching on in horror.
The two were reportedly sent to a hospital to be surgically separated, according to online news website Inquisitr.com.
Although uncommon, it is still possible to die during sex and it can also be caused by an increased strain on the heart, The Sun reported. This strain can lead to a heart attack, which is more common among men.
Another possible occurrence during intercourse is penis captivus, where two sexual partners become stuck together during sexual intercourse. Vagina muscles clamp down on the penis harder than usual, according to The Daily Mail.
It is still unknown as to what happened to the pair in China.

Geylang visit ruined after SG husband unknowingly hires own wife
A 52-year old Singapore man has had the shock of his life after arranging to meet up with a prostitute in the Geylang district last Friday evening. Unknown to the client, his female companion for the evening turned out to be none other than his wife of 23 years.
The terrible mix-up occurred after the man made a Friday night appointment at a Geylang establishment and was told his regular girl was unavailable. The receptionist was apologetic but mentioned that a new employee had recently been hired who was receiving rave reviews from a number of clients. “Book me in!” said the man, and the wheels were set in motion for a fateful meeting later that evening. After being ushered into a vacant room at the venue, the man showered and was relaxing on the bed when the door swung open and his own wife entered the room. The couple reportedly froze for several moments before the wife reacted first, emitting a shrill scream and taking off her 12-inch heel and hurling it at her husband’s rapidly-deflating kukubird.
The man angrily stormed out of the room and tried to exit the venue, where he was detained by a large security guard for failing to settle his bill of SG$700. After a heated discussion with the brothel’s manager, he was able to negotiate a discount and only had to pay SG$250 for the brief encounter with his wife.

A technician who spent the night with a prostitute, then robbed her at knifepoint and molested her flatmate has been jailed for more than five years and sentenced to 16 strokes of the cane.
Cao Lichun, a Chinese national who turns 33 today, took $6,400 in cash, a $2,000 designer watch and a mobile phone from the two women at their rented apartment in Dalvey Road.
A district court heard that Cao went to see the prostitute in the early hours of Dec 1, 2013, after exchanging messages.
Her flatmate was present when he arrived.
Both women – also Chinese nationals – cannot be named to protect their identities.
Cao had sex and paid the prostitute $200, then fell asleep in her bedroom.
At about 8.30am, he woke her and demanded money. She ignored him as she thought he was joking.
Cao then used a piece of wire to throttle her from behind. He also tied her wrists and ankles with cable ties.
He pocketed her $2,000 Titoni watch and mobile phone.
Cao also pointed a knife at her, threatened harm and asked where she kept her bag. She told him it was in the living room and he took $400 in cash from it.
Cao then went to the flatmate’s bedroom. When she answered the door, he grabbed her neck and pushed her onto the bed.
He used one hand to cover her mouth and the other to molest her.
Before leaving the apartment, Cao cut the cable ties off the prostitute’s hands and molested her friend again. He then returned $100 to the prostitute and $1,000 to her flatmate.

From tissue seller to masseur to ‘oldest professional?
At a Chinatown hawker centre, some women are selling packets of tissue paper as a cover for earning money from on-the-spot massages on beer drinkers.
They walk around the food centre on the pretext of selling tissue paper, reported Shin Min Daily News.
Hawkers and customers at the People’s Park Food Centre said that earlier this year, these women could be seen almost every night, going around the tables asking men if they would like a massage.
They usually targeted those drinking beer, said a drinks stall worker who wanted to be known only as Madam Chen.
Shown pictures of the masseuses, the 43-year-old, who is originally from China, told The New Paper she used to see the women approach her customers every night.
“I recognised one of the women very well, she is from Vietnam,” said Madam Chen.
The women would knead the men’s back and shoulders over their shirts, but Madam Chen had seen a number of men take off their shirts, sitting bare bodied on the hawker centre chairs during the massage.
She added that some of the women would even sit down with their customers for drinks after the massage.

Japan’s gift to Filipino prostitutes is arrested for child pornography
Japan teacher who paid for sex with 12,000 women convicted over naked child photographs
A former school headteacher, who reportedly paid for sex with 12,000 women in the Philippines, has been convicted in Japan for taking photos of naked Filipino girls.
The Yokohama District Court sentenced Yuhei Takashima, 65, to two years in prison with the term suspended for four years, a spokesman told AFP.
Takashima, who reportedly had sex with girls as young as 14, escaped prison with a promise not to offend again.
Quoting the verdict, Japan’s Jiji Press said the girls pictured were “aged between 12 and 14” and were photographed at a hotel in the Philippines about two years ago.
According to local media, Takashima had meticulously catalogued nearly 150,000 photographs of his sexual encounters over a 27-year period in around 400 separate albums.
Takashima was quoted as having said in court that he “has a habit of collecting things” and wanted “to keep the memories”.
The former middle-school principal started paying for sex when he was dispatched to a Japanese school in Manila in 1988.
He later went on three sex tours a year to the country, making a total of 65 visits.
During that time, he had sex with more than 12,000 women, with Nippon TV saying they were aged between 14 and 70.

Man offered threesome at massage parlour — and pays $400 to get away
A man has claimed that he had to pay a total of $400 in order to break away from two masseuses who were insistent on having a threesome with him, Lianhe Wanbao reported.
The man, who declined to be named, said that the incident happened last month when he and his girlfriend visited a massage parlour along South Bridge Road.
The couple, who are in their 30s, had each chosen a one-hour session that cost $50. They were then brought to separate rooms on different levels – the man went to the third floor, while his girlfriend went to the second.
The man told Wanbao that after about 15 minutes into his massage session, his masseuse, who was wearing a tight low-cut top and miniskirt, asked him whether he wanted to “overtime”.
After he rejected the offer, he claimed that the masseuse asked him if he wanted a “special service”. That was when he wanted to leave, but he said that the masseuse wouldn’t let him wear his clothes.
To get away, he agreed to an additional half an hour of massage. The masseuse then brought her colleague into the room, and both of them started suggesting a threesome, the man claimed.
He said that he eventually paid $400 for his massage session, the additional time and “other expenses”. He has since notified the police and Ministry of Manpower regarding the incident.

24-hr massage parlour in Bukit Batok reportedly revealed to be front for ‘special services’ http://goo.gl/H3nnBO
Tuesday, Dec 15, 2015
A 24-hour massage parlour in Bukit Batok has been revealed to be a front, with the female masseuses offering “special services” to customers.
The massage parlour, which opened at a Bukit Batok shophouse about six months ago, provides foot massages and full-body massages, Lianhe Wanbao reported.
One woman, an assistant at a nearby shop, said that about five or six female masseuses worked at the parlour. The woman all seemed to be in their 20s and 30s, and spoke with Chinese accents.
She told Lianhe Wanbao that although the massage parlour was open 24 hours, there would usually only be a steady stream of customers from the afternoon onwards.
“The customers are mostly male. Some enter from the front, while others enter from the back door.
To find out the truth, a reporter with the Chinese evening daily visited the massage parlour pretending to be a customer.
The reporter found out from one of the masseuses that besides massage services, three other “special services” are also provided, with one of the services reserved for regulars only.
Customers who had made reservations would immediately be ushered into the shower once they went into the rooms. The reporter chose the one-hour massage package.
The first 45 minutes proceeded like a typical massage session. But at the end of the session, the masseuse told him: “We can’t earn much if you don’t take up the extra services.”
Temporarily unable to practise their profession.

NO, THEY WON’T BE SERVICING ‘CLIENTS’ THIS TIME ROUND….
Prostitution is legal in NZ but workers have to be citizens. Can’t be on tourist or work visa.
Under the Prostitution Reform Act 2003, only New Zealand citizens and residents can work in the sex industry.
Foreign prostitutes work here to make money but enter as tourists
“In recent years there has been a steady increase in sex workers from a number of countries travelling to New Zealand to work in the local sex industry,” the police summary of facts said.
Last year, 97 people were stopped from boarding flights or entering New Zealand because they were suspected of travelling to work in the sex industry, up from 67 in 2013, according to figures released by Immigration New Zealand.
In the past three years, 42 foreign nationals have been found illegally working in the sex industry by Immigration New Zealand.
Twenty-five came on visitors’ visas, eight on student visas, seven on work visas and two were overstayers.
Immigration adviser Tuariki Delamere, who had represented more than 30 foreign sex workers on immigration matters, believed the actual number of illegal prostitutes was much higher.
“Immigration’s figures are only of those detected, but my guess is the numbers are possibly 10 times higher,” he said.

But when night falls, the 300m stretch of Rail Corridor is frequented by another type of lovers – those in search of fast love and illegal nicotine kicks.
A two-day investigation by The New Paper revealed that the vicinity of the nature trail is being used by an outdoor prostitution ring and contraband cigarette peddlers.
We were first told about the activities by a jogger who declined to be named.

France lawmakers debate punishing prostitutes or clients
Sexual work union (STRAS) members hold placards as they gather to protest against a plan to penalise the clients of prostitution, on March 28, 2015 in Paris. French senators will on Monday, March 30, debate whether the law should punish prostitutes or their clients, as France resumes a divisive discussion on how to crack down on the world’s oldest profession. — PHOTO: AFP – See more at: http://www.straitstimes.com/news/world/europe/story/france-lawmakers-debate-punishing-prostitutes-or-clients-20150330#sthash.GWQpmIIY.o9n1DgeV.dpuf
PARIS (AFP) – French senators will on Monday debate whether the law should punish prostitutes or their clients, as France resumes a divisive discussion on how to crack down on the world’s oldest profession.
The proposed law completely revises a bill passed by France’s lower house in 2013 that never took effect.
That bill would have repealed a 2003 law that made offering sex for sale a crime and would have instead pushed the onus on to clients, making them subject to a fine.
The draft legislation passed by the lower house, the National Assembly, two years ago made clients of prostitutes liable for a fine of 1,500 euros (S$2,240) for a first offence and more than double that for subsequent breaches.

Macau police break up prostitution ring, arrest 42
HONG KONG: Police in Macau, the world’s biggest gambling hub, have broken up a prostitution ring and arrested 42 mainland Chinese in the second major crackdown since Chinese President Xi Jinping visited the southern Chinese territory at the end of last year.
Macau, the only place in China where citizens can legally gamble in casinos, has been reeling from the impact of a corruption crackdown by Xi. Gaming revenue growth has plunged for nine straight months and is set to drop 40 percent in March.
Yu Zhihua, a spokesman for the Macau Public Security Police, told Reuters on Wednesday all those arrested were from the mainland, with the youngest aged 17.
The prostitution ring shut down on Tuesday had recruited women from the mainland through the use of mobile telephone applications. The syndicate was operating in a Macau hotel but Yu was not permitted to give the name.

Greenburgh Introduces Law That Strengthens Massage Parlor Regulations
GREENBURGH, N.Y. — A proposal was introduced Tuesday to require massage parlors to apply for licenses and special use permits in the Town of Greenburgh, subjecting them to closer oversight by police.
The proposal is being made as new massage parlors opened up during the past week along Central Avenue in the Edgemont section of town.
During a special meeting of the Greenburgh town board on Tuesday, resident David DePietto told town council members, “We don’t have time. We are not going to be patient. I think your actions should speak as loud as your words. We’re going to hold you to it.”
Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner said, “We have a lot of young women who are being sexually abused. I feel there is an urgency.”
Feiner said the new legislation “provides the police with the tools to close down facilities that are operating illegally.”
Greenburgh: Some massage parlors front for prostitution
