A man was caught masturbating on a TRA train at 11 pm on March 7, Apple Daily reported. A woman noticed the man playing with himself and alerted the conductor. The conductor also found the man still masturbating without bothering to cover himself. The exhibitionist had his pants down and didn’t care that other passengers could see.

The man was recently released from prison for theft. He was sentenced to 50 days in jail and a NT$50,000 fine. He managed to one-up the man caught exposing himself on the MRT in March.

A massage parlor in Taipei’s Datong District allegedly advertised that its masseuses “all wear less,” so police investigated Saturday afternoon, UDN reported. For NT$1300 customers could get a friendly massage, but they were offered an extra-friendly special hand service for an additional NT$500. The customer at the massage parlor during the police search admitted to paying the extra NT$500. The masseuse caught by police denied wrongdoing, but police found “evidence” on the towels indicating otherwise.

Last year Taichung police caught a 15-year-old girl in a prostitution sting. They seized her cell phone and found three clients who had paid NT$3000-3500 for sexual services at least once, according to Apple Daily. One man pleaded guilty in court but claimed that he never knew the girl’s age despite her insistence that her age was displayed on her profile.

The three men will pay the girl’s family NT$150,000-250,000. Each was sentenced last month to 14 months in jail and 40-60 of community service.

Finally, police in New Taipei busted a prostitution ring that offered threesomes with two women to clients, according to UDN. The operation was discovered because it advertised its services online.
