John Travolta's 'inappropriate behavior' got him tossed from Peninsula Hotel's massage spa: staff Travoltas stay on the blacklist was about three years, and followed a complaint to the hotels bosses, said Michael Caputo, a one-time Peninsula masseur
Staff at the swank Peninsula Hotel claimed John Travolta was banned after several creepy run-ins with the spas male employees.
But the temporary ban in the early 2000s was eventually lifted and the Pulp Fiction star was welcomed back, says a former staff member.
Travolta was banished to the Fifth Ave. hotels no-thigh zone after his inappropriate antics led to an insurrection, said Michael Caputo, a one-time Peninsula masseur.
Travolta would always request a man for his massage, but after a while no one would take him because of his inappropriate behavior, Caputo said.
It got to the point where they couldnt find any men to take him, and they had to ban him, recalled the masseur known as Magic Mike, who claimed he worked at the Peninsula from 1992-2008.

>>I hope this brings him down- but good.<<
He’ll get a medal for this in Hollywood.
Insurrection happens in college after 18 beers..
Actually, the details in the lawsuit about what he allegedly did and said are pretty damming. Especially the part about how the powerful hollywood homos told the young star to put out or he would not get the part.Nor is this claim the first time Hollywood moguls have been accused of hitting on young prospects,homosexuality, or even pedophilia.
Another aspect of the charges, if true, was that he was turned to the gay side by this coerced sex. The fact that young boys can be turned gay by older men is a severe breach of “liberal” dogma, so these details in the lawsuit will fall down the Memory Hole asap.
The first ‘accuser’ has been dropped by his attorney after it became clear that he was confused about exactly what date it was that Travolta allegedly assaulted him.
I put all my money on Marty Singer to WIN.
My husband is a medical massage therapist specializing in injury rehab. His practice is about 50%-50% men and women. I take his appointments and any male client who insists on only a female therapist is referred to someone else. We suspect that some of those who do not want a male therapist are seeking some degree of sexual release. Usually, when such a client is politely informed that this is a medical massage practice, they actually apologize for assuming it was sexual.
Glute work is done _through_ the sheets and all female clients wear gowns. He has Amish clients of both genders and many physician referrals. Actually, more women are insecure about a male therapist than men. When someone is hurting, they want expertise, above all. To anyone making assumptions about a male massage therapist, I want to know if they insist on a female proctologist or if they have reservations about any male MD who specializes in urinary or genital problems.
As to homosexuals, some are really disgusting and I wash the sheets, so this is a personal observation. Anyone who behaves in this manner is banned immediately, including being asked to leave in the middle of a session.
We have had female physician referrals where the MD warned us that the client had a history of presenting herself provocatively. In such instances, I will be present, usually charting. If that doesn’t dissuade the client, she is simply asked to find another therapist. We have licenses to protect and malpractice insurance to maintain. No one needs to be sued.
Massage is a legitimate modality for soft tissue injuries. It is not sexual. As another poster said, just ask any sports team. Deep tissue work, especially when practiced for 6 hours/day, is difficult physical work. Most women cannot sustain this sort of practice. It takes stamina, strength and athletic ability on the part of the therapist, who is trained in methods to mitigate the strain on their own hands and body.
I have worked on bodybuilders of both genders and I can tell you from experience that it is similar to attempting to massage a ham. I had to ice my hands after these sessions.
When I was in training, one of our male instructors gave us the best answer for any male making inappropriate demands:”We are only trained to work on _soft_ tissue.”
Well I guess Carrie Fisher knew what she was talking about. Must be a little tense around the Travolta household these days.
ok if you start to read the “petition” either lawyers in California can’t write or they let the paralegals draft the “petitions” and then sign them without reading them. I guess California must be a fact pleading case, because the incident is laid out in too much information style and is just revolting.
“California Legal Team” is the name of the “firm.” Thank you God, I don’t live in California.
I’d wager his wife knows.
If you read the complaint it says:
An enraged Travolta then screamed at the masseur and explained that he got where he is now due to sexual favors he had performed when he was in his Welcome Back Kotter days.
Hollywood, Travolta explained, is controlled by homosexual Jewish men who expect favors in return for sexual activity, adding that he had done things in his past that would make most people throw up.
Travolta remarked that when he started out, he wasnt even gay and that the taste of c** would make him gag. But he was smart enough to learn to enjoy it, and when he began to make millions of dollars, that it all became well worth it.
While not pedophilia it is abuse. Disgusting.
Slimmer fingers are a plus.
LOL! Well it could be moving from shrinkage.
So, basically, Travolta is a male whore. Albeit a well paid one.
Yeah, it does make me sick. But, sadly, there is probably no shortage of “men” who would make the same devils bargain.
But now he’s rich, has a beautiful wife, and could probably use his celebrity to get other beautiful woman and he chooses....a guy? He is mentally deranged.
I can respect that some people have medical problems and need to the strength of a male massuse.
Fortunately, I’m not in that category. However, I still treat myself to the occasional massage for relaxation and use female massues exclusively. As a man, I would feel really uncomfortable having another man touch me. Just couldn’t relax under those circumstances.
Yep, a Faustian bargain with the Devil.
(Heh, only kidding...it was something in the way you wrote it that brought that image to mind immediately!)
