If you don't have a Massage lic. and call it a massage it's a felony. Call it a body rub and that's OK. Sure is a good use of police resources.

How many places expect a tip: lets see hair salons,restaurants,taxi rides, etc. Is that all an offer of prostitution too. Then the police get upset that the court & DA give them a plea deal - actually they are costing this business attorney fees and the fines basically for doing a lot less than they are charged with, probably nothing really illegal.
