How to Avoid Vegas Massage Parlor Clip Joints
Vegas massage parlors are different from massage parlors in other cities because of the large tourist scene here and because massages with full sexual services are available legally at the local brothels.
That makes for unique opportunities and unique problems. While there are 50-60 honest massage parlors here that are frequented by locals, there are at least a dozen massage parlors in the city that specialize in ripping off tourists.
Here are some quick tips on what to expect at Vegas massage parlors and on how you can avoid the places that specialize in skinning tourists.
Vegas Massage Prices
The standard cost is usually $60 up front, but can range from $50 – $70, which covers a one-hour massage (no extras). A hand job is usually an extra $60-$70 but in an honest place this will not be offered up front. If you find yourself being quoted prices higher than $70 up front— like hundreds of dollars—get out fast. That’s a tourist clip joint.
Cabbie Clip Joints
Don’t ask a cabbie for advice, or allow a cabbie to persuade you to go to his “favorite place.” Vegas cabbies get a big head fee ($100 to $200) to deliver customers to Vegas massage parlor clip joints (places where they charge a customer $500 by implying he’ll get sex with his massage, but don’t deliver; when the customer complains, security boots him).
Massage parlor clip joints in Vegas are most likely to be located on Industrial Rd, Western Ave, and Highland Dr., Vegas’s “Little Amsterdam” area, or near by. Honest massage parlors are more likely to be located a few blocks away from the Strip on Spring Mountain Rd, Sahara Ave, and other places tourists seldom venture.
The Way It Works at Vegas Massage Parlors
If the person at the front desk starts asking if you want “full service,” or implies that a much more satisfying experience is available (wink wink), or even starts blatantly offering sexual services, get out. This is not the way honest massage parlors work in Vegas, even when hand jobs are available at the establishment.
At an honest massage parlor, you’ll either be offered a hand job or you won’t during the actual massage. You have to be a regular to get more services than that.
Honest massage parlors in Vegas feature actual skilled masseuses, mostly attractive to ordinary-looking Chinese women in their 30s and 40s who don’t speak much English. Vegas locals of all ages and all walks of life go to them strictly for therapeutic massage.
That means if you try to talk sex at the front desk, the other locals in the room will cringe and the person at the desk will suspect you’re a vice cop. That’s a great way to ruin your opportunities at the establishment.
For Guaranteed Sex with Your Massage
If what you are really looking for is a guaranteed hand job to full sexual experience with a hot young girl, go to one of the legal brothels in Pahrump, an hour’s drive from Las Vegas.
You can select the girl of your choice out of the line-up, and you can get a massage with a basic happy ending (hand job) there for close to the house minimum, which means roughly the same as you’d pay at a Vegas massage parlor. Unlike most Vegas massage parlors, the best brothels will have an excellent selection of beautiful women to choose from.
Nuru Massage and Other Happy Endings
A blow job, full intercourse, or a nuru massage, in which the girl of your choice oils up and slides all over you, will cost more. See our information on brothel prices and negotiations here.
Erotic massage is available at Alien Cathouse (brothel review/brothel website), Love Ranch Vegas (brothel review /(brothel website), and Sheri’s Ranch (brothel review/ brothel website). Nuru massage is available at Sheri’s Ranch.
These local brothels all provide free round-trip limo service to their establishments 24/7/365. They usually need about an hour’s notice to pick you up.
