Paid to Bite
Architectural Digest recently did a profile of Dr. Dot Stein who is the person celebrities have on speed dial when they want a good massage. Before we even get into the Mariah Carey story, you have to understand what Sting, Kanye West and Lady Gaga pay Stein at least $150 an hour to do. They don’t just pay her. They fly her around the world and call her up in the middle of the night.
Stein bites them. Yes, celebrities pay this woman to sink her teeth into them. Stein – or Dr. Dot as Frank Zappa christened her – told the magazine: “Ninety-five percent of the people I massage want to try it. Once they have it, they want it every time.
“It’s like an appetizer at a meal. You start out with the bite to tenderize the back. There’s no other feeling in the world like it.”
