Art Of Sensual Massage
The art of sensual massage begins in your mind. What turns you on? What turns your partner on? With sensual massage, you can bring all the senses together into the act of touching your partner and create a world of pleasure for you both.
- Gather what you'll need to set the mood. Light candles, burn incense, and bring out some essential oils. Lavender, patchouli, ylang ylang, and sandalwood are all good scents for your sensual arsenal. Choose a massage oil to use as a carrier for your essential oils and to use on your partner's skin. Coconut oil, food-grade almond oil, and jojoba oil are all safe to use both outside and inside the body.
- Prepare a space for the sensual massage. A bed is the best place for this type of massage, but use everything at your disposal to make this a transporting experience for your lover. Use sheets with a high thread-count to make a soft space for your lover's enjoyment. Pay attention to the colors you use: purples, reds, whites, and blacks all evoke their own kind of sensual atmosphere. Stay away from silk and satin if you will be using a massage oil or essential oils, which will ruin delicate fabrics.
- Create a mood with music and lighting. The mood you want to create is up to you. Sensual massage can be very relaxing. Nature sounds, ambient music, and meditation music will all help to create an atmosphere of relaxation. You could also choose music designed to stimulate and arouse. Dim the lights as much as possible when preparing for a massage. Candlelight is a good choice as long as you take safety precautions. Keep all candles on a sturdy surface far from flammable objects. Lava lamps, lighted tabletop fountains, room lights on a dimmer switch, and night lights are all good lighting options.
- Lay down with your partner and begin to touch each other slowly. You'll know when it is the right kind of touch; it will feel good to you and your partner will close her eyes and make appreciative noises. Go slowly as you explore each other's bodies. Taking your time this way can be its own goal, or it can lead to amazing orgasms for you both. Remember that sensual massage is as much about how you feel about the person you're with as it is about the sensations it causes. Relax into the sensuality of the massage and you'll feel yourself taken away by the intensity and enormity of what you are doing. Sensual massage can be like a meditation. It brings everything to a single point of focus. Your hands are on her body. Your breath fills your lungs. You are here, with the one you love. And it is breathtaking.
