NO AT­TEMPT TO HIDE WHAT’S ON OF­FER

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A cou­ple of calls to the num­bers listed and it is clear the ser­vices be­ing of­fered are not sim­ply mas­sages . One man who an­swered a call from 7DAYS said: “She can come for one hour, two hours, three hours or full night. You have to book the ho­tel and call again and tell me the ad­dress.” He made it clear sex­ual ser­vices were be­ing of­fered. Another par­lour boasted of their range of na­tion­al­i­ties. A man on the phone said: “We have dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties - Viet­namese, Ja­panese, Chinese, Malaysia and Sin­ga­pore. Which one do you want?” The link be­tween many par­lours and the sex trade is no se­cret. Last sum­mer, po­lice were called to a fight at a beauty par­lour in Mu­raqqa­bat to find it was a gay brothel. An Emi­rati man, 23, tried to at­tack a Thai man with a cleaver. And in 2012, 7DAYS re­ported how a Filip­ina told a court she was res­cued from a pros­ti­tu­tion and traf­fick­ing gang op­er­at­ing out of a mas­sage par­lour in Bur Dubai. “They were dis­tribut­ing cards that of­fered mas­sage ser­vices,” she said at the time. “I was made to work as a pros­ti­tute for a month un­til I es­caped.”
