Ok so I play on a mixed gender softball team. Most of us are friends, some of us are just mere acquaintances, due to ball, or the odd house gathering. At practice the other day, Bart ( not real names used) complained his back was sore. So Jenna, a mere acquaintance, never hung out with bart before, asked if he would like a back crack. He agreed, and next thing ya know, Jennas straddling Bart on the field, cracking his back. Barts wife was not there, but her best friend looked on, not very impressed, so I bet Suzy, Barts wife, will hear about it. Suzy isn’t a jelous person, but she is pregnant at the moment, and hormones can get pretty wild.
Anyways, just wondering if you ladies would be ok with this?
Personally, I wouldn’t care. But maybe if I were pregnant, haha, because I was a moody wreck.
ETA: I don;t know if this makes a difference, but Jenna, the cracker, is gorgeous. All the guys on the team love her because she has a guy like personality, with a feminine sorta touch. The reason I know this? All the guys say, ” Jennas the best!”, haha. Also, Jenna is super sweet, so I really don’t think she meant anything by it!

Hmm… standing back crack… I wouldn’t mind.
Straddling my man? Someone’s about to get knocked out.

Ditto to what @tranquility: commented 🙂

As I read this I thought, meh… no big deal, ’cause a good back crack feels amazing. Then I considered this happening to my husband without me around, and lets just say my tune changed. Women can keep their paws off my husband. (Disclaimer: I’m also pregnant… so that could have a little something to do with it)

haha, yeah those hormones, I tell ya. But seems like the concensus is that the majority would care, so maybe its not the pregnancy that swayed your decision. I do agree though, if you’re not around, and hear about it, it could get some blood boiling.

I don’t think I would care, although massage therapy is my hobby so I go around giving anyone who wants one a massage….cracking someones back is not a “sexy” thing….not sure why she had to straddle him though.

I wouldn’t like it. At all. But then, my husband wouldn’t allow it, so I don’t have to worry about that.
To me (and fortunately, he feels the same way), touching is very intimate. I don’t like to be touched by just anyone. I’m ok with hugs and a kiss on the cheek, mostly because I realize that that is how most people show affection. I’d have no problem if my husband ran into a friend and she gave him a hug or kissed his cheek.
But to straddle him and crack his back? Unless she is a licesnsed professional… HELL no.

completely agree with @tranquility but just to play devils advocate here… it’s just a back crack… it’s not something sexual. she isn’t naked (i don’t think – unless this is a naked softball team, hahaa!) she isn’t doing it to turn him on… she’s doing it because his back is sore. howcome this is so out of the question for so many of us?

I don’t think that I would care… but it isn’t hard for me to understand why some people wouldn’t like it much.

Hmm generally I wouldn’t care (granted I sometimes crack backs for people too) but I would never do it for just an acquaintance and I doubt I would be happy for another woman to do that to my guy while I was preggers.

I honestly would be fine with it. It’s not like she was laying on top of him.

haha, yeah no naked softball team here. If it were the case, we would have one goodlooking team though, with the exempt of a few, lol, jk. Anyways, I hear ya on the devils advocate part though. Anyways I guess its probaby all about boundaries, and the fact that the woman kinda crossed it.
Yeah the straddle thing is weird, but I stradddle to crack backs too ( gf’s, and fiance) becuase it is easier that way!

I agree with @tranquility:. Also, I think of how my SO might feel if he walked up and saw that happening. I would never want to cause even a shred of those icky feelings to creep up between us. I wouldn’t like hearing about it happening w/ my man, and I wouldn’t want him to have to hear about that happening with me.

well that is what a back crack is…
I voted other. Yes, I would have feelings about it, probably a little jealousy but it wasn’t a romantic massage, it was back cracking.
