Sensual Massage is one of the many massage parlors that now crowds out a small side soi off of Sukhumvit Soi 22. The same small alley is also home to places like Paradise Massage and the previously reviewed Exotic Massage Bangkok.
For whatever reason most of these massage parlors follow a similar business model and offer what could perhaps be best described as “out of the ordinary” massages. The most likely scenario is that whichever place was first became popular among punters and so others followed suit. Anyone who has seen several seafood restaurants with similar names in a row knows that such things are not uncommon in Asia.
Despite my best efforts I am unable to ascertain which of the massage parlors in the alley was the first or at least the first to offer special massages. Still I am able to give each place the once over and report my findings here for the enjoyment of the readers.
Like most of the places in the alley Sensual Massage Bangkok has a very small lobby. Upstairs and in private rooms to the back and sides there is much more room. The size of the staff can be deceiving too with around a half dozen women being available most times even though the entrance looks like it can barely hold more than two people.
Staff and management
The women on staff could be described as ranging between average and attractive in the looks department. I wouldn’t say any of the women working the place are unattractive but of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder and at a place offering special services it is often considering secondary in importance anyway.
The gals range in age from the mid twenties to mid thirties though most are around twenty six or so. They tend to speak a little English and some seem to be more into the kinky aspects of their job than others. Some are even categorized as mistresses which should give a hint as to their proclivities.
The older female manager at Sensual Massage is certainly no master of the English language but she is able to communicate enough to get the point across. For whatever reason she seems much better at communicating in English over smartphone apps like Line. This may be because she finds it easier to read than listen or simply due to the use of a translation app.
Service and prices
Sensual Massage has a long and detailed menu but customers can also go off script and request their own specialty massages. This is also the norm on the small strip that Sensual Massage calls home. In the case of special requests prices seem to be made up on the spot by the woman in charge.
To put things into perspective a one hour massage with a happy ending performed by hand or foot is 900 Baht ($29 USD) at Sensual Massage. A one hour body to body rub down with a prostate massage thrown in for good measure is 1900 Baht ($61 USD). A one hour cosplay dress up massage with role playing and a tantric massage happy ending is 2200 Baht ($70 USD). A two hour long tantric massage for a couple performed by two women is 4500 Baht ($144 USD). Most of these options and others are also available in outcall sessions for more money.
Sensual Massage has nice enough women on staff. They offer a very wide range of services that even include things like tickling and golden showers for those into that sort of thing. For that reason they fill a niche and serve a client base that may otherwise be under served. Or they would if there weren’t so many other places in the same street that sometimes go a little further in the service department. If Sensual Massage does have any advantages over them it would probably be their extended hours. They open early and close late.
