somehow I really am begining to regret this posting...quick need more wine!!!
Seriously though, to answer your first post - my job as a therapist is to make the treatment as comfortable as possible for the guy on the table. This means through everything from their initial enquiry to their arrival at the salon, the consultation process, the treatment itself and right to the moment they walk out of my door. I'd go out of business very quickly if I failed at any stage of that process, and I can honestly say that of all the people I've trained, every one has had the same commitment to customer service - no plans for revenge or secret sadistic tendencies (honest!).
I do get the occasional enquiry from therapists who say something like "we don't really want to do it but we keep getting asked for it so I suppose we better" - I won't train anyone with that attitude, it's not good for the industry and it's certainly not good for the poor guys out there who want to get this done. Fortunately for the male race, however, our fellow Geeks all have a desire to be the best at what they do and I'd trust my jewels in the hands of anyone on this thread (and no, that's not an offer, lol!!).
You'll be surprised how popular it is, though, especially this time of year with Valentines rolling around
