FBSM stands for Full Body Sensual Massage.
It involves a relaxing full body massage with oil, and not infrequently ends with a “happy ending”, either sex, a handjob or oral sex.
Whether there will be a happy ending or not depends on the particular establishment, the masseuse/masseur, the rules of the country/state and in particular how much you are willing to pay.
Origin of the term
Sensual massages have been available all over the world for over 2000 years, with known origins in India and China.
It is often paired with spiritual enlightenment, and is supposed to bring partners closer together. It focuses equally on the mental and the sexual components of the massage.
Spread of the term
Starting in the east, the sensual massages quickly started spreading to the west.
Although traditionalists aim to keep the spiritual part of the massage, most only get one for it’s sexual satisfaction, and instead of partners doing it for each other, they are usually given from masseuse/sex worker to customer, removing the special bond it was supposed to create.
Although it has spread to the west, a significantly larger number of such massage parlors are seen in the east, especially in popular tourist areas in countries like Thailand and China.
