International Orange not for Men
International Orange is for Women only--- Men need not apply. I made several phone calls to make an appointment with a male for a massage. I re- arranged my schedule and inconvenienced several others in order to fit my appointment into the International Orange schedule. It was my Birthday. I am not from San Francisco. I am a former international diving champion. I have tone and muscles that only a man with strong hands can tackle.
After several phone calls, I was assured that I would have a strong man giving me the massage,When I arrived, I was shown to a very small dressing room, removed my clothes and put on the appointed robe with a pair of sandals attached. Unfortunately, the slippers were both for the LEFT FOOT. I had to go into another locker to get a right footed slipper to make a pair.
I then went to the waiting area for the therapist as several people walked by with robes saying ""PRACTICE SILENCE"".
Shortly thereafter, a little girl, perhaps 5'4"" approached me to tell me she was going to give me a massage. I looked at her with dismay. After several phone calls, taking off my clothes, trying to find a ""pair"" of slippers that matched, the final insult was this little girl that thought she was going to give me a massage.
i was not happy as i felt i had been lied to from the beginning, starting when I checked in as there was no mention that my masseur was to be a young girl.
THE ONLY CONCLUSION FROM MY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE AT INTERNATIONAL ORANGE, IS THAT THEY REALLY DON'T CATER TO MEN. IT IS FOR WOMEN ONLY, BUT IF YOU ARE A MAN, THEY WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY ANYWAY.
Instead of wearing robes that say-""Practice Silence"", they should be wearing robes that say- ""Practice Honesty"".
Lastly, I have had massages in some of the best Spas all over the world. The sum of my experience at International Orange is that it is truly a rip-off for MEN!
A good friend of mine had a similar experience.
