Town Square

Massage parlors

Original post made by Map on Jul 11, 2013

Just drove thru the rose pavilion shopping center and spotted a new massage parlor with the doors and windows covered with heavy material, that makes 3 massage parlors in that complex, what's going on with the landlords, is it that hard to find a tenant?? Hopefully PPD is going to start cracking down on these places before we have one on every corner, something shady going on in there!! Wake up Pleasanton things are changing around here.

I do not know what type of massages are being given but it should be legal as are marijuana use, same sex marriage, so why not prostitution if that is what is going on there. I see nothing wrong in a state where everything goes and should.

sounds like a good ole case of supply and demand. Pleasanton residents like their massages.

Lighten up people...lets not start burying a business without knowing ANYTHING about it..everything isn't shady and underhanded. I have gone to that new massage parlor on more than one occasion..very professional and really nice Asian owners. the reason there is multiple businesses there in that shopping center is because it has become an Asian gathering place..Ranch 99 is in there as well as a coupl eof Asian restaurants so naturally, there is a larger community to draw upon there for customers. Its a good business model and I have NEVER seen anything slightly "underhanded" about the busoiness. Please don't just hang a new business owner before giving them a chance.

Glad the wooden sign post springing out of the trunk of a car, as advertisement, hasn't been seen for awhile.... Hope it stays that way. Otherwise there will be 3 post signs growing like a line of trees out of car trunks saying "Massage" ugh that would be unreal.

Find out where the folks who give the actual massages are from. Are they US citizens? How long have they been in Ca? Where did they last work? Salary? Do the employees receive benefits? What specifically.

be aware, careful, enjoy!

There's one hidden in a shopping center on the corner of Santa Rita and Stoneridge drive that is open vet late at night. Its not far from my home and we are all unhappy about what it appears is going on. Let's just say that Massage Envy, what I believe to be a credible salon, keeps normal business hours and doesn't have there neon "OPEN" sign lit until midnight or after. I don't know why they haven't been shut down.

Complain to the landlords and their investors/ banks financing them. Most banks will not appreciate the notoriety of such a tenant occupying their collateral and are probably unaware that such a tenant has moved in.

Ah, all the components that go into our typical PW posts. Moral sanctimony, quick to label all non-whites as illegals, fear of sex, revealing a deep-seated sexual repression in one's own life. Keep at it all you fine conservative Plutonians!

Artlover1....wow...you complain and complain..then when the cops arrest the operators you complain about that...your hilarious. Perhaps you should relax and go get a massage.

I hope these massage places they know they are can not stay in business. There are some really nice wellnes salons. Like Zen wellnes.if you want you know what, go to Nevada. It is o.k. there.

The giveaway on these places is to watch a "customer" go inside and then about 10 minutes later a car will pull up and drop off a " masseuse"---you non-believers can talk to PPD or the sheriffs dept. they know this is going on but hard to stop them! Wake up people, keep looking the other way and these places will be everywhere

Neon Massage signs on first street make it look like Prostitution Disneyland.
This is Interesting. While I think Prostitution should be legal and regulated the neon signs on First street are out of control.

Pleasanton has a high level of activity on this massage parlor rating website. The website, rubmaps.com, lists local massage parlors along with menus of sexual services the site says are provided in addition to massages by some of the masseuses.

Please explain why you believe that "prostitution should be legal".

PROSTITUTION RESEARCH AND EDUCATION IS ONLINE...check it out.

Why from Birdland has explained it perfectly. We continue to receive exactly what we vote for.

Pleasanton has a long history of houses of ill-repute. According to some of the old timers I spoke with, the volume of activity picked up with the summer Alameda County horse races way back-when.
