A remedial massage centre that promotes the bra sizes of all of its staff has challenged the City of Sydney to prove it is operating as an illegal brothel.
Central Station Massage, in Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills, showcases on its website “four cute Asian girls” daily, which on Saturday included workers described as “slender 34A, milky skin” and “curvy 35D and tanned”.
The shop’s website also includes links to a second massage centre in nearby Broadway where the same rostered girls “dress sexy” in “nurse, maid, stockings and school uniforms … to satisfy your fantasies with a “happy ending”.
Yet the council now finds itself in the position of having to fight the owners in the Land and Environment Court on March 1 after an order to “cease unauthorised use”, was rejected and appealed.
News of the stand-off follows a Fairfax Media investigation last week which revealed how an elusive Sydney madam, Suki Wu, had been evading authorities by setting up illegal pop-up vice dens in apartment buildings, under the cloak of therapeutic massage centres.
Her latest brazen venture, Town Hall Massage, had set up shop inside the foyer of Maestri Towers in Kent Street – one of Sydney’s largest residential buildings
Extensive ground-floor security footage showed that during one typical day at the parlour this month, five female workers provided services to 59 male clients, over an 11-hour shift.
