Happy Monday, my sweets! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. To celebrate Mother’s Day, I booked an afternoon at the spa for myself and my mom— complete with champagne, massages, and big jacuzzi tubs. Everything about the day was perfect, except for one thing: I had a male masseuse.
I’ve had my fair share of massages over the past ten years, and I always make sure to request a woman because that’s what I’m used to. There must have been a hiccup in communication at the spa yesterday because in walked a 20-something man to take me into the massage room.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being massaged by a man, but for me personally, I became very aware of the fact that I was practically naked in a dimly lit room with a guy that wasn’t my husband. It just felt… wrong. The masseuse was very professional and totally great at his job, but I was never fully able to relax— such a bummer!
I’m curious how you ladies feel about this, and if you think that being married makes a difference.
Would you get a massage from a male masseuse? Does it make a difference if you’re married or single? Do any of you prefer to be massaged by a man? Share your thoughts in the comments!
