It's been 7 month since I read and posted this thread and I can't believe it's still alive. I can't believe so many people are hang up about nudity.

I won't get a massage from a therapist that insist on draping me. It's just so silly. Would you go to a gynecologist that insist draping over the groin area and do everything by feel?

I'm fortunate that I can exchange massages with another therapist who shares my views and values on this issue.

I don't have any hangups about nudity at all, in fact I could very easily be a nudist. I do however, drape ALL clients because I run a professional clinic. I personally find that I get more respect from clients because of this.

I also expect my GYN to keep me covered above the groin area, never heard of a gyn/ob visit where you are nude with no cover. How do you equate being covered with a sheet by your doctor and doing anything by feel? Most MTs uncover the area being worked, never heard of working through a sheet for most clients.

Draping is merely showing respect for the client, not having hangups as so many are trying to falsely accuse here.

In America, nudity and touch are too easily equated with sex. It is for this reason that rules for draping where established. Draping also establishes boundaries for the MT and for the client.

Most clients are not comfortable with being completely on display for anyone. For those who hate being draped with a sheet, a towel will suffice.

I ask that you please stop labeling and belittling those who are different from you. There are rules and regulations in place to protect the client and the MT. Please remember that there is much diversity in this world and no one thing will please everyone.

About butt massage: I teach my clients about the 9 muscles on each side of their butt so that they have a better understanding of why I spend so much time on their gluts, and to de-sexualize it for anyone who might get the wrong idea (i.e. sex). Knowledge is a good thing.

Such passion from some and name calling from others... there are as many different views on this subject as there are therapists and clients.
Every one has different boundaries or ideas of how to approach different people.

This is just one man's opinion. My massage was perfect. I did not ask or pay more for anything extra. She was dressed in colorful and comfortable nurse scrubs. She was warm and thoughtful throughout the massage. Her 90 min massage was professional, thorough and complete. She was as professional as any that I had ever been to. To label her as anything negative is absurd to me. Her massage was absolutely incredible. The ending was a complete surprise. It brought all of my emotions, muscles, thinking, and stress, to a complete calm and restful state. I never felt better after a massage in my life.

Her tenderness and understanding before, during, and after the massage, was so caring that to call her anything but special would be... just wrong.

It is funny that this all started with a guy wanting someone to massage deep in what he called "his Crack" and "between his balls and his hole". It started stupid and is ending stupid. I am a LMT in Texas and do mostly 99% women. Many of who want the same as men, which is the touch of the other sex and to hope they get a glimps of their goods. I keep most as draped as they are comfortable being, but for those ladies that want to have me see and massage the glutes, i do. I do not do anything illegal, but will give a massage that accomplishes what they are looking for, and because i definately do not have a problem with the body, or any of its parts, if i see something so be it. I also prefer undraped massage, but it because i dont want to spend my money on someone that is moving the sheet around constantly. It takes time. Who cares what my therapist see, who also happens to be my instructor, if see sees by butt or other, who cares, its not like she is putting out a newletter "guess what i saw today" lol...guys get over it. half of you are getting off on the fantasy stories and the others are on this high and mighty episode. ITS A MASSAGE, it suppose to feel very very good, if done correctly. lol

What a surprise! Another Texas MT who stands up for the exhibitionist/voyeur side of the massage industry. Well, I'll stick with being a professional, thank you.

So 'avj lmt', do women come right out and say that they want you to massage more of their glutes that what you would normally do by keeping them partially draped or do they ask for an undraped massage? As an LMT do you massage more of the glutes and into the cleft if they are undraped or is you massage essentially the same? Just curious if a draped vs undraped massage is any different as far as what gets massaged.

I do draped massage, as the State Medical Board mandates. My female clients, who are quite comfortable with my technique, sometimes ask for glute and piriformis work. I iron my sheets, so they don't mind the drape at all and they love the feel of ironed sheets. It is quite easy to position the drape on a nude client to cover the cleft and still allow full access to the origin of the glutes on the sacrum. If I didn't drape or otherwise acted in a voyeuristic or lecherous fashion, I'm sure they wouldn't come back. But they do, on a weekly basis.

so by not draping you are a voyeur or a lech, even if the client asked for this? A little uptight you are, or maybe you just let some honesty slip and you admitted you cannot control yourself with an undraped client!

MiamiRT, why don't you just get a life? Or are you just trying to stimulate a little more discussion?

WTF??? How did you get that inference from my reply? What I am saying is THAT IF YOU IGNORE THE LAW and violate the draping regulations of the State Medical Board then, yes, you operate in a voyeuristic and lecherous fashion and at least in the states that regulate massage, you can be shut down. Many of my clients are police officers, and I am glad to have their respect and continued business. If I behaved as you wish all of us to behave, I would have been arrested and stripped of my license long ago. And Miami, I am not a hormonal kid like yourself. I can control myself. LOL

LMT, you need to check your facts before you write/speak again.
PS - you're NOT a doctor

Check YOUR facts. I never claimed to be a doctor. But as a licensed Limited Branch Medical Practitioner (and that's what it says on my license and wallet card), we are expected to behave IN THE SAME ETHICAL MANNER AS PHYSICIANS. Those of you who lower the standards and become "package yankers" are doing a huge disservice to the profession. Get some self-respect.

Once again...tsk,tsk,tsk. Following some of the others on these boards, well, I'm starting to wonder about your caustic manner. Maybe what some people are stating is really true.

More likely, what I'm saying (as well as the other professionals on this forum) is true, and you don't have the backbone to feel ashamed.

Laugh to yourself all you want LMT, but you're the one who stated you would be a voyeur/lech not me! I am confident in myself to have a little more self control in a situation where I may be undraped.

In FL, the MT has to offer draping, but the client can choose to use it or not if the MT is willing to let them go without any. Sounds like a reasonable approach to me. I've been to MTs who want draping and others who will let me decide. There is no deep rooted fear that the sight of the human body will cause the MT to turn into a voyeur/lech or (as you have stated many times) try to rape the client.

An X-ray tech who did not drape properly would be fired and would most likely lose his/her license (I know because I was an X-ray tech from 1974 to the time I joined the Navy). So would a nurse, or an OR tech. So would a gynecologist, or a chiropractor, or a physical therapist, or any other medical professional.
So why do you expect massage therapists, even in Miami, to behave like prostitutes or voyeurs?
And, boy, you need to brush up on your reading skills. I never said that I would be a voyeur/lech as you put it. Far from it. You can respect and appreciate the beauty of the human body without making a wet spot in your shorts. You can work on a beautiful female without disrespecting her and abusing the therapist/client relationship. You can receive therapy without expecting or demanding to be jacked off. When you grow up, you may understand that.

LMT?

Why all the anger? You are not representing yourself well. You are coming across as prudish, close minded, and hostile.

MT's are not Xray technicians. Many clients come to MTs just for the comfort/luxury of being touched. I've been to both. There is a big difference.

There are many wonderful and decent massage therapists who perform a wide variety of massage services. What's good for one might not be good for another. Creating a unique and wonderful massage experience for your client is the goal.

It's a "touchy" subject for sure... but your attacking others is more revealing about yourself than anyone else.

Your name says it all. You are NOT a massage therapist, and you have not taken the oath. Prudish? Because I follow the law? Get over your childish desire to degrade massage to something it is not. If you have to pay a woman to "pleasure" you, you are looking for something else, NOT massage therapy. A massage therapy session by a professional, without the inappropriate genital rubbing, is a VERY pleasurable experience all by itself. The gals who have to add the sex to get repeat business do not represent the profession. My "anger," as you put it, is because you try to group the professionals with the unprofessionals.
