04 Oct Avoid these 5 common mistakes
The 5 common mistakes to avoid when asking for a massage.
The reason to write this post is because many gay men traveling to Barcelona are falling into sometimes not too foreseeable tricks. Though not only in Barcelona! These tricks are useful for all cities!
Everybody knows what a mistake is. Though it’s only interesting when you see others going wrong. When the mistake is done by oneself it feels bitter!
So you want to be safe when choosing a gay erotic massage in Barcelona!
Feeling the trust of a reliable masseur will help you more than you thought! Because not having to watch for the unexpected will help you enjoying the sexiest gay massage!
We are serving many gay men from the United States. Also many Arabic men from the Emirates and other Middle Eastern and Asian countries. Not to mention guys from all over Europe!
So we have been told a bunch of weird stories. Of course not all of them happened in Barcelona! Tricks are working on a daily basis around the world.
Obviously the worst tricks are used in countries where homosexuality is a crime. This is not the case of Barcelona though! Homosexuality is legal here. Also gay marriage.
Besides, my massage services are lawful, legal and —should be— licensed —not all the guys are licensed. I am also fully insured professionally. There is no risk by visiting my gay massage studio. Either by enjoying my outcall gay massage service!
How to avoid mistakes
The easiest advise I can give you is common sense. Though how can you use your common sense in a foreign country?
- Suspicious? Pass!
- Trust your intuition
- No real picture?
- Meeting in a small unknown street?
If you have the least suspicion about a guy, step aside. Find a nice apology and go on looking for a safer option.
What else can you do?
The 5 most common mistakes
Because trust is something you earn. With the time and the relationship. You can’t impose trust. Consequently, someone who forces you to trust him does not deserve it!
The tricks to find a reliable gay masseur are only a bunch. And all of them are easy to remember.
- Professional website
- He has his own studio, also well located
- Clear prices for several massage options
- Service descriptions that make sense
- He answers the phone personally
- Able to charge using a credit card
Of course a phone conversation is always a safe way to check “how he sounds”. I know sometimes you’re not able to use the roaming on your phone. You can always use a local landline to call though. Or whatsApp.
Common mistakes 1: fake website
How old is the website? Do the pictures look outdated? Do the images seem to be stolen from other websites?
Nowadays a state of the art website means a lot. The difference between a professional masseur and impostors or amateurs is sometimes about this “small” detail.
The fact that the website is updated with recent blog entries is also a relevant detail. This confirms his prices are also up to date.
Check for some client reviews as well. Just a couple of them?
Don’t trust guys with no website. Especially guys on Grindr. Those are not professional, so any sort of surprises may arise unexpectedly. Apparently you might save a dozen euros, but… is it worth the drama?
On this same website you will be able to choose among different masseurs. Different ages, different levels of expertise, different limits. Smooth, hairy, tall, short, barded or shaved.
We work together because we know that every client has his own preferences. Another proof we are professional.
Common mistakes 2: no studio
Some of my customers told me they trusted guys with no studio. They had to go out their way to find themselves a place. So renting a room in a tacky hostel or whatever.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. An iceberg which holds surprises the kind you won’t like. It also means wasting a lot of time!
Check my gay massage studio. I am located on a very central street with 3 lanes for cars and one lane for bicycles. Close to Plaça Universitat. On the intersection to an also broad street in Gay Eixample.
Super easy to find! Metro station Universitat L1 and L2 around the corner. Also taxis 24 hours.
Common mistakes 3: clear prices
A price list is a must. Don’t assume masseurs have all the same prices everywhere. Because the prices in your country might be different. Higher or lower, usually different.
A bunch of massage styles and options to choose from are also proof that the guy knows more than just one gig. Massage styles are relevant. Also different time lengths to choose from.
Never trust guys who charge the same price for everything. Different services need different prices!
Desperation is forcing many guys to do whatever. I’m not saying they’re criminals though! Just giving you some advise. Just so you can lay back and enjoy a true massage!
Common mistakes 4: hiding?
Does he speak English? Is he able to explain clearly what his services are about? Avoiding misunderstandings is something we usually think about when it’s too late.
Sometimes guys contact me just via SMS messages. I guess they visited this website, so they already trust me.
Though guys who haven’t been able to read a lot here give me a call. Talking to me will help you finding out if my services fit your expectations.
“This guy was hiding until the last minute. No address, no voice calls, no pics, no fees. He just told me “everything will be fine, it’s all very hot!”
“I found out he was not the guy on the picture. Too late”.
Common mistakes 5: legal business
I’m running a legal and lawful enterprise. Not to mention I pay a lot of taxes! My bank account is linked to a credit card machine. So you also have the option of using your credit card to pay for my services. This is an extra only legally established businesses can offer and it also has a cost. Because banks in Barcelona don’t trust just anybody without checking the financial reliability.
More about erotic services
In many Asian and Arabic countries this kind of erotic bodywork is forbidden by law.
Because erotic services are not always seen as “just massage” but “something more”. Even in Europe the laws may vary from State to State and from city to city.
So there is not a common criteria. Blame it on governments and double morals of our Western Societies as well!
You can call me anytime to ask for more information. Please have in mind time shift if you are not in Europe!
I will be very happy to serve you!
