I’d a celebrity client in my own private practice a couple months ago and when his session was up he sat up on the massage table and said quite politely, “can we’ve sex now, please.” I was taken aback by the request and wasn’t sure I heard correctly, so I said, huh? He repeated his request and I jokingly responded “not today, maybe next time” with a nervous giggle and maintained giving my follow-up care suggestions. Well, he was friendly, very ready to accept the vitality and therapy I delivered and let’s face it, a lot of people is likely to be in a “very loving head space” at the conclusion of a really good massage. I didn’t wish to abruptly change that. He returned for yet another session, but I am now wondering whether he did so because I said “maybe next time” as opposed to respond that sex was not on my menu of services. Since I was a little surprised by his request, joke or no joke, I decided that I would always refer clients to my Menu of Services, and remind them that I am not licensed to practice whatever else, especially that that is illegal best Brisbane escorts and adult massages
Earlier this week, I put the word on my fan page that I was in the search for a fresh place to reopen for business. I would be ready to accept suggestions that afforded foot traffic, signage and which was low-budget and unencumbered by anything porn related. A man colleague sent me an email, reiterating his earlier advice that I get out of any business linked to the porn industry since landlords are less ready to rent space to these businesses. This, although my colleague knows I am not doing pornographic massage, and there are legal and reputable places here for legitimate bodywork. He hasn’t been to my practice, while he prefers to really have a happy ending after his massage and so he visits these other locations that offer that. Not really “my loss”….
At a stage in my own career/business where I, as an individual woman without support from anyone, am struggling to survive alongside everyone who don’t wish to “cross over,” these suggestions kind of well…break my heart. It isn’t enough to be concerned that some psychopath or pervert will probably request a massage that I get chosen to head out and do; or worst, maybe he concerns my home for the massage and does something to ruin my sacred space. I am not much better than doing pornographic massage and actually I will make better money and live better if I were to cross over. This I have been told by many of the male colleagues in this area. Some people I played poker with were very frank with me and indicated when I offered happy endings, they’d be there three times per week. I am a good-looking woman and I can’t change that this is the way men think and it is certainly caused by who request massages. How disheartening for people who want their chosen field of work to be anything but salacious, lecherous, and pornographic. All I wish to give is clean, healthy, therapeutic healing and rejuvenation delivered by a healthy, clean conduit with amazing, loving hands and heart. These scenarios are the reason why I despise the language masseuse and masseur. They imply erotic touch, something immoral and, well,…shameful…unless you are a “person of the night time,” an escort, a prostitute who is proud and happy about being that. I AM A MASSAGE THERAPIST, OFFERING MASSAGE THERAPY; NOT THE SAME THING AS THESE PROUD PROSTITUTES.
Understandably, the Wikipedia says: “Those that practice massage as a lifetime career are called masseurs, masseuses, or, if certified, as massage therapists.” What masseuse and masseur are from the French word, Masser, meaning “to massage,” “to knead” (as in bread), “to rub down,” “to mass or to throng together.” Hence the masseuse (female) and the masseur (male) does the “rubbing down” or [therapeutically] “mass or throng together” your broken spirits, bodies, energies, so that you heal, become whole again to go back out and face your challenges. They are the sentiments behind my massage practice. I desire to simply help people become whole again, if even for a moment, so they can heal little by little and face their challenges with a loving feeling and maybe loving thoughts in their hearts. This is the initial import of those words, although somewhere on the way they truly became popular in the whore houses of Europe, Asia and the Americas.
I belong to a religion in which modesty is just a big deal. I’ve told many therein that I am a massage therapist and I watch for the look on the faces. Some have taken my card/number, possibly to “investigate” while others bring it but will never call. Others have chosen never to associate with me because well, (1) I wear dreadlocks, that is with a an immodest, rebellious hairstyle among other things; and (2) they imagine that I am doing something “unholy” in my own massage business and God knows where else I am unholy in my own path and hence I should be ruled a negative associate. If I say I am a therapist, they instantly assume “physical therapist”…and that’s o.k…, but not massage therapist…they don’t find out about that….
I’ve wondered what they’d do if I said I was a gynecologist or urologist. Hmm…I wonder whether they’d have the same reaction. After all, these professionals look at vaginas and penises, etc. all day! They are the exact same those who go to a doctor and strip down for examinations and have no idea whether a doctor is just a pervert, child molester, rapist, or whatever or care whether he or she shares their beliefs. They simply trust best Brisbane escorts and adult massages
