In the process of studying breast massage across many cultures, have learned much about gender, intimacy, caring touch and sexuality. I have been able to reprogram my American attitude that breasts are only for sexual attraction and men can’t control their attraction around bare breasts.
A dear colleague, Barbara Helynn Heard, forwarded this post to my attention. It is a letter from a woman to Dan Savage, the sex advice columnist, detailing her experience with breast massage during a bodywork session. She left the treatment feeling confused that she may have been drawn into a questionably sordid situation, rather than confident that she received a therapeutic treatment by a sincere professional.
In Part 1, I shared a story from “The Stranger” blog from a woman who felt uncomfortable and confused after receiving breast massage during a bodywork session. Here I offer the world an idyllic “redo” where both parties are safe and protected.
