Troubleshooting Our Communication

Have I given you massage before? Are you seeking massage again? Have you sent several messages to me but received no reply?

A few times in the past few months, men to whom I’ve given massage previously have sent me a message, some weeks or months later, to ask if I’m available to give massage again. I reply to say that I’m available; however, I can tell that the man doesn’t receive my replies, because he asks again, and sometimes again.

When one blocks a number, one can easily forget that one has done so, because one can still send messages to the person whose number one has blocked. The person whose number has been blocked can still receive the messages, and he can still send replies. It’s merely that one’s own phone (or service provider) blocks one’s own receipt of messages from the person whose number is blocked.

Please don’t block my number and then forget that you’ve blocked it. I don’t understand the need for such a precaution in the first place. I understand men’s need for privacy, and I’ll never intentionally be intrusive. If you just want to be doubly sure of not being interrupted by someone, then just turn off the audible notifications and ringer for his number in his contact entry.

I’m looking at you, Carlos. I was glad to receive your message and would have been glad to give you massage this evening. I’m still looking forward to giving you massage the next time you ask, if you’ll just unblock my number, so I can reply to you.

Male Massage for Men in Baton Rouge

I give massage to men who are comfortable letting a guy give them massage. I serve men who prefer to stay in for massage, rather than go to a studio or spa, and those who need massage after hours, when everything is closed up. As I sometimes say, “I bring the spa to you,” but I like to make everything simple, convenient, and friendly.

Within the Baton Rouge area, since I don’t have to drive far to meet, I’m often available even on pretty short notice. And because I don’t have to think much of trip-related and car-related expenses, I can keep my fee low in the Baton Rouge area.

Men visiting Baton Rouge may be glad to know that, although of course the high-end and mid-range hotels are lovely, I’m happy to serve men staying in “budget-friendly” accommodations, too. If you have to choose between luxurious accommodations and massage, I hope you’ll choose massage.

Here are links to much that you may want to know about my M4M massage service; my phone number (for text, preferably) is at the bottom of the “About” page.

Self-Consciousness When Thinking of Massage

I worry that some men miss an opportunity to enjoy massage, or that they put off asking for one indefinitely, because they feel self-conscious about some aspect of their appearance. Some men, when they first ask me about massage,  offer me a description of themselves, giving me “stats” such as their age and weight. They even ask sometimes, “Is that okay?” I always reply, “Yes, it’s fine.” And sometimes, to help to put someone more at ease, I tell him that the oldest man to whom I’ve ever given massage is in his mid-eighties, and the heaviest man to whom I’ve ever given massage weighed 460 lbs. I serve many men for whom working at a desk or frequent traveling has made it difficult to keep weight in check. It’s all right; in fact, it’s more than all right. Men who have held heavy responsibility for decades deserve a good massage as much as any athlete, and I enjoy serving you. Here, have a massage.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! My availability to give massage on Christmas Eve and Christmas is pretty limited, but I’ll surely be available beginning the day after Christmas. Have a look at my page “About JD’s Hands, Male Massage for Men,” which includes my contact information at the bottom of the page. You can also find links to most everything of importance about me and my massage service in the “Quick Links” post. Send me a message to let me know when you’d like massage.

Warmth in Winter

Opportunities to give massage have held up surprisingly well in the late fall and the holiday season, and I’ll be glad if you keep me working hard all through the winter.

To help us both keep warm in wintertime, I warm my oil and my hands in hot water before beginning massage. One of the reasons I prefer to use the oil-based Biotone Advanced Therapy Massage Gel rather than a water-based lotion is that the moisture in a lotion evaporates and can make one feel chilly, while an oil helps the skin to remain warm by decreasing the evaporation of the skin’s own moisture. Some men receiving massage have asked whether the oil I use has something in it that warms the skin, and I think this blocking of moisture loss produces the warming effect that they feel. The first thing I do as we begin massage is to spread a thin layer of oil on the back and legs, partly to keep the skin warmer in the way I just described. Since I usually work on feet near the end of the massage, wearing socks or covering your feet through most of the massage works well to keep your feet warmer.

About the temperature of the room, please do whatever will be comfortable for you. You surely don’t need to overheat a room for my sake; in fact, if I feel a little chilly before I begin, the air usually feels just right while I work. Men often remark on the heat I generate as I give massage, so count on my hands as well to keep you warm in winter.

Here are quick links to more information about my massage.

A Testimonial by Mike

Mike, a man who lives between Baton Rouge and New Orleans and to whom I’ve given massage about half a dozen times, wrote the testimonial that follows. It sat in my inbox for a long time, and I think I waited before posting it, out of something like shyness. I’m grateful to Mike for taking time to write — and for accentuating the positive!

JD was my first experience with a male massage and has definitely outdone any massage I’ve ever had. His strong but soft hands and intuition on parts of my body that needed extra attention are second to none. There is no clock watching and he ensures that you are comfortable throughout the time he spends with you. A complete professional to say the least at his craft. I’ve never felt so comfortable and relaxed as I do when I’ve received massages from JD. The music choices are fantastically relaxing as well! Do yourself a favor and schedule JD for a massage experience you will not regret. He will have you in a place of euphoria by the end of his visit. I’ve had multiple massages from him and will continue to schedule as many as I can in the future!!

M4M Massage in New Orleans

Men in New Orleans who prefer a male-to-male massage may have trouble believing a guy’s willing to drive from out of town to serve them, but I give massage in New Orleans whenever men ask and I’m available. About four hours’ notice is enough. On the linked page is most of what you may want to know about me and my massage. Here (with a mild caution for content) is a gallery of candid photos of me, taken by a friend as I gave him massage in May 2018; it’ll probably load faster over a WiFi or Ethernet connection, but a strong LTE connection may be enough. I’ve collected a page of men’s praise and testimonials about my massage.

My MasseurFinder page for New Orleans also has photos and testimonials, and it has my contact information. For quick service, text is best.

I’ve learned that some men use the expression “gay massage” when looking for massage from another guy. Since I serve many men who don’t think of themselves as “gay,” I more often describe my service as “male massage for men” or “male-to-male massage.” But if you’re gay, and you’re looking for “gay massage” because you want massage from a guy who will serve you warmly and affectionately, you’ve definitely found the right guy. It seems good to say, too, that I’m glad to give massage to older men and heavier men. Just lie down, relax, and I’ll take care of the rest.

How Men Find a (Male) Masseur

Since I actively look for more opportunities to give men massage, I pay attention to information about how men go about finding male-to-male massage. They use many different expressions to describe male massage for men, so it’s important to know whether I “speak their language” when I write about my at-home massage service. Over the last couple of days, I’ve run an ad on a well-known website, and in just thirty-six hours, I’ve learned very much about how men find a masseur who specializes in man-to-man massage. Male masseurs for men seem to be quite few, so with my improved understanding of the expressions men use, I hope to do a better job of helping you find this masseur, at least.

Did it work? Read about my mobile male-to-male massage for men in Baton Rouge, Hammond, Lafayette, and New Orleans.

One thing hasn’t changed, though: “Gay massage” still appears to be one of the expressions men most frequently use when looking for male-to-male massage. and it even appears to be the number-one expression. As a term of convenience or “shorthand expression,” I guess “gay massage” is unbeatable. I just don’t want anyone to feel left out!

 

Male to Male Massage for Men in Baton Rouge

I give massage to men who live in Baton Rouge and to men who are visiting. Those with meetings in the Capitol area or attending events at the River Center Arena ask me for massage at the Hilton Hotel or the Hotel Indigo, which face each other across Lafayette Street near the river, the Watermark Hotel just a block away on Convention Street, and the Hampton Inn and Suites, a few blocks north at Main and Lafayette Streets.

Other men visiting Baton Rouge enjoy massage while staying in the hotels near Interstate 10 and College Drive, including the newly redecorated Baton Rouge Marriott Hotel and the comfortable and homey Richmond Inn and Suites, both on Energy Drive near I-10 and College Drive. On Constitution Avenue, men ask me for massage at the Doubletree, the Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza Hotel, and Hampton Inn. And near Interstate 10 and Siegen Lane, I give massage at the Courtyard by Marriott, the Residence Inn, and the Holiday Inn Express, for example.

Men who live in Baton Rouge or nearby, but who don’t have privacy at home for massage, sometimes reserve a room in an affordable hotel, just to enjoy massage service. I feel good that they think enough of my massage to go to that extra expense.
