Frequently Asked Questions


Do you charge for posting ads?

Yes. Managing and promoting the site costs us quite a bit of time & money, so we have to charge for ads. The site doesn't allow any advertising outside of the body rub providers because we want the focus to be on the service providers and the clients looking for them.

The ad fees are very competitive and easy to understand.  We accept all major credit cards, and we don't have any confusing Bitcoin purchases or anything like that. Your ad is published instantly upon payment. You only have to create a listing once unless you're an agency posting for multiple providers or you want multiple ads.

You can add additional promotion time to your ad by logging in and purchasing more add-ons.

Why is my Backpage ad on the site?

We import ads that have been published elsewhere as a service to potential clients. This allows them a sleek interface to view or contact body rub service providers and post reviews.

If you'd like your ad removed, there is a simple form you can fill out at the bottom of your city's ad page.

You can also claim the ad and start promoting it on RubRatings to reach our users.

How do I post a listing?
  1. In the menu above, visit the city you'd like to post in under 'View Ads'.
  2. On your city site there will be a big pink button at the top that says 'Post Ad'.
  3. Follow the steps from there.
Should I verify my users? How?

You can use a verification service. At least use a 2 call system where you don't provide the address until it's time for the appointment.

Should I learn massage technique?

Many don't bother with this, but it's highly recommended. Clients know the difference between someone who has studied massage technique and someone who hasn't. The reviews & return visits reflect that as well. We'll be posting techniques and best practices to help you get started in the near future.

Do I have to have a massage table?

That would be best, but many providers just use a soft surface like a bed.

How much should I accept for a donation?

This varies wildly. The lowest is usually around $80 for a session ranging from 30 - 60 minutes. Higher end usually goes up to $180 - $200. If you're just starting out, $100-$120 for an hour is fair.

Should I be independent or join a service?

If you join a service they handle a lot of the issues like payment collection, verification, safety, scheduling, etc. But they take a cut obviously. It's really up to the person, some like both. You can always try out working for an agency first and then set off on your own.

How do I get support if I need it?

Once you create a user on your city's site, there will be a support button where you can contact the admin staff.

Do reviews contain private information about me or the session?

Reviews are meant to be objective overviews of the body rub or massage session and don't contain any private information about you or the session. All reviews are approved by our admin staff before publishing, and any lewd, abusive, sexual/expletive language is deleted.

What if the reviews are fake?

Fake reviews are an issue that every review site faces (Amazon, Yelp, etc). All reviews are approved by admin staff, and we tried to eliminate any review that is obviously fake, abusive, or inflammatory. Fortunately, the real reviews over time expose the fake ones. It's recommended that you encourage your clients to post positive reviews so you can improve your reputation and greatly increase your traffic and earnings. Potential clients love to see good reviews.
