Where to get a nude massage
A great place to get a relaxing massage is obviously a massage salon. These can be found around the world. What the dress code will be completely depends from place to place. Some may ask you to keep your underwear on, some will give you a special outfit (as is the case in Thailand) and some will prefer that you are nude. If you want to avoid awkward situations, it’s better to ask upfront.
In Europe, it’s also very common to get massages at wellness or spa centers. These have a couple of advantages. Because those centers often receive many guests, they also have several massage therapists, each with his or her specialties. Therefore the list of options often goes much further than the default foot, shoulders, or full body massage.
An even bigger advantage of having a massage at a spa center is that the experience lasts longer. Instead of walking in, getting a massage, and going back home, you can spend half a day or a full day relaxing in the sauna, pool, or jacuzzi.
In the spa, the dress code for the massage will be the same as in the other facilities. If the spa has a no-nudity policy, you will be expected to wear a bathing suit during the massage as well. If it’s a nude obligatory spa, you’ll be expected to be nude during the massage as well.
Tips for your first nude massage
The idea of spending an hour butt naked on a massage table can be scary. Even for naturists. Because let’s face it, it rarely happens that a stranger comes this close to you at a naturist resort. Let alone that they rub your body with oil from head to toe. Lots of first-timers balance between the question “Will they think that I’m a perv if I just walk in naked?” and “Will they think that I’m a prude if I like to keep something on?”. The answer to both questions is “no”. The most important is that you feel comfortable.
It’s always a good idea to have a short chat with your massage therapist or anyone else from the staff. They will set your mind at ease and tell you everything you need to know. Especially if you mention that it’s your first time. This is also a good time to talk about your preferences and worries. If you have any specific pains, it’s important that the therapist knows this. If you tell these things upfront, you avoid disturbing their work and your relaxation halfway through the massage.
It’s also a good idea to have a shower right before your massage. The warm water will warm up your muscles and your smell might be more agreeable for the therapist. Keep in mind that those people need to touch pretty much your whole body and that they’ll appreciate it if you’re not sticky or stinky.
Maybe the most important of all, make sure to turn off your phone. This really is the last place where you want to receive a call. And it’s also incredibly annoying for the massage therapist.
