In my experience, in the US and abroad, they start working on your back first, keeping your legs and butt draped. then they work on legs, keeping the other leg and butt draped. They will ask before they massage your butt cheeks. After they flip you over, usually keeping everything draped. working on the legs and arms, shoulders and neck area. they should keep your crotch, tummy and chest draped during these sequences. therapist will probably ask if you wish your stomach and chst massaged.

I also got my neck and scalp massaged.

If anything is uncomfortable for you, always speak up and ask for more drape, less pressure, skip an area etc. the massage therapist wants to please the client and make him/her comfortable. Again, they've seen everything and cannot possibly be offended when you ask for something specific.
