Undraped
I don’t see any reason to be draped for sensual massage. For sensual massage, I am fully naked and undraped and I want my massage partners to be fully naked. I enjoy feeling my massage partners’ hands going anywhere and exploring every inch of my naked body, without any restrictions. I remain totally nude and undraped to give full freedom to my massage partners, without any boundaries and barriers, to get intimately involved with me whenever they want.
Undraped
I dislike draping I want to see and feel the body.
Undraped
I love being g naked and if anyone is happy to see I love to show them
Undraped
Whatever my partner is most comfy with.
Undraped
Always better with both naked

In all honesty. It does not matter to me either way. If the person I'm working on is comfortable not draped that's fine. The same if they want to be draped. It is all about their comfort that matters to me.
Undraped
Not shy when I get worked on. I've had guys dripping sweat on me, working my body to the core. I like feeling I am their "slab of clay" on their work table. They sensually molding out the bad stuff, opening me up to some really good energy, my body oiled up and melting in the heated pan of their hands.
Undraped
Undraped, especially mixing up styles I have found the transition much smoother.
Draped
I really care if my client wants draping or be undraped - whatever helps the client to enjoy the massage.
Undraped
Undraped allows you to see what you are doing and see the response the body provides with your pressure and different strokes.
Undraped
Draping impedes the natural flow of a massage.  I can see that it might be appropriate in the case of a medical requirement for localised attention but for a full body massage, whether therapeutic or sensual, undraped is the only way to go.
Undraped
Draping puts too many constraints, and prohibits smooth flow and strokes.Besides, it's one less item that has to laundered.
Undraped
Best way to give and receive massages is nude and undraped
Undraped
I prefer to work on an undraped body for consistent uninhibited flow. However, a towel can be comfortable for the recipient to keep parts of the body warm during times when the room temperature fluctuates. The decision is truly up to the recipient so I always ask before starting a session.  As for me personally, it depends on my comfort level with the therapist.

Good way to stat feeling comfortable

What ever the Person Wants.
Draped
I initially prefer to be nude but draped. Then, no draping depending on the comfort level of both exchange partners. It also depends on the room temperature.
Undraped
just like the feel of nothing
Barely draped - towel
barely draped then loose it.no cloth between sessions.
Undraped
Definitely undraped. Being a naturist for decades, I really enjoy wandering around in the nude. Human body is just a beautiful art of nature. Why drape it ?  Love to give or receive a massage in the nude and benefit of that sensual touch free of any constraints.

Partialy drapped using a small warmed hand towel gives comfort respect and awesome experience
Barely draped - towel
I like to start with a towel and see how things go
Draped
If my subject is new to me, I prefer he be draped to honor any boundary that he might have.    When it becomes in the way, if he has grown comfortable with me, he has the option to remove it.
Undraped
I like to start draped. This give my partner some security and warmth. It also gives my partner the option as to what is and is not within their boundaries. They always have the option of removing or lowering the towels as they feel more confident without having to verbalise anything.I like to let my partner decide.
Draped
I like to start draped and then depending on comfort level see if there is comfort in undraped.
Undraped
Nice to natural and nude.
Barely draped - towel
Undraped, but you have to respect the recipients boundaries.

Draped
In draped is best
Undraped
I've only had partly draped & draped, but I think I would be open to undraped with some.
Draped
Draping is about warmth and boundaries and respect. I dont care if a client is nude but i dont want them feeling vulnerable or confused about my intent so draping with towel is human, ethical and respectful and does not take away from a massage when done properly. Not draping in my opinion shows the intent is sexual and about taking not giving and does not promote true relaxation
Undraped
Prefer undraped as its far more sensual and relaxing, but of course what ever suits everybody concerned
Undraped
UN-draped is much more relaxing.
Draped
As this gives the client dignity and knowing you are not the seedy kind.
Undraped
I'm a nudist.  Why drape for a massage?
Undraped
Barely small towel as I'm not always thinking pleasure by I'm showing it. I like the therapist not to be distracted. Either way works. It does feel like teasing..if too uncomfortable I like it removed.
Undraped
Draping should be to the recipients comfort level, draped or not.
Undraped
I love nude sensual  massage. Like being nude for both giving and receiving. I turn up the heat. When receiving professional massage I like being draped so masseur can feel more comfortable and I don't get cold.
Barely draped - towel
partially draped could go to undraped
Undraped
What is the point if covered up? I want every inch of my body massaged. I have had everything from my ears to my scalp and love it. One guy used to spend a lot of time on my hands and toes and that was really relaxing.
Draped
I like to begin draped while warming the client and introducing contact and connection. I tell the client the undraped areas may become progressively greater as the massage unfolds; I simply confirm that the client is still comfortable. I am creative in the use of the drape to preserve some modesty for those who want it. It is always the client's choice as to draping and I am happy to accomodate. I know the question is what do I prefer. I prefer the client to be comfortable and well served.
Barely draped - towel
A little draping is good to help keep body parts warm, but as the massage progresses I'm happy without them, always respectful of my clients wishes.
Undraped
I prefer to be nude. If the massage is in a therapeutic, clinic-like atmosphere, i understand the draping. But in any other situation, the person receiving the massage should  be nude. Both participants should be nude.
Undraped
draping in my mind, only prevents the smooth flow of massage.
Draped
I always cover with a warm sheet first. Warm muscles are more relaxed. Unless the person prefers otherwise. If its a more full body sensual massage we discuss it just prior to getting on the table.
Barely draped - towel
I like to give the person l am exchanging with the option,it is important to respect you massage partners,
Undraped
I prefer undraped but am respectful of the client's preference.
Undraped
Much prefer undraped. Draping to me detracts from the massage.
Undraped
Undraped simply makes the massage experience easier and less interrupted.  But whatever the person is most comfortable with is what we will go with.
Undraped
Definitely undraped.
Draped
I like to begin with soft draping. It warms the body and brings a sense of comfort. As a massage progresses, areas are uncovered, a progressive ritual of relaxation allows the mind to shut down and focus on the areas being manipulated.
Barely draped - towel
Barely due to it sets a comforting approach for both party's , most of the time it gets discarded some time during the massage when both are consensual to do so ! What ever the client's are happy with ( respect) !
Barely draped - towel
Draped or not draped is not "my" choice but decided together and can change during the massage if OK ; only if OK together !   Isn'it ? N'est-ce pas ? Was denken Sir daran ? Qu'en pensez-vous ?
Undraped
Undraped is best
Barely draped - towel
Eventually we both will be completely naked, but I think removing the clothing enhances the sensual part of giving my massage.
Draped
As a student attending massage school the answer must be draped. For all the benefits of an undrapped body as a student and potential liscesed therapist that is the current option.  My mentors have instructed that draped always. The first slip from a client  is an accident and readjusted. The Second is the client's choice. I realise ME is not for service paid and as a student I Am not suppose to prefer one way or another and rather default to the client's preference . I'm sure things will be different post MBLEX and licensing   So for now I drape clients and since most folks don't practice draping uncomfortable either way.
Barely draped - towel
I'll use what ever draping you feel comfortable with, it's up to you.
Undraped
I find the massage is more consistent if you are not constantly having to adjust any draping
Barely draped - towel
Barely draped. I don't participate in sensual massage.  I'm happy to be nude for full body.  But would rather feel warm and comfortable.
Barely draped - towel
I find it is important to let the person receiving the massage to feel comfortable and not pushed. If they chose to unwrap then so be it.
Undraped
Definitely undraped. We are all adults and should be comfortable with our nudity.  Draping gets in the way and slows the flow of massage.
Undraped
There's something quite special about walking into my massage room and seeing a person undraped face down on the table.
Draped
I always leave it to the client to decide on draping.
Draped
Whichever the client prefers, draping is the default
Barely draped - towel
No matter the type of massage, my client's (partner's) wishes come first.  Only when they're comfortable will we enjoy the massage.
Undraped
i work exclusively on the undraped  body.  I fact clients are naked when they come out of the shower (with me)
Undraped
I don't care what type of massage I am doing. An undraped client allows me to go head to toe without ever breaking contact with them and my hands never stop moving on their body. Even massages where i do ROM. It goes without saying that their preference of draping is what I go with. But any draping alters the continuity and rhythm of the massage.

Ive never had one but i would do it anyway they want it but i want a nude massage
Undraped
Undraped gives complete access to the body. All that faffing around with a towel can sometimes be annoying. Although - I also understand some people's modesty as well as the fact that a towel can sometimes be good for keeping a client warm.
Barely draped - towel
Not draped is the best but a little cover up is sexy and leaves something to the imagination
Undraped
Easier to have full access to all areas of the body. Range of motion is important for a very relaxing massage.if the massage has a sensual elements then being undraped allows you to have longer strokes bring on pleasure
Undraped
Im very concious of my body but as i relax i enjoy the draping to be removed and allow the strokes to flow freely
Barely draped - towel
All is needed is a Face Towel Draping!!!!!
Undraped
During my first massage as a recipient in a renowned spa, 3/4 of the time was spent in draping. I thought, "This is a waste," and didn't get another massage for three years. I'm glad I gave massage another try. I prefer to receive a massage undraped, and would prefer to give a massage to a (consenting) undraped recipient, who would perceive that primary attention is given to him/her rather than to protocol.
Undraped
Trust and honesty are essential and not easily achieved without a sincere desire to share any and alldesires and expectations with a potential partner. Assuming that comfort level is attained, undraped and the erotic anticipation of ones imagination, literally, sends chills thru my entire body! So yes, "undraped"!
Undraped
Naked is natural; a small towel can be used for erotic massages..
Undraped
Both naked always works best
Barely draped - towel
I like the tease element to lightly draped we will get to undraped soon enough.
Barely draped - towel
It is all personal preference for who I work on.
Undraped
If you are participating in a sensual massage both participants should not have anything on their bodies.  We are celebrating our sensual side.
Undraped
Draping is inconvenient but I would do it if requested, preferably just the minimum with a towel.  We are all adult and know what naked bodies look like.
Barely draped - towel
Love to give or receive a  nude massage
Barely draped - towel
A towel will always keep the client warm and can be very comforting.
Undraped
I prefer no draping because it helps to create a natural flow to the massage. No worrying about if the towel is going to fall off or the full draping not being positioned correctly for the area being worked on. The draping takes time that could be better used massaging.
Undraped
I think strongly that since massages are a very sensual activity; what is the point in being shy about your natural body. It is more unnatural to be clothed than to be naked. Lets get free of the constraints of false modesty.
