On Saturday, I had to go to a managment retreat for my work. While there, my wife talked me into getting a massage (paid for by my work). When asked if I preferred either a male or female therapist, I asked for a female, but there were none available, so I had a male therapist give me a massage.

There were two very interesting parts to the thinking process I went through. First, I preferred a female as I did not want a male touching my body and felt more comfortable with a female – why? I really cannot articulate a rationale reason. Second, why should I care what sex they are when it is purely a clinical event, much like seeing a doctor – of course, I prefer female doctors. Perhaps I am just more comfortable with females than males? Do others feel like this? Nonetheless, I enjoyed the massage and felt great afterwards.
