Have You Ever Had a Massage Go Too Far?

Last month, I told you about a new law in California that hopes to eliminate seedy massages by setting higher standards for massage therapists. I think we all know the "massage parlor" establishments from the truly legit ones. However, recently a friend told me of an occasion in which a massage therapist took it too far, brushing over areas of her body in inappropriate ways. From my perspective, an unwanted raunchy-style massage is unlikely at an established, legitimate location. But this got me to wondering if my friend's experience was just a freak thing, or does this actually happen more often than we think?

I found this while doing an internet search. I had a terribly inappropriate massage today. I was dozing in and out as I was very tired and relaxed. I woke up to my panties rolled down around my hips and the masseuse using his arms to massage my inner thigh and labia. I kept just thinking it really wasn't happening and that I was just imagining things but no. It happened. He quickly finished up and and let me get dressed. When I left he said, I hope my unusual techniques didn't make you uncomfortable. I called the board and the woman admonished me for not remembering the massage therapists name so I hung up. I've no clue what to do.

I have. I was in an extremely nice hotel at a really nice spa. I requested a girl, for safety. She was obviously a lesbian and she took off my bikini top. :O

I've never had anything that even bordered on inappropriate. How weird! My current therapist is extremely professional, courteous, and caring (without any trace of creepiness).

The only inappropriate touching I've ever had during a massage was before my current bf was my bf and that's how we segued into a relationship.

Only when my ex and I did an instructional couples massage at the spa. The masseuse left so we could have some "practice time"... let's just say we didn't practice the massage techniques.

oh yah and due to a lower back injury, he does my buttocks and legs, so it could go into questionnable territory, for some, i guess, but it's all professional and proper...he isn't doing anything skeevy

I went to this one spa that my sister referred me to. We had the same service but my service including a massage that was very close to my buttocks. She had the same guy and she said he didn't go that far with her but he surely touched my bottom and I felt weird afterwards. That was my first and last visit.

Yes and it was my very first one. The guy squeezed my nipples and told me it increased the pleasure of the massage and that although it feels funny, it's totally normal. I was 17 and looking back I felt like such a moron. I should have known better.

Physically I have never had anyone touch me inappropriately; however one guy I was going to at my chiropractor would comment on my body, like "Oh you have such nice legs" and it made me feel EXTREMELY uncomfortable. But I go to another guy now and he is very professional and appropriate!

I had a massage therapist come to my house every Wednesday for several years. Eventually she started getting too relaxed and would lean on me towards the end of the session (she did my parents sibling and myself-I could understand the fatigue-but still). One time in particular she was tucking the towel into my underwear, I felt she pulled them down too far. I went to pull them up a bit and she tickled (I can't think of a better word for it) my eh hem crevasse. WTF?
