I've never had a massage in my life, although I'd really like to. But I've never really know 1) what I was supposed to do, and 2) I was afraid I'd get a boner. I guess I thought a guy would be more understanding, but I don't know how I'd explain asking specifically for a dude. So I never have. This forum helps. Maybe I'll try it. Of course, I'd like to think if I get a hardon someone would take advantage of it. The question for you experts is, if they do, how much do you tip?

Bare minimum requirements (no pun intended): 1) just lie there; 2) turn over when requested; and 3) relax and enjoy

(tip equivalent to the quality of the service)

If a guy knows what he's doing, it's one of the best experiences in life. Don't miss out.

I have always had the same feelings about getting a professional massage. A Massage is kind of sexual to me and so I rarely have it done. I was always afraid of what might happen and not know the professional ettiquette or the proper way to respond. This has helped.

The same guy has been massaging me weekly for the last three or four years. Sometimes I bone --sometimes I don't.
A few weeks ago I flipped over and was sporting a major woody. He mumbled something like
"Great, I am happy to see you too."
I cracked up (my massuer is a straight family man) and my erection went down.

I went to massage school when I was 19 years old. There was an entire lesson erections during massage. Essentially, they happen. It's not always a sexual thing--men get hard when they feel good, be it sexually or otherwise.

I've done bodywork on all sorts of people. I get moaners, sighers, completely comatose corpses, chatty chattertons, etc. All of 'em get hard at one point or another. (Women's nipples also get hard during massage.) Unless the man actually draws attention to the fact that he's got an erection, I don't really even notice. It's not my focus while I'm doing the massage so it's not an area I really pay attention to.

I've known a few women who quit the business altogether because of the erection factor and I think that's rather unfortunate. Unless a man tries to actually get frisky with me while he's on my table, it's just not an issue.

And as far as massage being a sexual thing--if you ever go to massage school, that will kill any link of sex and massage you had. I find it incredibly non-sexual now, just a feel-good experience.

i actually got a message for my bday...i expected to get a bonner but the female i thought was going to do the message wasnt. the person giving the message wasnt attractive, so no bonner at all. was that good i guess. you have to strip down to just unerwear and get under a sheet. when she messages the innerthighs a bonner can definately happen but in this case it didnt. so i think the massuse has a lot to do with it

Eva is right. A good masseuse (sp?) doesn't really pay attention to it and just does their part which is therapeutic.

Now as a client, there is some responsibility on your part. if you go in looking for "a hot masseuse" you may want to rethink why you are getting the massage. I have had a masseuse for 5 years now and all of them are very professional. Erections happen. As Eva said, you start to feel good, it happens. Or as my current masseuse puts it:

Schwing happens.

As a client, I am not going in for sex or sexual arousal. I am going for body health and generally to feel good and relieve pain. Early on, I had a friend who was going through massage school and she wanted to use me as a test case. I thought sure, why not. I found out why not. Seems she wanted to know if what they say about black men was true. I am the relaxed client so sometimes I doze off. Can you imagine me being awakened to my masseuse doing a good job on my cock? Not cool.

A good masseuse/client relationship depends on both knowing the needs and roles they both play and that means no sex and understanding that "schwing happens", mostly unplanned. A good masseuse will work around the "issue" and not make an issue of it.

Tipping depends on you and what your preferences are.

As for me, I tend to tip 20% minimum. I can be an excessive tipper but when massage is the subject, I have to take a few things into account:

--if they work at a dayspa, chances are they're renting the space at a very high price

--if they aren't renting the space, they're working on a "cut" basis and these tend to suck for the therapist; standard rates tend to be 60%/40% favouring the therapist but cruise ships will often book solid days without breaks and the therapist makes 10% to 20% of the massage price

--if they are on their own and drive to my place, I take gasoline and insurance into account. Insurance is more expensive for therapists who go-to than for ones that are in place. (Usually, the buildings are insured and any injuries due to the massage will be covered by the home-owners/work insurance.)

I've had hundreds of massages, but never gotten an erection. Though most are always deep tissue and more painful.

They do teach massage students to just ignore it if it happens though.

Eva? Maybe this would help everybody out (and even me as I am about to lose my wonderful therapist). What is a good way to go about finding a good therapist other than the spas (Gene Juarez is expensive and pays the massage staff horribly) or a medical professional?

Everytime I have gotten a massage from my therapist an erection was sure to come. It usually happens when I get rubbed in the butt and hamstrings, thighs. I think it is just hardwired in me. My massuse takes it as a compliment that he is doing something right. There is just something about the touch that gets me hard, great magic hands - strong, warm, soft, and firm.

I always recommend starting at a local massage school. Depending on the program the students are in, they've got to accumulate a set number of clinic hours before they get their certification. Many schools offer clinics where their students can actually give lower rate massages to up their clinic hours. Don't worry about sub-par massages; they only begin clinic hours after they've had all their training for the actual massages. Training includes practicing on one another during class time. (I haven't really received a proper massage since school.)

I still recommend tipping students. Most of the time, money earned during clinic hours goes straight to the school and not to the student since they're not officially certified at that point. Students can always use the money and if you get a good one, keep in touch with him/her or request that student if you return and s/he is still there. If you become one of the first regular clients for a newly certified professional, you usually get bonus discounts, extra long massages, etc.

When I was doing it regularly (it's now one of my many "fallbacks"), I set a price for my clients on their first massage. So long as they came regularly (whatever that meant for them--once a week, month, blah blah), their price was the same even if my rates rose. So someone could feasibly be getting a $40/hour massage while everyone else was paying $60 to $65 simply because he was a regular from the get-go. And don't be afraid to offer up a deal like that. Therapists are always looking for reliable, regular clients.

I did a quick google search and found a site that lists a bunch of schools in Seattle, Osiris. It's technically a site about choosing the right school as a student, but I figured you could click the links to the schools and check out their clinic hours, etc.

Every Friday afternoon I get a deep tissue massage - and mostly it is painful. My masseur is a married straight guy like myself. I get an erection everytime, and it last however long it's there. I don't worry about it, and I don't believe he does either. I don't want him to provide any sexual favors so I don't know if that would increase the tip. I tip him 20% each time anyway.
