Skip to comments.Nude maid service may be against the law

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - They clean houses, but this new Lubbock business claims to offer nude or partially nude services. It's called Lubbock Fantasy Maid Service.
The owner, Melissa Borrett, tells us she started the business after struggling to make ends meet.
"As a single mother, I had been working a variety of different jobs, including waitressing out at the strip club. I was having to answer to a lot of people," Borrett said.
For $100 an hour she says they will clean your house nude or topless. They opened about a month ago and she says business is booming.
"We've had college students, business people and paramedics. We actually offer a discount to law enforcement," she said.
But is there anything illegal going on?
"We have a very strict no touching policy with this business. There is definitely nothing illegal going on. We really clean houses," Borrett said.
The Lubbock Police Department says otherwise. Coming up tonight on KCBD NewsChannel 11 at 10 we'll tell you how a city ordinance could prevent this business from operating.

There is no public exposure inside a private residence unless someone goes out of their way to make it public.
Wouldnt surprise me if some of these guys leave the blinds open
You can't see inside a house during the day regardless of the position of blinds. I doubt that these services are provided outside of 9am to 5pm.
One needs to be a lawyer for this, but today's laws can be interpreted to prohibit anything and to arrest everyone. The government really wants to know what is happening in your bedroom.
One possible defensive move is to claim that the company is run by nudists, and restrictions infringe on their civil rights. I'd think this as a good defense because nudism is perfectly legal in many places, and certainly on private property. San Francisco allows nudism anywhere in the city (not a surprise, though.)
If she isn’t careful, she may become an eeeeevil One Percenter.
I haven’t seen it mentioned yet, but I wouldn’t avail myself of this service. I am afraid they’d use the “Pay for nude” excuse to do slipshod work.
Is that a knee tattoo?
I’ve heard of these wacky occutards tagging various parts of their bodies, but the KNEE???
Who does that?
(I know - I know. Some sleaze of a mother who gets paid to clean houses in the nude. Her children must be so proud of her. /s)
Thanks for pointing that out, Bob!
"...yeah and bring some of...those...whatta mean illegal?..each of you had some last time...and catnip, bring the catnip"
Do you mean to insinuate that the nudity may be a distraction? :-)
That would be an interesting business model. “Lacking real skills in your chosen profession? Take attention away from your incompetence by performing your duties in the buff!”
Years ago when I lived in Des Moines, IA there was a topless oil change place called the Boob and Lube.
It differs because of the liquor.
There are totally nude bars in my state but they serve juice instead of alcohol.
Since they are not an alcohol establishment they allow brown bagging and charge a fee to keep it cold for you.
This could lead to many interesting conversations, for example:
while standing at the front door, “Would you like your knob polished?”
Girls don’t like to look at nude men, as men enjoy looking at nude women.
I was just about to post the same thing. Glad someone else noticed.
Is that a tattoo or a bruise on her left knee?
According to some who have seen the business owner, you may not want that wish fulfilled.
“Prefer gay clients in the Vancouver area”
Ya think? I’ll bet this guy cleans windows, pipes, anything you have that needs cleaning.
And usually the people who use this service are kind of pathetic. I do hope they provide some sort of security for the maids. Background checks and the like. Even regular maid services do that.
.....that there is your first problem.
Where's is the daddy? Do you even know who he is?

Yeah, I saw that Seinfeld episode too.
You and Bob ought to get together for beers and discuss the weather.
If she’s had a C-Section and the incision site is infected with MSRA...I’m not sure anyone would want to pay for a gander!
Call me naieve, but can’t MRSA be cured if you clean/irrigate the infection site and use a strong course of broad antibiotics?
I think you wrongly believe that I think that this should be outlawed. I think what consenting adults do behind closed doors is their business. I think that the laws have drifted so far past the line as to be utterly unreasonable. Defenders of banning this will toss up strawmen arguments that the women are at risk of being raped, or that it could easily become cover for a prostitution ring.
And my response is that it’s far more likely that both of these strawmen are LESS likely. Higher scrutiny will be given to this service, because of the nudity, and that makes prostitution less likely, and really, pretty much only a moron would decide to hire someone to come to their home and rape them. And if that is their goal, they’ll likely go with some illegal cleaning lady who likely won’t report it.
I’m sick and tired of government intrusion into my life.
A lot of recent strands of MSRA have become anti-biotic resistant and can cause a lot of damage or death. What gets me is it is usually picked up in the hospital and they would want to make sure she gets long term treatment for their own liability issues.
That, along with knowing the services available in Lubbock, I suspect she is either willfully ignorant, stupid, or lying.
If they truly clean between the cracks, who am I to report them?
Sorry fella, but we really don’t like looking at your, ummm, package flying around. Didn’t get that from a Seinfeld episode, just the way we girls are.
(don't bother looking up)
JimRob must be snickering while the Admin Mods are ringing his cell phone off the charger begging to delete this thread!
Banana Hammock Alert!
“Is that a knee tattoo?”
Just a bad case of Nekkid HouseMaid’s Knee
The female auxiliary of my fraternity conducted this sort of activity as a fundraiser from the early '60's into the early '80's.
Of course, they traveled in packs and had one or more of us burly dudes with them to make sure everybody paid, was respectful and polite.
It was AWESOME!
MRSA? No touching? NOT a problem...
Is that from a new touch-free “scare your dirt away” housekeeping service?
Can Borrett provide a staff picture?
Oddly, TX has no law covering exposure of breasts.
The only aplicable woul dbe a disorderly conduct charge if someone was offended. Even then, it’s a citation, or the person has to go to JP to file it if it does not happen in the presence/view of a peace officer.
Nude is another story, unless there is no public view. Even Nude in public has to have an element of exposure of the actual genitals/anus for the sexual gratification of any person. Tough to prove unless there is masturbation involved.
Some maid services don’t do windows. This one will do your windows but won’t cook bacon.
Does this action make the company a bust?
-—I imagine there are a number of freepers that could tell you, and also why it is morally reprehensible, demon-spawned and just another reason why the US is cursed and will fail. Oh yeah, and shes a liberal.-—
What could possibly go wrong?
Women have always had the sexy plumber/drug dealer in their homes showing them their crack.
This sounds like an equal rights situation to me.
So, all women are repulsed by the bare male form. One learns something new every day.
You may have your finger on something there...
Yep, Africa's future went down a dark hole...
I was especially bewildered by the first sentence: "I am a 25 year old single mom." Notice that she apparently put a "^" above the word "single", appearing to intend to insert "single" between "I" and "am." In other words, it looks like this genius meant to correct her sentence to read, "I single am a 25 year old mom."
