Don’t Stir the Dragon! – Ask Dr. Miro [What You Didn’t Learn In Health Class]
Dear Dr. Miro,
My girlfriend has been dropping massive hints about wanting a couple’s massage for her birthday but I’m not sure what to expect. What exactly is it? What if I get a hard on? I’d be really embarrassed, but if some random woman is touching my junk and I’m relaxed, how can I not get stirred up?
If you want her to happily remain your GF, book that couple’s massage NOW. Listen, all that happens during one of these is you and your partner receive massages at the same time, in the same room, by different professionals. What if you do get turned on? I would think that a sign of a successful massage. It is not as if this should be an unusual occurrence for a seasoned masseuse. So you get hard. Not really a big deal. Let’s reframe: you and your girlfriend are in a darkened room with soothing music and aromas, in a relaxed state of bliss, being pampered, touched, rubbed and… In this circumstance, I would think NOT getting slightly aroused would be peculiar. I know a masseuse who claims if her client is not drooling she did not do her best! Things happen. I can understand how you might be shy but let the practitioner gently know “what’s up” if your penis just happens to respond to her touch. There are ways professionals can squeeze a thigh to make your dragon go back to sleep without causing undo embarrassment. Bottom line: do not be afraid to try something new. Especially if what you are afraid of, is liking it too much!
Lust & Happiness,
