Why the ? Don't wear underwear if you don't want to. They don't expect you to. A lot of spa workers will think you're a newbie.

BTW, do any of you gay guys actually ask for a "male therapist"?
In Vegas you're required by law to have one.

I'm really not a big fan of massages. The one time I decided to try one out was in a reputable hotel and the guy definitely did not try any happy ending stuff -- and for that I am very, very grateful. I would be embarrased!

In any event, I'm surprised at the fact that in Vegas you need to have a same-sex massage therapist. Is that a city ordinance? I myself would prefer a female one so long as it wasn't the one mentioned above with the quick-to-slip finger!

It's a county ordinance. I think women can have men or women therapists, but men can only have male therapists. Presumably that's some kind of anti-prostitution regulation.

I always ask for a male, simply because generally they have stronger hands and I prefer deep tissue work. However, I have had some very strong female bodyworkers who were awesome, and some guys who were not very good at all.

My funniest experience was just a few months ago in Amsterdam. After walking all day in LON and AMS for 10 days in very cold weather, my whole body was pretty messed up. My B&B host tipped me off to the magnificent "Deco Spa," a day spa originally built in the 1920s as a small department store in Paris which was later disassembled, shipped to, and rebuilt in AMS. I booked a massage and was told to use the steam/sauna, etc. until my appointment in an hour with Hercules (no joke!). I had visions of...well let's just say that I imagine that my jaw visibly dropped when I walked into the treatment room and saw a guy who was probably 5'3" and 89 lbs...he was decent, but not exceptional...

Based on the assumption by the people who wrote the regulation that homosexuality dosen't exist...

I always get butt naked... Never had a happy ending (dont really want one frankly), but I do always request a male, I prefer a deep tissue massage and one time had a woman, always requested a male after that...

I've been going to Massages for years. I like full body massages and really enjoy getting "a release" at the end. That's the "official" term. Unfortunately I have never had a release at a fancy hotel/resort spa. But my biggest complaint at many of these places is that they drape you almost like a mummy, then uncover one inch of something, work on it, then cover it up again and go on, etc, etc.

I usually ask for a man therapist. Though generally I don't bother anymore and just look for a gay man in a gay rag and go there. Problem is: many aren't good and just want to get you off.

My partner is a CMT, gives people a release if they so desire. BTW, he is not interested in a release when he gets a massage. Different strokes........

I think that would disturb me if I was in your shoes. It sounds like prostitution.

If I were in yours in NC, it probably would also.

But, alas, I'm near SFO, born in FRA, so it doesn't disturb me.

I, in fact, encouraged him. ^

(He needed a little extra push since he stems from way north of MSP.)

Well, actually, I am Swiss and grew up mostly in Mill Valley, CA which is about one of the most liberal places around. I wasn't trying to be judgmental....sorry.

ditto, and this from a female. The women just don't work you hard enough, unless you're in Thailand, then a steel vise would barely compare. And most males, I have found, are gay, so I don't expect a happy ending, although at a very upscale spa resort in AZ I almost went on an overnite date with this gorgeous big strong Indian guy after he asked me out during my massage. He explained it was a locals only sweat lodge thing with everyone inside this tent naked ... I know you only live once and this may have been something I would regret not doing, but I had been hiking, etc. all day and was just too tired

Gosh, you guys have great threads over here. I have to get to this forum more often
