As much as I like watching movies, I don’t get the opportunity to go to the theater as much as I like so I do a lot of video rentals. Therefore it takes me a minute to see some of the highly publicized movies. Sometimes that’s a good thing. Case in point, Snakes On A Plane. The movie was totally overhyped and not that good, sorry Samuel L. The only surprise that I received was that my kids weren’t scared of watching the snakes. However, I’ve never been fond of those creatures, to this day.
There was a scene in the movie where a “thick” caucasian lady had a snake sliding up under her dress. She was a bit intoxicated, but seemed to be loving the contact that the snake was making, at least she gave that impression from her vocal emissions.
Seemingly she isn’t the only one to think snakes on the body feels good.
An Israeli health and beauty spa has introduced a new treatment to its menu — snake massage.
For 300 shekels ($70), clients at Ada Barak’s spa in northern Israel can add a wild twist to their treatment by having six non-venomous but very lively serpents slither and hiss a path across their aching muscles and stiff joints.
“I’m actually afraid of snakes, but the therapeutic effects are really good,” customer Liz Cohen told Reuters Television as Barak let the snakes loose on her body.
Barak uses California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes in her treatments, which she said were inspired by her belief that once people get over any initial misgivings, they find physical contact with the creatures to be soothing.
As far as massage goes, I think I’d prefer a sexy lady with a happy ending to slithering serpents. Not that I know anything about either, but I’m just saying.
