An erection is a response to you being sexually aroused, but as all men know, they can happen at completely random occasions, and not always at times that they are particularly required.
During a massage, you are generally completely naked and relaxed, and the massage itself stimulates your skin and your muscles. This combination of a relaxed state of mind, nakedness and stimulation, creates the perfect environment for men to get an erection.
An erection during a massage can happen regardless of the sex of the massage therapist or the sexuality of the client. For example: a straight male, having a male to male massage, may get an erection, but that does not mean he is gay, or even gay curious.
All massage therapists are completely aware that massage can easily cause erections, so as a paying client, you have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed or ashamed about.
Your massage therapist will not feel offended, flattered or even care.
It’s important though that you do not make a big song and dance about the erection that you have. Simply let it happen but it will be appreciated by your massage therapist if you don’t mention it or start to try and maneuver it about – your massage therapist will be able to work around it without any problems.
It’s also important that you as the client, do not let the fact you have an erection spoil your massage service. If you spend the whole duration of the massage worrying about its existence or thinking unsavoury thoughts to try and kill off, you will have wasted the opportunity to fully relax and enjoy your massage.
Is there something wrong with me if I don’t get an erection during a massage?
Whilst many men worry about getting an erection during a massage, others are worried if they don’t get one, especially if the massage is with a massage therapist of the sex they are meant to be physically attracted to.
Unless, you’re having a sensual massage that is meant to have a happy end, then a massage can be a completely non sexual experience and there is nothing to worry about if you don’t get an erection.
If you are having a sensual massage and you’re unable to get erect, it’s often down to nervousness or “over thinking” it. So just try to relax and “zone out” – your sensual massage therapist will know what to do to eventually get you there.
Obviously if you are aware of a medical condition, or you have been diagnosed with erectile dysfunction, then your massage therapist may not be successful. In these cases, try to enjoy the experience for what it is and don’t put pressure on yourself or feel ashamed.
