Just thought it would be funny and interesting to hear other’s thoughts on this.
My first high school love and I remained in contact for 15 years growing up. He lived in another state and every few years we would meet up and see if it was good timing. Never was haha. Anyways, long story short I visited him for the last time to “see” about 3 years ago in New York. While doing touristy bar hopping the first day there we had the most interesting and frankly gross conversation ever.
Goes like this:
Jeremy – Yeah I swim every day and my shoulders really get super tight so i get a massage about once a month.
Me- Oh gotcha. With a happy ending or no? hahahahh kidding.
Jeremy – Yeah i mean ususally with a happy ending.
Me – Ummmmm….. wait…. you get happy endings at massage parlors?
jeremy – Yeah, no big deal. I just go naked under my towel when i want one.
Me – Ok, so you have been doing that for the last few years?….
Jeremy – Yep.
Me- (Silently screaming in my head) So you cheated on your last girlfriend then.
Jeremy – Oh, well no.
Me – Yep another woman giving you a handy is cheating.
Jeremy – I guess so.
We dropped it. Guys i was so grossed out OMG. In my head I was like, I DON’T EVEN KNOW YOU DUDE. Lets just say the rest of the weekend was uneventful and I went home and cut him off completely and never looked back. Not just because of that, he also let slip he was already dating someone else when I came to visit. He was a jerk. But EWWWWWWWW!!!! Anyone on here have any experience with guys doing that? To me its the same as hiring a prostitute. HARD NOPE. hahahha
Share your stories if you have any good ones!!

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.

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.

hahahha! omg this is hilarious. Wow! Some guys are crazy!
Ok wierd thing is that my coworker who i am friends with told me about her girl friend who got a happy ending from… A MALE MASSUSE like 4 months ago!! WTF?!! I was asking my friend all kinds of questions. SO insane to me, even more bizzare a woman getting one imo. She said her friend loved it! I would NEVER want some random massuse touching me like that. hahah gross!!

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.

No I have never had someone bluntly tell me they have seen a call girl.

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.

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.
