Well, I'd say that codes of etiquette develop with incredible speed around any group activity.

Wait, if you're paying that much, why wouldn't you want the "happy ending?"

From the pages of The Chap:
Quote:
Sir, I recently sprained a thigh, and thus paid a visit to an establishment on the High Street named "Spangles Massage & Sauna". I explained my considerable discomfort, and was led to a private room and asked to disrobe. Presently, the door opened to reveal the person who was to administer to my ailment. It was a lady! I jumped up, apologising profusely while I fumbled for my tweeds. Roxanne, as she was named, seemed amused by my bashfulness and assured me she was a professional masseuse. Once she had begun her treatment, I began to relax, and soon the pain began to abate. It occurred to me that the ideal accompaniment to the treatment would be the comforting feel of my trusty briar. "Roxanne," I said, "is it permitted to smoke my pipe?" "Oooh," she replied, reaching for my towel, "You are a dark horse!" Twenty minutes later I stumbled out of Spangles in a state of shock. I consider myself to be a broad-minded sort of fellow, but really!

Pardon my rube-ness, but is the "happy ending" a common outcome (pardon the pun) of massage? I might have to re-think things. Although I doubt that the practice has put down roots here on The Plains.

Good question mate, ever been to one of those places where the woman walks on your back? I remember a Japanese place on 56 or 57th.

I'm willing to bet that Riga is a better destination for this...in fact, I'm going to take that bet as well

As a gentleman whose bride is a registered massage therapist, I can assure you that it is NOT an aspect of therapeutic massage. In fact, among her professional cohort, you would be immediately removed from the establishment for suggesting such a thing, with a possible phone call to the police depending on the vehemence of your request.

A person who will provide you with a "happy ending" is not a massage therapist. That person is a prostitute. Forgive my ire, but I have little patience for folks who mistakenly (or intentionally) conflate the two.

I didn't mean to insult anyone, especially you VG. I was simply flabbergasted by the apparent ubiquitous-ness of this "happy ending". I've never heard of such a thing in these parts.

Rube, forgive any misimpression that my vitriol was directed specifically at you. Defending the honor of a good woman and her honorable line of work, I've just become a bit irked at the overall tenor of this thread.

My GF worked at a established/respected salon and spa, and I was quite suprised by the frequency she reported a customer would ask for this.

Very true.

On another note, you would be surprised at how many places in L.A. provide the said "service." I have a friend with a preference for Asian women whom frequents a multitude of these 'despicable' () establishments.
