120 minutes
Longer is always better. That does not mean it has to be continuous. For me first 20-30 minutes are good for massage. Rest is for fun and play. I am open for mixing both sensual massage and play.
60 minutes
I answered 60 minutes, although if it is recurring exchange situation, 90 would be my preference.
120 minutes
Definitely 90 - 120 slow and steady builds up the sensations and relaxation
30 minutes
That's all I'mma need b4 I buss lol
60 minutes
90 is nice, but realistically for an exchange 60 per partner is probably the optimal time.
120 minutes
How could I put a time on that
120 minutes
5 or 6 hrs would be awesum.... he he
60 minutes
My ideal one-way receiving massage would be 90 minutes. I don't know if I'd honestly have the stamina to reciprocate a 90-minute rub if I had just received one, though.
90 minutes
I find when I give a massage and am really into it, time goes by so fast and 60 minutes isn't quite enough.  90 is about right if you can afford to spend the time.
90 minutes
While I can very easily go 120 mins to work out tension in the entire body, My ideal giving and receiving is 90.  I'll always suggest we each do one side, switch, then do the other side and switch.  After a straight 90 min session front and back, one of us is usually not feeling like getting off the table to work!  Lol
120 minutes
OMG... when i am receiving it can last and last
90 minutes
It takes 90 minutes to really work all the muscles especially if there are sensual elements.
60 minutes
Somewhere between 60 - 90 minutes is ideal for me.
120 minutes
I voted for 120 but meant to say 60.
90 minutes
First 60 to work the muscles , next 30 to enjoy, relax may sleep :).
60 minutes
! hour is fine with me, then one hour for exchange partner - if all the kinks are rubbed out in 45 minutes, I don't complain.
90 minutes
Definitely 90..!! Has to be more fun
120 minutes
Give and receive between 90-120mins, definitely nothing under 90!
60 minutes
90 Minutes is REALLY indulging, but 60 Minutes IS ideal!
90 minutes
90 minutes is the perfect time, one hour is to short, two hours is to long
90 minutes
90mins is perfect, 60mins just doesn't cut it for me 120mins is wonderful but I get so relaxed I forget where I am at the time!
60 minutes
Between 60 and 90 is good
90 minutes
90 minutes is the ideal time for a massage
60 minutes
For a regular full body massage, I find that 75 minutes is my normal rhythm, and I get to cover the main muscle groups, ending with some energy work that usually puts the client to sleep.Like everything else in life, if you are going to add "problem areas" or if it is a large client (and I have had some "giants" on my table), then, more time is required: Usually a 90-120 minute-massage when that is the case.For a trade, if it's got to be done on the same day, then 50 minutes can work just fine. I don't like to spend a whole afternoon doing a trade.
90 minutes
i always feel like another half hour would have been gr8!
120 minutes
When I give or receive a massage I think it's something not to be rushed, so the longer the better for me.
120 minutes
I prefer to get and give a 2 hour massage. When receiving it feels like an hour flys by. It takes me about an hour to relax and to start enjoying a massage. It's not often that I get to treat myself to some relaxation. If it's deep tissue an hour is plenty to receive.
90 minutes
Definetly 90 mins both giving and getting
90 minutes
My usual full body massage is 75 minutes.  1 hour is too short to allow any concentration on problem areas. But I do run over occasionally . . . .
60 minutes
60 minutes works best for me. clients to learn to complete the process of stress relief and relaxation at home after the session.
60 minutes
If only one end massage I would say 60 is great but if 2 way, 90 min would be fantastic
60 minutes
60-90 is my preference and I try to get a massage once a week.
90 minutes
If you ar going to involve sensual touching and more than 90 minutes is perfect. Any more and is too long any less and it too short
90 minutes
If Full body massage 90-120 mins,No rush, enjoy leisurely time.If the budget or time is limited, 30-60 minutes is Okay, the premise must be a good massage technique
90 minutes
I never really count, but even when I'm just giving with no recip it's about 90+
120 minutes
Who doesn't love a 120 minute massage. This gives plenty of time to work on areas of need and still take care of the entire body. On these 120 minute sessions, it's best to save a swap for another day.
90 minutes
90 It takes 30 minute just to get comfortable but two hours can wear anyone out.
90 minutes
I think 90 minutes is the minimum for a full body massage that includes a little extra time spent on any problem areas.   120 minutes is a luxury massage.  I love to get or give 2-hour massages but wouldn't want to exchange 2-hour massages in the same session.
45 minutes
I find 30 minutes is way too short and 45 to 60 minutes is a great time for relaxing without repetition on a full body massage
90 minutes
Ideally, 90 minutes of quality table time for all modalities except Thai Massage or Shiatsu, which both require an additional thirty minutes.
120 minutes
Love long  sensual and erotic massages
90 minutes
I prefer 90 minutes or a little more if I am giving. I also prefer if swapping we do it on different days. If you are into getting a massage for stress relief and relaxation then having to give one the same day after receiving one just ruins the benefit.
30 minutes
I never thought that a 90 minute massage would be good.
90 minutes
90 minutes at least,love 120 minutes and more if I can find some one that could go that long. Never enough massage! Love giving them and love getting them :)
60 minutes
I think 60 min. is just about right, but if the recipient would like to go longer I'll oblige, but no longer than 90 min.
120 minutes
120 is the ultimate. But it is better to do it in 2 matches. The receiver is too relaxed to give a massage after 2 hours of letting go-. Hard to back to earth. As professional Masso, 90 min is a minimum - especially for tao-tantra, but when I exchange a massage, I understand that not everyone is ready to do so. The important thing is the quality of our presence to our partner.
60 minutes
Between 60-90
60 minutes
When I give you a massage it will go for over 90 minutes. The extra time makes sense to me.
60 minutes
An hours good, time to get the knots out and chillax, gives enough time for an exchange there and then too.
60 minutes
In 30 minutes you are just settled and into their rhythm, 60 and your starting to enjoy it so 90 is best. 120 is too long and starts to feel like a waste of a day especially if you are swopping over that day
60 minutes
45 minutes feels a bit short. 90 minutes feels like I'm wasting my day.
60 minutes
60 mins
60 minutes
60-90 is the sweet spot.
90 minutes
i like 90 min,more if we both want
90 minutes
60 minutes just feels like a shortfall to me. 90 is good. I don't like to feel rushed - giving or receiving.
90 minutes
As I was trained to give a full body massage for 60 minutes, I rarely ever give one for any less than that, unless requested specifically. So a 90 minute massage is indulengent
90 minutes
I'd go for 90 minutes as a preference, if it's a professional. At 60 minutes you are really relaxing, so the next 30 minutes is icing on the cake.
