Don’t worry if you have not attended one of our events before or if you feel like a novice at massage exchange, as the more experienced men will encourage and guide you.
This professionally facilitated experience will focus on giving, receiving and enjoying touch and bodywork in a small group of up to 12 men. Although this event is not a massage training, you will have the opportunity to share and learn techniques from other participants. When we have a full house you’ll have lots of practice partners and the studio may be a little cozy. On the rare occasion there is a low turnout, you’ll receive more indepth personal attention and guidance from the facilitator.
Together we will create a safe, welcoming and nonjudgmental space where you can:
- Explore the healing power of sensual touch and bodywork
- Connect meaningfully through touch with other men
- Feel great all over your body
- Powerfully give and receive acceptance
- Enjoy the company of like-minded, friendly, respectful men in a clothing-optional setting.
- Explore what is possible when you fully allow yourself to feel pleasure.
The majority of the time will be devoted to exchanging bodywork in frequently rotated random pairings or triads, where you’ll have the opportunity to share bodywork and touch with other men. We’ll work on massage tables in a warm, safe, comfortable atmosphere.
This event is for men who want to offer nonjudgmental acceptance and respectful touch to all the other participants. Men who are not willing to be randomly assigned to partners or who have a judgmental attitude towards others should not attend.
Within a structured format, you will be supported in making choices about how you wish to give and receive touch so that it feels great for everyone involved.
This event is clothing-optional. While on the massage table you will be strongly encouraged to remove all your clothes. While giving touch you may choose to wear some clothing, however, at these events most participants enjoy being completely nude.
This event is designed to be safe, welcoming and healing for adult men of all ages, body types, sexual orientations and backgrounds. We will talk about and you will be able to negotiate to include genital touch as one aspect of your bodywork exchanges. While many participants like to include it, keep in mind that genital touch is not the focus of our time. There is no expectation or requirement of giving or receiving genital touch.
This workshop does not provide or include therapeutic massage or massage training as defined by the state of Massachusetts. This event is different because the focus is on conscious sensual touch between consenting adult men for the purposes of expanding intimacy, promoting mindfulness, increasing body awareness, reducing stress, and promoting wellbeing through nonprofessional, friendship-based touch. Put more simply it’s about the kind of touch that friends share with each other.
Join us if you are a man who wants to reduce your stress and build rapport with other men through healthy touch.
You will leave feeling uplifted, relaxed and less alone.
