In conversation yesterday, Kyle raised a question of etiquette that none of the etiquette books I've read (yes, I have read a few) ever addressed:
"When you're getting a massage, and the masseuse is rubbing the inside of your thighs, what is the right amount of chub to show?"To clarify, Kyle was referring to a normal massage, not one in a trailer with "Happy endings $100" and "All girl staff" signs on it.
Kyle was leaning toward a middling amount, on the theory that showing none would be insulting to the masseuse but that going full tent-pole would be intimidating.
When I asked a few women, all of whom declined to let me name them here, for their opinions, I found no consistent answer. Responses included
"None; if you want that kind of massage, go somewhere else."What's your answer to this unexplored matter of etiquette?
"None; ask them to turn up the air conditioning."
"Enough to show interest but no more."
