This section teaches about male on male massage and how to give and receive massages for men. It discusses how gay massage therapists can help clients relax, and discusses how to help your client experience extended or multiple relaxation as part of the gay male massage, with massages being with clothed or non-clothed male massage.
Gay massage therapists should perform a gay male massage while client is lying on a massage table. After preparing an enticing space, gay massage therapists can start with a sensual general massage before shifting the focus to your partner's popular centers. For male on male massage, this is best done through verbal or non-verbal communication which allows the highest amout of stress releif and relaxtion to be changed before the inevitable.
Gay massage therapists should take the time to create a sensual and appealing environment for the gay male massage showing that you care about your client and value pleasure. You may wish to put a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, illuminate the room with either candles or soft indirect lamps, burn incense, and turn up the heat to where one would be comfortable, especially for a nude male massage. Keep your oils and other supplies within easy reach, and cover the massage table with a clean sheet and blanket.
Put on your favorite music. Some male on male massage clients are more comfortable with a pillow underneath their knees, head, or ankles. If it is a first gay male massage you should ask client's preference especially for nude male massage.
When doing a massage for men, take a look at your fingernails and clip them if necessary.
When conducting nude male massage, the right kind of oil and supplies need to be used when massaging the entire body, especially certain areas. For massage for men, use oil-based, water-based, or silicone-based lubricants. Gay massage therapists can purchase special massage oils at massage for men supply shops.
When doing massage for men, it's convenient to have flip-top squeeze bottles for oils, and a massage oil belt. For male on male massage, it's a good idea to put lubricants in your hand before applying them so you have a chance to rub your hands together to warm them. Note to gay massage therapists: be sure any water-based supplies DOESN'T contain Nonoxynol-9, which is an irritant.
When doing massage for men, it is critical that you discuss and if the gay male massage includes the possibility of the entire full body experience before going ahead with a nude male massage. Situations when a gay massage therapist tries to shift a relaxation massage into an erotic realm for the first time could be uncomfortable and embarrassing if the gay massage therapist and the client have not discussed expectations for the male on male massage.
If it is a nude male massage it's important for the person on the table to always feel comfortable making requests. When doing massage for men, the client should feel free to mention anything that is getting in the way of his comfort and pleasure. Some male on male massages can bring up difficult emotional issues. When someone is crying, or in a similarly distressed emotional state, it's usually best to just be there for that person. It's a good idea for the gay massage therapist to reassure them that it's OK to cry rather than engage in problem-solving.
