Looking for an erotic massage in Paris?

Erotic massage is a type of service performed as a sensual body rub. It differs from therapeutic treatments designed to restore vitality and relax aching muscles. Often performed with other sensual techniques in order to arouse a client, erotic massage can combine manual stimulation of the genitals, perineum and/or prostate. Sometimes referred to as a happy ending, every country has its own laws and terms to refer to the practice. With close to 500 salons and services in Paris that offer massage what do you need to know in order to ensure that you get the right kind of ending to your massage?

In this feature, we take a closer look at the erotic massage scene in Paris including some options for good salons as well as a glossary of terms that might be useful when making a booking ‘en Francais’. We also consider the legality of erotic massage and look at the types of services plus their associated costs.

Is Erotic Massage Legal in France?

Prostitution is legal in France but paying for sex is not as is any form of operating a brothel or sex business. Reforms to the law in 2016 make offering sex legal which is why so many massage parlours do so.

Erotic massage in itself is not illegal, but it is a grey area as to when and how the treatment constitutes prostitution. For the most part if sexual intercourse is involved then it is a clear case of prostitution however a hand job could essential be perceived as part of a ‘holistic’ treatment.

Technically, paying for a massage with a happy ending does fall in to an illegal act but there is very little chance that doing so will get you into trouble with the police. Raids are extremely rare and are usually focused on a larger criminal investigation such as trafficking or running a fully operation brothel.

What is a ‘Happy Ending’ Massage and How Do I Ask For One in Paris?

A happy ending massage is a treatment that is finished with manual stimulation until you reach orgasm. Known in France as a massage with finishing (massage avec finition), a happy ending can be delivered via a hand job or (less commonly) orally or ‘Spanish’ style (between the breasts).

Also available by the name of ‘lingam massage’, this kind of finishing does not only focus on the penis but also the testicles, perineum and prostate.

An erotic massage in general will focus much of the treatment on the art of the sensual body rub, heightening all of the senses via a combination of skilled hands and often the press of naked skin to naked skin.

Techniques vary by parlour and masseuse but can include tantric, body to body slides (nuru) and soapy massage. Some women will allow you to touch them during a mutual massage, but many do not tolerate being touched by clients.

An erotic massage in Paris is also called ‘Naturiste Massage Erotique’.

Asking for a happy ending is usually done with your masseuse directly as the salon itself does not take fees for this service; doing so would breach the law and set them up for prosecution as a brothel.

You can ask in advance how your masseuse will ‘finish’ to get an idea of what services might be on offer but you will need to arrange payment of a tip directly with your masseuse. The salons we’ve chosen below all have a good reputation for providing extras at the end of your erotic massage in Paris.

Types of Erotic Massage in Paris

There are many different types of massage available in Paris with some salons offering sensual and erotic treatments which may include a happy ending plus those that strictly provide a classic service.

Salons vary from professional studios to private apartments and can be high-end or budget. There are also a lot of Asian massage parlours run by Chinese and Thai massage therapists where you can also get a good manual finish.

In the absence of formal brothels, demand for erotic massage services is high in France’s capital city but if you want an erotic experience you should be looking for the following kinds of massage and not Sports, Swedish, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy or Hot Stone:

  • Erotic Massage (massage érotique)
  • Sensual Massage (massage sensual or massage aphrodisiaque)
  • Finishing Massage (massage avec finition)
  • Tantric Massage (massage tantrique)
  • Lingam Massage
  • Nuru Massage

If you book a massage at a salon that does not offer one of these services then you may well be disappointed at the lack of a happy ending. Be aware that many professional masseuse will be highly offended if you ask for a manual finish when they work for a salon that does not provide these. You will more than likely be asked to leave and, in some cases, the authorities may be informed.

In addition to these treatments, salons will offer their own menus which may include speciality services including:

  • Blindfold (Surprise) Massage
  • Light BDSM Massage
  • Water or Soapy Massage
  • Four Hands Massage
  • Striptease Massage

Lastly, you will also find salons that offer ‘naturiste massage erotique’ which is a speciality in the city and is often performed nude (or topless) much like a body slide.

Price of a Happy Ending Massage in Paris

The price of an erotic massage in Paris varies depending on where you book and who you book with. You should expect to pay a minimum of €40 to €60 for the massage itself which usually lasts between 45 and 60 minutes. If you are booking with a massage parlour then this fee will be paid at the reception. For a manual finish, you will pay your masseuse directly with her ‘tip’ being charged based on what is proposed.

It is also worth pointing out that the larger salons do charge a lot more than these rates and are generally only used by tourists or wealthy individuals. They can charge anywhere from €100 to €300 for a session although the service is guaranteed and usually in luxury accommodation.

A basic hand job will usually be €20 but can cost up to €40. Oral is more and can be up to €50. Some women will offer full service which can cost around €100 but you should remember that this kind of contact would be far more difficult to explain in the event of a, albeit unlikely, police raid.

Private masseuses who offer out-call services may charge extra for travel expenses to come to your hotel or place of work.

Just remember that all salons have a different approach and range of services available. All provide an erotic massage within the Paris area often including manual relief, but most do not provide full sexual services. The policy of most salons is that asking for full sex is likely to get you ejected from the premises. The websites will give you more of an idea of what is on offer and always be led by your masseuse.
