Banning reason: Previously banned (stevieshake)

There was one on Kilnside Road, Paisley, in about '86/88. It advertised as a photographic sauna and I had a nice young girl in there. I got so excited that I  forgot about the photographs. There was Lady Godiva on Cathcart Rd, near Crosshill station. There was Muirend Sauna on Clarkston Road, opposite what is now Sainsburys. I was never in the latter two, and they seemed to shut all of a sudden. I was told that it was due to licensing. It was a bit like the Wild West back then.

My favourites were,

Sauna Royal, Granville St. I can still remember young, pretty, and petite Chloe from there.
The one on Otago St with the red light outside the door. I can still remember Lynn from there. Was that Oasis?
The one on Crow Road.

In about May '93 I saw an ad in the Scotsman for Edinburgh saunas and started wearing the tarmac on the M8 after that.

Femmes at Victoria road. Big Sheena s man rented the place and she worked there, She ended up working up in Buckie in a pub that they ran. Femmes was a good knocking shop lots of variety in the wgs and good receptionists. Only 2 cabins and they were small.Think its an estate agents now. More will come to mind no doubt.

PS  I think that Oasis was in Bath Street, and I still remember Lynn from there. Its incredible to think that there was one in Otago St, complete with a small red light outside the door.

The one in Kilnside Rd. got shut because of the photo crap. The big whore who ran it started charging guys £5 for a shot at a polaroid camera, while they were waiting for a girl to be free, and she would pose for them, but did this in the front of the premises. Unfortunately this had previously been a shop the frosting on the front window didn't go all the way to the top and the door was clear glass, so the people living in the tenements opposite and occasionaly anyone passing in the street could see it all. Naturally this didn't last long and she ended in court.
I think she came from East Kilbride and a short time later it was all over the Paisley Daily Express that she had simply moved her business to her own house and had got raided there too. Thick as shit!
The Oasis was at the start of Bath St. Opposite the old George Hotel and up many stairs, the building got condemned by the Council as it was falling down at the back and that was the end of the Oasis. They tried to relocate somewhere central but it didn't work I seem to remember. Pity, as it was really good with some great girls.

Its very interesting to hear what happened to those two places. Thanks for that, Auldie.

The woman that ran the one in Kilnside Rd must have been in the shit line when the brains were being passed out, as the Yanks would say.

Wow....I completely missed this post for some reason. Well done to the OP for rekindling some amazing long list memories.
I am trying my best to recollect one that is not already been mentioned.
I don't recall Kareens being a walk in joint, more like a hike up two flights of stairs. If that counts as a Sauna, then I must add the one on Windsor Place? at the Leith Walk end of London Road. Like Kareens, a flat with a number of girls sitting in a lounge. Only went once, as it was outed in the papers shortly after and closed. That was in the days where you had to search the Sunday Sport for providers. No internet those days.
