Whether you go for strictly therapeutic massage and platonic bodywork, energy healing, cuddling, gourmet hugs, or a juicier sensual massage, erotic massage, or something more sexual or playful aggressive bodywork such as wrestling or erotic spanking, the group is set up to support you in finding friendly men to exchange with.
Periodically we alert members to events and resources on related topics including male massage, enhancing intimacy, sexual healing and meaningful emotional connection and relationship, and other topics of interest to the group.

The word massage as used in this group refers to informal, caring bodywork and touch of the kind that friends share together. It does not refer to any form of professional massage therapy.

Consult a licensed massage therapist, massage school, doctor or other health care practitioner for these purposes. Any fees charged for meetings are for the use of meeting space, for supplies, promotional costs, and for the facilitation of meetings, educational personal growth exercises and men's group dynamics.

Consent and Safety
Events offered by this group are led by a variety of different facilitators each of whom is independent. The format of each event varies. Carefully read the event description and ask any questions before deciding an event is for you. Some events are discussion based and others may be experiential. Some may involve consensual touch and somatic learning activities. Our quality standards include the expectation that facilitators ensure that the event description matches what will actually happen at the event.
All activities are done only with your consent which you may withdraw at any time. All participants and facilitators are required to respect the boundaries and behavioral guidelines set for the group experience as well as specific choices of individuals they connect with. Some events have more structure than others. To create a safe space for everyone, our events are not for spectators, and so there may sometimes be specific behavior guidelines for those who choose to not participate in a specific learning activity which could range from sitting in a designated part of the room as a sacred witness up to and including possibly being asked to leave the room. If you have questions, please contact the facilitator of that specific event.
At every point within any event you attend, you need to take care of yourself. Asking for what you want, saying “No” or asking for things to be changed or slowed down is your responsibility if you are not comfortable with what is happening. Remember that no one can read your mind. They won’t know what you need unless you ask. That said, the facilitator can help you if asked and most often the session will include helpful exercises and guidance to support your being comfortable navigating experiential activities.
Meeting new people can be great fun, but at the same time we encourage you to do it safely. As would be appropriate with any community group, please exercise caution and due diligence about who you share personal information with and who you meet with privately, which you do entirely at your own risk.
