The year 2015 is not the best year for all the guys who are looking for the special girls fun in Shanghai. In 2014 the central government already successfully destroyed the mongerer paradise in Dongguan, but last year the main focus of the official anti crime activities has been corruption, but this year the focus changed to prostitution and gambling, and unfortunatelly also internet prostitution, so we are sure this year many escort agencies, forum pages and girls directories will be blocked in China or simply closed. The last years Shanghai keeped the paradise island with many sauna clubs, massage parlors and a still very open sex scene, but end of April the local police in Shanghai got the order for a 6 month concerted action project against prostitution in town with a special focus on internet prostitution.
Even you read about raids no more often, the risk is still very low. Every day there will be thousands of clubs and saunas service more than 100.000 customers and there will not get more than 5 customers a month really get in trouble because of prostitution cases, so getting insured in the taxi on the way to the sauna is nearly same risky than getting caught there, so basically no need to worry, but you should know about the risk and you should also know, how to solve the problem, if you will be involved in a raid.
The Chinese law is more tolerant for the girls and their customers and very strict for the managers and the people who organize and run the business. Even the waiters in a sauna can get a sentence to prison for 2 years!
In a normal rate at least 15 to 20 police guys will be involved, and you can be sure, they know exactly what they are looking for. They will arrive with some busses and than quickly enter the venue and "clean" room by room, so as more "barrier" will be between you and the entry, as better your chance to "escape". Mostly they do not care too much about customers who "leave", but you never can be sure. The managers will have the biggest problem, if they would be caught, so follow their advise is never a bad decision!
Even it is quite unlikely, you still should be prepared for this very unlikely case. So if you ever get "caught" by the police in a situation, that could get come out as an prostitution case, follow some simply rules, and you often can avoid a lot of upcoming problems you can cause unintentionally.
Keep cool and don`t get in panic, often there will be a chance to get out of this trouble, just because they are trying to find the managers and not waste their time with customers or because your "fine" attract them or their just want to "scare" the scene and "blow it away", but not to bring too much trouble to girls and customers.
There are many "rumors" how to find best place or best time to avoid stumble into a police raid, but honestly there is no way to avoid it totally, but the chance to win in a lottery is higher than getting caught in a raid here in Shanghai, but even that sometimes people win the million somewhere. But just avoid the more risky activities can avoid 99% of the risk to get problems.

Very Risky Activity
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Independent Escorts * * * * *
Independent girls who will come to your room will be a safe entertainment. Till now the hotels don`t care who will come or go, and even if the girl would be "raided", there is no evidence for her "business", and in your room she even could be your lover or girlfriend. As long as their is no money involved, it is not a problem to sleep with a stranger, and no one will know about your arrangement finally!
Bar Pickup * * * * *
A pickup also on the save side. As long as you both not talk about a money arrangement, no one can prove any illegal activities. But better use the time in taxi to know name, age and so on of your "new girlfriend" and vice versa, because in worst case they would ask you or the girl.
KTV Pickup * * * * *
Till now KTVs not have got really big problems, because in the Klub there will not happen any obviously illegal prostitution, and if you take her home, she could be your Girlfriend already. So this kind of naughty entertainment mostly is save fun.
Upscaled Sauna Club * * * *
The big sauna clubs will be informed, if the risk for a rate comes up and close than. They also have several hidden doors to block away the police from the "delicate" areas, so there is a big chance, that you will not get problems, if "join" a raid.
Escort Agency Girls * * *
Agencies are a little bit more dangerous than independent girls, because if the manager there will be caught, they also can raid the current customers places regarding to his current "data base"
Small Sauna Club * *
The risk to get caught in a small sauna club is higher, because first they can pay less for "information", second they will not have so professional hidden areas like the big places, so here the risk is often comparable with a massage Shop
Happy Ending Massage * *
The happy ending massage shops have one advantage. Because there will be no sex service, there will also be no used condoms, so no proof that something naughty happened, as long as all keep quiet. But this shops will be raided very often.
Incall / QQ-Girls *
QQ girls which will invite you to visit them in your appartment have never been a good choice. They are located in normal compounds, and the neighbors mostly not like this business around, so they often call the police to raid this appartments
The risk to get caught in a Barbershop is nearly the highest, because it`s obviously what they offer, no way to block or hide in case of a raid and not enough reveniew to pay for a very good protection, so better avoid it.
If you find any place closed, or you get informed about raids or similar activities, please share it here, so that we can collect all on a central place to keep us all up to date.
