Asian Woman Massaging
MASON CITY – A now-defunct prostitution ring was delivering some scintillating services, a former client tells NIT.
A Mason City man tells NIT that he visited the Asian Body Works, located at 546 East State Street, the day before police raided the joint on February 24. One woman, Suling Lu, age 48 of Mason City, was arrested on a charge of prostitution, an aggravated misdemeanor. She awaits a March 11 hearing. Police haven’t released any details on the actual services the alleged prostitution business was providing, nor the names of any other persons connected with providing services there – or paying for them.
However, today, a Mason City man tells NIT that he actually went to the Asian Body Works for a massage – and got a lot more than he bargained for.
According to this man, he was driving by the Asian Body Works at about 1 PM February 23 and remembered that he has a rib he describes that “keeps poking out” and thought a deep massage would help with the pain. At 1 PM that day, he went to the front door and went inside. A bell on the front door chimed as the door opened, and an Asian woman appeared. She was mid-20’s in age and wearing black yoga pants. He tells NIT that he explained to the woman that he would like a massage, who then told him she did not speak English. As he explains to NIT, he pointed to a clock on the wall and told the woman he’d come back at 3 PM for a massage.
The man returned at 3PM and again walked in the front door. The same woman instantly appeared. She demanded $60 up front, which he paid. She then led him straight back to a room that was almost completely dark. She told him to strip down. He tells NIT he took off everything except his boxers and laid face-down on a massage table that was waiting.
“Worst massage of my life, ” the man tells NIT. “She sprayed water or something like that on my back and barely rubbed me at all. Didn’t do a dam thing for my ribs.”
There was soft music playing, which he could only describe as “new age, meditation”.
The room remained pitch dark or close to it. He says the woman “kept leaving the room, over and over, then she’d come back. I could hear voices. I have no idea who she was talking to.”
As the massage wore on, she asked him to turn over and lay on his back. This is where things “got weird”.
“She hopped up on the table and perched herself directly above me, and slowly lowered her (private area) above my face, ” the Mason City man explained. He claims she stopped a few inches above his face. “I thought to myself, this is not what I signed up for.”
He couldn’t accurately describe her state of dress when this took place, he says, because it was so dark in the room.
The man says she then took a white towel, rolled it up, reached into his waistband, “and put it inside my boxers, ” surrounding his private area.
