I have to assume that anyone who would have a problem with their partner being a massage therapist either a) Does not understand what massage therapy is, or b) is extremely controlling. Possibly both.

I am considering some general interest courses in massage therapy, and if I enjoy it, maybe a career change as well (this would be far down the road if at all). My partner has expressed that it would make him uncomfortable knowing that I could be massaging men, even in a therapeutic setting.

Just curious if this is at all a common thought for men, even if just in the back of your mind.
Would he also be uncomfortable if you became a proctologist or urologist?

I had a friend who ended up with his main duties being preforming testicular ultrasounds.

I was married to a massage therapist. She taught me a lot of very nice techniques and other women in my life have benefited from that teaching. That said, I will state that when she performed massages for clients, it was always clinical and professional. She never did house calls and usually worked out of a chiropractor's office (service was either standalone or part of a patient's treatment plan).

Yes, I am male.

When I first went in , I stated 'either'. Then after several massages, I started making appointments with a specific massage therapist, a man. His height (for leverage) and strength allowed him to more effectively 'get into' some of my muscles.

But thanks for the assumption.

There's always a possibility that she may cheat on you if your relationship is on the rocks because she has access to so many men. For example (and I'm being honest), I've had 3 occasions within two decades where the masseuse initiated and had sex with me on the massage table when i never even had that on my mind. I was surprised but i never turned it down. Three times in twenty years. And, no, i didn't give them any extra tip afterward because i didn't ask for it. and neither did they hint at a tip for what they did. it was a freebie!

Exactly.

I give my mother-in-law a spa gift certificate every year for Christmas. She's fit, but she's 71. She's not a member of a revival cast of Baywatch.

Massage therapist clientele is out-of-shape people with back and joint problems, elderly folks and people with diabetes with circulation issues, you name it. There are people with wrinkles, people with bad skin, obese people, people who smell, etc. All kinds of people get massages. There seems to be some sort misconception that if you're a massage therapist, you're doing hands-on with swimsuit models all day or something.

My husband and I both have spa memberships where we get at least monthly massages. We both get massages by therapists of either gender (though my husband has noted that while, if a male therapist is who's available for when we make our appointment, he's fine with it, but given the choice, he's less comfortable with a male therapist). Most of the time, I have male therapists, because I like pretty heavy-duty pressure, and in my experience, with that in my file, I typically get guy therapists. I have no doubt that there are female therapists out there who can throw some muscle into it, but my experience is that when I say "deep pressure," I get guy therapists. Usually pretty brawny ones, lol. We usually do couples massages, so we are together in the same room, anyway.

I also don't know where these people who get solicited for sex by their massage therapists are going for massages. Every place I have ever been to is run professionally, the therapists are clinicians and businesslike, and it's a health-related procedure. It would be like getting solicited for sex by my dentist or my dermatologist. Employing therapists who proposition clients during sessions is asking for the business to be shut down, sexual assault charges, etc.
