Is a Happy Ending Massage Illegal?
There is no law that one person cannot give another person a happy ending massage or any other sexual equivalent. Sex, touching sex organs, pleasuring sex organs, etc is not illegal, has never been illegal, and never could be illegal. But here is the rub (pardon the pun) What "is" illegal, is an "agreement" to directly exchange money for activity that the government considers sexual in nature. I'm not going to be specific, because the text of such laws will probably vary from state to state or country to country. Suffice it to say, if it's sex (of pretty much any variety) for money, it's probably illegal.
So how might the recipient show appreciation to a giver of a happy ending? Let's compare; In a relationship, one contributes to the burden of the construct of the relationship. By that I mean, if dating, show respect, be present, be a friend and companion, bear gifts or maybe buy dinner. In longer term relationships, the contribution may be the former plus a financial contribution to the rent or mortgage and expenses of a household. After all relationships can be quite strained if the bills don't get paid. As sad is it is to say, there are no happy endings for people that are flat broke. Life needs funding.
The same is true if the relationship is strictly pleasure. If a giver wants to give, and enjoys the relationship, but can't afford an environment in which to meet and interact, then that relationship will probably not continue for long. However, if one or both contribute to the "environment" or "utilities" as you might in a "love" or even "roommate" relationship, then the agreement is something more substantial. Simply put, the difference between legal and illegal is whether the contribution is considered as payment for sex or as a contribution to a relationship that may (or may not) be ongoing.
So if a person is a receiver, and they like the relationship as a receiver, it stands to reason that they should not have to be asked to contribute to the everyday costs of maintaining this kind of relationship. Be generous in your contribution to the rent and utilities and expenses of laundry etc. Then your giver can do what they do without being at risk of venturing into unlawful territory.
How generous should you be? Rent is expensive these days, a typical mortgage is $50 - $100 per day. figure power, water, internet, laundry supplies etc. A persons expenses could easily be a couple hundred a day. Just keep this in mind. If your contribution is overly frugal, your giver may have to discontinue the relationship with you because they are too busy at work. If you find a giver that you really like, it will be in your best interests to tend well to that relationship. Good givers are hard to find. (Here is what a traditional massage costs)
To be safe, a receiver should not offer an amount, and a giver should not request an amount. If you want to engage in sexual activity, do it, enjoy it. Just keep the agreement about sex a zero dollar agreement. Then gift your friend a contribution with no strings attached pretty much like you do a lover, or partner.
One word of caution, DON'T ask a Licensed Massage Therapist or any other for that matter, if they do "Happy Endings." That could get you arrested. You will need to find alternate methods for finding people who are Okay to talk about it. That is another article. Stay tuned.
