So sex acts are OK?

Can they just massage you until they need glasses?

Only if they can't see you coming.

My wife's favorite masseuse is blind (actually it's a blind couple - she uses the women).  She's Chinese.  It's common in China.

I don't ask her about the happy ending.

Being blind makes it harder for them to aim the unwanted kiss on the arse at the end of the massage.

If you don't stop it, THEY'LL go blind!

I massaged myself until I went blind.

Doesnt sound like this story has a happy ending.

Yeah, there's a blind person massage parlor about 1km from my house in Beijing. Of course I have to pass 3 that don't advertise blind masseurs/masseuses to get to it....

How do blind people know where to stop touching... things?
 
2018-01-02 07:49:57 PM  
As a masseuse, blindness isn't a handicap, it's a perk.  They don't have to burn their eyes out later after some Farker gets a massage.

I was wondering if the law was about privacy for the customers, or some such.  However, I like their reason better.

You really WILL shoot your eye out, kid. Both of 'em.

As you massage up a leg, you can't tell where the thigh ends?  It helps to work the outside the thigh first for better reference.

the court ruled that "the massage business is virtually the only occupation that visually impaired people can normally enjoy".

Wat?  About the only jobs that blind people can't do are driving, pilot and being a surgeon.  I'm sure there's a few more, but there's far more they can do than can't.  A few inspiring stories of accomplished blind people.

I'd assume it's so you can use a fake name and then the masseuse can't recognize you walking down the street with your wife.

What is worse for the masseuse, a sighted person seeing their client get a woody?  Or a blind person learning about the woody hands on?

It was standard practice in Japan for the blind to be masseurs/masseuses.

There's a great film series, that morphed into a tv series, about Zatochi, a blind man who eked out a living as a masseur and gambler, who was also a top notch swordsman and fighter.  (Think "daredevil")  He explained throughout the series that in Japan it was customary for the blind to earn a "respectable" living in that way as was customary at the time.

One of the best of the bunch was Zatoichi Meets Yojimbo with Toshiro Mifune reprising his role as Yojimbo the Samurai Warrior (his original role as Yojimbo was remade as "A Fistful of Dollars")

I knew a very religious guy who gave massages while reading from the Bible. He had to stop though. He was getting hairy Psalms.

lack of warmth

I've not been blind and touched people that intimately. K suppose you could help with that?

And not by blinding me... Oh fark username checks out.

They were called "Steam and Creams" when I was there back in '88. Was a good deal at 4 bucks for a steam suana, a scrub of your entire body in the shower, an hour long massage, and a happy ending. The bus ride back to the DMZ was very relaxing.

/So my friends told me

That's interesting. When I was in Worst Korea, I got a legit massage. At least, I didn't ask for a happy ending, and it wasn't offered. She was old and unattractive, so it wasn't tempting. Beforehand, they told me she was blind and asked if that was OK. I thought it was just a coincidence, not legally required. If I had said no, would it have been... different?

The streetwalkers could see plenty well, but weren't that great to be seen. Kinda like in the States.

But they can tell by the way you use your walk
