I'm only interested in local people
Looking mature local
Tried but no success
Not an easy subject I guess accommodation is an issue as usual
Some success
As one member, 400 miles from me, commented, he had a better chance exchanging with me than the guy down the block. Many members just do not respond to my e-mails as I often hear the same from other members. Some members send me e-mails that end up just wanting porn pictures or they just want to connect on face time, etc, to have an encounter. Exchanging locally or on the road are equally challenging. Just keep trying.
Tried but no success
very little success in connecting at all. A lot of rude members
Tried but no success
only one time as person was able to host; generally, have not found any exchanges will traveling as not everyone can host.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I haven't tried, but I suspect most of my exchanges will qualify as "traveling" based on the amount of inactivity that I see locally.
Very successful
Whatever energy you exude, you receive back
Some success
When moving house I was in a different area from home and did have a couple of meetings with excelent results as one choose to be a regular and has been for nearly a year. You don't know until you try!
Some success
I've made some connections, it just some guys are too much trouble to coordinate or won't respond but others I've had success that on follow up visits to those cities I've been able to exchange again.
Tried but no success
Traveling or otherwise, not any interest at all .
Very successful
I'm new to the site, but I was recently staying out of town for a week and reached out to a few folks that were local and made a connection. I had a very good experience - a very nice individual came by and we had a great exchange. It sounded too good to be true, but it worked. Another one of the individuals I contacted was headed out of town the day after I contacted him - otherwise, we would've met up too.
Some success
Would like more people if into massage
Tried but no success
Difficult to coordinate times.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
Open to any opportunity
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
But then again, I have not traveled much for some years.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
Good idea...
Tried but no success
Difficult to even get a response!
Tried but no success
Tried in Hawaii no response
Some success
I'm very happy with my first Mexican exchange partner but it's a two hour drive between us. Not exactly ideal. Maybe a travel link would be useful. Could be in the forum? You're doing a great job in here. Thanks.
Very successful
Drove 4.5 hrs and linked up with someone when I was doing business in that town.
Some success
Would like more exchanges
Tried but no success
Very disappointed :(
MassageExchange CommentYou've only e-mailed 4 members in the past 6 months (!) so I can understand your lack of connecting. Read 'Tips for Success' (gold colored button) on your home page.
Tried but no success
I’m not a paid member so it makes hard to respond to any emails. So no success and pretty much a waste of time using this site. Very disappointed :(
MassageExchange CommentYou've e-mailed zero (!) members in the past 12 months so I can understand your lack of connecting. Read 'Tips for Success' (gold colored button) on your home page

Had a couple excellent exchanges while traveling.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I haven't connected with any other people, I don't travel much
Some success
This helps a lot. Love the service. Mike
Some success
I find hotel bars a great place to offer my services and more
I'm only interested in local people
Have done a sucessful meet and greet. Have not been involved in anexchange yet.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
could be very useful more so to visters in unknown surroundings
Tried but no success
Very rare to get any response from anyone. I would think a polite decline would be expected rather than people just not answering at all…
Some success
Success in the U.S. but limited success in Latin America
Tried but no success
I've tried contacting prospective clients without success. Maybe they think I am too old. But my Chinese training is ageless. I would love to share my gift of giving a good massage.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
No travel during this pandemic.

Tried but no success
Many potential exchange inquires do not respond when the prospects of planning become more serious. I travel extensively, and would like serious exchange conversations and planning.   After all of that, of course, a real massage exchange would be rewarding regardless of the quality of the massage itself  !
Very successful
I'm the one offering massages. There are always people in need.
Some success
Most act like massage is some big secret and they cant let there wife or partner find out.when they cant host means there hiding something so I dont trust them
Some success
Time consuming to organise , and hasn't always aligned to result in a swap. Some great swaps though and worth persisting with.
Some success
Have enjoyed several massages while traveling although it can be a bit time consuming to setup.
Some success
I had some success travelling to other Australian cities, that was pre-covid. Reciprocal always.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I'd be willing to try it. Could be fun!
Some success
Met a very nice soul a freind for ever a shoulder a touchy lusty feel want need type like me honest and caring lady
Some success
it hard to find someone good. older men tend to know but are not very strong. younger men don't know much but are very strong...
I'm only interested in local people
So far nothing worked for me
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
willing to try, later.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!

Tried but no success
Nothing worked for me till date
Tried but no success
Nothing worked for me as yet
I'm only interested in local people
i dont really have time nor money to travel very far
Tried but no success
I personally met only one person and got stood up by another, both just recently and the one person I did meet really enjoyed her massage though
Tried but no success
Very few seem interested if travelling. They seem sceptical of you.
Some success
I always have a hotel room. Seems most like the anonymity of that.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
My gift of massage comes from the Lord . I am a Christian but believe massage is essential to our well being . Mutual massage is a great way to share my gift I have oil warmers facial massage tools use coconut oil and warm massage cream I have my own table you can come to my place
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I would be interested in trading massages with you. Maybe when you are in my area, hope we could do that.
Some success
Exchange in Hawaii didn't turn up. Forgot?? Exchanges in other cities of New Zealand were very successful
Some success
I have started to find some success!
Some success
Varies by the area and how many subscribers there are in the vicinity.
Some success
If I have ample lead time I have had great success, it is when I have a short lead time and little time in the place I am visiting that I have not has success. It has been wonderful to be visiting somewhere and get to enjoy others through massage sessions.
Tried but no success
Exchanged info and both seemed interested but were not able to actually meet
Some success
I found that being in the same location for an extended amount of time makes it better. but with the covid pandemic I haven't even tried .
Tried but no success
Almost impossible to set up any kind of meeting that is mutually agreeable.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
Most people are so overly-cautious anyway it's hard enough to make a local connection, even though they **joined a site to exchange massages**, much less with someone traveling, so I can't imagine it would be easy.
Tried but no success
Tried 4 different times with no luck
Some success
Have had success, the trick is give plenty of notice and be able to host. On a recent trip I had 6 responses ( pretty good!) but only ended up with one massage cause I couldn't host. ' Can't host' is a major obstacle when travelling apparently.
Some success
Helps if you get silver or gold membership while traveling.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
How do you ask for such without sounding like a weirdo?
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
No success here
Very successful
Unfortunately successful while traveling.
Some success
I have had success 7/10 times. Talking on the phone and discussing expectations helps, prior to travel.
Some success
Have enjoyed giving while traveling and met some amazing folks!
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I don't travel much with covid.
Some success
Not so much now as dont travel as much as i did but yes it worked with planning
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I have not even been successful in local let alone traveling
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
Be nice to connect while I take mini breaks
Some success
It’s harder but with proper planning it can be done.
Some success
I found that I have to set up the rub before I traveled. Exchange names, and numbers is best. Yes I realize that there could be potential issues exchanging info, but you just need to go with how comfortble you are with things.  This also works better, because yes there are alot of people, but check out their login in counter. Alot of folks don't  checkin regularly. Everybody I have had at my hotel rooms for massage has been good, as we were very comfortabke with mutal nudity, again set up before meeting. Having the massage in my hotel room really helps.
Tried but no success
After months of trying got very few responses to my emails. One requested a massage for that night which happened to be the only night I went for a nice dinner by myself so did not get the message until the next morning and it was too late.
Some success
I have had a couple trades, but usually when I travel. I can't host regularly at home.. Philly area has lots of paid therapists, but I can't always afford one.
Some success
When I used to travel I was somewhat successful, depending on where I stayed, etc. I've not traveled much in over two years thanks to COVID so . . .
Some success
I am a 25+ year "Road Warrior" and have traveled to every state except Alaska. Retired now but travel from Pa to NM every year with overnights in 4-4 major cities, like OKC, going out & back.So I have no problem driving 200+ or so miles, for a friendly Massage Exchange or a give only one for a Female, :)
Tried but no success
I have had no sucess traveling or at home. I am willing to travel 30-35 miles. I have replied to posts once in a while I get a no thank you reply most ignore me. I did get a yes reply but he was a no show. I will keep on trying
Very successful
Definitely easier for me to connect with a massage partner when traveling as I cannot host at home.
Some success
When travelling I generally can provide accommodation which solves the all-too-common "neither can host" problem when at home.
Very successful
Often it is easier to arrange an exchange when travelling because I have my massage table with me in the car and we use my hotel - hosting can be the tricky bit to arrange.
Some success
It takes some coordination and many fall through but some happened and they were wonderful
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
No massage is a bad one all good.
Tried but no success
Lack of courtesy replies
I'm only interested in local people
I tried no success not even local ones in Massachusetts never a reply even with my pictures on there lol
Some success
I’ve met a few people, mostly when traveling to larger cities
Tried but no success
I have reached out and even responded to some who contact me, but connections never happened. Too many flakes on here. Some just enjoy sending endless emails with no real intention of meeting.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
We intend to contact men this year as we travel in our RV.
Some success
If I've been active and had recent reviews and plan ahead, I've had some success but it's a challenge. Women get so many messages (including creepy ones) that they often stop responding - I've had several times when they've indicated interest and then didn't check their inbox until I'd left or there was no window to meet. It's just a reality of the site/community.

Once connected it's far easier to repeat (duh) but for 'regular guys' it can be a crapshoot. I don't take it personally - I just try to have good pictures and be transparent and fun in my communications.
Some success
I travel locally 30-40 mile range, but I have had some awesome exchanges with visitors traveling to the DFW Metropex. Most of the visitors are executives traveling for conferences, business meetings, company training, flight attendant layovers, but they usually have a short window of opportunity for exchanges, so scheduling is really the only challenging part with travelers. When our schedules line up, it's always a great exchange.
Tried but no success
I can't even get a reply off of most people I'd be willing to travel as far as possible but that doesn't help lol

Have only been successful here once
Some success
Travel much of the year so always interested. Covid is a huge limitation.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I just recently joined. It sounds interesting but I've not tried as of yet. But open to the possibilities.
Tried but no success
Found a longer lead time s required, as activity for locals in areas can be stagnant and not checking for. Connections often; therefore makin travel connects harder. Also see that places I travel; massagers are only looking for locals only.
I'm only interested in local people
I’ve been contacted by several guys traveling in my area. Their method is to contact everyone and choose one after a lot of back and forths.. Great for them, a waste of time for all but the chosen one.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
But I would prefer to go on a 30 to 40 mile radius
Some success
Pre-pandemic - Very limited - depends also on what country as some (like the US) has lots of possibilities whereas others (like Singapore or the UAE) do not. Had kinda given up and just try to source locally when there... That being said have not traveled Internationally for 2 years now for obvious reasons. Hopefully one day soon.
Some success
In my experience, most people are only interested in local massages, within 50 miles or less. They are wanting to find regular massages and are afraid of traveling male massagers. Also, as others have mentioned, nobody can plan ahead, and it's hard to find recent log ins. I have had 8 travel massages from this site in 5 years during about 12 weeks of travel.
Some success
Met lots of massage people on my travels!
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I would love to try it
Tried but no success
This whole site is disappointing, am I the only female as I get contacted by males who live hundreads of miles away. Nobody ever actually turns up once they realise it is only a massage
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I haven't traveled much since the pandemic.
Some success
Some success with travel massages using other apps & sites. Hoping MassageExchange.com will improve my success rate.
Very successful
i met some great people while traveling.
Tried but no success
Never have found success while traveling, very few people who have recently logged in.
I'm only interested in local people
I don't travel much anymore.
Some success
I hav had some success in finding massage partners when traveling.
I'm only interested in local people
if i can find any
Tried but no success
I find most guys say they want to exchange, but don’t follow though
Some success
I rarely have a long lead time to be able to set things up in advance. So success has been limited. But the times when I have connected make the effort worth it.
Some success
I had 4 while on different vacations, 3 were a success the other one thought it was a rub and tug. So far 75/25% good.
Some success
When I am going to be traveling I try to start looking around about 2 weeks before hand, Over the years I have managed to setup 7 different meets. Out of the 7, 4 turned into ghosts and 3 worked out to be very pleasant, and relaxing, encounters.
Tried but no success
Haven’t traveled for several years, but was never successful when I did.
Some success
Have had some good massage exchange experiences when traveling, takes more planning and good communication, but has always been worth it.
Some success
Met up with a great guy in Utah this past summer a few times.
Sounds interesting, but I've never tried!
I normally havent had the spare time, but things can chage
I'm only interested in local people
I don't travel much as I'm dependant on a co-owner for transportation. I have a studio set up at home and receive exclusively.
Some success
It has happened. There has been a few passing through London. Some don't turn up or get better offers. Helpful hint on successful communication might help. Giving no notice and expect you to be free is not a recipe for success. Understanding travel times across London is helpful too.
Some success
I had one very successful swap in Paris.
Some success
Slim pickins at my travel destination
