Massage is a great foreplay technique for couples looking for a way to get close. Unfortunately, many people are intimidated by giving a massage because they are afraid they’ll be bad at it. Here are some helpful tips + techniques for giving a sensual massage.
Find a quiet place. Location is everything. Pick a quiet spot where you won’t be interrupted – Put out the dog, or any other reminder of the world outside of the massage. This intimate time is meant to be an escape, so do everything you can to keep reality from killing the moment.
Set the massage mood. Now that you found a quiet spot, make the most of it! Atmosphere is vital to sensuality. Relax your partner with low lights & quiet music. Candlelight adds an air of romance and emits a soft glow that will flatter both of your bodies. Pure Romance has a few options for you, one of which is our Love Notes Black Velvet soy candle. This candle provides a little boost of romance, filling the air with the sensual smell of vanilla + amber. Take it one step further with our Burning Desire soy massage oil candle. This candle comes with a little stick of chalk for your partner to write a little “love note” on the jar for you. The best way to tell you exactly what they’re looking forward to… then blow the candle out + pour the soy massage oil ‘wax’ all over your partner for something really sexy! This candle also has a cute little lip to drip the wax… no mess! Don’t worry, it won’t hurt! Oh, but careful, nothing kills the mood like the sound of smoke alarms! 😉
Dress the part. Put a sensual spin on your night in by wearing something sexy. Ladies: Try some of Pure Romance’s barely-there lingerie, like our sheer white lace babydoll. Guys: Invest in a nice pair of boxers that will show off your body (and package!) and let you have some skin-to-skin contact with your partner during the massage.
Warm up. Use Pure Romance’s hot heart massagers so you don’t start the massage by giving your partner the chills. Have your partner lie face down while you stand behind their head and lightly stroke down their back on either side of the spine. On your way back up, gently caress their sides with your fingertips. Bump up the hot massage with our Heart Throb, the vibrating hot hand massager. They come in a pair, one for each hand! Double the fun! More vibrating fun can be brought from our Premiere finger vibrator. Although its main use is for clitoral stimulation, it can also act as an extra fun tool during a couples massage!!
Use massage oil or lotion. Few things in life are really win-win propositions, but the right massage oil will benefit you both. An oil (like our Aura!) or lotion decreases friction, allowing the hands to glide freely down the body. Not only does this feel amazing to the person receiving the massage, but it also allows the person giving it to rub longer without their hands tiring out.
Increase the pressure and the pleasure. You’ve got your lover primed and ready with some light touching, now it’s time for a deeper massage. Follow the flow of your partner’s muscles as you apply a bit more pressure with your palms. Focus on commonly tense areas like the shoulders and the back of the neck. To really relieve your partner’s tension, let your hands drift to the fun zone.
Take a sexy turn. Your hands are all over your partner’s body, so now it’s time to kick things up a notch. Think soccer rules…use anything BUT your hands. Kissing, licking, nibbling, and nuzzling are all allowed. Watch your lover quiver with delight and see where this hands-off approach takes you.
Ok, have at it! Your partner will thank you!! Thanks pureromance.com for the info! XO
