Q: I've seen the pink light and the sofa girls in every massage parlor in my area.wtf?

I really want to try out acupuncture but i'm scared they might think I want sex or something. The massage parlours nearby all have girls sitting on sofas, watching tv. I don't want to get caught up in some prostitution thing and get locked up. Or am I just being paranoid? What to do?

You're being a little paranoid because, at worse, they'll just 'propose' you the happy ending, the one that's not officially on the menu. But if you're that scared, just go on and try Dr Paul, he speaks English and he's great! He's located in the FX Hotel in Maizidian...

The places with the lights and girls watching TV are only for happy endings.  That's what they mean by "mah-sah-gee".  I doubt any of those girls know how to give a massage to begin with.

Anybody ever see those barber shops stocked with a bevy of long legged beauties? There are no customers in the chairs and no hair on the floor. Smile

When I find those I mark them on my pocket map...you know, just in case anyones wants to know! Smile

If you want to try out acupuncture, you should be able to find a very legitimate TCM hospital around town. Take a translator!

 

OTOH, if you want to come down to Hangzhou, I've got a box of Seirin's (Japanese - about the best quality needles you can buy! I'm not happy with most of the Chinese brand needles) sitting around not doing a lot - different sizes as well, depending on where I'm putting them.

They do a lot more than offer just happy endings.  If they offer you "over hard or over soft", choose the hard option.  And if you have the cash, find a place that has the "emporer package".  The place near me has that package.  Last time it was twin 19 year olds for 8 hours solid.

And for the record, we did nothing but play mahjong and drink tea for all 8 hours.  ;)

Well you see Chinese men have five thousand years history and unlike foreign men they are ethical and value family and marriage, so there are whore houses on every street in China.

I can list what not to do: do not look in their eyes, be careful with movement they are attracted to anything that moves that they can view nearby, don't overstay your welcome if you go there, if they ask for your number give them your friends, if they offer you a drink throw it in the bushes nearby don't drink it, if there is more than 2 at a time get out as quickly as possible as you wouldn't want to be gang banged.

Re the above, 99Silva, particularly true.  Don't accept a drink or an opened beer, glass of water, etc,. etc., from the ladies if you really must visit one of these unique barbershops.  One of the foreigns in the city where I lived "visited" one of these shops and the next thing we all knew was that the police found him passed out and apparently drugged in a gutter in the worst part of the city.  Wallet was gone, keys were gone, etc., and all the rest.  Additionally, an effort was made to tamper with his bank card and when he was finally delivered home and the door was opened by the landlord with a second set of keys, the apartment had already been "visited".  His mind had been fogged enough that he couldn't even accurately remember where he had been and in any case, the scandal was so great on a small scale that Chinese-style, his employer immediately covered it up.  He didn't finish his contract as he was let go at the term break.

You are seriously naive, stupid or have lived under a rock, you think you are going to get acupuncture in a pink room? By a girl sitting on a sofa. The idea is you stick things into them.

That's impossible. Chinese people are VERY traditional and NOT open like other cultures. There's no sex in China except on the wedding day between bridge & groom, where they both lose their virginity.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
