For male massage, this is best done through verbal or non-verbal communication which allows the highest amout of stress releif and relaxtion.
Set and Setting
Gay massage therapists should take the time to create a quite, private and appealing environment for the gay male massage showing that you care about your client and value their privacy. 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. 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 guys are more comfortable with a pillow underneath their knees, head, or ankles. If it is a first gay male massage you should ask your clients for any focus areas they wish for the masseur to work on..
When doing a massage for men, take a look at your fingernails and clip them if necessary.
Massage Oils & Supplies
When conducting a 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 products. 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.
When doing massage for men, it is critical that you discuss an overview of the massage appointment so that the client and massage therapist understand what areas are important to cover during the sessions.
Any client should on the table should 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 relaxation. 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.
