Dorothy Stein, 48, from New Jersey was nicknamed Dr Dot by musician Frank Zappa in her early days of bite massage, when she used her unique skills to nab free concert tickets and meet her favourite rock stars backstage.
Since then, Dr Dot has massaged – and bitten – an impressive roster of stars, including one famous band who were “massage virgins."
Journalist, Elena Pogosyan, visited Dr Dot for one of her renowned massages.
Elena said: “I was a little bit apprehensive about getting bitten by a woman I’ve never met. I didn’t want to walk into a 50 shades of Grey scene.”
But most of Dr Dot’s clients are eager to sample her talents. A certain British music mogul is a big fan.
Dr Dot revealed: “He loves a gentle bite massage.”
Other celebrities demand a more “sensual” approach. Dr Dot says that one female rockstar demands her to: ‘Massage my tits, Dot,’” she said.
She added: “I’ve never bitten boobs though.”
Dorothy made her first forays into therapeutic biting at the age of five, encouraged by her “hippy” mother.
She said: “She wanted me to massage her but my hands weren’t strong enough, so she just kept on saying ‘Bite me! Bite me!’ So I’ve been doing this my whole life!”
At 15, Dr Dot gave her first backstage massage to rock band, Def Leppard.
She said: “I wanted to get into shows for free and meet the people who wrote the lyrics that were so close to my heart.
“It was a choice of either blowjobs or money or massage. So I chose massage.”
Since then, Dr Dot has traded her services to see over 3,000 concerts for free.
Giving free massages helped build her reputation, and she now charges around $150 for a massage session – with no extra fee for biting.
Dr Dot says she isn’t fazed by unpleasant odours or bodily responses.
“I’ve seen it all and smelt it all,” she explained.
“It’s almost impossible to get a massage and not get a hard-on. Women get erect nipples, men get erect penises.
“I don’t mention it – I’ll just throw a towel over their dick!”
Elena was certainly surprised at how much she enjoyed it.
She said: “It felt like someone biting my back – there’s literally no other way to explain it, but it feels good.
“I’ll never forget this experience because it’s not every day I have a woman biting my back or my neck or playing with my feet or biting my butt.”
Dr Dot usually starts her sessions with biting – she describes it as the “appetiser to the full meal.
She bites their backs and buttocks, before rubbing oil on their skin and moving on to a more traditional massage.
Currently writing a memoir of her experiences, Dr Dot is proud the technique she pioneered is gaining ground. She now has an army of employees – 1,000 “Dot Bots” trained in bite massage who deploy their services all around the world.
