Massage Parlors are Strictly Regulated against Sexually Oriented Business Code Violations
Owners of massage parlors frequently come under the watchful eye of law enforcement who is hoping to catch them in a violation and shut them down. Some owners have been accused of running illegal prostitution operations. It is not uncommon for many individuals to link the activity of massage with illicit sex for sale and this is certainly true for law enforcement operations. There are police task forces that are concerned with arresting and charging those who are engaged in illegal activities in massage parlors, and they use a variety of tactics to determine if the law is being violated, most often sting operations.
These sting operations are carried out by vice officers in order to set up a circumstance under which an employee at the massage parlor can be led into agreeing to a sexual act in exchange for payment. The vice officer tries to “seal the deal” and request a sex act. This form of sting operation can often be defended successfully as entrapment.
