A Fujian man brought new meaning to the term “fire crotch” when he allowed his manhood to be set alight in a practice known as a ‘Fujian fire massage.’ Pictures of the man and his flaming groin area have sparked a major response from netizens Apple Daily reports.
The procedure began with the customer lying face-first down on a bed. The masseuse then poured alcohol-like fluid onto a wet towel and covered the man’s nether-regions with it, setting his groin area alight – and putting the “cock” in “Molotov cocktail” (heyo).
According to some reports, this type of fire massage can enhance muscle flexibility and relaxation, stimulate blood circulation and strengthen kidney function.
As shown in the pictures, the masseuse first placed a “Meridian (Chinese medicine) Rope” which claimed to have been soaked with more than 20 Chinese medicines on the back and private parts of the customer. After covering the body with plastic wrap and two layers of wet towels to prevent burning, she poured some alcohol to spark a flame which immediately started burning.
Some think there is a risk of burning (durrrrrrr). However, masseuses claim that they’re on hand with wet towels to prevent a “bush fire” from happening. In case the clients signify that they feel ‘hot and bothered,’ masseuses will snuff out the flames immediately.
They said that throughout the 3 cycles of the treatment, Chinese medicine on a rope will penetrate the human body with hot energy to achieves the aforementioned benefits of the massage. The feeling of a fire massage is warm and comfortable and the whole process feels like there is a hot stream gently infiltrating into our body, they added.
According to some Chinese physicians, the fire massage has a long history in Chinese medicine, but the masseuse must be qualified as it cannot cure every ailment. The duration of flames on the body and the strength of the flames also matters, so it’s crucial for customers to think twice before doing the massage.
Some netizens were interested in this “exciting” new therapy and claimed that they had tried it in beauty salons, while others thought it was just a dangerous gimmick that risks turning a man’s most prized possession into what netizens dub “roast turkey.” I would’ve gone with “roast woodpecker”……..
