Kuwaiti police stormed a suspected apartment run by four Chinese women as a massage centre and found that it was equipped with hidden cameras filming male customers for sale online, a newspaper reported on Monday.
Police said they decided to raid the apartment after noticing that customers must fill forms containing 14 questions, the last of which made them even more suspicious.
“The last question says ‘do you want to have only a massage or something else’,” a police spokesman said, quoted by Al Anba Arabic language daily.
He said police raiding the place in Kuwait City found film processing equipment at a next door apartment, also run by the Chinese.
“We found that all the customers who have a massage at the first apartment are screened alive in the other flat, where the films are then processed and sold online,” the spokesman said without making clear if the ring was involved in vice.
Spas doing away with cream cheese massage
Dodgy Malaysian "spas" are dispensing with the massage oil in favour of cream cheese in a new offering in the country's massage industry, a report said.
The weekend edition of the Malay-language Harian Metro said reporters from the tabloid discovered that some spas near the capital Kuala Lumpur were offering customers the option of being smeared with cream cheese.
In a follow-up report on Monday, Harian Metro quoted an official in the Kuala Lumpur suburb Subang Jaya, where a spa was reportedly offering the cheese treatment, as saying massage parlours would face stern action if found to be offering "irresponsible activities".
"This activity is a serious disease in today's society," said Subang Jaya town council official Azfarizal Abdul Rashid. Agencies
