For too many years 'massage' (wink, wink) meant 'sex'. It was a quaint euphemism for prostitution. I've started getting massages last year when I was recovering from the radiation treatments and it made me feel so good, relaxed, and refreshed, not sexual, just good. Frankly I was afraid that a massage would turn sexual, that I'd get aroused, that something sexual would occur. It was a big step for me to be touched by another person. I had to trust. It's a difficult task to change the perception of some people. Try not to get upset about ignorant people, they just don't know any better.
And it's good to rant every now and again.
Take good care of yourself,
I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.
