Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

4 Cheshvan 5766
Question
Can one go to one of these Chinese places that give massages on chairs, where you keep your clothes on, and she only massages your neck and back? Absolutely no sexual activity occurs, it’s just a back massage by a woman.
Answer
If for medical purposes – yes, if for pleasure – no. (Shulchan Aruch EH 21; 5)
