The Associated Press article SAN FRANCISCO — When is it okay to have gay massage?
What’s the right time for a gay massage and how much time should be spent?
These are the questions San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was asked at a Wednesday morning news conference after the team’s first practice of training camp.
“I think that it’s really important for everyone to get a sense of the context and context of what we’re doing and what’s going on in our society,” Harbaugh said.
“We need to have a conversation about the right and wrong.
I don’t know if that’s the best way to do it. “
I don’t think that we should be trying to legislate it or force it.
I don’t know if that’s the best way to do it.
But it’s a discussion that we need to engage in.”
While Harbaugh spoke, teammates Kevin Norwood and Josh Cribbs were at the podium.
CribBS said he’s not sure if gay massage is appropriate.
“You don’t have to be gay to have fun.
We’ve had a lot of fun,” Cribs said.
Cribbs said that if it were a man he would have had a different reaction.
“If you were gay, you could just go out there and enjoy yourself,” Cibbs said.
“We’re here today to help each other, and it’s just a natural thing to do.”
When asked if he thinks gay massage can be appropriate for gay athletes, Harbaugh said he believes that “it can and should be.”
“If it’s for a medical purpose, I think it’s something that can be done,” Harbaugh added.
“But I also believe that you don’t need to be a homosexual to enjoy that.
I just think it should be something that you can do with others as well.”
The 49ers, who opened training camp Wednesday, will face the Chicago Bears on Thursday.
Harbaugh said the team will take the field Saturday at 4 p.m. at Candlestick Park.
