«Should I do that?»
On Tuesday, year-old Robert Aaron Long shot and killed eight people , six of whom were Asian women, at three Atlanta-based spas. Intertwined with that racism is the sexism and whorephobia Asian spa employees face. These murders raise important concerns about the ever-present danger and discrimination Asian massage-parlor workers face, especially from law enforcement that claims to protect them. The Cut spoke with Elene Lam, the executive director of Butterfly, a Toronto-based support network for Asian and migrant sex workers, about how the women she serves live in constant fear. How have the community you work with reacted to this horrific news? Our hearts are breaking.

Watch below:. Reader discretion is advised, some of these details are sexually explicit. A KRDO special report found that there are 36 massage parlors in the city that have recent reviews specifically outlining explicit sexual acts that can be purchased inside. So what do all of the reviews have in common? They make it clear the women inside these massage parlors are selling oral and vaginal sex.

She was 49, a recent immigrant and deeply in debt to a loan shark back home in China when she answered an employment ad three years ago that promised thousands of dollars a month, but offered no job description. She realized too late that she had been tricked into working at a massage parlor in Flushing, Queens, where besides kneading backs, she was expected to sexually service up to a dozen men a day. In strip malls across the country, neon signs and brightly colored placards promise hot stones, acupuncture and shiatsu with photos of women or couples receiving relaxing shoulder rubs. But a traditionally Asian form of therapeutic relaxation with deep roots in big-city Chinatowns has spun off a different kind of massage parlor that has little to do with traditional remedies.
In the 19th century, the term began to be used in English as a euphemism for a brothel. In the British Medical Association BMA inquired into the education and practice of massage practitioners in London, and found that prostitution was commonly associated with unskilled workers and debt, often working with forged qualifications. In response, legitimate massage workers formed the Society of Trained Masseuses now known as the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy , with an emphasis on high academic standards and a medical model for massage training. There is a grey area and ambiguity as to when an ordinary massage becomes sexual when it comes to individuals with sexual interests such as tripsophilia, tripsolagnophilia, partialism , autofetishism or organofact, who may feel that the massage of the entire body or any ordinary body parts unrelated to typical erogenous zones are associated with eroticism and sensuality.
