Massage parlour near family homes offering hottest women sparks outrage
Locals have dubbed a massage parlour yards away from their homes a "long-standing joke" as it claims to offer the "hottest women in Leeds."
One spoke about how customers at Winstons Health & Leisure on Dewsbury Road in the Hunslet area of the city can stroll up to the entrance to a window to be buzzed in, go up the stairs where a group of women are waiting.
They would then pick a woman and accompany them into one of the ‘massage’ areas, Leeds Live reports.
Their website offers escort services and a range of massage therapies, which includes body-to-body massages and tantric massages – an erotic type of treatment.
There is a gallery of scantily clad women on the parlour's website.
The website, which boasts about having the “hottest women in Leeds”, states: “We help you meet women but we are not a sexual service. The fee is for companionship only and whatever takes place is between consenting adults."
Views on the massage parlour were fairly mixed. Some residents were supportive of it.
Other residents were against it however saying they did not want it yards away from where they raise their children.
Father-of-four Ilyas Quresha, 48, who has lived in the area for 12 years, said: “It’s not good because I’ve got a family, children, and I don’t want that near them. I never had a problem though.”

A mother-of-two, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “I’m not happy about the fact it is down the road at all. Who would want it near their home?!”
Bev Yates, 56, who has lived about 100 yards away from the massage parlour for four years, is neutral on the issue and spoke about the positives.
The mother-of-three, who works as a customer service operator, said: “It’s been famous for years, it’s a joke – it’s always been a long-standing joke.
“The police go there every now and again. It’s better than it’s going on in there rather than out on the streets or in a park. It doesn’t cause me any grief.”

Accountant Zahid Hamad, 57, who has worked in the area for 20 years, thinks people should be able to continue frequenting the parlour.
He said: “I’ve heard about it but I’ve never used it. It’s hearsay that it’s been going on for a long-time. I am not bothered about it. If somebody is doing it inside, let them!
“Nobody’s disturbing us, they can do whatever they like."
The company was approached by the Daily Star for a statement in response to the allegations made against it.

West Yorkshire Police were asked if the massage parlour had ever been investigated and if any action had ever been taken.
Inspector Lucy Leadbeater, who heads the Leeds South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “We continue to address any issues around sex work in line with national guidance which prioritises safeguarding and is primarily focused on targeting vulnerability and exploitation.
“We will always respond to any concerns raised by people in the community in relation to any issues of crime and disorder or anti-social behaviour linked to any premises, and will continue to work closely with our partner agencies using all available mechanisms to address issues where they do occur.”
