Ethics and the massage therapist

Today is my introduction to my blog with my first post. Yes, I am one of the evil, dishonest people who have posted a picture that isn't me.

I chose to do that because of my new career as a massage therapist and living in a very rural area where everyone knows you and your business. But I am here because I enjoy reading, communicating and laughing at a very adult, kinky level.

I often wonder what goes on in the mind of a client when at the end of the massage I am asked to go on a date. Of course, I don't date my clients, so I politely decline. But, how many people at the end of a doctor's exam or a chiropractic treatment as their doctor for a date?

I have a college degree and then I additionally went to school for a couple of years for massage therapy. I am a professional. What is it that makes me in a class of it's own and all rules are thrown out the window?

I am quite social and do go out from time to time and enjoy a beer with friends. Often I am approached and asked what I do for a living. I chose not to tell anyone because it cause such chaos. "Ah, my neck hurts," "really? do you do nude massage?"

I knew that this type of thing came with the territory when I signed on but it is much much more than I expected. I have recently put a block on my personal phone, not my business phone, due to "personal" callers asking for sexual favors.

You might think I'm uptight, but one indescretion on my part could ruin my career. And that would be sad because I do so love what I do.

I can understand you situation, and I think you are right in trying to keep your professional and personal life seperate. I honestly think alot of people dont understand what a massage therapist do, or maybe it is the fact that they are in a relax postion and have a chance to daydream as they feel your hands on them. Maybe this is why the offers and such. It might be as close as some of them get to personal contact with a lady. I am not saying this is right as in my book it isnt. I hope your business works out for you up there. I been to your area and it seems to be a growing place with lots of oppurtinities.
Good Luck.

ISNT IT HARD TO NOT GET SOMEWHAT ARROUSED AS YOU DO YOUR JOB?
I KNOW WHEN I GIVE A FEMALE A MASSAGE I CAN GET ARROUSED VERY MUCH IF I AM NOT CAREFULL. DONT TAKE THIS THE WRONGE WAY BUT I THINK PEOPLE WOULD TAKE YOU MORE SERIUSLY IF YOU CHANGED YOUR NASTY LOOKING PIC!
NO OFFENSE MENT.

I love to give and receive message and have received both professional and non professional massage. Message is not my profession. I think there is a tendenacy for sexual excitement even when receiving a message from a professional if it is one of the first few times one has received a message. I also think this excitement is aroused easier in the message recipient if they have lacked physical touch by the opposite sex for a period before the message. I also think the attractiveness or lack thereof has a big impact on the excitement one may have. So does how you dress, talk, and act, and even any background music may impact this feeling. I could probably go on and on and bore you with additional thoughts, so I will cut it short. Perhaps if you are interested I could share additional thoughts with you.
Have a good day.
