I am the receiver. It's not because I don't want to give my boyfriend back rubs. He just doesn't really like them. Plus, I NEED them. Periodically, he pushes on my back and rubs it in various spots. It's not actually pleasant, usually. But he does it because it helps with my chronic back pain. I'm only 22 and I live daily with pain that makes it hard to simply bend over and pick up a pencil or something without hurting.

No, unfortunately not. I'm far too poor for that or else I'd have gone years ago for my chronic anemia, as well. Lol. I'm basically a wreck.

I am more likely to give but I have a realy bad nerve problem in my back that gets so bad that I cannot walk if certain muscles are manipulated and relaxed. Both of my guys have seen the effects and are understandably gun shy about doing a full back massage. Now leg, hand and arms they will do and I am so grateful!

Boyfriend gives great back rubs.

I do probably 90-95% of them. I guess that's the perk to dating a professional massage therapist.

I always get them. My back is normally hurting from plumbing and lifting a lot.

I rub her back more often, but if I ever ask for one she 99% of the time will be sweet enough to.

It's balanced, but for unfortunate reasons! I suck at giving back rubs, and also don't like receiving them, so they just don't happen very often. I do love having my back stroked though, so if that counts then it's very unbalanced

I give way more than I get! Part of it is Service, which I don't mind.

Part of it is he's always asking for back rubs, I mean, every day, several times a day. If he sees me sitting watching TV in the evening, he'll position himself in front of me so I can massage his back and neck with my feet. He begs for them morning and night. OK, he doesn't "beg" he just moans and says, "OMG, could you rub my back?" Then, he usually falls asleep.

When I want a back rub, and end up getting one, it nearly always results in sex. He can't seem to rub me without getting turned on. Not that I mid.

this sounds familiar. I get big hints about giving a backrub if I am ever nearby with a hand to spare. And then I do often try to progress into sex after that lol.

We're pretty balanced, depends more on who is stressed at the time

I';m usually the giver, but I receive them sometimes.

My husband turns into a purring kitten when he gets his back rubbed. I do it all the time. It recharges his batteries when he gets any sort of back attention, and because of the physical size difference between us, it's like I'm Calvin curling up to his big tiger. I occasionally get back rubs, but I'm okay with the imbalance of back attention. It makes him so much happier than it does me.

I end up receiving more. I'd say it's about a 3:1 ratio.

Depending on my mood, I would say fairly balanced, with me receiving more. I do sometimes become uncomfortable with receiving them just because of the positioning.

Generally the giver. I'm the kind of person who feels obligated to do something if asked, and (as much as I love backrubs) whenever my hubby gives me one it's only for a minute or two.

I'd like to say it's balanced between us but I'm usually the giver.

My boyfriend loves giving them, he doesn't often ask for them back, even if I offer. Back pain runs in my family though, he doesn't seem to have that issue. His SHOULDERS though, I do try to give him periodic neck/shoulder rubs, he gets knots like crazy from stress.

I'm terrible at them and have famously weak hands, so I started doing this more to get better. It's become such a habit that we do this more than other common signs of affection like hugging or kissing--but it's still maybe a once to thrice a day thing. I may do it a little more often than my partner. He has really strong hands and has to be careful!!

I'm a great receiver, and while I try, I can never replicate the feeling

I give them to him more often but he will give me one if I ask. I just love to touch him!
