Men can be really stupid

Here's my Craigslist ad:

Extraordinary ACUPUNCTURE and THERAPEUTIC BODYWORK

I'm an acupuncturist that has recently moved here from the Seattle area. While waiting for my Pennsylvania licensing paperwork, I'm offering my acupressure and osteopathic-style bodywork sessions at a reduced introductory rate: $60/ hour

I can ease tight muscles and relieve pain with a gentle, intelligent touch. I have great success treating migraines, sleep disorders, back / neck / joint pain, TMJ, and anxiety. My specialty is musucloskeletal complaints. I have experience working on everyone from Olympic athletes to fibromyalgia patients. Techniques include Trager, percussion, Still, myofascial, counterstrain, muscle energy, and Tuina. FREE smoking cessation treatments available.

My new office is inside the Spirit of Yoga Wellness Center in Downingtown. Home visits are also available with an additional fee depending on your location. I live near Paoli. Appointments are available 8am to 6pm.

Please note that I *DO NOT* provide contact of a sexual nature: I am a professional healthcare provider. The keywords below are only to help people find me who may be uncomfortable seeking medical treatment from a more conservative office.
Please call 484-238-8127

Still, I get mail from guys listing their height / weight, asking what I wear, asking for a pic. WTF? These people need help that I cannot provide. Unfortunately I can't actually post that picture.

FYI: This is completely legal - there's no licensure requirement for "massage" in PA.

Yeah, Alia won't be seeing her 6:45 from last night again.

"You can move the sheet."

"No thanks."

"No really. I'm not an undercover cop...are you?


"No, but I'm here for massage, and massage only. I maintain professionality"

"We can be professional."

GAH!!!!!!

I think the appropriate response is "No, but I'm here for massage and massage only. If you're looking for more maybe you should leave." Then a boot to the head! :)

You're a woman! You want me to pay you to touch me! You like sex! You will let me pay you to have sex with you!

Ugh.

Gee I must be so naive. I figure when I pay for a massage that is all I get. Didn't know I was supposed to beg/plead/suggest for more :-)
