For goodness sakes - I've wondered when they would close this place down. Ridiculous. And right near Slopes.

My husband and I just noticed this place a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't believe there was something like this in cartersville. I knew there'd be something illegal going on there, and I was right!

Jennifer, I was shocked when I was told about the location, then known as Lily Spa. That was when police did a sting a couple years ago. Until today, I didn't know there was still a spa back there. But if you do an online search for it, all kinds of stuff comes up on various message boards. I wasn't sure what some of the abbreviated lingo meant, but I definitely got the references to one of the more common two-letter slang words!

I wish they would expose the CUSTOMERS names! Lots of people would be surprised. I remember when the one on 411 was in operation, it wasnt unusual to ride bye n see DOT Company vehicles, and other well known Businesses Vehicles there.

Don't you just hate it when the police pick on hard working people.
Bob February 01, 2012 at 01:23 AM
Prostitution should be made legal and taxed. Let the police spend their time going after real criminals.
Carol February 01, 2012 at 04:58 PM
Yeah, Robert, let's legalize prostitution and marijuana....Let's turn our society into a real bonafide dumpster!
Bob February 01, 2012 at 08:45 PM
You sound like a right wing religious nut case.
Bill Thrasher February 02, 2012 at 12:05 AM
Robert, Carol didn't come across that way to me...some folks are just not comfortable throwing in the towel on such things and it likely has nothing to do with religious affiliation.

While we love to get your comments, we have to keep it clean, guys! In addition to profanity, our terms of use disallow any comment that promotes any illegal activities. I've deleted the comments in violation of the policy.

I agree with you on the profanity but let's be a little more careful regarding hindering free speech. I replied to Robin Summey's comment and this reply was was removed although it did not contain profanity or promote illegal activities. I merely said that maybe he/she would get a dirty little thrill if the names of the spa's customers were released as was wished for.
Brande Poulnot (Editor) February 03, 2012 at 02:22 AM
Robert, my comment was not about any of your comments or those of Robin, so I'm not sure who removed one of your comments, but I can check on it. My comment—about profanity and promoting illegal activities—was in regard to some of Randall's posts, which I removed.
J.M. Prince February 03, 2012 at 10:21 AM
Lest we feel all too self satisfied that such activities are either remote or uncommon, there's this news via HLTV.com & CNN (earlier on Dr. Drew), note that UGA is #2: http://www.hlntv.com/article/2012/01/27/sugar-babies-sugar-daddies-seeking-arrangement-list
