Hands on services

Cracking piece in the Kipp Report today, questioning whether Gulf News has been running ads for massage parlours with benefits. Interesting to see German girls are charged at a premium; they must have particularly good hands.

Has anyone else noticed adverts like this in UAE publications?

For what it's worth, I think the Kipp Report is pretty good.

From the article:

"They want to emulate The New York Times’s editorial credibility. We’re confident that is where they are heading.”


Thanks for my first smile of the day!

Sorry, I'm a cretin - the comment about the New York Times should of course be under the Khaleej times piece.

Where have you been? Every classified section in the Gulf, let alone Dubai, carries adverts for massge joints offering "full body relaxation for men". Use your imagination to fill in the details. This is not even news.

Is there any way to contact the owners who post to this blog ?
an E-mail id perhaps ?

500 Dhs to have some Bavarian scrub you down and an extra 200 for a 'happy finish'? You're right, it's bloody criminal.

dubai is an utter fucking shitpit - anyone who tries to tell you different is either a moron or has been bought off. The place should be boycotted.

I see Dave's back...

How are you, you drunken, moaning cockney fuckwit? Still think you're the Lord God Almighty of publishing, when actually you're drunken never-was who couldn't hack Dubai or hold a job down?

Glad you could make it back, we've all missed you so much.

OMG - would the fact the moderator thinks the Kipp Report "is actually pretty good" have anything to do with the fact he works for the website? Talk about a lack of transparency..and yes, I bet you don't publish this.
