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.
