this was a little weird

    ok, I am sure that I am going to get hit from both sides about this, but I found it amusing enough to write about.

    so, I am in Bangkok, and I go by a reflexology place - actually part of a chain. very nice and clean, picture a room with glass walls and maybe 20 confortable chairs with people getting foot massages in each of them . about $5 -6 for an hour, very relaxing.

    anyway, so I sit down, and the girl who washes your feet washes my feet, and then my massuse comes, and it is a lady-boy, a sort of transvestite. maybe early twenties, heavy blue eye makeup, bra under her shirt, long hair, adams apple.

    so this was a little strange, i have to say. not that it freaked me out or anything, but it was a little strange. sue me, I am still a child of the 60's.

    its relatilvy comon to have a man, and its pretty uncommon to have an attractive woman massage your feet, so its not that I was expecting a young woman.

    my thought was, I don't think twice when I get served in a resteraunt by a gay person, and it would never dawn on me to be uncomfortable with a man massuse, so this shouldn't bother me.

    actually, after about a minute or two of weirdness, it didn't even strike me as out of the ordinary.

    if anything, I'd say it lacked the soft hands of a girl, and the shocking powerful blows to your calf muscles that the men give, so it was a sort of mediocre massage.

    It's OK to say you're uncomfortable, or felt "a little weird," afterall, not that many of them in the massage business here.

    If I could get a massage in the US for $6/hour, I don't care if the person is some sort of transgender crossdressing homosexual woman trapped in a man's body. (I think these all cancel out anyway).

    Matt,

    I'm barely attractive enough to be hetrosexual, I'd suck at being gay.

    Uncommon for an attractive woman massaging your feet?!?That's what would make it relaxing.In fact if you have an overtly gay person massaging you it only draws attention away from the massage.You see a dude with woman's undergarments on and you think to yourself "i'm being massaged by a guy who is fashioning the latest Victoria Secret bra!"

    For some, it really is unusual and sometimes even shocking. But though there are people who think badly of them and judge them right away, there are also homosexuals who really excel in the things that they do. Some are really great PR people, really talented entertainers and good beauticians.
