Follow our tips to give your partner the ultimate sensual massage that will leave them begging you for more.
Set the tone
Before you even start thinking about limbering up your hands for a massage you need to set the tone.
Choose a comfortable location - the bed or sofa - and take the time to clean it of any distractions or reminders of household chores (such as dirty plates or piles of washing). Dim the lights, if you have a dimmer switch, and light a few strategic candles, making sure that they are placed safely and won't pose a fire hazard.
Sprinkle rose petals across the floor and bed or sofa and put on some soft, soothing music that will allow your partner to truly relax and thus heighten their senses.
Get what you need
Next, you need to make sure you have everything you need to give a good massage. Take the time to stretch and loosen your own joints by slowing working your hands. This will help to prevent the risk of developing cramp mid-massage and disappointing your partner by stopping.
You also need to invest in some suitable massage oils and other bits of kit to help you do the job. An intimate massager is great for really working those erogenous zones and lavender oils are always good for helping encourage relaxation.
It's important to check for any allergies before applying these to your partner though - the last thing you want is for their massage to end in a nasty rash, or worse!
With everything prepared, it's time to start the massage. There are many different areas of the body you can focus on but combining them all together in a single session will provide the ultimate erotic massage.

Start with a head massage, rubbing the temples and forehead before working your way slowly down the neck. Move in closely and let your partner feel your breath against their neck - you can even gently massage or nibble their earlobes for added arousal.
Apply a little oil here and work your fingers along their neck and collar bone in long, slow movements that build sexual desire. Tease them by lightly touching just above their chest before moving onto their arms. You'll come back to the chest later!
Once you've finished massaging the arms, it's time to move to the other end of the body. The feet are one of the most sensitive parts of the body so take your time here and applying gentle but firm pressure while working your way up and down from heel to toe.
Move on from the feet by massage the legs. Work slowly and start at the ankles before moving up the calves, sliding your hand from the outside to the inside as you progress higher.
Once past the knee, gently run your hand up the inside of the thigh - partly your lovers legs slightly as you do. As you reach their groin, switch to the outside again and tease them by gentle caressing or catching their most intimate area every now and again.
By this point, you should both be feeling pretty aroused so it's up to you how much longer you prolong your pleasure. You can end it her by starting to rub your partner and engage in other acts of foreplay or you can continue the massage a little longer.
Returning to the chest for the sexiest massage of all or getting your partner to roll over and passing their buttocks are both sure-fire ways to leave your lover moaning in ecstasy. The choice is yours.
