Massage Questions (sorry no snarky title)

First time massage. It's a legit massage. I'm a guy, I wonder if I should get a guy or a girl to do it? Not sure which would be more awkward really. What is the norm for this sort of thing? Also, what are the norms of tipping? I can barely tip functionally at restaurants without getting anxious. I don't even know where to begin with what to tip for a massage.

Truckers Delight?

Travelling on I81 in central Pennsylvania there are several large, sleazy billboards advertising places to get a "massage." From the billboard, it's hard not to get the impression that you will get more than a massage at the advertised establishment (the billboard gives an address.) What's going on here?

High-end gay-friendly day spa in San Francisco?

I want to buy a gift certificate to a day spa for a twenty-something gay man with upscale conservative taste. I'm looking for a place that's sleek, sophisticated and oriented towards men, with good massage and other services, high standards for service and cleanliness, and ideally also offering lunch and cocktails. The kind of place where someone could lounge around all day drinking a mimosa and reading the paper, wearing slippers and a robe. It needs to be in San Francisco proper, not elsewhere in the Bay Area. [more inside]

What style of massage is the "ordinary" kind?

What "style" of massage would you ask for from a professional if you wanted the kind of massage a normal person would give you (but done better) -- a pinching (in a good way) sort of massage without lotion or oil? Swedish seems to have a lot more rolling, and deep tissue is generally much more focused and greater pressure, and both seem to mostly use lotion/oil.

Meeting up with a friend in Marseille and taking the car down to the Pyrenées for a few days of fun and relaxation (aka vacation). Have never been to Andorra before, nor this region. We're keen on both gastronomic (local food and wine) and bodily pleasures (spa's, massage), which are much needed since we're both in the software development line of work.
