The story of a male massage therapist accused of sexually abusing his female clients is just ... icky. ---
It would be a shame, though, for people to malign the whole massage-therapy industry based upon the alleged misdeeds of one reportedly unlicensed practitioner. From what I've seen, real massage therapists are capable of providing a fine, chaste service that often includes soothing incense; positive vibes; a hypnotic, drone-y soundtrack; and an ongoing stream of chirpy verbal chatter filled with esteem-inspiring affirmations.
And that's just the cheap seats ... er, tables; I also understand that the higher-end experts are able to make all kinds of therapeutic, spine-straightening, muscle-aligning, tendon-stretching things happen.
It's clear that massage therapy is not a form of legalized prostitution, and the trained professionals who enter the field are providing a legitimate, valuable service that, despite critics' claims, is more than just giving neck rubs for pay.
Still, before the sound of clucking tongues drowns out all reasonable dialog, we might ask: Is there really no legitimate demand for those other, less legitimate services--such as that which the accused was evidently attempting to provide in an inept and potentially felonious manner?
After all, male clients all over the world are willing to pay for massages with "happy endings"--and the women (and men) who cheerfully accommodate them have always been in hot demand. Also, since the need for stress-relief must only go up during tough economic times, it's probably a recession-proof industry.
There must be women who would enjoy a similar form of specialized care from time to time. Now, I'm certainly no expert on the matter, but I think a plucky entrepreneur with the right skills could fill the niche--as long as he (or she) can answer a few simple questions:
Of course, I certainly don't know anything about "vaginal points" and "holding prior internal work" or whatever the fuck--like I said in a high, quavering voice, "Icky!"--so the above questionnaire must be taken with a grain of salt. But, with luck, the above questionnaire might help would-be, *ahem*, "deep-tissue" masseurs determine whether or not they're really cut out for the demands of such an exacting profession.
