Sensual massage

You’ve set the scene and now you can begin. Pleasure is about to be shared between you and your loved one – and you don’t know exactly where the massage will take you. Massaging is ideal for improving the bond between you and your partner, and you’ll get to experience deeper levels of pleasure the more you do it. The excitement is heightened as you explore each other slowly, strengthening the bond between the two of you.


Start the massage with no preconceptions and try to clear your mind as you relax your partner; giving a massage can be as de-stressing as receiving one. Being intimate with your partner will trigger positive, arousing and happy thoughts for you.


All-over body massage

Ask your partner to lie face down, sit astride them and warm a suitable gel in your hands. Then gently place your palms on where you intend to begin – usually the shoulders. Start massaging slowly and gently, and then start to experiment with different techniques. Try long and short strokes, firm and gentle pressure, circular motions, and long strokes down the back.


Pay attention to all of the body – don’t forget the scalp, the ears, the fingers, the calves, the buttocks and the toes. Focusing on areas that are usually neglected will make your partner feel important, like every inch of them is important to you. To make the massage more scintillating, caress intimate areas rather than just touching them. Use your palms, fingers, knuckles, elbows, breasts, chest, lips and tongue.


Deep tissue manipulation massage

Your massage could take the form of gentle touching, or deep tissue manipulation – find out which works best for your partner. A mixture of the two is a great place to start. The aim is to ease out the tension that’s held in the body, through manipulation of the muscles.


If the experience does develop into more of an erotic massage, move onto a gel that is compatible with condoms. That way, if the mood takes you, the next stage will be seamless.


Massage each other to experience the pleasure and repeat what you liked best to prolong the moment. The impact of a proper sensual massage will be a lasting one!
