Intimacy through touching takes you to a deeper realm where no other senses can take you. Your hands, mouth and the most erogenous zones in your body all comprise of skin that has the most sensitive nerve endings. These areas give you the maximum pleasure when it comes to making love. But making love is not the only way to have sensual touch; another way to have it is through erotic sensual massage.
An erotic sensual massage usually targets erogenous areas such as the chest and pelvic areas because the ultimate goal is for couples to have quality sex after the massage. So in a way, it is a kind of foreplay. You want to bring your partner to the state of sexual readiness by bringing her whole being into it - mind, body and soul, through the pleasures of an erotic sensual massage.
Massage in itself uses the sense of touch as its major selling point but the mood needed for an erotic sensual massage incorporates all the other 4 senses to bring this experience to a whole new level. Prepare for this event by stimulating the other senses for maximum effect.
Sight. Lighting is crucial to create a romantic ambience. So close the curtains turn off the harsh lights and light up some candles to set the mood. The bed will be the center of activity so it should be neat and tidy. Another requirement for your bed is it can't be too soft. For an erotic sensual massage to be effective you'll need resistance opposing the gentle pressure you'll be applying to certain points of your partner's body. If the bed is too soft, you'll need to ask her to move to the floor with layers of blankets for cushion.
Smell. Use the power of aromatherapy to set a relaxing mood for your erotic sensual massage. Essential oils don't only provide soothing smells but act as aphrodisiacs as well. Some recommended essential oils for this type of occasion are ylang ylang, rose, jasmine and sandalwood. Let the smell permeate the room before she enters. To make your erotic sensual massage even more special you can use aroma oils - in calming scents or fragrant lotion to use on her body. You don't have to apply these things on your partner if she doesn't want, but if you do, make sure that she is not allergic to it.
Sound. You can also add a soft, gentle music for this special time. A lot of music is available to set this type of mood. Some are instrumental and some are slow songs sung by various artists. Music adds dimension to the experience of an erotic sensual massage so don't ignore it.
Taste. Have something ready for both of you to drink or eat before, during or after the activity. Massage takes a lot from the giver (the one doing the massaging) as it is a physical activity so take mini breaks during your erotic sensual massage. Have some water or wine and fruits to refresh you and your partner.
Touch. Last but not the least, know the techniques of a sensual massage. Your goal is to make your partner feel good by giving her that extra special touch that is not only felt superficially but can be felt deep within the body. An erotic sensual massage makes full use of your hands, fingertips, wrists, knuckles and even elbows, to apply pressure points to parts of your partner's body including the erogenous zones. This will relieve stress, give an over all sense of well being, and hopefully get her ready for quality sex.
An erotic sensual massage is one of the best gifts you can give your partner, an experience even made more special because someone who loves and deeply cares for her is giving it. Do it right and it will be an experience your love one will never forget.
