But the upscale Palos Verdes Peninsula town has revoked the operating license of a spa amid allegations of prostitution. Crystal Spa bills itself as offering "The Most Enjoyable Asian Massage in Town," reports the Daily Breeze's Larry Altman: "City Manager Doug Prichard said the decision to pull a business' license is 'very rare' for the city. 'This is only the second one I've done in 25 years here,' he said."

That's just great...Now where are the fine citizens of Rolling Hills Estates going to obtain a Happy Ending after a long day at the factory...

"The Most Enjoyable Asian Massage"-sounds like a porn title?

These lowlifes are the ones tarnishing the good image of massage parlors. A massage parlor is a place of relaxation and stress release. So to all massage regulars out there, please always enjoy a good massage.
