Men go to massage parlors because the sexual activity is guaranteed if you have the money, whereas a "relationship" the sexual activity isn't guaranteed even if gifts, dinners, movies, trips, etc. are given. Also, a relationship consists of being humiliated and being dragged around at the man's expense.

I've never been to one of these places, they are wrong, but I could see why someone would want to go there.

The only difference between prostitution and a man and woman living together is cash exchange hands in the former and gifts are exchanged in the latter. That's all.

Yeah, what's up with THAT??
The guy bought the girl a car, paid her rent -- and then the owner scams him for $48,000?? A whole BUNCH of them involved in this ... and whoever said the owner is a "hottie" is NUTS. She looks like Roseanne Barr on a BAD DAY ... and not the "new" Roseanne, but the "old" Roseanne.

Three Erie women arrested in fake kidnapping plot
By DAVID BRUCE

Three women -- one of them the owner of an Erie massage parlor -- used a kidnapping hoax to bilk an Erie man out of $48,000, Erie police said Friday.

The women told a 66-year-old customer of Esquire II Massage, 1901 W. 26th St., that an employee the man favored had been kidnapped, police said.

The employee -- Shelly Hanner, 22 -- had established a personal relationship with the man, police said.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Hanner, police said. She is being charged with theft by deception.

Police also charged Monica Abbate, 48; Danielle Vantassell, 25; and Elizabeth Barnard, 26; all of Erie. Police said Abbate owns Esquire II massage parlor.

The women were arraigned Wednesday before Erie 3rd Ward District Judge Tom Carney. They were charged with theft by deception and receiving stolen property.

Bond was set at 10 percent of $25,000. All three women have posted it and been released, police said.

The victim told police that Abbate called him Monday and asked him to come to the massage parlor. Once he was there, police said, the telephone rang. Abbate told the man that the caller had said Hanner was being held hostage, Erie police Lt. Kirk Werner said.

"He was told $100,000 had to be paid, or else the girl would get hurt," Werner said.

The man told police he gave Abbate $48,000.

She called him later, saying she had seen Hanner and another of the massage parlor's employees, Werner said. She told the man that both had been beaten and that more money was needed, Werner said.

The man went back to the massage parlor. He saw the second woman, who did not appear to be injured, Werner said.

"She didn't have a mark on her," Werner said of the man's account. "That's when he became suspicious and came to us."

Abbate has been accused before of taking money illegally from a customer, Werner said. She was sentenced to a year of probation in 2008 after she pleaded no contest to extorting more than $14,000 from a Cambridge Township man who had visited the massage parlor.

She needs to find a good stylist. That hideous hairdo! In fact, NONE of them are going to be on the cover of Vogue.

Well, I'm shocked. Who would have thought that a "happy ending" massage parlor could be involved in any type of criminal activity?

I agree. I don't know what kind of women you are getting into relationships, but I have never had one like that either.

Decided to do some investigating. Nice place, nice area of Erie. Met Alex, Faye and a black girl whos name escapes me. All very beautiful. Alex is gourgous but was taken by the gentleman in front of me, talked to her after my massage.
If you are looking for full service or even 1/2 service, It is hard to get here. If your looking for a very pretty girl, stimulating conversation and a hand release at an exorbinate price, esquire is your place.
Also Ed does frequent the place according to one of the girls. Also frequented by some corporate bigwigs that have chain stores in Erie.
My Advice, if you are going to frequent this type of place, Totally You is a better deal and more likely to get what you want. Just call ahead. Jockey is a dump as is Katies. Satin is ok but last time I was there (3-4 years ago) Was very unhappy.
And to let you know, a respectable lady usually costs over $1,000 before you get laid. Plus they can be hard to get rid of once you do. A lot of the time you are better off just paying the $150 it takes in Erie to boff the pretty prostitute at a massage parlor.
