Long time readers of this blog will know that I often have very excellent ideas (my talking Facebook App and Famous Person Bedtime Stories App are just two examples!). Why no one ever approaches me with a chequebook in hand to patent and copyright my brainwaves I do not know…
Anyhoo… today’s stroke of genius has been inspired by a few recent experiences.
Firstly I just finished reading a book about a sex cam worker. I don’t do non-fiction so this was no “Confessions of a Sex Cam Worker” type book. It was a mystery novel. Sort of. Which (nonetheless) made me ponder the life of sex workers – as one is prone to do when reading about it.
I also attended a yoga class on the weekend which finished with some partner
pummelling massage. And no, not THAT sort of massage – more the making-woodchop-movements-across-their-shoulders massage. Although our partners did have to massage our heads.
As I sighed happily I was reminded of two things I find very blissful:
- Someone playing with my hair or softly massaging my head
- Someone playing with my feet or massaging them.
And having shared this love with every hairdresser or pedicurist I’ve ever met, I gather a lot of people say the same thing.
And the planets aligned as I have come up with a most excellent new business idea: something akin to a brothel without the sex; or things-a-President-might-not-call-sex; or even any role-playing. Rather – a place one can go and pay someone to play with your hair or your feet for an hour or so.
Unlike the hairdresser or beautician where head or feet massages are a small part of a broader experience this will be ALL ABOUT THE MASSAGE.
Now I know some people have a weird foot fetishes, but there’ll be no sexually gratified squeals or proclamations permitted… just zen-like sighs of pleasure.
I just need to come up with a name….
* Extreme / extremities… get it? Okay, so maybe not.
Any suggestions re what to call this fabulous new house of pleasure?
Would you pay to have someone only massage your head or feet?
PS. If I had kids I’d possibly pay them to do it – if they were capable of 30mins or more at a time. (In my experience, family members get bored easily!)
