2. Master the Basics
Before I get into specific techniques, you should know some really fundamental stuff about backrubs:
>> Pressure is key. The right amount of pressure is crucial, separating a relaxing massage from a brutal deep-tissue session. It varies from woman to woman, but when in doubt, go harder and work toward softer.
>> Start at the top and work your way down. Then work your way back up from the bottom. Similarly, start toward the spine, then work back outward from there.
>> Once you’ve done the full top-to-bottom go through, give her a knuckle walk from the bottom to the top and back again. You know what I mean—knead your knuckles up and down her back.
>> Talk to her while you do it. Not only will you get feedback on what she likes, what she doesn’t like and what she wishes you were doing that you aren’t, it shows her how sensitive, responsive and awesome you will be in even more intimate situations… which is pretty much why you’re doing this in the first place, right?
