    I've been giving great massages

    for the past 15 years, but because I'm not registered in Ontario, I have to start all over again. It's funny though, how unregistered girls get so many clients while unregistered guys get nothing, not even for practice. :-(

    I have to admit that I'm kind of bothered by the amount of people that make comments about "happy endings" to me. In the career path that I chose I want to be looked at as a professional therapeutic massage therapist and it can be hard to get that respect. I am not judging people...
