How Korean Massage Parlor Happy Endings Work

fantasy massageKorean massage parlors are different than Chinese massage parlors, which I reported on earlier, in that they usually offer “full service” as a standard service. A table shower, which involves you laying on a covered massage table while being soaped up and rinsed by your masseuse, is also standard – a bonus both for the client and the woman servicing him who won’t have to deal with any body odors.

How can you tell if a massage parlor is Chinese or Korean? For those who know the difference between the Chinese and Korean languages and people, this is very easy. For others, there are a number of clues you can look for. Does the spa have a website with pictures of the girls who work there in modeling poses (like this)? Then it’s Korean. Do you have to call to get the location? There’s a good chance it’s Korean. Is it open 24 hours, or at least very late? There’s a good chance it’s Korean. You can also do some scouting online, using this site and others like it.

How can you find a Korean massage parlor? You may see them while driving around, or you can check Craigslist and Backpage (but beware). You can also check some of the various blogs and forums online. The phone book may even be of some help, as a lot of Korean places are permanent fixtures.

Korean massage parlors exist in most major cities, and to a much lesser extent, in some small towns. The prices and service are pretty much standard. In New York and other large cities, customers typically pay 200 dollars all-in. In some smaller cities, they’ll pay 160 or 180. If a guy acts like he doesn’t know what’s going on he may be asked for a lot more. It’s much better for customers to be knowledgeable and prepared.

For a guy’s first time visiting a particular shop, he’ll call ahead to make an appointment. With a lot of places, this will be a necessity since the massage parlors don’t list their exact locations in ads or on websites. Customers will most likely need to call from an unblocked number. In the US cheap prepaid phones are easy to get and guys with discretion issues usually come up with a fake name. If a guy finds a particular woman on a parlor’s website attractive, they can ask to set an appointment with her (though outside of New York a lot of these places do not maintain websites).  They should still be prepared for rejection since some girls are heavily booked or rarely work. If a guy becomes a regular customer he may be able to set appointments much more easily or even just drop in unannounced.

When the customer shows up, he’ll likely need to ring a doorbell. There will be a secure door and a video camera. This is meant to keep out unwanted “surprise visitors” like robbers or law enforcement from just dropping in. Guys needn’t be afraid in most cases, as they can just smile for the camera and wait.

New customers will probably be asked if you have been there before. Lying in these places often doesn’t work, because unlike the massage girls, the mamasans (older female managers) tend to stick around for a while and have good memories. Educated guys usually say that they have been to other parlors before and have decided to try a new location, or they simply say that a friend recommended the place.

After entering the customer will be led into a room, either by the mamasan or the masseuse. The masseuses in the Korean massage parlors are most often much more attractive than those at the Chinese parlors. They will usually be dressed in a revealing nightie. These women come to the United States as visitors or live there permanently and rotate around any number of parlors, usually not staying in any one place too long. In the bigger cities, they will typically be very attractive women in their 20’s and 30’s, quite often with nicely shaped, large fake breasts and nice hair and makeup. In the smaller cities, the women will usually be less attractive, often older women that aged out of the big city scene, but still attractive enough and commonly very skilled at their jobs. At one time, these were the hotties in their 20’s working in New York and Los Angeles.

Customers pay either the mamasan upon entry or the massage gal as soon as they get into the room. The standard rate is 60 per hour, though it may be more in some places. Shops may offer a half hour session or they may not, but guys in the know always opt for the hour to show that they’re serious. They are also prepared and pay in cash. This money goes to the house.

Customers will also have to pay for the extras. In New York, the standard rate for full service is 140 dollars and has been that way for some time. In the rest of the United States, it varies between 100 and 140 on top of the house fee. Either immediately after asking for the house payment, or a few minutes into the pathetic excuse for a massage that’s provided, the customer will be asked what they want. Outside of New York, they will sometimes offer first timers lesser action like a hand job or blow job. This is to test out the customer. Clients can try to ask for full service, but they shouldn’t ever be pushy. Those looking for full service in the future would probably be better served by taking what is offered and coming back again. They’ll develop a level of trust this way.

Guys with experience simply give the total amount together with the house fee all at once, to show that they know the deal and are ready for action. Guys who opt for a hand job or blow job will have to negotiate the rate. They won’t pay more than you would for full service unless they want to go out like a sucker and face inflated rates on future visits.

If a guy makes an appointment with a specific girl, that should be who they get. If not, they will be given whoever is next in rotation. Some guys will ask for a “lineup” of available women to choose from, but this is bad form. It’s common in Korea, but there’s a reason these girls work in the US, often refusing to service Korean customers all together. This kind of thing is a big part of that.

Korean massage parlors are usually clean and neat. The rooms are always private, with walls that go up to the ceiling and locking doors. Some are subdivided so customers can hear what’s going on outside of their rooms to some small extent, but guys won’t run into any paper walls and curtain doors like they’ll find in some Chinese parlors.

Upon entering the room, the customer will be told to take off his clothes. The masseuse may stay in the room and watch/help, or she may leave. When the customer tenders payment, the girl will leave the room to give it to the house mom. The customer will sit tight and wait for her return. He’ll sometimes be given a clear plastic pouch for his phone and wallet. This is so he can carry these with you into the table shower and sauna, to make sure he doesn’t have anything stolen or have an opportunity to pretend that he did.

After taking off his clothes, the customer will be given a towel. Experienced guys may make sure the masseuse seems them naked before wrapping the towel around their body. This lets her know what she’s working with and helps relax her a little bit, keeping in mind they have a large number of things to worry about. If the guy is cool, she will be more likely to be too.

Customers will either be offered a table shower or simply led there. They put on the provided slippers and follow their masseuse to the shower room. Korean massage parlors are great at discretion and organization. Although a guy might hear another customer enter, he will probably never, ever see one.

Once the customer enters the shower room he will disrobe and wait for the masseuse to spray some warm water on the table. If he lays on it before it’s prepared he’ll not only look like a newbie, he’ll also freeze his nuts off! After the masseuse says it’s okay, the guy will lie face down on the table. This is the time she will feel out the customer. As she lathers him up, she may get into some small talk. The nicer the guy is here, the better service he will likely get later. After she washes the customer’s back (and usually his butthole) thoroughly, she’ll ask him to turn over. Sometimes they will get playful when they wash the customer’s cock and balls, sometimes they will not. Guys who get hard at this point may give the kind of signal the masseuse is looking for, but it’s not necessary. If an experienced customer is offered mouthwash they take it. That may mean he’s going to be allowed to kiss or more later. If he refuses, he will probably be refused too.

After the customer is washed and dried off, he will either be led to a small sauna room or directly back to the massage room. Sometimes they’ll ask if the customer wants the sauna. If they are busy, sometimes they will put the customer in there while they do some work in another room. If a customer does end up in the sauna, he simply waits there until his masseuse returns.

Back in the room the customer will be given a perfunctory massage. Experienced guys know not to expect any pain relief here at all. It’s almost unheard of to get a decent massage in a Korean parlor. But that’s not why guys visit them! Sometimes a customer will get nothing more than a few seconds of “soft massage” which involves the masseuse gently gliding her fingers on the guy’s skin to get him relaxed and in the mood. Sometimes, they’ll do a few minutes of half-assed massage. Sometimes they’ll get right to work.

If they didn’t get their supplies while the customer was in the sauna, the masseuse will often leave at this point to get them. They will have a small bag with lube and condoms. The customer will be told to lie on the massage table on his back. A lot of times, the more professional girls will already have filled their pussies with jelly so as not to ruin the mood. They will get the customer hard (and by god they are good at it, some guys have been amazed since they have trouble getting hard in other situations) then put a condom on his member. The customer may get a cat bath (licked all over his body, especially around his nipples and balls, and sometimes even his asshole), which is popular in Asia. They typically use Japanese condoms that are very thin and very high quality. In the vast majority of cases they will put the condom on the customer with their mouths, which can be quite an experience. They will then perform oral sex for a varying amount of time. Some will suck their customer and work his nuts with their hands for quite a while; some will only give it a few mechanical up and down motions. A woman who worked at one shop in the Midwest used to do her best to make customers blow their loads at this point with her “magic mouth” (her words, not mine). She wasn’t very attractive, with an older worn face and big, badly installed bolt-on tits, so I’m sure most did not mind. If other, hotter girls get an experienced customer close to coming, they can simply ask them to stop so there will be an opportunity for sex.

When the main event unfolds, the masseuse will get on top of the customer and start riding his meat. If a guy wants to go down on a masseuse, he’ll have to ask before that happens. A lot of guys don’t do this. Some genuinely appreciate it, but others may not. Fingering is usually not welcome.

Some girls will allow all kinds of roaming hands and kissing. Others are princess like and want none of it. Some treat their tits like prize possessions and will shy away from even nipple licking. Others will let the customer have at it. Guys in the know just go with the flow, as even a “bad” experience is usually quite good.

If the customer doesn’t shoot his wad while the masseuse rides him, she will probably lay on her back for missionary. The masseuse are usually quite good at holding the customer’s body with their legs and arms in what feels like an embrace, but is really meant to keep the guy from fucking them too hard and deep. Considerate and caring guys excel here.

Customers will usually only be given doggy style access only if they directly request it during sex. If they do that they still may be denied, though they usually are not. Guys who go crazy and start pounding away will not be warmly received. Many of the service providers who work at massage parlors are tight, even though they fuck a lot, and they don’t want to ruin the goods that they use to make a living or feel pain. Considerate guys can understand this.

After a customer shoots his last drop of cum, his masseuse will grab his cock by the base and pull it out. Then she’ll gently take off the condom and put a wet towel over his pulsating penis. The customer need only to lay there and relax. She’ll leave the room and come back with a warm wet towel to gently clean him off.

This will be followed by some small talk, and she’ll usually help the customer get dressed. Mileage will vary here, even with the same girl. Sometimes they want to lie together and cuddle, sometimes they want to get the guy out the door as soon as possible. A customer may be thanked and offered a drink or candy by the mamasan on the way out. The nicer a guy is, the better his service will be in the future.

It really is as simple as that. A guy makes an appointment, goes in, has a good time with a hot girl, and then leaves.

Korean massage parlors offer the most reliable service, often with the hottest of women, of any adult establishments in the United States.

    It sounds very similar to what you can experience in Sydney, however the Korean massage parlours there don’t provide full service. Since brothels are legal they operate separately to the massage parlours.
    Great info! Very impressed with the vast amount of knowledge throughout the whole site

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      So the Korean places in OZ are hand job only? I know you have legalized brothels, but haven’t had a chance to check them out. Any info on Australia would be great. Thanks again for stopping by.

  2. Pieter says:

    Want to meet and marrie Korean women!!!
    Greetings Pieter

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for stopping by. South Korea would be the place to go for that. Second best would be any Koreatown around the world. And don’t forget about the internet, which makes international person-to-person relations easier than ever. Cheers.

  3. Sydmick says:

    Couldn’t reply to your message from before.

    From what I’ve experienced and heard, the korean massage parlours in sydney only provide body slides, blow jobs, hand jobs and what can be described as simulated sex. It’s simulated as the masseur would sit on top of you as if she were riding you cowgirl (or reverse cowgirl) but in fact she would be finishing you off by hand.
    Many men have tried to get these masseuses to go all the way, with repeat visits & trying to pay extra but have no luck.
    It makes sense for the businesses to not offer anything they aren’t legally permitted to do, as the local governments do crack down and issue a fine or even close them. So I guess the business owners train the ladies well.
    But having said that, it’s just as easy to go to a brothel and get a Korean girl there. So it’s fine for everyone involved, we have good options available.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks so much for coming back and commenting. Better late than never as they say. This is all good info. I’m not sure why sex is legal in a brothel but not a massage parlor, but rules are odd and arbitrary like that pretty much everywhere in the world. If I ever get down to Australia I’ll put this all to good use. Cheers.

    Great summary of Korean establishments. My favorite place – don’t really know if it is “Korean” as the mamasan is from China and the girls are from Japan and Korea – is on 6th Avenue in Manhattan and there are several ladies there who are outstanding. Visited several places in NYC and on Long Island, but never was given a bag for my belongings – would be a nice touch. Have found that just abut every one of these ladies loves it when I go down on them – I always try to get them off before I come – that’s my fantasy. Also, I usually start out the session with a little gift (gift card) to the girl just to show her that I appreciate her being with me – they always seem very surprised and appreciative – works out well for me in the end. I’ve found that giving a small gift (box of chocolates, bottle of wine, etc.) to the mamasan upon entering is also a good move – makes for a “friendlier” atmosphere. Will check to see if my favorite is listed in your write up.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. The place you’re mentioning is not a Korean massage parlor. There are mixed massage parlors out there. Especially ones run by Chinese people. Korean massage parlors are run and staffed by Koreans, up to and including the house mom. Good info after. Cheers!

  5. Matthew says:

    HI there. Since first reading your blog about the Korean Massage Parlors in NYC, I’ve done a bunch of journeying on my own and I have to report that the market price on EVERYTHING has gone up. While in Chinatown, the house fees are basically the same 60 dollars, almost unilaterally, everyplace else has gone up so that places that used to be 60 are now 70 and I’m seeing a lot of 80 dollar house fees and even, unbelievably 100 for the hour. This is with no extras. In US Sex Guide that I’ve been following (thanks to your advice), the going rate for FS has jumped from whatever would be the difference from the house fee (ex. 140 if the house was 60) to 160 on top of say, 80! So you’re jacking yourself damn close to 240 bucks and if this is a new joint, you might not really be getting your dream girl. I guess the gist of all this is that prices for FS have gone up. I found a Chinese place near Canal where I got FS for 140 tip over the 60 House — so I did the standard 200.
    But it wasn’t a place like Asianflower where it’s all expected – you hand over the 2 bills and get what you get.
    Just my 2 cents.

  6. HornyInSeoul says:

    Is there anything similar to this in Seoul?

  7. happypunting says:

    Just want to to make sure I get this straight. If you go to a KMP in NYC and you dont like the first girl that comes out, you can’t ask to see another one? Thats the customs? Thanks very much.

    • rockit says:

      You certainly CAN ask to see another but it’s not something I would do unless I was already familiar with the place or the staff. There’s a good chance it won’t go over well otherwise and even a small chance that your request will be totally refused. There’s a reason many women who work KMPs in the states refuse Korean clients. They don’t like the treatment they would get at places oriented toward Korean clients, which includes things like line ups. Cheers.

  8. JACK says:

    a nice one, in Dover NJ

  9. uptown says:

    Question – After paying the house fee and the extra fee, am I expected to tip the girl at the end on top of all of that? I’ve only been to chinese places and the “tip” is the fee for extra services there.

    • rockit says:

      The house fee and extra fee is all there is. Tipping is obviously possible, but not normal or expected. Cheers.

  10. Josh says:

    Thanks dude. You definitely set me up for success. :) I went to this Korean place for the first time few weeks ago, I been to Chinese before but not Korean, the girl was hot but tricked me into paying full hour price for 30 minute session since I asked her the rate and was a newbie. Then I found this article and got my certification. Now I know what to expect. Thanks again…

  11. Sincere says:

    Can you give a little insight as to how to handle the phone call to make an appointment please? This part makes me more nervous than anything else. Thanks.

    • rockit says:

      Usually a customer would call and say something like “I would like a massage at 5:00 pm.” The phone girl would say “okay” and give the address of the place. Nothing more complicated than that. At some places outside of major cities like New York it’s enough to simply show up at the door. Cheers.

  12. Ryan says:

    Do you know of any good Korean places in Bay Area?

  13. Steve says:

    Excellent write up and description. There are a couple of KMPs in Houston and they are by far the best quality in girls and cleanliness. It is good for you to stress being kind to these women. My friends and I become regulars at one establishment and befriended the mamasan. No benefit in prices but the girls liked us and we had more freedom than the usuals. Alas, we are now married and the AMPs are not part of our lives anymore. Well, maybe not as much.

  14. coulson says:

    Amazing article very detailed. I was wondering if there are any good Korean places in and around Atlanta. Also if there are any,is cash recommended to card?

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. I haven’t been to Atlanta in years but there used to be some places around. Most places only accepted cash at the time. Cheers.

  15. dan says:

    do you know of any Korean massage places in Boston?

  16. Mike says:

    Is it weird if I as a happily married guy in the low 30s wants to go to one of the Korean places on the list? My wife can’t know, I m dying to go though.

    • rockit says:

      Everyone has to make their own choices but if I imagine many or even most of their customers are married men. Cheers.

  17. Henry says:

    Reading the article blew my mind, haha. I was wondering if there are any of these Korean parlor in southern California, do to the fact that I’m a newb and would love to visit one of theses places.

  18. Dan says:

    I’ve only had Chinese AMP hj experience in NYC. Kind of boring. I never get the full hour, and girls never ever get a firm grip on my penis. I guess since it reads high noon they just want to exert minimal touch and effort.
    So, upward and onward, onto the Korean side! How much do you think just for HJ with KMP? I want to start off slow, just exploring the landscape.

    • rockit says:

      If you read my post on how Korean places work you’ll see that the level of service is usually higher than what you’re after. Cheers.

  19. Old77schol says:

    Great work!!!!! I would like to try a KMP in Houston TX the ting is I am new in town any suggestions if you been over here tanks

  20. Kayzen says:

    hello Rockit, I was wondering if you know of any places like this in LA?

    • rockit says:

      I did know some a while back but I haven’t looked around out there in years so any info I had probably wouldn’t be accurate. Cheers.

  21. Kayzen says:

    Is there anywhere that can help me find places like this in LA?

  22. yolo88 says:

    Great article, been thinking about going for first time. But been worried about catching something, how safe do you think the masseuse are? Thanks

    • rockit says:

      I’m not a doctor or scientist and I don’t know if I’d be able to answer a question like this even if I was. All sorts of factors go into it like the health of the customer, the health of the lady involved, when the visit happens and more. All risky activities at massage parlors are usually covered but that’s still not a guarantee. There will always be risk. You can also die from an airplane crashing through your ceiling while you sleep though so nothing is really safe, is it? I can say I’ve never had a problem after visiting a massage parlor in the US and I’ve been to more than I can count on both hands and feet. Cheers.

  23. Dave says:

    Thanks for all the great info on this site. So here’s my problem. I’ve been to a number of AMPs, and have been serviced by Chinese girls. All good fun. I’d now like to move up to Korean girls, but I come very, very quickly, even with a HJ. Do these girls let you stick around for round 2, or do they move you out as soon as you have completed?? Thanks for any advice

    • rockit says:

      I’ve never heard of anyone being kicked out but there is typically only one round. The rest of the time can be occupied by massage, chatting, cuddling or something else. Guys who have a good relationship with a place or lady may be able to go again but it’s not common. Cheers.

  24. Andy says:

    Hey Rockit,

    Great reviews you have and love the site!

    I never been to any of KMP before but been to many others J and C places.. Would it be considered proper for asian man to go to KMP? I remembered a story of a friend that they were getting kicked out of one of the place in midtown, and also I heard they have reputation not to accept asian / korean guys.

    • rockit says:

      There are some women who won’t work with Korean guys but I’m not sure about other Asians. I do know that some Asian American guys go to Korean places, though I don’t know if they can get into every place. It probably depends on the people involved and the location. Cheers.

  25. Frank says:

    Hey Rockit,

    Great reviews and I love the website !

    I have been to AMPs but not to KMP and I am looking to visit one soon. In regards to money,has the amount increased since you wrote this review?

    Lastly, do you have any recommendations?

    • rockit says:

      I wrote the report to the best of my knowledge and abilities at the time of publication which was a few years ago. I have no way to keep up with each and every place to see what they are charging. In my experience prices have been steady at these kinds of places for several years though due to their nature I’m sure a few unassuming new people are asked for a lot more than the going price. I don’t make recommendations or suggestions of any kind on this website which is operated solely to entertain readers. Cheers.

  26. white lightening says:

    have you tried hiyako spa Frank ?

  27. victor rodriguez says:

    What about cleanliness and STDs? Should I worry about these girls? I got a hell of a surprise blow job from one!

    • rockit says:

      I’m not sure how to answer your question. Sexually transmitted diseases do exist and anyone who has sex is at risk of getting them.

  28. Traveler says:

    Backpage is a good search and there are others but keep in mind if you can find it Leo has too. In the area I’m in 9 were busted based and posts and ratings by customers because they name the place. I found first visits are hit and miss second ones if you ask for the same girl your treated better

  29. Traveler says:

    Average is 60.00 hour plus tip 40-50 tip gets service I haven’t been to any that offer FS I would say if you became a regular it would increase your chances. I have the best luck when they rub your hands return the hand rub a few seconds just rub her hands and say something like your hands work too hard. I’m sure most times they feel like a machine doing the same thing over and over. I like the middle aged. They are easier going. I’ve had younger and there is no emotion in it they look at the wall and stroke ya. When your done a towel and see ya.

  30. Wanderer says:

    I wanted to post my experience that I just had today after reading this thread. I went on blackpages and I found that a message place. I called and asked for how much the rates were. The woman said there were 2 women working and it’s $45 for half hr and $60 for 1 hour. I later stopped by and was greeted by a chinese woman in her 30s. I said it was my first time and I was led upstairs. I went to the room and told her I wanted the 1 hr message. I gave her the money and she told me to take off my clothes. She came back in the room and messaged me for about 20-30 mins. Casually talking. I was allowed to touch her legs and even her butt. I then turned over and she began touching my groin area. She asked how much I would pay for her to take off her clothes. She then gestured to me if I wanted to have an hj or “sex”. She made the gesture for sex which I knew was universal. hj was for $40 and for full service was another $100. I don’t know if I paid too much but I wanted to end it with sex. I paid the remaining and we went to business for I’d say 20 mins. What striked me odd was that she kept moaning as to make me climax and continued to ask me to climax (I guess to hurry things up). I ended up standing and being tugged. As I was tugging myself she was playing with me. What was really odd was that she was rubbing the top of my private. Right above my penis as if I had a “clit”. I don’t know why she was doing that. Maybe that was what she was “taught” to do? Nevertheless. I enjoyed it and left happy. Cheers! And thanks for the thread. Everything was accurate besides the money for the extras parts and the part where she was rubbing my “clit”..

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. If you went to a Chinese run place then this report wouldn’t be accurate. I did another post on Chinese massage parlors years ago. Cheers.

    • Wanderer says:

      I meant to post it in the Chinese section of the post. When I looked up the place it said that it was Korean. Would you happen to know anything about the rubbing of the “clit” part?

    • rockit says:

      I don’t know what kind of information you are looking for. Masseuses tend to be in the habit of massaging and that often includes rubbing the genitals and surrounding areas. Cheers.

  31. Marcus says:

    If I only pay the house fee / no extra, what I’m gonna be entitled to? Hand job? Less? More?

  32. DrCroland says:

    Cool article. I must tell you however, that after years of visiting these places I really can’t tell the difference between Chinese and Korean parlors. Also, I have never experienced one of these girls wanting to cuddle when the session is over. That would be something totally new to me.
