The full service massage has a long history not only in Asia but also in western society. In the past it was used as a form of treatment by physicians and psychiatrists on both sexes. For male patients its purpose was to help release tension. For female patients it was utilised to induce birth, amongst other things. It is interesting to note that the use of this therapy led to the invention of the vibrator.
Although this kind of massage may now be deemed a solicited and unsavoury endeavour in western culture, Asian society would seem to be far more understanding of its positive health and societal advantages. For many this type manipulation is considered a relaxation technique rather than a sexual encounter.
Where to find a Happy Ending massage parlour
Bali is famous for its Happy Ending massage parlours. They are spread around Kuta, Seminyak and Sanur. They can also be found in the smaller suburbs and more out of the way places around Denpasar. Any establishment advertising massages may provide this service, but some will not. The best method is to enquire politely and to take any rejection with grace.
There are a number of larger Happy Ending Parlous a few minutes outside of Kuta. Any Taxi driver on Legian street will know where these are. For a small fee they will wait for their fare while they receive their massage. These large establishments cater for men.
Full service massage for women
It is rumoured that some of the female masseurs working in upmarket spas accommodate women. I have not heard of massage parlours where males administer to females.
Full service massage for gay men
The full service massage is also available to gay men in Bali. These men should look for the massage parlours predominately staffed by males or that have names hinting at the service they provide. One that springs to mind would be Banana Massage. The back roads around the Seminyak are where most of these establishments can be found.
Asking for a happy ending massage
A subtle way of asking for a happy ending massage is to enquire about a full service massage. Most masseuses working in Bali will understand this reference. For the less shy, another technique is to totally disrobe before the massage. This generally sends the required message.
The price of this service varies and anyone seeking a happy ending massage should always negotiate with the masseuse.
