Although soliciting for prostitution purposes is still illegal, over the last ten years this has been suitably skirted over by an explosion of so-called “massage parlours” and “Gentlemen’s Clubs”, many of them under a thin veneer cover of being methods of “relaxation” and “entertainment”.Only last week no less than six women from The Ukraine (ages ranging between 36 and 39) were arraigned on charges of prostitution while working in such exotically named “parlours” as ‘The Golden Touch’, ‘Moments in Paradise’ and ‘The Lotus Massage Parlour’.They were found guilty, fined and ordered to be deported.In connection with same, two Maltese brothers and a Maltese female associate were charged with illegally running brothels, allowing premises to be used for prostitution purposes and contravening other laws connected to drugs and armaments.Like all features, CS cards are fun and totally FREE!

The vote is further evidence of Malta's transformation from a once-conservative nation, where divorce was illegal until 2011 and where abortion is outlawed.
The one MP who voted against the change said he did so because of his faith.
"A Christian politician cannot leave his conscience outside the door" when he enters parliament, Edwin Vassallo said.
Prime minister Joseph Muscat described the vote as ‘historic’.
“This shows that our democracy and society have reached a level of maturity and we can now say that we are all equal," he added.
