Unfortunately this doesn’t completely surprise me, those massage parlors are all over the place (at least where I live, on the west coast). I would bet I know some guys who have gone to one..

A guy I was friends with in high school took a trip to Europe upon HS graduation, when they stopped in Amsterdam he hit up the red light district and hired prostitutes every night. Lost his virginity that way.

Yeah, he went to a sex worker. It’s pretty gross.

OMG. HARD NO ON THAT ONE. I dated a guy in college, who was a huge gross jerk, but he was foreign (from Iceland) and mysterious, and I definitely let that blind me to waaaay too many red flags.

But the one that stays in my mind was the time he let it slip that he lost his virginity to a prostitute when he studied abroad in Brazil. And then proceeded to try and argue that this was totally normal and lots of guys lose their virginity to a prostitute – what better way to do it?

I have a funny story about that.  

There is a place a couple blocks from where I live that I have suspected to be one of those “happy endings” places.  

A few months ago, I went to get my hair cut at the salon in the area and my stylist is a man.  I’ve been seeing him for 7 years, so we talk a lot about everything and even talk about the neighborhood (he owns the salon and lives close).  He also has had shoulder surgery multiple times and has some chronic pain.  He told me that one day he had a client cancel, so he decided to go to the massage parlor down the street to relieve the pain.  

He said that when he walked in and asked about services it got weird because they asked him to tip ahead of time.  He’s in the service industry, so he thought it was strange, but he was like “ok, 20% tip.”  And they told him that was really low and he needed to tip more.  So he said, “ok, 25%.”  He had to go up to like 30-40% and then they took him back.  That is when he noticed the papertowel holders hooked onto the underside of the massage table. 

He said he turned around, asked for a refund and left.

I was so excited to find out that I was right…but also like ewwwwww.  Then I looked up the Yelp! reviews and was really grossed out.

I have never known anyone to get one of these massages, at least in north america. We’ve had a few PEOPLE in my area get thrown in jail for it, but they were singular and not a whole parlour. Very uncommon where I live. 

When I was in thailand, you could tell the real massage places from the not. The “happy” massage places had all the women hanging out front in “sexy” club wear asking if you wanted a massage lol.

To think all this time I never knew I was getting cheated out of a happy ending.

ladyjane123 :  Prostitution is legal here, so it doesn’t really phase me. 

I mean what two consenting adults do is there choice.  I’ve known plenty of guys who went to get various servies from prostitutes including my old housemate. 

Doing it while in a relationship is gross though.

Yikes – definitely not normal from a reputable massage practitioner. I’m pretty sure that a client could be charged with sexual harrasment if they insinuated that they would like a happy ending. It could be considered sexual assault if the practitioner did it. I mean, alone in a room together, naked or nearly naked, laying on the table, the client is in a very vulnerable position.

youngbrokebride :  The issue is that, legal or not, it’s usually *not* consenting adults. Not sure about massage parlors specifically,  but legalized prostitution just enables sex trafficking all the more, so that’s pretty messed up. Also if we want to get technical, I’d argue that it’s not really true consent if they’re only doing it to get money for survival (which is often the case)…that’s just taking advantage of vulnerable women.
