I'm working on a course called "Personal Safety for Massage Professionals". It's largely based on a female perspective of how to protect yourself against male clients.
But I want to make sure the male perspective is addressed as well. That is, how do male clients protect themselves against allegations of inappropriate conduct by female clients?
Has anyone had allegations made against them? What were you able to do about it? How did you protect yourself? What lessons have you learned from the experience? And how does that change the way you run your practice now? Do you have any suggestions for other male therapists?
I'd love to hear your experiences and thoughts on this issue. You can reply to this post or simply send me a private message.
Thanks to everyone in advance.

The ideal being if the numbers are high its unlikely that anything happened inappropriate during thte session. And no fortunately never any allegations of misconduct.
Now Im not male, but I am open about liking other women.
I actually become verbal about this point since no one would be my partner. The teacher eventually told me that a female student had aprouched him and said that I was "making inapproprate touch" suffice it to say I was suprised by this fact.
a female student had later approuched me and said essencially the same thing even though I tried to explain myself it didnt help me.
Eventually the class ended and I didnt see most of those women again, although it was still a tramatic experience for me as well as the person.
