IDs Required for Massage

0814_SCENE In Brief_IDs Required for MassageFollowing the crackdown earlier this year on Dongguan’s noticeable sex trade, the Guangdong government has now drafted its first regulations for the management of massage parlors with strict stipulations for the industry. If the draft is approved, customers would be required to register with identification during 2 to 8 a.m. visits; shower and sauna rooms will no longer be allowed inside massage rooms; locks would be restricted; and lights would have to stay on. The regulations were posted on the official website of the Legislative Affairs Office of the Guangdong Government to gather comments and opinions for a month and will be taken down on August 6.
