I’m going for a massage next week, for the first time in about a zillion years, and I’m a bit scared. Not just because I use massages as a replacement for physical affection, and I’m always a bit worried I’ll get confused and try and spoon the therapist at the end of the treatment.

I’m scared because I never know quite how naked you’re meant to get. I’m almost certain that you’re not supposed to take your pants off, but that’s not the same as absolutely certain.
