How do you like clients to feel about the experience when they leave?
Like they've touched paradise--and I hope I feel the same!
How often do you travel? Do you prefer to travel or are you more of a homebody?
You got the money I'll travel anywhere!
Tell us a little about yourself, if you were to pick something what would you like your clients to absolutely know about you?
I'm an unabashed HEDONIST!
Do you remember your first client ? Tell us something about that first day when you decided to be a Masseur!
I massaged his mole and it fell off--Oops!
A cool autumn day in 1989. I was tired of being an actor.
Do you consider yourself a successful Masseur?
How would you like someone that contacts you for a massage to feel when they leave?
Drained and blissful!
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do in your spare time?
Anything creative. Mostly writing poetry; also making beats, music, (Cubase 11 I just upgraded!) aand mixes. And pumping weights. Posing for the camera. Reading. Currently finished Justin Torres, "We The Animals." What an amazing writer.
Why did you become a Masseur?
See above. Got tired of smiling for phony producers with Trump haircuts. Hairdressing had too many chemicals.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to be a Masseur?
What distinguishes you from all the other Masseurs?
There's only one of me and if I can be true to myself, then I'm the richest, happiest, most serene queen in the universe.
How long have you been a Masseur and how long do think you'd like to continue?
Have you heard of "The Pleistocene Epoch?" LOL.
Licensed in 1991. "It's been a long, time coming; gonna be long time gone."
Some people say that being a Masseur is addictive. Would you miss your Masseur days ?
I love massaging men and will do it until I die.
Massage is one of the few addictions that is HEALTHY for you. Although when I go on vacation I do NOT practice! And when I'm not working--due to slow downs, no shows or taking much needed breaks, I'm forced to give up my addiction to clients and go "cold turkey" which is a good thing because it gives me a taste of sobriety and balance. In short, I try not allow massage work to color my identity.
The world now is going through a tremendous change with COVID-19. Almost everything we took for granted is gone or has been disrupted. I practice "Radical Acceptance" with a religious fervor in order to cope. Also the serenity prayer, listening to and making music, writing, meditation, dancing on the roof (with or without a wig on LOL) these are all supportive, self-nurturing activities I gift myself. That is essential for me to fight ageism, hate, negative energy, heterosexual entitlement, homophobic gay men, loud NYU students, neighbors who walk like elephants, etc.
Finally, it's an enormous challenge to stay grateful but it is essential to my survival as is also embracing fully "my gold and my shadow."
I hope to move soon.
Is extensive training necessary for a Masseur in order to be successful?
It matters to me. It probably doesn't matter to 99% of the men on this site. I have solid training. They have the Underwear School of Massage. May everyone live in peace (or pieces LOL!).
