It showed the types of massage available and their respective prices. Patrons at this clinic are told to remove all their clothing for the massage. In contrast, patrons are told to change into shorts provided by the establishments at legitimate spas. No more than 10 minutes into the massage, the therapist offered sex for money which was immediately declined. She was unaware that the conversation was being recorded.
