Erections during massages is it normal?

I went to this massage place (non Asian) for a double lomi-lomi massage. This is where you have two people massaging you at the same time. I was escorted to the room to unchange. As I put the towel over me, two young ladies walked in. They were acting silly and did not seem too professional. I could tell by the way they were acting and talking. They mentioned if I wanted it draped or not. I decided not to be draped. I was liking it so far. They took the towel off me and started to massage me. I heard a lot of wispering and giggling as they move their hands over me. I then flipped over with a rock hard penis as the two girls were in awl. They both massaged around my penis and then they touched it. I and started to stroke it till I came.

Sunshine, your comments are interesting, and quite surprising. It is very difficult to find a therapist who provides both a quality massage and sexual release, so I'm stunned that you didn't get more repeat business when providing those services.

In any case, the current system seems to be working well for you and your clients, and your willingness to discuss the situation frankly is very much appreciated.
Is it ever ok to ask your LMT for a non-sexual Sensual massage? I would like to try this, but do not want to give the wrong impression of wanting to go further. What can you ask for / not ask for ?

Thanks for the posts.

Instead of asking for a sensual massage, ask for a relaxation massage with no deep tissue work.

Is there a difference between Sensual and Relaxation massage?

I've been following this forum for quite a while now, and have posted in several threads. It is obvious that the differences of opinion about the role of the therapist and the expectations/wishes of the client are "all over the map." However the exchange of ideas is helpful.

It seems to me that there are LMTs who contribute here that want the profession to be viewed only as an extension of medical practice. While addressing problems related to muscle soreness and other physiological problems is certainly a legitimate and important dimension of the profession, I contend it is but one aspect.

Personally, I receive a 50 minute massage 3 times a week. Very seldom are there "deep tissue" problems to be resolved. My interest in a massage is relaxation and a sense of well-being. Such a massage is clearly sensual, as is any sense of caring and gentle touch. Many massage modalities are oriented to this type of massage, and any practicioner that fails to recognize the sensual component is a poor professional, indeed. While the massage does not cause an erection in my case, it clearly produces feelings of sensual stimulation. Since I also administer massage (in fact I massage my female therapist twice a week)I'm aware that others are stimulated as well.

With regard to the limits/boundaries between patient and therapist, I agree that intentional therapist-stimulated sexual release should not be expected by the client, male or female unless mutually agreed upon. That an involuntary physiological "event" can occur is well documented in various threads on this forum. The therapist should treat this, as most appear to, as "no big deal."

There can be, however, a special and trusting relationship between the therapist and client that allows for some form of sexual gratification. It may be against the law in some venues, it may be "unethical" in the view of the many in the profession, but it does happen - and often in some cultures. But in repressive/moralist cultures such as the US the client and therapist, in my view, would need first to be pre-disposed to such "additional" attention, and then have developed a deep sense of trust with each other. I expect that would be rare, indeed.

This deserves a lengthy explanation, which I am not sure I am willing to do on this forum, I do not know you nor what you are really looking for so will keep this short.

Sensual means: Relating to or affecting any of the senses or a sense organ; sensory.

Unfortunately, it can also be taken as sexual.

If you are merely looking for a caring touch, a relaxation massage is wonderful. If you are looking for something sexual, I cannot help you.

Thank you Dr G. I have had numerous massages around the world. All with varying degrees of openness.
And I do not mean sexual intent, but more free flowing.
I recently moved to Alabama, and it seems very strict and prohibitive to any "grey areas". My masseuse of 5 months (took 3 tries to find one I trust and connect with) is very nice, and says she is very by the book.
Her massages are very good and very relaxing but her touch is so much more.
She has mentioned giving and receiving sensual massages from close friends, and I would love to receive one. Not sexual, yes I know the difference.
Just curious what the difference is when asking for a relaxation or sensual massage? I've had full Lomi massage undraped and it was great. I felt like a noodle afterwards.

Thanks for your grounded answers.

A giraffe's trachea is formed by more than a hundred tracheal rings and is the cause of a unique breathing problem. Because of the windpipe's length, each inhalation brings in nearly two gallons of air that never reaches the lungs.(comparatively, a resting human takes in two gallons of air every minute.)

To counteract this anatomical dead space, a giraffe is equipped with a massive lung capacity of nearly twelve gallons. It has also been suggested that a giraffe's trachea may serve as a cooling device. As the trachea is filled with moist air, it cools the nearby blood vessels that travel up to the brain.

A little off topic, but can a giraffe breath when it is eating? It has to bend it's neck at such a severe angle.

Giraffe's feed by eating leaves off branches that do not require bending their neck down.

Mammals cannot breath and swallow at the same time.

I have had a few massages in Manhattan with happy endings. They are the best. Its like all the stress is completely gone when you leave. I have had some regular massages from LMTs also and they are good but they just don't leave you feeling completely relaxed.

Hmmmmm...been a MT now for over a year. 95% of male clients do get erections. I am unsure whether any spontaneous ejaculations have occurred. I have had men bluntly ask me to release their tension. I have had some put my hand on their male member. I have had some offers of an extra tip for a BJ or HJ. I've seen and experienced a great deal already.
Admittedly, all of this was confusing to me at the onset of my MT career. I was unprepared for the array of experiences that awaited me. I tried different approaches to test the waters and see what I felt most comfortable with. I found it interesting that the men who I gave BJ too often returned but I did not feel comfortable with the idea of my massage biz being turned into a place where men solicited me and I agreed to service them. The hand job men rarely returned, even though I consistently heard compliments on my technique. I found that curious. I told men to play with my boobs and I stroked their balls and they gave themselves HJ. Again, not many repeats. I found that the majority of repeats are those who's erection that I ignore. I genuinely do care about my clients. Their comfort and satisfaction with me and their experience is important to me. It is somewhat of a turn on to me when a man gets hard. I assume this is a normal response by a woman who is exposed to male sexuality.
Bottom line is that erections are perfectly normal. I now pretend to ignore them but obviously it's that pink elephant in the middle of the living room. LoL I believe that any professional MT will totally understand the erection and probably get themselves off at bedtime thinking about your male member throbbing on her table. I always drape my clients. The sheets are not opaque.
I tell my clients at the end of the massage, right before I leave the room, to take their time and I'll meet them out front to take their payment. That is what I've found to work best for me and my business. I am unsure as to why the men return more without any erotic touching? But that's been my experience.
I hope this is enough detail from a woman who has seen all sides of the picture.

It happens whether draped or un-draped, but it seems to happen more with the un-draped individuals. I have seen large, bobbing erections to a point that it's just about in my face, and some that even end up oozing a bit. I consider it all very, very normal.
I'm not sure why there is a choice of draped or un-draped massage.

Appreciate the honesty. Question, have you ever been turned on by looking at a customers penis.

I went to this one Asian massage place and requested a lomi-lomi massage. When I was asked to disrobe I just saw a wash cloth on the table. I was thinking this is going to be interesting. I was on my stomach first and then rolled over to my back. Since my penis was limp I moved the towel lower right to the tip. As she massaged me, it was growing and growing where it was sticking out. She move the towel to cover it but my sack was sticking out. She did not care. I guess this is what you get for using a wash cloth to cover. When she left, I finished. I plan on going back shortly. What an experience.
