I noticed this evening an Ad in a newspaper that is part of a newsgroup that stopped/banned all Escorts/Massage Parlour ads over 2 years ago as part of the advice/pressure from HH.

It reads "Thai theraputic massage" and gives a mobile number, nothing else.....this could be a genuine, qualified massuese offering nothing more and nothing less.

Any thoughts?

Most other trades in the paper have a box with details of their skills/qualifications etc.

Wouldn't really be fair to list this if other 'Massage' or 'Escort' services are prohibited.

Not saying I disagree with the ad etc just perhaps an incongruous policy?

i imagine the advertiser has provided proof of a qualification of some sort

perhaps escorts should train for a qualification which would then allow them to advertise as masseuses

I looked into this but found I have to spend a year at 3 hours a week studying physiology. Fair enough but I've read enough sports science, fitness stuff plus the odd fitness qual to already have a grip on the subject. Besides spending 2 years getting the qualification is a long time in this business.

would you be able to advertise as a personal fitness instructor? i.e.

1 on 1 personal fitness tuition by trained young lady

I have a very specific qualification within the fitness arena. Trouble is how would I deal with genuine enquiries?

So take said client out to the gym?That's what I mean. I have hardly had any enquiries for massage in the years I've been Escorting so hardly makes sense to take the qualification.

Suppose I could do then again I'm hoping to complete another qualification I've been following in a field I'd like to go into.

My point however isn't this - it's about the advertising rules, regulations and policies that could be being breached here.

why are you worried about this, it isn't your responsibility is it ?

maybe send in an advert of your own, two words to describe your service and a phone number, see what happens

i think it used to be that newspapers always required sight of qualifications before they would run a massage advert, this may have relaxed in recent years, but i'm sure the future will see them being far more careful.

You can get a massage qualification over 2/3 days that is recognised for insurance purposes so I'm sure it would cover you for advertising. PM me for detail if you like. Theres nothing wrong in catering for men only and if you do get a straight you could charge him for the hour and still make a bit of money without even taking your knickers off !!

I spend some of the year at my Cottage in West Wales and enjoy visiting Parlours around Swansea, I have been suprised that the local newspaper, South Wales Evening Post doesn't now print Telephone numbers of Massage Parlours in their "Health Clubs" section, instead you have to provide your mobile phone number (traceable by "Big Brother") they will then text back the details of the Ad ??? Some Parlours do not now adveritise there.

As a personal choice I will not be visiting any Parlours in the future, simply because of the new law and the Strict Liability tag, which will be cynically abused by the police by order of the Government to end organised prostitution, a bleak future for the estimated 1 in 10 who punt, proabably 2,000,000 to 3,000,000 of the male population. Labour may go on May 6th, but the damage is done.

Long ago The Telegraph used to have small ads on an inside page (right alongside the Court Notices and family announcements). There were always 3 or 4 advertising"Colonic Irrigation" services, we Lower 6th boys were wondering just what problems the middle classes of St John's Wood & Maida Vale suffered. Then our man about town History teacher explained.

I have a copy of last Saturday's South Wales Evening Post (Swansea Final edition) advertised as Wales' largest selling newspaper.

I find it difficult to believe that's true (that they are the largest etc.)!

The adverts for the parlours usually say "qualified" too, although they don't specify in what.

It is the largest selling paper in Wales. The second is the South Wales Echo.

Bunnies, Health Studio and Chantells say "Qualified" in the small print - if you look closely.
