    Far too broad a question to answer. Is the massage therapist a dick? I don't know anyone who could answer a question about something as big as marriage just by knowing what the person did for a living. What are the other questions you really want answered that you're not asking?

    People on Realjock need direction, otherwise this discussion will turn into one about the military, Whitney Houston and fall jackets.

    I too am a Massage Therapist, and to be honest I find this question insulting. Why not ask if someone would date a Chiropractor or any other healthcare worker. Unless of course you aren't really a Massage Therapist, unless of course you are actually a sex worker. I have no qualms about that line of business and believe it should be legal, but do find it harmful to my business when those in the sex industry use my chosen profession to advertise their service.

    Yes I would date a Massage Therapist, no I wouldn't date a sex worker who used the profession as a mask. Yes I would date a sex worker (after a long conversation) who was being honest about what he or she did for a living.

    I think you might be right...

    Should we make some "happy ending" comments or something here?

    As long as you're a legit massage therapist, sure what's the big deal? Agree with the above, what makes it different than dating a chiropractor?

    Unless you're not a legit massage therapist and you provide other services, then no I wouldn't.

    Masseurinsouthpas, I believe what you're asking is if any of us would have an issue with dating a massage therapist because part of the job requires seeing other people mostly naked (ie. just covered with a sheet), right? Personally, it would not prevent me from dating someone that I wanted to date, as long as happy endings are not part of their regular service.

    I have a few friends that are certified massage therapists. One thing they jokingly point out to those considering getting into the field is that not everyone they work will on is "pretty" on the outside. icon_lol.gif

    yes...yes I would. And I'd hide in the closet whenever he is giving a massage to a hot guy, creepily watching thru the slats...

    I would, but I wouldn't expect free massages out of him. I mean, it's like dating someone who works at a Starbucks then asking them to make coffee when they are home. They've been making coffee all day long and are probably sick to death of it.

    If I weren't betrothed, a skilled RMT would jump to the front of the line. And hell, yes - I would expect free massages at least every other day.

    I would date my massage therapist/personal trainer in an instant, if he was gay and I was single. He's one of the hottest men I've ever met, and he's a really cool guy... though I've wondered more than once if his friendliness-- the encouragement and the friendly teasing and the laughing at my sense of humour-- isn't at least partly because I'm paying for every minute that we spend together. icon_confused.gif Sometimes it's actually a bit of a drag paying attention and being aware of context 'n stuff.

    I did date a massage therapist. And I almost never got a massage from him -- it was the last thing he generally wanted to do after working on other people all day. The few I did get were phenomenal though.

    This is like questioning whether or not your profession is a legitimate one. I don't get it. Massage therapy helps a lot of people with pain, stress, recovery from strenuous activity etc. I think that when you get into the "happy endings" on the clock that is where the "therapist" loses credibility as a professional. Then the question one would want to ask would be whether or not someone would date a hooker who only charges for the rubdown, not an actual Massage Therapist.

    I'm actually thinking about working towards getting my license. Massage therapy has helped me a lot. However, I probably wouldn't provide massages to my lover if it was an expectation. Coming home from a long day of work, to work some more on a demanding partner? No thanks. A little bit gratitude and humility probably would go a long way though.

    thank you for all the responses, for what I read most guys think of massage therapists as sexual workers, I started doing massages at the age of 9 because a friend of mine had cancer and my hands seemed to relief her pain.
    I then realized I was a natural and touching people would make them feel better.
    For that guy dating a MT because he can get a happy ending?
    that's absolutely stupid.
    You can get that from anyone.
    for the other one getting massages for free?
    then you are also an idiot and have no respect for yourself.
    Conclusion , it does not matter what your profession is, anyone can cheat and anyone is exposed to sex nowadays, just take a look at 1000s of profiles on here, most of the pics are dick and ass shots. I wonder what they do for a living?

    And to answer the question, yes. Though he would soon become annoyed with me because I am a mess. Severe muscle adhesions from trauma in a car wreck and an injury induced TMJ from the same. He would feel like he never left work.icon_lol.gif

    thank you for your response, I don't question myself as a massage therapist, I wanted to know what guys think about dating one.
    As you can tell most people look at MT as sexual providers discrediting the legitimate work of those giving therapeutic healing, there is a lot of misinformation and a lot to learn

    No sorry, I only date guys that are truck drivers, professional shark wrestlers, food tasters or regional managers for paper companies. Or guys that live in Australia.
