I was lucky to catch the last 45 minutes of the movie "Rub & Tug" I mentioned in an earlier thread about courtesans in the movies. Judging from the credits, the film was released last year and looks to be filmed in Toronto. Funding came from TeleFilm, Movie Central, & Corus Entertainment, among others.

I picked up the movie just as a new girl applied at the MP where the three girls in the story work. She says she's never worked at an MP before, so the geeky guy who sort of runs the place takes her in the back and shows her the ropes. He explains what happens; both of you undress, the girl gives a massage for 10 minutes, then rolls the guy over and offers a hand job. Afterwards, the geeky guy has a regular come in and he sets him up with the new girl. Before long, the regular runs out screaming 'she offered me full service, i'm calling the cops!' Of course the girl denies it and the geek can't resolve it, and the regular leaves. Everyone flees the MP because of his threats to call the cops.

Here's a quick description of the three girls in the story: the first girl is a brunette, really tough, been in the business a while. She has a bit of a mean streak. The second one is pretty innocent and pretty fine! She's blonde and sort of dim-witted. The third girl is asian and she speaks in broken english, 'fresh off the boat' as the new girl called her.

Anyways, the new girl walks out after that first call with the screaming regular. Then the blonde gets a call, which turned out to be her boyfriend (I assumed from the dialogue). The scene was set up so he figured out she worked there because he was a pooner himself and called to book an appt., and the geeky guy gave out the blonde's real name for him to figure out. So they inevitably meet and proceed to have a quickie on the table.

It seemed like the brunette was getting fed up with the MP, so soon she was answering ads for what appeared to be other businesses for sale, asking if they were licensed. She wanted to venture out on her own but her stocks took an 18 point tumble, so that was over.

The asian girl ends up having her home burglarized. The thieves took all of her belongings and money she had made working at the MP. Later on, the geek pays for a pizza with money that supposedly belonged to the asian girl (the $5 bill he used was marked with an upsidedown Diefenbaker head). The pizza guy complains about the bill and the brunette overhears it, figures everything out and confronts the geek. He so much as admitted to it without actually saying it and then proceeds to buy the MP from the current owner with the asian's money, so now the girls work for him.

Meanwhile, the asian gets one of her regulars in and he seems quite smitten with her, asking her 'where do we go from here', sort of giving the impression he wanted her to quit the biz and shack up with him. She breaks down and tells of being burglarized, and off the cuff mentions she can't legally work in this country and has no recourse. Well, the regular turns out to be an Immigration officer who now is getting her deported.

The brunette and blonde get together and decide to f**k over the geek. They call the cops and have the MP raided, then they tell the cops about being held against their will, forced to do unspeakable acts, forced to do FS for free for all the geeks friends. He claimed he was the one trying to stop them from doing FS (the description of the movie says that the girls are doing more in the back room than they are supposed to), but to no avail. The cops throw the book at him.

The asian is waiting for the plane with her regular/Immigration officer but he feels bad for turning her in, so he lets her escape while he goes to the washroom. In the end, all three girls take over the business. Everyone wins and they have a big party for the three of them and all of their regulars.

bad movie, I had the misfortune of seeing it in the movie theatre. Not the WORST movie I've ever seen, but hardly the best. If you're bored and want to see what a smaller rub and tug place might look like, go watch the movie. Vancouver I think is just a tiny bit different from the movie. :)

The movie is obviously based out of Toronto, where the MPs never include overt sex acts, like BJs or FS. It's because of the laws there...very much different than Vancouver.

For me, the movie was a bit of a disappointment. Not nearly as much eroticism and nudity as the topic deserves!
