George McCoy is the author of ''McCoy's British Massage Parlour Guide'', a guidebook to "massage parlours" in Britain. In fact the guide is to sexual services, commonly advertised euphemistically as "massage" in the UK because soliciting prostitution is illegal. Businesses providing actual massage services are not included. He has also written several other guides to sexual services.
McCoy has been writing these guides since 1996. He has appeared on many television shows to discuss sexual services, particularly in 1998 on the UK channel ITV documentary Vice - The Sex Trade, on Channel Five in 2001 in Massage Parlours - The Real McCoy and in 2006 on BBC1 in Streets of Vice. He has also appeared on chatshows such as Kilroy.
He currently edits four specific guidebooks, ''McCoy's British Massage Parlour Guide, McCoy's British Escort Guide, McCoy's Guide to Adult Services in London and McCoy's Guide to Adult Services in East Anglia, the Midlands and Wales''. A further regional guide to the South of England (outside London) will be published in late 2008, a guide for the North of England, Scotland and Ireland is due in 2010.
In the summer of 2007 he brought out the 11th edition of his Parlour Guide and his first national Dominatrix guide. In most books the entries are split up by county and then subdivided by town, while in the London Guide, the entries are split into regions of London and then postal areas. Each entry lists basic details of establishments or ladies, such as name, phone number, web address, location, basic prices, availability, and then concludes with a paragraph comprising a resume of interesting features about the establishment or lady.
Most entries are star rated and there are photographs of many of the ladies. George McCoy has also produced city street plans to London, Birmingham and Manchester showing the locations of all the relevant cities' adult establishments - parlours, gay saunas, adult cinemas, sex shops, swinging clubs and striptease establishments with cartoons indicating their quality and details of each on the reverse side of the map.PopMatters | Columns | Mikita Brottman | Sub Rosa | The Real McCoy
