(My San Antonio)   Police raid candle store after neighbors noticed that all the customers were male, and the staff locked the door after customers entered. Hey, what's wrong with a man wanting a little privacy when candle-shopping?   (mysanantonio.com) divider line 28

"Normal" men don't willingly go to candle stores.  Poor choice of a front if you ask me.

Come to the candle store to dip your wick. It's obvious once you think about it.

Five years for being the middle man in sex selling is sad.

I'll sleep so much better tonight knowing that the candle sex store has finally been busted.

/hot wax

///ow!

I could wax poetic about the wick'ed deeds done behind closed doors.  I'm glad all this could be brought to light.  Murder, assault, and writing bad checks don't hold a candle to this heinous crime.

Wax off.

Depending on what I'm doing with the candle I usually like having an audience rather than privacy.

Candy store, not Candle.

Won't somebody think of the children???

"in a shopping center that also included a magic shop, a children's hair salon and a day care "

Yep they went there.

Must have been a strip mall.

Colonel Mustard, in the strip mall, with the candle stick.

If the prostitutes are there willingly I don't have a problem with this.

Business in the front, party in the back.

I doubt anyone will ever convince me prostitution is bad. As long as the girls are 18+, there willingly, are protected, and recieve a decent wage, who gives a crap?

I agree, but that's a lot of ifs.

Boo_Guy: Five years for being the middle man in sex selling is sad.


It was originally going to be 10 years, for essentially a victim less crime. People get 10 years for armed robbery.

But yeah, a candle store is a little too conspicuous for guys to come in and out of, no pun intended. An Abercrombie and Fitch store would be much more feasible. Loud dipshiat music, dark lighting, Axe body spray choking everyone to death and a douchebag clientele walking in and out. That would be ideal.

Like my grandmother used to say, "Pimpin' ain't easy".

Storefronts are usually a poor cover for hiding prostitution. I was in a city that was trying to revitalize their downtown, so they had just refurbished an old factory and turned it into a bunch of new businesses. In the process of checking out their new artisan bakery and wood oven pizza joint, I see one business claiming it is an 'exclusive club for high rollers'. Windows blacked out, door was locked. I thought 'What kind of legit business would want to limit the number of customers they get?'

Could you have been more obvious guys? Of course the cops raided them before they could open.

At least they tried to fool people. A new business just opened up across the river from the Capitol complex. It's a "Holistic Massage Center" with a buzzer-operated front door that's open until 1AM seven days a week.

You're a genius, sir.

Ten years for a 22 y/o?  That sounds a little much

I'd actually knock it to 21+ or more.  At 18 girls aren't really ready in most cases to be on their own and aren't mentally mature enough to weigh the consequences of being a hooker.  At that age honestly the girls that would be in the job would be "well I can work at McDonald's and live in my car or...."  Make it 21+, require the businesses to use E-Verify to prove the men/women can legally work in the United States, let OSHA write up regulations, and have regular inspections and possibly a independent certifying body.  (Some businesses like hospitals are inspected regularly by a certifying agency to show they are doing everything up to industry standards: cleanliness, safety, training, record keeping, etc.)

Why didn't they just go the "massage parlor" route, that always works for a while. They busted one here a few years back  in Georgetown. One of the local news teams was camped out inside the day after the bust scaring the crap out of guys who didn't hear about it yet.

It beats staying home and waxing off.

Reminds me of the candle shop scene from Debbie Does Dallas.

McDonald's is more cruel, dehumanizing, and soul-crushing than prostitution, especially if you get off on your clients occasionally. They're both somewhat dangerous too, and fast food has its share of managers demanding "favors" from their employees, as well. The initial shock is no worse than a vapid Sweet Sixteener discovering that adulthood isn't handed to you on a silver platter.

Otherwise, yes, it should be as legal and regulated as any other business.

In the summer I worked at McDonald's, I can honestly say I didn't get off on any of my customers. Or on anything else in that place.
