}    I recently read the free magazines in Los Angeles and San Francisco, then
}I decided to finally look at (PROFESSIONALLY, OF COURSE!) the back pages of
}New York's own Village Voice and New York Press.
}    In Los Angeles (LA Weekly and New Times), there were pictures of women,
}along with their phone numbers.  What WERE they selling?  The ads were under
}"adult entertainment"--I guess they come over to your house and sing
}    In the New York Press, they're "escort services."
}    However, I noticed that in the Village Voice, everyone is offering
}"bodywork."  Bodywork, sure!  Like this transsexual is gonna come over here
}and take the dents out of the old Rambler.
}    Is it "bodywork" anywhere else?  When did "bodywork" come into vogue?

"Bodywork" is used a great deal here in the Land of Many Massage Therapists (and
a good thing too).  Instead of asking folks "What's your sign?"  you can ask
them "What kind of bodywork do you get?"  (Swedish, Shiatsu, Traeger Method,
Petrassage, Rolfing, Acupressure, etc.)
